Some Etsy Love

I’ve purchased some things recently that I just love and wanted to share with you.  A couple are from bloggers I follow and I hope you’ll check them out.  I always use Etsy as a resource now when I’m looking for something in particular.

First up, I’d like to share this beautiful fleur de lis tassel that Heather at Butterfly Genes made just for me!  She knows of my love of fleurs and this one is a giant!   Heather has such a wide range of tassels on her Etsy ~ there is definitely something for everyone.  Thanks, Heather!  I love it!

I was getting frustrated looking for a reasonably priced lamp shade for the little lamp I found in my basement that I wanted to redo for my desk in the living room.   Etsy to the rescue!  I found Boopsy Doodle’s Boutique, who has some really great looking and reasonably priced lamp shades.  I found this great black and white damask print shade that was just the right size for my lamp and I ordered it right away.  I got it really fast, too!

Finally, Rhonda at Blue Creek Home has been on a sewing tangent recently!  She made this gorgeous pillow and I just had to have one!  I put this on my new desk chair.  Love it!

I’ve been keeping the business cards of all my Etsy purchases and I am going to organize them by category.  This way when I need something I know exactly who I can go to.  I love Etsy!

As a “by the way”, if you have an Etsy boutique and you’d like to offer a giveaway on my blog, I’d be more than happy to devote a whole post to your hand-made items.  Please feel free to email me at kathyp{at}creativehomeexpressions{dot}com.

I'm so glad you like it, Kathy! Now to go visit those other Etsy shops! I am so proud to say that my sweet husband got almost ALL of my Christmas from Etsy shops! I totally plan on doing that again this year, so finding new shops is great!
