What's in for Easter

I have always loved Wendy Addison's beautiful creations since the first time I saw them at a trade show in San Francisco. One of my favorite Christmas experiences was to order the new Wendy Addison collection for my shop in Sellwood.  Last year I decided to buy only handmade Christmas items, so her collections were off limits to me.
It was a wonderful surprise when I ran across her in San Francisco on the recent girls road trip last month. I was pleased to find out that she now has a new line that is made in her studio in the bay area and in New York City. Everything is handmade by her or under her personal supervision.
So now I once again carry Wendy Addison's beautiful collection and I am proud to announce that they are made in the US.
The Withies created these wonderful nests for my shop. This one has been delicately placed in a vintage bowl with a great vintage iron base. This nest specimen is my favorite because of the variety of fern, twigs and feathers she used.
Wendy Addison has made these great gift boxes and embellished them with either glitter eggs or doves and a greeting.
The Withies hand stamped the white feathers with greatings and uplifting words. Her studio is full of wonderful treasures and I have so much fun handpicking things for my shop.
This beautiful nest with a glitter egg may have to find a home in my house. Isabella will just love it to death, literally, so I may have to think twice about it. I have a few in the shop and each one is unique.
 The Withies just loves eggs and she gave me her wonderful collection of wood, glass and handpainted eggs to share.
I bought just a couple of the flying sparrows by Wendy Addison, they come in pink and silver glitter.
Everything I brought in for Easter has been handpicked and is limited.

What a beautiful day!

Oh Thea, how absolutely beautiful! I too adore Wendy's creations, and I am lucky enough to own her incredible book (that was gifted to me by a dear friend)! And Julie's creations are among my very favorites too.

I did not know until you visited my blog, that you have a blog! You are now among my favorites list.
