Savannah looooves Ethel, our guinea pig. Ethel is plump and cute as can be. She loves to eat dandelions. They are her favorite meal. Savannah loves to have me take pictures of her with Ethel, so I thought I would post one for you! I am not a photographer, so excuse my horrible photos! We hope Ethel will live a long time. We have no idea how old she is, but she has been at our house for about 5 years! Her best friend Lucy died a few months ago, and we thought she would be heart broken, but she seems to be surviving ok. Maybe she is glad she gets the whole house to herself now....

This week I am featuring a new and absolutely beautiful shop on Etsy called Jamie's Jewels. She is a SAHM from the East Coast and opened shop in March of 2009. She sells all kinds of fabulous necklace, bracelets and earrings. I was so excited when I found her shop! It amazes me how these talented people make this beautiful jewelry!
I love each of the names she gives her jewelry pieces. You can find out more about her by reading the description of each piece. If you like something that has already sold....no problem, because most of her items can be recreated!
Check out one of my favorite necklaces called
"Sense and Sensibility"! Go check out her shop! www.jayval.etsy.com

There are a lot of jewelry shops on Etsy, but this one stands out to me as one that has a great selection, good quality and beautiful jewelry! This shop is called Mystic Wynd. You have to go check it out. Go read Karen's profile. It is very interesting. The jewelry is gorgeous!
Karen's shop opened in October of 2008. She grew up in Chicago, Ilinois, but is now living in Scottsdale Arizona. Her passion is jewelry and you can tell! They are simply lovely. This piece of medieval jewelry is one of my favorites!

I just listed these pretty Mother's Day cards in my Etsy shop! I can't believe how fast this month has gone....Mother's Day is May 10th! I have listed lots of new things recently in my shop, including Mother's Day cards.
Making cards is one of my favorite hobbies. It is so fun to create something with pretty paper!
Do you have a hard time thinking of something to give your mom for Mother's day? I know I do. My Mom doesn't need any little knick knacks, books, or decorations for her house....But she loves to give people cards! How about a set of cards for your Mother or Mother-in-law? Cards are so expensive in the stores, and they are so corny. I love to get hand made cards from people and I know they love to get them too.
Check out my Etsy shop for lots of pretty hand made greeting cards for a great price too!
****If you mention that you read my blog and make a comment here, I will give you free shipping in my shop! Convo me before you make your order and I will take off the shipping. How does that sound for an awesome deal? Go check it out!

I did a trade recently with this shop on Etsy and let me tell you, I loved it! I got a bottle of body spray called Love Spell type and it is wonderful! It smells just like the real thing from you know where...I was very impressed! It doesn't leave a residue on your skin. It just kind of disappears, but the smell stays all day. I would highly recommend buying from this shop. Her prices are reasonable and she was so friendly. Check it out!

I found this new shop when I was poking around Etsy one day. I loooove Vintage things and this woman has the most fabulous items in her shop! I think the name is so fun too! Maybe it's the word gumball (I love all the colors!) and Vintage together....I don't know, but this shop is awesome!
She just opened at the end of March, so she is brand spankin' new! If you love vintage and you Scrapbook (even if you don't!) I would recommend checking out her shop. It's so bright and cheerful. Check out the picture. This is an example of what she has in her shop!
