shop announcement & giveaway!

After some consideration about the way my shops were set up I decided to combine my jewelry and handbags! Why, you may be asking? Or maybe you are thinking, why didn't she do this a long time ago! 

I thought initially that having the two shops would look cleaner. However, I neglected to realize that by keeping things separate I was not only losing sales but my jewelry customers had no idea that I made handbags! So before the holiday shopping commences I decided to combine the shops to make things easier. Now you can find all of my clutches, handbags and jewelry in one spot! My vintage will remain separate only because it is doing just fine on its own.

In honor of this transition I've decided to have a GIVEAWAY!
One lucky winner will win $20 to use towards anything in my 

I will use random.org to pick the winner on September 3rd!

Here's how to enter:
Each comment counts as separate entry!
1. Visit my Etsy shop and let me know with a comment here what you like or even don't like about the way I've combined things. 

2. Follow me! My blog, my Twitter, my Facebook and leave a separate comment for each.
3. Share this giveaway on your blog, Twitter or Facebook and leave a separate comment for each telling me where you have done so.

That's it! Pretty easy to enter! Good luck everyone!

that time of year

It's August and I always know that fall is coming because my mother's Hibiscus starts to bloom. It's a beautiful magenta color and it makes me smile when I see it so I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
