Tuesdays Treasure Trove…late sorry!!

Autumn is upon us as we speak!  For the next few months  I am devoting all of my postings to this season.  For it is a fabulous season that deserves all of the attention and respect it can get.  Today’s treasure trove will be all about the gorgeous autumn finds that you can wear from some amazing Etsy shops.  Take a look and see what I mean by gorgeous!

Fall In Love - Silk Rosette Headband Retro/Vintage Style - FALL 2010 Collection

This is an amazing silk rosette headband made by Frosting Couture Shop’s Fall Collection, they can be found on Etsy.  The rosettes are attached to a thin flexible metal headband that are sure to be comfortable and add pizzazz to any Fall outfit!  Please go check out their shop and see for yourself the other great things they have to offer.

Autumn Acorn and Oak Leaf Necklace

Here we have this delicate Acorn and Oak Leaf necklace with a fine silver plated chain 18” long.  The focal part of this piece is the stunning deep chestnut brown faceted glass round that is capped by a curly edged oak leaf in antiqued silver.  Tell me you don’t want this in your jewelry box?  This is a stunning piece of art and Etsy shop Sparkle Peach  out did themselves when they created this.  See what other beautiful pieces they have in their shop.



FABULOUS bag, being somewhat of a bag connoisseur myself, this is a great bag!  I can’t say I would turn down a Coach bag but I love handmade bags because they are unique and not readily available to everyone on the planet!  This bag is just that, unique!  The leaves are painted onto a heavy-weight khaki 100% military cotton fabric and has 9 individual organizer pockets perfect for all the needs a woman has!  Etsy shop IKA Bags worked magic when they created this bag, take look at the other bags in their shop, you are  bound to find one that will work for you!

Chocolate Mousse hand knitted lace shawl


Ok I saved my favorite piece for last..this is one breath taking lacey shawl!  The amount of work that went into this is to be commended.  This piece was knitted with an Estonian traditional stitch pattern in a chocolate mousse colored luxurious Italian yarn.  That is as light as air and sure to be very soft and warm.  Etsy shop Dagny Knit has a special talent that was worth sharing with everyone, see for yourself the delicate work they do. 

That is all for today, please check back next week to see what treasures I have discovered for you to ooo and ahh over!

Whimsical Wednesdays…

My first featured shop for this weeks Whimsical Wednesday is a fabulous little shop that makes these great pendants.  Keeping with the theme of Autumn for the next few months this shop fits right in.  Take a look at how cute these Autumn and Halloween pendants are, totally adorable! 

Season of Change-Fall Leaves Haunted House Tile Pendant A Batty Night Out
Purple Passion Flower Tile Pendant Fall Splendor Wood Tile Pendant Oh Christmas Tree
Candy Corn Wood Tile Pendant Vintage Happy Halloween Tile Pendant Vintage Halloween Tile Pendant
Next is this great photography shop that has all these rustic images of rocking chairs, old barn doors, cowboy boots and vintage cars.  These images all remind me of Autumn in the sense that they are depicting summer being over and a time seasons changing.  The colors may not be bright and vibrant like the traditional colors we think of as Autumn, but they certainly fit into the category of the season.

Fantastic Friday Finds…

Today’s Fantastic Friday Finds is going to be all about “BACK TO SCHOOL” yes I said it, back to school which for parents is just like saying  woooo hoooo!!  All kidding aside, we all know we love and cherish our babies no matter what they do (even if it is cutting your bed skirt and blaming the cat! yes true story!), so we know that it will take some special things to get them back to school in style and working order.  Take a look at these great Etsy finds I discovered!  You can’t go wrong with handmade!


Insulated Lunch Bag - Back to School Pea Pods

What a great insulated lunch bag from Julie Meyer’s Etsy shop, not only is it insulated but its so fashionable.  Kind of makes me want to go back to school just so I can have one myself!   You should see for yourself all of the great bags she has there, if you don’t see one you like just ask her to make one specifically for you!

believe - a set of 10 washi-coated pencils

I love this idea personally!  These are the greatest pencils, so adorable and they look very sturdy.  I know my daughter would absolutely love them.  Maoiliosa did a great job, you really need to go over to their Etsy shop and see what other great finds are there.  They have more than just pencils!

Polka Dot Canvas Large Backpack

Now here is a useful and stylish backpack.  Who wouldn’t want to carry this around cute backpack?  I know my kids are picky but my daughter would definitely carry this!  Etsy shop Lets Play All Day, out did themselves!  They have such a great array of other fabrics to choose from, there is bound to be something everyone will like.  Go check them out!

Orangey Compostion

Everyone needs a composition book, even me…I can’t live without a notebook of some sort on me at all times.  Kids are no different, this is a definite staple in the back to school supplies.  Etsy shop Red Otter has done a great job with these notebooks, they have a ton of things in their shop just waiting for the right  person to come along and grab them, so go take a look I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

That’s all I have for today’s Fantastic Friday Finds, come back next week and see what else I have found!  Enjoy your weekend everyone!
