I'm Showing Some Etsy Love and Look at What I Won!!

I just received this ceramic egg "nest" I bought from Amanda at her Etsy Shop Funky Shique yesterday. It is so cute and was only $6.00! The ceramic isn't the shiny finish, but more of a natural, slightly rough finish. It is the perfect finish for a egg "nest".
Then when you open the "nest" up, look what's inside, 3 of the cutest little pink eggs!
I love this egg nest so much! Amanda at Funky Shique sent this in a box that was all decorated up cute and with a nice card too. She has a lot of really cute items in her shop from ceramic to crochet to, oh she has the cutest little wired birds cage. A good find for me on Etsy and hopefully you'll like Amanda's stuff too, so go check her shop out!!

I also just bought some handmade buttons from a different Etsy Shop, NicholeAnne's. I love these cute little buttons. I get 5 randomly picked buttons for $3.50.
I wonder which ones I'll get?!?!? I can't wait to find out.
There so cute!!

Then one of my favorite shops is Claire and Janae. Janae is another person who donates some of her wonderful handmade baby items to Etsy for Charity. I was lucky enough to win two sets of burp cloths from Janae and they are VERY well made and of a high quality. With all my new grandbabies coming these are wonderful gifts!!

This green set went to Mrs. Benyo, one of the best teachers my kids have ever had!! She had her fist baby, Blake, on May 21.

This set is going to probably be going to my new grandson, Austin, who is due in November.

Okay, Last but NOT least is Richard from Unique Grabs. Richard makes very high quality and cute cards. Richard donates his cards and time on a monthly basis to Etsy for Charity. Richard, is in fact, the wonderful person who runs Etsy for Charity, so get in touch with him if you would like to join us at Etsy for Charity! He puts a lot of work every month into the shop and keeping everything and everyone organized. If you need cards be sure and check out Unique Grabs or Etsy for Charity to get some of Richard's "unique" cards!

Now for the GRAND FINALE'!!

Look at the cutest little dress I WON from Kathleen at blog Grosgrains yesterday! I can't believe she is giving this dress away! Actually Kathleen is having a Bi-Weekly giveaway of cute dresses. She has 2 of the most precious little models for her outfits, so check her blog out. Kathleen also has another blog The TumTum Tree that shows some of her family stuff and other wonderful things she creates. She is a very talented and busy lady!!

Thanks so much Kathleen!!

And because,


this dress won't fit my Mallory (damn, it would look so cute on her!)

I will be sending the dress to a very cute 2 year old,

the daring,

cute as a button,

my niece,

Miss Hannah Jo.
