I'm A Naughty Girl...

I think I’ve been a little bit naughty these past few weeks!!

Having mentioned in on one of my earlier posts that I feel like I’ve become addicted to Etsy, you won’t be too surprised to learn that I’ve been doing a little Etsy shopping again. It’s a good thing Mr. Tax Man has left me with a little extra spending money in my pockets, so I’m not feeling the least bit guilty. I work very hard for my money and I deserve to treat myself to some new pretties every once in a while.

My newest favorite Etsy shop is that of Kathryn at
Our Shabby Cottage. Kathryn lives in Australia and has sewn some of the prettiest items I think I’ve ever seen. Well, that may be exaggerating a little but, but it’s pretty darn near the truth.

Even though I am not a sewer, when I saw these sweet and shabby chic pin cushions, I just knew I had to have one (or two…. LOL), knowing they would look pretty displayed in a basket. Now that I have them, I am wanting more!!

Aren’t they pretty???

I’ll show off some more of my new Etsy finds in a day or two.

For now, I will say goodbye and that I’ll be back soon. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Very VERY nice! Those are very beautiful! I can get quite used to getting things delivered in the mail; I have to really watch myself. It feels like Christmas when you get a pretty in the mail, doesn't it?

Love the pin cushions. I was out at the rehab store today and saw a couple of neat little crocheted pot holders, pink and blue, and thought of you. Hope you have a good weekend!

Well aren't you clever. I've been wanting to buy one of these pin cushions, but I don't sew, YET. Now, you've gone and done it. I don't have to learn to sew, I just need a basket and I'm set. woooohooo

Have a happy day

Those pincushions are so pretty. Since I do sew I could make my own. It is just a matter of getting to it. I have seen a couple of tutorials on how to do them, just can't remember where at the moment. I have fabric, I have stuffing all I gotta do is make one. Right?
