Etsy Item of the Day: Woodland Animal Ornaments

Leave a comment

Aren’t these little animal ornaments adorable? They are all so cute, but I think my favorite is the badger—I simply love its stout shape and etched details. The other available ornaments are: fox, rabbit, squirrel, owl, deer, hedgehog, toadstool, and bear. You can purchase just one, or if you love them as I do, you can order the whole set.

Etsy Item of the Day: Himmeli Christmas Tree Topper

1 comment

Earlier this year, I learned how to make a himmeli mobile using cocktail straws and thread. Since my discovery of this traditional Finnish decoration, I now see himmelis everywhere! It is most common to see a himmeli in the form of a mobile, so you can imagine my surprise and delight when I found this himmeli Christmas tree topper! Made with copper pipe and copper wire, this tree topper has a very modern and minimalist feel to it. If you’re really loving this tree topper, you might also be interested in a matching himmeli wreath.

Designed with world travellers in mind, this hidden pocket infinity scarf is perfect for discreetly storing your passport, credit cards, mobile phone, and other small items. Your valuables stay concealed in the scarf’s secret 8-inch zipper pocket, and your neck stays nice and warm. With fun, one-of-a-kind patterns such as Candy Cane [shown below], Do You Suppose She’s a Wildflower, and Tweedle Dee, you’ll want to wear this scarf all winter long—whether or not you’re travelling.

Etsy Item of the Day: Gold Magnolia Leaf Wreath

Leave a comment

A lot of silver and gold holiday items have been catching my eye this holiday season, so it’s no wonder why I stopped in my tracks when I saw this lovely gold magnolia leaf wreath. This stunning wreath is handmade in Charlotte, NC, where the maker collects and preserves the leaves prior to painting them. Amazing, right? I love crafting and making things by hand, but this is a whole other level of awesome!

Etsy Item of the Day: Merry Donut Earrings

1 comment

Maybe it’s because of the sugary deals we highlighted earlier today for Cyber Monday, but I’ve had sweet treats on the brain all day. So when perusing Etsy this afternoon, of course this pair of twee donut earrings caught my eye. Handmade using polymer clay, these kawaii earrings feature festive sprinkles and tiny sprigs of holy. These would add a merry dash of sugar to any outfit!

I love, love, LOVE felted elf booties—they make my heart leap with joy whenever I find a beautiful pair. These little baby booties are absolutely perfect for anyone who is welcoming (or has recently welcomed) a new addition to their family. Use them in a holiday photo shoot or add them to baby’s Christmas outfit.

Etsy Item of the Day: Julehjerter Pin


From the snow to the Christmas markets to the warming gløgg, Scandinavia is incredibly lovely during the holidays. I have a penchant for Scandinavian Christmas decorations, so this julehjerter [woven hearts] enamel pin caught my eye. This sweet pin would be a subtle, festive addition to any outfit. [Psst… If you want to make your own julehjerter ornament, check out these instructions in the Craft Cottage.]
