I hate presents. Said no one ever.

‘Sup?  Every year, Christmas suddenly jumps on my head.  Like I wasn’t even expecting it.  Every year, I say hold on, dudette… I’m not ready.  Every year, it happens.

All up in my face.  Every year, I say this is going to be different.

Every year … I am wrong*

*face palm*

If I say every year one more time, I’m going to punch myself in the face.


I pinky swear it… I’m in the holiday spirit. Or I’m dipping into the spirits (homemade baileys).  Same thing.  But different.



‘xcept this year.

This year is going to be different.


We got this, you and I.  How?  Etsy has so much to offer fellers out ‘dare! Why am I suddenly talking like a bohemian redneck?

On second thought, don’t sip too much of that baileys.  #LearnFromTheErrorsOfMyWays



Get ready for 49 billion photos of really cool Etsy-ness !!   I tried to take most of the photos from the treehouse, before I froze my arse off.



Online shopping is d’best …

Do you want to quit watching the holiday clock?  Do you want to crush your holiday shopping?   Do it online and avoid punching out someone in a shopping mall parking lot.   Avoid tasering the drivers who steal your mall parking spot.  Pfffft.

Yes, you can sometimes find some of the most trashed up things this side of Christmas when you do shopping.  Uhhhhgaleeee.  Not here.

I’m only sharing the best of the bestest  of the very best of Etsy.  Here.  Now.  Got that?

PS. if you have some fave Etsy sellers, spill it in the comment section below. I love discovering new ones!!


You and I are going to have the best invisible internet friend holiday party ever.


We can shop from deep within our couches.  In our pajamaz.  For insanely cool stuff.

Linen love. Legit.  LOVE. 


For years, I had never ever in the history of ever, tried linen duvet covers, sheets, towels or curtains.

Why not?!!! I was stupid.  Stoopid.

Now, I’m in an upward spiral obsession with them.  I quickly learned that I would need to slowly bribe Michael into feeling the same way.  It was awesome. NOT.   It took some coaxing and now he freaking lovvvvves it too.  Don’t tell him I told you.  I’ll be busted and hiding under the linen duvet cover.  What? Never mind.  Now he’ll know where I’m hiding.

Keeping it Real…


I’ve had a lifetime crush on linen. Like seriously, it’s probably my longest crush ever.   I estimate it at 20 years strong.  Funny, since I am only 21.  About three words in there are true.


PS. My biggest crush has been with Not Perfect Linen on Etsy. I have been using her linens for a couple of years now and love love love love.  Did I mention love?


Dear Linen, I love you.  The End.

Can I just say that I hate removing makeup?!!  I know it’s bad for my skin and I’ll probably go blind but WHATEVER. By not removing it, I don’t have to put my makeup on every day either, so it’s a win-win.

    Merry early Christmas Lynne!

  7. valerie sobus says:

    i’m not a big jewelry person but one of my very favorite things about etsy is the vast amount of unique wedding jewelry you can shop for on there! i knew that’s where i wanted my engagement ring and wedding band from from the very start. this is the one i ended up with and couldn’t have been happier (both with the ring — still holding up AWESOME — and the amazing customer service you get with etsy sellers)

  8. Sandi Knight says:

    Energy Mud Mugs – oh my! Who on your list wouldn’t like those? With a side of coffee and Baileys, maybe a sugar cookie or three! The perfect gift!

    Love all of your picks. Can you please do my husband’s Christmas shopping this year? 😉

  13. Susan says:

    I got referred here by mud and stone (a local Etsy seller thAt sells amazing ceramics). I am trying to buy more local and handmade/small shop goods this year and Etsy makes it so much easier for a new mom who can’t make it out to the craft sales and shops. Been shopping Etsy for years and love it!!!

    • Hi Susan!

      Isn’t Mud and Stone, fab?!!! I fell in love with them on Etsy and especially lurve that they are Canadian. When I bought their mugs, I was so impressed!

      The white mug with the gold handle has become my all time fave in the history of ever.

      So cool to hear that you have been an Etsy shopper for years. Isn’t it just fab to buy locally and not step into a shopping mall? Gah.

      Big love and happy holidays,

  14. Sarah B says:

    I am trying to buy local or handmade for my Christmas gifts. This would help spread the handmade cheer, both far and near.

  15. claudia says:

    Wow! This is a great list. A lot of classic items but with a fun twist. This year, I’m looking so ecofriendly gifts…etsy is a great place for that. Have a lovely week 🙂

    • Hi Shane!

      It’s sooooooooo cool that your wedding ring is from Etsy! I was having a look at the rings last week. Erhhhmergerd, love!

      Do you have a fave seller for rings?

      Happy shopping!

  17. Meg S says:

    I have found SO many Etsy things I want to give people for Christmas. SO MANY. It’s not even funny.

  18. Piroska says:

    I absolutely love linen–tea towels, curtains, throws, whatever. Linen lasts forever, and is simple, classic, beautiful.
    Thanks for the chance!

    • Hi Piroska!

      I have a friend who lives just down the country road with the same name of Piroska! Fab name and fab taste in linens. I think you would both love each others style. LOL.

  19. Tara Smith says:

    Give me those tea towels right now!!!! They are adorable. I will dry my gold handled mugs with them when I am done drinking my coffee. See what I did there? I WANT THOSE TOO. who’s lap to have to sit on to ask for them?

  20. Shirley says:

    Lynne, check out the beautiful glass jewellery at lunacyglass! I’m thinking you and the girls will love it!

