The one with some of my Etsy favourites

Lately I've been having some mixed feelings about Etsy, clearly things have changed. As a shop-owner: changed lay out, decreasing views and sales, and for me the whole community part of the website seems to have disappeared. But also as a shopper: the lay out of the frontpage (which often gave me cool suggestions of things I didn't know I was looking for), but also more and more sellers that clearly sell items that aren't made by them, are not antique, or aren't craft supplies. I come across the same stuff that is also being offered at websites as AliExpress, but also shopowners that claim to sell handmade, but are items that I also sell in my brick and mortar shop, that are made by another person. Well, with that being said, there still are makers that design and/or make their own items. These are some of the things that stood out for me the last couple of weeks. Are you a buyer or seller on Etsy? Any shops I should know about?

The one with the things I liked in march

Sharing some of the things I've seen, did and / or liked in the month of march. These were already posted on Instagram. I really wanted to pick out some 'new' not already shared pictures, but these were already edited, and I am still in winter/lazy/couch potato-mode....
