Etsy Inspiration (aka "Why I Need an Income")

I've been coming across a lot of beauties on etsy lately.

I was resisting, until I found this new etsy shop by Jennifer Johner. So I broke down and bought a flower barette I plan on attaching to a tank top.

I wasn't going to tell S, but then I used his etsy account to order it by accident. Oops.

So without further ado, here are a few lovelies to dent the bank and delight the spirit:

A sweet flower barette from Jennifer's new shop.

Super cute 4X4 scrapbook paper from Prettly Little Studio.
(Who, by the way, has awesome customer service. When I accidentally had her send the package to my old address, she sent me another set of papers at no charge!)

If I had a baby girl, I would own these.
And this shop would be sold out.

So maybe it's good I don't have one right this second.

Macaroon soaps--because if it ain't food, it should still look it!
Although I tried macaroons this week for the first time, and was kind of disappointed:(.

I think I prefer a peanut butter cookie, uncultured brute that I am.

Not to mention that I still think macaroons come in boxes from Manischevitz.

Sweet little button blooms from Diana, who has a really fun blog.

And this fun art print, which I will put in a kitchen one day.
I will.

Have you found anything lovely on etsy lately?

And before you go, there's a fun giveaway going on over at Crafting Jewish Style--check out their blog!

Hope you have a great weekend! What are your plans?


  1. Your finds are so sweet! Those baby shoes are precious! And that barrette... is fabulous! I love your idea to adorn a tank top with it, too!

    I found that adorable birdie print, too. My mom has been looking for things to put on top of her cabinets and I found those prints and showed them to her. She loves them! So she may buy some...

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. WE have the same taste - I adore all of these too - and good thing I don't have a baby girl either. Maybe someday you will and can post all your cute stuff for me to envy. :-) TFS!

  3. Fun stuff! I hear macaroons are the new cupcake!

  4. Ohh my these Etsy pics are too darn cute!! I think I "need" those lil shoes"" :D

  5. OMG... that's me!! Ha ha, my stomach dropped when I scrolled down to that picture of the Button Blooms... was not expecting that! Thanks so much, babe! Glad you like the flowers, and that first picture is a great find... I need to check that out! :)
