So I thought I would put together a quick post about a few of my new favorite items/sellers on Etsy. To me, Etsy is like that super artsy friend you have that you just love to hang around because you feel like some of that fantastic artsy-ness will rub off on you and somehow make you feel crafty and artsy, too.

I get so inspired every time I peruse the endless pages of the neatest creations and super vintage finds that people have listed. So, here’s to you, my Etsy friend…

First is this amazing necklace scarf; I about hugged my computer screen when I saw this beauty flash by. The ruffles, the texture, the layers, the color… oh, the color…I’m so into gray and charcoals this season it’s not even funny! This would make the perfect statement accessory piece… and it’s under $20! Ya gotta love that!! You can find this necklace scarf over at TEXTILEMONSTER.

My next gotta have fav is something I can almost guarantee will be worn by one of my own girls this holiday season… especially for family pictures. This 3-strap flower crochet headband is to die for. And seriously get a load of all those super cute colors… and, it’s under $10… HOLLLLLAAAA! I have no doubt you’ll fall in love with some of the goodies in the BOPPYBEANIES shop.

And now for the pièce de résistance… feast your eyes on this AH-MAZ-ZING belt. I mean, I am so speechless that I actually begin to drool just looking at it. Now, if only I had a 26.5″ waist you better believe I’d being wearing this baby even around my mumu house coat (OK, so I don’t actually wear a mumu, but if I had one I probably would… ;-) I’m seriously at a loss for words. The craftsmanship. The detail. The design. All flawless. The shop owner calls this an obi ribbon waist belt and I believe obi has to do with the Japanese style kimono so that makes perfect sense. In any case, I’m saving my pennies… Find this treasure and more over at MANO BELLO.
