My Latest Etsy Purchases!

I found the cutest things on Etsy for my nieces and nephew for Easter!

These are I Spy Bags made by Kimberly of KNH Designs.
The kids have to find the items listed on the card within the window!

Photos are on the back for the little ones!

The oldest who is turning 9 this month, has a more difficult version. In addition to the items listed, she must also find 11 individual white treasures that are not listed....tricky!

Visit Kimberly's shop at or on Etsy. She also makes wonderful quilts, blankets, hooded towels and more. Such great gift ideas!

Also this week I received a fun crocheted scarflette from Maria of 365 Bags.

This is 10 feet long and can be wrapped in a variety of ways for a unique look. Maria also makes these in other colors!

She makes adorable accessories. I love her hats!!!

This flower headband is perfect for Spring!

Check out Maria's shop on Etsy. She also has a blog.

So the last pottery class is Monday night. :(

I love how my plate came out. I have no shame in admitting that it came out perfect...uniform and level! The glaze is super funky! The first glaze did not take all the way since I handpainted it on. I like the look of it though so I just put a coat of clear on top of it!

This other piece came out cool. It is a plate/bowl....somewhere in between!

I have 2 more pieces that were being fired that hopefully look great! I used a stamp around the pieces which created a cool design! My fingers are crossed! Thank you for reading....Until next week....Val :)
