Great Finds and a Giveaway

My friend Sarah has opened a new Etsy shop and has decided to host a giveaway at The Cottage Nest. Since you know we like to keep things simple here, the only rule is that you visit her shop and leave a comment here telling us what you liked the most by Thursday at midnight Eastern time and you will be eligible to win the lovely blue ball jar pictured above. Sigh. I love blue ball jars.
Usually I'm a good rule follower. It's in my DNA. This morning while I was browsing I just didn't have the strength to pick one favorite.

So I picked 3. Seriously, I just couldn't narrow it down any more than that. And this from someone who seems to have lost her will to shop. As soon as I'm done typing this post I'm going to have to sit on my hands to keep from hitting the "add to cart" button.

P.S. Sarah has free shipping for the month of May. Lucky for you! I'm lucky enough to get free shipping all year long because I can just meet her at the Village coffee shop. I guess that makes me double lucky.

P.S.S. Want a dose of great inspiration? Go check out her blog Trixie's Table. Tell her Jen sent you.

  1. ohhhhh LOVE ETSY! Ok, I have a few favorites, but I'll narrow it down to two! I love the cut glass cake stand and the cut glass candy dish. Can you tell I LOVE cut (or pressed) glass? :)

  5. I'm stealing one of your faves....the sweet blue flowered plate. All her plates are beautiful. And I'm always a sucker for the glass luncheon plates. I have a little collection of those, some of which were my grandma's.
    Great shop!

  23. I'm with you, Jen. I can't pick just one favorite. The milk glass vase with the leaf design, the antique footed teacup and the etched grape glass are ALL calling my name. They're yelling it quite loudly, too. Fighting the urge to hit the "add to cart" button means physically holding my hand down right now!! What a sweet shop. Thank you for the introduction. She's a marked favorite now!

  30. Oooohhhh....so difficult to decide. But of her current wares, I think I like the antique regina plate the best. It is just lovely. I may just need to spend my "fun money" on that this month. :) Cheers!

  33. many pretty things, but I would have to say the Regina plate...I have been actually using my china for years now, but there are some pieces that are just too pretty, and that I would be too devastated to lose, so those go on the wall or on a plate stand. This plate would be one of them!

    Good luck with your new shop, Sarah, and Jen, thanks for the great blog, love your style!
