I am slowly but surely adding silver items to my shop. I have been so captivated by the shine of the gold that my mind couldn't think of designs in silver. Now they are slowly trickling in. First off are these
Oval Earrings in black and white. Very striking and elegant!
On a different note, my parents finally have the closing of their new home tomorrow afternoon. I am so excited for them! This really is a great house and I will show pictures once they are in.

It is always excited and it happened again last night around 8:30...one of my items graced the frontpage on Etsy!
It was this colorful embroidered Felt Necklace. Really looked great and I'm just a tiny bit sad I couldn't get a screen shot of the whole page. My laptop doesn't fit much. just good that mine was on the first row.
Now for the stats. During the hour or two that it was up there, I received over 380 views on the item, 26 shop hearts, and 18 new hearts on this item. Of course, also lot's of more views and hearts for other items in the shop due to the frontpage.

It's high time for some new Fresh Friday Finds! And I'm so excited to show you all these great amazing creatures.
Can you guess what this is?! YES, a Flava Flava Bunny. Not sure what that is? Well, look at it! Wouldn't it be great for your cell phone, money/coins, mp3 player, credit cards ... just about anything. I love these kinds of little purses and I think I will have to start a collection.
And what about this Mommy and me Brooch! I love the big eyes and French look. Such a neat idea and I keep wondering how they would look with Lilly and my face on them. Pretty funny, hey.
This is one of my favorite pieces right now! A cute littleBaby Elephant Walk Sculpture not only perfect for Lilly's room or mine, but also a great present for my Mom who loves and collects elephants. This one is just so different! I just love how he is squished.
There are so many great critters and creatures out to be found on Etsy. No wonder with all these great minds!

I'm so excited to finally be able to list the first of these Embroidered Felt Earrings. They are made just like all our other felt pieces but with metal post backs. We got this great idea from one of our customers. She selected a pin for her grandma's birthday and asked if we could make a matching pair of post earrings to go along. Then she explained that her grandma never wears earrings in the winter because they felt too cold to her. So our felt would be great, since it isn't cold! We think it is a great idea and they look so bright and fun! Can't wait to make more...

We had the best time today at the German Sommerfest in Walpole here in Massachusetts. So much good food! I had Leberkaese, Sauerkraut, Bratwust, and the best bread. I wish I did have room for a lot more or at least double. Oh, and I almost forgot about the yummy apple crisp. Now I could eat more of that. And of course all the great dark beer!
They always have a very German band there with all the traditional songs. Lilly loved it! She was bobbing and dancing and clapping all along.
And as a special treat, Lilly got to go on a pony ride! She had no reservations going on that pony and actually couldn’t belief her luck. All along she sang "Hoppe, hoppe Reiter". And towards the end she begged the horse to go "Schneller, schneller" (faster, faster). She is a natural on the horse! BTW, did you see that guy in the 'Lederhosen'?!
Well, it was lots of fun and all will be back next year. I sure will be there first thing!

I finally did it and opened up a Facebook fan page! Definitely was a learning curve but now I look forward to posting and populating it. This will be another great way of staying in touch and I will post SECRET SALES more frequently over there. So you really should become a fan - aren't you already LOL!
Also let me know what you think and if you have any great ideas about what else to add. I'd love the input!

I am having more and more fun with all the gold supplies I got to make the most gorgeous and elegant jewelry without the heavy price tag normally associated with gold.
This delicate Necklace is one of my current favorites! The soft pink of the Swarovski crystals make this necklace so feminine and petite. But I just got a few more great charms and gemstones and can't wait to work with them!
