Monday Marketplace - Irish Rose Creations

Each Monday I will be featuring one of the talented members of the Old Farmhouse Gathering Etsy group. Grab a drink and get comfy and read about today's featured artist and then check out the shops of some other members along the sides of my blog.

Today's featured artist is Kimberly Scott of Irish Rose Creations.


1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
The name of my shop is Irish Rose Creations. Many of my crocheted lace items are in the style of Irish Lace Crochet and I incorporate roses in many of these items so I just combined these two concepts

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I’ve been on Etsy for over a year now

3. What type of items do you offer?
Primarily I offer crocheted lace doilies and heirloom afghans, as well as other vintage-inspired needful such as greeting cards and tags, and soy candles.

4. How long have you been crafting?
This is kind of like asking me how old I am. I’ve been crocheting and crafting for well over thirty years now. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was twelve and I’ve been at it ever since.

5. Who or What inspires you?
I’m rather a color addict and continually find inspiration through new color combinations. I love the “shabby chic” and “cottage-style” d├ęcor and find inspiration through that as well and just anything vintage.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
My favorite item would have to be my Shabby Pink Ring of Roses. It was one of my first attempts in thread crochet during a time when my husband was first diagnosed with cancer. Thread crochet quickly taught me patience and provided me with much needed moments of reflection. Since this doily has become one of my top sellers.
