About

During the Great Depression, there was a phenomenon
in which lipstick purchases soared... this was surprising
due to the severe lack of money. However; it makes
perfect sense for a person to be able to purchase a
nominally priced item that makes his/her spirits soar.
I see this same reality in the sale of my pillows in my shop,
Fanny Elizabeth Design on Etsy... I call this the
"Pillow Factor" because, for a small amount of money, a
person can order a pillow from one of many vendors on
Etsy or through other avenues and bring a splash of color,
a statement, or just a little comfort into their lives...
How great is that?

I am very grateful for the opportunity that Etsy has provided
for me to do just that... I am an artist/designer who loves to
create beautiful things from simple, everyday items…

Originally, I made a couple of pillows to sell at a craft
show where I was doing charcoal portraits. I became
intrigued with pillows... I googled them, searched the
internet, including Etsy and checked them out
everywhere I could. I was especially enamored with
the very high end ones, that were a bit out of my price
range. That's when I decided to create a line of interesting,
artistic and sometimes whimsical pillows that everyone
could afford...

Etsy has been a lifesaver for many families, not only for
providing a venue that reaches across all boundaries,
physically and culturally, but also because it allows individuals
with limited resources to earn an income through the marketing
of handmade and vintage products.
Thank you Etsy founders and staff:)

BTW, I do still love to draw, paint and create works of art, as well
as, create floral arrangements and wreaths from my time spent
as a floral designer. And last, but not least, I can't resist a search
for "junk treasures" anytime I get a chance, so there's a little bit of
everything in my shop... thanks for dropping in...
