Etsy Loves

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to shop, much to my husband's chagrin. In stores, online...it doesn't matter! I love a bargain, I love unique pieces and I love the feeling when I find the perfect gift for someone or the perfect item for me.

After planning my wedding last year I became addicted to Etsy. The creativity of the handmade and personalized items on the site are absolutely incredible! Plus I love to support small business.

The first item I ever ordered from Etsy was our burlap "thank you" banner that we used for our wedding thank you notes.

The banner was purchased from MirtilloShop. Despite the fact that this Etsy shop is in Italy, I was impressed with quick arrival of our banner. It was exactly what we wanted!

Another wedding related Etsy purchase was our return address stamp from ForYoo Designs. It was perfect for all of our thank you notes as well as our Christmas cards.

My most recent Etsy purchase was my monogrammed wine koozie. It was my very first purchase with my married monogram!

It was purchased from Emily of E. Olsen Designs. Working with Emily was absolutely incredible! She communicated with me through all steps of the process and I could not be more pleased with the results. I've only had my wine tote for a week or so now but I've already used it three times. With BYOB patio season upon us, I have a feeling this baby will be getting lots of use. Check out the E. Olsen Designs Facebook page, too! A monogrammed wine tote would make a great gift for a bride-to-be, right?

I have so many other items on my Etsy wish list - husband, if you're reading this...it's a great place for gift ideas {hint, hint}!

I was not compensated in any way by any of these shop owners. I just really, really love Etsy and wanted to share my favorites with you!
