The Dorothy Days- New items for 2013

Hello everyone,

I have been busy busy busy these last few days creating some new items to sell in my Etsy shop. My shop is now the fullest it has ever been and I am really pleased with all my new items :-) and how the shop is looking now it is a bit fuller.

I thought I would share with you all some of the newest items that I have made for the shop. Would love to hear what you all think about them.

First up is my new range of flower earrings. I am really pleased with how these came out, they are really pretty.

What do you all think of them? and which colours do you like the best? I would love to hear your feedback so I know which are the best ones to make. I am hoping that they will be popular on my Etsy shop and also offline when I do my craft stalls. My rose earrings are usually really popular when I take them to my craft stalls and are one of my best sellers offline so I am hoping that people will like this new range too. For orders online they come packaged in an organza gift bag which I thought was nice as it makes it feel like a treat to get it through the post.

As well as listing the new earring range I also listed some scrap-booking  craft / art supplies. They are packs of 10 double sided pages of a beautiful vintage encyclopedia which is from the 1970s. They have wonderful pictures in 70s colours (lots of browns, light blues and greens) and because the encyclopedia is a British one it mainly focuses on British history, maps, species native to Britain etc which I found really interesting.

I also have been busy making some anklets. Braided cord is really in fashion at the moment and I thought braided cord anklets with cute little charms would be perfect for the summer months. I made a trial one for myself and have been wearing it all the time, I love it! So I have made two for my shop in different colours and with different charms. I will be wearing mine loads in the summer months with a pair of flipflops or sandals but by wearing my trial one I have also realised they can be worn all year round. They are also adjustable to fit different sizes 

and finally I also made some more crystal bracelets for my shop. I made a few for the shop just before Christmas and sold one which I got really lovely positive feedback for so I decided to make a few more to go in my shop in different colours. Some with the smaller crystal beads and some with the larger crystal beads. They are really sparkly and catch the light in the most lovely way which makes them look really pretty to wear but were tricky to photograph up close for my shop as the sparkles of light kept dotting about everywhere!!! Took me a long time to get the photographs right but it was worth it and I am pleased with the results.

This is how I am packaging them to send, in a pretty organza gift bag.

Also available in: Graphite
                                        and Midnight black

Didn't realise how many new items I had in my shop until I started listing them all on here! What do you all think about my new items? and which one is your favourite? Would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment in the comment section below.

Have a fantastic day :) .
Best wishes

  1. They're all lovely - good luck with them. You deserve to get lots of orders for all of them.

    Happy New Year! Isobel from

  2. That is a hard choice between which color of earrings I like best! Hmmm, probably the light pink, green, or turq. Haha! That probably doesn't help that much, but at least you know they are all super cute! ;-)

  3. My goodness you have been busy indeed. I love all of your products and the variety of colors and choices you have in your shop. The pink earrings are my sweet favorite.

  4. Thanks so much for all your lovely comments, so glad that you like my new items.


Please leave me a comment (it makes me smile!)

Thank you!
