Etsy Favorite-#1

My first Etsy seller that I would like to post about is - sTuckinthecoop! She has been a fav of mine for awhile because she has really awesome jewelry! I decided last week that I would start with her shop, and the next day she became the featured seller on Etsy's homepage! How funny is that! Congrats to her, I feel she deserves it as she has a great product! Here are a few of my favorites:

This is a pretty and fun little necklace-

This one is so neat and could be personalized for so many things-

Please check out her shop and support her and other Etsy sellers! Support handmade!

Update post

I am not doing very good about posting on this blog! It's too easy to forget and too easy to ignore. Maybe I should have made that my new year's resolution! Anyway...
I have Valentine's cards up in my Etsy shop. I am loving them. I've never been big on making cards, but I think I have found my groove. For one thing the reds and pinks are really inspiring me. And, for some reason I just have tons of ideas floating around in my head! Hoping to add a few more before the holiday is here. If you want something different then what I have for sale, don't be afraid to contact me! Either here on the blog, or through my Etsy shop on the conversation page. Here's a pic of the latest one I have added. I think it's my fav so far!

I also want to point out that Josta & Co. started their own blog recently. Please be sure to check them out on there and on Etsy. Hopefully they will be using their blog to share family stories and ideas about their jewelry making. It will be fun to see how it progresses for them!

And, finally, my latest idea. I am wanting to feature an Etsy shop/seller here on my blog probably twice a week. I think for now I will showcase some of my favs and some of my fav items and go from there. Possibly in the future I will make it a bigger thing. Maybe including interviews and links to their other sites if they have any. Not sure, still kind of playing with this idea. But, please check back and check out the other Etsy sellers and their handmade goodies.

Table Linens

I've put up some vintage table linens in my Etsy shop. These are some things that I had collected over the years. Some are in good condition and some are a little poor. But, all of them have gorgeous hand embroidery work on them or lace tatting. Lovely pieces to use as is, or to incorporate into other pieces. These are listed individually but I will sell as a lot if interested. Please contact me through email or on my Etsy if you want to know more! Thanks for checking them out.

Keep your eye out for the Valentines cards! I have them done, just need to get them listed!

Good stuff in my store

I have added a couple of bookmarks to my (Etsy) shop! Working on more of these so if you don't see something you like, keep checking back! As always, if you want something custom made, just let me know.
I'm in the middle of some handmade Valentine's cards too. Should have those up for sale in a day or two.
Thanks for checking in!
