5 friday Finds #30

Hello there!  How has your week been?  Good I hope!   
It has been quite a busy one here, but I feel like I am finding a good rhythm to my day and settling  back into the school routine and starting to actually feel like I am being productive.  I have discovered the joys of podcasts while I crochet, I think I will do a post about what I have been listening to next week, I am so inspired and raring to get stuck into my woolly business!  It feels great to have some direction. :) 

So anyway, today it's time for some more lovely Etsy finds, here we go! 

1. Sol Maldonado is the crochet designer behind the lovely shop bySol, it is full of gorgeous crochet patterns like this 'Yummy Flower granny square', what a fabulous texture in this pattern, it looks so squishy! I also like the cute little ice cream cones, there's lots to check out in this shop. :)

2. I love the gorgeous handmade necklaces and brooches made by Pera P Kraljic in her shop Percee. I guess you could call her a textile jeweller, lots of beautiful things here that are a little bit different. :) 

3.There are lots of beautiful hand painted ceramics in the shop joyelizabethceramics.  Made by Joy Elizabeth, I love this little cloud plate and the robin jugs, so cute!! 

4. Melodie Stacey is the artist behind maidolls, an amazing shop full of OOAK art dolls, drawings and embroideries.  Her dolls are beautiful, how could I go past them in their gorgeous knitted dresses! Beautiful work!

5. EsteMacleodDesigns is the shop of talented artist Este MacLeod, where she sells her prints and original artworks, I loved all the work in this shop, it was hard to pick just two to show you here! 
Este also has notebooks and cards for sale too, for all us stationery addicts out there. :) 
I have noticed that Etsy are now selling Gift Cards that can be used in lots of shops to buy things.  Perfect for people who like to choose their own presents, it is so nice to browse Etsy knowing you have money to spend, what a treat!  I think I might get one for my sister for her birthday, she loves a bit of handmade and would enjoy choosing something special I think. :)

So that's it for today, I hope you all have a lovely weekend and maybe get a little bit spoilt on Valentine's Day tomorrow.   
I'll live in hope, although I don't think my fella has even realised it's Valentine's Day!  I might make him his favourite chocolate pudding for dessert, I'm such a romantic!! ;) 

Have a good one!
