So, where did all this sparkly inspiration come from?

The owner of LittleMsSparkle is mother of twin girls and she was completely inspired by them! No matter the circumstance, she always wanted them to look adorable. The owner started getting compliments on their outfits.and the next thing she knew, the praises and questions became orders. And then reorders!

Their regal princess crown sweatshirt!

Dressing her children in handmade sparkly rhinestone clothing started as fun, and then became a hobby – and later it turned into her business and became a true passion. The owner sells both on and off line, but only now has she decided to join the ranks of the Etsy community.

Sparkly and cute, I love this bedazzled rainbow tank top!
 
 Future plans for LittleMsSparkle includes a brick and motor shop located in Long Island, New York. They also have plans to hire some staff in the coming months to help the owner with marketing and order fulfillment!

Amazing Antique Goods on Etsy from TheIDConnection!

Are you a fan of antique goods? Are you always hunting for the perfect vintage item that has always alluded you?

Then I recommend checking out our Etsy shop of the day, TheIDConnection!

Meet the owners, Ronald and Monica!
What inspires this massive, amazing antique shop? According to Monica and Ronald, it's the hunt! They've been collecting antiques since the 1980's in Ohio, California, Florida, New Mexico and Texas. 

One of their gorgeous vintage jewelry pieces - this is an antique 1930's Victorian brooch!

 In the late 1990's eBay was their first online sales venue. It provided them with a
real "education" to the online world of selling, tuition paid for with eBay fees, charge backs and wonderful world of Ebay.

My personal favorite item from this shop - this AMAZING hand carved 1800's French wooden head and footboard!

Initially, when TheIDConnection was created, Monica was making lanyards with junk jewelry and she upcycled them. She also loves antiques and the thrill of the hunt!

Looking for that perfect little black dress? Check out their 1980's Karen Okada Dress!


A captivating oil on canvas vintage painting!

In addition to Etsy, they run an estate sale sompany. This goes hand & hand with Etsy - they want to promote and continue to grow their shop!

Leather Canvas Bags & Accessories from Ruth Kraus on Etsy!

Run by Ruth and Avi from Kerkur, Israel, this Etsy shop is a true testament to the uniqueness and sheer eloquence of handmade goods. The exquisite leather canvas bags and backpacks rank among some of my favorite items from their shop.

Take a peek at Ruth and Avi's workshop!

Some of the tools they use to create their amazing goods.

A few of their newly created leather hip bags!

Ruth was introduced to leather was years ago when she was traveling in the Netherlands. It was there that she made her first collection of small leather purses with hand painted decorations which later she sold on the streets. 
 
My favorite tote from their collection, a lovely light brown Bohemian leather tote!

It was through this process that Ruth fell in love with the work and the material. Slowly, she started to develop her own line of leather goods.

Their eye catching, roomy Italian red leather clutch purse!
Ruth has always worked with soft leathers, loving the feel she gets when it's combined with other natural materials such as cotton, flax, and stones like turquoise. 

Their gorgeous green leather coin purse, embellished with beads and a turquoise donut stone.

In her designs, Ruth tries to keep the design simple and comfortable.

Their fun, striped leather hip traveler's bag!

Today, Ruth has a small quiet studio in the countryside where she works with her husband. They design, cut and stitch everything in their studio in a desire to infuse meaning to every bag they make.
