New Etsy Appearance and New Home Decor for Sale!

I've had some computer trouble for a while now and I'm hoping to get everything fixed by tomorrow. However, until I get my laptop back from the repair center, I've been putting my fiance's computer to good use! I have been wanting to update my Etsy lately and I finally took the first steps to do that today. 

Below, I have a brand new icon and banner for my Etsy that I created with the use of a website called Canva. The moss photo is from my own collection and it was taken during a "fossil hunt" with my parents on their mountain property in Tennessee in 2013. 

Aside from updating my shop's appearance, I have several new items that I'll be posting soon. Here's my latest creation that I've listed. 
A 7x10 vintage ornate filigree frame from Italy, with domed glass over peacock feathers that I arranged in a fish scale pattern.
I was inspired to create this piece after having a dream about it. In the dream, I was walking around in someone's house and spotted an oval filigree frame on a shelf with peacock feathers behind the glass, displayed in a lovely and unique fish scale pattern. It was so beautiful I found myself envious of whoever owned such a great home decor piece. When I woke up, I decided right away to see if something similar existed on the web. To my surprise, no one had created anything like it... and so, I decided that I would!

Beaded Barefoot Sandals

After seeing so many people wearing beautiful "barefoot sandals" on Pinterest, I thought maybe I would give creating them a shot. I purchased some barefoot sandals in 2012 from some lovely ladies I met during "The World's Longest Yard Sale" and love them! I wore them to bellydance classes every chance I got while I lived in Tennessee. They are super comfy!

I wanted to create really unique sandals with a simple design and, to my relief, I was able to find several gorgeous focal beads on clearance at a local craft store. 
I plan to make as many sandals as possible before summer ends. Wish me luck! Finding time to create is difficult these days.

So far, I have two styles available in my newly re-opened Etsy shop. I'm still going through my inventory to rework my older pieces and introduce new product. 
Stop by my shop and say hello! I do custom orders and always appreciate feedback.

Etsy Feature - "BeijoFlor"

While searching for opalescent statement jewelry on Etsy, I came across this shop and fell in love with every piece that Nicole Lauandos has for sale! Please stop by her shop "BeijoFlor" and check out her work. She has some truly lovely things!

Here's part of her personal bio: "For the past 13 years, color has been the heart of all Nicole’s work, whether it be the iridescent blues of a flamboyant morpho butterfly, or the neon glow of an exuberant gemstone. Always rich in hue, but never garish, Nicole’s jewelry is a must for every woman who yearns to introduce a splash of delicious color into her wardrobe."

Snow Days in Tennessee

My father posted some beautiful photos of the snow in my hometown this past week. Makes me feel even more homesick just looking at them. I miss the snow!
