A Berry Merry Christmas.....by lvsbeadsnthings



This patchwork bear ornament/decoration is lightly stuffed with polyfill, has button eyes and a button nose and a red and white felt Christmas hat.


It looks cute hung on a door, hook, or you can even hang it on a tree! A Berry Merry Christmas to all!





I like to donate to animal causes that help "make a difference." Defender's of Wild Life is one of my favorite animal charities. The wolves of the Northern Rockies need our help, and this is one of the areas that Defender's of Wild Life has continally worked to ensure the wolves right to peacefully coexist with us humans. They also are working with federal agencies to help the future of the polar bears and this is another area I am deeply concerned with. I also donate a portion of the sales from my Twisted Whiskers items to EFA, AWBAR and our local PRAR (Priest RiverAnimal Rescue.)

Looking for Love Look No More Original Watercolour Collage with Mandarin Ducks No2 by dragonhouseofyuen


This is an original piece of watercolour / mixed media / collage art.

This is a highly symbolic piece of art which will enhance your chances of love luck and relationship success. The mandarin ducks represent partners for life and fidelity. In Chinese tradition they are highly respected for symbols of a happy marriage. The Chinese character behind is called ‘double hey’ and is the character for double blessings and happiness

The collage painting promotes happiness and respect and hopefully this leads to peace!

I currently pledge 10% donation to specific charities from the sale of my Arabella Art-Accessory bags.

Patchwork Corduroy and Angels Tote by HazelHoney


I love doing Patchwork and a small bit of corduroy and a beautiful angel print fabric gave me all the reason to make this great bag. Inside is fully lined in solid beige cotton fabric. A layer of quilter's batting (padding) between the outer fabric and linning adds shape. Each square piece is individually hand pieced then machine stitched together. Measures: 15" wide x 10" tall x 3" side depth & 11" drop (22" end to end) shoulder straps.


Angels bring a message of peace. This item makes a great gift for a friend, family member or a nice little gift for yourself to get into the holiday spirit.

Animal and Nature Photo Cards Set of 4 with Envelopes by LittleStudioJewels


It fits the theme of peaceful animals/nature, loving nature and animals, being grateful that they are in my life, and wanting to share that with the rest of the world (plus 10% of the sale goes to a worthy charity-of-the-month!). http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=150364782.

I have always felt more at ease with animals than people, and they have always seemed more at ease with me than other people also! For this reason, although I can't afford to keep millions of shelter animals (though I'd love to, trust me!), each month I donate 10% of my total sales before taxes and shipping to a different worthy charity, such as the World Wildlife Fund of Canada, Rescue 100 (for horses), Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary (for the wild paws), The Country Cat Sanctuary, etc., as much as possible.

I am also now learning to crochet tiny animals, called amigurumi, to make into cat toys that I can donate to a local cat sanctuary for their cats, and as a potential fundraiser for them to sell to visitors and new (cat) adoptive parents.

Christmas doggie bottlecap Christmas Tree by tealcatfan

The tree is embellished with Bottle Caps of Dog faces, holiday stars, a few Dog buttons and a couple pieces of Vintage Jewelry. As the tree topper I found a old ornament with this hound dog on the present sleeping and I just gave him wings and attached to the topper. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17209541

100% of the sale of this item will go to Animal Charity. My current Charity of Choice is A Chance for Bliss.

Crocheted Pet BED with Pillow by pollyspawprint


I made this adorable crocheted pet bed from a vintage pattern book. It can be used by a kitty or small dog or puppy. I made this one with a cute kitty 100% cotton print. Mischievous kitties are holding fishbowls with the caption "No Fishing Allowed". It's background is lime green with blue and yellow stripes topped with brown kitties and blue fishbowls. I backed it with a soft lime green fleece (which can be put face up during the colder months for warmth). I've filled the pillow just right with soft 100% polyester fill.


Your kitty will love curling up on it for his afternoon nap! For the crocheted bed, I used triple yarns for the sides to make it sturdy; one lime green, one forest green and a multi-color consisting of yellow, blue and lime green. I crocheted the bottom using double yarns; lime green and forest green. I finished it off by winding a bright satin ribbon, with smiling dog and cat faces, through the outside of the bed and made cheerful bows on either side of the opening.


This bed measures 12 inches in width X 18 inches in length X 4 inches high. I can make a custom order bed in any of the prints seen in my other listings if you prefer. Larger sizes can also be made for an additional charge.

Delilah The Owl Cat by latejuly

Another addition to the Meowzers collection. An original print 5"X7" print and photograph (just message me for another size or color). This is Delilah a cat in the shelter. She is gorgeous and has the biggest eyes, similar to an owl.

---About LateJuly Photos At The Shelter

Most of the animals are photographed at an animal control facility in Ontario, Canada. I see a wide array of animals, some unique mixes, and all ages. I take these photos to help them find homes or safe havens in rescues. They give me the best expressions and love the attention. I use the money from selling print to help pay for the animals vetting which makes them more likely to find a home or rescue.

SPOOKY by Endlesswhimsy


This little kitty is sitting on a spooky music page in my Erno Rapee Silent Movie Music piano book. The reflection on him is red because of the brick wall that the sun was beating on outside of the window.A classic stretch pose made iconic by the Halloween black cat.Spooky stands 2.5 in (6.4cm) tall and is made out of black polymer. Many prototypes later, Spooky became the third pose in the 'stretch' series.Spooky would make a wonderful desktop or shelf cat all year round, but would also look extremely keen next to some pumpkins!

Halloween catnip mouse by VivaLeChat


"Trick or treat," chirps your kitty. How about a Halloween treat especially made for him or her? Made of super bright orange, white, and black acrylic yarn. Very sturdy design with tight-knit gauge to prevent the catnip from spilling out. This mouse will last for a very long time! Each mouse is approximately 3.5-4.5 inches long not including tail. I fill with only catnip (no cotton filler or other sort of stuffing) and use Cosmic Catnip (a brand of super-potent catnip available at lots of pet stores).


I lost my kitty to heart failure on June 23, 2008, but want to help other people facing similar financial difficulties. A third of the proceeds from my mice will be going to IMOM.org, an organization that raises funds for low-income families with prohibitively high vet expenses.
