My Etsy Handmade Shop

This is a sample of my Etsy Handmade Shop,"ByLightOfMoon" I share with my Mother who makes Rosemary's Bags. She uses new materials and is a fabulous crafter. She is quilting and sewing for now but in the past she has china painted, tole painted,and has been a crafter as long as I can remember. She used to even craft from oil-cloth and felt our front door at Christmas Time. How I wish I could find some of those photos!

On the other hand, I am just now learning to craft. I like to use found objects using mixed media for what I make. I reuse and recycle items like the pumpkins made from a dyed chenille bedspread, nylon stockings,silf flowers and tree limbs.

I am always purchasing new products I think I might use and have two rooms full of crafting supplies so I also offer them. The Hat Magnets are a friendship gift for you to share with someone, just a magnet but the thought is tremendous.

My husband is recovering from back surgery and I am home taking care of him so I should be entering many new items in all my shops in the coming weeks. Please contact me if youhave any questions and I love comments.

Smiles, Cyndi

My Etsy Vintage Shop

Here is a sampling on my Vintage Etsy Shop! I collect Vintage at estate sales, auctions, antique shops, etc. I just like to roam, never knowing what I will find.

I love Vintage Linens, Crafts, Home Decor, Sewing, Cross-Stitch Books, Children's Books, Magazines, Ceramics, and Clothing if Excellent quality. If not Excellent , then I use it for my mixed media art for a fabulous fabric, buttons, whatever I can salvage.

I love the thought of reusing an item for another purpose, or just thrifting. I find it silly to pay exorbant retail prices for something that I can probably find here and there as I roam.

Most of my Clothing is found as Pre-owned and I save boo-q's ( is that a word?) of money that way. Also my home is filled to the brim where I have closed my retail stores for the time being.

I hope I can shop when you can't and you can find something you love. Just message to me and we can make a deal if you just let me know.

Smiles, Cyndi
