Shopping My Etsy Favorites

I have an Etsy shop where I also sell my pillows, mostly just the covers.  But that's not the subject of this blog.  There are so many talented, creative artists and crafts people on Etsy that it's become a great place to shop without busting the budget.  One of the fun things to do is to just browse shops, pick favorites and revisit those favorites for serious shopping.  From time to time, I'd like to share my Etsy Favorites.

For the garden lover:

On a tight budget?  No time for gardening?  No matter, you can always bring some of the outdoors in.  I once had a muralist paint a red bud tree on a foyer wall.  But now you can do so much more with just wall stenciling, like these dandelions. (From Cutting Edge Stencil)
