Lovely things

I love me some Etsy. This site is like a huge mall of handcrafts. Not only is the site design among the cleverest I have ever seen (try shopping with the Time Machine 2 - so cool!) but there be treasures there.

Here are some of my favorites:

Pencils! Who woulda thunk that such pretty art could come from slicing up pencils? Jen Maestre is a wild woman with the pencils!


Ceramic jewelry that looks kind of rustic, from Block Party Press.

Rachel Austin's art uses recycled maps as a base. I love its whimsical look.


If you like dessert as much as I do, PukaShell's little creations will make your mouth water. How does she do it?


And then there's Project Grab Bag, turning old cans into pretty earrings.

These are just a few of my favorites among the thousands of Etsy shops. I may never have to buy a gift from the mall again.

i flipping LOVE this stuff--especially the Rachel Austin art. I think I might just have to get a few of those prints--including the one you show here. I've got a bit of a map fetish, so they all really appeal.

Can I just ditto Joy? This stuff is gorgeous, totally, and I may have to, um, actually buy stuff.

Oh man, I could spend hours floating around Etsy. And its your fault too because you mentioned Etsy a while back and got me started looking and now I'm an addict.

I love Etsy. I've got some stuff listed for sale, but so far no takers. It's very easy to find things I love though. It's dangerous.
