More finds…

I have been rather busy this past week with preparing for a craft show and preparing myself for my cousin’s wedding, so I’ve been slacking at finding you more Minnesota Etsy finds.   So, to make up for my absence, I will post two handmade finds today!

My first find is this sweet little apple pin from .  I really like how Pink Sparrow used a calm light blue for the apple over the traditional red.  This sweet little pin would make a great addition to anyones fall wordrobe!  Pink Sparrow has many, many pretty felt pins in her shop to choose from (I also like the zinnia pins!!), plus other bright and cheery jewelry!

My second find, I assure you, will make you terribly hungry!  I found these delectable cupcake soaps at  Just looking at this cupcake soap, makes my mouth water and my stumache growel!!!  Oh!  I could just eat it!!!!!!  Okay, I’m calm now….  This cupcake soap and You Go Girl Soap’s many other yummy products would make PERFECT birthday, Christmas, Hostess, and, of course, “pamper yourself” gifts! Yummy!

Go ahead, check out both of these great Minnesota shops, your sure to find something you’ll like!

It’s September!!!

This month I will be featuring items from Minnesota Etsy members, in honor of my home State and 150 years of Minnesota Statehood!!!  Yay!  Three cheers for Minnesota!!!

It was a rather cold and rainy day today, the smell of fall approching is in the air.  This unique snail necklace from is my pick of the day.  Seeing this warm rich colored pendant with the serene little snail, brightened my glum, rainy day!   GreenSquirrel has so many unique and beautiful necklaces and rings!  I love her use of vintage buttons, it brings me back to the days of digging through my Grandma’s big tin of old buttons.  Enjoy!
