Fabulous Friday Finds ...

Each week I choose a theme, search Etsy for nine fabulous items which fit this particular theme, create a beautiful collage, and showcase it here on Friday. What treasure's have I found this week? Read on to find out ...

Back 2 School!

I didn't want to do it, but here we go.  More and more I've been reading blogs where Mom's are talking about their kids going back to school, or starting school soon.  All over the TV are commercials for back to school sales.  It was inevitable.

I thought about doing another summery Fab Friday Finds, but it's time to start to let go of the idea of lazy summer days, and to gear up for the busy school year ahead.

Two out of my three kids are still in school.  Taryne will be a senior (omgosh!) and Autumn is going into third grade (omgosh!). Every August they love going to the store and buying all brand new school supplies.  Shiny new folders, a new bag, nice new pencils etc.

I've actually never thought to look on Etsy for school supplies, but decided to see what there was and I found some great things!

This week each chosen item is either handmade or vintage. Every item is numbered, and direct links to each Etsy shop are listed below the collage, if you'd like to see more from a particular shop.

Enjoy :)
