Pink October 7th through the 21st

Please join Sweetheart’s Nest and Make Mine Pink in our effort to help women and children affected by domestic violence.

Each year many of the boutiques at Make Mine Pink get together to give back to a charitable organization of their choice by holding a Pink October event. This year, because October is also "
Domestic Violence Awareness Month," we've decided to hold a special "all pink boutique" and contribute 10% of all sales to The Pink Slipper Project. We hope that you'll stop by and see some of the fabulous PINK merchandise that we'll have for your enjoyment.

The Pink October Boutique will open October 7th and run through October 21st.

Amazing Handmade Victorian Dolls

At Sweetheart's Nest we are excited to announce the addition of an amazing local artist to our list of suppliers, our Half-Doll Maker~Nancy!

It's been all we could do, to keep the announcement to ourselves as we anxiously awaited the arrival of the first amazing one of a kind pieces. Each piece is hand made, hand painted and even the fabric embellishments are hand made.
These are the real thing. Handmade porcelain half dolls made from original German molds. Join us in welcoming Nancy to the Sweetheart's Nest family and stop by from time to time to see the latest creations.

Artists biography:
I have always been interested in crafting heirloom pieces. While watching a cable show about silk flowers I discovered half-dolls! The fine features and delicate painting of the dolls intrigued me from the first moment I saw them. I needed more.
I began collecting immediately & soon began producing my own half-dolls.
The more I searched the more exciting it became. My search led me to a contact that provided me with the original German molds used to cast the dolls. I now have over a hundred molds & the work has taken over a major portion of my home! My three kilns are firing daily to produce heirloom quality reproductions for you to enjoy in your home! Here are just some of the exquisite dolls!

Valentine's Day Approaching!!!

Valentine's Day is after all one of my favorite holidays! February is actually my Birthday month! My mother likes to tell me that she tried real hard to have me on Valentine's Day but I guess I just wasn't ready so I was born on February 17th. That is close enough I say!

A little about some of our new products~ At Sweetheart's Nest we strive to find new & exciting products! There is really not a whole lot of decent products on the market for Valentine's Day! I unfortunately had purchased what I thought was a really nice set of glass Valentine's Day Heart's Appetizer Trays & matching Dessert Plates that were just adorable but had to reject everyone of them because they did not meet our quality standards. That was a bit of a disappointment~ Below is some of the items I have listed on our site and a Spring & Easter item I couldn't resist listing! I think this will not last long!

One last thing we will be attending an upcoming show and I have started making out my list for our customers of items they are in search of. If there is anything that you've been trying to find drop me an email & let me know!

Here is some of our Valentine's Day Collection:
Here is one of our Valentine's Tree's that we decorated, you may see more by visiting Sweetheart's Nest Website

These Valentine's Day Towels remind me of the sweet little twitter bird!

Here is a couple of our new Spring & Easter items I couldn't resist listing!

This gorgeous Flower Basket is of a good size, great for Spring & Easter
