Mini Roundup: When we have money

The last few months Jus & I have been on a tight budget. While we've bought some presents for each other when we buy ourselves something we try and stick to using gift cards.

A couple of weeks ago Jus & I made a deal. We decided that once Jus got his first pay check we could each buy ourselves a present.

Jus will be buying himself a nice case of beer.

But I'm having trouble deciding what to get. I know I want to get something from Etsy that is made by a wonderful independant artist/crafter and that I will make me feel pretty.

Here are some of the contenders...





I can't wait till we have the spare change to buy something fun.

What's topping your Etsy list?

That bullet necklace is so interesting.. I like it!

You should see my "favorites" list on Etsy right now.. it's insane. I'm currently loving vintage looking jewelry with colorful rosettes on them.. mainly rings and bobby pins. So cute!

i'd go with the beer!
no really, I am obsessed with etsy but its usually all vintage. My top searches are for belted cardigans,cutter quilts, and pretty little tea sets for my Annie girls 3rd birthday (in 2 weeks).
