Favorite Finds: Etsy Style

Rustic Stoneware Mug - Old Photo Cool Guy Mug - Deer Hunter Mug - Large Coffee Mug - Red Leaf Mug

Decisions, Decisions

Whenever I do a post on my favorite etsy finds, it's no easy task. There are just so many things that I find on etsy that I love. It hard to choose just a few to feature.  I love that about much talent in one place....from artists and crafters, to sewers and knitters, jewelry makers to leather workers, the seekers of the best vintage to handcraft suppliers. There is a lot of good stuff going on.

Despite this fact, I whittled down some of my new favorites to those below.

1. head scarf, infinity cowl via ecoshag
2. labadorite necklace via manari design
3. wooden peace sign via woodenaht
4. rustic gray capelette via kate blossom
5. digital collage with well dressed bird via pikselmatic
6. handcrafted mug via farmhouse blues
7. charming vintage beveled mirror via luncheonette vintage
8. classic denim dress via sweet home boutique
9. sweet lace trim via yarn supplies

I hope you'll check out these talented people because they have much more to offer.

We're braced for Sandy here. In fact they moved Halloween Trick or Treating to last night because of it. Had a ton of fun seeing the kids all dressed up (more on 'playing dress up' in another post this week). Right now, it's raining and the wind is whipping. It took us all weekend, and more time this morning, to batten down the hatches. We may not get hit bad, but knowing from experience, it's better to be prepared for the worst.  So we've gathered candles and flashlights, the transistor radio ('holla' if you know what a transistor radio is peeps!), and bought gas for the generator.  I've filled all my big bowls and pots with water, filled buckets with water so we can flush should we loose power....these are the important things you learn from living through other storms. The worst thing about any power outtage in fact, (at last in my humble opinion as a homeowner with well water), is not the lack of lighting, but rather lack of electricity to get water from the well to the house. We've done all we can, now we just sit back and see what happens. To all of of you in Sandy's path, including my family and friends in NY and NJ, be safe.

I hope you'll be here tomorrow. Actually, I hope I'll be here tomorrow too because I want you to meet a few friends. I think you're going to like them. If by chance I'm not here, you know why.  I'll be sitting here in the dark.

One more thing..........time is running out to enter the giveaway. There is not time like the present. You do not want to miss out on this chance to win $175 in handmade.

Ciao for now,


  1. I love the lace trim. So pretty!


  2. Nice finds, I love the head scarf the color is amazing.

    It sounds like you are all prepared for the storm, stay safe!

  3. Thank you so much Pam, lovely finds :)

  4. Those are some great finds! I was actually looking at some lace today on Etsy.

  5. Awesome finds! Ahhh how I love Etsy! Too many good things.
    I'm contemplating waking my shop back up even though I'm on holiday...seems kind of counter-intuitive to close it up while people are pre Xmas shopping. Dilemma...
    Stay safe with Sandy!

  6. we recently moved into town (no more well water) but i can remember one huge storm where we were collecting rainwater running in sheets from the roof! you're absolutely right - candlelight can be nice but the lack of water is not fun. hope the power stays on for you!

  7. Hi Pam - Thank you so much :) So glad I found your blog - I love it and your shop :)
