5 Favorite Handmade Finds

Etsy is my favorite place (: A magical wonderland filled with handmade goodies from all over the world. For those of you who are new to Etsy, it's so worth checking out! Their mission is to offer a marketplace for all things handmade enabling people to earn a living making things and to reconnect makers with buyers. With approximately 170,000 shops worldwide you can come back over and over again and never see the same thing twice! With the holiday season fast approaching it's the perfect place to shop!

Here are a few of my favorite handmade finds that might help you begin your holiday shopping...

This lovely pendant designed by Color Shop Stained Glass Studio reminds me of an elegant stained glass window in a grand Victorian. A must for the 5 favorites list! It's made with iridized amber glass and handcrafted using the copper foil method and Silver Lead Free Solder.

Oh so cute and one of a kind from Sewn Natural! These baby gnome dolls are handcrafted of all natural and upcycled fibers that are durable and natural. Any one of them would make a perfect friend for your little one. With a vintage vibe, they are carefully crafted with beautiful details. Safe for baby or a wonderful treat for an older child.

Village Clayworks has a wonderful collection of pottery inspired by nature and this bowl is one of my favorites (: Teal is my color so I couldn't pass this one by, but there are so many fun pieces making it hard to choose just one!

Who doesn't remember playing bingo as a kid? Seems the vintage cards have more style and function than the mass produced ones of today. Bring the magic of years past to the present with these whimsical sketchbook journals from Soma Venus!

Lirola is one of my favorite designers and this top just makes my heart sing! Pair it with a long sleeve black top and it's warm and cozy for the winter, but then when summer rolls around this top doesn't have to leave the closet because of the short ruffle sleeves! So versatile yet so chic.
