Merry Christmas!

We had a very sweet (and quiet) Christmas day, and it was quite delightful!  Guy and I are very blessed with a healthy and happy family and the good comforts of life.  And Christmas (for us) is always a great time to reflect on that.  

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (Chanukah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice).  I hope it was filled with the joy of children opening presents, good food, family and friends, and all the love you can hold!

Stop by Zaftig Delights this week and check out our new CLEARANCE section with items that have been marked down 40% or more off the original price for a quick sale.  We'd love to move some of these delightful items off to a new home to make room for more new items I've been working on.  Be sure to watch out shoppe in the new year for lots of wonderful new handmade items to purchase.  

I also opened up a second Etsy shoppe Le Petite Merchantile.  It is my "destash" shoppe, where you will find, fabric, unused fashion patterns, yarn, notions, findings, beads and lots of unique and interesting supplies.  I hope you will stop by and check out our goodies.  We have some really great bargains!!

I'm now on Cafe Press!

I've had a lot of requests for Ts, and other logo goodies that feature my "Zaftig" girl logo.  So here it is, just in time for the holidays.  My Zaftig Delights Cafe Press Store!  There you can order plus size Ts up to a 5X (30/32), other adult Ts, mugs, mousepads, teddy bears, note cards, sticker, and even a cute Doggie T for your "Zaftig" puppy.  :o)

Cafe Press is easy to order from, and they ship directly to you after printing.  They a very fast turn around, so no delay if you are wanting something in time for Christmas.

I'm going to work on getting some larger Ts for sizes above 5X, and will let you know when they are available.  Here are how a few of the items on Cafe Press look printed up.

Don't you love the Tudors?!

Are any of the rest of you completely hooked on the Showtime series, The Tudors?  I rented the entire first season's episodes last month, and couldn't tear myself away from the TV!

The acting is top notch. Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Henry VIII, is like no King Henry you've ever seen. He is a sexy and hard bodied young man filled with passion and intense ambition.  The locations and authenticity of the costumes are a visual treat.  The hot steamy sex is .... well, it is some seriously hot steamy sex! Fabulous series filled with palace intrigue and royal drama .  I can't wait for the 2nd season to become available on DVD.  Gotta have it!! 

In the meantime, I satisfied my need for all things Tudor, by making the necklace you see here.  It is an altered art portrait necklace of a lesser known painting of Henry and Anne Boleyn in happier times. He looks at her adoringly, and she being coy, looks away from him.   It is set in antique brass, with lovely Czech glass charms and little brass crowns.  It is finished with a toggle clasp and is 24" long.  You can find it in my Etsy stop here - The Tudors Portrait Necklace.

Don't miss the 2nd season of The Tudors on DVD available soon! 


Some fun and fabulous Holiday earrings were added to my store this week.  With the current special on earrings (buy 2 get one free - see shoppe announcement) you can match all your Holidays party outfits!!

Happy Holiday shopping!!  ~ Sandie Clause  :o)

We've added some cute new clothing items in super sizes that would be perfect for your holiday parties or New Year's Eve. They are all hand painted by me, and embellished with genuine Swarovski faceted crystals. Here's a sneak peek...

This beautiful cape is made from a stunning piece of heathered purple medium weight wool that I bought in Scotland. The mills even gave me their custom "woven in Scotland" tag to put in the cape. It is very full cut, with patch pockets on the front, and pretty pewter thistle buttons at the sides, pockets and front closures. The cape is perfect for layering over something light weight in the Spring and Fall, and heavier sweaters or even a jacket in the Winter. It drapes beautifully, and is quite warm.

This is a one size fits plus and super sizes from 3X (26/28) to 8X (44/46). It measures 110" across the hips, and is 39" long.

I can also make this cape up for you in other fabrics as well as wool, both solids and plaids. Just convo me for more details.

This cape is my design, and was hand made by me, (with great attention to detail) in my Southern California studio.
