Grateful Day 5 (E)

I
love Etsy.com.  It is full of the most wonderful, handmade &
vintage treasures a girl could hope for.  Audra introduced it to me
last year when she gave me a hand felted bear ornament.  I thought
I had better check this place out...& now I'm totally
addicted.  It's kinda like ebay for crafters, but you don't
bid...you pay what they list the price as.  And there are such
treasures to be found!  Here are a few of mine over the past year:

The little birdie
ended up being from the UK.  One of the cool things about Etsy is
that these treasures are from all over the world.  And I had no
idea until my little deer arrived from Turkey...yep, Turkey...and she is my most favorite thing ever.  And then there's the vintage butterfly that I got from my friend Rachel's Esty shop which I totally love.  Oh, and my signed Kelly Rae Roberts wall canvas...love that too! 

Audra
& I were listing our Esty purchases & realized that we quite
enjoy purchasing from Etsy.  And I personally, love receiving gifts
from it, too!  I have a beautiful camera strap, a quaint little
bowl & some fabulous little blue felted acorns...oh my!

It's a site full of inspiration!

    better than eBay, and cheaper. Love the handmade christmas ornaments.
