My BFF and I both have a September birthday, and our plan was to go out to lunch together somewhere in between to celebrate. You know that saying “best laid plans”-a few days before we were to go she had a family emergency that has kept her busy ever since. We did manage to get our birthday lunch in last weekend, better late than never!
She has a terrible time figuring out what to buy for me, so a few years ago we came up with a great idea-we make “gift” favorites boards at Etsy and share them with each other, giving us ideas or even specific items. I love it because I know we are helping out a small business person as well. I always try to pin a variety of things in a range of prices, so far it has worked out really well. She got me a cute little bee charm for on a necklace or bracelet, and this:
Love it!!! It reminds me a lot of the sweaters I’ve picked up on our various travels to Ireland-except I don’t have one in this color, might have to fix that… The detail is outstanding, the pattern is carried around to the back to just like a real Irish sweater.
The sweater came from Ready To Wear For Dolls. She doesn’t have any sweaters like this available at the moment, but she has plenty of other cute things. Have I said how much I love Etsy?!?!?! 🙂
