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!
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?
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!
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!
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?!
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?
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!
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?!?!
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…
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 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…)
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?
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 :)
Is that quote not fantastic?!?
And to close? Just a wee bit of glitter.
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!
