the sin of coveting

Oh. oh. oh. The things we don't need - but we
just have to get our little, greedy paws on.
If you're an avid Etsy browser, I know you've felt it.
You're simply bored after a long day at work
Maybe you've just watched the latest episode of "Mad Men"
or a classic on AMC. Like an African cat, you're on the hunt
for treasure - that dress you saw January Jones sporting -
that hat that Katherine Hepburn had on in the last scene.

You begin your search with a simple word into the Etsy search engine.

Each world opens a gateway to infinite possibilities 
You find yourself drowning in a sea of frocks and
frills. Of lace and velvet. Of Ruffle and buttons.

That's not define enough. You're sorting through
1980s clothing when you'd rather be in the 1930s.

Define your decade.
00s.   20s.   30s.   40s.   50s.   60s.   70s.   80s.

Still, there are too many choices.
narrow it down by color.

Is that her?
Is that the one you were dreaming of?
It is.

The one thing that makes your heart stand still.

Without hesitation you favorite her.
You click "ADD TO CART".
You go to check out.
You hesitate.
Your finger itches... you want to buy her.

But, do you?
what holds you back?

                                                      .Tell me something. 

I have a fairly well stocked selection - and I hope to be
adding more in by the end of the week - so tell me.
Do you covet... do you want something in my store but
mayhaps your funds are low - maybe your conscience
keeps you from making the commitment?

If you're like me - you have 17 pages of goodies that
you want but 'splurging' fund enough for one or two!

I love give away's and deals just as much as the next
fashionista. SO I'm running two giveaways right now
 each of them for a store credit.

fifty bucks
For this giveaway simply find that item in my store
that sweeps your heart off of it's feet. For me it was
the dress pictured to the left *sigh* oh how I loved
thee. Maybe that item has already  sold but you want
to tell me about it anyway.

Now go below this post and comment. Tell me what it is
and  why it has to be yours!

After you do that just 'follow' this blog and link it to your friends -
everyone loves a chance to win!

A random drawing will determine the winner

Spring Fling - a new romance

Spring. Really?

Are you just around the corner?
Are you really about to bring back the flowers?

Oh. How we've missed thee.

To celebrate your impending, triumphant return, I've
complied a mash up of my favorite, floral printed items
from my little ole etsy shop. I hope they are a fitting
offering to you, Goddess of daisys and daffodils.

so many beautiful things!

*SOLD* That little two piece number? Here!
The bag? Click!
Cream colored, darling sweater? There!
That sweet, fluffy, nightgown? Mhm
That spring fling, skirt? Still for sale!

Thanks for looking - keep checking back!
