BellisiMo Nouveau Review - Etsy



Cyber Monday has come and gone.  I did not participate in Black Friday or Small Business Saturday.  I did not boycott either of them, just chose not to leave the house!  On Cyber Monday, there were a few things that I knew I wanted to get as gifts, and when I checked that the sites were doing cyber Monday deals, of course I took advantage of that fact.  I love to give unique gifts that the gift giver will appreciate and cherish for many years to come.  When I came across BellisiMo Nouveau on Etsy, I knew that I could do JUST that!!!  Morgen, the shop owner is a dear "virtual" friend of mine and I have bought things from him before.  Emily has a beautiful handmade pink wind chime hanging in her bedroom window that came from BelissiMo!  (See the photo to the left)

When I was on Facebook Monday, I saw a post from Mo that by using the code "FBFRIENDS" you could get free shipping on all standard shipping in the US!!  There was a beautiful hand crafted Mixed Media Collage for sale that caught my eye. 

Described on Etsy as "8x10 mixed media collage using photo prints of vintage Christmas postcards.
Reproductions of two vintage Christmas postcards are collaged with rhinestones, scrapbook paper, and a bejeweled ornament. This collage would make a great gift, or a delightful decoration for you own home this holiday season.
The vintage postcard says:
"Every happiness be with you at Christmas time,
and may the New Year bring Good Health,
Good Luck and Good Times
to you."

The lip of the back of the 8x10 canvas allows for it to be hung on picture hanging hardware or a nail - hanging hardware is not included on the back, to keep costs down, but you can easily add it. You can also stand it on a mantle, shelf, or bookcase"

When I saw the collage I loved it.  Hand crafted items are the best!  I have to admit that I really admired it in the picture before I ordered, but when I opened the package up, it was way more than I could have ever imagined.  I immediately fell in love with this piece.  This is not just some post cards and ornaments hot glued to a canvas.  There is time and effort put into this piece.  It is crafted to perfection.  Morgen takes pride in his work and I am so glad that I get to benefit from it!  I started out ordering this as a gift, but unfortunately I just don't think I can give it away!  It is so beautiful and looks SO good in my living room, I think I'll hang on to it at least for now.

If you are looking for one of a kind, hand crafted Christmas gifts, I advise you to head on over to BellissiMoNouveau today.  There are others, each one different and unique in it's own way.  If you are looking for a gift for that difficult person on your list from your Mother-in-Law to your child's school teacher, these are the perfect solution. BelissiMoNouveau also has fabulous greeting cards and note cards created from many different unique and breath taking photos.  The best news is that Morgen has extended the Free Shipping "FBFRIENDS" code throughout the holidays!  To get the free shipping simply put in this code at the time of checkout!  Speaking of shipping, it is FAST.  I ordered the items on Monday and received them, carefully wrapped and packaged neatly, on Wednesday.  Even though shipping is fast, keep in mind that these items are one of a kind and if you want one, you'd better get it while they are available.  Don't wait until it's too late.  Click the link above and head on over now, tell Morgen I sent ya. 

Disclosure:  I did not receive monetary compensation for writing this post.  I did, however receive a second mixed media collage in exchange for an honest review of the product I received.  The post reflects my opinion of the product and was not influenced in any way.  To read my full disclosure, please click here
