I thought it would be fun especially with the holidays coming to continue to find great things in wonderful etsy shops and on artfire while supporting handmade and hand altered and maybe giving people some great ideas for the holidays.
I thought posting new found items a couple of times a week would not only let you discover new shops and artisians but just a hint of what s available in these wonderful shops.
My first Suggestions are from artfire shops
1) Handmade By Sheri-mentioned in my last blog entry her knitted work and she are amazing a must see shop with unique items
