My friend just retired from her job as a USPS rural carrier. She was THRILLED with her clip! Attached it to her purse right away. She couldn't believe that I found such a perfect gift! Madeline was a joy to deal with. Item was shipped promptly and safely.

About

My shop is a reflection of my loves, my life experiences, and my spirit.

I am a retired Realtor, jewelry maker, mother of three, grandmother of five, and wife of my best friend and soul mate. We live on the east coast of South Florida with our adopted racing greyhound.

I extend a 100% satisfaction guarantee, in writing, on all my items because I care a lot more about the happiness of my customers (and friends!) than I do about a single financial transaction.

So, how did this shop evolve? How do I select my images?

When we retired, we moved to Florida's Treasure Coast where the seaside has become one of our favorite places to visit. You will see the inspiration of the sea in many of my images.

I love working in my little garden and almost all of the flowers you see in my images are flowers I have grown and then captured on film ... well, digital "film."

I have been a bird lover since my dad gave me my first "Golden Book of Birds" when I was a little girl. If you stay in my shop for more than five minutes, you will detect my love of birds ... and the camera!

Almost three years ago, we lost the greyhound who started our greyhound journey. Her loss inspired me to make a pendant with her image to keep her close to my heart. That pendant has grown into a very large part of my shop. The stories and the love I hear about on an almost daily basis inspire me to get better and better at making these pendants that become priceless to those of us who hold our animals in a very special part of our hearts, even when they are gone from our lives.

Please step into Horizon Cottage and take a look around. If you don't see what you're looking for, let me know. My custom work, using your own images, has become the biggest part of Horizon Cottage. If you can think it up, I can probably put it in a pendant ... or key chain, or backpack clip, or purse clip, or briefcase clip, or book bag clip, or bookmark, or a pin ... well, you get the idea! The only limit is your imagination!

Frequently asked questions

How do I create a digital image?

If your image is not already in digital form, you can easily create a digital image by simply photographing the image with your phone's camera. Use good light and try to avoid shadows or glares. Dust the photo before you photograph it because dust appears as bright white spots on the image.

Send me the highest resolution you have available and please don't crop your image. The best image for my purposes will not be cropped. I need room to work around the edges of the main subject in order to crop the shape of your piece.

How do I send my image to you?

Attach your image to an Etsy Convo: To attach an image to an Etsy convo using a PC: click the "attach image" button below the text window. If you are on a mobile device, you will see a little camera icon below the text window.

What is an Etsy "Convo" and how do I send you one?

In case you’re not familiar with the Etsy Messaging system (called a “Convo”), log into your Etsy account and then go to “YOU” at the top of any Etsy page. Click the arrow and select "conversations." I try to keep all communication on the Etsy site (rather than using emails) because I receive a little audio tone the instant someone sends a convo so I can respond quickly. I don’t receive a tone for email and I worry that I might miss your message in the deluge of email I receive.

Will my item be three-dimensional?

No, any three-dimensional effect is photographic. The dome is crystal clear glass set over a printed image.

MY GUARANTEE:

All of my pieces come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. This means that if you aren't pleased with your item when you receive it, or if you later become disenchanted with it, I will issue a refund immediately upon return of the item. No questions asked. You will receive this guarantee in writing with every purchase.
