Ok, I am on my way to bed, but of course I HAD to stop by one of my favorite online shopping sites…Yep, you guessed it, ETSY.com! 🙂 If you have been following my blog, you know that I am addicted to the place…Lately, I have been trying to keep in under control! **sigh**

Anyway, like I said, I stopped by Etsy and was only browsing a few seconds before I found these brooches available from cocoonwillfly. They’re just lovely! Go on over and take a look at her other goods…Delightful…Just delightful!

Rita Patel creates a variety of one of a kind pieces in the comfort of her Michigan studio. Her works include art, home goods, and clothing.

She has her own website at www.ritapatel.com, but she is fairly new on the Etsy scene, opening her online shop in December 2006. On Etsy.com is where I first saw her beautiful, one-of-a-kind silk and velvet coats. They are among some of the most elegant ones I have come across.

Take a look at her lovely coats and fall in love…with the coats of course. 🙂

Fred Ullom makes some beautiful cashmere scarves, all of which are made by hand. He says that he strives for “subtle elegance” and has an undeniable passion for the finest natural fibers.

“My scarves are frequently more of a tactile experience than a visual one. Usually a mix of hand-dyed silk and Mongolian cashmere, they are superior in both lustre and hand. When available, rare fibers such as Saxon merino, yak, camel, and qiviut (muskox) occasionally make their way into my pieces.” – Fred
