Monday’s Finding: The Linnet’s Wing

The other day I was creating a treasury on Etsy when I came across the shop, The Linnet’s Wing. I immediately fell in love with Erika’s wreaths and other lovelies she has in her shop. You can utilize these for home decor, as beautiful garden party decor, as wedding centerpieces. and even table numbers. Here is a bit about The Linnet’s Wing along with pics of some of Erika’s items.

FYI: I have sought permission from this vendor to use her products and her photos. Please do not use these photos for personal gain or copy the designs presented. These products are the livelihood, passion, and intellectual property of the artist and to copy these items or to use them for person gain is both highly unethical and in some cases is a violation of copyright law.

“My name is Erika and I am a work-at-home mom and artist in rural Pennsylvania. I was the director of a contemporary art gallery for many years, and am now a professional floral designer. My art background has led me into several different styles of expression, but flowers, weeds, fruits and branches have always captivated me.

I live in a tiny stone cottage that is planted in one of the most beautiful places in the world. When I step out of my door, I am surrounded by woods, lakes, fields, and orchards that inspire and facilitate my creations.

I use found or homegrown materials wherever possible and have perfected methods for preserving my materials naturally and effectively, and only select pieces that last when dried.” – from The Linnet’s Wing profile

“I make nature-inspired seasonal items for your hearth and home from the wilds of Pennsylvania. Here, you will find entirely handmade wreaths, adornments, arrangements, and vintage finds for your farmhouse and garden. I collect or grow many of my dried materials in the acres surrounding my home, and all silk or faux materials are carefully selected for authenticity.” – from The Linnet’s Wing shop page
