Coastal Christmas


Just listed a new seashell wreath perfect for both a coastal theme and Christmas. Christmas is quickly coming closer and as we will be away in December (last shipping date December 3) it is really time to think of Christmas gifts if you want it from our shops :)


Our sea urchin trees are back in the shop as well :)


And lots of ornaments!
All from StarHomeStudio.

Our Creative Space...


Now that Christmas shopping season is approaching (not so much yet as the elections are of course a scarier issue) we are making ornaments. We like to make a few new types every season, they are always in small editions which makes it fun to make and more special for those who buy them :)



This year we actually made them even more special by making our own handmade tassels! They are so much richer and fuller than the ready bought ones, making them look just way prettier :)


This is done with a fringe maker. After Mum winds the yarn, thread etc around it, I sew it several times with the sewing machine making a fringe. Then I round it up to make it a tassel with some hand sewing and a bead cap or beads for a pretty finishing touch.



We are now working on some iridescent and shiny tassels for some extra festive ornaments :)
These and more are available at Star Home Studio.

New Project Part 3

After quite some stress, the windows are finished!



It looks very pretty but mum, as a civil engineer, was a bit worried about the work and quality, I had to hold her back often to let it all be untill they where finished. It is not done as it should but in Turkey we often have to learn to live with things for 'less'.


Now comes the more challenging part, we have to get rid of the old stuff, making new tables and drawers, and then move the tons of supplies to our new space. Luckely the distance is not as far as the last move, but it will be quite a task, to be continued....
Here you can read Part 1 and Part 2.



Today the postmen brought a box with a little treasure we purchased at a lovely new shop on Etsy, ComeDayGoDay.


This trinket box is hand constructed with copper wire, vintage Mother of Pearl and linen buttons, bone beads, lead fishing weights and is lined with wood veneer and pale grey cotton organdie. A beauty!

Little Sister

I was starting to run out of subjects for Friday Findings and had been thinking about something new that I could investigate and share every week, and I think I found it :)
People (including me) are often curious about little things. Especially now that we are all alot in cyber world we often do not know a lot of things of people we talk to, daily. Not a suprise that the TV program 'Big Brother', where you could watch people day and night, was such a huge success.
I'm not going to be Big Brother, but I do want to find out and share tiny little pieces of peoples lifes, all of them will be connected to the Etsy community, world wide.
To start with something welcoming and warm, I sneaked in to 4 different bedrooms from different places of the world....


Devi of Glasfaden makes gorgeous unique jewelry of felt and lampwork beads, not the average things you see daily. She also has a passion for photography and shares her pictures often in her photography blog, besides her other blog. She sings in a chore and has a 'normal' job too, busy girl.
She lives in Germany with her son and has moved in to a new house a few months back and has been renovating and decorating ever since. Her bedroom is not finnished yet, it might take a while as she likes to do it right and slowly. Devi descripes her room as 'You can see that it looks more like a studio than a bedroom or maybe like a student's room? Well, I always think, if a bedroom is there to sleep only.. what a waste!! So it is actually my sewing and drawing room, as well as my wool inventory room with a corner to sleep. Later on it will be my beading room too - at the moment I'm doing it in the dining room. :)'


¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨



So who is the owner of this -jealous making beautiful- bedroom? Charmaine aka High Desert Diva has two big passions, the first is her Interior Designing bussines and secondly Vintage, no worries she does love her husband (who is a very talented metal smith), cat and dog too :)!
Charmaine moved with her husband to High Desert of Central Oregon, USA, and made of a trailer a dream house, with their own bare hands and very hard work, you can read their story and more pictures at her blog.
Their trailer became so beautiful that it has been professionally photographed by Philip Clayton-Thompson of Blackstone Edge Studios, as part of her portfolio.


¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨



Inger aka IngerMaaike makes gorgeous felt creations and felt toys.
She, her husband, 3 sons and 2 dogs recently moved from the Netherlands to Norway, and has been one of the luckiest persons ever since.
Houses in Norway are mostly made of wood as there is so much of it. You can see that outside the window that they have lots and lots of snow. I noticed a gun in the corner and of course had to ask about that, imagining wild bears attacking them, but it is a very old airgun, they practice with at summer time (on painted targets, not animals).
Their tiny bedroom is just enough she says, nice and cozy and enough room for their bed and a tv, the art photographs on the wall are of MatchStickGirl, they are each others huge fans.


¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨¨°o©©o°¨


Speaking of MatchStickgirl, owned by Frances. J. Melhop, I sneaked in her bedroom too.
Frances, originally from New Zealand, lives in the fashion town Milan, Italy. She is a very talented professional fashion photographer and has recently been chosen as one of the worlds 200 best add photographers by LUERZERS ARCHIVE 2008/2009.
She also has another shop for her open editioned works at EnchantedPond.
As she is used to the wild open nature life in New Zealand, she often finds Milan too small and crowded, but her little apartment is her way to escape from that world and live in her own, when she is in Milan. She says she likes it because:
'It's nice and warm and packed with my things...all the things I love ...
I need more rooms like this :D but for the moment as a transient photographer on the move it is a nice little nest to come back to.'
You can find some fairytales and gorgeous photographs at her blog too.


Next peeks, next week!
Thank you Devi, Charmaine, Inger and Frances for sharing your photographs and little bits of your lifes!

Friday Findings: Cushions & Pillows

Every time when I'm looking for the Friday Findings, there are often hundreds of pages on the subject. This is really a great excuse to scroll through Etsy and find great things. But when I'm looking for the blog (and also treasuries) it is not only the item I'm looking at, actually more important then that are the pictures of the items. I have seen some gorgeous things but didn't include them as the maker didn't take enough time to show her/ his product perfectly. So this reminds me once and again that not only your items have to be great, but also your pictures, to attract people to feature your items and purchase them.
