Well, Isn't That Just Peach-y!

The word I pulled from my "word jar" this week was PEACH.  I am really glad this word popped up as it allowed me to explore the many items currently listed on etsy when I typed it into the search bar.  As usual, I explored both the HANDMADE and the VINTAGE categories.  There was no lack of items to choose from.  My only problem was that I needed to narrow my selections down to four.  So here goes:

My first pick in the VINTAGE category is this beautiful beaded and lace sweater offered by 2 and 2 Together.  I think I had one like this way back when I was in high school - and that is going back a ways!  This great shop has some great vintage items.  However, they seem to specialize in beautifully crafted pillows featuring exotic and interesting graphics.  If you are in the market for a pillow, they are currently running a special of buy one and get one at half price.  Check them out!

I found these stunning handcrafted earrings in Jess Kay Designs glorious shop.  Hey!  These earrings would look great worn with that sweater above!  This shop in filled with some really gorgeous handcrafted jewelry.  It offers necklaces, bracelets and earrings.  All are unique and high quality.  When you are there, be sure to check out the Clearance Section - it is loaded with bargains!

Back over on the VINTAGE side of things, I found this great set of 4 Haviland Dinner Plates being offered by Jen's Closet.  This is a beatiful pattern that features delicate peach & taupe roses.  Whether you need to fill out a set you already have or just need a set of 4 dinner plates for special occassions, these are perfect.  I have a soft spot in my heart for vintage glassware.  If you do, you are sure to find something it this shop that you will fall in love with.  She has china, crystal, Fire King, Pyrex and much more.  She also offers vintage linen, clothing and barware,  Give your eyes a treat and visit this shop!

Anyone who knows me, will not be surprised that I picked this HANDMADE hat by LA Originals.  My family is soon to be blessed with a brand new baby girl so I was naturally drawn to this hat.  But you really need to check out this shop if you are on the hunt for a knit hat for either a boy or a girl!  The variety of hats offered here will blow your mind.  Hats with Fruits and Vegetables, Hats with pom poms, huge flowers and bows.  I spied some really unique little cowls over there too.  You just have to take a look!

So there you go for this week.  I wonder what word I will pull out of my word jar next week?  Can't wait to go exploring on etsy for more great finds!
