    Lovely finds Holly! Apak was always one of my Etsy favorites! And I LOVE their new prints, their paintings are so innocent and their attention to sweet details always amazes me!

    I didn’t know about “Sweet Anthrem” at all! Thank you for sharing! I adore her photography and packaging xo

    Eclu’s clutches are adorable & very affordable. I feel so liberated when carrying a clutch. It’s nice to leave the big bag at home every now and then…

    Wonderful grouping! I love the folksy artwork of Melanie Linder from Spread the Love!! I met her and a few of the other Ztowners this past September at a local art shop/gallery opening. Very nice, energetic & talented artists.

    Such great ones today, Holly! I adore them each for many reasons.

    Can I tell you a little something though? I really miss your words about each one. I know that maybe it seemed like we all skipped through what you wrote just to get to the shops, but I thought it was really nice to just to hear a little bit about why you liked each pick, and what drew you to them. Maybe you don’t have to write as much as before, but just a tiny something?
