Serendipity Shopping Day

I wasn't going to go shopping today, but I haven't EVEN had a chance to look for Easter things for the grand kids Easter baskets..too late for that I suppose....but Mother's Day is right around the corner.
Slowly and surely I am getting back on track after the wedding. I had fun coming up with a few surprises for the happy couple and you know.....

I love surprises!

 I will be sharing those pics soon but for now I want to spread the joy of surprises by shopping in some of the stores that treasured me this week.

Apricot Passion OMG! This shop is beyond cute! She has such fun and whimsical wall art I could shop here for days!   She's a new shop owner and I think she has the stuff to become a popular shop on Etsy, I look forward to watching her success!
I know a Mom who would love this!

Pam at GypsythatIwas makes some really crazy crochet things but she also has added this darn cute vintage plate to her shop, I think it is so very cute! You simply must head over there and see her entire collection of crazy fun things...especially the baby boob hats for the new Mom!

There are many, many...ok...MANY jewelry stores on Etsy. I found these darling black and silver earrings at ForHerEarsOnly....cute name right? Her prices are reasonable and she has FREE SHIPPING when you use her code YEAR2012. Mom can always use another pair of earrings!

I love shopping this way....I have come across some of the most wonderful shops through the treasuries made on Etsy! Abundantearthworks is no exception! She has some beautiful wire wrapped pendants in her shop. This is one of my favorites!

Mom will always accept jewelry as a gift! Did I mention there are many, many....MANY jewelry shops on Etsy. But at this shop, you can get a pendant AND a matching card! Karen at  TheVenusCollection creates beautiful watercolor art and then uses her art to make jewelry and cards. Lots of Mom possibilities here too!

I love this label idea at RetroModChic! I think the organized Mom would love a set of these! Check out the other tags and frames in her shop too!

Don't you just love the blue in these earrings? So sweet! VeritasCrafts made them along with so many other beautiful things to look at for Mom! Another amazing jewelry artist!

Sometimes the art just makes you smile. Kiramic has a style all her own and I find it sweet and very cute! These plates are the perfect thing for Mom's cupcakes....unique and functional too!

And if Mom loves her garden, there is this FELTED, that's right, felted tree character at HeartFeltbyAndrea . Felting is a wonderful fun art and Andrea definitely has fun with it!

Whew! That's a lot of shopping! I need to go put my feet up now and ponder all these choices! I hope you had fun tagging along on my shopping spree!
