Fashion Tip Tuesday ... Earrings and a purse

This beautiful purse made by http://www.tamamikobag.etsy.com/ would look adorable with the Little Cherry Earrings! I think I should change the name of Fashion Tip Tuesday to My Daydreams! ;)

Vintage Style Rings in the store!

I had some pretty vintage clip on earrings, some silver adjustable rings and adhesive. I put them all together and the Vintage Style Ring collection was born. I have many more to make and to photograph but I got a good jump on the listing this weekend.

Imagine sipping your cocktail with one of these beauties on your hand!

Check them out here.

Favorite Things ... Orange Blossoms

When I was a little girl we piled into the Thunderbird and drove from OH to FL to go to Disney World. That's where I got this snap wallet with pretty embroidery. I don't remember picking it out at the store, but I have used it ever since. Right now it's storing Amelia's cash. We have to hide it from Daddy since he's been known to dip into it. :) From that trip, I also remember the orange blossom perfume. It came in a little orange shaped container with a white lid. I LOVED the smell of it. I can still remember the smell. I think I have the container in a box in the attic.

I didn't make one new thing this weekend!

I was a busy girl. Birthday parties, family dinners, church, grocery store, 7 year old room cleaning, yardwork! Lots to do but we had a lot of fun doing it! I'll just show you a picture of something that I made on a weekend, just not this past one! :) Have a great, fun week full of love and joy and peace!

Favorite Things

Here is another one of my favorite things. This cat has been through a lot! Her head is broken off from her neck, but she's recovering. She's lived in three houses and yet she still wants me to be her's! That's some unconditional love. :)

Here are my new favorite things in my store. It's the Spot 'o Coffee collection. This can be worn together for those who like sets... or separately for those who don't. Have a great day!

Talented Curators

Etsy has a feature called the treasury. There's a link to it on the front page of etsy.com. If you are lucky enough to grab a spot you can have fun creating your own "front page". Etsy staff goes into the treasury and chooses for the front page spot. Here are two that I am featured in.

My brass charm bracelet and my a little sparkle earrings were chosen. I'm honored to be in these lists! Just wanted to share! :)

Fashion Tip Tuesday ... Dress Your Wrists

Three-quarter sleeves... short sleeves... I can see my arms again! They exist! :) They are looking kind of bare though. Hmmm... I know! Bracelets! That's what's missing!

OK, honestly, I am wearing long sleeves today. It's still kind of COLD here in Chardon, OH... but I thought about wearing short sleeves and I thought about bracelets! Over the years of my jewelry making I've come to the point where if I don't have a necklace on it feels similar to not wearing a bra. I feel like something is missing! I've come to that point with bracelets. Whenever I can actually see my wrists, I feel odd without something on them. I've become an addict. I'll admit it.

Anyway.... today's tip is consider bracelets to go with your short sleeve outfits. Here's a link to the bracelets in my store as of today. I'll be adding more and more and more throughout the weeks to come! Bracelet Link

Have a great day :)

Front Page!

Good morning! I had minutes of fame this morning! I was on the front page of Etsy! I just caught it. I was there, went back to look again and I was gone... but I grabbed a screen shot! I'm not sure where it came from since I'm not in the treasury pages and I cut the top of the screen off so I can't tell who made it! That's my necklace there on the bottom of the screen. :)

Why is it that....

during the week I have to drag Amelia out of bed at 7:45 AM but on the weekends she wakes me up at 6:30 AM? :)

It makes me laugh once I've had my cup of coffee. Amelia says on school days why should she get up early? On weekends she gets to play so of course she will get up early. Kids... love 'em!

Have a great weekend! I'll be wire wrapping all weekend so check back on Monday for the new necklaces and maybe bracelets! Short sleeves are back and our wrists deserve some attention!

Friday Special

Hi and happy Maple Fest! It's the Geauga County Maple Fest days here in Chardon. I can hear the festivities from the festival. It's great! I love seeing all of the people walking up and down the road going to the square. This is one of the reasons I wanted to live by the town square. We walked up last night and got maple stirs. They are delicious and way too small! :) I'll post some pictures throughout the weekend so you can see what it's all about. http://www.maplefestival.com/

Onto the special... It's like a little treasure hunt! Do a search in my store with the word Vintage... anything that comes up will be 10% off all day! If you do decide to purchase something today, please mention this blog and wait for a revised invoice from me reflecting your special "blog reader" discount! :)

Favorite Things

Look at this grater! There is this great place... it's a co-op where people sell their cool finds. My husband, the true shopper of the family, LOVES to go there every once in awhile. I like it to, but I get nervous going since my will power isn't the greatest. Last time we went there, I did pretty good. I only spent $2 (plus tax) on this cute grater! I don't use it (I don't even eat cheese!), but I fell in love with her. It didn't hurt that she was made in Paris, France. :) Anyway... thought I'd share a photo of her since she's so darn cute!

Speaking of cute... check out my favorite things bracelet (coincidence I promise!).

Fashion Tip Tuesday - Personal Jeweler

Today's fashion tip is..... consider obtaining a personal jeweler, like me! :) The movie stars do it, right? Are you out there buying spring and summer clothes? Do you need the perfect unique accessory that you won't see on anyone else in your neighborhood? If you answered yes, to either of those questions then you are in need of a personal jeweler.
Seriously... as funny as I am always trying to be, I've made many things for my customers in the past. Some I've dreamed up and some they've dreamed up. Either way, I love doing it. Sooooo... if there's ever anything that you're looking for and you don't see it in my store quite the way you imagined it, please get in touch! You can contact me through the contact link in Etsy or at directly at puffluna@adelphia.net
The earrings pictured are called glitter heart. Read all about it and buy them here

Something is Going to Happen

I'm excited... something special is going to happen and I can hardly keep my mouth shut about it! I'll let you know what it is soon. :)

I decided to feature my petite bird pieces that I made last week. I saw these little birds and fell in love. They are sterling silver as are all of the other silver components. I oxidized the chain and earwires but left the little birdy bright for a nice contrast. I love how the dark chain looks on the skin. The necklace is perfect for everyday with everything. Petite and cute! I've already sold 1 pair of earrings, but you can link here to purchase.... Buy the Necklace Buy the Earrings
Have a great day :)
