If you wander into my Etsy shops, you'll find them as empty as those Etsy minis to your right. Here's the notice that you'll find:
*****I'm taking a few days off to enjoy the Season. I will still be checking my shop and answering convos, so if you have a question about a previous order or need to get in touch with me, feel free to drop me a convo. See you in 2009!*****
I love vintage bar ware and have accumulated a lot of it over the years. I was browsing the vintage category on Etsy this morning and did a search for martini shakers and was so thrilled to see a list of them. I want each and every one of them, but that would sort of be overkill. So, this week in my 'Spreading the Etsy Love' mini (to your right), I'm highlighting cocktail shakers. Pick one up for yourself or someone on your list.
Yesterday, I waited patiently for the snow that was in the forecast. See previous blog post. Well, my patience paid off.
We did get our first snow of the season, and maybe our only snow. So, I was determined to take advantage of it and enjoy every inch of it. Two inches to be exact. I love winter! I love snow! Thank you Mother Nature.
It's been raining buckets, here in Tennessee. The last of the leaves have fallen from the trees and the landscape is shaded in hues of brown and grey. My designs seem to mirror the colors that surround me, as you can see by the collage.
I love this time of year. Our weather can change at the drop of a hat. Take today for instance. It's raining. And windy. And the temperature is at 34 degrees. The weather forecast says that the temps will be dropping throughout the day. Insert BIG smile here. We could possibly get snow! And for me, that is a BIG occasion. So, keep your fingers crossed that the temperature starts to drop as the day goes on.
If you haven't already noticed, I started posting a new mini from my Vintage shop; which is not open. With this mini, I'll be Spreading the Etsy Love by posting some of my favorite sellers and things and new discoveries for y'all to see. The first one is up and it's loaded with some of my fav jewelry girls. If you haven't already, check them out.
OK, I best go check the thermometer. My nose is cold. It must be dropping!
I've always loved working with freshwater pearls. So many colors, shapes and sizes to choose from. And they're so versatile. You can dress them up. Or you can dress them down. They stand on their own and they blend in right beside gemstones or vintage glass.
In my shop you can find them hand knotted, wire worked or simply strung.
But one thing's for certain.....they're not your mama's pearls.
You can see what's in stock right now in my shop by typing 'freshwater pearls' in my search bar. And this weekend, until 12:00 midnight EST, I'm offering free shipping. Hope to see you there.
It doesn't take much to get me excited. A few weeks ago, I was turned onto Picnik and was thrilled to finally be able to add text to Etsy banners and avatars when I wanted to. Then yesterday, I was downloading some pictures onto Picasa and got a pop up notifying me that they now had an upgrade. Carp! Just what I don't need right now. I didn't have the time to relearn everything that I already knew by heart. And today, I'm eating those words because I just realized that the new version of Picasa has the ability to add text to photos! Oh yeah, that's great news for me. Told you that it didn't take much to get me excited! Until next time.....
