{the Greta} Giveaway!

Life seems to only be getting busier these days!! And my lack of blogging has confirmed that! geesh!!

So I must make it up to you.......with a giveaway of course (grin)!!

*photo compliments of Kyla Beth photostudio

One person will WIN a  Greta clip of their choice!! These flowers are gorgeous! I attach them to everything.....purses, cardigans, necklaces, headbands, and more! And they look just as great worn in the hair on their own (my specialty...clipping them next to a messy bun!).

I have two backings available for these clips. One is my standard partially-lined clip. And my new backing (not for children!) is a metal back that has both clip and safety pin. This allows you to still clip and wear in hair, but also to pin onto a purse or shirt exactly where you want it and for it to stay put (smile)!

-head over to the Shabby Lane facebook page here and find the post about today's giveaway
-once you've found it, click 'share' and invite your friends/family to enter too!

{the Emma} Professional Photos


Our new Emma hats are gorgeous!! With a vintage style and feel to them, they are the sweetest accessory and an amazing photo prop!! And when they're not being worn, they make for some pretty decor (grin)! 

Loving these photos by Aneca Photography!

Beautiful boutique quality flowers. Each flower is attached to a partially-lined clip, allowing you to interchange with other hats, headbands, or wear it on its own! Cotton-crochet beanies are available in infant and toddler sizes. The Emma hats look great with the fancy-schmancy outfits AND the plain-jain outfits (smile).

Visit the Shabby Lane Esty shop here to see the listings for each of the Emma hats. Click on the listings to see a closer view of each boutique flower. And.....if you shop May 28th and 29th, you can purchase an Emma hat at $2.00 off the regular price!! Don't forget to send me a note if you would like to purchase one of our boutique flower clips on its own. Or perhaps you would like to add another beanie in a different colour to your order!

A special thank you to Aneca Photography! Visit TJ's site here and say hi on facebook here!

{the Tea Party} Professional Photos

Eeeh!! I'm really excited to share this new listing with you! I combined two of my new faves....the Mia headband in vintage pink AND the Stella headband in beige with cream lace. Worn separately, they are really sweet. But when worn together, they are (grin)! 

You see what I mean??!! Gorgeous!! Those who are drawn to muted tones. romantic colours. and vintage feel, will absolutely love this combo.

So I had to create a listing that included both of these lovelies....I called it the Tea Party  and you can find it here. You choose the size and you receive two of our sweetest Shabby Lane headbands! And yes, you can still purchase these headbands separately if you like. But purchase together in this listing, and you will save $2.00!

Hope you all like (love)!
Special thanks to Kyla Beth photostudio for the above images.

The new Stella headbands are an in-between size from my regular Stella flowers and the dainty Stellas. They measure approximately 2 inches and are attached to a custom-sized skinny elastic headband.

KnitStorm Giveaway

Coffee. tea. hot chocolate. Tis' the season for warm bevvies!! And this mama is living off the java these days (thanks to a little gal waking me up by 5:30am most mornings....aarghh!!).

Today's feature and giveaway is from Etsy shop, KnitStorm. I came across this shop before Christmas; searching out some sweet gifts for my coffee (and tea) loving friends! I instantly fell in awe with the knit cozies! Beautifully made with a touch of whimsy on each one....have a peek at some of Kate's designs. You're going to love them (grin)!
Aren't they just delicious?!! You can choose from one of Kate's designs or personalize your own cozy to match a certain someone's taste & personality (heehee- could be interesting!!).

Here's a little bit more about Kate....
"All works in my shop are my original designs, made from patterns that I myself developed. I make each item by hand with the same love and care I'd devote to a gift I was making for a loved one. Handmade is, after all, all about the love!"

*All photos courtesy of KnitStorm

So many great options to choose from! And lucky us...Kate has offered one of her cozies for someone to WIN!! See the second photo above of the tea cozy in teal?! yup, that's the one!! Said by Kate- "This hand crocheted mug cozy is fabulous for insulating and decorating your cup of warm deliciousness." Love that.

Switching it up!

Change is a good thing right??!! Well I like (need) change every once in awhile....I think I get bored (grin)!

So I started with my logo. It's simple. clean. with a touch of modern. and a bit of shabby. I am really happy with it and hope to make up some new stickers and business cards...soon!!

The next thing that is (in the process of) changing is my shop! I have moved over to Big Cartel! This will be a gradual process, so please bare with me. Purchasing will still be completed via PayPal (you are directed there at checkout).

My newest & latest Shabby Lane items will be available here! The rest will be available here (many of these original items have been discontinued, so scoop them up before they're gone for good!!).

Stay tuned over the next little while, as I will be releasing many new items!! I am super-excited to share them with you and hope you like (love)!!!

p.s. here's my new addy:
