5 Friday Finds #25 - The Holiday Editions

This post contains affiliate links

Hi there! 
Well, it's Friday again and time for some more finds on Etsy.   This week I have found some things that I think would make lovely gifts, well, I would love to receive them anyway!! :)   

Here we go! 

1. First up is this gorgeous self striping merino wool from Stephanie Lemay at rivulettecraft, oh, the things I could make with a few skeins of this!!  I am not fussy either, I love both the rainbow colour way and the grey based one!  And there is plenty more loveliness to be found in this shop, not a place to visit if you are on a yarn diet! ;)

2. I really love the simplicity of the ceramics found at carnevaleclay, these little spoons and spice dishes are so lovely! 

3. There are loads of quirky stationery and tea towels and totes at ableandgame, I had a giggle at a lot of them, definitely making drying the dishes more fun!  ( "Thanks for all the lovely meals" is what I am sure my boys are meaning to say to me, even if they have never actually spoken the words! :) )

4. Jennie from alittlevintagestore makes these beautiful art dolls, with their hand painted faces and detailed outfits, they are so cute!  I would love a Frida Kahlo doll, or any or her little characters really! 

5. There are lots of beautiful art prints from illustrator Elisandra Sevenstar in her shop sevenstar,
I could have chosen many images to put in this post, I really liked lots of them!  I like the sentiment of this bottom one, nice and positive! :)

So it is getting closer to Christmas, have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you making gifts this year?  How is that going for you?  
Are you planning any crafty action this weekend?

I am quite excited and a little bit nervous to be running my first crochet workshop tomorrow! 
Eek, I hope everyone has fun!  Just got to give the house a quick spring clean before the ladies arrive, and we should be all set!

I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the 'More than a Granny' ebook giveaway! If you would like to enter have a look at this post!

Have great day! 




  1. Ooo hope your work shop goes well. Looking forward to hearing all about it. xxx

  2. love the yarn and the print. Sending hooky vibes for tomorrow....have fun and your love for what you do will see you through and carry your guests along with you xx

  3. Hi Julie- Thank you for featuring my yarns in your Friday lineup! How exciting to see it here on your beautiful blog.

  4. I love that yarn! Speaking of Christmas, our tree is already decorated. lol So I've been making some ornaments to fill in any holes. We like to do different themes or colors each year, so this year the theme is silver and blue on our white tree (last year was retro themed). As far as the gifts, only a few have been made and none bought yet, so I'm behind as usual. ;P Good luck and have fun with your workshop!

  5. I love that yarn!! I have decided that I cannot buy anymore yarn without a specific project in mind first. It is just too hard for me to fit projects and yarn successfully together.
    I was going to do some Christmas crochet, but time got away from me--as usual--!

  6. Oh my - I am officially drooling over the yarn! How amazing does that look like?? I will bookmark the shop right away! Thanks for sharing it :)

    Take care
