etsy finds

I've been spending many hours trawling through Etsy this weekend and I discovered so many treats that you might like also. I'm hoping to share what has caught my eye through out the week. Today's finds, although some have since sold it's good to know which seller to keep an eye on.

I've been keeping my eye on some old drawers abandoned on the verandah of a house at the end of our street for sometime now. It was the drawer liners that drew my attention. Today good timing had me walk past as the owners were arriving home so I quickly summonsed up the courage to ask if I could have the drawer liners if they were not wanting them. The deal was I should take the drawers too, so now I'm the lucky owner of two floral draw liners... and two odd drawers.

And how impressive is the local waitresses hair today, I asked her how she managed to do such a neat job and she told me she spent many years as a ballerina. And that was my Sunday...
