From the Archives: DIY - Snaz Up Your Coat!

It's officially getting COLD here in New England. I thought I'd share a DIY from last year.  Adding something like little heart elbow patches to a coat can change up it's look in a big way. To see my DIY tutorial on how to do this, click HERE!

This coat makeover series was done in two parts. To see how I revamped a plain black winter coat with some fancy buttons click HERE. This DIY is what we call: "DUH, stupid easy!" but it also has a great impact and helps makeover a coat.

LPH Holiday Collection

Get your mouse ready.... the Lavender Paper Hearts Holiday Collection is up and added to my Etsy shop!! 
I've got some returning items this year, as well as some new pieces for ladies, little ladies, and pets too.  If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably watched as I added pieces bit by bit.  Make sure you scroll all the way to the end to get a coupon!  

For the Pets:  I've brought back the Green Candy Cane and Red Snowman Pet Bow Ties this year. The snow men are technically different, but I might be the only one to notice. I totally think they're cuter this time around.  By special request, I also added a Holiday Striped Bow Tie to the collection. I think they're a fun, fancier choice for the season. 

New: Also new to the pet selection this year are my Poinsettia Collar Flowers. Last year some people wanted something a little different for their lady dogs, so I came up with this fun throw back flower to add a little holiday spirit to any pet. Just like the Pet Bow Ties, these can be added or removed from your pet's collar by an elastic band on the back of the flower.

For the Ladies and Little Ladies: I've brought back some of my poinsettia hair pieces from last year, as well as added some clip sets to this year's mix.  

I love these bows! I have them to wear in pretty much any color felt possible. I've made them holiday themed here so you can look snazzy for any up coming holiday parties, or if you just want to get a little fancy while shopping.  

New: These Holly and Poinsettia Hair Clip Sets are new to the shop this year. They're available in snap clips (for little ladies) or bobby pins.

Holly & Poinsettia Hair Clip Sets

Available for custom order: Some pieces I make available by special order only.  Please contact me via Etsy to order these. I'd be more than happy to make some for you. 

This Felt Poinsettia Headband is available to order by custom order request

Mini-Poinsettia Hair Clips. These can be made with snap clips or bobby pins. Available via custom order request. 

This Velveted Poinsettia with Gold French Veiling Leaves was a custom order for a holiday party. I would be more than happy to make you one, too. Just send me a custom order request from my Etsy shop.

Phew - you've made it to the end. Give yourself a pat on the back!! As a reward for making it to the end, I'm offering a coupon to use in my Etsy shop from now until 11/30. The coupon excludes custom orders - but everything else is fair game!!
