Thankful for you Sale & Happy Fall


Hope you all enjoying a wonderful fall season.  It seems once Halloween ended and the calendar turned to November first, my inbox was filled with so many emails about how close the holidays really are.  With Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, I started to reflect about all the things I am thankful for. Shabby Lane Shops is hosting a 'Thankful for You' sale.  What a great way to thank all the wonderful people who visit the site.  

Here is how it will work at  Each day, starting today, November 5, I will post a new item on the 'Thankful for You' page at a great savings.  Whether the item sells or not, a new item will be posted the next day, so check back often.  

Remember to check back often.

Goodnight Irene!

Hello -

I hope you all weathered the storm and are safe.  Here in Connecticut, we had so many trees and wires down that they had to postpone opening the schools until after labor day.  Many people in my town are still without power.

Today is the first day I have been able to have an internet connection.  Of course, I had to leave the state!  If anyone has not received an order or response to an inquiry, please email me directly at 

and I will make sure that your issue is handled.  

I think the saying is 'When life hands you lemons, make lemonade', and that is just what I did!  I have been busy in my studio, which has a great set of windows to let in lots of light, crafting many new creations for the site.  Hopefully, items will be able to be posted this week for your viewing.  I will be sending a newsletter with a coupon code, so if you have not signed up for the mailing list, now is the time.  Just visit 

scroll halfway down the page, and you will see the small beige box on the left side.

Summer by the Sea

Hello Friends -

I hope you are all having a lovely summer.  I have been spending most of my time by the sea, hence the not working on the blog!  Something about being in this setting really relaxes me.

The ocean really seems to be getting the creative juices flowing and I am looking forward to adding more items to the sit.

For today's Tuesday Treasures, I took 40% off a few items, so stop by and check it out.

Flowers, flowers, everywhere

Hello -

I hope you are enjoying the spring.  It has been raining here in Connecticut for almost four days, so, needless to say, I have been very busy loading the website up with lots of new items.  The one great thing is that it is lilac time here and when we bought our current home, we inherited about 8 large bushes.  I have been busy bringing some indoors and arranging.  They smell divine!

Inspired by all the spring flowers and a clip that I once made and just wore in Orlando, I have made a ton of new floral hair clips in great colors in time for summer:


No way can you have a bad hair day with one of these clipped on.  I also made a few to be pins to add to your favorite accessories.

Another new item I have created to go with the charm bracelets are charm necklaces.  These necklaces contain a loop with holds a few different charms:

And I have been working on more scrapbooks so be on the lookout for those.

This week, I will be adding many new items to the site.  I just need to take the photographs!

Sale and Inspiration

Hello -

I am hosting a site wide sale today (February 15) for Tuesday's Treasures.   Receive 15% off your entire purchase.  Just enter discount code FEB15.  

Did you watch the Masterpiece Classic, Downton Abbey?  While following it week to week, I have been busy creating lots of new items so keep checking back in the next few days. 

Also, I found some of the most beautiful stationery ever.  It is designed by Kelly Lynch and the company is called Flourish.  Since she does not have a web site, I am going to be able to have it on IBJ.  It is stunning and I really think you will like it.

As you all know from my lack of blog entries, it is something that I struggle with.  Well, not anymore!  I need to give a shout out to Debbi at  She has the most lovely blog and has inspired me to do more blogging, so watch out for that!  Please make sure to visit her at:
