If etsy was a town, I’d move there

April 9, 2011

Because not only does it have all the most beautiful handmade things, it also has vintage. If you’ve been reading for a while you may have picked up that my love of vintage predates (and surpasses) even my love of craft and handmade.

A couple of weeks ago I bought this beautiful vintage coffee jug and creamer set. I just adore the smoky silver accents and the chemist’s-laboratory look they have. Definitely using these at my next dinner party.


Cutest camera case ever

camera case

I bought this from hinĂ© on Etsy recently, and was delighted that it arrived before I went to Brisbane. My camera was kept safe, dry and very, very cute. Everyone was jealous, and you know by now that’s a major factor in purchasing decisions for me.


Isn’t it adorable? It’s hand-stitched from thick felt and buttons, green on the inside and all retro-camera-cool on the outside. Yay!

I bought some beautiful earrings a couple of weeks ago from le Beau Papillon at Etsy, and they arrived this week!

all wrapped up

Beautifully packaged, aren’t they? And yes, I know there are four boxes there, but they were having a buy-one-get-one-half-price sale. And one pair is a gift. Nothing to feel guilty about, right?

I had so much fun opening those pretty little boxes, and discovered the contents were packed in turquoise tissue. One of my favourite colours.


The three pairs for me are just as gorgeous as their pictures, and of course I had to try them on straight away.


Not bad, eh? Packages always brighten my day.
