Etsy much...?

I didn't even know about Etsy until I joined the blogging world. And now? I am 100% hooked and totally obsessed. I've been looking for something fabulous and a little different, without being garish or ostentatious in any way. I wasn't sure what I had in mind, but knew I would know it when I found it...and I certainly did.
Last week, I saw this necklace from Musarra on Etsy, fell in love with it and scooped it right up.It's an antique broach made into a necklace with a rosary chain. I love its elegance with a modern twist--the big pearl and rosary forming the necklace. Classic, but also fun and different. I especially love the fact that no one else will have it. I love unique jewelry.

Today I received it in the mail and was so excited--it was even packaged in a cute little box with a ribbon! It is even more fabulous in person than in the picture. I can't wait until the next event when I can wear this find with my little back dress. Valentine's Day?

What are your favorite etsy stores and finds?

Oooh, that is gorgeous! Make sure you post a pic when you finally get to wear it.

I have to admit, I am an Etsy virgin. I should probably d my credit card a favour and keep it that way. ;)

Gorgeous Etsy find! I actually have a post scheduled tomorrow about my favorite new seller... I'm currently pondering what to purchase...

I heart Etsy!

That is a beautiful piece of jewelry. I have a weakness for pearls.

It really is perfect for you! I think we should start our own little etsy store :) In all of our free time that is (HAH!)

I have to confess I've never looked. It's too tempting for me.

Oh, I die for Etsy. I can't wait to open up my shops again. This move is totally throwing off all my artsy mojo. ;)

That necklace is gorj!

I love the necklace! Its so pretty.

I finally watched it this morning, I think its a good start to the season. I know I want to find out how he gets them to go back...and what about Sun's baby, does she have to go back too? And who was that creepy lady at the end? Are they all going to die of brain aneurysms? Its hard to watch it during the season. I'm not patient enough. What did you think?
