Spring Break Sale!


Yep, it's Spring Break!

I don't know about you, but I'm thrilled to pieces that this week is here.  In addition to working full-time AND managing an Etsy store, I'm also a part-time student.  My mind has finally succumbed to pre-calculus overload.  :)

So, to get (some of) our minds off school work, the Belle on a Budget store is having a SALE!

All week long, you can save 20% off your total purchase with coupon code SPRINGBREAK!

In order to see your savings, you must enter your coupon code at checkout.  Click here for instructions on how to apply a coupon code.  Sale ends Friday, March 14th at 11:59EST.

And hey, don't forget that if you'd like to be a member of the Belle album, feel free to send me a pic of you wearing your Belle jewelry.  You can email it to me at belleonabudget@live.com.  I'd be happy to include you there!

Hope to see lots of you soon in the Belle store!

Savings Saturday! - Week 2

As I'm sure you can already guess by the title up there, it's time for another Savings Saturday!!  If you missed the last Savings Saturday, this is a once-per-week sale where I've marked down a select group of items in the Belle on a Budget shop.  

This is a great time for you to stock up on some great jewelry and accessories at great prices, and who knows....you may find a gift for a friend, too!  (Hey, Christmas is coming, and if you're like me, you haven't even started yet!)

The last sale was a great success, and I'm thrilled to pieces that some ladies got some great bargains while they had the chance.  :o)

Because I missed last weekend's Savings Saturday, I'm doubling up on the items this week.  I had a great excuse for missing last weekend, if you must know... sort-of a mini vacation.  :)  Check out Mr. Belle and me below--

But I digress...

This week is a hodge-podge of items, and hopefully, some that I hope you'll especially love.  Items change from week to week, so if you've been waiting for it to go on sale, now's the time to get it!  Remember, one price ships your entire order, so it doesn't matter if you order 1 item or 10 (seriously, I'd love it if you ordered 10 things, but I'm just as happy with 1).  :o)

Savings Saturday! - Week 1


Today is the first edition of Savings Saturday!  For one day only, I have chosen a select few items in my shop to mark on sale.  Each item is marked 10-25% OFF it's regular price. 

This week, many of the items I've chosen are one-of-a-kind, which means I cannot duplicate them in the exact form that you'll see in the listing.  So, if you see something marked OOAK, you may want to grab it before someone else does!  *wink*


This is a also great time to stock up on some gifts for the holiday season because it's not far away! 

And don't forget...ONE PRICE ships all your items.  So, if you want to load up that cart with some extra goodies, don't be shy! :)

New items for Savings Saturday will be chosen every week.

Favorite Pins Friday

Here's some of my favorite pins from Pinterest this week.  And lest you need MORE pics/ideas for your own Pinterest board, I've provided both the Pinterest links and the direct links to where you can get the skinny on that particular pin.  :)  And before I go any further, if this is some type of weekly meme that links up somewhere, someone please tell me.  I'm happy to give credit where it's due!

Without further ado, here's some cool stuff from my weekly Pinterest travels.  It's a little book-heavy this week, but a few books never hurt anyone, right?  ;o)

Favorite Pins Friday

I've had a hankerin' all day to do a blog post.  

Don't let that first sentence shock you, now...this is a Southern girl's blog.  :o)

But while it's easy in theory, it's harder in concept.  So, after an hour or so looking for inspiration, I think I've found my topic...maybe a weekly one at that.

Here's some of my favorite pins from Pinterest this week.  And lest you need MORE pics/ideas for your own Pinterest board, I've provided both the Pinterest links and the direct links to where you can get the skinny on that particular pin.  :)  And oh...before I go any further, if this is some type of weekly meme that links up somewhere, someone please tell me.  I'm happy to give credit where it's due!

I get by with a little help from my friends...

I admit it...I get by with a little help from my friends.  (Cue The Wonder Years intro...)  :o)


Ok, now for the actual point of this post...

I've been stocking some new pieces lately in the Belle store that are more "antique" in nature.  I've been thrilled with the response they've been receiving, especially since some have been selling out in a manner of hours.  I want to add more...especially in time for Christmas.  :o)

Crystal-Studded Blue Cameo Earrings

Here's the thing...  I need help in describing them!  I am such a poor wordsmith that "antique" is the about the only word I can come up with!  Because "antique" is such a widely-used word that doesn't really convey the style of these pieces in the best manner, I'm looking for words that will.  

Antique Copper Filigree Earrings with Blue Swarovski Beads

I have managed to come up with a couple of options...

Neo Victorian
Vintage Inspired

Other than that, I got nothin'.

So, that prompts this question from me to you--

If you were shopping for this type of jewelry, what are some words you would use instead?

Oh, and there is something in it for you, too.  :)

Antique Gold and Crystal Flower Bracelet

After compiling all the suggestions, I will randomly draw one winner to receive the bracelet pictured above.  In order to be considered for the drawing, please leave a comment with your word suggestions.  Keep in mind that I can only ship to a US address.

Thank you oh-so-much for your help!
