Cyber Monday Sale Feature #9

It's Cyber Monday and our one-and-only sale!!  After you finish putting us to work with all your orders on candles check out these shops and their deals:

If you don't see these pictures in the shop I probably bought them because they are my favorite!  But don't worry, she has many many delightful pieces.  I love sterling silver and I can't afford a diamond so a Cubic Zorcina is the next best thing!  She describes her shop as handcrafted metalsmithed and gemstone jewelry for the modern woman. (Hey I think I'm modern lady!)  Another perk is she uses only 100% recycled sterling, fine silver, Argentium or 14k gold-filled.  Take advantage of her Cyber Monday deal today of 10% off the entire shop (except the gift certificate and upgraded shipping), as well as Free Worldwide Shipping.

Handcrafted baskets are woven for using in the home as decor or as useful vessels for the kitchen, bathroom, or any other rooms to hold a multitude of items.  10% off the entire shop through Tuesday (11/30) using coupon BFCMsale.

This is another absolute favorite shop I just fell in love with.  A French artist who loves to paint femininity through it's strength, beauty and dreams.  These are absolutely great gifts for all women.  She has original prints and art on items such as jewelry, boxes and journals. I particularly adore the prints on the tea boxes, bookmarks and candle holders (you know I love candle holders!).  Today midnight is the last day to get 20% off the entire store.

What's in your backyard?

I use to live in a quaint beach community popular with manhattan-nites during the summer.  Every time I tell people I was raised four blocks from the beach and boardwalk most say "you probably went to the beach everyday."  Like most people I didn't take advantage of much of the splendor that was right in my backyard as I got older and life got busier. 

I'm afraid to admit it but I think like many New Yorkers,  I haven't even been to the Statue of Liberty which is only 20 miles from me.

Now I live next to a park literally in my backyard.   I walked out this morning for a brisk walk, to find some pine cones and take in the beauty of fall.  Although I didn't find not one pine tree and I kept tripping because I was falling in love with the sights surrounding me.   I used to think scenic pics were a waste of film if a person wasn't in it.  How wrong was I!  Taking pics of vacation spots are always nice but I come to appreciate what I have right in my backyard.

What's in your backyard?
