Lovely, unusual, and charming brooch....and the same could be said about the seller/creator. :) Very quick handling & shipping of the order, too, as well as great communication. A real pleasure!

WHAT a beautiful lady! Though I haven't actually seen my brooch(It's tucked away in my stocking) I just KNOW that it's going to be every bit as lovely as the creator that I've come to know. Excellent communications,thoughtfully wrapped for the holidays and shipped in lightening fast time!! Happy Holidays to you and Thank you for a great story to tell when I wear my new brooch!

About

Do You Take A Lump of Sinister or a Lump of Sweet With Your Tea?

So many things inspire me to create art: gorgeous images, beautiful papers and fabrics, a nicely arranged tea party. But I'm also interested in the paranormal, Oddities and dark and unique images. All of these images look amazing when printed on silk and hand-sewn into a gorgeous little pillow brooch! I also love making cards with beautiful papers and rubber stamps and garlands of pretty paper dolls! I also fully admit that my first trip to Paris left a wonderfully indelible mark on me and has heavily influenced a lot of what I do. I would love nothing more than to own a tiny shop there and just make and sell beautiful handmade items there!

I make everything I sell here, by myself. This shop explores both the light and dark sides of my creativity. Every item I make is a reflection of my love of art and crafting.

The Gossamer Tea Room is a place where I sell items I make by hand. The items I make are inspired by such things as moonlight, tea parties, delicious desserts, Paris and that book you can't put down until the last page. Thank you so much for your interest in the things I make! I have fun making them!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I gladly accept PayPal, Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards for payment of items bought here. Per Etsy's rule, all purchases must be paid for at the time the transaction is made (you must order and pay at the same time).
Shipping
I ship via USPS with delivery confirmation, using recycled shipping materials as much as possible. I am generally able to ship out packages within one to two days of your having ordered (sometimes sooner!). I will contact you in the event of my not being able to ship within that time (you have ordered on a weekend, etc.). Please feel free to contact me if you need something to go out more quickly and I can quote a shipping upgrade for you.

*Please see below for Revised International Shipping Policy as of 8/6/13*
I have tried to over-estimate shipping charges to take into account the range of prices to ship to different countries. I promptly refund any over-payment of shipping charges more than $2.00 upon shipment of your order. All buyers are responsible for any customs, duties charges, VAT or other various customs charges they may incur upon delivery in their country of destination.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you wish to return something, please contact me within a week of having received your order and convo me in advance so we can make arrangements for its return. If you have any problems with your order, please contact me as possible, so that I can work with you and correct the problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a smoke-free, pet-free home.

A note about postage: all the cards I make require only standard first-class postage, with the exception of square cards, which require additional potage to mail within the U.S.

Would I consider doing a custom order? Absolutely! Just convo me so we can discuss what you will need, how long it will take and the price.
