I don’t know what prehistoric rock I just crawled out from under, but I’ve become enamored with a new website. My husband’s reply when he heard about my find, “Uh oh.”
Etsy.com is on online schmorgisboard of all things handmade. You might remember from earlier posts, one of my favorite things is delighting in what others have invested time and work into creating.
I spent over an hour yesterday looking for a gift for my college friend (read her story here) as a congratulations for the birth of her twins. The baby hats and booties are so irresistible. I actually had to stop and remind myself that we are “done” having children. Etsy.com is that powerful.
Next, I plan to look for some unique brown-colored earrings to match a dress I bought for a wedding we’re attending in August. Too much fun!
Just a note: I’m about the most frugal person you’ll come across, so while I drool over all the wonderfully made items (oh, that artwork!) I’m mainly doing just that, admiring the ingenuity that radiates throughout Etsy.com. It really is like raindrops on roses for me.
Have you visited? If so, what did you think? If not, why are you still reading this?
Check out what I wrote about lovable pets over here later today.
