Etsy Finds for a Frumpy Saturday

I say Frumpy because the weather is so blah!

My farrier visit this morning went extremely well! I am so happy and will definitely be calling Joe back for the next trim!

Last night was a fundraiser for the horse rescue; I would like to thank any of you who came, that also read my blog, one more time for your support. The horses are truly lucky to have people like you behind them! We had a great turn-out.

So, moving on, today's post of my Favorite Etsy Finds of the Week!

I think I am going to go with a little bit of a theme this week and focus on hand knitted and/or crocheted items! I see a lot of it in my favorites and, after all, it is still January....even though it's 40* out today!

So without further or do.......
This hat is from Pixiebell. This shop has the CUTEST hand knited hats I have ever seen; I am in love with all of them!! They will even take custom design orders, but with so much to already choose from, I think you'd find 10 you already like :)


Next is this hand knitted, wool scarf from The Ruby Needle. Have I mentioned I am a freak for scarves and this one...I just love the 'Rich Autumn" color scheme. They also take custom orders as well.


On to this colorful beanie from The Crochet Queen! I love the bright colors with the green trim! There are all kinds of cool things in this store including bags and scarves too!


This hand knitted slouch cowl from blackmustard plays with my love affair for turtle necks! I am a freak about my neck catching a breeze in the cool weather...it makes my whole body chill. I love this slouch cowl -- I need one!


And last, but certainly not least, are these Green & Red Pom-pom Slippers by TheCrocodileRock! Tell me you wouldn't want these on your feet on a cold night by the fireplace!!


Have a Great Weekend Everyone :)

I'm glad the farrier appointment went well!
I love your Etsy finds! We have similar tastes. The cowl was cool. I am ALWAYS wearing a scarf. I have a whole rack of them and can't be without one. If I can keep my neck warm, then I'm usually warm! The knit scarf from Ruby Needle has amazing colors in it.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend! :)
