Those Most Remarkable Etsy Sellers

Well, the littlest one is fully recovered and I am enjoying my first day to myself after a good weeks' worth of being battened down. I did end up making some good use of my lazy time at home, though. I shopped like I had threatened I would. Shopped online, in my most comfortable slippers and pjs, on my couch, with the littlest one watching a little disney. And it's almost excusable, isn't it? After four days of cabin fever. But who could resist these little treasures?I warned you in my previous post that I was inspired by rosehip's pillowcases (scroll down to dec. 5th for the full impact of wonderful). And after searching on Etsy, I came across some gorgeous bits of vintage trim. These are by BumberShootSupplies and yes they came on the wooden spools with vintage buttons and brooch holding them in place. And no I don't know if I bought them for the trim or the spools or the brooch. I don't know. The long ecru piece in the back was from WillowGlassSupplies and was wrapped in the lovely bit of green calico fabric.
I have some more pieces coming as well...one's from France. France! That makes it international or---french, which makes it, well, much more sophisticated, of course. Um, I mean, bien sur.

And speaking of Etsy sellers, amazing crafty generous--etsy sellers, you must check out CraftHope for Haiti. I have a link over there to the right as well. Their shop has accepted donated items from all the generous etsy crafters and is selling them with 100% of the proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti. The response has been overwhelming for them according to their blog, crafthope.com, raising $7000.00 within the first 48 hours.

As if we needed a reason to shop on etsy...but it's a pretty good reason!
