Pamper Yourself with These Great Shops on Etsy

Oh my! I've really been treating myself lately with handmade jewelry, soaps, candles and other pampering products on Etsy. Here are some of my treats and the links to where you can splurge on yourself!

I am thoroughly addicted to Sunbasilgarden's huge bath bombs - they are the perfect size for big tubs! My favorite scent is Rose but Lauren offers lots of other yummy scents, like Oatmeal and Honey and Buttercream Cupcake.

Another of my favorite scents is Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Quiltnut has perfectly captured the scent in her fabulous bath salts. Dawn offers them in 3 oz. or 8 oz. packages and she has a wide variety of scents to choose from.

Looking for some luxurious body cream? Check out Shinycatcreation's Etsy shop. I adore my 4 oz. jar of Spiced Pear body butter. The scent isn't overpowering and the cream is so smooth. Other scent choices include Coffee Cake, Lily of the Valley and Milk Chocolate. Mmmm!!!

And I'm glad I finally shopped at LostRiverRags awesome soap and candle shop. I recently ordered a 4 oz. Soy Wax Candle in the Victorian Christmas scent. It is spicy and warm and makes me ready for the holidays! She also has super adorable soaps, lotions and body splashes.

RoseRidgeCreations makes the softest, cutest custom fleece socks. I recently ordered a pair of the brown and blue floral socks and I was so pleased when I tried them on! Rose's shop features tons of cute patterns - I'm sure you will find one you love!

Looking for some unique handmade jewelry? I have two shops to recommend. I was super thrilled with my awesome red-orange adjustable cluster ring by kikisvintage. This ring is so fun to wear and I love the colors! Kiki's shop has lots of fun vintage finds, including a 1950s white glass bead necklace that I've got my eye on!

I was also tickled by the whimsical fish necklace sent to me by Wyldcat's Creations. She has some really neat sodapop tab anklets and some super affordable, fun fleece scarves.

Be sure to stop by these great shops and buy handmade!

Fantastic Handmade Holiday Items from Gingham Girl on Etsy

Are you looking for a custom handmade item to jazz up your kitchen for the holidays? You've got to stop by Gingham Girl's shop on Etsy - it's wonderful!
I've bought several sewn items from Vicky over the past couple years, including pot holders for the 4th of July, Christmas and Halloween as well as the prettiest blue and brown damask craft apron for my first craft fair.
I've always been thrilled with how well the pieces are constructed, the care Vicky takes in wrapping each item and the speed at which they arrive at my home. Vicky offers everything from tiny seasonal tissue covers to pretty tea cozies in a variety of prints.

Here is the fun candy corn themed pot holder I bought for my mother-in-law

Here are some other holiday items in her shop that you can still pick up!
