It's getting cold outside!!

It's that time of year.  Daylight savings goes back to Standard time November 2, and it definitely getting cold outside.  Brrrrrrrrr!  

It's time to put away the summer and transitional clothes and get out your winter garments.  Things to wrap you up in warmth and fend off the Autumn chill.  And, I have just the thing for you.  A lovely hand knitted hat and matching scarf.  Shown here is my Dredlocs Hat, which has pretty braids and curly yarn coming from the top (like a pony tail).  This gorgeous yarn used, resembles the vintage curly lamb coats from the 1960's - thick and warm with an inviting bumpy texture that makes you want to snuggle in.  The yarn is a soft belnd of Superfine Alpaca, Peruvian Highland Wool, and Nylon.  This hat and scarf is currently available in these pretty Petal and Plum colors.  Perfect to brighten up your fall or winter day.  

Another favorite in our store, is our Plush Scarf, and matching Bandeau Headband.  The Plush Scarf is a fluffy and extra long scarf that will wrap you in plush softness.  Our Bandeau Headband buttons in the back at the nape, giving you a great way to keep your ears and head warm without mussing your hair.  This set shown below is in a lovely forest green, and like all my knitwear is hand knitted my me in my Southern California studio.  

There is nothing like hand knitted goodies to make your winter lovely.  They also make wonderful Holiday gifts, and stocking stuffers!  Drop me a message through my Etsy store, , if you have any questions or want to discuss a custom order.

The Zaftig Goddesses are here!!!

I've had people request I make up more of my glass Zaftig goddess pendants, and I'm happy to report that I have some now up for sale in my Etsy store. The pictures here are what is currently available. I think this batch turned out particularly pretty. They come in three different colors of beautiful borosilicate glass.  Amber, (left) that looks like a swirling caramel or salt water taffy.  Aqua (below), features beautiful ocean colors, and Black (below), which looks like it is swirled with some pretty eggplant (purple) colors.  They either come embellished, on sterling, antique silver or antique copper chains with fancy toggles and Swarovski crystal charms.  Or, they come on color matching suede cords with metal toggle clasps.  

If you celebrate the rounded female form, then this little goddess is a must for your "fat positive" jewelry collection.  If you have any special requests or questions regarding our Zaftig goddess, be sure to send me a message thru my Etsy store.
