"The Seven Days of Valentine's:" ~Where Etsy Steps in!~ {+ Giveaway!!}



My Dear Readers,

'Tis the long awaited day at last! The time when the "Etsy" part of my title at last begins to come into play..yes, that's right, ladies:

The Seven Days of Valentine's: Day Three
{Interview with Miss Laura of the Etsy shoppe, "Along For the Ride!"}

Lucia:  Hello, Miss Laura! Thank you so much, once more, for taking the time to answer these questions, *and* for donating such a lovely item for the giveaway. :) Would you tell us a bit about what got you into Etsy, and how long you've been there?

When I started my blog, I got introduced to the handmade community. I had been making jewelry for quite a while, but can only wear so much of it myself! I decided to start my Etsy shop as a way to share my love for jewelry and accessories with others. I've been actively selling items since the summer.

Peony Hair Pin- Ivory
{Some of the items available in her shoppe are these gorgeouse peony hair pins..}
::Buy this now::


Lucia: What sorts of things do you *most* enjoy making, for your shop, or otherwise?

My favorite thing to make is beaded jewelry. I love turning seemingly separate things (beads, wire, chain) into something beautiful.

Rosette Pendant Necklace- Robin's Egg
{Darlingly vintage rosette necklaces!}
::Buy this one now::



Lucia: Where do you see yourself and your shop in five years?

Oh gosh, in 5 years I hope to be a mommy. I want nothing more than to raise a family with my husband. As far as my shop, I hope I'm still creating and sharing my work with others. Hopefully my shop will only continue to grow.

Bias Tape Rosette Earrings- Rose
{Lovely rosette earrings..I love these little guys!!}
::Buy this pair now::

Lucia: Awwe..isn't that great, girls? <3 Laura, for the present, is there another area of creativity that you would someday like to make into a shop, as well?

I'm slowly but surely working on my sewing skills. I hope to feature more hand sewn items soon!

~*~

..Thank you so much for your time, Laura! Your shop is simply dee-lightful {isn't it??}! And now..because Miss Laura is also very sweet, :) she has agreed to sponsor a giveaway for my little heartsy event!:

Bias Tape Rosette Earrings- Baby Blue

..No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. ;) This exquisite pair of baby blue rosette earrings might be your's next week! Aren't they so adorable and perfectly shabby chic? I would love to adorn my ears with such prettiness..when I get around to getting them pierced, that is..

L.O.V.E.
