Sight Unseen!

Good morning Blogiverse! I realized this morning that in reality I fall back into a lot of the same stuff all the time. Today I'm heading for things I haven't covered before. Some may be similar but it is going to err on the side of change. I hope you like what I found and I will try to justify my findings today too!

Giraffe 5x7 Print by:
Price: $12
I love this, when I passed by it, it just really caught my eye. And I know what you're thinking 'why yes, it is rather bright orange!' it wasn't just that though. I love the mixed-media effect of it. Clearly the illustration was done in great detail with pen and ink (one of my favorite types of artwork) but then it mixes the bold graphical look of digital art (which is my medium) in a modern and very contrasting way. The very plain very bold color plays a beautiful contract to the clearly very detailed and realistic drawing of the giraffe. This is the perfect kind of funky art that you can really center an entire room around. You can bet I will be visiting this shop again when my husband and I move into our new house and I'm decorating.

Victorian Sawn Porch Balusters by:
Price: $11.49
I know a lot of people who read this blog are DIYers and if you need to update your porch these are gorgeous (take a second to look at the page because there is a picture of them being used! This artist also boasts free shipping (which is awesome!) and can cut as many of these as you need. If you're updating your home or want to add some interest to your porch these are definitely the way to go. This artist has more styles too!

Therapy Back Relief Heat Pad by:
Price: $16.95
If you have never used something like this before I urge you to buy one today. These are incredible. I have really bad cramps because of a medical condition and my husband is in the Air Force working all day with his back craned at odd angles and comes home at the end of the day pretty sore. I had one of these (not quite as nice) for my cramps but he also loves it for his back! Way cheaper than buying those pharmacy brand back heating pads. These are reuseable whenever you want and this ingenious design of sewing it in 8 sections so all the heated materials don't fall right to the bottom is such a brilliant idea. My puppy got a hold of mine and destroyed it so when I get some money I think I will be ordering another one of these.

Recycled Soda Can Art Coke Pig Magnet by:
Price: $4.50
What a cute idea! You all know that I love upcycled things, well my husband drinks coke like nobody's business so this would be a perfect little thing for our fridge, especially because I'm always complaining of not having enough magnets (I have the magnetic chip clips but no magnet magnets). This little guy is adorable too and the bright colors of the coke can make him so happy. I love it!

Diaper Cupcakes Baby Shower Gift - Set of 4 by:
Price: $17.95
I know 3 girls who are currently pregnant with little boys and two who just had little boys so I've been sending a lot of baby gifts. Now unfortunately it's a little less fun to shop for baby boys because the selection is so limited. I always want to give something cute because its a baby... babies are cute, and the mommies are clearly girls. This is a perfect gift. Unlike a diaper cake it these are easily shippable ( I live far away from most of my friends who are expecting) and they are full of great stuff. Socks, Diapers, and Baby Wash Cloths. Not to mention they are just sooo cute! What a great gift idea!


Hope you like what I stumbled across today. Have a great day today everyone!

Be sure to let me know what you thought of todays post? Do you like it? Do you want me to do more single item themed posts? Should I go back to my usual style? Comment to give your opinion! Every opinion counts!

What You Should Have Given Me For Valentines Day

Good Morning Blogiverse! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day. I did, I got to see a friend, it was a beautiful 70 degrees out here, and I got a ton of errands done which was great! I made my guy a cheesey home made Valentine that mentioned zombies on the inside and got him a small gift then made him fried chicken for dinner. I think I'm slowly learning how to be southern. He has been telling me for weeks he wasn't going to get me anything for Valentine's Day... and he was true to his word. I think he realized the mistake in that when he got home. I wasn't mad, just a little sad. Would have thought he would have wanted to make this Valentine's Day special because its our first year as a married couple (yes we're married, but the wedding isn't for a few more days.) Alas, he did not. Of course I've also magically gained back a pound in one day that it took me 3 days to lose, and I have no idea how so maybe its good he didn't buy me a bag of my favorite Sweet Tart Hearts or that box of Russell Stover Assorted Chocolates I pointed out to him and said 'I want that for Valentine's Day'. And yes, my darling came home and said 'I didn't know anything you wanted!' Oh well. I still love him dearly.

But todays post is dedicated to things I would have been more than happy to get on Valentine's Day as just a little, non-traditional 'I love you' gift.

