Rainy Nights

It’s one of those nights. You’re not in the best mood, and the internet (Etsy in my case) sucks you in. It’s also a rare night in Arizona…. it’s raining! It was windy and haboob-ish all day. Then came the down pour! What the heck Phoenix?

By the way if you don’t know what a haboob is…

They are pretty annoying. Any way…. as Etsy entranced me… thought I would post some favorite finds of the evening.

For the Little Ones: Best of Etsy

It can be safely said…. I am obsessed with cute children’s clothing. Not just cutesy flowers and bumble bees, but the kind of clothing that makes them look like little people!  I am talking unique and inspired looks for kids. I am also talking about the things surrounding a child. Toys, artwork for their room, etc. I love these makers on Etsy, providing an alternative to the typical children’s items.  Katie and I went through and picked out our favorites. 🙂

These are my Top Shops on Etsy for those things meant for your little one:

5. Armadillo Dreams– Wooden Toys

I am in LOVE with these unique little wooden toys. They are all Waldorf inspired, handmade, and so dang cute. Here are a couple of favorites from their shop.

No-Shop November

This whole no-shave November gimmick has got me thinking about a challenge of my own. For this month, I am not going to purchase anything clothing or accessory related. Necessities only. I spend way too much money on things I think I need, and am seeing my bank account suffer.

So this lovely month of November I will window shop! I will post things I am drooling over, and who knows, maybe by the end of the month I will know what I can afford and actually make a well thought out shopping choice!

Join me in window shopping!

First up: This amazing twill coat!  Twill Trench Coat from Riordan Roache- $179.99

Resist the Urge to shop!

❤ Amy
