Even though I feel I am constantly carrying on about, I guess there are still many of you out there that are not familiar with this wonderful site. It is a wonderful site where you can buy or sell handmade and vintage goods.

I recently snagged the dog bed cover pictured above at Murphy & Gert's shop. She makes these covers so that you can stuff them with old pillow or duvets. Pretty smart. Because Oliver(my sweet grey dog) is a beast, I got the largest size which is made to fit the dog beds at Costco. Genius! Stop by their shop at

This wonderful whimsical cow painting is from RozArt and she has a great assortment of light hearted paintings. Check out her shop at

I am always on the hunt for unusual mirrors for my client's homes and I recently stumbled upon this source who makes mirrors and such out of seashells and beach glass. This mirror can be found at

One of the most fun ways to make a bathroom or bedroom kid central is by changing out the hardware. I just love these hand painted knobs from DaRosa. So sweet and charming. Check out their shop at

There is so much to see and find on Etsy. I can spend hours searching through the categories. I have purchased several items and have found each experience to be pleasant and easy. I have always used PayPal in my transactions and have been pleased with how quickly the goods have been sent out.

  1. Barrie, thank you so much for coming to speak at Virgina Marti College yesterday! It was so much fun and very inspiring. I love the way you are able to use color, and hope I am able to incorporate color into my designs as well.
    Thanks again!
