This vase is very colorful and is going to look great as part of a copper cala lilie flower arrangement I am putting together for my wife for our 7th wedding anniversary! Great service by Susan and fast shipping!

Love the design and the length-beautifully made! I should say however that the gloves are really narrow and I've had to do quite a bit of stretching them out to get them to be comfortable on my hands. I doubt they will ever fit up my forearm due to the narrowness. As I'm an average sized lady (5'3 and 127 pds), I wasn't expecting this issue, so def. check in about the width of the arms. Regardless, the design is so pretty that I don't mind breaking them in. They arrived on the promised date, came with a super cute card and nicely wrapped. :) I would order from this shop again for sure, esp since she sent me a note letting me know how to stretch them out in a way that won't damage the gloves.

About

My Etsy Shop - The Product of My Inspiration

This Etsy store is the online showcase for artisan work created by Susan Phillips Hicks (aka Mela). Felt fashion and home decor accessories are featured together with weaving, oil paintings, jewelry and greeting cards. The shop is the exclusive sales portal for Susan's fiber work and jewelry other than seasonal showings in Alexandria, Virginia, USA. Want prints or tshirts? Surf by http://melasdesign.com (or see links below) for varied art merch with themes such as dogs and cats, flowers, landscapes, and abstract, plus order your own pet portraits.

I am happiest when I am creating. Since color is my trademark, I search out the best, most vibrant wool and paint that I can. I also let my sense of touch play a major role. Think of all the work those sheep have put into making their wool, and the effort of the folks have formulated oil paints, plus the precision of the printers running my pieces to press! Then comes the joy of creating. I have my own creative universe in my mind and in my hands. It's fun to experiment and bring new art to life - something I do in varied media.

Every aspect of my Etsy shop, and the goods in it, is a product of my own, solo effort, save for the times when four hands are better than two and my husband steps in. Thankfully, my husband serves as great inspiration and my dog-child, Elsa, offers solid moral support. There's a lot of love going on, and that should shine through in my art.

    Retrieved from the shelter, we know the third time's a charm. Elsa sleeps by my feet and keeps me grounded while I work. She's quite the fan of wool and loves making piles of roving even fluffier, if she can get to them.
