Etsy Goodies

I can't wait to share with you the goodies that I purchased from some of my sweet blog friends' Etsy stores last week.

First up is this sweet pillow that I first spotted on Dee's blog, A Lapin Life, and begged asked her if I could buy it.  I snatched it up literally the second it became available on her store.

It arrived lightening fast nicely wrapped with some extra goodies I wasn't even expecting (thanks Dee!).

I wasted no time putting it in it's special place next to my tree.

I got this little black chair from a townwide yardsale last year for $2.  It's usually up in Cole's nursery with a big teddy on it, but I borrowed one of Amy's American Girls dolls and put it next to my Christmas tree in the Living Room.

Dee has lots of other sweet things on her Etsy store, so be sure to swing by and take a peek.

Next up is the amazing Shenita's store of Embellishments By SLR.  I doubt there is a soul in blogland who hasn't visited this blog and seen Shenita's gorgeous home.  Words can't even describe!  Shenita is so talented and the arrangements she has displayed throughout her home are out of this world.  Just take a look at this piece of sheer fabulousity!

I browsed her Etsy store and the second I spotted this sweet little creamer I knew it had to be mine.

How cute is this??  I just love the decorative lid and the etching on the front.  I added it to the vintage silver pieces I have scattered around my kitchen hutch and stuck some old butter knives inside.

Also from Shenita's store I bought this lovely pillar candle for my Family Room.

I had a huge candleholder that I got at a yardsale last Spring and I knew this pillar would be perfect for it with the large ornate gold cross and cheetah print ribbon.

Love it!

Shenita also took great measures to make sure these things were packaged just right and it shipped within 24 hours!

Thanks again to these two wonderful ladies and their kindness in sending these items to me so quickly.  I can't wait to do some more Etsy shopping!

Oh you have snagged some lovelies. The pillow is so cute with the little AG doll. We have lots of those in the attic but what a cute way to display them. I could pick out some of their Christmas outfits and how cute would that be. Your creamer is divine. Great patina. I cannot even remember the name of that paint (in my kitchen) but I will see if we still have the can in the garage and get back to you.
