So many of the items on Etsy aren’t handmade. Though thats where I sell my stuff, a lot of the really awesome stuff on Etsy can be found in the Vintage section of Etsy. My latest obsession with the vintage stuff started a little while back when I found these glasses, and had to have them. We were in the market for plastic cups…so I found some. Some of the other awesome cups I found are below, in addition to a few other items I may require. I’m feeling a bit lazy this Etsy Tag Monday, so if you want to know more about the item, just click thru!
Where has my time gone? Its been a while since I’ve done an Etsy Tag Monday, and I’m guessing its part in fact to my busy planning schedule with a wedding coming up in less than 20 days!! So in typical “this is the season where everyone should be celebrating ME” fashion, my bachelorette party was this past weekend, and I had the best time. We did a quick one night stay in Calistoga, CA., where we sunbathed, took in a mud bath, went dancing, and just generally acted like a ridiculous bunch of girls. So much fun. With that, even though I know its after the fact, I decided to dedicate todays Etsy Tag Monday to last weekend…and it is Bachelorette.
Check it under the cut! (more…)
Father’s Day is steadily approaching, and I have been in the market for a gift for mine. I figured something handmade might be nice, and since I make Wunzees for infants, my handmade expertise isn’t for the right generation. I found some great handmade dad-like stuff on Etsy today, and thought I’d share my searches with you. I didn’t search a particular tag…just found stuff I thought dads would like. You can click on the image to get you to the store.
Mmmm…delicious delicious coffee…how I love thee. Apparently I didn’t have enough yesterday, because this long overdue Etsy Tag Monday post, is going out on a Tuesday. Shhh…just look at the stuff and enjoy. Don’t tell anyone I’m a day late and a coffee cup short.
What better way to start your day than with a cup of coffee out of some awesome vintage mugs?
Or how about this set of three owl mugs? I know a few people out there who might grab these up fast.
And now for my splurge. Sure its a bit pricer than what I normally post…but isn’t it GORGEOUS? How cool would it be to have this vintage cart as a coffee table! Brand Mojo Interiors has some beautiful vintage pieces.
Man…I realize I havent done an Etsy Tag Monday in weeks!! So sorry… I guess I’ve just been busy planning. Less than 4 months till I get married!
So another color we have chosen to incorporate into our wedding is green. I’ve been having a tough time when I tell people what shade. Sometimes I think its apple…sometimes it turns to kelly, other times more of an emerald…so I’m not going to be too surprised when I have a few show up at the wedding. Its fine…I’ll embrace the color.
The second color in our wedding is Orange. Bright, summery, and currently one of our favorite colors…Hence…Etsy Tag Monday: Orange! Short and sweet…lets get to it!
We have four colors for our wedding. All of them are bright and bold and perfect for a summer wedding. I have decided that for the next few weeks, my Etsy Tag Monday will be using the colors, but specifically in the wedding category. The first of the four is RED. I figure while I’m browsing for the little details for my wedding, I might as well share them with you! I’ve included a few more items than I usually do…it was so hard to choose!
Crafty Crew makes this Crafted Ash Wood Wedding Wishes Address File Box. I think that this would be a great way to have your guests leave a little note and to collect their addresses in the process. Its pretty too!
Though it has a greater history that goes back over centuries, for me and many others, the fleur-de-lis is often associated with areas formerly settled by France, such as Quebec, St. Louis, Louisville, and Louisiana.I know that there are a few things that I always associate it with, so that is why there are so many reasons to choose the Fleur de lis as my tag today. 1) I’m super excited about my upcoming first time visit to NOLA for Jazz Fest in April. 2)The Saints won the Superbowl! and 3) Fat Tuesday is tomorrow, and its Mardi Gras time!!
Bmused has an amazing collection of belt buckles, some with more apparent Fleur de lis than this one, but I am seriously considering this one for my collection. I like the muted pattern and color pallate.
Did you know that they have added new conversation hearts to the mix to keep up with the times? This year’s sweet nothings from Sweethearts candy hearts includes an order to “tweet me.” Not sure how I feel about changes, especially with such a classic candy.
For me, the conversation heart is like a fortune cookie. They are fun to have and read, but I’m not sure how I feel about the taste. They do however always remind me of Valentines Day, and will always be a part of my gift giving during the holiday. I thought it was appropriate, for the Monday before Valentines Day, to have my Etay Tag : Conversation heart.
