Can be hung anywhere a little scent will soothe or perk up an area such as a car, garage, closet, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, pet areas and more. Kristen's picture does them justice!

Delightful Leather Cell Phone Cases



These little cell phone cases are just too cute! Made of leather with fun and funny animal faces. They probably won't hold the super large phones (I can get larger cases) but there's plenty of room for my 5 3/4 inch Samsung. Would also be great as a change or other small purse or holder. (Knitting notions, anyone? There are a couple of colors available for most of the styles; contact me if you have a preference. Ship or pickup in Meadows of Dan! $19.99 plus shipping.

Beautiful Horse Wall Art from SPLASHWORKS



I'm in love with these beautiful fabric wall art pieces from Splashworks in High Point, North Carolina. I ordered these before all the shutdown hit and didn't want to cancel because this is another small company. They've been terrific to work with and the product is lovely. The pieces are on the web site and right now I have them as pickup only. I'm not sure how to handle shipping but if you're interested, contact me at leslie.shelor@gmail.com,

Bursting With Color



I'm absolutely getting a lot of work done with the shop closed although I really miss seeing everyone. It's hard to close when everything was going so well but there are too many people at risk to take the chance of having a non-essential business open here. In the meantime, I've had a lot of fun dyeing some bright yarns and I've put them up here on the web site. Just follow the "Shop Online" button and click on "Especially for Knitters." Also great for crocheters and weavers; all that wouldn't fit on the button! Please note that some colors don't show true on some monitors. The brown is really a deep and rich color and the iris is a deep and uniform purple/blue with light and dark.
