Now I'm dreaming of an Etsy Christmas ~
and a mini giveaway!

Do you ever just stroll on Etsy.com? OMGoodness, there is so much wonderfulness (is this a word?) there....I've been thinking how fun it would be to just have a big ol' gift certificate to the website for Christmas!! Here's a sampling of some goodies I found:


Have you ever seen such precious little shoes? I know that the book is written in Japanese but I still am in love with it! Book for sale at the Felt Cafe on Etsy~







And these beautiful hand crocheted booties are from a sweet Georgia girl ~ just look at her detailed handiwork....for sale at Lynn's Lovelies on Etsy ~





This jewelry has the. look. I. LOVE! It has such an old world feel but still so feminine ~ I had to show you several photos of her items.....Vintage Inspired Jewelry by Gingeroni1 on Etsy ~












And speaking of crocheting ~ I've discover this wonderful pattern designer for these crocheted accents. Don't they look wonderful and cozy?? Someone come sit down on my sofa with me and let's make these together!! Take a look at all of her beautiful patterns at Bella McBride on Etsy ~







I did it again....I subscribed to the new Food Network magazine for my husband who cooks like a dream and it didn't come and it didn't come SO....I bought it.


Guess what came today....the magazine!! So now that I have two, I'd love to give one copy away...just comment on THIS POST until Monday night at 6:00 pm and I'll draw a name to send my extra issue to!! I may add a few more goodies to the package as well!!


Wishing you a relaxing, cozy Saturday!!

xxoo, Dawn

Thanks for the Etsy pics! It is a fun place to visit. I could get lost there easily! The pie on the cover of that magazine looks delicious! :)

Hi Dawn... I haven't been on etsy ... will go there this evening.... Enjoying your posting as always. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Betty said...

Dawn- One day I must steal you away to Smyrna to the Japanese book store. Oh, do I ever get in trouble there!! lol And I will come and crochet those lovelies with you. Wow! They are beautiful.
I laughed at the toad-flavored eggs. I haven't noticed any difference when the girls eat slugs and snails, or crickets, or cock roaches from under the pine trees, so I think they will be ok. Now, if one comes out with legs or something, that's a different story! lol

sherry smyth said...

My name is Sherry and I am an etsy-holic. Yes. I. Am. I spend way too much time there pouncing and browsing and curating treasuries...Gingeroni is one of my favourite shops!!

What a fabulous idea for a giveaway Dawn!

And that's SO Murphy's Law about the magazine...it always happens as soon as you purchase it -- the subscription arrives! Bon apetite!!

Pat Winter said...

Oh my goodness....I don't crochet, and I want those blue cuffs so badly!!!! I thought they were already made and was gong to buy them but................
Would you or someone you know sell me a set????? I have paypal. If not, I understand, but I really love these and must search the web for them. Your blog is very interesting!!!!
Smiles,
Pat

Becky said...

Hi Dawn, Oh Yes, Etsy is great isn't it? I now spend more on there than I make. But I love it.
And WOW! this looks scrumptious. I've never heard of this magazine. I'd love to check it out. Ina is my favorite on food Network. I've tried many of her recipes. Please add me to your drawing.

Smiles,
Becky

Love the things that you've found at Bella's. Makes me wish that I were handy with a crochet hook.

The jewelry is wonderful, too. I think that these more unique gifts are the way to go this year.

Thanks!

Enjoy your weekend!!!

I could spend hours on etsy! I have so many sellers there saved to my faves.
Your snowman ornament is gorgeous! I'd love to win him so I could give him to my mom for Christmas. She's a snowman addict and would appreciate that he's handmade even more. Thanks for the chance to win!

The Joy of Nesting said...

Hey Cutie,

Here's a giggle. After Pat W saw the wrist warmers on your post she hunted down Bella's site. Then when she found out they were the patterns only she found Bella and comissioned her to make a pair;c) The sad thing is that I want a pair also but just when do I think I'm going to be able to wear them???

Pattie :c)

Hello Dawn, Etsy has so many neat things...I purchase from there as well. There is just never enough time to do all the things we want to.

I would love to be included into your drawing. I have heard about the Food Network Mag. but have never seen one upclose and your little Snowfolk ornament, so very sweet. He is the icing on the cake...so to speak.

Thank you so much for your generosity and I will keep my fingers crossed.

Hugs,
~Tonya

Good morning, Dawn. I buy duplicates of magazines sometimes too--especially when the covers are so tempting and I can't remember if my subscription has ran out or not. Thanks for your generosity in sharing---I also love the little snowman ornament. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I'm the lucky winner. You are so creative and I just love checking in on your blog every single day. Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
