Wednesday Wishlist: Birds

June 19, 2013 at 8:25 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

This week’s Wednesday Wishlist is… BIRDS. I have a thing for birds. It’s sad and depressing, when I explain it, because my fondness for birds comes from a sad place… actually, a sad song. The line in the song is “Woe is me, oh woe, And the birds sing no more, Without you I cannot be.” That’s just a little tid bit from the song, but it’s probably my favorite sad song, ever. It also sounds much prettier in German. Trust me.

However. I had come to own this amazing bird ring. It reminds me of the song because this bird doesn’t sing. It’s made by a really awesome lady, over at GriffinsNestJewelry (The photo will take you to the birdie ring listing.)

Feature Friday: GriffinsNestJewelry

June 14, 2013 at 8:46 am (Etsy, Feature Friday)

This is one shop, I wouldn’t mind winning some huge shopping spree from! This lady makes amazing pieces of jewelry. One of which replaced my engagement ring (due to unforeseen allergies).

Now, GriffinsNestJewelry has a huge selection of jewelry from amazing beads, rings, necklaces, cuffs, and…. stones! I got my daughter a really cool quarts rock for Christmas- it’s neat! My sister had a bird ring, but… somehow, it ended up in my jewelry stash. Thank, Sis! Cooler yet, I got this neato skull bead I put on a skinny link chain for my sister for Christmas too!

Wednesday Wishlist: The Professional

June 12, 2013 at 8:04 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

When I was a kid, my dad and I had a weekly movie night thing. I’m sure my love of horror films comes from all this. Friday and Saturday nights, we’d sit on the couch, he’d fix us something or other, (remember, my dad was a terrible cook, except or all of 6 things he cooked really well) So, popcorn, trail mix, a can of mixed nuts he got at Blain’s Farm and Fleet. I vaguely remember us trying to bake cookies ONCE, and I remember being terrified when they started to burn and the oven spewed black smoke. The fire alarm and alarm system went off, and the fire department showed up. Anyway, as a kid, we watched Dracula, The Swamp Thing, Creep Show, Nosferatu, Frankinstein’s Monster, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jurassic Park, Jaws, just to name a few. One of my favorite movies, of all time, out of the thousands of movies I’ve watched in my life: The Professional. It has got to be in my top 10 (my list of favorites is in no real order, but it’s in the top 10).

Not only that, The Professional has a pretty awesome cast. Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and Natalie Portman. Throw Liam Neeson in there and the movie’s epicness could be fetal! 🙂 Anyway, I wanted to share my top picks of The Professional related Etsy items- Because it’s related to one of the most awesome movies ever, and, the items themselves are really amazing.

Feature Friday: SassyBelleWares

May 31, 2013 at 10:22 am (Etsy, Etsy D-Listers, Feature Friday)

Last Christmas, as a gift, I got a few things from SassyBelleWares. Most people don’t know this, but my hair is incredibly long. I don’t do a whole lot with it, except, pin it out of my face, leave it down, or throw it up into a sock bun. I’ve been pinning up and around and all over a lot since Christmas because of the awesome hair pins and clips I got from Sassy’s shop!

Here is one set that I have, and LOVE. My child takes off with these all the time, sticks them in her hair and proceeds to tell me “I don’t know where your flower pin went.” Because, I can’t see it sticking out of her hair, right? 🙂

Wednesday Wishlist: Rain

May 29, 2013 at 7:37 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

Lately, it’s been raining a whole ton. I hate it. Normally, I like rain, and non-destructive storms. However, our basement flooded, so I’m unhappy about that. All this rainy weather has inspired my Wednesday Wishlist for this week.

Feature Friday: AdornYou

April 8, 2013 at 1:01 am (Etsy, Feature Friday)

I had to find my MIL a gift for her birthday last year… no, year before. Apparently I am still on year 2012. I got a necklace for my MIL in 2011, just to clear that up! 🙂 Anyway, AdornYou has some pretty amazing stuff. I like to think the necklace I got MIL is her favorite piece of jewelry. It does seem to be the necklace she wears most. Here is a photo of it!

Bermuda Blue Cosmic Ring Necklace

Nice, right? Right! That is seriously one of my favorite necklaces, I wish I had gotten myself one! The ring is sooo pretty, and the necklace is gunmetal- another of my favorites!

Well, the second time that Adorn you has saved my butt for a gift was this past Christmas. My sister is generally easy to get gifts for. Jewelry usually makes her happy. Well, I couldn’t find anything I liked. By that I mean, I wanted to get my sister something that was something I would want her to show off and say “Megan gave me this!”, and be happy she told people, not run and hide when she told someone I got it. :] I don’t have a photo of the necklace, because… I didn’t get a photo of it before I gifted it. Whoops! Well, I have a stock photo. That’ll work! Sister’s is the same, only the little gem is a pearl and a black gemstone. It looked really cool. When I gave it to my sister, she opened it up, and put it right on. Success!

I did manage to get myself a bracelet. It’s pretty epic in my opinion. I don’t have a photo of it though. It’s the black gemstone and pearls, and it’s amazing. Yes, I need to get a photo.

AdornYou has tons of other items too, Earrings, Bracelets, Hair pins, and more!

You can find Adorn you on ETSY and FACEBOOK.
