Etsy Inspiration – Tangerine

Like so many of you blogger/pinterest/crafty types I am in love with etsy. I used to sell on etsy until I ran out of room and time. Hopefully I can start it back up again soon. In the mean time I am satiated by creating color, pattern, and style treasuries that totally inspire me. Since summer is rapidly coming to a close I figured I’d give tangerine its proper place of prominence as a transition into the darker colors of fall. Tangerine is the perfect bridge from summer cocktails to autumn pumpkins. Here are some products I’m just loving. Click on the images for links to the etsy shops. Support home crafts and small businesses by shopping on etsy. 🙂

Bread and Badger makes this adorable Tangerine Mustache Mug. Isn’t it just the cutest thing? It comes in some other really cute colors too. I definitely need a whole set.

As you can guess, I have a soft spot for Chevron. This fabric is the perfect combination of two of my favourites! Chevron and Tangerine. Sew Gracious makes this awesome throw pillow and lots of others with the most darling patterns.

Don’t you just love these hand made epoxy earrings? They are so charming. The would look so lovely with a white summer dress. Silver Lotus Designs makes gorgeous bridal and customized jewelry.

Wouldn’t you be inspired to save money with this precious little piggy bank from Desert Arts Pottery? I know I would. I sooo need this!

I might just have to make this bad boy. Then again I could save myself some time and order it from Ruby and Lucy Frames. The one they’ve made is gorgeous! I have a picture over my bed that is just too small for the wall. I need a great big frame to beef it up and this one is just fanstastic! I love the color combination and the rustic look.

 

 

After my post about note writing, you know all about my obsession with quality note cards. These beauties definitely need to be a part of my collection! They are so whimsical and I know I would be totally cheered up if someone sent me one these delightful cards by Green Grass Press.

 

 

 

I’m not just a fan of the color, but I love the smell and flavour of Tangerine. This tangerine shea butter handmade soap by Eco Chic Soaps looks divine. I love the look of handmade soap as opposed to liquid soap. I have just the right silver dish for this soap.

 

 

 

Amazing Money Saving Tip for Shopping at Target

Face it, you know this happens to you every time you shop at Target. You get sucked in by the mood lighting, bright colors and hypnotic spiral. The fact that I live within walking distance to this glorious place does not help me at all. Here is one money saving tip that is sure to help you out. No, it is not “get a Target card”… while I am saving 5% on every shopping trip I seem to spend more when I’ve got that little red card in my wallet. It is also not the little coupon link in the tiniest print alllll at the way at the bottom of the Target website that you wouldn’t know how to find if you didn’t know it was there. Those things will help you save money, yes, but this tip is way better than both of those.

Here is the tip:

When you’ve got just a few things to pick up, get a handheld basket, not a cart. Start by picking up the heaviest items on your shopping list first, like milk and bananas. Then get the bulky items, like toilet paper. By the time you end up in the clothing and housewares sections the basket will be so heavy and overflowing that you won’t be able to fit anything else, and you won’t want to spend much time carrying that heavy basket around so you leave. This inevitably will save you money. Plus you get a work out. You’re welcome.
