Birds of a feather...

I just love me some birdies!
Maybe I take after my Mother who loves the real thing. I however am quite happy with handmade kind...
I love to make owls myself and am always drawn to a cute one. This one is no exception!

This lil' guy makes me happy!

This seller is fun and always has new things up her sleeve. She's been one of my favorites for a long time!

You'll be seeing these on Miss Stella soon...I just love them.

OK. Next time I get married this is SO gonna be on my wedding cake. Don't worry honey I'll be marrying you again...I'm just sayin.

There's that word again.
And believe me it's hard to choose from this shop...her things are SO good!

I can totally see this tee on me...so that means I need it.
There's that word again.

Ohhhh, I'm so loving this. I love the tattoo-esq style and I'm a heart girl.

OK. I so have to get back to work. I've got an order to finish and if I ever want my stuff featured anywhere I better make some cuties!

I'm like a kid in a candy shop each and every time I 'shop' on etsy. I'm in awe of the colors, the talent, the fabrics. Almost 99% of the time I say to myself 'oh I'll just take a quick peek' and before I know it two hours have gone by. I'm starting to wonder if I indeed need to seek professional help. Like right now. I should totally be getting ready for our trip to Boston but instead, here I am...my mouse poised oh so perfectly ready to click.

How adorable is this up-cycled shirt? I love it. It's hip, full of mouth watering color and hand crafted SO well! This shop has lots of yummy treats for the little ones.

If I knew how to crochet I'd make this hat in a heart beat. I'm sure I could learn easily...I'm a knitter but very basic knits. I may have to take a couple of lessons because at least one of my girls has to have this hat.

I want to take this little guy in. I'd make him a warm bottle of milk: feed him, lay him in a basket fluffed with cozy blankets and become his Mama. Just look at the way he's looking at me now. He needs me.

I already know what I'd make with this folklore fabric...it's SO mine. Hurry, I'll race ya!

Everyone needs vinyl owls for their walls, right? I know I do. Hmmm, which color should I get?

These hats are cute, earth friendly and cute. Did I mention how cute they are? This shop has loads of cuteness throughout...go check it out!

Ahhhh, I've been a long time admirer of this artist and this sweet piece is a must have.

I'd say I remember having paper dolls like these when I was a girl but then I'd be dating myself so I'll just keep that little piece of info to myself.

Hope you all have a great day! We're off to indulge in a little Mickey and Minnie Mouse, some bad food, cotton candy and over priced souvenirs. I'll be feeding my addiction the minute I get home. Hope I don't 'jones' too much while I'm gone :)

I need money.
Lots of it. Lots and lots of it.
This little 'harmless' addiction could be bad for my wallet, the space in my house, my husband. I've neglected my other blog for a couple of days because it's easier to whip through etsy than it is for me to download the pictures off my camera from Christmas...(tomorrow plum readers, tomorrow!

Would you check out the cuteness of the above calendar??? Is it 'normal' to feel love towards a flippin calendar? Well, I do. I can't help it. I added this artist to my favorites the minute my eyes caught site of this baby.

I want this...bad. Not really sure what I'd do with it since I'm a messy crafter and I keep my pins and needles wherever they fall so needing this and wanting this are two very different things. Wanting usually wins out with me anyways ;)

Love, love, LOVE this and at least on of my daughters will be wearing something from this shop sooner rather than later!

These would look great on a shelf for decoration. They look purrrrfect!

I told you I loved birds and these are no exception. This shop has a ton of super cute vinyl decals!

This shop is going to take off very quickly, no doubt. I want every. single. thing. in this shop!
I guess I just can't get enough of Amy Butler's 'Cherry Full Moon' dot fabric because everything made with this luscious material catches my eye. I use a ton of it in my sewing and even used it to back pillows and curtains in my family room! This little clutch purse is so cute and a great size. I'm SO owning one of these!

How pretty is this necklace? This artist possesses many different talents from jewelry to handbags, hair accessories to all things fairy. I love, love her work.

OK. I need this, want this, will own this.
I guess I've been saying that a lot.
I can't help it! I fall in love with beautiful things and I just can't get them out of my mind. Then I become obsessed. Then it's all I can think about. I guess that's why I call myself an addict. At least I'm not harming anything or anyone, right? Tell me it's OK. Please?

Joyeux Noel...

You didn't think I'd actually make it just one day without stopping by my most FAVE site in the world, did you? No way!

I've been eyeing this little number for quite some time. This whole shop is chock full of the sweetest illustrations...ahhh, the innocence!

Not sure what I'd do with this but I'm quite sure I'll think of something! I just discovered this shop from Japan and I'm digging it!

A sucker for flying hearts...I also happen to like the band where this quote comes from (Death Cab for Cutie). You've got to check out this shop!

The talent this doll maker has is undeniable and endless! I might need one of these for my bed :)

OK. How cute are these heart clips??? Having three daughters promotes the need for cute hair accessories! I happen to be a BIG fan of this artist and am happy to have a few things she's made.

I'm a sucker for a cute pillow and these make the grade BIG TIME! So many cuties in this shop go check it out!

OK. Times up. I should be making dip, a cookie platter, getting the girls ready to go, feeding the dog, watering the tree and cleaning up for Santa...(didn't you know Santa won't come to a messy house? Just goes to show you my craziness!) Have a Merry Christmas Eve...I'm guessing I won't make it on tomorrow so you'll have to wait until Friday to find out more of my favorites!
If you'd like me to check out your favorites leave a comment on this post with your etsy name or convo me on etsy at www.iloveplum.etsy.com

Gosh, this is fun!

The Christmas Eve eve post just in case I don't get on the computer tomorrow...gasp!
tonight's favorites

I just luvvvv this dress and can speak factually on the craftsmanship of this artist. Her clothing is made per.fect.ly! The dress my baby is wearing for Christmas is made by this designer.

Go ahead and laugh, giggle, oooo and ahhhh. This little guy is SO flippin CUTE! I want one so bad...for me (not one of my girls...is that bad?) If you want one too check out the cuteness this shop ooozes!

OK. I have a penchant for birds. I just love them...especially on fabric! Don't you just love the pom pom detail at the bottom? You better be quick and snatch these goodies...they're on sale!

This girl makes me want to reach into my screen and give her a big hug. Her eyes are amazing, her sweetness pure. She'll be hanging in one of my daughters rooms before long! This artist is amazing!

I love doing mushrooms in the designs I make...This piece caught my eye right away. This designer rocks!

Maybe the sentiments I'm choosing as my favorites offer a little insight into my psyche or maybe they're just really good things to remember. I love this and can't wait to get one at this adorable shop!

I love Russian dolls...always have always will. This shop is devoted to them and such beauties they are!
That's it for tonight...it's story time!

Two days before Christmas...

and here I am starting another blog.
Because this year I've decided to procrastinate and what better way is there to eat time than to browse on Etsy? I can get lost for hours and hours (and have), flipping through my favorites, your favorites, the forum, the treasury. I can't even walk by my computer without seeing what made it to the front page. Maybe someday it'll be me!
today's favorites

Love the rustic, washed out look of these letters. You can find them in this lovely shop.

This little number is GORGEOUS! Just like all the other treats in this shop.

Being the fabric whore that I am, I will be buying this. This comes from my new favorite fabric shop.

I fell in love with this shop the minute I saw this necklace. Lucky enough my sister caught wind of my adoration and she bought me the bracelet version for my birthday!

Words to live by.

Ahhhhh, I just want to drink this fabric in...Isn't the dress just scrumptious? This shop is full of beautiful things for the girlies.
