About Almond Blossoms -- quoted from http://www.vangoghmuseum.nl/en/collection/s0176V1962

Van Gogh painted this sparkling still life of delicate almond blossom against a clear blue sky for his new-born nephew Vincent Willem. His brother Theo wrote, in the letter announcing the new arrival: ‘As we told you, we’ll name him after you, and I’m making the wish that he may be as determined and as courageous as you.’

As a symbol of this new life, Van Gogh chose the branches of an almond tree – a variety that blossoms as early as February in the south of France, where it announces the coming spring. The subject, the bold outlines and the positioning of the tree in the picture plane are borrowed from Japanese printmaking. The white blossoms were originally more pink but have faded on exposure to light, losing some of their chromatic intensity.

Van Gogh meant the painting to hang over Theo and his wife Jo’s bed. The couple preferred, however, to display it over the piano in their living room. Unsurprisingly, it was the work that remained closest to the hearts of the Van Gogh family. Vincent Willem went on to found the Van Gogh Museum.

Additional policies

Custom orders are welcome! In fact, they're pretty much the norm here! Please let me know what you're after and we'll get you squared away.

All items are made by me, in my non-smoking home. Although we are a smoke-free home, we are not a glitter-free home. Items in my shop may include trace amounts of glitter. Glittered items in my shop are guaranteed to include enough glitter to satisfy even the sparkliest of divas. There is never an extra charge for glitter. ;-)

Because I'm trying to keep things consistent and affordable, I try to keep my prices pretty standard. Generally I set prices based on the size of the embroidery, including the stitchcount, fabric used and etc. All items are made by me (other than apparel, towels, etc. that you send to me to embroider!). I do not buy blanks and embroider on them, I construct your items to order at the time you order them.

Smaller unframed wall art with unfinished edges usually runs $10-30, while larger is generally $25-50.

Hooped art starts at $27.50 for 5" designs. Larger rectangular designs with constructed framework are $45-60 based on size and number of layers.

Pillows -- I generally suggest to my clients that they purchase pillow forms off Amazon, and I will make them pillow cases to fit those pillow forms. This way you are only paying me for the cost to ship you the pillow cases! I will instruct you which pillow forms to purchase, in order to insure that you get a nice fit. I have samples in each of the standard sizes so that photos can be sent showing you exactly what your pillow case(s) will look like when you shove your pillow forms into them! :)

Bags, Pouches, Cases, Totes & Purses range in price based on size, fabric, features, etc. They range from a low of $5 to a high of $75. Most are in the $20-$50 range. As previously mentioned I construct all of these items to order, I do not purchase blank totes and embroider on them.

Two bags of identical size may be priced differently based on stitchcounts! If bag A has a 12,000 stitch design and bag B has a 56,000 stitch design, bag B IS going to be more expensive! Likewise, a bag made of cotton fabric is going to be cheaper than a similarly sized bag made of linen or microfiber, etc.

Embroidered apparel, towels, blankies, etc. are priced based on stitchcount, and the cost of the item being embroidered upon. (If you have the item shipped to me, the charge is based only on the embroidery. In most cases this will be $17.50 to $25 per item depending on stitch counts, etc.)

Please contact me if you have ANY questions on pricing.
