Etsy Shop Open & Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up

May 26, 2015


I might have freaked some of you out yesterday by announcing that I had some exciting news to announce and no I am not pregnant, and I am not moving in case many of you wondered. My husband and I took the leap of faith and opened up our Etsy shop called Garay Treasures. This has been a “talk” and “thought” for almost a year. I was scared having an Etsy shop would not go well but “you never know until you try” was and is the motto of my friends who do direct sales almost daily so I took the plunge and Friday and Saturday night this past weekend worked on this new shop that we are so excited about.


We are selling custom made picture frames with the verse “As For Me And My House We Will Serve The Lord” Joshua 24:15 that reflects the verse on the wall depending on lighting. This is custom made to order. (see listing here for details and price).



Also a popular item among family and friends is the lovely cork board jewelry organizers created by me to you as you all know I love jewelry. You can buy one or as many as you want for $10.50 each (plus shipping), that includes the board and hooks and hangers, jewelry NOT included. To see the details on jewelry cork board organizers see the listing here.

Because I love you guys so much as my readers, and to celebrate my family and I would like to offer you 5% off your total order with the code OPENDAY5 until June 2, 2015. That does not include shipping costs. You can pay via the listing or contact me via to discuss paypal payment. Be sure to stop by and read our policies on shipping and payment as well as additional information on our shop page here.

Thank you for taking the time to glance over our Garay Treasures Etsy shop. I would appreciate it if you followed our shop and shared it with your family or friends. You can find my Etsy button on the sidebar of the blog or at the top as one of the page links. Thank you! I hope you enjoy our treasures!

 Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:


I am always on the hunt for new ways that leopard can be styled so Megan linked up a lovely leopard print dress and showed that a touch of chambray, hat and nice black wedged sandals and crossbody bag can give off a relaxed day wear outfit. You can view the whole look and details here.


Monica rocks a lovely memorial day inspired outfit that not only looks cute but also embodies how women view their body image. In this post find out what Monica has to say about combating our insecurities and body image and accepting what we have. Read here for more.


While I don’t own any pineapple print wear I just love how Denise styled her pineapple print shoes with stripes and a cute black bag. You can view the look here.


Scalloped shorts from Shop Pumps and Pushups– enough said. Not only am I excited to order and collaborate with Pumps and Pushups for their link up I can’t get enough of their store and love viewing it on other bloggers such as Carrie here who linked up the way she styled their shorts. You can view Carries post here.
