It started with the train case...ETSY

Okay, so it all started off innocently enough.  Last Christmas I purchased this vintage train case for my daughter to stash her "stuff" in, on her dresser from Victoria at Vix Vintage....before that I had just dabbled on the ETSY site.  
Then it was like the heavens opened with the angels singing.

My ETSY obsession had begun.  Now I have not purchased hundreds of items on there, BUT I have purchased things that I love and appreciate, either for their craftsmanship or their vintage throwback ability. 
Here are just a few with a link to the shops:
Becky from TimeWashed is my buddy.  She and I hit it off and I love her attention to detail. She lives in Florida, maybe I'll hop a plane some day and pop in on her.  You would love to get to know her, too!
MonMell has wonderful decorative pillows.  I had to have this one!  I love the burlap and the added  moss for the "nest."
Then Pam from Whimsy Sweet Whimsy had this darling owl and he just spoke to me,
"Please buy me, you deserve to have my cuteness in your home!"
My chippy croquet balls were just the touch I wanted for a great wire basket I purchased from Decor Steals...(But that is another post)
Itsy Bits and Pieces is great for those items that you can't always find at the flea market but need for your decor. They have so much to choose from.  PLUS I got a bonus Vintage Bingo Card and Flashcard!  It was so fun to get those extras in my already highly anticipated package!
Then lastly for today, is my art from Gemini Studio.  Stephen Fowler is a very talented Studio Artist and I LOVE my Bichon Art. (Hey, I'm a Gemini too!)

If you love dogs and GREAT graphic art...This is your one stop shop.
Next post, I'll share some styling that I did with these wonderful items.  Until then, check out more
I'm sure you will get into just as much trouble as I did! 

Time To FLY!
