Two Gals From Italy, Ixela & Silvia



































We are in the thick of the Fall season and the weather is turning a bit nippy here in Providence. The first thing I want to do is cover my neck to block out that chill in the air. These two talented gals from Italy, Ixela and Silvia have my full attention with their very appealing and pragmatic neck warmers. Style is important and their artistry along with their great sense of 'looking good' even when it's cold, has totally grabbed my attention. Aren't these pieces just delicious? Check out their shops on Etsy. Just click on the photos, or Ixela or Silvia to see the rest of their artistry! Lovely!

Triz, aren't they just gorgeous...I know that both gals are very nice and I would love to own something from each of these photos...I've been admiring them (the ladies) for quite a while now... BTW,how on earth do you get so many treasuries?????

Nancy OMG, the pink scarf is to die for...I'm a pink lover...

Yup Kim, it's time...I have on my wool socks, under my dancers leg warmers and I have been known to walk around the house w/ mittens during the 'in between' times when it's not cold enough to put on the heat, but I AM!!! Jimmy is still very, very happy for his team...the parade was yesterday in Philadelphia...they had gorgeous weather..I'm still in Saturday, but I will have a great Sunday...you as well!

Waterrose said...

I love the green and the pink one. Too bad I live in a place where any of them wouldn't be practical.

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Ale, in this case, late is totally relative...you are so very welcome...I love your beautiful work and I am delighted to have you posted w/ your friend, Silvia...hope you get some sales!!!

Waterrose, they are really beautiful aren't they???...I'm totally jealous that you are in a warm climate...I'm a much happier camper in warmer temps!

Kim said...

ahh Amy
leg warmers...what would we do without them :) :)
I had the most beautiful baby pink ones when I was dancing..
I wonder what happened to them ..
keep warm Amy :):)

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Oh leg warmers...baby pink, my personal favorites!!!...Kim, here is where I bought mine:

We lived in a very big, very old, very beautiful and very non-insulated Victorian house when we first moved to RI and I became proficient @ using the plastic that shrinks w/ heat over the windows (the very large and drafty windows)to keep the breeze out. It's like being hermetically sealed in, but it worked. As much as our windows here (we bought this house 4 years ago..1923 Dutch Colonial) are new and the house is insulated, the east and west sides of the house, top floor, still need a little help...so, I did 2 windows today and I have 3 more to do...anything to save on the gas bill and stay warm!!!...hugs...:)

Frances said...

Wow! I especially love the rose-colored scarf with that pin. So perfect!

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Hey Frances...yes, the rose colored scarf looks so yummy...I totally agree!!

Lady Lynn's Boutique said...

I will be sure to check out their sites.

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Hey Lynn....divine is an excellent way to describe the pink scarf...I want them ALL!!! Good to see you here!
