Chis of Jewlsinbloom on etsy is unassuming, reserve and busy at the enjoyable task of finding wonderful treasures to share with us in her etsy shop! Here is a little window into her goals, inspiration & passions.
In her own words…
*My Name is Chris AKA Jewlsinbloom on ETSY. Retired RN and Vet Assistant, now avid gardener, Preserve maker and baker. Dog lover and rescue Foster.
Since retiring from my nursing career, I have turned my energy to Fostering dogs for a local Rescue. I recommend it for any animal lover, what you get back in love is worth any amount of time.
*I’m trying to make a difference in this world by Organic gardening, Recycling (vintage sales) and Saving Dogs! I try to be grateful and enjoy the little things life shares. Nature is my world. In the Summer most day you will find me In the Garden tending to my beauties. I am Bird and Bug friendly and regularly talk to my ‘friends’, I see the same birds and squirrels year after year. Always wanted be to on a farm with tons of animals and room to roam, but that was not meant to be.
I have been gardening and ‘working in the kitchen’ since I was a child. I was lucky enough to have 2 grandmothers living in my hometown, they were mentors, teachers, caregivers and shared their skill in baking and preserving with me. Every year My Mother and Mothers, Sisters and I would preserve tons of food from the garden. As an adult I started making Jams and adding my flair to them.
For the past 8 years I (WE, my Husband has joined me since he retired too) have been doing local farmers market selling my Jams, Herbal blends (I have an organic herb, fruit and flower garden), baked good…Its great for the social interaction too!
*I was an Art Minor in College – Polyvore gives me an outlet for those stirrings!
* VINTAGE; always surrounded me, my Grandmother’s attics were Wonderlands. My house is full of special pieces from my family. But I still love the thrill of the hunt and go hunting treasure whenever I can. I started on ETSY as a Jewelry artist. I collect & sell what I like and find pretty and hope that others like them too!
*Have fun, play, imagine…
*I live in MN. Right now we are just celebrating the return of COLORS to our world. Love Floral Prints, bright colors, Red Hair!
*I like so many brands/artists. I tend to go for the natural cottons/bamboo and
Comfy. I pretty much an outside person. CURRENT TRENDS: I love floral prints, and the Bright colors…especially Yellow for Summer! Vintage Jewelry is SO Fun and Affordable and it adds just the right ZIP to any outfit!
*I’m pretty casual but like to add a punch of Fun…jewelry, socks, prints…and I love Vintage!!! the 40’s & 50’s had such fun pieces! Also LOVE Art Nouveau.
Vintage Bird Brooch Red Rhinestone Eye Victorian Revival Nature Garden JJ Co.
I collect just about anything….jewelry, plants, vintage items, but I’m trying to simplify so most go up for sale.
Thank you, Chris! There is true inspiration here. Always pursue your passions.
