Loving Etsy

Hi All~ I had to share some of the fantastic things I recently purchased through Etsy. I couldn't have been more thrilled to get home yesterday and find not one, but TWO packages on my doorstep. Imagine that, they all came the same day... I was like a kid in a candy store and couldn't wait to tear through them both. And when I did, I was ecstatic. Everything was even better in "real life". So........... I felt the need to share with you all.
This is a wood suitcase. It is tattered and distressed in all the right places. The handle is leather and I love the leather ties holding it all together. When  I saw this piece appear on Etsy I didn't hesitate for one second. It was in my cart as fast as I could get it there;)
The blue stripe running down the front couldn't be a better detail. I love this!!
Look at this leather strap.  The picture below if of the interior. It is even beautiful...a bit worn, but I love it that way. Can you tell that I am excited?

And then came the next package all the way from France. These 3 French blue and white plates are so gorgeous and this baby bottle with the blue writing is so precious. You know sometimes when you have buyers remorse??? Well, that was NOT me today. I was happy, happy, HAPPY!!!

I couldn't wait to get flowers into this little bottle. It truly makes me smile. The plates are all the same, but I guess I forgot to photograph all three. Oops!

For all of you who know or don't know, Etsy is such a fun place to shop! You truly can find just about anything and it feels great to support small businesses. My girlfriends and I started MySoulfulHome on Etsy about 6 months and it has been so much fun. We have met so may great people all over the world from it.

The luggage came from Frog Goes To Market on Etsy. Thank you Ellie
The plates and bottle came from La Pomme on Etsy.  Thank you Apol

Have a great evening and I hope you will come back and visit again soon.
