Mountaineer Country

If you're new to the game, click here first!

Shannon is a very talented and inspiring homeschooling mama. She and her family have relocated to the foothills of beautiful West Virginia, seeking a simpler, family-centered lifestyle. That feeling of beautiful simplicity, faith and harmony shines through when you visit her shop or her blog.

Shannon, along with her family, work to create the "eclectic mix" of items you find in her shop. There are knitted and crocheted items such as scarves, bath puffs and other bath items. Then there are also turned or carved wooden items; adorable toy boats, lovely bowls, ink pens, and many others. All the items are of such fine quality, it's amazing that one family could produce them all! It would be hard to know what to choose - a bath puff would be a nice treat; but the toy boats are so precious!

So visit, and see for yourself - and find clue #9!

Krysti is relatively new to the Etsy world ;o) She just opened up her shop , in December! She creates her beautiful felted and antique bead works of art a little north of the border in Eagle, Alaska! Man, I thought I was worried about snow! She's a crafter by nature and has dabbled in different crafts throughout her life and is currently exploring her love of antique trade beads. The history of which is almost as fun as her jewelry it self!

She also has some fantastic felted items! I'm a particular fan of this scarf (pictured above) which I found in her shop.
