My Mom Made It Monday!
I have been seeing union jack pillows popping up here and there, and wishing I had my very own. I made a point of telling my mom about my latest desire, and what do ya know... my mom surprised me with her handmade version of the pillow as a thank you gift for all the help I've given her! I am so happy with her creation. Not only do I love the pillow because my mom made it, but it incorporates vintage fabric from my grandmothers collection, as well as a vintage angel pendant that belonged to my great-grandmother. So very special to me!
These vintage inspired tags are the fabulous work of Angela Harris. It was difficult to select just a few images, but I'm sure you will fall for her work based just on these three. I was reading the description of Angela's damask hang tag- here is what it says: "each of these tags was individually cut, punched, strung, coffee dyed and stamped". Can you believe she does all that for such a fabulous price? Check her out- really, you must!

My third and final pick for this weeks etsy post are actually yummies. I probably should have waited until tomorrow for "Food Friday", but I couldn't resist. Whimsy and Spice Brooklyn Confectioners make these to die for looking treats. I couldn't have a bigger sweet tooth. I actually think I dream of nothing but sweets and what I will eat on my cheat day! For this coming cheat day (which is supposed to be Sunday, but ends up being Friday night, Saturday and Sunday) I must have these "Hazelnut Chocolate Whiskey Sandwich Cookies"- YUM!
