So I've been completely addicted to Etsy.com these days. If you've never been to etsy, it's "an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade." It can be a little overwhelming if you don't have something specific to shop for (which I don't), but I've started to learn some tricks to finding the coolest holiday gift ideas (or just random things I love).
Here are some of my current favorites:
These Oregon Rustic Wildflowers earrings are so pretty and would match a lot of different outfits.
LocalLibrary has some really unique jewelry, including this wooden wings necklace.
I'm also diggin this bird necklace from Imogene and Dannie.
And of course, my favorite of all, Steve Geddes Artworks. His prints and originals are colorful and full of charm. I have several of his originals hanging in my home and think they are lovely. And best of all he's a great guy...and just happens to be my dad ; ).
I love how modern and clean these little bags are. Very sleek.
If you have a baby in your life, please buy them one of these adorable hats and then send me a picture of them wearing it. That way I can live vicariously through you since all of my nieces and nephews aren't babies anymore! These hats are made from recycled cashmere sweaters! Or maybe your coffee cup needs a sweater!
Here's a handknit adult hat that I LOVE. I personally can't wear wool near my skin because it's too itchy. : (
OMG this whole shop called Knittles is full of cuteness.
Letterpressed coasters, cute!
Okay, I'm going to have to stop before get sucked back into shopping. But I will tell you that a lot of the stuff I find comes from the "hand picked items" on the home page. They change often and are picked by other etsy.com sellers. Go support handmade!
