Etsy/Folksy finds

I love browsing Etsy (and Folksy) for beautiful, hand crafted items for myself or as gifts - here's my favourites this month.

This cute bird necklace is from The Dandelion Jewelry, a Madrid based etsy seller. I love the simple silver colour and the bird is so sweet - this is the perfect gift for a girl who loves necklaces! Unfortunately this particular necklace is out of stock but she has a few others, herehere and here as well as some other beautiful pieces.

I don't have a kindle yet but I hope to get one for Christmas. This cover is beautiful, bright and exotic! There are many ereader covers on both Folksy and Etsy but this is the one I like the most. It's from Service Partner, an American etsy seller. She makes lots of different ereader covers and even offers a design your own service!

As you can tell, when furnishing my home and buying objects I like to go for the pretty, girly option. This cushion from My Blue Shed is no exception! I love the colours and the design of it. I must say, I'm also quite taken by this wonderful Union Jack cushion too, how wonderfully patriotic and kitsch!

Memory boards are quite an interesting idea - basically, you slip in things you want to display (like photographs, gig tickets, rail tickets, drawings) underneath the ribbon without needing pins so you don't get holes in them. This blue rose design board is from Kays Krafts, a Texan seller who has literally hundreds of different boards for sale with something that will suit any personality - from those who like to stand out from the crowd to the simple and elegant among us!

This handmade Victorian style lace choker is probably my favourite find out of the whole post. It's so elegant and beautiful that I can't help but love it! De Poppenkraal is a Dutch shop (I hope I've spelt the shop name right!) that specialises in authentic gothic jewellery pieces. She has some incredible items up such as these gothic skeleton cameo earrings and this lace bracelet (which would look great in white with the choker!)

And finally, for this brief overview of all things handmade, is this wonderful Mac laptop decal with a quote from one of my favourite movies on - Moulin Rouge. The Decals Home sell a wide variety of quotes, pictures, and graphics for iPads, Mac laptops, walls and even cars - the only problem with this product is I don't have a Mac laptop!

  1. Love your Etsy and Folksy finds - and the fact that you've been trawling Folksy. I think I'm as guilty as the next person of forgetting about the UK specific option. As for that decal - I'm supposed to be getting a new Mac for Christmas... and now I shall be thinking about it all day! #loveapplemac ;)
