Lush Embellishments

Those of us who sell, whether it be online or in an actual brick and mortar shop, know the value of presentation. 
It's an art, really, and it can make or break your reputation as a merchant.

When I began selling on ETSY last year, I quickly learned that to be successful when sending out orders, you need to do more than just slap some bubble wrap around your trinkets and toss some tissue paper in randomly.
I mean, that would be serviceable enough, but would it be memorable? Would it motivate a customer to not only leave you glowing FEEDBACK, but also to be a repeat buyer?

You see, I'm not only a seller, but I too am frequently a customer! And believe you me, I take note when a seller goes that extra mile to make sure that their orders are sent out not only quickly and safely, but also with a bit of flair as well.

Meet Kelli from
Seasonal Delights on Etsy.

Aren't these just lovely?
Wouldn't they add that extra oomph to your vintage pretties?
I sure do think so, which is why I've become a HUGE fan of Kelli's Etsy Shop of late.

She not only has a huge assortment of gift tags, but stickers, gift bags, bookmarks, greeting cards, ribbon trim and gift tag sets, adorned journals, muslin favor bags, stationery sets, garland banners, scrapbook embellishment kits, and much, much more!

I've begun sending my Etsy Orders out with Kelli's beautiful tags and stickers attached, and the response has been incredible.
Enough talking, here's a peek at what you can find in the
Seasonal Delights Etsy Shop.











And just in time for Easter...

Pretty nifty stuff, huh?
Pay Kelli a visit at her ETSY Shop soon, I'm sure you'll be able to find something you just can't live without!

Kelli also has a wonderful blog,
There Is No Place Like Home .
Head on over and say hi!

Next post, breaking news on my booth situation! It's good!

Have a great weekend!

White Wednesday with Frosty and Co.

I'm back for White Wednesday, and I've brought some friends
with me!

Y'all already know Mr. Twig and Havok and Belle.
But who's the studly cowboy over there on the left, you might be askin' yourself?

He's slowly melting out in the back 40 this afternoon, but he was the life of the party yesterday during our 24-hour visit by The Freezemeister!


I don't know how many times Mr. Twig had to stop Havok from hiking a leg on our snowy friend!

Gotta get the nose just right. Puppies are always helpful in these situations.

Mr. Twig's hat and my scarf...voila!

Meanwhile, later that evening...


Winnie's like "Snow? What snow? I just be chillaxin' inside the warm house!"

Be sure to visit Kathleen at Faded Charm for the complete list of all the
White Wednesday participants.

Stay warm!

This and That. And This.

And some more of that.
It's another everything but the kitchen sink post from yours truly!

First up, what's that white stuff in my St. Francis birdbath?

It's SNOW!!!

Yep, 60 some-odd miles NW of San Antonio, and we're under a
WINTER STORM WARNING with snowfall accumulations of up to 2-4 inches expected!
I mean, we get snow down here, it just rarely sticks. This stuff is stickin'!



  That's almost an inch right there on the deck railing! That a HUGE whoop for this part of Texas!

Mr. Twig and the Huskies.
Awww look, Belle (on the right) has her puppy tongue out, so as to catch snowflakes!

Str-e-e-e-e-e-t-c-h, Havok! It's only snow, it's not gonna hurt you!

Next up, one of my items was prominently featured on 
Etsy's blog, The Storque this past weekend!

If you click right HERE and scroll about a third of the way down, you'll find my Fall Splendor Oil Painting very prominently featured on the left-hand side, grouped with other "like" themed objects.


It was featured on the front page of Etsy's blog Sunday, and also went out in the e-mails they send out to all the gajillion members daily.
  I didn't even know about it, as I hadn't received the e-mail featuring me yet...a most kind blog friend congratulated me on the honor and tipped me off, and it was later confirmed by yet another Etsy selling friend that that was a pretty big deal and I should be proud. It's a tremendous amount of exposure, so yeah, I am a little psyched!  I'm even happier that the oil on canvas sold as a direct result of this unexpected publicity, so bonus!

Thirdly, I know that I posted the winner on my sidebar, but for those who didn't look there,
the winner of my Flea Market Style Magazine Giveaway
is Beth of Gypsy Fish Journal.
Congrats, Beth!

There's a good chance I'll have yet ANOTHER copy to include in my impending giveaway, so be sure to check back!

In other news, there's a new blogger I'd like to tell y'all about....









.... La!

Beautiful images from the beautiful Sandi at
A Cottage Muse-Dreaming in Vintage Whites.

She's only been blogging for a couple of weeks now, so please head on over and make her feel welcome, just like y'all always do.
Oh, and some of these ethereal images are from her dreamy ETSY SHOP, so be sure to pop on over to discover something you just can't live without! to make snow angels!
Have a beautiful Tuesday!
