Homemade and Wholesome

I have a love for most all things homemade whether it's a good meal, decorations, clothing, home decor and the list goes on and on. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at something and thought I can do that, then I try it and it's anything but what it was suppose to be. But every once in a while, something actually turns out nice and it never fails every time, my husband says "you should sell those" but that's the thing with homemade items, I don't think others (including myself) realize how much time goes into these items. And just because it's "homemade" doesn't mean it cheap to make.
But with that being said I love the uniqueness of all things homemade.
I love the doors that esty has opened up for those lovers like myself.

I thought I would share with you some of my favorite esty shops...

First, Little fish in a big pond

It's a DIY shop, that sells the pattern, fabric (all ready cut), thread and ribbon for pillowcase dresses.
About a year ago, before I was even pregnant I purchased a few patterns and with the help of my grandmother (which makes it even that much more awesome) we got them done and I have to tell you they were so easy!

Excuse the picture lighting, Abby was sleeping and I was trying not to wake her but I can't wait for her to fit into them as a dress and then as a shirt when she's older.

Then there is And Jane, she has so MANY cute and unique bows, this is what I ordered Abby for St. Patty's Day

The next lady, I'm yet to order from but I can't wait for the day, I seriously went though all her "sold" items a few nights ago and fell in love with so many things, I love the detail in all of her work. She makes one dress at a time and this is the Easter dress she has now.

Tell me how cute this little girl is...

And then on Saturday I got the sweetest gift for Abby from She She Made.
Thank you so much Ashley for your kindness.

But my favorite "homemade" gift of all...

Just as there is a trend toward high tech today, there is another trend toward high touch - homemade and wholesome.

Realized me links aren't working, if you go to esty, go to shops and enter the shop name, if your interested.


  1. Love it!! What a nice picture of you and Abby!!

  2. Thanks for sharing these shops...etsy has so many shops that it's sometimes hard to find the really good ones. I'll be looking at these for my little Bug!
