My 15 minutes...

You all know The Nester. Who in the blog world doesn't? Well, okay, not everyone, but in the circles that we all run in in blogland everyone knows who she is.

Not only is she a window mistreater extraordinaire, but she has made beautiful tassels. I say "has" made because she's giving it up for the time being.

Why in the world would I be mentioning all of this? Well, who do you think she sold her zillion spools of ribbon and her bazillion yards of fringe and gazillion toppers to? That would be...

ME!!!!

Remember this pic?

It's a delivery notice letting me know I had four boxes to pick up. I was like a kid at Christmas. Sooo much pretty stuff. I have once again burned my fingers beyond recognition (okay, maybe not quite that much) getting ready for Christmas.

Here are some of my latest ones, some of which you may have seen already if you have visited my Etsy shop.

I have to say this is my favorite one:

I. LOVE. THIS. TASSEL. I have gone back and forth and back and forth on whether or not to list it on Etsy. See, the fringes that I used were remnants and I don't have any more just like them. So this Snowman and Snowbaby Tassel is a one of a kind. I can make one similar (oh, you can bet on it!), but this one is the only one like it that I'll do. See why I think it's so special? Well, even though I do adore it, you can have it for your own just in time for Christmas decorating (oh, who am I kidding...y'all have probably had Christmas decorations out since the day after Halloween!).



"Run, run, as fast as you can; you can't catch me, I'm a gorgeous tassel!"

Yes, this is part of my description of this yummy tassel on Etsy. I couldn't help it. Hey...sniff, sniff...I smell cookeez! Sorry...Nacho Libre quote...my sense of humor is so imbecilic!



Red finial tassel looks so pretty in red with its matching red and white ribbons. And those feathers. I do love the feather. How could I not? It rhymes with Heather!



Speaking of feathers, I loooove this Weathered Feathered Reindeer Tassel. He's worn just enough to be interesting. And the feathers...well, they're just pretty.

Speaking of Reindeer....

Oooh. Laaah. Laaaaaaaah. I loved folding all that ribbon...it was like playing with a taffeta gown. Sooooo Pretty.

Not only did Nester sell me her stuff, but she's also featuring me on her blog today. Can you believe I just wrote that without using all caps? My fingers are twitching from the effort not to. I am beyond excited.

Now, if you see a tassel that you love, you'd better grab it because with the exposure at Nesting Place I'm hoping my tassels will be selling like hotcakes. Or something like that. Anyway, I want you to have first dibs, so you better get on over there!

Then, as if you already don't read enough about these tassels, head over to Nesting Place and read some more!
