Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend.  

I was a busy beaver but did manage a little time outdoors enjoying the weather.  One of the big task on my to-do list was adding new items to the ConfettiStyle Etsy Shop.  I added over 50 new vintage decor and jewelry items and still have more to add, including some vintage holiday pieces.

If you’ve never been to my Etsy shop and are wondering what types of items I sell, let me tell you about the shop.  I opened my Etsy shop a few years ago and really focused on selling pieces that I loved and would decorate my own home with.  I am an avid flea market shopper and the shop was a great way for me to make some of what I find available to you.  There are several different categories of items in the shop but you’ll find milk glass and ironstone pieces, brass decor and lots of unique vintage items. Back in 2012 I started making vintage jewelry and add my handcrafted jewelry to the shop.  2012 was also the year when my jewelry was selected as an editors’ pick by Country Living Magazine and was featured in the Dec/Jan 2012 issue.

Over the years I’ve added additional handcrafted pieces including designer clipboards which have been very popular.  I have a new collection of clipboards that will be available in the shop soon.

So all in all, my Etsy shop is an extension of my passion for vintage decor, jewelry and my love of handcrafting!  Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items you’ll find in the shop…

And in case you missed it, I’ve decided to expand my shop presence and begin selling vintage finds on Instagram in a new shop called The Vintage Box.  This has been something I’ve thought about for almost a year and I’m excited to launch the shop later this month.

The Instagram shop will have a more focused product offering and I’ll also be selling vintage jewelry as well.  I’m still nailing down the details of the sales so follow along here to be the first to know when the shop opens.

You never know what treasures are in the box!

One of the good things about having more than one passion is that you stay busy. With three maybe four things I’m really passionate about,  you can only imagine how busy I’ve been since the new year.

One is good but two is better.  That’s my philosophy when it comes to jewelry.  I love buying it, wearing it and even decorating with it.  Just when I thought I might go a few months without buying a new piece of jewelry I did some research on the 2014 Jewelry Trends and now I’ve got the buying bug again.  Take a look at what’s going to be hot for 2014 and let me know what your favorite trend is.

Beautiful Beads and Crystals (yes, please)

   2d40a122535fde1a5f35cb33e41c57ff

Pearls and More Pearls (I’m gonna love this trend)

Retro Watches (really sexy in by book)

Message and Slogan Necklaces (kinda middle school to me but could be cool)

Tassels (the trend continues and is one of my faves)

p.s.  In addition to the vintage tassel jewelry you can find in my Etsy shop, I’m working on a new handcrafted tassel y collection so stay tuned

Zodiac Signs (a great way to make a signature statement)

Pins and Brooches (I’ve collected these for a long time and am going to love wearing them)

Malachite and Beads, Beads, Beads (this is one of my go-to colors for spring so I’ll be sporting this trend)

When it comes to Christmas décor, I’m one of those people who likes to change it up every year and create a new look for my décor.  I don’t go out and buy all new holiday decorations but I do buy (or diy) a few new ornaments, ribbon and gift wrap to fit the theme I want to create.  I also try to use my existing ornaments in cycles so I’m not using the same pieces every year.

When it comes to Christmas décor there are many styles to love.

Traditional

Modern

Colorful

Classic

Country

Simple

ec5f3c97155d178665e0943f6c19a3b6

And the list goes on and on!

Typically in January of each year I begin thinking about what I want my Christmas décor to look like.  Yes I know this sounds crazy but the timing also coincides with the January Gift and Home Furnishings market that takes place in Atlanta in January.  During the market all the seasonal vendors showcase the new looks and trends for the coming Christmas season.  Naturally seeing 100’s of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, beautiful ribbon and every ornament under the sun sparks my creativity.

My holiday decorating theme this year started with this wrapping paper…..

ConfettiStyle Christmas Theme 2013-2

and next came this ribbon that I found at a wholesale shop here in Atlanta…..

ConfettiStyle Christmas Theme 2013-1

Once I had these items, all the pieces of my décor fell into place.

Here’s a sneak peek at my décor for Christmas décor theme for 2013!

Colors:  red, antique gold, shades of green and a touch of silver

Materials:  Burlap, satin, colored glass and mercury glass

Style:  Modern Classic

There will also be lots of texture and of beautiful gift wrap and package embellishments for the gifts.

ConfettiStyle Christmas Theme 2013-3
{p.s.  those Christmas tree chalkboard tags were made by me and are available in my Etsy Shop.}

Decorating a my house goes into full swing this weekend and I’ll be sure to share the completed look when we’re done.

Cheers!
