A Very Elloh Christmas and Other Etsy Buys

Now that all the Christmas gifts have been opened, it's time to unveil those that I bought on Etsy. As always, funky finds from the beloved Elloh, http://www.elloh.etsy.com/, played a starring role. I bought two of her wonderfully quirky screen printed dishtowels and an always crowd-pleasing heirloom of the future ornament for my sister. In turn, my sister bought two of her dishtowels for me. She also bought a print for her boyfriend, which turned out to be of the Presidential Facial Hair Hall of Fame, the very same motif that graced one of the dishtowels I gave her. Oh, how we laughed Christmas morning.

Abe Surfing Dishtowel from http://www.elloh.etsy.com/ given to me by my sister.


Ode to Julia Child and her Favorite Ingredient Butter Dishtowel from http://www.elloh.etsy.com/, also given to me by my sister.


And now we're up to the gifts I gave her. Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner Limited Edition Ornament from the Heirloom of the Future Series by http://www.elloh.etsy.com/.


You're Gonna Make it After All Dishtowel by http://www.elloh.etsy.com/.

Presidential Facial Hair Hall of Fame Dishtowel from http://www.elloh.etsy.com/. (Check out Van Buren, Honorable Mention, skulking at the bottom :)


Lace Bow Necklace from http://www.mamaslittlebabies.etsy.com/. My sister put it on that day, as she did with last year's Mama's Little Babies necklace.
Summer Berries and Cream Charm Bracelet by http://www.kimmsmith.etsy.com/. This one was for my mom. She stared, turning it over in her hands as she said, "Somebody made this?" That's a compliment for handmade jewelry if ever I heard one!


Buffalo Wings and Celery soap by fellow EtsyNJian http://www.robynsnestboutique.etsy.com/. The bf thought these would be a riot for his sister (we haven't confirmed this yet, as we haven't gotten together for our gift exchange. But I don't think she reads this, so we're good :) In case you're wondering, they don't smell like wings. I actually had an extensive and sophisticated list of scents from which to choose. (In case you're wondering, I went with a nice vanilla blend.)
This lovely headband trio was for Mom and comes to us from EtsyNJ's own http://www.purplelicious.etsy.com/. Here we have the Black and White Houndstooth model.
Beige, Red, and Black Plaid Headband from http://www.purplelicious.etsy.com/.


Black and White Wildflower Headband from http://www.purplelicious.etsy.com/.


How charming is this Needle Felted Mama Bird and Nest? It's for the bf's mom, and it too hails from an EtsyNJ creator, http://www.chimera.etsy.com/.
