Happy Saturday!

The Winner of the Vintage Rust giveaway is 

lucky #2!
Who said:
I LOVE all the items. And the prices are so reasonable. The owl earrings would be my fave because my DIL loves owls and I know she'd love these. I will definitely follow Keepin' it Thrify. I should have been following sooner since I check it out everyday. And as soon as I can get on a computer where I have access to FB I will definitely "like" Vintage Rust and pass the word. But in the meantime I am going to head over to Etsy and check out the shop.

Bonnie-- I will need you to email me your address so I can ship your necklace

Vintage Rust Etsy Necklace Giveaway

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm featuring a sweet friends Etsy shop, 
She makes lovely vintage inspired handmade jewelry.

Hi, I'm Kristina, owner of the Etsy shop Vintage Rust
Last christmas I was trying to think of something more personal to make my family for a gift besides the usual gift card. I thought that personalized jewelery would make a perfect gift. My family loved my jewelery so much that they suggested that I start selling it. That, combined with more compliments provided the inspiration that I needed to start my own etsy store! I started with vintage and steampunk pieces and have quickly taught myself how to do wire wrapping and now I am deep into making resin pieces, which I really enjoy. I hope you enjoy looking at my pieces and thank you!

Here are a few things you can find over at the Vintage Rust

My Easter Tree

Happy Monday!

I got a chance this weekend to help my mom decorate for Easter.
Well, we put together a Easter Tree.
I love how it turned out,
 and of course, all of our items we used came from the dollar store or Big Lots!
Take a look--

Easter Tree

Close up shot of the glitter Easter eggs, egg garland, bunnies on a stick.
We also made the bow, using Easter ribbon from the dollar tree.

For the bottom we wrapped yellow and egg decorated cellophane & tissue paper.
Tied it off with some yellow ribbon.

Do you decorate for Easter?
