Spreading Etsy Love

**psst- don't forget to enter my Etsy giveaway here!**

Today I decided to share some of my favorite things from Made In Vermont Etsy artisans. Vermont is a pretty artsy place and almost everyone I know has some sort of craft that they are into. So it's no surprise that there are many talented Vermont crafters on Etsy. Here is a sample of some of my recent faves:

Soap and Organic Wash Cloth Set - by fuzzybunny
I love everything about this gift set! It's organic (and you know I am a crunchy granola type) and the colors are so bright and cheerful. It would make a great gift for anyone- who doesn't use soap?? And I especially love the chunky look of the handmade wash cloth- you aren't going to find anything like that at Bath & Body Works.

Here is another product that speaks to my crunchy, granola side- a jewelry box made out of sustainable wood! And it's gorgeous, isn't it? I really like the two tone look from the two different types of wood used to make it and the craftsmanship is unbeatable.

I love amber and this necklace showcases many of the beautiful tones that it can come in. From light blush pink to deep burnt orange the stones in this necklace are beautiful! I like all of the irregular shapes too- goes better with my personality than uniform beads- hehe!

Since this is sort of a wedding themed blog I figured I should include something applicable to that (you know, other than my awesome hand-crafted wedding invitations that are on Etsy!). ArtfulBeginnings suggests this charming blue handkerchief be your 'something blue' and you can customize the text on it to be your vows, a meaningful poem, or perhaps just record the details of your wedding day. Unique AND meaningful!
