Etsy Favorites

Apologies:  this is long.  If you like, just browse through the pictures and click on them to be taken to the seller’s site.  But if you have patience, there’s some fun at the end of the post!)

I was so excited when I realized that we’d finally hit 300 followers!  I did the happy dance and then grinned at the perfect timing!  See, the picture in the Followers widget matched the seller of one of my longtime Etsy Favorites!

Meet Jennifer from Hope Studios!

HopeStudios

Now how perfect would that be at my place?  Especially after a certain little boy pulled a certain little trick, no?  Jennifer has loads of great custom quotes and beautiful fonts!  Check here out at her Hope Studios Etsy shop!

For those of you who need a bit of grown up prettiness in the middle of a BOY household… isn’t this gorgeous?

dearjes

Oh yes it is!  It’s a petite cloche with a teeny nest inside!  Get this, she’ll even personalize the egg for you!

Check out her shop on Etsy: Dearjes!  I am currently salivating over her handmade pears!

And I have been coveting one of these for the longest time… it simply makes me laugh out loud every.single.time I look at it.  And that my friends, is the mark of a worthwhile treasure!

Shop DazeyChic’s Etsy site for more colors and designs – and a guaranteed grin!

Here’s more birdie fun!

micmar002

This is HAND THROWN!  (No, Itty Bit… that is NOT what “hand thrown” means!")

I’m just in awe of the cuteness and the fact that someone made this with their own two hands!

Visit micmar002’s Etsy shop for more handmade goodness!

You know that the kitchen is my favorite place to hang out, right?  Somehow, everyone seems to gather around our island (or ON our island, if you’re my sister or me), and it’s a cozy feeling.  I love the retro feel of these towels and I think they’re cheerful enough to make cleanup not quite so boring!

littlebirdsboutique

How charming would it be to dry your dishes with these little darlings?  Find some more fun homegoods, visit the Little Birds Boutique Etsy shop!

Don’t blame me if those towels make you want to go all Holly Homemaker and whip up a batch of baked goodies!

I mean… unless you want to share with me – then *ahem* blame away!

But aren’t these the perfect combination of fun and classy?!

CupcakeConfessional

I’m half tempted to risk the smoke alarm ;)  You KNOW they’ll taste better if they look this cute!

There are a million more choices at Cupcake Confessional’s Etsy shop!

 

~

 

And we take a break for a public service announcement:  You can click on any picture to be taken directly to the listing for that item (AHEM MR. DADDY).  And to make things even easier, you might leave this blog post open on your computer and place your Paypal user name and password somewhere convenient like on a Post-It note stuck on the computer screen.  AHEM.

(I’m nothing if not helpful, right? :)

Speaking of possible Christmas presents (cuz we were, right?  Riiight???) – how about these lovelies to make your gifts extra delightful?

SeasonalDelights

There are tags for every occasion at the Seasonal Delights Etsy shop!  I have my eye on the ones with jingle bells!

 

~

 

Kind of obvious… I have a thing for stuff on the walls.  I am in love with this Family Rules sign!

SignsOfVintage

See other colors, other words, and other sigh-worthy custom items at the Signs Of Vintage shop!

 

~

I haven’t forgotten you new moms!  I am just drooling over the cuteness that Itty Bit has gotten a wee bit too tall for…  I mean, seriously?!?!

TheWishingElephant

I ADORE THIS SHOP.  I am thoroughly puzzled that my husband can resist its charms and not immediately demand that we have another wee thing to dress like this.  Trust me, you have GOT to go see the VW Bus one!  Check out The Wishing Elephant’s shop on Etsy… just beyond cool!  (Anyone else with me in staging an intervention to beg them to carry bigger sizes?  Cuz I would TOTALLY buy!  :)

 

~

 

Now for some heartbreaking news… this item sold right out from under Mr. Daddy me…

BurlapAndBlue

The whole feel of this is so perfectly whimsical and romantical.  And don’t forget USEFUL!    I mean, how awesome would some aforementioned cupcakes be on this plate?

Burlap and Blue’s Etsy shop has all kinds of amazing repurposed items… a number of which I’m ready to adopt :)  Go check them out for more beautiful cupcake platters!

 

~

 

Back to babies!  Any of your kiddos need some stylin’ burp cloths?

SewFunByMonique

SewFunByMonique has lots of fun coordinating fabrics and is so sweet to work with.  I’ll have a review of her goodies soon – can’t wait!

