Yikes! I said I was going to do a roundup of my favourite Etsy goods every month, and it's already the end of September. Umm...where did September go? I can't believe how fast time flies when you have a kid - yet another thing nobody told me before she arrived!
Here are my favourite Etsy finds this month. Trust me, I don't just throw this list together. These are actual items that I have on my favourites list and would love to have all for myself. Click on the picture to open the seller's site.
This goat watercolour print from Splodgepodge makes me smile. Doesn't he just look so smug? Goats are kind of smug though, aren't they?
Do you still read real books? And by real books, I mean the ones that are actually printed on paper and require a bookmark. If so, I bet you could use a super fun bookmark from My Bookmark. Aren't these a kick? (yes...that bad joke was totally intentional). This shop has some really fun legs including Santa legs, sexy legs and even zombie legs. Would make a great stocking stuffer....if you are organized enough to start Christmas shopping in September (I am NOT).
How about some unique gift wrap? This isn't the stuff that you find at Wal-Mart or the dollar store. This gift wrap from Placed is made in Ireland, but can be shipped anywhere. I love pretty gift wrap. And just in case I wasn't dorky enough already, when I was a kid, my Mom and I took a gift wrapping course. Ya, that's right - you are reading the words of an almost professional wrapper. It might be a bit of a splurge, but it would also look great lining a drawer (in case you haven't had the opportunity to take a wrapping course and become almost professional).
I am not a huge jewellery wearer. I usually wear my wedding ring and one other piece - either earrings or a necklace. If it's an earring and a necklace day then it's extra special. I just love this necklace from Midwest Alchemy. It's somehow simple but still complex. It's rustic but still girly. Just love.
And lastly, there are these antique letter press letters from Monki Vintage. I have to admit, I am not a huge holiday decorator. I'll get into a bit, but usually just like a few things here and there. I don't overhaul my house for autumn or Halloween. First, I don't have anywhere to store many seasonal items and second, I am just too lazy to take everything out and put it away. Honestly. But, I could totally deal with these letters. I think they'd look so cute on our little entry way table. I could maybe even deal with adding a few stretched out cotton balls for cobwebs.
So there you have it, my wish list for September. Any favourites you'd like to share? Any recent Etsy purchases?
