I had lots of fun at the Redwood Meadows craft sale on the weekend, and although it was not quite as busy as I would have liked to to be, I did manage to sell several items to wonderful new owners! I still have a few pieces left, which is great news for all of you, as I am spending the next few days listing items in my Etsy shop, and preparing for my Black Friday weekend sale. I will have 10 % off everything in my shop from this Friday Nov. 25- Monday Nov. 28. However for you, my loyal readers...you will have the opportunity to get 15 % off! Stay tuned for the special coupon code that I will give you later this week, that will enable you to get in on that secret discount!
As for now...here is one of those pieces that I just listed in my shop!
When I found this vintage Chauffeur ID tag, I knew that it
would make a fabulous Christmas gift for one of the many Moms that spend their
time chauffeuring their kids around! So in honor of Mom, I added some
bling and sparkle...but not too much that she could not wear it with her
everyday jeans and T-shirt! The sparkly bits consist of modern cut
glass and Swarovski crystals. The tag is from British Columbia, Canada,
and has the year 1968 engraved on it. I also added chrysoprase and
labrodorite stones. Apparently Labradorite is a protective and
grounding stone that provides relief from stress...and what Mom doesn't
have a bit of stress in her life! As for the stone chrysoprase, it is
said to help one to focus, and see problems clearly.... again
....perfect for Moms! I also added vintage brass buttons including
one that is from the Royal Military College of Canada, a vintage forest
green tassel, and a vintage skeleton key from England.
