Etsy Wardrobe - More from Delilah's Closet

My new favorite thing to shop for on etsy, DRESSES!!!! There are so many styles and options offered from many talented sellers on etsy. I found a month or so ago while pouncing (big shock, I know!) I ordered this super sweet cupcake pillowcase dress, and I've been hooked ever since. Her dresses are just adorable, well made and shipped very quickly.

I look forward to picking out dresses, and I find myself checking out her shop a few times a week for new styles. Right now she is running a special. A selection of dresses for just 10 dollars!!!

To date, Miss Delilah has 3 of her dresses. Being as roomy as they are I know they will fit her for many months to come, which is a huge advantage when it comes to baby clothes. Once she's out grown it as a dress, she'll be able to continue to wear it as a top.
The above dress is our most recent purchase (my son helped pick it out) and should be here any day now!

Etsy Shopping Spree

If you follow me on Facebook, then you know I love to shop on Etsy! And if you dont, well then you should! One of my very dear Etsy friends makes these adorable beanies, as featured on my little doll! She was sweet enough to send one as a gift for Delilah.
Besides beanies, 2kute makes crochet hats, soap savers, mary janes, wash cloths, scrubbies and appliques. Be sure to check her out.
And as a special offer, when you purchase and item from 2kute from 2/14 to 2/21 you'll receive a 10% discount on your next purchase in my bath and body shop! Just post the transaction ID in the notes to seller and I'll refund your 10%. Excludes shipping charges and can not be combined with any other offer.

So as I mentioned, if you follow me on facebook, I do a lot of Etsy shopping. One of my favorite features on etsy is Pounce. Pounce is a great way to discover shops who have yet to have a sale, as well as shops who have just sold something. I'm one who likes to browse the just sold items.
I'm known to pounce several times a day! One of my recent finds was from I've been looking for a case for my camera for some time now, and this monster digital camera case was just too hard to pass up!
You'll also find cases for all kinds of gadgets, like cell phones, PSP, iPods, and DS just to name a few! There is also adorable pencil cases that any child would be proud to show off at school!

My final Etsy pounce find for today is this feather pen. My house is constantly eating my pens! I can never find one when I need one. You can bet this one from is never too hard to find. This feather is super soft and makes this pen hard to misplace. You might have even spotted this as a photo prop in my shop! So get your shop on and start pouncing, but be careful. It can get costly and addictive!

It's True, I'm Candle Crazed

My favorite candles EVER!!!

I've tried them all, from Yankee, to cheapie Wally World and everything in between, and Auntie Di's has the best! The scent throw is amazing. I'll be burning the candle in the kitchen and I can smell it through out the house. Yankee cant do that. They burn clean and evenly. No wasted wax here.

I truly have an addiction! I'm constantly burning my candles so I can hurry up and buy more. She offers many scents, including my favorites, Banana Nut Bread, Pumpkin Souffle, and Apple Pie.

Not seeing what you want? Just ask her. She's super awesome with stuff like that!

So not a big candle fan? Not to worry. She also has a tart shop which I am equally addicted to! As her name claims, she'll definitely be "tempting" you. Her scents are true to life. After smelling the Banana Nut Bread, my brother asked if there was real banana bread in it! Yah, it's that good.

So head on over, tell her I sent you and pick up some goodies!

Hair Bow Diva

Well it's been a while since I was able to post last. Having a new baby is keeping my hands full! Miss Delilah is approaching 3 months now! Seems hard to believe and time sure does fly.

Back in my scrapbooking days, I used to do a lot of work for one very special lady, Melissa and her sweet daughter Tori. She always had the most amazing and darling hair bows on her baby. So I vowed that if I ever had a little girl, I was gonna dress her the same way. Now back then I never thought I'd have another child, so what a surprise to have Delilah come along!

Since then, the sales from my soap shop have gone to fund my hair bow obsession.

If you've ever done a search on Etsy for hair bows, you know there are tons of choices. One shop that has really caught my eye is If you have a little girl, you need one of these bows!
