Friday's Fabulous Finds: pretty things

Oh, did I find some treats for you this week. They're not edible treats, but they almost could be, because they are sooo pretty. So pretty. Prepare yourself. I've chosen three shops on Etsy that sell such pretty things...they'll make both your home and you feel pretty. (I'm going for the world-record of how many times I can say "pretty" in one paragraph.)

Yikes! I almost feel dizzy looking at this...yet it's so beautiful to me, too. Look at the colors! Almost like a painting rather than a photograph. Very dreamy.

Another very dreamy photograph. I love everything about this. I want to be in this dream right now! 

Oooh....purty flower....I like. By the way, you should check out f2images...they have over 200 images that are just as gorgeous as these!

I love how this photograph looks very if salvaged from a fabulous photography studio of a hundred years ago.

And now, may I introduce you to my new favorite jewelry seller EVER on Etsy? I'm in awe of the one-of-a-kind pieces thatjewelrygirl churns out regularly. Remind me to buy all future necklaces from her, please! So vintage, yet unique and modern...just my style!

This orange one is delicious. Victorian yet...modern.

For those that prefer a more delicate piece....yet it's no less eye-catching and fabulous!

I like how many of her designs are asymmetrcial, yet have a theme that makes sense. Like this one, where she's included a honey bee, flowers, and a crystal that is the color of honey. Genius!

Aww. I mean really. There are no words.

Perfect wallet in pink, green & orange

Now this one might seem a little random, but my wallet totally fell apart the other day, so of Etsy I went! Now I haven't actually purchased a replacement yet, but these wallets by happykathy are at the top of my list. It's actually fairly difficult to find handmade wallets that have all the slots for credit cards too - more than just a coin purse. These all have the slots inside that I like. The fabric above is my favorite I think.

I love this fabric too - very striking.

And this one is very fun. I'm getting into pink more and more these days...never thought I'd say that.

Well, there you have it, folks. This week's obsessions. I mean fabulous finds. Head over to their shops, browse around a little...maybe even tell 'em I sent ya. :-)  Don't you feel pretty now, just having looked at pretty things?
