Latest Etsy Purchases...

Since I've gotten more involved with Etsy, I've been doing more shopping! Obviously, the things I bought aren't up for sale anymore, but you should still check out the amazing shops they came from.

I was checking out a blog I love and saw these beads one day. Well, I'm not sure how I'm going to use them, but I'm determined to do it. I think the vintagey wood texture will look amazing next to something needle-felted and fuzzy.

So, I bought those today. They're from Etsy seller Jewelee who sells beads, yes, but also makes/sells amazing jewelry pieces you'd never expect with beads like this.

And I bought something else today, but that was a gift; I'll have to wait until it's been received to post it...

 A couple days ago, I was putting together the treasury I posted about, and selfishly bought something I found instead of including it! I was searching for "aqua" (the beads are also aqua... my color lately?) and found this gorgeous piece:

It's so Gatsby! Can't you just see Daisy or Jordan wearing this on the hottest day of the year? It came from a treasure trove of a vintage shop called GreenEyesVintage. If you ask me, that is the perfect name for the shop--aren't you already jealous that I snapped up this gem? There are amazing deals here, too. Check out her Under $10 section!

This last item is one I bought a little while ago, but absolutely needs a mention. I bought it for my husband as a congratulations present for starting his PhD in philosophy. Yay, Nathan! It comes from a shop called JamJamTees, where a Canadian husband and wife team designs tees with a truly ingenious sense of humor. Did I mention I love Canada? I do. I grew up in Northern Minnesota, so it's almost the same thing, without affordable health care or Crunchie candy bars. But I digress. The tee--Ready? Get set? Laugh!

Well, that's today's installment of my Etsy shopping addiction. Goodnight, folks!


  1. Thank you so much for your purchase and your blog feature of Jeweleee! You are so kind! xoxo

  2. Anne-Marie- I love the blog posts! Also, where did you grow up? I'm from Minnesota-- and born in northern Minnesota. Small world! Anyway, I had a great time the other evening at the opening. Cheers!

  3. Thanks, Karissa! I can't believe you're also from MN--my family is from central Minnesota (Albany) and I grew up in Grand Rapids, which is about half-way between Duluth and Fargo/Moorhead. How about you, than? ;)
