Three Things.


One of my favorite places for finding crafty goods online is etsy. It's kinda like going into Goodwill or a thrift store - you never really know what you may find once you enter. Sometimes I go in looking for scrapbooking/craft stuff, sometimes for fun little things for Simon, and other times I look just to be inspired in a new way.

Here's three things for this week:

1. Farmer's Market Basket by Go Buggy. Came across this site while searching for something else (one of the best ways to find cool things is to be looking for something entirely different) and thought this basket of felted vegetables was so cool. Also love the fish dinner.

2. Tabs from Circa Ceramics. Lots of great camera + typewriter images (among others). These would be cool on the cover of a minibook or album or as a reminder to yourself on a keychain. The art tiles are totally worth checking out too.

3. Bus tags from Every Jot & Tittle. There are lots and lots of tags available on etsy. The ones from this shop have been a favorite for awhile (still loving the red circle numbers ).

Two other favorite sellers include Flea Market Studio (for great little collections of stuff) and Remake (who uses all recycled + salvaged materials - especially love these mini font notebooks).

    I love being a buyer and seller on etsy... and I never would have heard about it without your blog from the Summer showing your bathroom art grouping!! I am also part of the Etsy for Autism street team that just started.

    Hi Ali,
    I'm lovin' the tones in this week's mosaic! Your 'vitality' IS WORKING, if those colours are anything to measure by....
    I have some more great photo's of rock roses if you'd like to work with them? I can't quite get to the macro botanical stuff I have been collecting.
    Thanks again for the inspo,

    Ahhhh ... some of my faves too. I have those little bus tags, they are a good paper weight with a nice feel to them; reserved for something for my little guy. I've had those camera tags favorited as well.

    I just love etsy, as well. We have found finger puppets for our girls, charms with my "one little word" on it so I can wear it often and the cutest sock monkeys! :) I also tried the new "pounce" feature that links you to new sellers. I found a beautiful charm made from blown glass! I have to be careful, though, or I will spend too much! :) Hope all is well with you.

    I also love Etsy!!! And I have quite a few of the tags from Every Jot and Tittle.
    A longtime friend of mine just opened up a new Etsy shop (I've been buying her stuff for years) so check it out for beautiful, one-of-a kind jewelry:
    Then there's Handmade by Anilu, where my very talented scrappy and jewelry-making extraordinaire friend has her unique pieces. Check it out at:

    Love it all - wanted to share Michelle's new stuff on ETSY - she has started selling some great felt stuff, cards and having fun. Her shop is called Bubbly Shnooks. It is fun to start getting to see the diverse stuff available.
    Have a great day - and thanks for sharing.

    You are the one who introduced me to Etsy as well. I now have a small start on a shop. I love reading the interviews on Etsy also!

    Of all the etsy stores, you are writing about cirka ceramics that I mention in a recent post about my inspiration board where I have a "tab" hanging. Love it! :-)

    Yep - Etsy is the best! Every Jot & Tittle & Remake are both faves of mine too. I just recently took the plunge and opened my own little shop called Autumn to May ( - fun, vintage-inspired goodness. Stop by sometime;-)
