Things I love...

Here are a few things I love. They are romantic, whimsical, sweet, beautiful and some of them are downright unpractical. That's okay though: Enjoy! (Click on the photo to go to the Etsy shop!)

I found these cuffs on Etsy by JezebelCharms. The cuffs are made out of brass and are printed with quotes and photos. Love, love, love!

If you have been around me lately, you know I have a thing for birds. One day while in Michael's I saw these cute, antique-looking ceramic birds. On the display they had said birds perched on top of old, worn out books. Thus began my obsession with the whimsical little creatures.

This lariat necklace features a twig and sparrow and is different and beautiful! 

This photo took my breath away. It makes me long for the ocean. I don't know why but there is something nostalgic about sea oats.

I also wanted to feature one of my dear friend's Etsy shop. She doesn't have anything for sale but I know she makes the most gorgeous paper roses. To all the guys that read this blog, I urge you to order your wife a dozen or so of these beautiful roses. They are shabby/cottage-chic. I have two sitting on the buffet in my dining room and they add an understated beauty to the room. She can make them in any color and even...wait for pages!!!! Eeek! I swoon over anything book related.

Edit: I can't believe that I forgot about my own sis-in-love's etsy shop!!!! Guys...she is such a talented painter among other things. I couldn't decide which painting I loved best so I will post both of them.


What's your favorite Etsy shop? Have you bought anything from Etsy?


  1. I agree about sea oats. And I love the paper roses. Oooh book pages! Has Alisha made any roses from pages?? That's a lovely idea.

    I really like this Etsy shop. :-)

    And I've ordered from this one:

  2. Oooh! I do need to feature Rachels shop!!!! I love love love her art!
    And she of the roses I have was made from a book page :)

  3. that blue-lavender swirly painting may be my favorite one of hers!
