Delightful Etsy Find

photo used with permission from Mixed Up Dolly

Each morning one of the things I do is look at the Etsy front page. Well this morning what should appear in the newly listed? Why it appeared to be a teeny tiny flower pot ring. Just had to check that out. Sure enough, the old eyes were seeing clearly. What an amazing and joyful novelty. It brightened my day. Plus, found Dolly's shop is filled with wondrous, magical miniatures. Most to wear.
Lovely fun and spunky.

Immediately jumped to convos and contacted Mixed Up Dolly. Yay! she was pleased for me to use a copy of the ring photo here.

Also found out her name is not really Dolly. Though her given name is not in her shop, so won't share that with you. But garnered some other information to share.

"Dolly" resides with her family - husband, a published Celtic artist, their 4 year old son and a daughter due in March. Their home is surrounded by hills, fields and sheep. Their town: Wells, Somerset - is England's smallest city with a huge cathedral.

For over 15 years "Dolly" has been creating jewelry. Not surprising when you see her wares, Dolly
owns up to having a passion for polymer clay; as well as miniature food, plant and bug charm jewelry (which she spells jewellery being from the UK - one on the neat things about Etsy is the globalness - which shows up in different ways - some spellings being one.)

If you too delight in fun unexpected small treasures, you too may find yourself lost in the listings of Mixed Up Dolly.

So cute, and such good manners to ask before displaying the shot too.

Thanks for the links to the other coffee corsets. I thought the sock monkey coffee corset was the last word in things you would never think to put together.
