Poor communication. After several weeks of patiently waiting, shop owner issued refund with no explanation. Never received product.

We never received the item, so I cannot comment on the actual product. However, I was most disappointed that after contacting the shop owner twice I received no response on why my purchase had a tracking number but was never shipped. I ended up opening a claim with Etsy and got a full refund, so in the end am out no money - but was very disappointed in the lack of communication from the seller.

This was absolutely the best banner ever. It is up outside my large bay window and is great! Very visible from the street as people go by. Adds to my strawberry motif outside my home!

Accidental Crafter

I'm a late 30's aged gal, from SC. I live with my husband, two daughters and one old four-legged gal. I love to knit, sew, quilt, decorate (and redecorate) my home.

As far as crafting goes, I'm a late bloomer. I didn't get bitten by the crafting bug until I was 25. My first crafting adventures involved painting flower pots. After a friend taught me how to knit back in 2002, I pushed on and never looked back!

Several years ago, I fell in love with thrifting and upcycling. This is how my shop was born. I was buying so many things, and doing makeovers on them, that I didn't have the space to keep them. It was then that I decided to open an Etsy shop for my Shabby Chic and Flea Market style home decor items.

Of course, you can't thrift and not buy vintage so about a year after my shop was open, I added vintage home decor and accessory items to the shop. I love to curate, and I'll collect things for months, sometimes years to create a perfect grouping, which I then use in my home or sell here on Etsy.

About a year ago, I began making and selling burlap buntings in my shop. Since then, they've become my most popular items. Because of this, I've decided to re-brand and change the focus of my shop to include more items that are handmade by me. My original shop name was The Speckled Dog, which was named after my blog. I have recently changed my shop name to Sweet Caroline Home.

My work has been featured on apartment therapy.com and one of their sister sites, ohdeedoh.com.

Welcome to The Speckled Dog @ Etsy. I specialize in handmade buntings as well as vintage and shabby chic items for the home.

Custom orders are welcomed and encouraged. If there is an item you're looking for, and I don't have it stocked, let me know and I'll find one for you. Custom orders and items that are made to order will need at least a 3 business day lead time before shipping.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Your satisfaction is very important to me. If you are not fully satisfied, let me know and I'll do what I can to make it right. I may allow a return for store credit or an exchange for another similarly priced item. Custom orders cannot be refunded.
I accept Paypal and credit cards.

Custom orders must be paid for in advance.
UPDATED January 29th, 2014


The current turnaround time for buntings is 1 week. Orders received after 12:00 AM EST are counted as being received the next day. Please be aware of the turnaround time if you are ordering a Valentine's Day bunting. If you need a rush on a bunting, please add the RUSH ORDER to your cart (you can find this under the Extra Services section of my shop).

I will not be able to fill a bunting order any sooner than stated without the RUSH ORDER purchase as there are other customers ahead of you, who are waiting on their orders to be filled.

If you purchased a bunting by today, Jan 29th, 2014, I am working to get it out ASAP. None of these will be out later than Feb 3rd.

Thank you!


Please make sure that the shipping address you have on file with Etsy is correct. This is the address I ship to, even if you've paid with Paypal.

Since Etsy doesn't have a built-in shipping calculator at this time, shipping prices are set to cover East coast to West coast estimates. If you are in the Midwest or on the East coast, you have two options. You can message me with your zip code PRIOR to purchasing to get a more accurate shipping cost, or you can wait for a refund of shipping difference after I've shipped the item. In the event that I've charged you more than $1 for shipping than what it actually cost, I will refund the difference to you

- I do combine shipping. If you'll be purchasing more than one item, please convo me before purchasing so I can get you a combined shipping quote.

- All breakables are shipped USPS Priority which includes insurance.

- I pack my items with care and so I can't be held responsible for for products damaged during shipping.

- I ship orders on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please keep in mind that custom orders and made to order items require at least a 3 business day lead time. If you need a rush order, please add the RUSH ORDER option to your cart.


- I will ship internationally. You'll just need to convo me for a price quote. The shipping cost quoted in the listing is NOT accurate. If you purchase an item prior to receiving an accurate quote, there may be additional shipping charges you'll need to pay once I get an accurate estimate.

- I require insurance for all international shipments.
- I am not able to ship breakables internationally at this time.
