So, yesterday was my birthday, and I told you guys I was expecting a fair amount of Etsy goodies as my presents... wanna see? Here they are (minus the earrings I already posted about):
A pendant from COOB Originals, I was totally bummed when I saw that this had been sold a month ago or so, but tptally psyched when I opened it up yesterday!! :D Made from a broken skateboard deck, this guy's really into recycling- he even packaged the pendant in a box he made out of some cardboard packaging, making this purchase even cooler, if you ask me.
I got this print, purchased from Kilkennycat, and after I opened it we both spent some time examining it to see if it was a print or a painting. The quality is amazing. Reminds me of good times in my old Volvos :)
And last but not least, I got this ring from Mixco. It's ceramic and it is so totally rad, I'm not sure what else I can say about it.
I guess I should also mention this *early* birthday present I got- lucky me, I checked the mail the day this came in, and hubby said "well since you already know what it is, you may as well open it now" :D I wear it all the time, it's probably my favorite thing as of late. It's a heart-shaped silver locket, with the front shaped like feathery wings. Both of the wings flip open to reveal the inside (which is currently empty on mine, but one day I'll stick something in there :) ). It was purchased from FashinJunkie4Life, on her private website, though, not from her Etsy shop. Since I have a million silver chains on hand at all times anyway, I don't need another and she offers a "just the pendant" option on her website that she didn't have in her Etsy shop.
I think I got some pretty fun handmade stuffs this year. I mean, there were also plenty of things bought from the box retail giants, but I think these handmade items give such a nice touch :)
