Hello friends, I hope you haven't given up on me/this blog! Things are just busy and crazy, and actually, I'm in the middle of a very simple DIY project, so I can promise that my next post will indeed be house-related, and it won't take another 5 weeks before I talk about it! As that is underway, I wanted to share some of my recent etsy purchases that I love. I think it's so important to support handmade, and I've had nothing but incredibly positive experiences with each of these sellers, so I would recommend each one without reservation. You might know by now that I'm not much of a clothing or shoe person, but rather, jewelry is my weak spot, and almost all of these are jewelry.
Let's start with a really fun ring, yes? This fantastic, lightweight dino ring from helloamor just makes me smile. I had originally wanted the triceratops ring, but she only had the brontosaurus left, so I gladly agreed to take that instead. I just love it.
Speaking of rings, oh goodness, this one just is SO very incredible. I purchased this super delicate, tiny and yet intricate vintage band from seller jessjamesjake, and it was one of those love-at-first-sight purchases, where I had to have it as soon as I saw it. Jess found this at an estate sale. Luckily, she has amazing taste and knew to snatch it up. She has many more vintage jewelry pieces, so if that's your weak spot, then you'll definitely want to visit her shop (but she has clothing, shoes, hats, glasses, and home-related things, too!)
Then, I'm trying to even things out with LOTS of new earrings. ;) These next few are from one of my favorite sellers in the world (THE WORLD, I say!), Devin of OooohShiny.
From left to right: Hematite Earrings, Amethyst Earrings, Black Tourmalinated Quartz Puffs Earrings, Yellow Amberlite Drop Sterling Silver Earrings, and one pair that I don't see back in her shop. I can tell you that her pieces are so well made and I get compliments every time I wear a pair, and Devin is such a sweetie, so you really should poke around her shop. :)
One more pair of earrings? From seller Fr33na, I definitely knew I needed these when I saw them. They have this small piece of lace and people ask me about these every time I wear them as well. They're so light and hang really well and I just love them.
I don't see this exact pair relisted in her shop, but she does have several other lace earrings that are just as beautiful.
And finally, I received a set of hand-made notecards from Emily of sparrownestscript and I'll tell you right now, Emily's handwriting is an artform in itself, and she pairs it with these amazing, lovely drawings on the front Swirling mandalas? A cute little dino? I am in LOVE!
These are all such talented ladies, so it's well worth checking out each of their shops. I hope you find something that calls out to you and says: "buy me right now, you cannot live without me!"
...... bathroom DIY project coming soon! :)
