It’s Maker’s Monday! I hope you have enjoyed the blog series so far. It has been an amazing journey, meeting wonderful makers, sharing their passion and craft and highlighting their small businesses. I’ll be taking a holiday break from the series and will be picking back up after the New Year. Next week Monday is the launch of House Fenway’s 2nd Annual Holiday Small Maker’s Gift Guide. A guide highlighting 60+ makers, offering tons of promotions, and gift ideas for the holidays. I hope you check it out!
Meet Wildflower Parade
This week’s maker is a busy lady with a wonderful talent. Meet Alicia from Wildflower Parade , a SAHM of four amazing kiddos with a knack for sewing. Alicia started the business with the motivation of reducing the use of “throw-away items” such as napkins, paper towel and grocery bags. This motivation was not only a step to become more eco-friendly but a smarter way to save money on dispensable products.
Wildflower Parade offers an array of products and styles to help you become more eco-friendly without compromising style! Check out Alicia’s Etsy shop for the full selection of product: Wildflower Parade

It’s Maker’s Monday time, my favorite day of the week! Monday’s on House Fenway I get the oppurtunity to share another maker’s wonderful shop, amazing talent and product. As the weeks go on I have come to the realization of how important it is to shop small, support local and help empower others to do the same. Buying from a small business helps support someone else’s dream. The product you receive is unique. Your purchase has been created with such incredible thought and passion —something you rarely if ever receive from a “Big Box” store purchase. So with that thought (as I jump down from my soap box), I want to introduce to you this week’s amazing maker, Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.
Meet Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.
When Fall arrives it’s candle burning season in our house! Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh baked Coffee Crumb Cake or Hot Apple Cider in the house? (even better, without having to turn on the oven, dirty the kitchen or wash a dish!) Candles for Dandelion Wishes do just that — make your house smell amazing. Their small batch candles and wax melts are 100% soy-based, which means they burn clean and contain no toxins or pollutants. These hand-poured candles and melts are offered in a wide range scents, here are some of the my seasonal favorites…

It’s Monday again and that means another Maker’s Monday here on House Fenway! Every Monday I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them. It has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations and I want to share that all with you. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is a newbie to the community, opening up on Etsy this Summer.
Meet the Maker
Meet Curious Timbers, John & Ashley, a husband and wife duo from the heart of Utah.

From fancy script lettering to custom seasonal signs, you’d be sure to find something fitting to accent your home.
Curious Timbers also has a wide selection of paint and stains options available to help you match your existing decor. The skies the limit when it comes to customization. Here is a quick preview of current signs offered at Curious Timbers:
