I love my Mum and am incredibly blessed to have two wonderful grandmothers and a mother-in-law who I respect. Next weekend is Mothers Day, an organised opportunity for us to be kind to our Mum’s and take a moment to remind them how much they matter. I am excited that I will be able to see my Mum that weekend for the first time in ages, I tend to see my Mum around birthdays not this day for her.
This Etsy Treasury is just a few cool cards that I found that you could send your Mum.
Check out some of my other treasuries here, here, here and here.
Being a part of a big family there are so many birthdays to celebrate. May is a particularly big month so I thought I would share two treasury lists with you today – one for the ladies and one for the gentlemen.
Fellas step up
Some really cute card ideas here. To all of you having a birthday this May have a wonderful day.
We have a pile of cushions in our lounge room that we don’t use and the ones we do use are grubby and flat. So I went on the hunt recently to see what alternatives are out there and this treasury list was born.
There were so many options and to be fair I really just want 4 or 5 cushions to put some personality into the space. Oh and they have to be snuggle-able so if I am in there watching a movie or reading a book it is there to ensure optimal coziness.
Since our couch is blue/eggplant it needed to be something linen but some red would work too. The USA flag is an obvious shout out to the honeymoon which I like, the fox is just cool, I would have to snuggle the Union Jack when watching Doctor who and the mustache is just cool.
I’m back with my another Etsy Treasury List for the month (I couldn’t resist) and this time I’ve found a bunch of Easter goodies to share with you.
Without meaning too I ended up with a bit of a bunny theme but to be honest it was hard to find things that you could have in your home that didn’t look cheap. I do love the cushions though and the idea of having a couple of cushion covers you bring out at this time of year.
Easter seems crazy early this year and it will be here really soon. I always feel that Easter is one of the markers of time each year, it always feels like a big chunk is gone by Easter which in a way is true.
Easter does of course have a more serious side and is a time of reflection for many of us about Jesus’ sacrifice. Certainly it is for me.
February, the month of love, it seems only appropriate to share some hints for Valentine’s day gifts. Here is my very first monthly Etsy Treasury.
Over the Christmas/New Years break I thought a lot about my regular series. I know that I love writing Monday Etsy Pretties but over the last year there have been so many other pretty things I have found outside Etsy that I have wanted to share. So for 2013 I am changing things up a little.
The first Monday of each month will now be dedicated to Etsy treasury lists. I had so much fun putting together treasury lists like those I did for Halloween, Christmas, and 2013 calendars that I am bringing them back as a regular series. I have some great ideas for lists throughout the year. You can also see all the boards I have created here.
The following Mondays I will travel the interwebs to find you all sorts of pretty things to buy. It could be anything – a new cover to an old classic, a great stationer, fantastic bees wax candles I am up for sharing anything that I genuinely think is pretty.
If you have a shop that you think might inspire me please let me know. I am more than happy to have a look, and if I find something I will share it (no promises though).
2013 will see a real focus on this here blog (keep your eyes out in the new year for all sorts of things happening here). If I am going to treat this seriously, like I do my paid job then it’s time to get organised.
Most of these stores have loads of other options for keeping you organised if you aren’t a blogger so check them out here.
This is the last Monday Etsy Pretty for 2012. I have had a lot of fun finding pretty things on Etsy all year and I hope you liked having a sticky beak around with me.
Don’t forget in the lead up to Christmas to order your 2013 Calendar.
There are so, so, so, so many gorgeous calendars on Etsy so do check them out here. Check out the ones I have included in my treasury as well.
Here is my 2012 Etsy Christmas Treasury! So many pretty things to buy and to start you motivated to decorate for Christmas.
I decorate on 1 December so I will put up photos of our place shortly. I adore Christmas so be ready for it.
This week is one giant hint to anyone out there on the hunt for a Christmas present for me. I found a ceramic owl at Bed Bath N Table at Chatswood Chase. Its technically a lantern but I would like to see it in my kitchen used to hold all of the tea bags we own.
This fantastic handmade ceramic owl cookie jar is available Muddy Me.
