Etsy Finds and FUN stuff!

We’ve been in NC for almost 2 months now and I’ve spent more time inside than usual....so I’ve been Etsy shopping!

My hubby’s afraid to leave! He knows when he gets home I’ll have something ‘new’ to show him! But isn’t Etsy the BEST! And the people that sell on Etsy are all so talented!

I ordered these primitive tucks from my girlfriend and penpal, Brenda.

Her shop is The Rusty Thimble HERE !

At first I put them in a bowl with one of my Annie dolls....


but then I thought they looked cute on my shelves.


The owl and the sheep were my favs but oh, how I love the birds and roosters she has listed now!


Then I decided I really ‘needed’ a new Raggedy Ann and I found this one at Brush Creek Primitives HERE ! Her blog is HERE !


Isn’t she precious?

She’s enjoying the balcony!



Here’s her view!


I also bought some note cards!


I can’t wait to send some to those on ‘my list’!


They are from Fifi Flowers HERE !

I LOVE her art, don’t you?

Since this is getting long, I’ll save some of my other finds for another post.

Enjoy your day! And PLEASE tell me ONE Etsy store that you like in your comments! Just don’t tell hubby! heehee!

I love the new displays - and they always look so nice with old books in the background! The artwork is gorgeous on those cards!

Etsy is definitely a fun way to shop. That raggedy ann doll is just precious. My favorite etsy store is Dime Store Chic. I find so many fun vintage items that I can repurpose into crafting projects.

Hi Diane! Oh, what sweet things you bought. Your little Raggedy is adorable. I'm loving that gorgeous quilt and pillow behind her.
Your new header is so pretty.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

My favorite etsy is Larearose, Celeste is also a blogger @ Larearose.blogspot. She is the most fabulous rose/flower painter ever. But then you know me & roses ...


Vee said...

Too many to tell about really. And don't tell my hubby either. =D

Your new Raggedy has such a sweet expression and is made with a great deal of skill. No wonder she's enjoying the view from your home.

I love ALL your adorable Etsy finds! And your view is wonderful!

Can't say I have ONE Etsy shop that I love but my daughter who lives in China finds it so easy to shop there for gifts for ME. She's sent me many lovely things for B-days and Mom's Day and she says the people she buys from are so accommodating!
It's a great way to shop!

It's me said...

Great cards !!!..love that cheap pillow too...love love love ...xxx...

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

What lovelies...yes it's a little too easy to find a Etsy store, so I must admit to having to stay away from them unless I have money saved up.

Simple Daisy was one of my fav's I wear her starfish, and tag necklace everyday.

I LOVE Etsy too! I have so many favorites - you can find them under 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets on etsy, just click my favorites - they aren't private! I have purchased so many wonderful gifts there (and quite a bit for me too!) ~Ann

I am trying hard not to buy MORE stuff. I should be SELLING stuff...not buying. As for Etsy there are so many wonderful stores out there- but Donna's Shabby Chateau comes to mine..because I just adore her. xo Diana

Oh I do adore your primitive girlie. She is so sweet. They have the cutest of faces..*s*...and the pillow is nice too. I do like owls.
There really are so many great shops in Etsy.
I like to visit Syko. She is a lady from Finland who does all kinds of nice sewing and puts on nice pictures...mini quilts also.
Take a visit...shhhhh...your hubby won't mind...*s*..

Hope you don't mind all my comments, but I'm doing a bit of catching up here today, and of course I gasped when I saw those note cards. You know how I love a bright and cheerful illustration. These are GORGEOUS!!!! Yes, I'm jealous. ;)
By the way, I would so "need" that Raggedy Ann too. ;) She's adorable.
Good to see you are enjoying your time in NC.
