Latest Trend...and a giveaway

Here in Utah we have this daytime talk show called Studio5.
It's a crafty, DIY kind of show that often highlights the latest
trends in the creative/artsy world. Last week they did a little
spot on using zippers as embellishments. I thought...."Hmmm,
that's a new one to me!" Then what do you know, just like that,
I started seeing them everywhere!
That afternoon I took Liesl to the mall to get a dress and shoes
for the Sweetheart's dance, check out the shoes she fell in love with.

Yep, zippers! As we walked out to the car we passed a kiosk
filled with leather purses that were embellished with....
yep, zipper flowers. That night I searched etsy to see what
was going on in etsyland where zippers were concerned
and sure enough.....
I found zippers!
An unbelievable statement piece at Believe In Happy
(love that shop name!)


A big beautiful zipper brooch (love the leaf) from Handcraft USA


and last, but not least, a sweet demure little
zipper flower headband from Feathered Whimsy.
So ingenious....I wonder who comes up with this stuff?

HERE COMES THE GIVEAWAY PART!

You know I'm all about giving a nod to new etsy shops
and I'm kinda partial to new etsy shops from Utah.
So....guess what? Leigh from Feathered Whimsy just
happens to be a Utah girl and her shop is brand spankin'
new. She would like to give my readers the chance to win.....

The sweet little zipper flower headband pictured above.
So, here's how to enter:

Just hop over to her shop and check out all of her cute stuff.
Come back here and leave a comment letting me know
what your favorite item at Feathered Whimsy is.

My followers (as usual) get a second chance to win,
just for being awesome!! So, leave an extra comment
if you're a follower as well.

DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE AN EMAIL WHERE WE CAN REACH YOU IF YOU WIN!

GOOD LUCK!
(giveaway ends friday 2/12 at 10:00 mountain time)
