Introducing to you - Bungalow42 on Etsy

Hey you lovely readers.....Today I wanted to introduce you all to Connie from Bungalow42 on Etsy.

Her shop features very special jewelry pieces. She calls them "seriously whimsical adornments" and I can't find of a better way to describe these very special pieces of work. Like most Etsy sellers she started making them for family and friends. They have been her inspiration, guinea pigs and fan club and encouraged her to open an Etsy shop. 😊

Her "seriously whimsical adornments" pair silver findings, gemstones, seashells, pearls, vintage and handcrafted beads from around the world with delicate but sturdy plastic chain, silk thread or cord and waxed linen thread.  Weight and humor is a major focus in her work. She strives to create lightweight pieces that won't weigh you down but will hopefully make you smile.

This is her advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy.....Do the homework/research. Read the Etsy Success emails and other related documents. Join an Etsy Team.....They are the perfect opportunity to meet other similarly inclined folks to exchange ideas with.

So let me show you some of her lovely handmade pieces.

Jewel Tone Ridged Transparent Lampwork Bells

Kiwi Green Chartreuse and Orange Spiral Lampwork Pendant

Colorful Lightweight Aqua Tropical Bracelet with Coral Red Peruvian Fish 

Wasabi, Dark Teal and Avocado Retro Mod Flower Dangle Earrings

Black Anklet with Colorful Pearls and Open Artisan Spiral

Dark Blue Pearl Bracelet with Golden Lampwork

Red Half Circles with Pearl Earrings

Bright Green Curly Leaf Bracelet

Indigo and Green Hexagon Necklace

Pale Yellow Anklet with Pearls and Tangerine Drops

Real lovely handwork.....don't you agree??  The flower dangle earrings are my favourite and which one is yours ??

Hope you liked my blogpost for today.........Until next time.........Have a great day 😸

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Holiday Season

How how how.....I know lol.....Too soon for the holiday season.

But almost every Etsy shop is already preparing for the holiday season. And if they are not it's high time they get cracking. Cause it is said that most shops should take advantage of the slower summer months to start preparing for the holidays. And looking outside, I can say without a doubt that summer has ended. 😉

Generally the holiday season is considered to run from late November up to early Januari. It is the peak season for almost any kind of shop.

Although I am definately not a fan of the weather that comes with this season it does have some charm. There is a kind of magic in the air.....Gorgeous window displays....Glistening lights in the streets.....Family reunions.....glamorous gifts with ribbons.

Go on admit it I know you are looking forward to those things too.😊

So here are some lovely Holiday Season items I found on Etsy for you today.

I don't know how the weather is where you're at, but over here in Belgium it feels like autumn already. So I thought I would give you some fashion inspiration for the coming fall.

Found some real affordable items on Rosegal for you ladies.

Rosegal was started by a group of friends that share a deep passion for stunning clothing and fashion. They offer Free Shipping Worldwide. Now tell me does that not sound interesting?

They have sections for Women, Plus Size, Men, Shoes and Bags, Accessories, Home, Hair, Beauty, Sale and even a Halloween section. So if you're still on the lookout for a cute Halloween costume go ahaid and browse their website.

Now here is what I found for you today 😊

Plus Size Maxi Asymmetric Funnel Collar Hoodie for 17 €

Asymmetrical Tunic Hoodie for 15 €

Black Owl Sequined Crossbody Bag for 26.16 €

Alloy Owl Feather Drop Earrings for 1.74 €

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Lampwork beads

If you could name one thing you would always be happy with to get as a small gift.......What would it be? Some people would have to think about that question. Others like me would have their answer ready in a second.

Maybe you could guess what mine would be? It's not that hard cause I use them almost every day. Yes them so it's almost always more than one. And some of you might also know that I am quite addicted to them. 😀

Beads off course in all kinds of sizes and shapes. I already have a nice collection in my closet.......but there is always room for more 😏

Have you ever heard of lampwork beads? They are beads made of melted glass that is formed by blowing and shaping with tools. They require a lot of technique and some are really works of art.

Today I chose some lovely beads from Etsy shops to show to you.

Lampwork Bead Pair - Shimmer in pink. Lampwork glass beads

Lampwork Beads Saltwater Blue per bead

Large Hole Tribal Beads, Bead Set, Lampwork Beads

Metallic lampwork beads - set of streaky yellow mirror finish glass beads

Four Glass Beads - Heart shaped beads in Grey - Handmade Lampwork

Sapphire blue lampwork beads, glass bells 10mm, handmade flowers

Bright Lampwork Beads, Crystal Lampwork Beads, Lampwork Bead Set

Green Glittery Flower Lampwork Bead

Small Core Artisan Bead SRA Lampwork Beads BHB

4 Blue Lampwork Glass Beads 8 x 12 mm Rondelle Glass Beads

They all look wonderful don't you agree? If I would ever win the lottery I think I would have to restrain myself from buying too much of these. Like a kid in a candy shop 😎

Hope you enjoyed my pics and my blogpost for today.........Until next time.........Have a nice day

And by the way if you like my posts and want me to blabber a bit about a shop of yours for a bit of extra promotion - just let me know 😊

Fashion Set By Seadbeady (8)

We might not all like it that much.......But it"s a fact that fall is not that far away

There are some things that I like about fall. Like the beautiful colors. I also love using fall color combinations in my jewelry. Take for instance this Bargello necklace made with seed beads and Crazy Lace Agate gemstone beads.

But I am not a fan of the storms and colder weather. Are you ???? I can't see myself ever going on a winter holiday to the snow. No way that is not for me 😝

I suppose that is probably because my zodiac sign is Leo. Don't you just love the sun? No 😟

But maybe it would not be a bad thing to be prepared for that next season coming up.
The fashion set I put together for you this time started from the lovely knit dress in grey that I combined with lovely dark blues.

Bell Sleeve Drop Shoulder Heathered Knit Tee Dress for 19 €

Blue Non-slip Lace Over Knee Socks for 8.38 €

Margherita Burgener Flowers Earrings in Titanium, SIlver and Pearls for 550 €

3CTTW Marquise Blue Sapphire S Ring by PeermontSize 5 for 13 €

Helen Kaminski Elora Slouchy Hat for 66 €

Pre-owned Knit scarf for 80 €

Nine West Pom Pom Bag Charm for 9.22 €

My own Bracelet from Seadbeady on Etsy with NY Skyline for 40 €

Well what do you think? I know the earrings are a bit expensive 😏
But it's a start.........Hope you enjoyed my fashion set this time.........Until next time

Have a nice day

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - Socks

Don't you agree that people don't always talk about the little things. So today I wanted to start and make a change in that. I want to talk to you about socks 😏

Haha yes I know sounds a bit silly .....but they are important. And they can be so comfy and cosy especially on the somewhat colder days.

Imagine yourself in the evening on the sofa together with your beloved family ......when suddenly 😮 a draft. What do you do? You run to the bedroom to get a pair of comfy cosy socks. You see what I mean. And they have an advantage that's not to be neglected.......they absorbe the sweat 😁

The picture below is from the earliest known surviving pair of sock,excavated in Egypt. They date from 300-500. They had split toes so they could be used in sandals. I agree they look kinda funny.
