I don't think that I've raved about Etsy much before, and I don't know why I haven't! I love Etsy. Love. There are so many great things that you can buy that are handmade and eco-friendly, what can be better than that? Another thing I think is great is that the shipping is always super reasonable. Its not like ebay where you pay $2 for the item and then $25 for shipping. I love it.

My most recent Etsy purchase were two soapdishes, one for my bathroom and one for the kitchen, from the seller Sumiko. They looked pretty in the pictures, but when I got them, the pictures did not do them justice! They are beautiful. Even my husband thought that they were pretty cool :)

Here is the one I purchased for the bathroom:

The seller actually pressed a real Hydrangea leaf into the clay, so you can see the veins and everything. It's beautiful.

This is the one that I got for the kitchen, and its equally beautiful. The picture does not show how pretty the flowers are.

So my point is, if you haven't had a chance to check out ETSY yet, you should. You'll be surprised at what you can find.
