A Different Kind of Feature

Instead of writing one post on one shop, I'd like to share a little bit about several.

First up is Chicky D's on Etsy. It was created by Danielle, and she makes the most adorable hair bows! I absolutely love hair accessories, and when I don't have to dress up for work and look professional, I am not above wearing bows in my hair. Check out one of my favorites at Chicky D's. These pretty, mini, green bows have the cutest lady bugs on them :) There are literally three pages of different hair bows at Chicky D's, so be sure to check them out.

Next on my list is Empty on the Inside, also at Etsy. Find her on Facebook and in the world of blogging. Empty on the Inside is run by Annie, and she creates fun cards on the outside so you can say what you want to on the inside. As I was looking through Annie's cards, this one caught my eye. It's pink and green camo on the outside. The town I live in has recently had our National Guardsmen deploy for at least a year, and I think it's so important to give and receive mail from loved ones. While email is great, it's hard to carry in your pocket to take out and reread whenever there's a spare moment.

Last, but not least, of course, is GMaellen, run by Ellen on Etsy. Her shop is filled with crocheted treasures, many of which I aspire to create some day. Until that day (many years in the future), I will content myself with buying other people's handcrafted treasures, like this lovely rag rug. It measure approximately 3x3 feet. I think the colors just blend together perfectly to work in a variety of rooms.

I hope you've enjoyed reading about these new shops as much I have enjoyed writing about them!

Ancient Oils on Etsy Feature

Ancient Oils on Etsy is a cute little aromatherapy shop run by Lilly! I love that she has a degree in metaphysics and various certifications in holistic energy healing, giving her blends specific healing properties. Several of her creations were created out of personal need, such as the peppermint blend roll on to relieve sinus pressure.

This custom blend massage oil also has a soothing peppermint and wintergreen scent in addition to essentials oils to specifically target aches and pains.

Keeping with the peppermint theme, here is a neat peppermint foot scrub! It has a luffa inside, making it ready to go whenever you get home.

Finally, here is an opportunity to create your very own custom scent! I think this is a great way to mix several of your favorite scents to create a signature perfume.

Maybe you couldn't tell I was in a peppermint mood when I wrote this, but check out Lilly's shop to discover her many other aromas!

Sandy's Soaps and Things Feature

This feature looks at Sandy's Soaps and Things on Etsy! Sandy's shop focuses on bath things (cold process soap, molded soap, bath bombs and more), but she also has jewelry, knit things, and knitting markers. She lives in Stamford, Connecticut, United States, where she is surrounded by a medley of animals.

I absolutely love the smell of vanilla in all its manifestations, and that goes for vanilla soap! Here is some made with goat's milk and cocoa butter that will leave you both moisturized and smelling good all day :)

I know summer is coming to an end, but these yummy-looking orange creamsicle pop soaps are making me think of Halloween! How perfect would they be to put in a specially made Halloween bag for the grandkids? Just warn the kids not to actually eat them! ;)

Now that the kids have their own gift, how about one for yourself? These light pink bath bombs smell like pink sugar, and while I'm not entirely sure what scent that is, they sound so delicious I'm tempted to find out!

With summer beginning to fade, I know I have about six months of cold, dry South Dakota winter coming my way. Anything to keep my skin moisturized is a plus, and, hey, taking a nice long bath after a full day of work (where I leave and come home in the dark) is something to look forward to any time of the year. :)

Elizabeth MD Jewelry Feature

Good morning! Today's feature is on Elizabeth MD Jewelry on Etsy! Elizabeth comes to us from Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. She is a girl with lots of eclectic interests, from Kawaii to Lolita and a whole lot more. Elizabeth is particularly interested in history dealing with the Gothic and medieval eras, although it's hard for her to say no to anything rockabilly! You'll also see a strong influence stemming from her love of nature and animals. Here are a few things from her shop - be sure to check it out today, as many things are on sale!

This fun red ring is right up the alley of anyone looking for something attention grabbing!

This neat hammered metal flower pendant would go with whatever you're wearing! It would be great to dress up an outfit or wear casually with a pair of jeans. Don't forget the matching earrings!

Finally, here are some eye-catching Swarovski earrings! I just love how the chain flows down. I can picture them being worn and swaying as you walk.
