Last Minute Shopping, Anyone?

I just found out that another friend of mine (check out her blog: HERE) has opened an Etsy store ... actually, she has three ... one for her vintage inspired pieces, one specifically for the earrings she makes and another for vintage beading and craft supplies ... all sorts of yumminess!

Here's a sampling of her earrings:

Are samples of items you could find at her other shop:

Do yourself a favor and go check out the goodies she has for sale ... I'm pretty sure you'll be blown away & her prices are more than reasonable. Have fun ... and let me know if you decide to buy one of her trinkets (even if it's for yourself).

Oh! ... and if anyone happens to have an inexpensive and foolproof recipe for uber-tasy cookies, I am all ears! I have a cookie exchange party a week from today ... EEK!

Oh, these pieces look yummy, but I've promised myself not to look at shops until I finish my gifties, and I am still working! I want so many things, though! I was going to make a Santa list, and then there were even more cool things to add all the time.

Have you ever made Mexican Wedding Cakes? They are the round butter cookies with pecans and covered in powdered sugar. Easy, but time-consuming. There are also some great oatmeal whole wheat cookies that may not look festive but are awesome. I also just got some great fudgey cookies from the swap I was in, and she sent a recipe! They look pretty easy, but I haven't made them. Let me know if you're interested in any of these.

Beautiful daughter goes against the grain and doesn't want to pierce her ears - sometimes I wish she would just so I could buy her pretty earrings!

A favorite cookie at our house is lemon bars - definitely cheap and easy! Most recipes are similar - Here's one:

I just knew that if I asked you all would have some thoughts & now I have tons of options to try - thanks!

cindy said...

Oh wow, she has some beautiful things...I'm thinking I might have to whisper into Santa's ear about that! LOL. The only way I find cool Etsy shops is when other people thank you! : D As for a cookie recipe, yeah...the doughboy, break and bake package! LOL. Every time I make those people think they are homemade!


Robyn said...

La Belle has made some beauties. Love the cross!

oh, and for anyone that is wondering, that rosary (the black cross at the bottom) is REALLY high on my wish list ... hint, hint. :)

Those pieces are so beautiful, especially the Mona Lisa pendant and the silver locket. That is so sweet of you to showcase her talents!!
