Local Etsy finds this week...

I have to admit that I don't have a lot of time to peruse etsy these days but these two local craft mamas have got something worth sharing today! The first beautiful vase comes to you via Jill at 'bitfolky' who makes lovely jewerly, knits and makes pottery all while caring for her 3 little children up in Penticton, BC. Check out her blog for some great writing on being a creative mom- I had a few good chuckles re: her day of dragging her 3 ones to stand in line at the passport office. 'Nuff said.
The next line up of Matryoshka dolls comes to you via Little Red Caboose by Ella. It seems her shop has a strong connection to all things Waldorf, which I've heard great things about, but which I don't know much about so that's all I'll say here. I love the little faces and characters of these dolls- so simple and lovely.

Oh, thanks for this! Am so honoured to be one an Etsy find.

This is also totally hilarious. I have a new friend, Tash, lives around the corner, and she was just telling me about her good friend, ELLA!, who has an amazing Etsy shop of matryoshka dolls! Could it be Ella of Little Red Caboose?

Smalls. This world is smalls!
