Okay, I know it is Wednesday and I missed another deadline. Seriously, lots of "life things" going on that just pushed blogging right out of the way. So sorry! Whew! Hopefully, we are back on schedule now.
This week I have taken a slightly different approach and have picked out two of my favorite Etsy shops and am showcasing four items from each. Then, I picked out my favorite ArtFire shop and four items from her shop too. This is the first time I have featured an ArtFire shop but since I am now on ArtFire too, I thought it would be good to feature someone who sells there and maybe learn more about ArtFire at the same time.
Satin and Birch is a wonderful shop of fabulous soaps! A friend of mine, suggested that I visit this shop. She was amazed, as I am, at the intricate details of these lovely gift soaps. They are so beautiful that I probably wouldn't want to use them. Each one is a lovely work of art...well, see for yourself...
|Ginger Orange Gift Soap 2 for $10.00|
|Apple Cider Cottage Hearts 6 for $14.00|
|Soap Wedding Favors - Lily of the Valley Scent 2 for $4.00|
|Champagne Scented Fleur di Lis Gift Soap 5 for $10.00|
The second Etsy shop that I am featuring is Sweet Heart Studios. Not only are there gorgeous gifts to be found at Sweet Heart, the proprietor is a complete sweetheart too! She is very meticulous with all of her beautifully handmade items. She packages them beautifully too, so that they are ready for gift giving...if you can bring yourself to part with them! You will find a vast selection of pendants, magnets, photo frames and uniquely beautiful hair pins in this lovely shop. You can also find this shop on ArtFire: here. The hair pins are a new addition to Catherine's shop and I think you will agree that they are truly lovely. Here's a tiny sampling of lovelies:
