Meet Etsy

Etsy is not a person, Etsy is a website business; a unique global marketplace of individuals selling their weirs. Check it out here.

I joined Etsy a year ago, and since then I have made seven purchases. It all started with a pattern for a mouse for my granddaughter, Ava. (Shame on me, I still haven't made the mouse). Then I bought window clings, clippies (for Sydney & Ava's hair), a buddy bag pattern, four monkey tails and a unique toy. I've been very happy with the service and the people I've had transactions with every time. Today I'm returning to purchase more monkey tails. Here is one of them I picked out for Ella Rose, whom I just saw for the first time on Tuesday. Ella is one totally precious little baby girl, a co-worker's daughter. I'd love to post a picture of the new baby, but I don't have any yet. Isn't it just the cutest little binky holder you've ever seen? Her name will go on one of them and a cute phrase " Lil Sis " or " Angel Baby " on the other one.

Check out this awesome toy/game I bought last year for the car trip to Boston with my grand kids, Michael & Ava. It's called the I Spy Travel Toy. It held their attention for an extended period of time looking for all the items printed right there on the border of the game. Ava's favorite to look for...the baby bottle and Michael's....the carrot.

Here's the buddy bags of which I've knitted two so far, but haven't put the animals on them yet. I've been sidetracked for a while crocheting 100 bookmarks for my niece's wedding, but hope to get back to the buddy bags in June or before the wedding if I finish ahead of time. Those are finger puppets, tucked into the pockets.

Check out Etsy for yourself and let me know how you like it. Hint! Hint! Leave a comment.

I love Etsy too! I just ordered a new purse/diaper bag-rose colored velvet, can't wait to get it! That I Spy travel game is too cool. I am going to look for it.

I did go find that I spy game and ordered one for Ezra's birthday! Thanks for the tip!
Oh and my purse? It is coming all the way from Turkey I just learned so it may be awhile :(
