Brrrr...Curl Up With Etsy!

Dang it is C.O.L.D.! .... not that I am complaining! The ground is frozen again and the horses can go out....but their water also freezes not more than 10 minutes after I crack, break and refill their buckets! I guess that's the trade off!

Here is a not-so-great pic of them last night when I went to bring them into the barn. There was a full moon and it looked so cool! I can just hear Apollo going "Hurry UP MOM. It is 5* out and I want my dinner!"

Ok, so for this weeks Etsy finds....

This is becoming increasingly harder as I fall in love with browsing this site more every day! Everyone makes such wonderful things and it is so hard to only pick a few of my favorites every week!

This week, I decided to show some of the bags & totes I love! (Beacuse I need another one like a need another horse or hole in the head!!) I showed one in my first ever Etsy Finds Post that I am still saving up for :) but all these are wonderful too. I want them all! And since I love aprons, I threw in a new one I found & love just for the heck of it!


Ok, this first tote is from Handcrafted at Wit's End. Of course I like it because there is a horse on it, but it is also a recycled flour sack- so cool! Love the recycled 'feed' sack totes...LOVE them! This shop also sells local to me at Lehamn's in Kidron. How cool that must be! And this shop is also offering free shipping on orders placed before Valentine's Day!

Next is this messenger bag in toile by Originals by Kathleen I love messenger bags and I love toile prints; what's not for me to like about this one then! LOL :) This shop takes custom orders too!

This next one is super great because she uses recycled HORSE TACK :) LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Shop at Free Rein Designs for these awesome purses! I love the fabric on this one and also the repurposed braided rein for the straps! Ohhhh how cute!

Next is a market tote. How cute would these be to take to farmer's markets with you to hold all your goodies! Funny, I am not a fan of chicken's (long story) but prints with chickens I seem to like? Go Figure. This market tote is from Quirky Bags and they also take custom orders or will find 'the perfect novelty fabric for you'!

To show my Gypsy flare, I love this bag too! It is by VeryOrangeBird and they call it the 'Gypsy Dream Vintage Fabric Tote' - My inner Gypsy is in love!

And last, but certainly not least, is the apron I had to throw in. And SURPRISE, it has a chicken print! I need more aprons about as much as I need more totes and bags....and horses! It is made from a cotton flour sack towel [cool!] by StolenTime As they list it in the description, it is "funky country, stylish and ultilitarin' all at the same time!

Have a Good Weekend All & Stay Warm!

FUN finds! I was addicted to Etsy, but I haven't been by in a few weeks, shocking! :) I love the moon picture, I think they were calling it a wolf moon? The first full moon of the new year or something? Did you hear any wolves howling, lol?!

Thanks PG - I didn't hear that about the "wolf moon"; I will have to look into that! Interesting.......
