More Etsy Love.....

I just can't seem to stay off Etsy and wanted to show you a few more of my pretties! These two beautiful pillows are by the fabulous Ramona of A Day in the Life of Ramona. They are filled with buckwheat hulls and make the most delightful sound. I also wanted to show you how well Chelsea has healed. The tumor removed from her neck was right under her hot pink bow. She had stitches from the top to the base (where her neck is shaved) and also two more tumors were removed from her stomach. She is totally healed up and doing great for a little old lady (she is 15).
I ordered these beautiful tags from Anne of Anne Fannie's Green Acres. I love them and they are going to look FABULOUS on all my gifts and teacher goodies.

Also, I just can't stay away from Mary Lou at House of Whimsy. She is constantly coming up with new and creative goodies. I had a hard time getting a good picture of this beautiful necklace (but there is one in her shop you can look at), it is just TOO cute.

Oh, and look what else I am looking forward to. Yep, you all know I just love Halloween. These delights are also from House of Whimsy. I also linked to a specific post here and have purchased the adorable BOO banner. You are going to have to be quick to beat me on these cuties. She does take orders

Just go and take a peek at any of these ladies' Etsy stores and see if you can resist!!!! They are ALL wonderful!! Hope you all have a great weekend.

Super cute stuff, Darlene! I love to shop on much to choose from! Glad to see your furry friend is doing alright...15 years is amazing!

Marilyn said...

I'm so happy that Chelsea is doing well. She looks so sweet.

Love your items from Esty. I have not looked around there yet but sure do need to. Cute and unique items!

We didn't get much rain. It is cooler now though. We were scheduled to start the shed yesterday but the threat of rain postponed that another week.

Have a great day!

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
I'm sorry I missed Lexi's first day of school post! She looks adorable in her little outfit, too cute! Hope she is enjoying school and likes her new teacher.

What pretties you've found on etsy! I've not bought anything from etsy before but I can lose hours surfing thru all the talented ladies stores.

It's been an exciting week working in my new kitchen, cleaning the construction "new" off it. We had an open house last night. I'm loving my new job *smiles* but I've had no time this week to keep up with everyone *smiles* Wishing you a wonderfully blessed weekend my friend!

Really nice stuff Darlene! I especially love the necklace. So glad to hear your pup is doing well.

Heather said...

very nice treasures you have found on Etsy! I'm so glad your doggie is doing much better now.

You've been busy. I was "window shopping" on ETSY just the other day. I think I need to go ahead & start on my Christmas list.
Have a great Friday.

Darlene girl !! I am so glad Chelsea is doing well (I'm sorry I didn't know she had problems .. poor little dear). It really cuts to our core when our little fur babies are sick.
I mentioned you in post answers to my Halloween mood post as a great decorator for Halloween .. and Aunt Debbie told me about the "etsy" ? site .. I have to go visit : ) .. Halloween is less than 70 days away girl !!
Joy : )

Melanie said...

Such cute, cute stuff. I can't wait to check out those sites.

Stacey said...

Everything you got is so cute! I have to make myself NOT order things. It's so easy for my little pea brain to feel like I'm not actually spending money when it goes on a credit card. There are so many wonderful things on Etsy.

Joanna said...

What great finds. I love Etsy, I haven't been on in so long. I need to go hop around.

Laura said...

I love Etsy too! I just ordered a necklace, and it was prettier in person than in the shop! Cute items, and glad to hear the doggie is doing okay!

jennykate77 said...

I LOVE Etsy too! I can't wait for the holidays to start. Love your little Halloween goodies!

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!!

Debbie @ said...

Wow Darlene! How cute. I love what you have gotten. I haven't shopped much on Etsy but girl you have got me wonderin' what else is over there that I need to check out!!!! Big smile. I have to say Lexi is adorable all ready for school. She is so sweet. Give her lots of hugs. I did pretty good saying goodbye to Whitney at college. She is with her two brothers so that is great. But when I got home and walked by her empty room...that got to me!
I enjoy your pictures and stories and all the good things you do and find.
Have a great day.
Maybe one of these days on my way to Tulsa you and I can meet and have a blogger bonanza of sorts!! big smile.

Jeni said...

That is some good stuff! I really like those tags.

Hi Darlene
You are getting set for all the seasons. They are all so cute. Don't you love ordering online and waiting to get them home? I just received a Finnish Cookbook today that I ordered by ebay for Geoff. I've had mine for over 20 years and he'll be soooo happy to get it He loves cooking too.

I'm glad Chelsea is all fixed up...the pretty little puppy..*s*.

Those tags are really cute too!
thank you for sharing and happy shopping.

I love Etsy even more than ebay because things are unique. It's a fun place to browse and get inspired! Those tags are just super cute!


Cottage Rose said...

I am happy to hear that your sweet little Chelsea is doing well, she is so cute... And I love your pretties, and the boo banner is so cute...


SmilingSally said...

I know firsthand the good workmanship of Ann's ETSY shop.

You're a good parent to think of teacher gifts.

Shelia said...

Afternoon, Darlene. Oh, I love all of your Etsy things! I could get into trouble there so I try to stay away! Are you going to take advantage of this tax free weekend for that cute little Lexi? :)
Oh, I'm so sorry poor little Chelsea had to go through these surgeries buy so glad she's healed well.
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Darlene, I am so glad you liked my tags! I just love shopping on Etsy too. There are so many fun things that we girls just can't live without! I am so sorry to hear your dog has been ill. My poor little Buster somehow poked his eye in our yard. I have been so worried these past few days. After lots of money spent at the Vet, I just hope he can still see out of it!

Hi Darlene
Thanks for sharing your lovely etsy finds and the good news about sweet Lucy. Lexi looks so beautiful at the recital. Everytime I see a picture of her dancing she looks so elegant and graceful.
Have a great weekend.

Hi sweet blogging friend,
I've been away from my computer all day but came over tonight to find this kind post about your Etsy finds. Thank you very much for mentioning us and Etsy. Very, very kind!
I'm so glad to hear your little Chelsea is doing so well after surgery. Wow! 15 years! No wonder you love her so much.
Thanks again,
Mary Lou

Oh I love Mary Lou! She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met- and so talented! You are lucky to have gotten her little treasures! They don't last very long in her shop, do they?;) Lori
