Etsy Fun From Blogging Friends...

 I enjoy shopping from blogging friends etsy shops~ there is such wonderful creativity and vintage items out there!  I thought I would share a few fun finds and great shops with you ! Look at this fun wood checkerboard  with a Noah's Ark design that I received from Kim of  My Domestic Bliss .  She has a fun vintage   etsy shop  and is the best kind of blogging friend!  This board will be perfect at our lakehome which is decorated in old lodge style!
Another great find was this this set of two little vintage Italian tole lilies- I just love the colors and chippy look of the paint!  They are probably from an old chandelier!  These came from Beth of Gypsy Fish Journal .  She has two wonderful  etsy shops .  I think these are beautiful display pieces or I may use them in a art assemblage~ we'll see!
 In this morning's mail, I received these two fun old games!  They were wrapped like a gift~ so fun to open.  They came from Beth of  Elizabeth Holcombe Words & Whimsies .  I love her wonderful whimsical blog and her fun etsy shop Dime Store Chic!
 I hope you enjoy visiting as much as I did...I hope to be visiting lots more etsy shops soon!
Until next time...
