Accessories Anonymous: Fabulous Etsy Finds

I have been very busy lately and not able to peruse my favorite Etsy shops quite as much as I would like to. Online shopping- even online window shopping- is one of my favorite things to do, so I decided to spend some time on Etsy today finding really beautiful items to show you. There's no particular theme aside from the fact that they are all accessories and as I said before, they are all beautiful. Enjoy!

"Anita" leather bag, Art On Crafts, $135

Nude Color Wrap Style Belt, A Room of Your Own, $29

Stretch Rosette in Rustic Green, Garlands of Grace, $21

Red Autumn Leaves Brooch, Black Swan Designs, $23

"Hard Candy," Miss Annie May, $86


Doesn't it feel good to look at beautiful things, knowing they were also carefully handmade? Somehow, pieces from Etsy and other (masterfully) handcrafted pieces just seem so much more special to me. I'm always willing to spend a little more on them than I would something similar in a department or chain store. Also, Etsy gives me great ideas and inspiration for making some of my own pieces. They often don't come out quite as beautiful as the original, but it also helps me learn a little more about my craft. 

Have you spent some time on Etsy lately? Leave a comment and tell me about your favorite Etsy shops. I'm always looking for new ones! Have an awesome day!

Thanks for sharing this goodies Renee!
My favorite was that necklace, "Hard Candy", I love chunky and multi-layered necklaces!
That handbag is adorable as well, such clean style!
It's been ages since the last time I spend some time on Etsy, such a shame. It gives such a great energy and inspiration, like you mentioned.

That scarflette is so original and such a beautiful color. Because it's not a full-on scarf, you could totally wear it through the spring, right?

Beth- I would definitely wear it through spring without a second thought. Good call.

Mel- I will check out that listing. :)
