A little love.

While my budgeting went awry this month (combined with next month's taxes due), I've been scouring Etsy for gifts and cards for friends, gifts (although the last few that I purchased from Etsy for D have been fails) and other projects.  My favorites list is getting so big that I can't even keep track of what shops I have on there.  I wanted to share a collection of what I've really been loving lately though.


Even though I don't eat bacon anymore, I don't deny the deliciousness of it.  I think this print from The Word Shop would be perfect on my gallery wall.  It would be an addition that I know D would be happy about.


With my 12 months of giving list in mind, I've been on the hunt for cool, different cards.  While I love all of the stationary from Row House 14, I especially love these geometric triangles!  And it's personalized!


I'm so obsessed with everything over at Crafts and Love that I couldn't pick one thing.  This colorful stretchy bracelet would be perfect for layering.  There is nothing I think more special than someone picking out something specific to be stamped on one of these customized brass cuffs; what a perfect gift.  And I just can't get over the beautiful necklaces!


Considering that two of my three tattoos involve animals (as is the next one), I have somewhat of an obsession with animals.  Little known fact :: I used to want to be a vet when I grew up.  I even volunteered at our local vet when I was in...5th grade?!  While foxes are extremely popular right now, Fox holds a special place in my heart.  As do feathers.  River Luna has done it all perfectly.  I definitely want this fox print to add to our gallery wall.  I'm obsessed with all of her feather art.

What are some of your Etsy favorites lately?  I'm coming to find that the only products I can trust may be prints & cards sadly...

Prints and cards aren't the only good things on Etsy! I order handmade eyeshadow all the time! And lip balms and soaps and jewelry. (I love the jewelry!) Girl, go look up my Etsy account and check out my faves. (they're public, so you can see them all.) I've even ordered cookies from Etsy and they were amazing.

Aw, such great finds! I tend to like teaching stuff (they have cute teacher gifts that I always wish someone would buy me), and jewelry. :)

Oh god, my budgeting has gone seriously to pot recently too- to the point that I'm going to start withdrawing a set amount of money each week and not spending more than that I think!!! Lovely picks though, they are all amazing!! x
