Let’s See, Etsy!

Theme: Clean and Simple

(Etsy is a site where people who make things can sell them. It’s an online shopping mall. Hundreds of shops offer wares unlike any you might see offline, so from time to time I will feature some of the items which have caught my attention. Prices are very reasonable, and I encourage any who are interested to consider shopping at Etsy the next time you have a gift to buy.)

Back in May I made a trade with another Etsy seller who makes wonderful soaps. Her name is Amanda, and her shop name is Long Winter Farm. Trades between sellers are a great way to share what you make with someone while benefiting from their art or craft. My package arrived from Long Winter Farm revealing a collection of the most delicious smelling cakes with names like "Porridge", "Spiced Rice", and "Bloody Lumberjack", each in their own individually labeled muslin drawstring bags. They are the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for that person who has it all. (Great tip: I keep mine in my lingerie drawer and it makes everything smell so nice.) At $4.50 per bar, how can you say no? I doubt you’d ever consider store-bought soap again after giving these wonders a whirl!

Thanks for bringing Etsy to my attention; I've never heard of it but it is a fabulous idea! The trading option is fun too. I took a look at your photography on the site and the colouring is really incredible ("At the End of the Day"). If you're also interested in oil paintings, check out www.mahshidfdimarco.com/index.html
for some really great pieces.

ps. thanks for visiting my blog :)

mmmm I swear I can smell them through the screen! I love handmade soap- especially since I have an allergy to gylcerin (yes, the stuff in most soaps) so they are always MUCH nicer on my skin than store bought junk! I need to check her out and get myself a few bars :)
