Playing Favorites on Etsy

Like so many other brides, Etsy has been a huge source of inspiration for me while wedding planning.  When I’m not looking for the perfect brooch to accent my dress (more on that later!) or reading DIY tutorials, I like to jump from shop to shop using the “Favorites” feature. You’ll end up finding things you never even dreamed of, like soap made from beer. Yes, I said beer.  I think my family might see this in a holiday gift swap…

For today’s favorites jump, I actually started from decor8, where Holly had linked to an item in things by bubbo-tubbo that I liked for myself (not wedding related…although it seems that bubbo does calligraphy).  I clicked on bubbo’s favorites and immediately noticed these Chic Calendar Tags:

What a cute way to count down the days!  Elle’s Studio has charming paper products, including sets of “Crazy Numbers”!  Are you having a Christmas wedding? Do you need table numbers? How about these:

The numbers 1 through 31 (well more than you’ll need!) are included in the Christmas Brights letter set.

The studio also has a monthly special.  September’s special includes a calendar as well as journalling tags.  Love it!  While checking out Elle’s profile, I noticed that today is her birthday. Happy birthday, Elle!

In Elle’s favorites, I found a collection of ribbons, rickrack, and more in an item called Trims n Things from Sweet Things by MaraMay.  MaraMay puts together these unique pieces in complementary colors – no two are alike! How much fun would these be to use if there was one in your wedding colors?

Take a look at her Patiotic Picks, too.  She suggests using them on cupcakes!  They look like a really easy DIY project, too.

Finally, I reached an item that made me nearly faint.  It is possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen on Etsy!

Tutus for your dog or cat from Weeping Willow Creations.  Oh. My. Word.  And, you can order matching ones for children (and adults!).  This makes me want to include a dog in my wedding party, and have it match the flower girl.  *swoon*

Whew! *wipes forehead* I must know, because I’m sure you have one too: What Etsy item made your jaw drop recently?
