RaraAvis' Shop

I live in California with my husband, our two birds, and one cat. Please PM me with any questions or if you need additional photos!


More items will be added!

Star Wars Totes (1.75 points each)
Choose either Vader or Logo. The logo measures approximately 15'' wide at the top, 12.5'' tall, and about 4.5'' deep at the bottom. It has a black canvas bottom and black webbing straps. Vader is black canvas with the Darth Vader cotton fabric in the middle and canvas straps. It is a little more narrow than the logo tote (measurements coming soon).

Unicorn Tote (1.25 points)
Tote has a gold unicorn pattern and black canvas straps. It is has fleece interfacing and a light blue lining.

Metal Frame Purses (3 points each)
The purses are on interchangeable metal frames. The bottom of each purse is stiff and they all have metal purse feet. They all also have a small interior pocket and the straps are detachable.  Claim mint critters (3 pts), or strawberries (3 pts). The mint critter measures about 5'' x 5'' on the bottom and the strawberries measure about 4 3/4'' x 4 3/4''. Both stand about 6'' tall.


Small jar of whimsies (.5 points each)
Choose Jar 1 or Jar 2. They are small plastic screw top jars that measure about 2.75'' x 2.75''. They both contain metal charms, glass beads, buttons, and more! They both have similar items, so if you claim both you may get some duplicate items. I will also include some stickers and paper goods with claim.

Mini Winter Bunting .5 points
The flags span about 46 inches.

Tote Bags  (1.25 points)
Choose Arrow Tote or Reversible Halloween Tote

Little needle felted hen & chick (1.5 points)
Needle felting in little terracotta pot. About 4 3/8 inches tall.

Ceramic bottle necklaces (1.5 points each)
The bottles are ceramic and made in Peru. Each is glazed on the inside so they can hold oils or perfumes. They measure about 2'' tall. I have added antique bronze chain to each. Choose raven, octopus, or hamsa. Note: the raven bottle has a tiny flaw on the top rim on one side of the bottle (shown in the second photo).

Resin skull jewelry (1.5 points each)

Glass skull bottle necklace (1.5 points each)
They are tiny glass skull bottles on a sterling silver chain about 23'' long. Each chain style is slightly different. Choose from either black bead top or orange bead top. I can shorten the length if needed. It was hard to get a good picture of all the detail.

They come on sterling silver ear wires. Choose: Pink heart ghosts, aqua bow ghosts, aqua heart ghosts, or black bow skull & crossbones.

Pendants (0.25 points each)

Cali returned home today after a wonderful stay with Smeddley. Cheesy

Smeddley totally spoiled us with goodies and made a fantastic scrapbook!

She sent Cali back with tons of new friends! Smeddley knows how much I love her amigurumi! She also made fabulous leaves and a great little tea wallet. She sent an awesome belly dancing skirt/scarf and a beautiful tote bag.

Lots of origami!!! Cali got to go to book club so she even included some books! And a lovely book mark.

Tons and tons of tea!!! A really pretty bracelet and a nice coaster from her town. Just so many awesome things!

Here are some fun pages from the scrapbook...

I have never heard of dill pickle soup. I can't wait to try!

Thanks so much Smeddley for hosting Cali and the wonderful package! Grin

For some reason I had tomorrow marked down as the send out day. I will be packing up Dani tonight!

Here are just a few picks I took of Dani yesterday, while my brother was trying to dig out a bobcat stuck in the mud.

It took a while. but he finally got it free.

The tm patches are great and I love the pug plush! The spider jewelry is so cool!

Those treats look so yummy! The painting is so cute!

I received an awesome supplies package from Mlsocci74! She sent me a bunch of great scrapbooking supplies and a bunch of bezel cups with matching glass cabochons.

I have already tried out the edge distresser and it works really well!

All of the supplies will be fun to use in my scrapbooks!

Thanks so much Mlsocci74! Cheesy

It's been raining all week and I have been sick, so we haven't been doing much. On Saturday we were able to go out and get some yummy pho with Dani at a place we like in Berkeley, Ca.

The hoop is fabulous!!!

I received an awesome package from lindyv321!

She made such cute items!!! The little paper hearts have holes punched in them so they can be strung together with the twine. I already have the love sign hanging on a wall.

The card is so adorbale! The little hearts inside float around.

Thanks so much lindyv321! I had fun swapping with you! Cheesy
