Today only I'm having a 50% off sale on all vintage photos in my shop. I am trying to destash my studio to make room for stuff I use. If you purchase any of these please wait for an updated invoice from me before you pay. Thank you and HAPPY V-DAY or unhappy if you don't celebrate! LOL Thanks for your patronage!!!

I admit it, I'm a complete and total Etsy addict! Are there any support groups out there for my compulsion with Etsy????? ;) OK so during all the time I've spent on Etsy this week I found a few new favorite shops and I'd thought I'd share them with you!!! The photo above is from Tilesmile's shop. I adore these decorative tiles!! I'm totally hearting the YAYA tile!!! I need it for my studio but have spent too much this week so hopefully it will be there for a future purchase.
I also just received my new painting from EarthArt (see above) and I'm IN LOVE with it! I am currently collecting birds for my studio, all types, I love the cutesy birds I find all over Etsy, everyone seems to have them and they are usually in most of my art as well, not sure why, maybe another addiction on my part!!
Another total fave of mine is TeterDesigns!!! I now own 3 pairs of these Teter originals, the third being the Japanese Flowers you see above!!! You will not find a nicer seller out there, Mark is amazing to work with and is fast as well. He even sent me my earrings during a horrible ice storm he was in!! Kudos to Mark, check out his incredible shop! I will always be a repeat customer!!!
Another shop I found this week and purchased this pair of swirly hoop earrings from is LoopsDesigns, simply amazing!!!
OK last but not least check out MercersDaughter she has some beautiful little paintings as well as some adorable jeweled pieces, I am doing a trade with her now too!! So now you have a few more shops to check out in your spare time. If you're like me in your spare time you browse Etsy and that's what gets me in trouble!!! LOL
Well enjoy these new shops and send me some feedback about what you'd like me to write about. I need input people!!!! ;)
As always thanks for reading!! ;)

Well as some of you know I've been contemplating for over a year about getting a tattoo representing my daughter and for my love for her. I am THRILLED to say it hit me last night while in bed!!! She was just diagnosed with a Stills Murmur by her pediatrician the other day. It's nothing horrible or bad, nothing wrong with her heart or any cause for concern, I did some research and found out the other name for it. It is called the "musical heart", this soooo fits her!! She was dancing in my womb and has always been around music, this is the first baby I know who has had an iPod in her room since the day she was born. She dances to every type of music even in commercials, she definitely has a musical heart!! So this is the basis of my tat, I want the heart to be the main part of a body of a bird, coming from the back side of the bird will be musical bars with notes from the song "Miracle" by Celine Dion (this song is exactly how I feel about her), the notes and bars will flow into feathery swirls (tying into my love of swirls and my series Swirlyville). I want it to be soft and flowy!! I'm sooooooo excited about this and that the idea finally came to me. I tried drawing it out but the idea in my head and what's on paper aren't meshing so I'm going to go to the tattoo artists today and see if they can sketch it out for me. I'm going to put in on the inside of my left wrist, where my creativity flows from, I'm a lefty and she's my inspiration!!! So when I have the sketch I'll show ya and when I get the tatt I'll show you as well! I'm sooooooo very happy about it!!!!!
