I Heart This

If you have never heard of Etsy you have a treat in store for you. Get a beverage, turn off your phone and settle in for some serious browsing and drooling.

Etsy is kind of like Ebay, but everything is handmade. I super love handmade.

Etsy is where I first came across Lindy Longhurst and her Serpent Mandalas Shop. You've heard me rave over her stuff before. Take a look again. Love love love the colors and characters. They speak to me.

But THIS is the shop I can not stay away from today. I keep going back to press my face against their window and drool. I so want one of these bangle bracelets for Mother's Day this year. Or THIS Mother's Circle PendantAnd you know what? I might just order it.

Mother's Day is always a toughie for me because Gabriel's anniversary falls that week before. But this year Gabriel's date is on Sunday. Mother's Day. Yeouch. So if I want to spend some money on myself I just may do that.

Anyway, back to shopping.

How about these delicious looking cupcakes? How cute are these? I have heard they are wonderful. I can't vouch for them myself because I can't justify spending $8.50 per cupcake. So I keep going back and looking at their shop. And licking my computer screen. But if anyone wants to know I'd like one of each. Especially the New Nut Job, Plain Jane in a Party Dress, and a PMS/Chocolate Overload. Thank you.

I'd love to hear what your favorite etsy sellers and items are.

Off to browse some more

peace-
emily

I also heart Etsy! I looked at the ones you like and there is some really great stuff on there. My birthday is coming up and I am going to need to point a thing or two out to Richy, so thank you! Also, you should check out Knitknit designs by Nguyen Le, she has incredible stuff. Actually, Emily, Nguyen in also the photographer who shot all of our work at the gallery for the Beauty In The Breakdown exhibit. She is an amazing artist in all mediums, but she recently moved to Brooklyn and is focusing on knitting- and she has the most creative little things. Here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=3278