Raspberry Rosewater Jam by:
Price: $7
It had occured to me that there are really 3 kinds of people in the world. Grape Jelly People, Strawberry Jelly People, and Raspberry Jam People. It is not often that people from these worlds take upon themselves the tastes of others and my darling is a Grape Jelly person. The stuff honestly makes me sick to even look at, but when I make him his breakfast in bed three or more times a week it is usually including toast with grape jelly. And then when we go to the store I always get his grape jelly but and so preoccupied I forget to get my raspberry jam or raspberry preserves. And I say that whenever we get home. I think he could have bought me a jar of raspberry jam for Valentine's Day without breaking the bank. Maybe I will buy myself some of this because it looks way more delicious than even the already delicious kinds you can get from the grocery store. And BEAUTIFULLY staged GroovyJams. Good job!

PeanutButter and Milk Chocolate Fudge made with Organic PeanutButter by:
Price: $8.50
Homemade delicious looking fudge that includes two of my favorite foods, chocolate and peanut butter. Now I'm a baker and I recently got a kitchenaid mixer but there are a few foods I'm afraid to try making for fear of messing them up and fudge is one of them, so I don't get it often. Theres no real substitute for homemade fudge either. Can't buy it in the store and chocolate fudge truffles are not REAL fudge. I miss it, it's been a really long time... probably over a year and a half since I have had real fudge. Now I really want some... darn it.

Crunchy and Chocolatey Cripsy Rice Cereal and Milk Chocolate - 1lb box by:
Price: $18
I love crunch bars and my darling knows that but besides that he knows my odd love of non-uniformly shaped chocolate pieces. I even eat kit kat bars by biting into them instead of breaking the sticks apart. If any of you have ever had a chocolate orange? My favorite part is the core. So pretty much these oddly shaped blocks of chocolate covered in crispy rice are my dream come true. These are making my mouth water and I may have to go out and buy some crunch bars and forget my diet today. One reviewer of these said they were better than crunch bars even! YUM!

My Favorite - Letterpress Greeting Card by:
Price: $4
The artist said this is what she and her husband say to each other when they are feeling cheesey and that made me smile because thats what me and my guy do too. He could have just given me a card for Valentine's Day and I would have been super happy. One like his would have been even better. Something that is more personalized than the mass produced sappy Valentine's Day greeting cards. He wouldn't have even had to write anything inside, just sign it and it would have meant a lot to me. I don't care what everyone else says, a hand written anything is such a special gift! And I love this notecard.

Tan Dotted Carpet Bag with Handles by:
Price: $40
I had to revisit one of my all time favorites on Etsy. I've featured this artist at least twice before but I am over the moon in love with these bags and my husband actually knows about this blog and I've shown it to him before... if he had just thought to look at this and figure out what I like, I'm pretty sure any artist that he convo'ed on Etsy could have helped him pick out the perfect gift for me. Especially because I'm walking around with a broken purse right now which looks awful and this bag is super adorable cute.


Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day with your loved ones and feel free to remind your guys from me 'just because you say you're not getting me anything, in advance, doesn't mean that when you don't get me anything that you won't be in trouble'!

More posts to come in the near future! Hope you have a splendid day!

ALBTM Sunday Edition!

Sorry I never finished my pre-valentines day post. One thing turns into another as always and I never made it back, but it is Sunday, I don't have to work today, and I've finished cleaning my house (aside from the laundry... which I just HATE) so time to post again.

So today I decided to do a paper themed post since most people think of Sunday Edition and news papers... or at least I do. So lets see what cool papery stuff I can find!!

Artists Sketchbook, Handmade In Turquoise Suede by:
Price: $13.96
Need a gift for an artist? Want something pretty to sketch in yourself? Need an interest piece for a coffee or end table? This is perfect. I mean look how stunningly beautiful it is! This notebook comes in turquoise (shown), hot pink, purple, and charcoal gray. All of them are just fabulous looking. If you try to buy something this beautiful anywhere else you will probably be paying between $25-40 so this is a great deal! Beautiful beautiful beautiful!

Map Envelopes - Set of 10 by:
Price: $7.50
What a completely cool idea! These envelopes are hand made out of gorgeous maps. Add a bit of interest to the everyday boring! Great for any sort of letter or invitation (destination wedding envelopes anyone?) I know what you're thinking, 'but you won't be able to read the address?!' These nifty envelopes come with a white label to stick on with the address so you can read it but you're still not going to miss the beauty of the envelope itself. Genius! Love love love.

