wisps ~ gathering beauty

i wanted to share with you a beautiful etsy shop ... it is the shop of my friend Nancy,
called "wisps ~ gathering beauty" ... is that not the sweetest shop name? ... i love it!

Nancy has such a great eye for beauty ... paired with the most exquisite taste ... and
everything in her shop reflects these characteristics ... i have purchased several lovely
things from Nancy ... they are even prettier in person and were a joy to receive ...

the sweetest crocheted victorian bud vase filled with adorable millinery posies ...

isn't is darling? here is a little closer view ...

a set of dainty hand painted coffee cups ... there are three of them in real life ...

a stunning cluster of velvet strawberries ...

and a wee satin pillow sachet with the most darling ribbon flower trim ...

my most favorite beauty in Nancy's shop right now is a fabulous blue floral silk
pincushion ... oh, it is just gorgeous!!! take a look and see for yourself:

click here to visit Nancy's shop ... while you are there, be sure to bookmark her
site ... she has a shop update coming today, i believe ... her last update sold out
very quickly ... you don't want to miss out on her beautiful wisps ...

ps: please say a prayer for:

Hey Lori, love those beautiful little demitasse cups...so funny, that's the second time an item on my etsy favorites list has sold only to show up later on your blog! Last one was the gorgeous antique pink/blue pin cushion - we must have very similar tastes! The combination of soft pink, soft blue, and flowers gets me every time. Anyway, so glad they went to a good home :)

I'm totally loving that crocheted vase! And thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! ;)

LOL - yup, I've been "beachy" since I started blogging in 2006 (my first blog was beachyscapecodcupboard, but I had to close it down sadly -- it was getting spammed out of control -- even though I moderated comments, they were too creepy to sift through). Oh well. lol
