Best of Etsy: Fall
What did we do before Etsy? Attend endless antique/craft/art fairs in hopes of finding something that might catch the eye? There are only so many weekends in a year. Thankfully Etsy makes it easy to search for whatever we fancy in the realm of handmade goods. From soap to baby clothes, furniture to sculptures, it’s all there. (Inside your computer, that is.) Not only are there endlessly new and interesting items to peruse, the option to customize and personalize just about anything you could desire makes Etsy the best site to visit first for gifts. (Gifts for yourself count, too.)
Here are a few new additions that piqued our interest, and will hopefully do the same for you as well. Stay in your jammies and kick your feet up- this shopping trip only requires a mouse and a credit card.

Remember the lined penmanship paper in school? A great gift for a teacher, this lovely little canvas throw pillow reminds us all of how we learned to write- and also that we could use some more sleep.

This pearl and silver necklace feels like it is paying homage to the prim 50’s, but in a more modern and subtle way. No one can deny the cuteness of a bow, and the slightly green pearls add a touch of old-school sophistication.

Love wine, cute home decor and keeping your loose ends tacked up in one place? Get organized in a vino-inspired way. This cork board is compiled of -wait for it- corks from wine bottles, which makes it far more interesting and attractive than a standard Office Depot number.