Happily Ever After Print (digital file) by:
Price: $8.00
First off I think this print is super cute/adorable/vintage/cool. It appears to me that you can alter the date on the tree? Or the designer does it for you? I'm not sure but either way theres a date on the tree which is cute for anything, anniversary, babys birthday, anything. All you do is get this printed somewhere or print it yourself and you can frame it. You get the digital file sent to you for that $8. And the better news is a. you don't have to wait for it to ship, b. if it gets ruined you can print it again, and c. you don't have to pay for shipping. Awesome? Awesome.

Thank You Note Letterpress Set - Hedgehogs by:
Price: $15
For $15 you get 5 of these adorable notecards with coordinating envelopes. Don't want it to say 'Thank You' on the front? No problem, the artist offers to make these blank notecards as well. I don't know about everyone else but I LOVE notecards/cards of all sorts. I always want something interesting to send out so that the recipient likes more than just the message inside and so I actually want to use them which is the driving force in getting me to sit down and write out thank you notes. I may be ordering some of these myself for my wedding thank you notes. Cause they are just so so so cute!

Come Fly With Me Birdie Layered Pop Up Card by:
Price: $3.99
This beautiful design is a single blank inside card but WOW whoever gets this card will certainly be very impressed. This will brighten their day for sure. Or if you're more like me, you would probably buy it intending to send it to someone when the time was right but then end up buying a frame and putting it on the wall instead because this is much more than a greeting card, this is stunning art. Gorgeous.


Hope you like what I've found today! Only 20 days left til my wedding so I might be a bit busy and not around all the time but I hope to keep up with a post here and there. Keep checking back!

Valentines Day With A Twist!

Good Morning Good Day Blog Readers!
So glad you came back again today! I really do appreciate your dedication and I hope you're enjoying my blog. With Valentines Day coming up so soon I thought it would be nice to post some traditional Valentines Day items with a twist, because thats something Etsy does so well, adding a twist on the ordinary to make it extraordinary! I really hope you enjoy everything I find today and keep reading!

Custom Paper Flowers by:
Price: $3-150
This link is for the entire shop because I couldn't decide on just one to link. She makes beautiful flowers and custom flower/bouquets of paper for you! These are stunning and they will last forever instead of dropping a lot of cash on overpriced flowers just because its Valentines Day. Not that I'm saying I'm going to say no if my darling comes home with a bouquet of the red gerber daisies I've been asking for, but I certainly would not be disappointed with these either! Gorgeous!

Chocolate Dipped Vanilla Shortbread Hearts by:
Price: $10
Every girl regardless of if shes on a diet or not wants chocolates on Valentines Day. Its just that extra bit that really seals the deal. But if you're anything like me there are only one kind of chocolates for you on Valentines Day, Russel Stovers...., and odds are your man is going to pick up that heart shaped assorted box which you will only eat some of (because you're picky about your chocolates) instead of buying you the rectangle box of your favorite kind (because he can't remember) or ordering you a custom box online (which I have totally done for myself before). I would MUCH rather get adorable cookies like these which I will eat most of but probably be willing to share with him. And these take the scary out of chocolate, you know what you're going to get! And they look scrumptious!


Puppy distractions! More Valentines Day finds to come! Keep checking back!!

The Random Word Generator Has Spoken!

Hello everyone! It is 26 days until my wedding day now and I'm so excited! Not the least bit nervous either. But if you're wondering why my posts have been sporatic that would be why. Planning and executing a wedding in two months is hard, even harder when one of those months is February and clearly giving you less days than it should. But I've found a bit of time for myself, amongst the planning and mailing checks to vendors, to write a post today before I go and tackle the cleanup of my kitchen. (It seems the closer I get to getting my wedding in order the more chaos evolves in my kitchen!)

I was trying to decide on a theme today as I had only one item picked out for the blog today and I couldn't decide on one... so I googled a random word generator, plugged in adjectives and then searched them on etsy! I came up with some fun stuff so I really hope you enjoy it!

Generated Word: Imperial
Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake in Imperial Violet (13x19) by:
Price: $15.95
What a lovely idea. I know a cupcake makes me feel better when I am stressed out. The color of this is adorable and it comes in so many shades too. If you're looking for something cute with clean lines and a bit of a modern design this would be perfect! Imagine it in a kitchen of someone who really likes to bake. You could match it to appliances or get it in a contrasting color! Makes a cute gift or something for yourself. I would even put this in my bedroom or living room. I rather like the touch of whimsy in it!

