Lovely Finds: My Etsy Shop

My shop on etsy

debuted a few weeks ago,

and in spite of not finding time

to market it, stuff is beginning

to sell.

aurora borealis vintage crescent brooch – available

Confession:

selling vintage costume jewelry means

I can continue to scour tag sales

with added incentive.

vintage pearl collar necklace – available

vintage rhinestone brooch

My art has been sold

 via word of mouth and

a Chicagoland boutique.

Etsy may or may not be a good fit

for finding homes for my collages.

Osa on Zebra collage – available

Vintage book covers were my canvas

where layers of vintage text, illustrations,

acrylics, dupioni silk, muslin, and other

embellishments tell a story.

Each piece has an original pieced together

poem constructed with random text from the

book.

Help me, I love them all.

They’re vintage inspired yet modern.

Success in the marketplace

won’t change

how and why I create. 

one of the Big Hair collages – available

I create because it brings joy.

art can be fun – available

I create because it stretches me.

a collage inspired by faith – available

I create because I am called to.

a piece on a side table – available

I create to spread love.

And if the result pleases

someone else…

all photos mine

Well then,

I’d say that

constitutes

a bit of a

mind blowing

crazybeautiful

miracle.

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love the bling, especially on the tennis shoe. 🙂
    Your artwork is so beautiful and no matter what comes in life, you should always create for those very reasons. 🙂

    Hello gorgeous lady! Hope you're having a great weekend. Just finished work for the day, more to come tomorrow… weekend working has got to stop soon, it's getting to me.

    Love to end my day here and get my fix of lovely. I'm so pleased your shop items have started to sell! They're all gorgeous!

    Just seen the additional mixed media pieces you've added to your shop, I LOVE them! All of them! If I had the spare cash, I would buy them all and create a gallery wall of Michele's Lovely! The Big Hair collages are awesome! "I still feel like it needs something" – HA! And the KINGBIRD and TURQUOISE ones are so uplifting. LOVE your creations, they are inspired.

    Love to you!
