Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!

Another one of the forcasted trends reported  in From Etsy's Merchandising Desk: October's Delights is Personalization: Names, initials, symbols, zodiacs, monograms, quotes, phrases, fingerprints, photographs, portraits, and numbers.  So let's take a look at some of the offerings we can find on Etsy that fit this theme!
Personalized tattoo heart fascinator true love hat - Custom made with your choice of message or name by Janine Basil  ****What a great way to say I love you!*****

Retro inspired fascinator with retro tattoo theme! Wonderful hat for lots of occasions, but best for showing your loved one your true feelings!  The heart is machine embroidered from a design by me! I can change the message on the heart, but due to the size then obviously it's limited to around 11-13 characters. Message me and we can see what's possible!  The straw fascinator base is 15cm/6inches across and attached is a small plastic comb to hold it in the hair.

Customized Wedding Stamp Keepsake Ornament, Personalized by Ogden Arthaus

*****This is lovely and what a wonderful keepsake for newlyweds!*****
Remember The Day with this beautiful keepsake ornament, personalized with the bride and groom's first names and the date of the wedding on one side and the LOVE Stamp on the other. Truly a one of a kind gift that will become a treasured heirloom. The floral design featured on this stamp is a detail from a watercolor created by the late Dorothy Maienschein, an employee of Hallmark Cards, Inc. Introduced as a Mother’s Day card in 1939, Hallmark reissued the design as a friendship card in 1941. Since Hallmark began tracking sales in 1942, almost 30 million cards with this pansy cart design have been purchased—more than any card in history. The word “LOVE” adorns the left side of the stamp. (From the USPS Postal News)  I have encased the stamp in glass utilizing the Tiffany style-copper foil method of stained glass. I have added a swirl of recycled copper wire which holds a little silver string for hanging. Finally, the entire piece has been treated with an antique copper patina. This little art treasure can be used to adorn your Christmas tree, a gift or just to hang up and be lovely; but, it was not designed to be worn as jewelry. 
P E R S O N A L I Z A T I O N:
When placing your order - in the "Note to Seller" section at checkout - please include the following pieces of information:
Bride' first name
Groom's first name
Date of Wedding

Custom Hand Stamped Vintage Style Medallions by Zur Designs

Well, I got a hand stamping kit for my birthday and am having so much fun with it! These brass oval tags can be stamped with inspirational messages, names,or personalized in any way. Each tag is surrounded by a cluster of bright flowers and beads and hung on an antiqued brass 16 inch chain. They look good by themselves or layered with other necklaces.
The ones I have in stock right now are:
JOY--surrounded by pink flowers; sure to bring joy to you every day
LOVE--featured swarovski crystals and pearls; make someone you love really happy...even if it's yourself!
SEEK--a great inspirational message for everyone surrounded by a garden of flowers in orange and turquoise
MEH--hehe I love this word...and sometimes it just says it all; features a black webbed jasper rondelle and pretty green flowers
The size of the tag accommodates three to four letter words best. Just convo me on what you want your charm to say and preferred color palette.
If you are giving them for gifts, each will come beautifully packaged and ready for giving. And remember, there is always FREE SHIPPING at Zur Designs!!
