Etsy has kind of stolen my heart recently. It’s taken me a little while to get into it, I guess. For ages I’ve been in awe of all those fabulous bloggers who link to endless gorgeous items from the sweetest little Etsy shops, when all I ever seemed to be able to find on there was dodgy looking candles, novelty aprons, and cushion covers that cost about a zillion pounds each. But I’ve kind of found my Etsy mojo lately, and I can’t get enough. It’s doing nothing to curb the tea tray obsession I’m currently nursing, let me tell you. I don’t know what’s happened, but since I bought that pink and wood one a couple of weeks back, all I want to do is buy tea trays. I’m obsessed. I mentioned it to my Mum, and she said ‘You’re just so much like your Grandma, Rosie. She loved a good tea tray too.’ And since a Grandma-stamp of approval is worth its weight in gold in my book, I shall continue to fritter my money away on tea trays to my heart’s content!
I’ve collated a few of the pieces I’m coveting most from Etsy above, and linked them just below. How amazing is that prism wall planter? I think it’d be such a beautiful and unusual addition to a gallery wall. Oh and also, I should have said- this is the start of a new series here on Cider with Rosie! I’ll be putting together a little selection of items from my favourite shops every now and again, and sharing them right here. I think the series will be a fun alternative to the type of wishlist posts I used to write, and I really hope you enjoy it!
Now, are there any really stellar Etsy shops I should know about? Feel free to link your favourites in the comments below! :)
