"you are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are grey,
you'll never know dear, how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away"
Imagine my pleasant surprise when I found that I get to feature Nina from You Are My Sunshine on Etsy...again. I love this shop. Everytime I see her banner, I start to sing this song. I used to sing this song to my youngest son when he was little (he's now almost 28, gahhhh), and what a pleasant surprise to read on Nina's profile that she also sang this to her boys. Great minds, and all! haha. Here are just a few new items she has added since my last shopping trip. Yes, I am a satisfied customer :) .
She is know for her fabric flowers, but how she incorporated them into jewelry is wonderful...
like this elegant flapper bracelet.
She also upcycled this mini purse, and dressed it up with, you guessed it, a beautiful flower.
And my all time fave is this "dazzling, calling for attention" brooch. And it certainly does that!
With 907 sales, and 555 feedbacks, all 100% positive, you can rest easy that your money is being wisely spent in Nina's shops. And speaking of shops, I don't know how I missed this the first time, but Nina has a second shop on Etsy...My Sunshine Vintage.
I would have finished this feature long before now, but I literally got lost in this shop searching for just the right items to share with you. With 913 items to choose from, I was happily lost in this vintage world. I love all things old...at least older than me...haha. When they first started playing my songs on the classic station, I cried, and while antiquing with my hubby, I used to say "I wonder what it was like back then". Now I say "hey, I remember those".
Like these bright and colorful vintage tinker toys.
Now, I didn't play with these myself, but my kids would have.
And these potholders would have been something my granny would keep in her kitchen.
Way too pretty to use.....and speaking of granny, check out these glasses!!! My "much older" sisters used to wear glasses like these, HAH!
And for one of my favorite memories ever...Alice in Wonderland.
I grew up in an old farmhouse, and my mother (who was a great artist) painted an Alice In Wonderland mural on the wall in our back breezeway. Remember breezeways??? So this mural was the last thing we would see going out, and the first thing we would see coming home.
My Sunshine Vintage is also an established shop with over 1500 sales, and 100% positive feedback. You really must check it out, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there.
