Favorite Things

I love, love, love, the idea of buying handmade.

It's actually not only a love of mine...
it's a commitment!

I wholeheartedly want to support cottage businesses
and cottage farms.

They are what made this country, 
you know??

AND there is nothing quite like
buying a piece of American heritage.

Oh yes...many of the things we make today
are the collectibles of tomorrow.

So it's also investing in the future,
and insuring that the way of life that
started this great country will be remembered
long after we are gone.

So heartwarming!!

Here are some favorite things of mine
from other Etsy shop owners!

Some big changes will be taking place soon here!
Stay Tuned!

Also a delightful "Summer Breeze" giveaway!!
Can't wait to show you!!

Have a joyful weekend!!

Hi Sweetie, I love all your favorites as well and will go check them out.
Just wish that I could support you and others plus fill my nest with the beauty created so lovingly by other hands.
Sending lots of love to you today.
I'll be calling this next week.

Love your favorites. I think that more people are starting to appreciate handmade and recycled.
I think it's wonderful.

Great items! I have a friend who makes the cotton washcloths. I'd never tried one before she gave me one. Now I'm hooked!

Have a great weekend.

Debbie said...

Oh I just couldn't agree more..Love your new finds too...looking forward to seeing all your new things. HUGS

Ohhhh beautiful! I cant help buying handmade either, theres just something special about not getting stuff made this way. So impersonal. :) I share your commitment when I can! :D

Hi Becky, I love your commitment to supporting the handmade community!

I wholeheartedly agree...there are so many talented people with their own cottage businesses that without support their skills will be lost.
PS Loved catching up with your girls wedding photos...very beautiful congratulations!!
Best wishes, Kerry

I tried last Christmas to only buy online from blog friends or ETSY, I know the people on my list will get unique gifts that way. Yep, I have you on the calender for Friday, give a call and we'll make plans! Can't wait

Hi Becky,

I try to do the same. We should buy local, buy USA, buy handmade as much as possible. Supporting each other, or other crafters, growers, in our areas.

Doesn't mean we're going without, but why on earth support China??
