I'm Addicted.......

Oh, Oh, I think I have a problem.................

I've become addicted to Etsy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since I've started blogging, I have discovered so many wonderful bloggers who create and sell their beautiful crafts on Etsy. Now, I'm finding so many pretty things that I want to buy. Some of the things that I would love to buy are sadly out of my budget of which I need to watch very closely, but luckily, there are still lots of affordable goodies out there just calling my name and asking me to bring them home.

My latest aquisitions came from Debbi at "Marionberry Cottage" http://www.marionberrycottage.com/. She has so many beautiful things to choose from that I had such a hard time deciding what to buy myself as a little Valentines Day treat, but these are the 2 items I finally decided on.

The first is a pretty pink rose lingerie/laundry bag that is just so pretty. The colors are gorgeous. Not sure where it will end up in my house, but I am thinking most likely in my office. It will look very cute hanging from the handle of one of my closet doors and it will give me something pretty to lack at when I am busy working at home. So much nicer than the ugly cubicle walls I look at on the days I work in the office.


Here's a close up shot showing the beautiful detail and colors of the roses....

The second item is a pretty Valentine hanging pillow made with two different rose fabrics, lace and a victorian lady graphic image... Not being the best photographer in the world, I had a hard time getting really clear picture of the hanging pillow, but you can still see just how pretty it is...


Debbi's service was excellent and I received the items within 4 days of placing my order. If you haven't discovered Debbi's Etsy shop, you must meander on over there and take a look at all the goodies she has to offer. If you're anything like me, you may have a hard time keeping yourself from buying a few goodies of your own.

Enjoy the rest of your day and the upcoming weekend. If you've stopped by for a visit, leave me a comment so I will know that you've been here.

Oh, those are so pretty. I really like the little pillow. I briefly went over and visited Debbi's shop, but will have to take a better look at it when I have a little more time!

I think you have some beautiful temptation there. I just love the hanging pillow. I guess I am going to have to see what is going on in the etsy shops.

Debbi said...

((((Kim)))) thanks so much for the kudos! I love to create, and sweet comments like yours make me stay at it!
Actually I have way more on my website http://marionberrycottage.com than on etsy, but I love the etsy community, so I always list a few things there too.

Hello Kim,

I found your blog by reading your comment on Rose Vine Cottage Two. You and I have similar taste; I really enjoyed all your treasures. I especially like your chair you bought for $5.00. Good job! Very nice pillow; I believe I will go to the Etsy shop you mentioned and check out her things.

Hi Shabby Kim, I just found you and you all ready made it to my bookmarks. I so enjoyed reading about your books, I wrote a few of them down to see if I could find them. I have so many books and can spend hours just looking at them.
I guess you could call me Shabby Sharon.....
