Addicted to Etsy

Vintage pale pink resin beads and Silver and Black speckled glass beads from Diba Beads.

Gosh Tuesday, boy did I splurge! Sometimes it is hard to resist, so I heart certain items and save them for later (when I have money in my paypal). Here are some new purchases from none other than etsy.com. During my search for supplies, I found some great vintage cream speckled beads that look like bird eggs from Blue Storm, beautiful vintage red enamel Maltese cross ring from Cluttered Mind. The beautiful vintage strands featured above just caught my eye, you can't find these colors now and days.


Vintage black leather suede pixie pirate boots, with cut out pattern from Buttons 'N Such.

Speaking of vintage I found these rad Pixie Pirate black suede boots, I've been searching for months to find a cool pair, I looked on all kinds of websites like BC Footwear, DSW and Ebay; but too expensive. I got these girly rockin boots for $37.00 with shipping included. What a steal!

Vintage brass engraved pocket mirror from Capricious Traveler.
Vintage roses embroidered trim from Callooh Callay.

I have a thing for vintage mirrors and lipstick holders; they def don't make them like they used. I found this unique vintage pocket mirror that swivels. I plan on making a necklace out of it and want to do some glass etching on the mirror. I also was astonished when I came across this vintage rose embroidered ribbon; might use it as a necklace or possibly on an assemblage.
