A very Etsy wedding

Standard

I have been wanting to share with you all some of the fun, handmade finds that were used in my gorgeous daughter’s wedding and reception. Now that the dust has settled a bit, I will show off some of the things we found on Etsy as well as some of the lovely touches that the beautiful bride made herself!

First off is the lovely hair fascinator that we found on Etsy from shop Power Blue Bijoux

I am so happy to share this fabulous sash from Amie Noel Designs; this pulled everything together.

I really love the concept of a guest book that will be admired all the time, not just when you pull the dusty book out of the attic on anniversaries- look at this wonderful Wedding Thumbprint Tree from Wedding Tree Guest Book on Etsy

I can’t believe how well my daughter painted these little peg doll wooden cake toppers for her wedding cake (she baked the cakes too, btw… they are from the shop Goose Grease. I love how you get two sets and get to pick your paint colors!

Father’s Day Gift Guide

It has been ages since I posted here; it is a busy time of year for handmade; Mother’s and Father’s Day, Graduation and Weddings… whew!

I did want to share some fun handmade items I found on Etsy; you can be certain that no matter how busy I am, there is a way for me to troll for cool handmade items 🙂                                                 

This tee from Scatterbrain Tees on Etsy would be perfect for the hip Dad who has everything. This shop is too cool for words and has a great selection of items for Dad!

Horse Sculpture

This sculpture would be a great gift for the arty Dad who loves mid-century, modern decor.

 

Look at the amazing sculpture from Cool Stuff Art Gallery– Christine makes such cool, mid-century inspired art. What Dad wouldn’t love an original piece such as this?  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now here is a great gift for the practical Dad; a handmade writing pen by DesignerPens on Etsy. Randy makes incredible pens using woods and acrylics.

Maybe you have a Dad who loves to look put-together and puts a lot of thought into his wardrobe; the dapper Dad. Here is a tie-tack that will add a perfect touch to his look.
