As most of you know, I'm a seller on etsy.com. It's billed as "a place to buy & sell all things handmade". I'm fairly new to the whole etsy thing, and I've got about 30 items for sale, all photography. Have many of you visited etsy.com yet? Oh, my! There is a cornucopia of offerings, so much so that it boggles the mind.
Every now and then on this blog, I'd like to show you a couple of items that I find interesting, if you don't mind. The items I'll feature will be affordable and fun. (Not like my fantasy cooking apron with the exorbitantly high price tag). So let's begin with someone who just visited my blog the other day. Her comment led me to her blog , which led to me to her etsy site, which led me to actually make a purchase, which isn't really like me. I like to mull things over awhile.
Well, okay, sometimes I do.
Welcome to Boutique by Bonnie, which offers handmade jewelry featuring many items made with natural stones. The holiday earrings pictured below are a steal at only $2.00. I always wear fun little things like this to school in December.
The pendant above on the left is an oval Paintbrush Jasper on a brown suede lariat. It's only $14.00. And the cool beads are Poppy Jasper in swirls of brown, brick red and cream. This is actually one of her most expensive items, at $39.00.
Just so you know, I'm not advocating the spending of money that one does not have. I am advocating the gazing upon of pretty things, which is something I'm wont to do occasionally. And if the mood and the finances work, well then have at it.
I love saying wont to do occasionally. Just so's you know.
And with that, I'll say until tomorrow, my friends . . .
hello country girl...etsy is growing, I have had a site for maybe 4 months, it quite fun and there are some amazing items, I will check out your items soon...
I love the items you got! I need to check out Etsy....
Why? Why do you tempt me?
I like the ornament earrings...festive without being cutesy. And I like etsy too. But just window shopping for now :)
Pretty! I always love looking!
OMG! I love jewelry! I'm not going to look though. Way too broke.
love your blog, love your attitude, love your photo's. you live in a inspiring place. thanks for sharing.
They look like smart, fun purchases to me. I have been to a few Etsy shops, but I don't have one... yet*. I love the idea that you are going to showcase some.
*My son learned how to crochet this year for our home made Christmas and now he thinks he wants to sell crocheted scarves so I guess I'll be figuring out how this all works pretty soon. Gotta love that entrepreneur spirit. I think.
How is your shop doing? I hope you are having tons of success.
I love those Christmas earrings. Those are really cute. I have loved etsy for several years now. One of my favorite stores on there is Serendipity Crafts. Beautiful handmade plates and platters. You should go by and check them out sometime.
I love the holiday earrings. Pretty. I have an Etsy, too, but there's nothing for sale yet. Eventually smocked garments will be available there. :)
I never knew about Etsy until I started blogging and saw a link to it on Willow's blog. I am getting ready to post some stuff on there as we speak. I'm so glad to have found it!
Thanks for the heads up on the lovely Etsy items... a girl can get lost in Etsy so it's nice to have someone point us to some of the finer things it has to offer.

The stuff on etsy is amazing - I try to cehck there first if I am looking for a gift. I love those little ornament earrings!
There are such beautiful things on etsy. Even if you can't buy but just look, it's always inspiring. :)
I love shopping at Esty ... however most of the time shipping is almost as expensive as the item I want ... sorry to be a grouch ...
I love Etsy. Both of my daughters have bought stuff for me on there.
these are such lovely pieces, Kate. but at the moment, I am avoiding temptation!
Oh, have to tell you...found a bargain of a bargain for my mantel...will post about it.
and...I left you an award on my blog!
I LOVE those earrings. I think they would suit me, don't you? Thank goodness I got rid of my credit cards. *heh*
Nice stuff, I love looking at the jewels!
I'm wont to do a lot of window looking as I am wont to be without money.
Thank you so much for the beautiful write up on your blog! I hope you are enjoying your necklace.
