The first time I heard about Etsy was on Martha Stewart's show. I can no longer tolerate her show due to her liberal views which she spouts liberally. Anyway, Etsy is a website where you can sell and purchase handmade items of all sorts. It's very easy to use and there are some really interesting things. I've made a few purchases this summer. I like to purchase gifts in advance so I can be more thoughtful and sometimes save money. This is one of my daughter's upcoming birthday presents:

It's a felted mouse that can pop out his cookie necklace home. I love it! This particular seller (Rosemary4Remembrance) had sold her original mouse necklace but made this one special for me just because I asked. She has some cute fall necklaces for sale right now.

Here is one for Charlie, a handmade wooden pull toy and wooden teether from The Wood Garden. The teether was not a big hit. He munches on it only when nothing else is available. The pull toy I'm saving for his 1st birthday.

I signed up to receive Etsy's daily email which contains items that you might not have seen before. I've seen a few things that I liked but unfortunately whomever selects these products gravitates toward the more "green" items. I could not believe my eyes when I saw these:

What are they? They're reusable panty liners, 3 for only $21.95! Here's the shop site if you need it, Pleat. I'm going to pass.
Have you purchased anything from Etsy?
