All A Bride Could Ever Want…

Etsy treasuries are great to do some convenient - everyday - window shopping. If you are looking for a gift for a very special someone, but don’t really know what exactly to get, Etsy treasuries will for sure get you inspired. You can do boutique shopping at your pace and convenience without the hassle of having to drive from A to B to C, hunting for parking spots, feeding meters, rushing after work, hurting feet, … – instead, you sit on your couch, glass of wine in hand, feet up, take a look at unique finds and let inspiration come to you. Sounds pretty relaxing, doesn’t it?!?!

Now, the more extreme your constraints or shopping needs are, the more Etsy can bring relieve. Take Weddings and stressed out brides for example. Brides usually have so many things on their list and way too little time to get everything done at an enjoyable pace. Etsy and it’s wedding treasuries might actually be their shopping heaven.  So many unique, customizable, color coordinated, personalizable,… goodies that you can look at in such a short period of time while not even having to leave the house. You can take time to think, don’t need to decide right away – after all, you can come back ANY time. No wonder so many brides already shop at Etsy!…

Check this one out for example:

A glance at 16 boutiques in less than a minute (aka “convenience speed shopping”…). Relaxed yet??…

“How Do You Even Choose?”

That’s what I was asking myself earlier, when I was trying to pick one – or maybe two… – Etsy treasuries that my lucky elephants were lucky enough to be part of. I thought, that it would be fun to not only show off my picks and favorites of other artisan’s creations, but also the picks of fellow Etsians, who included my elephants in their treasuries.

Now, guess what I found out while I was conducting a quick “lucky elephant Etsy search”!!?!! I discovered, that my cute, little silver friends have been showcased in a total of soaring 232 (yep, two hundred thirty two!!!…) treasuries up to this day!!! I had no idea!! And, would probably never have found out if it weren’t for EtsyLove…

See now, why choosing just a selected few, wasn’t the easiest task??? But {woot woot} I did it!!!!! And, without further ado, my selected few!…

For more details, please click on the images and you will get transferred over to Etsy! Happy browsing!!

I just wanted to make one yesterday, but ended up making 3… Thought I share them with you, so you get a glimpse at all the amazing treasures you can unearth if you take a little bit of time to browse and search. Try it and you’ll see how much fun it is!!

Everyday Vintage

I found these absolutely stunning, quarter size rhinestone buttons the other day and bought them as an alternative closure for my vintage wedding line. When a new shipment of perfectly soft nude leather arrived at my door step, I thought, mmmm, why not try to make an everyday vintage wrap and use the new rhinestone button for it… So, here you go, the newest addition to my lucky elephant collection: Everyday Vintage Triple Wrap…

I don’t have the pretty dress yet, but I’m wearing mine with an all white outfit and am loving it!!! Think I found a new summer favorite…

Mix and Match Bridesmaids

There’s weddings that match and then there’s weddings that don’t. Personally, I have a thing for the one’s that don’t. Mixing and matching of styles and colors, shoes and dresses, accessories and flowers, is such a great and fun way to create weddings that are not only very personal and sort of intimate, but also truly unique and one-of-a-kind. Not to mention entertaining! Don’t know about you, but I am always amazed by how incredibly creative some people are in terms of expressing their own personality in every little detail of their wedding. A rainbow of rubber boots, unusual dresses and shoes, one-of-a-kind necklaces & bracelets, stylish belts, a potpourri of flowers, handcrafted clutches,… – everything designed to allow us a glimpse at the personality of bride and groom without even knowing them, mixed and matched to perfection! What’s not to love?!?!

And, speaking of one-of-a-kind jewelry, there’s, of course, a lucky elephant bracelet for every color …

Happy mixing and matching!
