a little savings for you


Good today through Friday, June 24th, the coupon code GOWILD will save you 20% off your entire purchase at Lemon Kissed. This is even good on sale items, however, it cannot be used on the Jewelry Club subscriptions.

Happy shopping!

more s'mores...


We got a little creative in the s'mores department yesterday. They were so amazing that I just had to share.

We replaced the Hershey's chocolate bar with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, used 2 marshmallows, and honey graham crackers. I made them all snuggly in their aluminum foil, and then Trask threw them on the BBQ for about 4 minutes.

The end result: gooey fingers, lots of smiles and a small food baby in my stomach.

Seriously, go do this. It's amazing.

Lemon Kissed News


Lemon Kissed will be celebrating its 1 year birthday at the end of this month, and along with a birthday sale celebration, we're also making some fun changes with Lemon Kissed.

Lemon Kissed will be leaving Etsy. I am venturing out and will have my own website - from there you can catch up on the blog, do some shopping, and hopefully it will be easy as pie to still get your Lemon Kissed pretties. I will keep a few items in the Etsy shop, but the majority of Lemon Kissed's jewelry will be available from our website. The website is going to be a big project, but will be ready to shop in by July!


We're learning, growing, expanding! Lemon Kissed will soon branch out and be offering many new styles of jewelry for you to adorn your pretty selves with. I hope that this is as exciting to you as it is for me. My head is overflowing with new ideas. As always, I am always happy to hear what you want to see from Lemon Kissed, too, so please always keep those ideas and requests coming.


Also, Lemon Kissed will soon be offering a few new pieces at lower price points - but get them before they are gone, because most of these earrings will be one of a kind pieces, and priced at $10. Awesome, right?!

Nothing but MORE FUN and adventure awaits Lemon Kissed and all of our amazing friends! Thank you SO much for making Lemon Kissed so much fun. And for helping it grow from a little bitty shop that started with small flower earrings into much, much more. I am truly blessed to be able to call all my fans and customers and supporters my dear friends as well.


Lots of love!

thrifty jewelry displays

I'm constantly looking for cute and fun ways to display jewelry, whether it is my own or for Lemon Kissed open houses. I am not a fan of the traditional jewelry box (yawn), it's just too boring for me. I think that jewelry is art, and when it's not on you, I think it should still be out and displayed all pretty.

Displaying your jewelry doesn't have to be a difficult or expensive task. I'm here to give you a few thrifty thrift store finds that I turned in to instant jewelry displays. Ready??



SHUTTERS

First, wooden shutters are a great find. I found this little gem today for $4. It isn't beat up, but it has a shabby feel to it, which I love, because it's perfectly casual and relaxed - just my style.

Shutters can be used to hang most dangle earrings. You could even pick up a few knobs and affix them to the shutter to hold necklaces and bracelets. I just draped a necklace on the edge and that worked, too.

Shutters can be hung on the wall, to clear up dresser or table space, or to fill a blank wall, or they can be propped up on a surface, making it easy to transport from spot to spot. This is handy for open houses!!



EGG CUPS
Okay, honestly, when I found these egg cups, I thought that they were candle holders. I guess it doesn't matter that I was wrong (it's rare), because I knew right away that I'd be using them for jewelry display.

These egg cups were $1.99 each. I haven't seen many egg cups that have the saucer-type plate underneath, but then again, I haven't paid much attention to egg cups. I bet if you had an egg cup, it could be adhered to a cute saucer, to get the same effect as the ones pictured here.

I figured there were two ways to use these egg cups: singly or stacked. I haven't decided which I like better, so I won't be busting out the glue any time soon, but I do like that I have the option to stack if I want to.



FIGURES + PONIES
My sister made me this incredibly clever chalkboard horse that she made with an old Breyer pony. I love putting a necklace or a bracelet on the pony when it's not on my neck or wrist - this way I feel that the pony serves an extra purpose. Are there figures or things on your dresser or armoire that could hold a necklace for you? Just an idea...

Displaying and storing your jewelry doesn't have to be expensive, because that takes away from your jewelry spending budget anyway!

I'd love to hear your ideas or solutions to displaying your jewelry, or on how you re-purpose items around the home.

xoxo,
Shauna
