This week's feature is about a member of the Etsy Blog Team. This is one busy Etsian, with three shops and an active blog. Besides CoveyleeCreations, there's also CoveyleeDecor and CoveyleeLighting. But, in one way or another, they're all about repurposing and upcycling.
CoveyleeCreations has upcycled leather cuff bracelets, assemblage art, and some other goodies.
I had a hard time deciding on a cuff bracelet to feature, but finally decided on this one, because it's handpainted which I think is great, and is sized personally for the buyer so can fit any size. I'd love to have the pattern as wallpaper in my kitchen:
This cuff is a little more representative of those in the shop - although that's hard to say because each one is unique. It can also be made in any size:
Here's an assemblage shadow box titled "Best Friends". I love the watch on the wall:
CoveyleeDecor is full of repurposed and upcycled decor for those who like Shabby Chic and Cottage Chic.
Since we're still hoping for spring, here's a "Spring Fling" collection of frames in great colors:
And a collection of candlesticks for which you can choose your own colors:
I had to add this cake stand/dessert display because it's so creative. Can you guess what two items it's made from? There's also a bonus the buyer will receive:
Our last shop this week is CoveyleeLighting. Not surprisingly, a lot of what's available here is also made from upcycled/repurposed found objects. Here's an "industrial look" cage light as an example:
This scalloped light is all new except for the shade, so you can have vintage without worrying about aging electrical wiring:
There's also a reading lamp made from a repurposed book. Pretty amazing lamp, but since the book was written by a literary critic who doesn't like Tolkien, you won't see a picture of it in this blog (which just happens to be named in honor of Tolkien)... We do have our priorities, y'know.
Last but definitely not least, here's a link to the Coveylee Creations blog. There are projects here that you won't see in any of the shops - at least, not yet.
Whew! This post was a lot of work - but a lot of fun, too, looking at some fantastic items.