Generated Word: Structured

The Diamond Cage Necklace in Shining Gold by:
Price: $25
I really like funky pieces of jewelry that not everyone is going to have something similar to and this is a beautiful example. From far away it would look like a gold figural pendant but when you get closer you have the stone inside to reflect the light and the beautiful shape of it. It would add a lot to an everyday outfit! This is definitely a concept that is not going to be seen all the time!

Generated Word: Leisure
Everyday Leisure Neckwarmer in Leafy Green by:
Price: $28
Most of the country has been swamped with snow lately, at least the more northern half so its not even close to time to give up on scarfs yet! I love the color and detail in this one with the chunky knit and the old fashioned buttons, they remind me of the buttons on one of my dads old jackets. Anyway This scarf is the perfect solution to one of my pet peeves! I hate walking around with a scarf that hangs long so the wind catches it and it blows in my face, or it gets stuck in a door or anything like that. I also hate tucking a scarf into my coat and having it awkwardly hang out the bottom. This way you can pop on a scarf, put it under your jacket and make sure you neck is completely sealed from the cold and rather fashionable at the same time! Awesome! (be sure to check out her whole shop for more adorable scarves!)

Generated Word: Fresh
Bright & Happy Mix by:
Price: $1.45
This is the cutest confetti ever! Little birds made out of old dictionary pages which supports upcycling so it's environmentally friendly! This is perfect for a birthday party, or a spring wedding to use as decorations or even have a little flower girl toss in lieu of more expensive flower petals or sometimes dangerous rice (seriously... have you ever gotten hit in the face by some rice of a very enthusiastic little flower girl?). This gives you 40 birds and 20 flowers for a great price and shes happy to make more if you need it. Not to mention the shipping costs are a dream! Two thumbs up!

Generated Word: Textbook
Bubbly -Bright and Cheery GIANT Paper Holders by:
Price: $7
Giant paperclips are so cute! I used to use regular paper clips as bookmarks in college when I was studying but these would be even easier to spot with the big bright buttons at the end. But really they would be great to add a bit of flair to any boring old stack of papers and bring some sunshine into your life! This designer also offers this pattern of fabric in ponytail holders, clips, bobbies, rings, headbands, pins, necklaces, magnets and bookmarks. You've got to love Etsy where everyone is willing to do SO much more for you!

Generated Word: Key
Key Hooks Wod Home Decor Organizer by:
Price: $26
I love entryway hooks like this. The shabby chic that makes you feel at home instantly. With hooks that could be used for hats, jackets, scarves, keys, umbrellas, or anything else this will add the perfect homey feel to your house. The added small jar is just an extra bonus! A great place to display real or fake flowers or anything else you may need to store. Yeay upcycling!!


I hope you liked everything you found today and look for my new blog that I will be running with my friend in the future for all your fashion, purse, and makeup needs!

Let me know what you think! Have a beautiful day!

Oh, What A Wonderful Day!

Ah! There are so many things that fall into place at the same time it always seems. And of course you inevitably have periods of time where you're just so bored waiting for SOMETHING to happen. Well I actually prefer everything happening at once, I work better under pressure but as it turns out trying to help my husband with his school/work work, planning a wedding at a location 2 plus hours away, taking care of a puppy, and trying to plan something cute/sweet for Valentines Day (which is less than a month away) at the same time is a bit rough.

Did I mention I'm practicing making my own wedding cake too?

But what I've realized is eventually if you just try to plow through all of it, you end up going a lot slower than you want. It's important to take time away to appreciate other things and maybe get some inspiration! Thank you Etsy for providing me with a wonderful distraction.
Robotic Love by:
Price: $3
For all of you that have a cute and quirky sense of humor like me this is the perfect card to give or recieve for Valentines Day! What a cute little robot! I love the craftsmanship on this too because you can tell a lot of work went into it and inevitably when I try to make a Valentines Day card I put in a lot of work and ends up looking like a 5 year old made it (though my fiance still has the Valentines Day card I made him last year... and every letter/card I've ever written him!). My fiance has this amazing ability to pick the perfect card for every occasion too so I need something cool. This is such an amazing deal for $3, especially because the really super cheesey awful ones at the store are like $4-6. And they don't have robots.