~

 

And something sweet to carry a spare burp rag with you?  (I mean, if you actually need one…)

JennyNDesign

I am not even kidding when I say that I couldn’t choose which of jennyndesign’s fabulous compact purses to show.  I love that the straps are long enough to wear diagonally from shoulder to hip – because let’s face it, when you’re a busy DEAF mom, it really helps to be able to use both hands.  Now if only my camera would fit in there…

 

~

 

Are the guys in your life hard to buy for?

imnotspoileddesigns

This works for the big and little ones!

Imnotspoileddesigns has lots of quotes to choose from – I had a hard time choosing.  Yes, choosing.  I ordered a set of them last year because they were just too perfect!

And here’s where I cheat.  Here’s an additional picture of a certain one that a certain someone bought :)

IMG_7485

Is that quote not fantastic?!?

 

~

 

And to close?  Just a wee bit of glitter.

laralewis

Anyone that knows me, knows that I rarely wear anything but my wedding set.  But this piece of pretty just speaks to me.  I love the princess cut, the sparkle, the vintage styling.  Methinks an ADD TO CART button needs to be used!

Lots of beautiful sparklies to choose from at laralewis on Etsy!

Now that you’ve survived the marathon Favorites post – let’s talk about YOU!  I know several of our bloggy friends have their own Etsy shops.  We’d love to include you in a future Etsy post!  Christmas is only EIGHT weekends away, so it’s the perfect time for some free advertising!

Let us know if you’d like to do a review or a giveaway or offer our readers a special – we’d love to promote family-friendly products and support artists, mommies, and talented people!  Just leave a comment with a way to get in touch and your Etsy shop link – can’t wait to hear from you!

Foursons said...

Congrats on 300!

So when should I expect my package? Do I need to be home to sign for it?

Heather said...

YAY 300! Exciting ;)

I love etsy. It's an obsessive love. Especially the home decor and jewelry. And the baby stuff. Goodness. I do a series on my blog called inexpensive etsy. I have slacked on it lately though...

Stacy said...

Congrats on 300 followers - that is great! I love the shops you featured - there is so much good stuff on etsy to buy. :)

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

Oh My Word... I NEED to do some shopping right now... Nurse Boy is going to make me stop following your blog when it hits him in the pocketbook. Ha!

Jennifer Juniper said...

Oh my goodness, that marshmallow onsie is the cutest thing I've ever seen! Thanks for the shout out :)

Buckeroomama said...

Of all the cute and pretty and cool things here, I think I'm totally in love with the Family Rules!

Tiffany said...

Woohoo for 300!!!!! I knew you could do it!!!!!

And shush on the 8 weeks till Christmas thing. I am not ready for winter.

And just how does Mr. D ignore all the baby cuteness? It must be pure stubbornness. I'm telling you - get the man some Violet snuggles and he will be a changed man!

robin said...

Congrats on the 300! I loved your choices. I tend to do the same thing for my hubby...give him a list of choices for me...some people have a harder time shopping than others, lol! I didn't realize Christmas was so close!! Eek!

Nancy@ifevolutionworks.com said...

YOu can shop for me ANYTIME! I'm sending my hubby your way. Can you help him get that ring for me? And the "trouble" plaque!?

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

8 weeks to christmas means 8 weeks to baby :)

What a fun list!! I would love to be included in your next Etsy round-up (I have something I would actually like to send you)

And congrats on 300 followers!! I am stuck just under 200 (198) its fun going up to the next hundred!!

Kari said...

What fun to feature these people on your site. Where do I start with what I liked???
The retro dish towels - hello!
The burpcloths - hello!
That ring - HELLO!!!

People are so creative and talented. I love it!

Lisa said...

I love Etsy...I could spend hours on that site.

Monique...I adore that woman.
http://myversionofmylife.blogspot.com/2010/02/feels-like-home.htm

We love the same stuff....hmmm...we should never EVER go shopping together. It would hurt the pocketbook too much (:

Lady Fromage said...

I LOVE the "bird with a french fry" one... It's totally on my wish list now :)

HeatherOz said...

Thank you for all of the dangerous shopping info!
Way to go on 300 followers!

semicrunchymama said...

Oh, etsy, how do I love you? Let me count the ways...

I love that family rules sign, and can already envision exactly where I would hang it if it were to be mine. Your idea of keeping the browser window open to that item is a good one...I may slap a sticky note on the screen that says "This is what I want for Christmas" (subtle hints don't work well around here).

And that s'mores onsie...LOVE. I want, no need it for my Peanut-in-the-making!
