There are many reasons why I enjoy being part of the Etsy community. One, I can find items here that I can't find at the mall. Two, I don't have to go to the mall. The third reason has to do with the fact that I love getting mail. When I order something from a seller on Etsy, I get to experience the anticipation of waiting for a really, really good package. I love opening the mailbox and seeing something other than a flat white envelope or something that is going to go directly into the recycling box. And last week, I was the recipient of this pretty little package.
This is a fabric cuff made by Amy. As she describes it, she makes pretty things from vintage and vintage inspired fabrics and her shop can be found here. I love this cuff. It is so pretty and comfy. There is only one problem: Not all of my clothes match it. I may have to buy another one.
One more reason I heart Etsy: the sellers themselves. I like knowing where my item was made. I like knowing the name of the person who made my item. At times, it's almost like getting something from a friend. Thanks, Amy.
And yes, it is raining again.
