2nd, Eco Cup Cozy by laurabucci:This piece is awesome because it's eco-friendly, adorable (Vespa's are so cute!), and practical (it functions just like a normal cardboard cup cozy--insulating, protective, fits standard cup sizes).
Eco-Friendly Reusable Snack/Sandwich Bag by TylerRaesBoutiqueMy family goes through a million plastic baggies a week. This reusable bag is a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags. It would be great for plane-ride snacks and on-the-go sandwiches!
Lingerie Laundry Tote by SunlitOrchard:
I Spy Travel Toy by aebaby:
When I came across this product I immediately became nostalgic. Since my family is large, we'd take road trip vacations. I remember playing I spy and other games in the car with my sisters. This toy reminded me of those fun, and crazy, times!

We make a lot of very different pieces!
I’ve decided to launch a new line entitled “Dichotomy.” I’m not sure if you could call it a line, maybe a “branch” of SuaVoce is more appropriate. But either way, I intend to possibly open a new Etsy store or transform SuaVoce’s current store with “Dichotomy” as my focus.
Well, strictly speaking it’s, “division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups.” In regards to SuaVoce though, it’s a unifying yet “dichotomous” theme to our store.
Keep reading in the days and weeks to come as I update you on my progress with “Dichotomy!”

Wedding/Plain Shoes, $30.00
This outfit isn't quite a wedding dress, but the shoes match perfectly regardless! They were just what I was looking for: Simple, inexpensive, elegant. DeBonisOrquera has an amazing selection of handmade designer shoes. If you don't like the white, the DeBonisOrquera.etsy.com has a number of gorgeous colored and patterned shoes. (DeBonisOrquera: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=27762855)
That's it for my "Ideal Outfit" this week! I showcased a number of inexpensive, feminine pieces from talented Etsy artists. Keep an eye out for next week's outfit!

Step one, we needed beads. We explored Etsy and found these great beads from seller PenGwynneBeads:
For my piece, I also found beautiful glass pearls from seller allearringsandsuppli
Step two, put them together. Sarah decided to combine the red resin flowers with black Czech glass beads we already owned, all connected by sterling silver to form beautiful earrings.
She used more resin flowers along with vintage chain to make a bracelet.
I used the large pink resin flowers along with the soft teal glass pearls to make the necklace I was envisioning--bold, bright, and fun!
Step three, wear them. We wore our creations to yesterday's wedding, which was on all accounts a success. The dancing was a blast and the view of the Chicago skyline was phenominal!

Inspired by Hogwart’s most infamous house, Slytherin, these earrings are made from sparkling green Czech glass beads and silver beads in a unique “chandelier” design. Tiny silver stars are a “magical” touch to these Harry Potter-inspired earrings. So whether you love Draco Malfoy or have an ambitious and cunning (and maybe shady) character, or if you want to show support for your favorite Hogwart’s house, these earrings are a darling addition to a jewelry collection!
