This is ... Nora of

norakaren.etsy.com and HerenciaVintage.etsy.com



Favourite colour?

I'm torn between black,my faithful partner in clothing and shoes and the two other good friends: green (in all the color palette) and hot pink,a true loyal pal for a blonde gal.



Favourite smell?

Another difficult question because there are too many but I'm going to stick with Vera Wang for Women,the bakery smell and the gas station smell.

Favourite place?

The Beach. Being close to the ocean makes me feel closer to God.



Favourite sound?

Music,in many shapes and forms. I guess 80's music is my favorite because I'm an 80's girl.

Favourite way to spend your time?

Painting and designing. Even in dreams I get ideas and my night sleep comes filled with creations. Followed by spending time with my hubby,kids and friends.

Favourite item in your shop of all time?

My peacock painting in any form or outfit. I'm in love with that gorgeous peacock.



Why?

Because the Peacock is the King of Birds. I love birds.In the spanish language we call it Pavo Real( something like Royal Turkey). We really call it royalty. It is so powerful,so glamorous,the colors of royalty and the way it displays its wings,tells you that you can't avoid looking or stop staring at it.
It is an object on inspiration and see it in so many possibilities makes me happy and proud.(In a good way)



Favourite shop that isn't yours?
My favorite shops are very different but all related through Fashion
www.DaintycrochetbyAly.etsy.com Incredible crocheted pieces
www.eclettica.etsy.com Haute Glamour in Jewelry
www.attiladesign.etsy.com Out of this world!

Why?

Pretty much I added a description of the 3 of them. But basically they are proffesionals in the way they work with detail,excelence and glamour.
They have very different styles but they are the best in their kind (in my point of view)

What has been the most useful lesson you've learnt so far that you'd like to pass on to our readers?

I could say with total honesty that selling online like in many other phases of life requires time,patience,devotion,sacrifice,being constant and working with excellence, from answering a convo,to shipping and compromising with your job.



Thanks Nora!
