Etsy Addiction....Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday!!! Be sure to stop by How Sweet the Sound to check out all the links for Pink Saturday & say Hi to Beverly, our lovely host. Today is the final day to enter to win one of 3 pairs of KN Karen Neuburger designer Breast Cancer Awareness PJs. Click the giveaway link below my header & leave a comment on last weeks Pink Saturday post to be entered to win. I'll be choosing the winners tomorrow using Random.org

Several months ago I won a giveaway on Sweet Cuddle Cakes blog for 4 chenille wipes from Henry Weston Kids on Etsy. I LOVE the pinks she chose for me & the other side is super soft chenille. These are so perfect for washing dirty little faces!

I've added Henry Weston Kids to my Etsy favorites and am really wishing I could afford to buy myself this Hot Pink Bag Gotta Love PINK for my upcoming birthday! It amazes me that she MAKES a purse like this with her own two hands and a sewing machine.

The fabulous quality of the wipes I won started my new addiction with Etsy. I knew about Etsy before, but I had never ordered anything. Shortly after receiving my wipes, I decided that Melanie really needed a couple of fleece covers for her cloth diapers. Fleece is great for a breathable cover over a fitted cloth diaper. I did a search on Etsy for fleece diaper covers and quite a few came up. One in particular caught my eye, so I decided to check out her site. Wild Child for Babies just celebrated their one year anniversary on Etsy & the prices are fabulous! I ended up doing a custom order to get the size & patterns I wanted. I was so impressed with how quickly I received my covers. Because they are fleece, the fabric does pill some, but on the prints I chose I think it just makes them that much cuter. Melanie LOVES her fleece covers. I chose the side snapping rather than a traditional soaker to make clean up easier if she has a poop accident.

I have since bought several more things from Etsy, I'll be talking about them soon! Do you have a favorite Etsy seller? I'm thinking about purchasing as many Christmas gifts as possible from sites like Etsy & Art Fire and would LOVE recommendations.

I love the pinks you've featured today. I'm not much of a shopper so I have no stores to share with you, just wishes for a great day.

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!
