Four Friday Favourites

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Welcome to my second edition of “Friday Favourites” – this week I’m lising four of the items on my Etsy favourites list.

My first choice this week is this stunning Lace Noir Vintage Olga nightgown, from TiaLey Vintage.  I’ve been eyeing off this one for a while 🙂  Almost looks like an evening dress, not a nightgown!

The next item on the list today is also a nightgown (I have a lot of these in my favourites list – wish I could afford to buy them all!).  This nightgown from Haute Country Vintage is in the most gorgeous shade of blue – I just love it!

I hope my husband is paying attention to the Christmas present hints here! 😀

Next up is this beautiful turquoise and sterling silver bracelet from Julie’s Jewels.  I love the colour of the turqouise, and I think it would go with so many outfits – you could wear it with casual or more dressed-up clothes.

Last, but most definitely not least, are these stunning Versailles earrings by feminesque.  I love the colour and the swirly shape.  The matching necklace is just as beautiful.  These are definitely one of my favourite Etsy jewellery items!

Well, that’s my Friday favourites for another week!  Please check out the stores mentioned, as they have other lovely things available too!

Friday Favourites

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

I mentioned in an earlier post that I am addicted to Etsy – not just selling my artwork there, but buying things.  I’ve decided to do a new weekly feature on my blog called “Friday Favourites”, where I list some of the items I have in my favourites list on etsy.

So, here is my first week’s selections!  Please check out the other items these sellers have to offer as well, and remember to support handmade!

First up is this beautiful butterfly tray from Island Girl Pottery.  It’s so pretty it’s almost a shame to cover it up with food!

These earrings from Stone Street Studio are called “Bittersweet”, but I think they’re just sweet!

More jewellery (lots of my Etsy favourites are jewellery – you can never have too much jewellery!) – I just love this Aqua Briolette necklace from The Zen Muse – although I must confess that I have no idea what Briolette means!  I think the colours is just gorgeous.

I love the combination of Science and Art, so when I saw these Jupiter earrings from Desert Artisan I fell in love with them!  (I shouldn’t really be advertising them here because I am totally buying them as soon as I have some spare cash!).  I’ve purchased from Desert Artisan before and the earrings and pendant I purchased were even prettier in real life than in the photo.

I hope you enjoyed my very first Friday Favourites!  (Yes, it’s not quite Friday yet but I won’t be able to get to a computer tomorrow and I didn’t want to wait until next week!)

Don’t forget to stop by these sellers stores to see the other lovely items they have for sale – and buy handmade this Christmas!
