Mitzi's Collectibles

 disclosure: i received a product in exchange for highlighting this business. all opinions are my own.

Mitzi’s Collectibles is an eclectic collection of antiques, vintage finds, and upcycled unique vintage items that are sure to be different.

Mitzi creates rosette corsages, spoon necklaces, and vintage wallpaper cuffs (seriously, so creative!)

I think the cuff especially is so unique and definitely has a 60s feel to it – It would look pretty amazing with the right outfit, it’s comfortable, and an interesting way to make a statement.

The corsages are pretty big to wear as a corsage (but I’m sure lots of people like them for that), but they’d also make nice decorations to clip to anything…in my mind, I’m seeing them clipped to an old chippy bench or sign – I guess whatever your imagination can think of!

And finally, a spoon into a necklace?  With flowers/baubles on the spoon?  This is definitely not your average necklace!

Mitzi would love to give you the prizes I just described (what’s in the picture above)!

Project Twenty Thirty-Five

Nichole has such a cute shop!  Her rings are so basic and so simple, yet so unique and personalized, which I think makes them super special.  She made me a ring to review and she has part of one of my favorite verses on it (Zephaniah 3:17 – “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you.  He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”) I was wondering a bit about the quality – would the print rub off easily or just smudge?  I figured it would be best to not get it wet, but I washed my hands a few times forgetting to take it off, and it looks just as good as when it arrived.  She offers 3 finishes – clear, white, and frosted, as well as 8 font choices.  I got the frosted and font 5.  As far as sizing, I think it’s pretty much correct. (If anything, just a tad big – I usually wear a size 6 on the ring finger of my left hand, but this size 6 was too big for that finger – but it fits my middle finger of my left hand or ring finger of right hand perfectly, so pretty close)

(my mysterious red blotch on my hand…have no clue how I got it, but doesn’t itch or hurt at all, so hopefully it’ll just go away as mysteriously as it came)

I asked Nichole if she would mind letting you all know a little bit more about her shop and the meaning of its name:

Project Twenty Thirty-Five is named after one of my favorite bible verses, Acts 20:35. This verse quotes Jesus when he said “It is is more blessed to give than to receive.” The values of Project Twenty Thirty-Five are based off of that teaching. All profit is given to charitable organizations or individuals in need.
Making jewelry has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. Instead of having a lemonade stand when I was younger, I had a “jewelry stand.”  When I was thinking about opening up Project Twenty Thirty-Five, I wanted it to be more than just a small business. I believe that God gives his children talent so that they can use that talent to glorify him. My talent is making jewelry, so donating all the profit from the business made perfect sense to me. In fact, doing this has made me much more passionate about the business and feels so much more rewarding than keeping the money.
I run Project Twenty Thirty-Five from my house, and currently I’m the only one who makes the orders. I’m also a sophomore in college and getting a degree in my other passion, Veterinary Medicine.

Isn’t that awesome??  Besides the shrinky dink rings, she also sells other rings as well as bracelets and hair clips.  Something else awesome is that she offered to give one of you a set of 2 rings!!!
