fantasy shopping league

***see AWESOME DEAL @ end of post!!!***

i love etsy.
i love the serious cuteness.
i love the crazy creativity of people.  it's so inspiring.

so let's pretend we just got starbucks & now we're strolling the aisles of etsy (you know, like if it were a real place).  we're buying homemade & supporting small businesses.  yaay!  oh, & i got a caramel macciato.  what did you get?

me:  ooooo!  look @ this!! 
found HERE
maybe i should scrap the whole "matching hudson" idea for holland & dress her up like a pumpkin for halloween.
OR a strawberry...
HERE again
i could even make leg warmers to match!
oh my gosh that's a cute store.

you:  ooooo, a jewelry store - JUST ENOUGH STYLE!  look @ these...
shop HERE
me:  love!  do they have them in white?
you:  YES!  and i'm getting them!  (you have a have a fancy occasion to go to)
HERE again
(***see AWESOME DEAL @ end of post!!!***)
me:  okay, but i'm borrowing them!!  oh!  look how cool these are...

from HERE
you:  there's just something about plain canvas that's so appealing.
me:  i agree.  & simple stamping. 
you:  how funky is this...
also HERE
me:  oh cool!  love the funkiness.  that would look so great on my green couch. 
you:  unfortunately the cream color, delicate stitching, plus the "spot clean only" won't go well with leaky bottles or diapers.
me:  are you saying my kids have leaky diapers?  because you know, i DO buy pampers.
you:  no, i'm just being dramatic.
me:  oh, okay, you're allowed.  LOOK at this!

shop HERE
i really love red & white together.  talk about dramatic!  i'm totally inspired.
you:  i like this one...

also HERE
except, i don't like that it says "vintage".
me:  i agree.  BUT it's the exact same color as those tiffany's boxes & you have to feel good about that.
you:  excellent point.  all of this shopping is making me hungry.
(& we're off to eat chocolate cupcakes.  why?  because it's my fantasy shopping league & i like a good chocolate cupcake. )

Thanks so much for featuring my shop! That was so sweet of you. I love the strawberry hat and the white pears too. Etsy is amazing!

kelly said...

i agree, jessica! & i'm so happy to feature your shop - your earrings are fantastic!

Mel Cable said...

ok, I love etsy too but I get totally overwhelmed and lost, how do you tackle it w/o spending hours and narrowing it down? I got a vanilla latte by the way :)

kelly said...

mmmm, vanilla latte! i haven't had one of those in a while - might need one soon...
yes, i agree about etsy being overwhelming sometimes. my best advice would be when you see something you really like, explore the shop & if you like them, "heart" them. that way you have a treasury of shops you know you like & can go to when you want something. for example, i saw jessica's shop featured on a blog & LOVED her earrings, so i "hearted" her shop & when i went to write this post, i looked @ my "hearted" shops & remembered her awesome earrings. maybe i should write a post about this...

Kel, don't you have the material that they used on the butterfly picture that you picked out? You could so make those! Clint could do the frames!
