Today I thought I would share some of my favorite things on etsy right now. Etsy can be difficult to navigate, what with the thousands of sellers. I know that when I am searching for a specific thing, I have to wade through piles of ugmos to get to the pretty. One trick I employ is to keep track of things and sellers that I like, and then look at what their favorites are. This will usually lead to good stuff.
Here are a few things I've been coveting:
I love this hat by Liza Rietz. New styles and colors come out pretty often, and I think I will treat myself to one in the fall. I'm a hat girl, but with this short haircut I can't seem to find one that doesn't make me look like an egghead. I have high hopes for this one.

Handmade Doily Rug by ladies & gentlemen. I think it would be really pretty if we had a foyer in which to greet our guests. We would also have an umbrella holder and hat rack. Instead we just have a front door. It works.

Doily Clock by uncommon. I like a lot of their items. 

Although there appears to be a bit of a trend towards doilies here, I have probably zero doily objects in my house. I don't know what traditional doilies are really for, but I do like the pattern work quite a bit, and the intricate handiwork that they represent. 

Love this very simple ring by les things. I am not into lots of flash on my fingers, because that would draw attention to my nails and lack of general attention to manicures and such. I am kind of grossed out by long nails. We aren't tree-scalers, so why does anyone need long-ass nails? 

Stockholm Pleated Messenger by ikabags. It's big. I like stripes.
