Wishin' on Etsy...

I couldn't sleep this morning.  That rarely happens to me, so I decided to see how productive I could be this morning.  So far I've gotten a workout in, prepped some stuff for mailing, cleaned out the cats' bathroom, and finished off half a pot of coffee!  So, now I'm enjoying some blog time.  Well, more realistically, I'm enjoying some Etsy browsing. 

While skipping through some of my fave blogs I came across this Craft Gossip giveaway.  They love handmade lovelies as much as the next, so they're sharing the love with Etsy gift certificates.  It was a challenge to put together a "wish list" of bits and baubles under $100, but I enjoyed every minute of it! 

Here are my picks:

Cherryfield Lampwork set by Lisa New - $42.00 - I just love the rich, warm color combinations and, of course, Lisa's one of my go-to faves.

Handmade Porcelain Poppy Pendant by Beadfreaky - $10.00 - I just love the flowers

Blue Raku Lampwork Rondelles from HMB Studio - $9.95 - Aren't they just the best colors?

And, finally, Larkspur...Vintage Enamel Flowers from Sleeping Dog Studios - $28.50 - I'm not sure why I'm so obsessed with these vintage flowery bits, but I want more!

Whoo hoo...now off for a day of "real" work.  :)


  1. My favorite is the poppy pendant. Cool picks!

  2. Wow, you have had such a productive morning!I am not a morning person so on the rare mornings I am up early it amazes me what I can accomplish.
    I love all of your picks and I too love those cool enamel flowers.

  3. Love the colors in Lisa's and Sleeping Dog's stuff! Very vibrant. Don't work too hard!

  4. Great wish-list - my favs are the raku-lampworks:-)

  5. Those bottom three stores I've bought from! Such cool stuff!

  6. I love your blog Jenn and have been following for quite sometime, but only just recently gotten over my shyness and started commenting. I really love the new beads you have selected and can't wait to see what you do with them.

    I especially like the composition of the lovely flowers. That in itself would make a nicely framed picture for decorating a wall.

    I would also like to add that I am retired from the U.S. Air Force Reserves and Air National Guard, so I enjoy hearing about your USAF career.


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