Lime Margarita Lip Balm Oval Tube by:
Price: $3.50
First off. FINALLY! Someone designed their tube to be oval so if you put it down it won't roll away and find a hiding spot where you won't find it! Second. Can ANYONE say no to a scent like Lime Margarita? That sounds amazingly delicious! This lip balm is made with amazing ingredients too like jojoba oil, cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter. If you buy this anywhere else it would be an $8-10 lip balm. Granted I have not tried this myself yet but when I actually get money I fully intend to... because I REALLY want some!!! Look so good...

Orange Lotus Throw Pillow by:
Price: $20
I think orange is an underutilized color when it comes to interior design. I'm not saying douse your walls in dark orange paint but the right shade in a small amount can make a lovely accent to a room. Like this pillow. Imagine it on a nice white leather couch with plain beige throwpillows.. then this, and POW! Your room goes from bland to glamourous for $20. Honestly, if you take a second to be daring with a little bit of color it really does you some good. And I simply adore the embroidery on this pillow. It is beautiful!

Repurposed Ornate Frame Cork Board by:
Price: $24
I don't know about everyone else but I have notes to myself everywhere. I keep a constant supply of sticky notes and they cover a good portion of my house on a daily basis but then I find myself not being able to locate them and I have to write things on note cards and they don't stick to things so they get lost. I really need a cork board but I've always thought they were ugly but THIS one is so awesome!!!!! The bold color, the ornate frame. Thats a cork board that can be displayed as art and not just there for function. Love love love love love love it! I've been looking for one of these!


And Etsy has gone offline for a  few minutes. I guess they are having some technical difficulties so for right now I'm going to stop here.

Leave me comments and let me know what you like! Happy Etsying Darlings!

Inspiration Once Again!

I was inspired to post again today thanks to a sweet comment I recieve on my last post! :) I've been super sick lately and overwhelmed by wedding planning so I think that means it's time to escape to Etsyland again! No real theme again today but feel free to comment and suggest a theme for my next post if there is anything you want to see. As always if you don't want to comment you can always email me what you want to see here to I love requests because it makes the thrill of the hunt that much better!

Selfishly things that I'm looking for today are things I can put on my wedding registry. Did you know that with you can put anything from any site onto one easy to navigate registry? Best.Thing.Ever. Found that out after my cousins used it for her wedding. She too had things from Etsy on her wedding registry.

Wooden Owls and Trees Bookends by:
Price: $59.99
Okay, so these aren't going on my wedding registry, but these will be on my baby registry. The worlds CUTEST bookends. They manage to be adorable while still keeping clean modern lines which is what I really like and the colors are bright and cheery. I am also searching for a gift for my friend who is due to have her baby a few days after my wedding but I feel like this is more for a little girls room and shes having a boy... but my other friend hasn't found out if shes having a boy or a girl yet... fingers crossed! I love buying baby gifts!

Cupcake Stand/Dessert Pedistal in Modern Bird (red) by:
Price: $27
I think this is adorable! My sister and I are doing all the desserts for my wedding because my caterer (who is adorable!) doesn't do desserts any more (TOTALLY fine by me!) so I am making my own cake and she and I are filling a table with the most delicious brownies, cookies, fruit displays (and this is a budget wedding too) and I think this would be ADORABLE on the table too. It doesn't go with my color scheme but it goes with my vintage/modern infusion style that I love and I'm using white square plates and platters. You can't tell me this wouldn't look adorable. Also this is perfect if you ever bring desserts to a friends house for a cookout or a dinner because a. you know which platter is yours when you leave and b. it shows you have so much style and clearly you'll get compliments. Two thumbs up for this one!

Anita - Genuine Leather Handbag by:
Price: $135
This is something I ADORE to see on Etsy. Really nicely made products that the crafters clearly care about. If you look at the beautiful stitching and buckles on this bag you can tell that this bag took time and planning to make. Not only that but this bag also has the metal feet on the bottom (like most designer bags do) to add that bit of lift from the ground so to protect the leather a bit more and help to deter scratching without making your bag look like it awkwardly has legs. This is my absolute favorite color of leather (beautiful warm caramel color!) And the shape is very clean cut and modern with a nod to classic vintage. Adore adore adore!

Red and Beige Holiday Paper Garland 6ft (SALE!) by:
Price: $10
Take some time to actually click the link and look through the pictures of this and the other paper garlands. These are vintage glamorous absolutely stunning. It is clear that a lot of effort when into these and for this price I think it's more than great idea to buy and put these away for next Christmas. ALL of your friends will be jealous. I have never ever seen anything quite like these before!

