Etsy Love

I've done very well with Etsy since opening my shop.  I made three sales this week alone! I also have the Etsy app on my phone and when I make a sale it makes a cash register sound, which is the best sound in the world.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, making money is very nice, but it's also a wonderful feeling to know that these lovely items that I have found are going to homes where they will be loved.  In fact one of the items I sold was on someone's wedding registry.  WEDDING REGISTRY ON ETSY?!  How cool is that?

Here are a few beauties that I just listed:

Gorgeous, shabby pink mugs and saucers from Japan...

Also from Japan this quaint rooster spice set:

And a favorite with the Etsy shoppers, ironstone.  Two sweet soup bowls with handles:

Another bonus to selling:  more shopping! :-)

I am so excited that I won enrollment in this course:

Etsy Shop Items

I finally opened my Etsy shop a few weeks ago.  Now that school has started it has been difficult to keep up with everything.  There are not enough hours in the day to complete everything I want to do!  But it's a labor of love.  Some of these pretty items will be hard to let go of, but they need a good home.

A beautiful serving bowl that could serve a multitude of functions other than serving food:

This vintage herb vinegar bottle would look darling with a single flower:

I adore this cow creamer; I love transferware:

And if this cute little pink frame doesn't sell soon, I may need to keep it:

I can't wait for my first sale!
