Vintage Cabs and Jewels Oh My

I myself love using vintage materials in my creations and so does Posh Adornments on Etsy.  While checking out this shop I have absolutely fallen in love with her rings that are made from vintage glass cabochons and cameos. The one in the picture above is one of my favorites but she also carries some funky Gothic and punk creations and because the materials are upcycled vintage they are also eco friendly. Posh Adornments prices are very reasonable and they also ship internationally.  If you are a Twilight fan make sure to check out this Ornate Ruby Red Ring it has Volturi written all over it!

Amazing and Natural Toddler Toys

If you are a mom like me you have probably been concerned with all of the news about dangerous lead in toys and chemicals used to produce children's items.  Well here is your answer FELT! jacksbeanstalk is a wonderful shop on Etsy that sells beautiful and natural hand felted toys for children and toddlers.  There are a variety of goodies for your little one such as counting balls, felted fruit, and even some adorable animals.  This shop will even make custom items and special pieces for gifts.
