I missed the last few Fridays of favorites, and it’s late Friday night as I post this Etsy treasury in blues, greens and browns, but I hope you’ll enjoy these selections nonetheless. Many of you are probably attending craft shows at local venues, either as a shopper or vendor, or both—and I am, too. Two weeks ago, I sold at my best craft show ever in Clarinda, Iowa, and I have been working on restocking items and filling custom orders ever since. There will be more about that event in another post, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy these really lovely items from talented Etsy artisans. Just click on the image below to link up with the treasury on Etsy.

This week has flown by as I prepare for a craft show in Clarinda, Iowa next weekend, featuring my crocheted winter accessories from JN Originals. And clearly, Old Man Weather is thinking along the same line, as we have frost warnings out tonight. Meanwhile, I took a break from my crocheted work to highlight some wonderful glass creations on Etsy: stained glass, handblown glass, fused glass, lampworked glass . . . there is a lot of experience reflected in these pieces. If you’re looking for something special to add to your holiday shopping list, any of these items fit the fill.

I’ve noticed that many bloggers do a visual feature on Fridays, perhaps because it’s the end of the business week and visitors have just enough energy to look at photos, but not enough to read posts. In any event, every week I spot beautiful finds on Etsy that simply beg to be shared with others, so I’ve decided to dedicate Fridays to treasuries I curate. The one below consists of handmade clay items that evoke autumn because of their colors. No surprise there, as it’s my favorite season!

As usual, click on the image to visit the treasury and individual listings.
