Eclectic Charm

After spending hours upon hours taking photographs of my own jewelry yesterday, I've again come to the conclusion that there are many, many more people out there with a great deal more talent at this than I have.

There's some amazing artists on Etsy and there's so much to see. I love browsing through people's shops and their treasuries too. It was on a treasury where I discovered ImpulsiveCreativity, actually.

First, the picture stood out. It almost popped out of the page at me. I loved the colors and the design of this oil and vinegar set and it drew me right into her shop where I found a -second- item that I also fell in love with.

Impulsive Creativity has a wide variety of items in her shop. She also does custom orders and all of her items are handmade in a clean, smoke free environment.

If you're looking for gifts for your loved ones, I'd definitely recommend a browse.

Every Woman has a Little Bit of Vixen in Her

I'm very picky about my jewelry, especially the chunkier items in my collection. If it's not delicate with a definite shimmer to it, chances are I'm not going to wear it.

At least, that's how I used to feel until I saw
this shop in Etsy called VixenWare.

The curator of this shop is an artist who combines delicacy and substance into something truly unique and beautiful. In fact, there are so many drool~worthy items in her shop that the first time I wandered through there I stuck around for over and hour gawking.

The VixenWare shop? It's not just a jewelry store. It's not just an Etsy shop either. It's a gallery of amazing artwork. It's one of those spots I want to go back to again and again because there's just -so- much talent and beauty there to take in.

The artist that makes all of these beautiful and unique creations is Victoria Banner. She works mainly with fine silver, some sterling and 24 Karat Gold to create those beautiful pieces in her shop and offers the opportunity for her customers to make special requests for custom orders as well!

If you're looking for a unique and beautiful gift or even if you're just a jewelry, art or metal-worker fan, you definitely need to check out Victoria's shop so be sure to follow the link below and take a browse around!

On to the Romantic and More....

Once upon a time, I thought that I had some pretty impressive talent with a camera. It turns out? It wasn't the camera or my skills at all, it was what and where I was photographing. Nothing has rubbed this in more than the experience of being a part of Etsy and trying to photograph my own products!

Like most things I wish I could do but just don't have a talent for, I have a huge (and growing with every click of my own camera's lens) appreciating for talented photographers.

Susan O'Connor at Pretty Petal Studio definitely falls into this category!

In her shop, she has it described just right. "Where modern and vintage imagery intertwine."


I've browsed -all- of her work and I can honestly say there's not a single photograph in the entire shop that I didn't like. The one to the left? That's just one of my favorites. They're all beautiful. They're all remarkable. And some of them are downright breathtaking!


Not only Does Susan have the kind of imagery that reaches in to touch your heart and soul, it's reasonably priced as well. I can't imagine a better gift for anyone who's into photography or beautiful, imaginative works of art.

Her shop is definitely worth more than a glance, so go take a look and spend some time wandering through what I consider to be one of the most beautiful galleries of photography out there on the web!
