april ad } cardinal house

April brings us a shower of prettiness with our first sponsor welcome, Cardinal House! You will be overwhelmed if you visit this shop, full of lovely jewelry and accessories. Cardinal House is an eco-friendly shop that merges the beauty of garden flowers with textile fabric scraps and vintage beads to become beautiful jewelry creations. I personally own one of the flower necklaces and I cannot even tell you how many many compliments I receive. Definitely a favorite in my collection.

Cardinal House has graciously offered a 15% reader discount until April 15th. Simply enter "JOY15" into the Etsy coupon code during checkout. This discount even applies to sale items AND includes FREE U.S. shipping. You do not want to miss out on such a great offer! Click here to view the beautiful collection.
