Do I have to chose?
As an lover of etsy (an online marketplace for handmade, vintage goods and supplies) and a shop owner of Bates Mercantile Co. I am lucky to be exposed to the most wonderful things on a daily basis. Here's some of my recent favorites:
Grandma Moses never looked so good. I love this pillow..........
.....from the people in the wagon, to the man in the barn, to the snow on the rooftops. Charming.
I've noticed a few things with dandelions recently, including this easy-as-pie tutorial by Lucy at Craftberry Bush........so dainty.
And this lovely little mirror by lilliesnightgarden. Very sweet.
This vintage Italian cigarette case reminds of a little nail case of my gram's that sits on my dresser. Lovely.
I don't play cribbage, but this antler board sure makes me want to learn. Very cool.
Lovin' the neutral tones and patterns on this bowl.
One more pop of color. Happy little fabric rings. You could wear a different one for each day of the week.
No rhyme or reason to this week's favorites, other than they caught my eye. Click on the pictures to check them all out in more detail.
