Boosting Etsy Shops Team - The week of 12/18

Only in November it was so cold and rainy, and now the weather is hot and dry, almost as in a summer's day. I guess
 these drastic changes in the weather have caused many of us here to contract colds and the flu, and I am one of the honored! The thing is, I've become rather spoiled. I had not had a cold for the last 4 years. Thought God loved me too much for this! But - this time the flu got me so that I was not really  prepared !!  Surprise surprise - I am just as human as any one else around... - Ach...(sorry - that was a sneeze!!). Dear Almighty, what have I done to deserve this??!!

But there is no Bad without any Good, as you probably know. At least this cold allows me to stay home (thank God the Christmas Sale craze is over) and attend to my BESTeam shop members:

 I have just chosen a most lovely Cayenne hand painted silk ruana. Truth is I had trouble deciding which one to choose, as all of Joyflower's items are something to have. It is a combination of bright red hot colors from Crimson to Tomato red..A a wearable art item and one of a kind, made of the best silk,and you will look fabulous in it! Will go with any outfit.

As I searched on, I entered Our home to Yours shop Among many home made and vintage items I found this most charming  Set of 6 vintage porcelain coffee cups, circa 1960, stamped on the bottom, "Autumn Song, Royal Domino Collection, Japan".These cups are in mint condition and in their original box. 
 I love the delicacy of this set. The design is unique!

The fourth shop CKSilver has some of the loveliest bead and silver necklaces . As I adore moonstone beads I chose this gorgeous necklace called moonlight sonata moonstone and green. It is created of brilliant rainbow moonstone 4mm beads, green Jasper 6mm beads and sterling silver on a very strong flexible wire. The clasp is a classic toggle clasp.

Well now dears . I am going to sit in the sun for a while!  Hope this will help!
