More Etsy Fun Finds....

Hello Ladies,
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

In my last post, I showed you a few of my latest Etsy finds, the pretty little pin cushions. Now I am showing you a few more things I have aquired over the past few weeks. I so love getting packages in the mail and I can't wait to open them.

I recently discovered the blog and Etsy shop of Elyse at Tinkered Treasures
and I instantly fell in love with her sweet, simple and cottage style handcrafted “tinkered treasures” that she has created, some from the simplest of everyday items.

The first item I purchased from Elyse was this cute little shabby birdhouse painted in the prettiest shade of pink and decoupaged with a patchwork of pretty papers. It even came with its own sweet little pink birdie.
The other thing I purchased was a set of 3 shabby cottage clips she created from simple clothes pins. They’ve been hand-painted; decoupaged with tiny bits of pretty floral scrapbook papers and have even had some pretty bling added to them. These will be perfect either in my home office used as clips to hold papers together or maybe in the kitchen. I might even look for some tiny magnets to add to them so that I can keep them hanging on the refrigerator to hold photos, shopping lists, etc.

Thanks Elyse for sharing your creativity with others and allowing the un-crafty people like me to acquire some pretty darn cute things.

That is so cute! So fresh and springtimey!

Hope you are good! I'm buried in tea roses and the NCAA basketball tournament (I watch it, not hubby).

Do you have any warm days yet?