5 Recycled Paper Flowers - Robert Frost by:
Price: $15
I saw these and immediate thought 'I want these for the centerpieces at my wedding!' Really, what better. They have that beautiful romantic feeling about them, they aren't going to die on you before people get to see them, they can be used again and again, they create interest, AND they cost a heck of a lot less than fresh flowers. If you put 5 of these in a vase they would look abundant and cost you $15. If you got an arrangement for the table it would be between $45-$75 per table... for an inexpensive one. I think we have a winner here!


Like what you see? Let me know! Wishing you saw something else? Tell me what you want from the blog! Leave me comments and I will do my best to make all your wishes come true!

The Blogging Shall Resume!

Dear Friends & Followers,
I'm so very sorry that I've been away. As we all know well the holiday season is super busy at best and my darling and I were hosting part of my family this year for the first time so that became a whole new level of stress, then when that started to die down finally we decided to do our wedding on our original intended date of March 5th, 2011. So I am trying to plan a wedding in less than 7 weeks now but we started out with 8 weeks. Time for some DIY and lots of travel. Unfortunately I can't get a lot of the Etsy things I wanted in that short period of time but I hope my wedding will still be beautiful!

That being said I am going to try to keep the posts going and I'm sure I will be better at it once the wedding is over. For now this is a very nice stress relieveing break for me so I hope you like what I've found.

Princess Cameo 20x24 Vinyl Wall Decal by:
Price: $25
If I was a 4-13 year old girl I would want this on the wall of my room. Heck. If I were not getting married and to share my room with my husband I would want this. A part of me wants this for my room! (He gets a mancave and I have a room too I just have not thought of a proper name for it as Lady Lair sounds a bit dirty...) I LOVE the vintage feel of this and of course the classic silhouette with extra feminine flairs. Can you imagine this in a black and white striped room? I'd probably find an ornate frame and put this down on a nice piece of canvas or something and just leave it framed in the room. Put shelves with white candles around it... just for extra fabulous-ness. I want this...

A Love To Last A Lifetime by:
Price: $3.99
Intended to be a card of some fashion I don't think I could manage to give this away if I bought it. I would probably buy a very modern black shadowbox frame and put it in there and hang it on my wall. The detailing in this is simply exquisite! If you click the link and go look at it up close you can see just how beautiful it really is with all the seperate cuts. The handmade quality of this is exactly what I love etsy for. There is true talent put into it and this is something that (if I could make myself give away) would be something worthy of giving with a cute note or well wishes to a friend. It says more than the cookie cutter mass produced things you get at the grocery store by FAR.

Bracelet Vintage Style Hand Embroidered by:
Price: $95
Let me just tell you now. I usually roll through the pages on Etsy fairly quickly. If I see something I like I usually don't realize it until I'm on the next page and then I have to go back, but this bracelet stopped me dead in my tracks. I've never seen something quite this stunning before. This bracelet could make any outfit go from ordinary to amazing. Please take the time to go click on the link and look at the stunning pictures of the bride wearing this bracelet. If I had $95 and I didn't already have a gift of a bracelet to wear on my wedding day I would have picked this hands down. This is breathtaking.

Damask Personalized Cards (set of 12) by:
Price: $15
Of course with my wedding coming up I know I will be writing a lot of thank you notes and I've been preemptively looking for some really nice ones because the last thing I need to be doing is scrambling for thank you notes last minute so I don't seem rude and actually get them mailed out. Most nice cards will run you up to $2 a pop. More if they are personalized but this beautiful set of 12 cards is presonalized and only slightly over a dollar a piece! This is a great deal for those of us who don't feel great about sending out cookie cutter walmart brand thank you notes to everyone for lovely gifts! And you can pick your own colors on these! LOVE THEM!

Brown Sackcloth Handbag by:
Price: $39.99
I know I've featured these bags before but I really do just adore them! They are a great price, a beautiful classic look, and this designer keeps constantly offering different combinations of colors. There is one for every season in this shop. This is the kind of bag that I would carry on my wedding day to get ready. The perfect purse to say 'I'm the bride and I'm classy' as you go around getting your hair and makeup done and laughing with your girlfriends! I adore this bag!


Hope you enjoy my finds for today! Leave me some comments and let me know what you think! Also feel free to comment what you'd like to see in the future!
