Chocolate Day!

Today is Chocolate Day!!!! I know what you're thinking. "Isn't every day chocolate day?" or "Why the hell didn't anyone tell me it was chocolate day?!" Well, let me clear this up. Yes, my friends, everyday is indeed chocolate day. And I'm telling you now, so don't get so upset! 

It is specifically chocolate day for moi. I'm a recent resident to my area and haven't made many girlfriends to indulge with me, but I found one a few weeks ago and we are going on a chocolate date! Yippee! The place we are going makes THE BEST chocolates and chocolate ice cream, so I can't wait. 

In honor of my personal chocolate day, here is a tasty morsel for all you now hating me for making you crave ice cream. "Cocoa Buttons"! Unique little vintage button bobby pins in chocolate and gold tones! Grab these, a girlfriend, and a pint of decadent goodness and you are on track for your own 
Chocolate Day!

"Cocoa Buttons" In Shop

Pop Pop!

Just signed onto some teams today on Etsy. It's kinda fun actually! You play get-to-know-you games and find items in other shops that you would love. Plus, you get the benefit of having others look into your shop as well! It's a nice perspective to have, being in a community of sellers and buyers that are trying to look out for one another. It is also comforting to find other newbies in the forums that are just beginning their shops too. 

Oh, and here is another recent addition to my collection (technically they are all recent!) called "Isle of Capri". Poppy flowers make me feel happy and comfortable. I even have a painting of poppies in my living room that brightens up the place. When I saw this vintage gold pendant, I thought the perfect pairing would be a bright poppy fan. Makes me think of Rosemary Clooney's "Mambo Italiano" when I look at the finished fun!
