How about a Monday Marketplace?

OK, so I have this little idea, and we all know, especially my husband, that my ideas are sometimes time consuming, cost some money, and require heavy lifting...but not this one. 

If you're like me, you like to buy from your blog friends on Etsy, and also like to share the fun of finding those wonderful vintage items and amazing creations. But it's hard knowing what everyone has in their stores. Sometimes we miss great items that we might be looking for, unless the blog author actually does a post on a particular item.

So, here's my idea...

I've been thinking of a weekly venue to share some of our Etsy and Online Store products that we would like to showcase. So many of us in blogland have Etsy Shops and/or Online Stores. How about a way to focus on one or two items per week that we have for sale? So many linky parties ask that Etsy items or stores not be linked up. But how about a party that focuses just on that concept? An online marketplace where we could all link up; a way to share with everyone our creations and products.

So, starting this Monday, February 27, I will be hosting a weekly linky party for anyone that sells or has purchased a wonderful product. This link can be to a specific product you sell or even something you've purchased. You may link to a specific blog post, or Etsy item. I'm asking that you NOT just link to your Etsy Shop or Store, but to have a link to a particular item. Then if people want to browse your shop they can, but I want this to be focused on "items" and inspiration, not stores. This is to showcase  individual sellers and their products. And as much as we love the big online companies, this is not about those products...just individual Etsy Shops and Online Boutiques.

This coming Monday, (I'll post a linky sometime mid-day on Monday) let's say you link up one or two items from your shop. These can be handmade items or vintage items. Depending on your interest and participation, I might have linky "catagories" for products, but for now let's just see about a turnout.

so, how about it...?
Let me know if you're interested
 or think this might be a fun way to shop!

New Vintage in the Petite Boutique

Recently I found some wonderful old rosary crucifixes and religious medals, so with a few added charms and tags, I wanted to share the "new" vintage one-of-a-kind pendant necklaces that are in my Etsy Shopthe Petite Boutique.

I've also added a new chain to these pieces; 
a small link, but with a nice weight.
Love the antiqued brass.

One of the great things about these pendant clasps
 is that you can add on or remove the individual pieces. 
That way if you have some personal charms or pendants
they can be worn with the rest.

I also can put together a special pendant 
with your choice of elements,
just email me for info.

I'll be making more of these,
 just wanted to get these first few listed.

Seeing this pretty girl wearing my very first necklace listed on Etsy,
was what inspired me to make some pieces with a new look.

Thanks,  Anne...

(isn't she cute?)

Have a Heart...

Just thought I'd share some "sweet" hearts that I've found on Etsy.

Theresa from the Old White House
Me and You stuffed heart
(one of these came to live at my house)

(I have one of Rebecca's art journals, they are a work of art!)

has these wonderful script fabric hearts

Ann from On Sutton Place created a wonderful primitive
heart pillow made from an old quilt top.

 Rhonda from a Little Bit French

from the Old Willow

And one of my Vintage Key Necklaces
with a Celtic Heart and Crown

Have a great weekend warm-up for Valentine's Day!

Something New for 2012

Sometimes, do you feel like you could use a little help?

You're tired of feeling on your own out in the world?

 That you could use a partner?

someone to work with

Maybe be a part of the team?

Find someone who will support you and has your back

Have some like minded pals

That know how to put your best foot forward

Maybe someone who could speak up for you

To get some of your best kept assets out there for the public to see.

Someone who's not afraid to toot your horn for you 

that could partner up with you to get the job done

well, you've come to the right place...

OK, I'm not crazy, just wanted a fun way to tell you that 
Common Ground and yours truly 
will now be available for advertising and sponsorships!

I'll be happy to work with you to give your blog and online shop
or Etsy store some well deserved attention!
