Team Tuesday: EtsyNJ Team Blog Hop

"I love simple, classic beach decor. Whites and neutrals fill a room so you can sit back and enjoy the brightest blue ocean view imaginable (I'm dreaming again, I don't live with an ocean view).
And as much as I love the beach, of course I love my little guy even more. He is constant inspiration to me. He is my lucky charm when searching for sea glass and he is my sunshine on rainy days." This is just a portion of the profile of our Tuesday Team Blog Shoppe: Beachchik.

Etsy Twitter Team ~ Great Mother's Day Items

Every week, the Etsy Twitter Team chooses a Shop of the Week ~ one of our wonderful members is showcased & interviewed, for all to get to know us!

As I checked out the SOTW's for the past month, I found a few items
to showcase here at From Nancy's Heart, for Mother's Day.
It is approaching and you don't want to be caught short for this most special day.

"One-of-a-kind fused glass jewelry created to help customers express their true personality. What ever your personalily type ... bold, sassy, modern, classic, sporty, edgy, daring, elegant, trendy, or unique. We have a beautiful pendant just for you."

Pink Accents - Fused glass drop earrings ~ Layers of pink accents are fused on a white glass base. Each piece measures approximately 1/2" square (1.3 cm) without bail.
Such a lovely pair of earrings and pair them with this terrific pendant...

Somebody Loves You - Fused glass pendant ~ A lovely white tear drop pendant with subtle pink accents.

Shop of the Week (April 5~11th) ~ Purple Lemon Designs:

Her custom products are designed to complement her customer's personality. Kelly says, "When using my products, I like for my customers to feel as if they are sending a stamp imprint or piece of stationery that reflects them." Customer satisfaction is what drives her: "When I create a stationery or stamp design that my client loves and feels is perfect for their everyday needs, wedding day or other special event, that makes all the hard work worth it."

Small Customized Flowery Bookplate Rubber Stamp ~ This 1" x 1" stamp is perfect for the avid reader. Be sure to get those books you lend back from friends by marking them with your own personalized rubber stamp.

To me, this is a Fabulously unique gift for any Mom, Sister, G-mom or Special Gal in your life; especially if she's the type of gal, like me, who's quickly building her own library!

Shop of the Week (March 29th ~ April 4th) ~ Pretty Cheap:

"I am the Frugal Artisan making many different kinds of beautiful bargains! Look in my shop for classic timeless jewelry designs in precious metal, natural stone, and pearls as well as richly colored original photo cards, pressed flower stationary, and embroidery and needlework cards (all very time honored classic crafts)."

Hard Cover Journal - Silk Stripe ~ Nicely proportioned slim blank journal suitable for sketches, notes, or diary. Silk upholstery fabric in two-toned stripe used on the front and back covers. Wonderful to hold and touch. An eco-choice.

I have to say, that I just love this item and if you have anyone in your life who either Journals, Sketches, Exercises or just likes jotting notes down... this is such a lovely gift.

Shop of the week (March 22 ~ 28th) ~ Mrs Kwitty's Cottage (Misseskwittys):

Her shop offers a variety of handmade cottage style items in fabric and paper, which she is delighted to ship domestically or internationally. Her attitude about her work shows clearly. "I just love to make things with my hands---pretty, colorful things. I love to get an idea in my head, go down to my studio and pick out some pretty fabrics or papers, and then allow that thought to become something you can actually hold in your hand!

Prettiful Purple Keychain Snap Wallet --a pretty little place to keep all your cards ~ These are the handiest little things!! It's a card wallet/keychain. The snap wallet is the perfect size for your driver's license, ID, bus card, your debit card, and maybe even a few bucks.

Orange you glad for days like this.

Sunny Days...

Today was such a lovely day... rarely do I wake with a happiness that makes me sing (especially that early in the morning!); yet, today, was that day.

So off I went to do my daily errands ~
First, go see my most favorite hair stylist, Tonia ~
What a lovely gal, Tonia, and I believe that she will have me on roller skates before the summertime ends ~ with a wonderful hair cut!

After a lovely cup of tea with my friend, off I went through the park, spotting some sweet dolls peeking out among the blooms. My favorite shoppe is just around the corner ~ where the dollies were pointing the way.

Mr. Angelo's grocery store...
All his veggies are so bright and fresh. I just love the smells of all the fruits and baked goods there! There are times, I just hang around chatting with Mr. Angelo just to soak in the cheery atmosphere of his grocery shoppe!

I was swept away by all the wonderful colors that I found in the grocery store. Thank goodness I had a great friend with me who had a camera phone! So many sunny colors on this sunny day! Perhaps one day I will purchase the "spiny melon", first, I have to stop laughing every time I say the name ~

So, I made my way back home...
while looking at the bounty I purchased today, I gathered together items in the craft room that would match all the wonderful colors I saw during my walk.
I recently did an interview, where I was asked where I found my inspiration ~ believe it, I really didn't have a clue; yet as I walked through the city, I found spots of vibrant colors that just made their mark in my brain!
Thanks Tonia & Mr. Angelo for making my day special!

Team Tuesday: EtsyNJ Team Blog Hop

"Armed with 2 sticks and some fashion sense I set out to create unique and different knitted items. I am a passionate about color, so I use many different colors in my work~~something for everyone~~ " This is a quote from our Team Blog Shoppe owner for this newest edition of Team Blog Hop Tuesday!

I have to say, these wonderful pieces aren't just "fashionable" they are wearable art work with fabulous details. The Bohemian Bride Upcycled shawl (pictured above) "This beautiful upcycled ivory bridal shawl was inspired by Happiknits love of Somerset magazines, Belle Armoire and Altered Couture. Her spring 2010 line is a collection of eco-friendly pieces. This shawl is made with 100% recycled materials. Collected and revived, found during many early morning weekend trips to the local markets."

"Growing up 5 minutes from the beach and having a grandmother who had a beach house, Happiknits spent most of her life either on sand or in the ocean. This piece was inspired by her grandmother's beach house which was in the family for several generations."
I, personally, adore all the special touches that are included with this lariat that sets it apart from anything store bought.

"This piece includes 2 seperate lariats, they can be worn together for a true burst of gorgeous color or seperate for a focal piece. The first lariat is handknit in a super soft acrylic mix yarn in a stunning shade of orange. At each end of the lariat is a knit leaf. Handsewn onto each leaf is a felted leaf in a pale yellow shade."

Happiknits is have a wonderful SPRING SALE ~ so stop by and check out all her wonderful items! Stop by and see what inspires Happiknits at http://www.happiknits.blogspot

You gotta have friends...

Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty. ~Sicilian Proverb

I wanted to share a wonderful gifty surprise I received from a terrific email pal, Carrie!
My girl just LOVES her Easter!! And she was so very thoughtful with sending me a sweetie bunny of my own!
Let me tell you, my little Pinkie, that's what I named her ~ was already getting into mischief! Seeing the trim on the table, she just had to start playing.

From this Sicilian girl to all my friends ~
I'll always be there no matter what!
And again, thanks dollie, you're the best!
