I made you Sweet Potato Cookies with leftover mashed sweet potato my Dad’s infamous pie. I mixed up the dough. I portioned out little walnut size balls. I popped them on the baking sheet and into the oven. Then I sat down and made a terrible mistake. Good things did not happen. Not as good as these awesome cards from The Beautiful Project.
See… I started browsing Etsy.
Thirty minutes later my Sweet Potato Cookies were sad little creatures. They were hard enough to pack into a canon and use as a weapon to storm some unsuspecting village… if I were in to that sort of thing.
Truth is… I didn’t really want cookies. I really wanted to shop.
Instead of cookies, I bring you Etsy. Cute. Handmade. Precious. All from happy crafters. I’m shopping all Etsy this holiday. I like knowing that people as kooky as me are making me cool things. Also, it’s impressively cheap. Also, I think my neighbor is cooking fish sticks for dinner. On Thanksgiving!? Very distracting.
Look at this photo from Meganlee. It’s so simple and gorgeous. Want. Maybe a picture like this will be just the inspiration I need to write that dang cookbook. Yes. I think this will do the trick.
Now excuse me while I try to do something about this fish stick smell.
These hand-cast, porcelain replica milk bottles are beautiful. Pretty and functional and dishwasher safe, making my world a better place.
I don’t wear a tremendous amount of jewelry, but I love pieces that are simple, colorful and fun. DaisyChains, I like what you’ve got going on.
Handmade stuffed lady skunk with a scarf and purple ears… how have I lived without you for so long. Pupa. I love it.
Yes. I’m a sucker for pretty food photos. Honey and Jam photos are so calming and serene… a lovely contrast to the chaos that is usually consuming my kitchen. High five.
