{ SPECIAL GIFT }

by teresaharris

Want to get that special someone a unique gift? Maybe a gift that incorporates a family heirloom? Call us we might be able to help. Here’s Kelly’s experience:

Kelly Lane wrote:  I’d like to order a personalized cuff for my brother.  I want something really special as we will be celebrating in person for the first time since we were kids.  He’s in CA and I’m in MI.  Thanks!

Over the next month Kelly and I emailed back and forth. Kelly had lots of great ideas. Eventually she was able to obtain an old knife sheath of an uncle. She sent it to me.  I set off for my studio to come up with some ideas to present to Kelly. I sent her photos of ideas and we agreed on how to incorporate the piece of family nostalgia into her brother’s cuff.  ~ I used the small strap that held the knife into the sheath. As you will see in the photos below the little strap had a very cool snap. I cut it and hand stitched it on either side of the center piece made from vintage silverware.

Kelly received the finished product:  Hi Teresa:   I got the cuff!  Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!  It really looks awesome!  You really did an excellent job with the stitching and engraving. Thanks so much for the extra stuff you did to the sheath as well, that was very nice of you!   It has been great working with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Teresa: Thanks Kelly!!!! I loved working on this project! I got to use a new tool. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of learning something new! It was my pleasure working with you!!!  I really loved how the hand stitching turned out!

After Kelly brother received the cuff, Kelly wrote:  Teresa:  I just wanted to let you know that my brother LOVED his new leather cuff!  He said it was one of THE best gifts he’s ever received.  He wore it the whole time we were together in FL.  I just wanted to say thank you for helping make this year’s gift a very special one for my brother. I didn’t know how he’d like it but he really, really loves it.  He liked the idea of the coordinates and said it was a good conversation piece.  And of course he loved the fact it had some of his favorite uncles leather on it.  Not sure if I’ll ever be able to top that one!

{ Piccadilly ~ Brookfield Missouri 2014 ~ Girls just want to have fun!!! ~ A Girl Thing }

by teresaharris

Girls just want to have fun! That is part of the reason for Piccadilly success! Last year 2013 the small community of Brookfield Missouri brought is $16,000 in revenue with it’s first Piccadilly event. Nancy Saccaro ask if I’d be interested in donating something to the Piccadilly event this year 2014. The proceeds go to the uptown twin parks renovation. That’s awesome! I’ve not been to a Piccadilly event …and the tickets were sold out before I even knew about it. But I’m told that it’s super fun.  I’m wishing success and fun for all!!! Having 5 grandchildren who live here in our community and knowing that children for years to come will benefit, definitively makes me feel good to have a small part.

Thanks to all! Nancy Saccaro,  Becky Cleveland,  Marcia Cunningham, Kathy McCurry and everyone else that has worked hard to bring this event to the community!!!

I’m excited to hear how this years event turns out. Here are photos of the things we will have at  the 2014 Piccadilly.  For those of you who have a ticket… you will have a business card in your git bag for $5.00 off any online purchase from ‘A Girl Thing’ ~ Teresa Harris. If you don’t see what you are interested in please feel free to contact me…. I have a lot of product that is not listed. Most things can be make custom just for you. I will continue adding more listings…

{ Thanks to new and returning customers!!! }

by teresaharris

Chautauqua and Red Barn festivals were FUN! The weather was beautiful! We loved seeing our returning customers and meeting new ones!We made our leather and plated silverware bracelets on site this year. Here are photos of just a few. The bracelet…”Always on y mind…Forever in my heart” was my favorite to make. The young woman who placed this order lost her brother. Losing a son and brother ourselves you can imagine how our hearts went out to her. I really loved the sentiments that she came up with!!!

{ Katniss Inspired Cowl Vest shawl Scarf And Our Artsy Chunky Warm cowls }

by teresaharris

Inspired by the beautiful one armed cowl vest worn by Katniss Everdeen. I was ask if I could make one. It has been a fun challenge. This is my own pattern…always in the process of being tweaked.

This asymmetrical cowl is a replica inspired by the Katniss Cowl. Each piece is made using multiple techniques and hours of detailed handwork truly a unique piece of art. The hand woven tubed collar is soft and flexible ~ made from yarn only ~ not ropes or other stiff filling . I have tried to stay true to the original design, and yet shape it so it will be comfortable and flattering! See each individual listing for details.
~ WEAR ART ~ With our ‘ Indigo Skyy’ Label ~

~ Each comfy cowl is unique due to hand construction & yarn variations. Custom orders are welcome!

~ Check out the Chunky Cowls also.

{ VINTAGE LOVES }

by teresaharris

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a nice vacation! We have a new section on our website now  “VINTAGE”  We will occasionally list a few special items that we fine in our search for things that we revamp or recycle. Like the nice  leather boots just listed. A pair of boots can really make the outfit! Right?  Jewelry that we have incorporated vintage items into or garments that use vintage materials will be listed under vintage also.  Often vintage jewelry is missing a stone or broken, these pieces are challenging  and fun to use to create  ‘unique pieces’  from old and new elements. Sometimes I can’t pass up a piece that is in good vintage condition ….and I can’t bring myself to alter it. So we will be listing some of these vintage jewelry finds for you vintage lovers. We’d  love to know what you think about this.  As always we appreciate your comments!
