Pretty Mannequin...with a lot going on and a sale in my Etsy Shop!!

In between stuffing the turkey and making pies, I began creating this pretty girl.  She is going in my new booth at Divine Finds and I can hardly wait to show her off.
She's got a lot going on.  First a tutu, and the top portion salvaged from a vintage bridal gown, pearls, greenery, ornaments, bling stuff, tiny white lights and Jeanne d'Arc Angel Wings that can be found here!

She's taking center stage...

She's too sexy and she knows it....
Starting now I am having a sale in my Etsy Shop.  Use promo code JEANNEDARC and receive $10.00 off your purchases. 

I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and may you enjoy all the festivities with family and friends.

Linen and Lace...

It's been awhile since I did a post and I almost didn't write one today.  My heart, like so many of you and others, is broken over Paris.  God Bless the people of Paris.

You know I love blogging but there are times when it's hard to come up with something to talk about.  I've been busy with my etsy shop and I'm always excited to tell you what's new.  As a Jeanne d'Arc seller I'm always amazed at just how lovely their products are and how they just keep getting prettier!

This linen and lace tunic arrived this week and I was blown away by it's delicate loveliness.  

It's all in the details. If you love vintage laces and embroidery and delicate touches, you can't help but fall in love with it.

 My mannequin was a little too full on the bottom so the small fit a little snug.  But you can see the lovely front details.
  I wish I could tell you the bloggers that are wearing this, but I need to get their permission first.  You'll find it in my Etsy Shop!
I have three left.  Size small, large and XXL.

Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine has features the angel wings, which accounts for the demand.  I only have one pair of the large and I'm expecting the Xlarge ones this week. These are handmade in Denmark and they are running out fast.  They will also be available in my etsy shop.

Okay, that's it for now.  I'm planning on showing you some of my Christmas decor projects soon.

Angel Wings for the Holidays, Seawashed Living and the Giveaway Winner...

Hello Everyone!  The skies are blue and the air is crisp here on the Carolina Coast...which means it's time to start thinking about Holiday Decorating!!!!

The first thing that I do is start looking for ideas on your blogs, perusing the magazines and pinterest and ooohing and ahhhing over all the talent that's out there.  

But one thing that I know for sure is that Angel Wings are on my list for my Holiday decor.  Since I sell Jeanne d'Arc's handmade vintage lace angel wings, then the choice for me is simple.  Here are a few ways that I have embellished them...

Beads, lace rosettes, ornaments or anything that strikes your fancy will dress them up.

Pin a brooch on the wings for some extra bling.

Add ornaments, ribbon, bits of this and that.

 I want to show you these lovely rosary beads from Kerrie at Sea Cottage/Sea Washed Living.  Kerrie is an artist and a very lovely person who is fortunate enough to live by the sea. Which is what inspires her soft, lovely style.  The rosary beads are white wash painted and Kerrie describes them as "hand-painted in a patina as if tossed and turned by the waves of the ocean deep."
They are also embellished with a lovely wooden cross, soft ribbon and a lovely charm.  I love them Kerrie!!!
 Be sure and visit Kerrie's blog to see more of her soft, soothing, sea washed style.  You'll love her home, her poetic words and her art!
You can also find more of Kerrie's art and beautiful things for sale in her etsy shop!
See how lovely they look with the angel wings.....

The winner of the Jeanne d'Arc vintage lace shoulder bag is
Diana, Nana Diana take a Break.  Congratulations Diana.  It will be in your hands in a few days.  Thanks to all of you who commented and stay tuned for another giveaway soon!
