C is for Cottage

I love cottages! They are so sweet and homey and I dream of someday retiring with my hubby in a little cottage by the sea. But for now, I will admire some of the sweet cottages I found on Etsy.

This is such a charming little necklace from deciduoussoul. I love how she antiqued it to give it a beautiful distressed appearance. It is a bargain at $13.99!!

This appliqued scarf by syko has me wishing for cold weather! How adorable is the little house...it even has a house number. There are several variations in her shop, but this was my favorite!

Oh, how I wish I could shrink myself and disappear into this beach house box by The Glittered Nest! It is in my favorite color and I love the tiny flowers surrounding it. This one just might have to come home with me!!

Host an Online Jewelry Party...Earn FREE JEWELRY!

I am now offering online jewelry parties through my online shop Out of the Blue. What's an online jewelry party you might ask? Well, it's just like a traditional jewelry party you would host in your home, but much more convenient! Instead of worrying about cleaning your house, serving refreshments, and then worrying whether anyone will show up...have your friends and family shop online at their convenience. Here's how it works:

1. Contact me via email at jjscott@cableone.net and tell me when you would like to host your party. Parties run for 7 days, starting on a Monday and ending on a Sunday.

2. I will forward you an invitation by email. You can either print them out and pass them out to your friends...or even better just email it to everyone.

3. Your friends will shop at their convenience and enter your hostess code at checkout so that you receive credit for their purchases. Your guests will receive a free pair of earrings with their purchase, free gift wrapping, and an entry into a drawing for $25 worth of jewelry.

4. When your party week is over, you will receive a credit equal to 20% of the jewelry sales to spend as you like in my shop. You will also receive a free pair of earrings and an additional $5 in jewelry for each new party booked from your show.

I am so happy to be a member of Etsy Texas Crafters, an amazingly supportive group of Etsy sellers that call the Lone Star state their home! The first Monday of each month, we get together and help promote one another and have fantastic specials throughout our shops. You can find a list of this month's participants here...

My sale for this month is 25% off everything in my shop. To receive the discount, add items to your cart and checkout...but don't pay through Paypal until I send you a revised invoice. Come shop with E.T.C. for some Texas size deals!!
