FREE shipping from Silver Palette – stunning greeting cards February 8, 2010

There is only one word to truly describe the stunning embroidered cards by SilverPalette… “WOW!” And that’s just what your Valentine will say when he or she opens one this weekend.

This week only, Silver Palette is offering FREE SHIPPING on their amazing hand-stitched cards. These cards, in designs ranging from Valentine’s Day to baby showers to “thinking of you,” take three or more hours to make, and are truly works of art. You may just find one framed, hanging on the wall of the recipient’s home the next time you visit!

I suggest the “Romantic Hearts in Pink and Red Valentine” card pictured in this post. It is simply gorgeous — and just $4.50 with FREE shipping!

Adorable Valentine’s hair bows for girls January 20, 2010

Here’s a new Etsy seller you’ve got to check out — Two Nieces! Valentine’s Day is coming up, so now is the time to place your orders for hair bows for the occasion! These are sure to please any little girl.

These Froggy Heart Valentine Clips are $2.49/pair and they’re perfect for infant or baby-soft hair, and are adorable year-round. Add to your order the Conversation Hearts Valentine Boutique Bow for just $2.49 (see photo below), great for any hair type (you can choose they style of barrette), and your total including shipping is just $7.25!

As a courtesy to shoppers who live nearby her, Two Nieces offers free pick up or delivery in Little Elm, Frisco, The Colony (Texas)!

As for the name, “Two Nieces,” it stems from her source of inspiration — her two nieces. “Aunt Tina” said she’s the mom to some fabulous boys, but doesn’t have any girls of her own, so being the aunt to two little girls lets her partake in all things frilly, like hair bows.

If you haven’t yet received a true work of art in the mail, then you’re missing out! Check out up & coming artist Ann Williams, who “depicts hidden stories from off-the-beaten path.” Her work has been featured most recently at Fusion Home Fashion, Legacy Books, and other North Texas Locations.

So, how do you get that FREE photo note card I taunted you with? Easy! When you place your order for a set of Ann Williams’ hand-crafted, hand-signed photo greeting cards (6 for $20), you get a card FREE! The catch? This deal is only good through the end of November, so place your order before time slips away from you.

Don’t show up at the holiday gift exchange or next weekend’s holiday party without a hostess gift! And if you’re looking for a gift for that impossible-to-buy-for person, a box of art is the way go! Her designs range from the masculine So Co T-Bird to the touching Tin Heart (pictured here). Visit her site to see more.

Psst! Here’s a secret! The first 50 people at Etsy Dallas on November 21 get a goodie bag jammed with freebies, including one of Ann Williams’ hand-crafted, hand-signed photo greeting cards!
