As far as etsy is concerned, (and really jewelry in general) my motto is,
"Don't buy anything you could make yourself"
I recently received 2 goodies in the mail that I most certainly could NOT have made for myself...
I've been going back and forth for quite some time now between getting a bag from Moop or drikab - both FABULOUS purveyors of loverly bags on etsy. Though I'm sure I'll get myself a moop bag at some point (like perhaps an adjustable strap market bag in some shade of rust???) I finally decided that dirkab would be first. I snagged one of her weekender bags - half orange tiles, half grey wool. I LOVE it but I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to fill-'er-up yet! I think when I do, I'll do a "what's in your bag?" post... (I'm almost as curious about what people carry around in their purses as I am about how they decorate their homes!)
The second item is from one of my ALL TIME FAVOTRITE etsyians... Ms. Iris of radcow. She is my go-to-gal whenever I get the hankerin' for another piece of leather to strap around my wrist, the most recent piece to add to my collection being a woodgrain-patterned leather cuff watch. I love love LOVE it!!!
(I couldn't resist)Happily,
