Etsy Item of the Day: Sunflower Ring

Link to above item

This sweet ring caught my attention while I was browsing for items to include in my newest etsy treasury Apples and Bananas. The ring was created by Ingrid's Creations on etsy. 

It is made of resin and the ring itself is nickel free. The best thing, in addition to the beautiful design, is that the ring is adjustable. Sweet since my hands are very small. This ring is only $8.95 so you can get beauty on a budget.

Treasury: Love in Black & White

My notebook was featured in this beautiful treasury below. The colors are absolutely fantastic. Make sure to check it out! (The icons are clickable)

Etsy item of the Day: Primitive Raggedy Anne Doll

Link to above item

This pretty little doll immediately caught my eye when I was scrolling through the items that people in my etsy circle had 'favorited'. She is so absolutely adorable. What little girl wouldn't love getting this doll? She would also look great in your country home decor. So lovely.

This doll is the creation of Cranberry Creek 71 make sure to check out her shop. She has lots of too cute folk art creations. Here is a little background info on her: She used to be in the nursing profession but now she sells on etsy full time. She is the married mother of two kids and has a little one on the way in March. Congrats to her family on that! :)

She told me of her love for Folkart, Enchanted, Whimisical, Retro & prim dolls and items. She creates what comes to her and she is currently working on her own patterns and she welcomes doing custom orders. As I said previously, her shop is definitely one that you need to check out!
