Welcome

Welcome to Southern Nature!
Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop! All my items are created and designed by me from natural products that are each unique. Welcome to Southern Nature! Unique Cotton Gifts and Nature items!
In business since 1988, I enjoy creating and making Southern Gift items from natural materials such as real "hand-picked by me" cotton bolls, okra pods & peach seeds!

A reminder...many of my items come gift packaged, ready to give! Not all do, though. I will indicate the gift packaging in the images & wording. If when you order, you indicate a gift, that means I would send a gift receipt rather than receipt with prices. If it is a gift you are sending directly to your friend, I can include my gift card & your name and a short message that you can indicate in the order comments. I am happy to do so!
Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

If you would like multiples of my listed items, please contact me as I can give a combined shipping & a better pricing that would be a better value!
If you are a buyer for a shop or museum, contact me for more wholesale information.

In addition to Southern Nature, I am working on "Southern Nature, Too", my Etsy shop with vintage items plus more!
Thank you for visiting my Etsy store! e to Nature. If you have any questions about my items, please contact me!

If your purchased item is to be given as a gift, please indicate in a note to me when you order. I usually include a receipt in your package and if it is a gift, I would include a gift receipt. I can also include a Southern Nature card with your wording and name if you let me know with the order.
