Eclectic Etsy Finds!

Wouldn't ya know it. They've been calling for rain all week and it really hasn't rained. Now, today, Allen & I are headed to a fruit tree pruning clinic and I see raindrops on the window! *sigh*

In any event, we work in the orchard rain or shine so I suppose going to a clinic on caring for the orchard should be no different!

Here are my favorite Etsy Finds this week :) I am calling it an 'Eclectic Bunch!"

I am still discovering some of the most wonderful pottery on Etsy and this pitcher from Promethean Pottery is no exception! It so cool and I love the color. They have some great pieces so be sure to check out their shop. They are also on Facebook too if you are a 'facebooker'!

How about this vintage creamer. Love the color on this one too. I need more kitchen essentials like a need more animals ;) but this is super cool! Adventures in Vintage has all kind of vintage goodies in her shop AND she is also offering a SPECIAL for anyone reading this blog that purchases from her shop! If you find something you must have from Adventures in Vintage, be sure to enter "Novice Life" in the notes to seller box upon checkout for a 10% discount! And if you Twitter, you can follow the shop. PS. She loves Pioneer Woman too ;) And she met her!

I love this ring! My mom had an Opal ring I used to wear back when it fit my finger.....way back years ago! This one is so mystical and mysterious and I love it! Check it out at Elves Garden. Love the name too! Everything in this shop is mystical!

I am all about the oils. I love them for perfume, meditation, relaxation and how about this one, from For Strange Women that helps promote dreams! Actually, if you read the whole description, it does all kinds of wonderful things like help with sleep, stress and protecting you from unwanted energy. Lord knows I had my fair share of that - but another story for another time! And facebookers, she's there too!

These are just too much to pass up! Weiner Dog Bday Greeting Tags with a vintagey flare! Love them! If you need a gift tag for any occasion, you are sure to find it at Green Acres Cottage {love that name too!} Visit her blog as well when you have a chance.

Last, but never least, for this weeks finds, this Farmhouse Vintage Butter Dish! I love stuff like this; just imagine where this dish was years ago. Someone was using it to help complete a table spread while serving a wonderful meal to their family or guest! I love pieces like this that have so much history to them! And you can find a lot of that in Gypsy Fish Studio. And check out their blog too!


That's it for me this week :) Enjoy your weekend, rain or shine, and stay tuned for tomorrow evenings weekend wrap up. I may have a super cute, so cute you want to eat it...or them... picture to include in it! For now though, I am going to pretend the weekend doesn't end. And don't forget to turn your clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed tonight!

Interesting post. I love the opal ring it is so pretty and the butter dish reminded me of one my mum had years ago it was real silver.
