If you haven't been shopping on Etsy, you're really missing out! I've recently become addicted and am now obsessively browsing the site for everything from jewellery to cool homewares every spare minute!
I could (and have!) spend hours on Etsy every day, there's thousands of sellers from countries all over the world that create beautiful and unique products. We have a really strong Irish representation on Etsy with shops like xChupi, Poppy & Ivy Studios and CloverRua going from strength to strength.
If I was let loose I would spend all of my money here but because I am trying to practice some kind of restraint I started with a few purchases (and about 20 more items waiting in my basket!).
I'm curently on a decorating mission and one thing I really, really wanted to add to my living room were palm print cushions and I found them very quickly in a super cute Etsy shop called Pillomatic. They have all kinds of amazing designs so if you are on the hunt for cushions, I highly recommend you check them out!
Because of a bit of a disaster involving the Irish Sea and my wedding ring floating away (picture something like a scene from Titanic) I've been replacing my wedding rings for a while now with different temporary options. It will never be that ring and I was never totally happy with my choices but I have found these super thin stackable rose gold bands from a seller called Hannah Naomi who makes gorgeous delicate jewellery! I want pretty much everything from her shop! I will definitely be ordering more rings from her and am going to replace my current rose gold wedding ring situation with one of her solid gold offerings.
Last but not least I have bought some calligraphy practice sheets. My goal for this year is to learn some new skills and calligraphy is top of the list at the moment. The great thing about these practice sheets is that they are an instant download so you don't even have to wait for delivery. There's lots of options but I got mine from a shop called The Postmans Knock - I just loved the style of writing!
Currently there are 10 other things in my shopping cart, including some Chupi goodies, photography art prints and a marble cover for my Macbook!
Have you ever shopped on Etsy & if so, what did you buy? Let me know!
