Glorious Sunflowers

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do.
Helen Keller

I have always been in awe of these regal beauties: standing tall, heads held high as if they are proud to exist. What a glorious sight, their bright, golden yellow blossoms against the rich, blue skies! No wonder they are proud!

Today's Shop of the Day, GrapeVineCeramicsGft: , has some stunning Sunflower gifts. Eye catching indeed, in their golden yellows and deep cobalt blues! Let's take a look!

The perfect size for that handful of Dandelions your toddler picked for you!
What a cutie! The vase and the toddler too of course!

A Basket of Beauty for sure!
I can see them as a center piece resting on candle sticks of different heights; can't you?

Hang them on your tree in December and in your window the rest of the year!
Have that bright, sunny mood all year!

Even weeds would look beautiful in this stunning piece!
I don't think anyone would be looking at what it was holding; do you?

  GrapeVineCeramicsGft: , has other wonderful gifts too ranging from buttons, to keepsake boxes, to figurines! All  handmade; all beautiful! A visit to their Etsy shop is a MUST!

Not Your Average Button!

Ok call me old, but I can remember when picking out the buttons for your new handmade dress was a big thing! I recall how exciting it was to look at all the shapes and sizes and hoping Mom would let me splurge just a bit for the cute little animal shaped ones.
Our shop of the day: Melissa Choroszewska Ceramics ,, would certainly be the place I would shop for my buttons! And I promise you these are NOT your Grandmother's buttons; they are handmade from porcelain clay and hand painted.
Feast your eyes of these handmade wonders!

Made with love and filled with fun!
Can't you just see these sweet little hearts on your little girl's summer dresses?

Now, these would be perfect for your toddler's overhaul straps, wouldn't they?
Colorful and bright; just as the shining star in your life should be!

Can't you just see these little dainty butterflies flitting up the front of a sweet little Sunday dress?
How charming!

 These delicate heart buttons would be absolutely beautiful on a mint green sundress,
 don't you think?

If you are a seamstress, a knitter, or a crafter, you must treat yourself to a visit to Melissa's Shop, . Beautiful buttons add the finishing touch; the icing on the cake!

Have Bag Will Travel!

Summer is upon us! With it's arrival, we will travel. When we travel, we make memories. When we make memories, we take pictures! Today's "Shop of the Day" has something for the photographer in all of us! SizzleStrapz, , is just the place you need to visit before you take your camera on vacation. This shop is packed with the most amazing camera straps and bags! They are not only bold and stylish but more importantly offer a ton of protection for your most precious memory saver, the camera! Let me show you what I mean!





This bag is large with custom opportunities, designed for carrying DSLR a camera, 2-4 other lenses and other items including an external flash, cell phone/batteries etc and comes with a top ZIPPER under the flap enclosure (wow) to protect your investment

*There are 2 side pockets on each side that can carry lens caps, batteries, memory cards among other things. There is 1 large pocket in the front (in the body of the bag).

The exterior fabric (heavy canvas or polyester) is treated and is water repellant.
The base includes a stiff plastic board and is well padded
The bag is internally padded on all sides.

I am in awe of all the customization Sizzle Strapz has to offer you!

**Complimentary Customization**:

1. If you need the inside lining to be of another color rather than the standard black, please include that in the “note from buyer” or just convo us and mention the color you need (Ex: Purple, Orange, Wine, etc)

2. If you need 4 lens pockets instead of the standard 2 please include that in the “note from buyer” or just convo us.
