Hello, I’m so happy you’re here! Today I’m here to show you some pictures of the latest additions to my Etsy shop. Lets GO – Aren’t these fab? Three matching Vintage coffee/tea pots in solid brass. These would make such a cool display. I left the original patina on them (some folks prefer that) but… Continue reading “Spring” Over to Old Raven On Etsy
Yaaaaaay…Spring is starting to jump! Welcome to my blog. Today I’ve got a “how to” to share with you. Though my Etsy shop (Old Raven) started out many years ago as strictly handmade, it didn’t take long for me to realize I would never be able to make enough items fast enough to keep a… Continue reading The Spirit of the Cottonwood
Hello and welcome. Today is another quickie post but I just had to show you the latest find for my “Needlework Supplies” section in my Etsy shop Old Raven.
