Well, I've never looked at the wonder that's Etsy. (For those who don't know, Etsy describes itself as "Your place to buy and sell all things handmade.") Maybe I was afraid that I'd discover a new obsession, or want to start a shop of my own (which I don't have time for right now). More likely it's just that I haven't had the time to venture into yet another online haunt.
But this morning while I was rocking baby girl I took a few minutes to peek at the Valentine goods. I'm just amazed at how wonderfully creative people are. Here's a little sample of some things that caught my fancy.
Honey Almond Lip Balm
I have a weakness for cool lip treats, so this pink-labeled balm jumped out at me.
These aren't normally colors I'm drawn too, but they work here. Very pretty.
Adorable valentine tags
What can I say, are they not too cute?
Organza heart necklace
This would be easy to make.
Tree Hugger Picture
OK, before my husband passes out when he sees that I've linked a tree hugger picture on my blog, thus proving that I'm even wierder than everyone thought, let me just issue a disclaimer--I'm not one. That is, I'm personally pretty crunchy, but not in a Mother Earth Worship kind of way. And that's not what this absolutely charming picture is trying to communicate anyway, insofar as I can tell. I've discovered a new favorite artist at MillyMollyMandy. Beautiful. Check out the whole shop. I could spend a fortune there, but I have no clue where I'd hang her pretty prints.
Finally, these little baby booties, which made me swoon (Like I said, I'm wierd). More on baby booties next. As in how to make.
