Sweet Packages

Today was a lovely day full of surprises! Mail man brought me several packages: orders I had recently placed on Etsy. Have a look below, aren't they all beautiful!

Sweet handmade packages waiting for being opened

Japanese inspired gocco print made by Anna of Annarubyking

Lovely vintage rings from Cookoorikoo's shop

Vintage velvet purse from Italianpostcards

This velvet clutch purse I plan to bring to my craft fairs to store the change money. Of course I could occasionally take it along to a night out as well. It would make a nice match with one of those rings so well, don't you think?

It makes me happy I have supported my fellow crafters by ordering through Etsy. Besides this these purchases are environmentally sound too. In fact I've been making almost all my purchases from fellow crafters for a long time now instead of going to a regular shop (if we don't count grocery shopping of course). I do encourage everyone to do the same whenever possible!

So many pretty goodies, Minna! Lucky you :) and I buy most of my gifts and treats for my self on Etsy (or other venue) from fellow artists. I'm being spoiled now and always want that special touch that you only get from handmade :)

lobel;y findings you bought!! I have teh same feeling about buying handmade lately. I rather preferr buying handmade then in the city at the shops which you can find in every city or mall.... besided the fact these companies gather more money all the time....
