organic shopping?

I was blogged by the lovely Cathy Cullis on her shopping list saturday...
which I was really excited about , as I am a fan of her work!
I thought I'd do my own shopping list thing here, to show some of my favourite etsy finds.
So every Friday.....I'll put in a few items that I love!

my first one is a gorgeous shawl made by
wet felting, silk chiffon, crochet and knitted pieces and threads.
It's from a shop called Living Earth Gallery .
Her work is so organic, and the combination of different fabrics and threads is amazing!
I'm finding it hard to choose a favourite....
to buy!

The second beautiful item I found is a birch bark cuff made by Bettula .
Heather makes jewellery from birch bark and other natural materials, and each piece is simple and delicate....showing the detail and pattern of the wood.
She makes ear-rings , and necklaces too....
and has a sale on until March 21st!!!

The last one is from the very talented Kaylacoo
who I found on flickr and makes the most enchanting and colourful felted brooches and little pictures!
Her work is full of life and the attention to detail is so lovely!

I sometimes buy pre-made pizzas. I think they are pretty awful and have no taste, but if the family are hungry and I'm feeling lazy...t...
