Etsy Love

Quite often you can find me on the internet, spending loads of cash.. Well, dreaming of spending loads of cash, on loads of things I don't need.. Loads of beautiful things. And then when I get to the end of the transaction, I close the screen. I'll share some of my current Etsy love so we can pretend we're shopping together, giggling in the changerooms and all that.

While I'm not doing so well on making handmade goodies, I'm going great guns at buying handmade.. Just don't tell my husband.. Nah, it's all for Christmas presents anyway - don't get your knickers in a knot Matt!
How cool are these knits from Yokoo?? Dang, we're heading into Spring/Summer.. Next Winter, I'm there!

I saw this dress/top from NZ duo AnemoneCrafts featured on Bliss (and subsequently bought it for my baby girl) how cute is that? And it's not pink.

From Melbourne's
Peta Pledger this cute shirt.

And now if you thought I had just gone into some sort of fashion-frenzy, I'm going to do a switch stance 180 and show you...


..t
he most beautiful paper goods from Sycamore Street Press. I bought some beautiful cards from here, and I am going to go back for more, I love them so much.


...I bought this necklace ages ago. I love it. It's so bright and quirky, and - as a double bonus - it's a great nursing necklace because the little one has so much to look at and feel..
PolkaDotThunder has lots of cute and kooky pieces to choose from.

..this gorgeous apple jar from Ladies & Gentlemen... (plus check out their gorgeous blog here)

..and a beautiful selection of vintage pieces from Paper Dolls For Boys.. Check out those chestnuts (with witty captions to boot!).

I'm all shopped out and off to bed. Peace.

Oooh - I love a bit of window shopping. I especially love those cards ("Great job on that thing you did" appeals to something twisted in me).

I do that too! I take loads of time ordering beautiful fabric, ribbon, trim and all the things I sooooo want and then I close the screen! It's nice to know others do it also - it's kind of therapeutic I think. Not to mention that sometimes I do not close the screen, which is ok SOMETIMES, as it's lovely to receive treasures in the post.
