I love shopping

It's a well-known fact, that I love shopping. It's fun to wander around the shops, touch, feel and try on things, but sometimes it can also get too crowded, hot and distressing. And that's why I love online shopping so much, you can see many, many wonderful items from all over the world, and never leave your own, comfy couch. Wonderful! The only minus-side is that if you're shopping for a certain date like Christmas, you need to order well in advance. And that's not a even negative thing really; what would be better than have all the presents ready early?

Where do I shop online? There are wonderful places like Shopaholic where you'll find the lists for gifts for all occasions, links to the great shops and blogs - just clicketi-click away! And then there's my beloved Etsy of course - that is a one wonderful place, full of handmade things. It has many, many shops, and it can be a bit overwhelming even, so I have chosen you a few gems to check out this Saturday:
  • Looking for wonderful hand knitted and crocheted bags, scarfs and corsages? Look no further than into GreenRabbitDesigns - you'll love everything in there!
  • Are you already a keen crocheter, and always looking new tools? You'll find the most beautiful hooks in Robin's Nest - you may need one in each color!
  • Looking for beautiful jewelry and adorable handmade cards? I have just a place for you: Jane' s Gems and Jewels - wonderful pieces ready to shop or you may also ask a custom piece just for you!
  • New pillows in mind? Or are you looking just something beautiful for your kitchen? Jump into TEJESARITA - it's a patchwork wonderland!
  • Looking for something little but very beautiful and precious for you or as gift? Plumcreek22 is the place to visit - you'll never have a bad hair day again!
  • Pretty pouch or purse needed? A fun plush? HandmadebyNovaMelina has them for sure - and maybe some pretty slippers coming too!
Oh and there would be many, many, many more too, but these above have great products, absolutely adorable sellers and the most wonderful service behind them so I can recommend them to you too! And no, I didn't get paid or receive free gifts (although not a bad idea...hmm...just kidding, dears!) for these, just a happy customer here hello (and showing why I didn't get into the advertising business after all).

I'll leave you with these tonight, happy browsing and shopping, I am off to wrap my precious finds!

Happy December 17th!

Hi Teje,

My wife loves online shopping too. It's actually one of her stress-relievers. She has actually bought a lot of items from GreenRabbitDesigns. Thanks for this list, Mia. I'll definitely ask my wife to check this out.

Mia said...

Lovely to have you visiting, Danny!

And I wish your wife likes the shops in my list, they really are wonderful!

Wishing you fantastic New Year soon!

Warm wishes from Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
