32 Days Until Christmas

Life has moved faster this year than in previous years. Seems like life moves faster after each birthday. Thanksgiving is this week and then the holiday rush will be underway as soon as the last of the turkey and trimmings have been devoured. Alright, maybe not that fast. Go to sleep and wake up for Black Friday to buy gifts in a crowded store filled with aggressive shoppers.

Well, why not skip the sales, stay home and shop online in a relaxed atmosphere. Keep on your pajamas, put on you favorite Christmas CD, sip a hot cup o’ joe and shop my favorite-ahem-your favorite store, Etsy.

For the next 32 days, I will present a gift link from the designer/vintage vendor that will come from an Etsy Treasury, a link to the treasury, as well as, a link to the shop of the curator who designed the treasury. This will give you more choices. Remember, you need an Etsy account to save and buy your favorites. You can register your new account here, and feel the relief of knowing you won’t be one of those late shoppers scrambling to find that perfect gift for your loved ones on Christmas Eve.

Ah, I suppose I need to define “Treasury” for those who are unfamiliar with the term. To promote other sellers, Etsians create beautiful treasuries filled with 16 amazing gifts which have been handmade or have become vintage. They compile these visual delights into a square of four rows. You can find intriguing foods: Vegan Lemon Ginger Caramels, upcycled stocking stuffers: a wallet made out of an old cassette, or larger gifts: Live Edge Maple Serving Plate. Anything your heart desires, you will find on Etsy. Register, if you haven’t done so, shop early, and, be at peace come Christmas Eve.

WoW NoW Sequins Collection

Sequins are all the rage this festive holiday, and all over Etsy, that I found it difficult to focus on one outfit. So, I solved the challenge by choosing one collection and four outfits which I will post every other day.

The WoW NoW Collection

No longer just  in black, white or red, sequins host a gamut of colors from spicy purples to hot pinks to iced aquas and to flamboyant edgy multi-hues.  Sparkle and shine this holiday when you wear sequins in any color and in any style.

Ruby Cocktail Ring…N/A

 A faceted ruby swarovski crystal lays on top of a bed of golden chain links.  A ring of comfort as it can be adjusted to your liking. Flash and sparkle all night long with this beautiful ring on your finger.

OMG! We Can Save the Earth!

One day last year I was thrilled by my own ingenuity of the recycling of a Nutter Butter plastic package. I cut a piece of green striped scrapbook paper, wrapped and taped it around the plastic container and used it as a pencil jar. Then, I used the yellow plastic lid as a holder for my soap bottle.

I was all smiles with my intelligence for about two days until my four-year-old niece came home with a piggy bank with legs and snout made out of empty thread spools,  a curlyque tail, and a body made out of a plastic water bottle which she had made at daycare. I was humbled. I oohed and awed. The piggy bank was actually quite good. Consequently, I never made another attempt at a recycled art or even thought about it, until…

I came across the most amazing recycled art which I saw on Etsy that made me yell, “Oh My God!”  I did a little jig in my chair and continued to yell, “Oh My God!” There’s hope for humankind, the economy and the earth!

My mind started racing with all the delicious recycling ideas which popped into my head. I thought about them all night. I could hardly sleep. Ideas, which should have popped into my head with the piggy bank, had I not allowed my earlier endeavor to be squashed by a four-year-old. Yea, my bad! I know…I have my faults. I’ll talk to my shrink about it. LoL!

Anyway, I digress. Get a load of these amazing, OMG! recycled artworks. Each one of these creations made me laugh…in a great way, smile, and feel just grand about human intelligence.

Pop Tab Purse  SOLD!  A chic, and edgy purse made from recycled soda pop tabs accentuated with black nylon yarn. Carry it with you to your upcoming holiday party. Come to think of it, carry this purse with you everywhere you go because this is a gotta-have-purse-of-the-century!

Tuffy’s creator made him from roller skates, a cocktail shaker, and a coffee pot. I also see spoons for ears, miniature binoculars for eyes, and the springy thingy from the inside of a large pen for a tail.  Take him home with you!

I’ve started partying early with political and organizational parties. I’m loving them. The people, the food, laughing, talking, and getting dressed up. However, I could use a few more blings and gold. So, off I went to Etsy in search of gold.
