Yes, the dress needs to be pressed. So? It is SUCH a great deal (see below!) – and such a great dress – that having to iron it? Not even a problem. Look at that sequin detail, and the lovely neckline, and the flattering waist. And it’s a size 16 – not a size 2! Yes. Love!

I found this wonderful dress over at Well Worn Wardrobe, a vintage boutique on Etsy. The shop owner, Lonita, has some terrific finds, clear pics, and she gives the detailed info you need to make an online purchase. And her current sale goodies – fabulous!

This prom dress, this lovely garment, is on sale for $14.97 plus shipping – I am not kidding! You really need to go visit her shop and find those special buys you’ve been looking for. You will totally thank me!

Prom dress. Party dress. Bridesmaid dress. This dress WORKS.

Personalized gift for mom – triple rhinestones in birthstone colors

These golden brass, triple rhinestone settings have three glass jewels – and if your mom has three kids, you can pick those three birthstone colors to customize her Mother’s Day gift!

Don’t let the closeup fool you, these are tiny rhinestones. These beads are great used as jewelry connectors, but also wonderful when you use them exactly “as is” for delicate drop earrings. (You can get these without the little ring on the bottom, if you prefer.) If your mom likes really Out There big earrings, add showy emerald teardrops at the bottom ring. But if delicate is her style? She’s going to adore these tiny treasures 🙂

And she’ll love that you thought of it!

Peridot green glass gems – August birthstone

If you visit my shop occasionally you may remember these from last year – I finally got more in! Peridot green glass octagon gems – or “framed glass pendant or earring jewels” as they are often called. Me? I just love the color 🙂

And, just thought I’d mention, peridot is the birthstone color for August. If your mom has an August birthday, these would make an awesome pair of earrings, or framed glass pendants.

See? Such a cool color – and an easy DIY gift for mom 🙂

Spring 2017 jewel colors – vintage glass :-)

These pretty rose pink vintage glass jewels are actually a restock and I was so happy to find some more! They’re just under 1/2″ wide and great used “as is” for necklace or earring gems – but as you can see, they’re terrific in this multi-stone, “two jewel” setting.

The settings are available in silver, patina brass and golden raw brass – and the color combos shown are lovely. But the extra nice thing is that you can customize, so you can make a gift for mom with her favorite “pink plus color” combo!

Pink framed glass pendant and earring beads

Because pink is such a pretty Spring color 🙂

Of course there are lots of pink glass gems in my Etsy shop. And if there’s a shape or size you can’t find, just ask me – I might have some or can find some for you. But I just wanted to show some easy DIY pendant and earring beads that don’t cost a lot of money or take a lot of work.

And these would make a wonderful jewelry set for Mother’s Day. Just saying 🙂
