Etsy Crushing by Brideblu

Tuesday, July 19, 2011



Well, howdy Village readers!  Cat here from BrideBlu & Krystal asked me to stop by and share some of my recent obsessions while she and Mark are busy unpacking and getting things squared away in their new living space.  Naturally, I turned to my second favorite place {after Village, of course!} on the world wide web ... Etsy!

Here is what I am loving right now ...

{one}  These Scrabble tile pillows are a kitschy was to jazz up a couch while paying homage to the hubs and my favorite game ... you guessed it, Scrabble!
{two}  A great way to jump start your package wrapping stash ... a collection of colorful bakers twine in 12 amazing colors {I am partial to the cotton candy pink}.
{three}  An awesome tea towel that will make you smarter ... the spiral is made up of collective animal nouns.  Did you know that bears travel in sleuths?
{four} a sentimental minimalist bracelet featuring a single initial {I would chose "A", the initial of hubs first name}.

this post thanks to:
john cena


thanks cat! I knew I could count on you for some etsy loveliness :)
