Sweet Etsy Shops

Look at how pretty this is. I bought it and it is in route from the UK to me. I just love vintage book pages and mini envelopes. This is extra sweet because it has a little cross stitched heart tucked inside of a bitty envelope made from a book page. A friend of mine has a great etsy shop chock full of love, well hearts, that is. Angie makes all sorts of beautiful items and they almost always include a heart somewhere. Check out her shop here at Artangel.
Look at this adorable bookmark ("It's never dangerous being who you are") I bought this from one of my favorite shops on etsy. Kim, who is a doll, makes some of the most fun and whimsical art. Check out her shop IMGirl. It always makes me smile.
Look at these beautiful paper roses, I ordered from an etsy shop called Book Craft. They are so so pretty. Tightly wound vintage book pages with scalloped edges. I am enjoying just looking at them. I plan to use them for something but for now they are eye candy for me. sigh...
Oh my gosh look how cute these little leather journals are. These two sweet as can be items are now mine. Yes, all mine. Don't fret there are more. I bought these from a great little shop on etsy called fullmoon. Click to see more of these darling little leather journals that have been made into jewelry and key chains, etc. And when I say little, the red journal necklace is about 1-1/2" and the little earring journals are about 3/4".
Oh my goodness. They are so adorable! I have them hanging above my art table to just look at. Am I sappy or what? I told my husband I was in love with them and he just rolled his eyes and shook his head with a sigh. :) Oh well, it's true.

Okay, I have been spending nearly as much as I have been making. Stop the madness!! Stop the madness!! (that's me talking to myself in the mirror) :) Etsy sucks me in and I can't escape all of the wonderful places it leads me. I am weak...Have a great Monday!
