Etsy Love: Stitch Happens

I'm not really sure what's more impressive: the finely crafted, handmade, crocheted goods by Stitch Happens or the fact that this creative mama has 5 kids, 5 dogs, 2 cats, and a horse!! All of the items in the Stitch Happens Etsy shop are made from all-natural and/or vintage materials. Offerings include tiny crocheted critters, river rocks covered with intricate crochet stitching, and other one-of-a-kind decorative or wearable treasures.

These make a unique and beautiful decorative accent alone or with a grouping of other beloved vintage treasures on a shelf or mantel: Custom Made OOAK Crochet Covered Patchwork River Rock/Beach Stone. I'm thinking now that it's ceiling fan weather here at the beach, I may pick one of these up as a paper weight!!

An example of the made-to-order Limited Edition Crochet Covered Cairn Stones (set of 4), inspired by the ancient store formations found in Ireland.

The crocheted river rocks are also sold in lots of 25 as wedding party favors or for more decorating possibilities.

Dozens of tiny critters like this Wee Tiny Hoot Owl are available (and can be made in any color combination you desire).

This light bulb with vintage cork topper is encased in freeform crochet and filled with findings from leisurely walks in nature, but custom orders are welcomed, so you could send the seller tiny treasures from a honeymoon or other special occasion for a unique, custom time capsule.

Last but definitely not least, I'm mildly obsessed with this Crocheted Sea Urchin Spine Necklace.
