Friday Fun Finds…

I’m leaving…on a jet plane… don’t know when I’ll be back again…

Ok, that’s not completely true.  I AM leaving.. on a jet plane… but I DO know when I’ll be back.  That would be Sunday… the 4th… also known as MY BIRTHDAY!

And I’ll be back here to talk all about the BIG SALE that starts on Sunday evening.

In the meantime, how about a few more Fun Finds?

Thursday’s Fun Finds…

Happy October!!  Just a few more days until I announce the big “Birthday/October/Happy Etsy Anniversary To Me Sale”

You know, I get so focused on “me” and “my shops” that it’s easy to forget just how HUGE etsy is!  This week has been so much fun, seeing all the products that shop owners have suggested.  I think I may be able to write about three more posts, with all the “Fun Fall Finds” I’m… finding.

Here are today’s items:

More Fun Finds…

I posted in the forums at etsy yesterday, asking for Fun Fall Finds, and wow, did I get a fabulous response!

From paintings to knit items to vintage… you won’t believe how many great fall oriented items there are for sale right now.   I will be posting “fun finds” for a couple of weeks to showcase everyone who shared.

I’ll do a few at a time.  I posted a few of the fun finds yesterday… and here are a few more!

It’s almost October…

October already!?  Where DID the summer months go?

If you are like me, you aren’t QUITE ready for fall, but at the same time you’ll be glad to welcome cooler weather and fun things like pumpkin carving and costume planning.

I am especially fond of October, as it’s my birthday month.  It also marks the time of year where the weather in Vegas starts to become bearable again.  Both of things make me happy.

And I have one more reason to be excited about October – on the 31st it will be ONE YEAR since I began loading up my Delight Design etsy shop and became an “official” seller at etsy.  I can’t believe a year has come and gone… and in that time, I’ve added TWO new shops.  (Yes, three is a bit much, but it’s also a lot of fun!)

I will be celebrating my birthday, the cooler weather, AND my one year etsy anniversary with a HUGE Sale-A-Bration, for the ENTIRE month of October.  I’ll unveil all the info about the month long sale on October 4th (my birthday).

In the meantime, check out some fun fall finds from etsy…

Friday Fun Finds

What do you think of when you think of spring?  Here in Las Vegas, we often think, “oh no, it’s almost summer”.  It seems like as quickly as spring arrives, it has evaporated into the dry heat of summer.  I am trying to enjoy every last day of beautiful weather before the 115 degree temps arrive.

Along those lines, I did a search at etsy for “cool” and “refreshing”, and also asked for some recommendations in the forums from sellers who offer such items.  And do I have some Fun Finds for you!

First, if you have little girls, check out this lovely spring floral dress (offered in more than one size in the shop), from sweetpea4kids:

sp4kdress.jpg

This would be perfect for my daughter on those 95 degree Sunday mornings this summer!

And for moms out there, check out this FABULOUS knitted top from AnnleeDesigns:

anleewomantop.jpg

Annlee Designs also has some adorable hats for babies. (I’m a sucker for hats on babies, aren’t you??)

anleebabyhat.jpg

Next, check out Anbo’s lovely green and blue kanzashi chrysanthemum hair clip. It’s perfect for keeping the bangs up and away on those warm or windy days (of which we have both here in Nevada!).  It’s such a beautiful design… I may have to purchase it, so if it’s gone when you go to look, sorry about that!

Stepping away from clothing and accessories for a minute…

This next item is a PERFECT find for me, because I love me some ice tea, AND I love the designs of these painted glasses from JudiPaintedIt’s shop:

iceteaglasses.jpg

Fabulous, no?  She has some other great shots of these glasses in her shop.  Be sure to check them out!

All in all, some FUN finds today!  I’ll be back again soon with more refreshing spring and summer finds, and a whole lot more goodies to share too!

Happy Friday, all…
