A Love For Seasons

One of the things I've missed most about living in Canada since moving here to Belize are seasons. Yankeegirl, on Etsy, has some wonderful watercolor paintings that depict the beauty found in each season of the year.

Spring - What depicts Spring better than the first green shoots of Daffodils?

Summer - Playing in the Waves on the Beach is a fabulous way to while away a Summer day.

Fall - The gorgeous colors of Fall always made me want to save each and every Leaf!

Winter - And who wouldn't love a Snow Day on a cold Winter morning?

What Are You Going As?

Do you need a really cute Halloween costume for your little one this year? Check out Little Lids by Melanie Ganson on Etsy!

How adorable is this Pirate Hat? And it comes with an eye patch as well.

Or what about a little Purple Witch Hat to complete that witches costume?

And what Halloween would be complete without a Pumpkin?

Childhood Moments

I know I've said it before but I really like clocks and timepieces. The clocks in IMOTIME's Etsy shop are so cool and unique. You'll find everything from a Barbie clock to many different Tupperware clocks. These three though are reminiscent of my childhood.

Olympic Time. I spent countless hours wearing a pair of these.

Simon Time. I loved beating Simon's clock.

Scrabble Time. Get a double letter score in a S E C O N D.

Stick It To Me

My son and I really love magnets so when I came across Pink Limed on Etsy today I just knew I had to feature these adorable creations.

In honor of my little prince, here is a Little Prince Magnet who also can be customized for you

I don't know why but I've always loved the Mom Heart Tattoo image, shown here in magnet form

I saw Rent on Broadway when I was visiting New York years ago. I just love this set of Rent Magnets

Original Beauty

While responding to comments on my blog recently I came across this fabulous artist and Etsy seller, Art by Donna Rose. Her floral paintings are what originally drew me to her work but all her paintings are gorgeous.

I love the vividness of this Original Acrylic Painting of a Ballerina.

The textures in this Original ACEO Palette Knife Painting of Wild Flowers are awesome.

And for the extreme pet lovers, or for the person who has everything, she does Pet Portraits in Watercolor.

Or if you are going to be in the Missoula, Montana area in the month of October, Donna Rose will be having a show at Miss Zulas. The paintings below are just a few of the wonderful works of art that will be shown.

Stunning! Gorgeous! Cool!

I don't think I've ever had quite this hard a time choosing just three things from someone's shop to feature. I literally opened twelve new tabs while going through Peacock Jewellery's Etsy shop and then had to slowly narrow my choices down to these three.

Beyond just creating gorgeous jewellery, Cindy is an all around super helpful Etsian. I see her often in the forums where she's usually helping someone out and she's part of the Sellers Helping Sellers Team. And, for me, the icing on the cake is she's from my hometown, Calgary.

I have a real thing for anything blue so this stunning Striped Blue Agate Slice Necklace was the ONLY easy choice.

I love the shimmery look of these gorgeous Opalescent Dreams Earrings.

And how great is it to create this cool Lava Cube Zipper Pull from a chunk of lava?