  22. Kathryn says:

    Gahhh!!! First – Woodlot makes the best.candles.EVAR. I asked Santa for another one this year. I may just send him the link to this post so he can shop in his undies. And so I don’t get a call from the police station after he’s punched someone in the face while trying to find parking at the mall. Second – that wall hanging – LOVE. You must check out Saige & Skye’s shop on Etsy. She makes stunning wall hangings and she taught me some pretty dope weaving and macrame skills (which means she deserves an award). And finally – the treehouse. I swoon. It’s the inspiration for my own little project – a cottage at my new hobby farm. Thanks SO much for such a wonderfully hilarious and motivational blog.

    • Hi Kathryn!

      I checked out your little cottage! So beautiful ! It will be amazing when you are done!

      Follow along on my blog, and you’ll see a ton of new cabin ideas as I share some epic ideas for cabin decor and treehouse shenanigans. (I’m working on a cabin too!)

      I have a pinterest board that you may love!! Here you go>>> CABIN PORN 🙂

      AirBnB is also super easy to use. We love it for renting our treehouse/airstream/cabin.

      I just love that Saige and Skye is Canadian too! For the win!

  36. Corinne Smith says:

    That gold-handled cup! And that driftwood candle!! Also, this font… how did you do that? I’ve never shopped on Etsy but clearly I need to try. Especially since it means not having to go to a noisy mall with no parking and way too much crap. Thanks for this one, oh wise one.

    • Hi Corinne!

      Seriously, Etsy shopping will change your life. haha. I have not hit a shopping mall yet for this seasons holiday shopping and I have no intention of it. I am sparing the lives of people in the parking lots. I have a zapper and I will use it. Joking. Not joking. haha.

      Love, the wise obi wan kenobi. Wait. Maybe not so wise. I had to spell check that. haha.

  37. Lori says:

    I have a love/hate relationship with Etsy. Love because I can find a gazillion things there on any given day that I feel I absolutely must have for my life to be complete and hate because A I don’t have the millions I would need to buy it all 😉 and B because I can spend HOURS on there and all of a sudden it’s dark outside. It’s almost like I’ve blacked out but what a way to go!!

    • hahahaahaaa Lori, we may be Etsy twinsies.

      Blacked out & dark outside. haha! I just laughed out loud.

      Not that I would do that. Okay. I totally did that.

      That’s what happens when you shop in your slippers 🙂 xx

      Good luck with the Etsy contest!

      Lynne xx

  38. Alla says:

    Lynne, thank you!
    Now I’m your newest fan.Very good!!!

  39. Darcy koevoets says:

    Never ordered from etsy, but you make it sound so wonderful that I’m going to have to try it out, thanks

    • Ohhhh look out Darcy, it is super dangerously fun. No really. I started and finished my shopping in Etsy this year… and then really really really finished it with the cyber sales.

      Not one shopping mall. Woooohooooo!!

      Try it. It’s so good (and peaceful LOL)

    I like driftwood and Baileys!!!

  41. Hannah says:

    Right now for Christmasy stuff, I’m loving redstuga and her darling Dala horse prints. Other than that, most of my favorites tend toward the handmade wool/organic cotton clothes and indie pattern designers. So many cute patterns for slippers right now!

    • Ohhhh the horse prints/magnets are adorbs Hannah! Slipper patterns, did I hear slipper patterns? I must go check those out! So cool !!

      Best of luck with the Etsy contest and happy shopping!

  42. Liberty says:

    I just lurve for custom made sewn goodies. is my fave for smelly (in a good way) stuff. has some delish hand stuff (OK, not delish to eat but lovely to smell) which will leave even the most hardened crafting hands tolerable to touch. Last, but not least, – my source for all my paper-less paper towels, cos we’re all environmentally aware ‘n’ stuff around here! Well, paper-less towel wise, anyhow.

  43. Donna Marchlewski says:

    Good morning Lynne,
    If I were to win that swell $100 etsy card, I would buy a HUGE “HELLO” wall decal! My front door opens into a small foyer with a wall directly ahead. I would put the HELLO on that wall so when you come in BAMM! you can see how we are obviously very social and friendly. Yep, I think that should work just fine. 🙂

  44. Diana says:

    Oh my gosh. I love coming to your site. It’s so Pretty!

  45. Mary Melber says:

    I buy most of my soap and shampoo on Etsy. You just can’t beat the fragrances. My daughter loves it too. I have bought gift certificates for her on her birthday and Christmas, always such a perfect gift! Thank you for the great giveaway!

    • Do you have a fave seller for soap and shampoo on Etsy, Mary? I’m looking for some great shampoos for the treehouse and airstream that we rent out to guests in the summer.

      Best of luck for the giveaway!!
      Lynne xx

  46. Lisa says:

    I adore etsy because I know what I’m buying is made by a person who has put a lot of love into what they do! Right now I’m somewhat obsessed with crochet patterns. I haven’t actually completed anything yet…but it *might* help if I actually learn to crochet first. Happy holidays!

    • So well said Lisa! Why didn’t I think of that? haha.

      I find that by the time I buy something, I have sent a wee note or two back and forth with the etsy seller and really start to get to know them.

      It is FABULOUS. It feels so nice to buy from small boutique shops, people who create from their homes and people who put love and care into their work.

      Lynne xx

      PS. Happy shopping!

  47. Jackie russo says:

    Love…you inspired me last year to learn to knit. I am not good but I love it. I have been eyeing this bay leaf garland on etsy, of which I can use the bay leaves from while cooking some amazing indian food 🙂

  48. Donna Switzer says:

    Thanks Lynne for all the neat ideas and the morning smile! You never fail to make me giggle when I read your blogs! Love your spunk!!!

  49. Debbie Bashford says:

    this would be awesome I love Etsy!!

    • You too Debbie? I may be a tinge addicted. LOL. I met some great gals last year that rocked my Etsy socks. So much talent. So kind. It just FEELS GOOD making purchases like that. Right? Right. 🙂
