12-22-2011 Etsy Favorites & Giveaway


Well folks,
I have to tell you that it has been quite a whirl wind around here this past week.

So I must apologize now if today's post is 
a little slim.

I have selected many wonderful handcrafted items
to feature today
however I am limited on the time I have to talk about them.

My 11 year old daughter had surgery two days ago
and she can not get around on her own.
A friend dropped off a care package for her last night
so she might be occupied long enough for me to put a few words together today.

Recycled Material Bird Feeder

This one has actually already sold.
But there is another one ...
in Green.

by Sage Studios

Hat Rack & Horseshoe Shelf

My husband makes horseshoe racks also...but not like this one.
I love the added detail.

Boiled Wool Bodice Sweater Coat

I know I featured a coat very similar to this not too long ago.
That one was made 
all the way over on the Emerald Isle.

However this beautiful, whimsical creation was made 
right around the corner from me in
Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Felted Sweater Blanket

By: Ellalu and BooBoo Too

I absolutely LOVE this...
I would like to wrap my baby girl up in this and make her feel all better!
It just looks like it has that kinda of mojo.

Now last but certainly not least...

It is time for our
First Ever
Green Gourd Giveaway
a pair of these
Upcycled Arm Warmers

will be given away to one of our lucky readers.

These eco-friendly arm warmers are made for up-cycled and re-purposed socks.
Each of these warmers are very different.
They all are made with at least 2 different pairs of socks.
The thumb holes have been surged and have bands both at the bottom and top to keep them in place.
