Favorite Etsy Finds....and an Obsession

Today I was at a plant swap over at Harvest Thyme Farm. I took some of hubbys pepper and tomato plants as well as some grape vines we had dug out when we tried to thin the vines. I came home with some tomato plants left.....and also, from my swapping, I brought home the following: (1) celery plant, (1) cauliflower plant, (1) set bunch red onions, (3) pickling cucumber plants a peony flower plant, 2 strawberry plants and one more tomato plant! I think that covers it. Ohhh ohh, and I picked up some heirloom carrot seeds and moonflower seeds too ;) Think I am developing an obsession!?

So, for my favorite Etsy finds of the week......

I wanted to start with a purse I actually ordered and am super happy with! I have been searching for a new tote for awhile now and finally found one that seemed to fit! I purchased it from Mom of Two Boys Designs and I must say, the service was exceptional! Shipping was beyond fast and the workmanship of this tote is true quality.

I have been reading a lot this past week in other blogs about thistle and things you actually can do with it, so I did an Etsy search on it ;) and came across this beautiful print! You can find it, and many other nice prints, at Futurowoman Fotographie.

Ok, how about this ca-ute get up! Wouldn't one of my nieces look too cute in it!? With the chaps! Agh! I cannot stand to picture it; it is too adorable ;) You can find it at The Handmaiden's Cottage.

I stumbled upon this hooded cape and it instantly caught my eye! I love that it has a hood! You can find it at Sew Ninja; check it out. Lots of OOAK (one of a kind) items to fall in love with!

And for any of my readers who are vendors....farmers markets, craft shows....things of that nature. Get your vendor apron from Yoopers! Michelle does a FABULOUS job! I ordered my vendor apron from her, and then ordered one for my mom too!

Those vendor aprons are adorable. I wonder if the higher ups would let me wear it to work.. (as a barista)

As a grownup (ha) horse girl at heart, I love that little outfit! So cute!
Great pictures on your site. I volunteer at a horse rescue farm here in North Carolina, but don't have my own. Someday ...
