What have you been buying on Etsy recently?! :)

Happy Saturday Everyone! :)

Sorry I have been MIA recently (I will explain in another blog post :)

Well, over the past few months I have bought a few items on Etsy and I LOVE them! So, I wanted to share them with you!

Hope you Enjoy!



Nina Wreath By The Keepers' House




I just couldn't resist taking a photo of this beautiful wreath on my front door :)




Hand painted small journal By Arty Aitch




"Feather" By Dirksen Dabbles

Now if you haven't been over to see Bethany's work you are missing out on viewing some beautiful artwork. Bethany is a fellow Portlander who just happens to be living in Europe right now and you can read all about her art and her adventures on her blog Dirksen Dabbles





Hand Crafted Red Journals By Tiger Food Books

These Journals are truly amazing. Hand Crafted from start to finish. Clare is a talented printmaker, book binder, talented artist and photographer. She is also a fellow Portlander. If you want to get to know more about this talented lady check out her blog Tiger Food Press



2011 Mini Beach Calendars By Mary Vican Photography

Mary is a member of fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy) of which I am a member too. I have LOVED Mary's work for sometime and so just had to buy some of her beautiful mini beach calendars for mini Xmas prezzies :) The added bonus for me is she lives on the East Coast and as I have never been there I get to experience it thru her eyes :)

Vintage Wooden Blocks By Retro Vertigo

Very excited to use these in some photos :)





Ladybug Tea Cozy By Debs 102

I just couldn't resist buying this cutie for my Daughter for Xmas :)


Leave me a comment and let me know what you have LOVED buying on Etsy recently :)

Thanks for all the comments and advice about Photoshop; I think I am going to get a free 30 day trial and see how I do with it. :)


Have a Lovely Weekend.

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Nice to see you back on your blog. :)
Oh T, your etsy purchases are divine, real treasures indeed. That tea cozy is...well cute as a bug...cute bug that is and not one of the yucky ones. As for your door wreath from TheKeepers'House, it's gorgeous and holds promise that Spring is only a month or two away. I truly love your new journals and think they will be perfect for recording those special thoughts, poems, prayers or inspirations.

Great stuff! That wreath looks wonderful on your door - when I saw the first photo I didn't think much of it but the red really makes all the colours pop. :) I love all those journals too... off to take a look at Tiger Food!

My most recent purchase was these printable Valentines from African Grey:

I'm going to tuck them in with little gift bags of chocolates for my friends for Valentine's day. :)

The vintage wooden blocks are my favorite! We played with my parents' old blocks when we were little, and this just reminds me of those times!
Wow! Lots of memories! Thanks for sharing!

Warmly,

What a fun collection. It was a great surprise to see my artwork in my feed reader! I love buying things from Etsy and can't wait until I have an actual income to spend some more!

Lovely purchases! That ladybug tea cozy is especially cute. Here's my handmade trove of items from fellow Etsyians.

Meeling said...

Love the beach calendar and that tea cozy is toooooo cute!!!!
I haven't really bought anything since before Christmas, but I have my eye on a couple things...I'm waiting till my BD in March...then maybe I'll splurge on a couple things! ;-)

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Love the wreath! I'm a fellow Oregonian focused on gardening so that wreath really speaks to me. And then those blocks, love them. If only I would have held on to all my kids' blocks. :)

T! Great purchases! I especially love the wreath :) My purchases of late have been centered around building up stock of beads for future creations. In order to satisfy my desire to spend more $$, I am just making treasuries :) Had one hit the front page a week ago...how cool is that?! xo Jenni

T @ Poppy Place said...

Very cool Jenni, must have made you feel good, I think treasury making looks like a lot of work but I am so grateful to the people who make them :) cheers, T.

Annette said...

Ooooh great purchases! I love Bethany's paintings and hope to buy one soon. I haven't bought anything since Christmas when I bought earrings for my daughter!

MAB Jewelry said...
