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!

So… Valentine’s Day is NEXT WEEK. Do you have something thoughtful for your Valentine? If not, do you have time to get that shopping done? Here’s a tip to make your shopping so much easier!

James Avery, one of my favorite jewelers based out of Kerrville, TX, is offering a FREE overnight shipping upgrade for orders placed by noon CST on Thursday, February 11th. His jewelry is of the highest quality and beautifully made. I’ve been wearing it for 20 years now, and pieces I received way back then still look brand new. Simply choose “Overnight PM” shipping then enter code NEXTDAY at checkout!

There’s something for every budget in the James Avery Valentine’s Day Catalog, but one piece that grabbed at my heartstrings is this gorgeous heart strings pendant.  It is 1″ long and would float beautifully along a simple chain necklace. It reminds me of the floating heart my parents gave me when I was a little girl.

If you have time to get to a store, visit a James Avery location near you.

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.
