Desiring Joy

Happy Thursday, lovelies! I have the day off of work and I will be spending it gettin' ma hurr did, and let's be honest, probably some more cleaning and packing.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this picture I posted earlier this week:

How gorgeous is my new scarf?!?!
With fall just around the corner, I've been on high alert for some new scarves. Who isn't?! Well, when a friend of mine from college announced via Instagram that she was adding some new scarves to her Etsy shop, I automatically went to her shop and snagged this beauty minutes after she put it up. And I'm in love!

I know most of you are as obsessed with scarves as I am, so I want to introduce you all to Anna, the creative mind behind my beautiful scarf and the owner of Desiring Joy. This girl is not only super gorgeous, but Anna has a heart of gold and has been beyond blessed in the creativity department (unlike myself). Not to mention, she's hilarious. I've had the honor of spending some quality time with this woman...like when we stayed in the sketchiest motel ever in Upstate New York for a wedding. I know you all will love her as much as I do!


My name is Anna, and my wonderful husband and I are starting a new adventure in Pittsburgh. I recently opened a new Etsy Shop called Desiring Joy. I have the blessing of being a stay-at-home wife and using my design background to create things I love and things that will spread happiness to those around me. Scarves are my first passion - they are the most versatile accessory in a woman's wardrobe. I carefully hand-pick fabrics that are vibrant and unique, girly and chic, trendy and timeless - I want every woman who wears one of my scarves to feel absolutely breathtaking in it. 

Right now, Desiring Joy is all about the scarves. I need to get busy sewing - I have a ton of new fabric that I am excited to debut to the public. While sewing is one of my favorite things to do, my passions also include graphic design and photography. Save-the-Dates, Wedding Invitations, Greeting Cards and Photos will soon make an appearance on Desiring Joy. I hope you make a visit over to my Etsy shop, desiringjoy.etsy.com, and meanwhile keep reading Jenna's blog - I love her and her blog is awesome! 

Ladies, do me a favor and head over to Anna's Etsy shop STAT! You don't want to miss out on the gorgeous scarves she has for sale right now. Here are some of my favorites:

Classic Paisley Blend Infinity Scarf
Vibrant Purple and Green Art Deco Infinity Scarf
Classic Leaf Purple and Green Infinity Scarf
And, of course, the scarf that I purchased, the Spring Dogwood Peach Floral Infinity Scarf!

So what are you waiting for?! Go get yourself a beautiful new scarf just in time for Fall! I promise, you will not be disappointed!

Those are gorgeous! Thanks for this, I need some new scarves since I'm updating my wardrobe for after the baby. Are they lightweight enough for Miami weather? I have to be careful ordering scarves that won't turn me into a sweaty mess by 9am down here.
