etsy friday finds 04.05.13

Welcome back to Etsy Friday Finds. I apologize for the brief hiatus. If you missed Tuesday’s post about the recent storybook baby shower I threw at my house last weekend (that monopolized every ounce of my free time over the past month…in a good way) click here.

We’ve had some pretty crappy weather in Memphis, TN, lately. It seems like it’s been rainy and dreary and cold for months longer than it was this time around last year. When I checked the weather forecast yesterday, I may have performed a teensy, tiny, extremely uncoordinated happy dance in my office (after I closed the door because I work with all men and they probably definitely would have thought I was crazy, if they don’t already).

Why? I was finally greeted with that adorable little sunshine graphic listed next to above 60° temperatures. FINALLY. I mean, I missed my first co-ed kickball game this week due to the dumb, unnecessary rain. Do you have any idea just how excited I was to play some kickball?

In honor of the beautiful spring/summer-ish weather, my latest Etsy Treasury is all about springtime. Bright yellows, greens, some birds, etc. To browse all of my Etsy Friday Finds posts, click here and follow the thread. Happy Treasury hunting.

Happy Friday, everyone! The weather here in Memphis, TN, is absolutely beautiful right now. So, if you’ll excuse me…a patio with an ice cold beer is calling my name.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Before I head out to enjoy some green beer and bar food at my favorite local Irish Pub, Celtic Crossing, I wanted to share a belated Etsy Friday Finds. This week’s theme is all about the Luck of the Irish. Green, horseshoes, Guinness beer, lucky quotes, beer and some more green.

etsy friday finds 03.01.13

Welcome to the latest Etsy Friday Finds, showcasing my latest Etsy Treasury full of 16 great handmade or vintage items. To see all the Friday Finds posts, click here and scroll to the bottom.

I’d like to start this post out by wishing my Dad a Happy Birthday. He turns…old today (haha love you Daddy).

I don’t know about your Dad, but mine is extremely difficult to shop for, on any holiday. Birthdays, Christmas, Father’s Day—I always draw a blank. He likes golf, his vintage camera collection, his iPad he won for free from some work contest and didn’t even know the value of or how to use it until my sister and I informed him that it was just a silly gadget and we’d love to take it off his hands for him if he didn’t want it, golf, bacon, his dog and…bacon. And golf again. There’s only so many golf gift certificates and accessories you can gift before you start feeling wholly unoriginal. This served as the inspiration for today’s Etsy Treasury list.

Despite what some people think, Etsy is not just for women. There are plenty of unique items out there for Dads and men of all ages. To prove this, I’ve listed 16 items here that I know my Dad would love, including a 6 month bacon club MEMBERSHIP where you are shipped bacon for 6 STRAIGHT MONTHS because HELLO it’s bacon and who doesn’t love bacon?

#1 – leather and wool retro iPad case from etsy shop OSTFØLD
#2 – retro industrial desk lamp/pendant light from etsy shop Ironclad Industrial
#3 – Vintage Black & White Film Camera Wood art from etsy shop Kristen Archer

This camera wood art is from my sister’s shop and features photographs of my dad’s actual vintage camera collection.
