Blogmania Sponsor: Earth Whispers

I would like to introduce you to another of my Blogmania Sponsors for the big event this September.  Earth Whispers - Natural Wreaths and Acrylic Paintings is a fantastic Etsy shop where you can find all kinds of paintings, wreaths, and vine creations, all personally created by the owner, Holly.

Earth Whispers - Natural Wreath and Acrylic Paintings

All of Holly's wreaths are personally created and handwoven by her and are not commercially made.  They are woven from natural materials that she has found in the wild and each one is a 'one-of-a-kind' creation.  Her paintings are also inspired by the beautiful mystery of nature or from within.   Come take a look at some of the wonderful creations Holly has to offer at her shop.

Burst of Red Autumn Dogwood Wreath

This beautiful wreath is full of wild feathers and fall colours.  Handwoven out of red twig dogwood branches cut from the wild, it measures 23 1/2" tall by 19" wide to a depth of 8".

Wild turkey and pheasant feathers, thistles, straw flowers, bright orange silk mums, maple leaves, and bright orange bud sprigs were added for that extra burst of fall colour.

Isn't it wonderful?

For nature and history lovers, there is a short, interesting note about red twig dogwood on the owner's site.

Natural Autumn Wreath - Pheasant in the Briars

This beautiful briar wood creation has a wild and thorny look and measures 22" by 17".  It has been baked in the over to ensure it is bug-free and coated twice with satin polyurethane for protection.

Wild pheasant feathers, woodland fern seedpod stems, dusty lavender, green thistles, rustic silk mums, field flowers, and berries add beauty to this wild briar wood.

Only for indoor use!

Summer Garden Natural Virginia Creeper Vine Wreath

One of the owner's favourite wreaths in her collection, this wreath is made from wild Virginia creeper vine.

Many different flowers and accessories were added to make a bold and beautiful wreath.

For indoor use only!

Happy Winter Day Grapevine Wreath

If you are thinking ahead to the holidays, Holly's shop carries several holiday wreaths (like this one) for special occasions.  You can find ones for Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving, and Christmas too. 

This wreath was made from mature wild grapevine.  Decorations include pine, twigs, black walnuts, pinecones, cinnamon sticks, snowflakes, snow dust, and Aromatique oil to bring out that 'oh so wonderful' Christmas smell. 

It is perfect for indoor or outdoor use!

Walnuts N Berries Candle Ring or Wreath

My mom would love this one!

This lovely creation measures 10 1/4" x 10 1/4" x 2 1/2" and will accomodate a candle with a 3" base or less.

This wreath was created using black walnuts and faux red berries. 

After the Rain Acrylic Painting

This 8" x 10" painting was created by sponging acrylic paint onto the canvas and then using naturally falling rain to create the effects that you see in this painting.

Take a look at this fabulous shop and see the treasures within!  For those living outside of the United States, Holly does ship internationally.

She is also a proud member of Designstyleguide.net.
