New Item: Ceramic Clip

Hanging Ceramic Clip for photo, a favorite poem, a cherished card or a reminder note

Hanging Ceramic Clip for photo, a favorite poem, a cherished card or a reminder note

There have been some items that I have made over the years that end up as a personal favorite. This has not always meant that my customers like them so much, but this little clip is one of those items that I like a lot!

It’s a little piece of handmade art that can hang on your wall (or in your cubical at work) and will securely hold a photo, a cherished greeting card, favorite poem, or just a reminder note. This isn’t your ordinary clip. It grabs what you choose to display securely and can be easily changed as needed.

This one has an impression of the unique design found on the bottom of an old candy dish. It was impressed into clay and created a stamp for me to use over and over on many of my clay pieces. I may use these clips on some holiday ornaments, too, but I haven’t decided what should hang at the bottom for that purpose.

Happy fall, everyone! (The weather looks to be very fall-like for the next few days! Enjoy it!)

Lavender Sachet Pillows for October Picket Fence Boutique

Sachet Pillows measure 8"x10"

Sachet Pillows measure 8″x10″


I still need to stitch these little cat pillows closed. I will have about a dozen of these ready for Picket Fence Boutique October 6, 7 & 8 in Omaha. They have pillow stuffing, but inside of each one, I have a lavender sachet (rice and essential oil) tucked inside. They smell great. Lavender is known for its calming scent. These would be great on a shelf, near an air vent or even in the car. If it is in a warm spot, the scent will come out nicely. Once the scent fades over time, the handmade pillow is still cute as can be. I hand illustrated each one…giraffes, cats, raccoons, bears and used vintage linen as my canvas. The backs are coordinating upholstery fabric.

Something different — not made of clay!
I may spruce them up with some type of button. What do you think?

Have a great week!
