There is a huge snowfall today in Montreal. This means I am better staying in the comfort of my home. After two days at the office, it feels great to write with the company of the cats. It explains why my Etsy finds share a cuddly vibe.
+ Romping Through the Forest is an adorable glass magnet gift set designed by Lemon Tree Studio. If you have a special request, she welcome custom orders. $4.95 USD
+ Behind One Red Robin is Jhoanna Monte Aranez, a mom with 2 little girls. She designs and hand makes adorable soft toys and dolls. The unique Winston the Koa-chi is made from faux fur, wool flannel, wool felt, and designer cotton prints. $58 USD from jmaranez’s etsy shop.
+ I never watched Mad Men until yesterday. So far, I watched the first two episodes. Set in the 60s, it is interesting to see what the men and women relationships used to be. The second reason why I selected this note card is that it is hard to find great cards for men. Midcentury 15 drawn by Jim Ward Morris qualifies. $6 for 6 cards with envelops
+ If you crave for a hot brownies with a scoop of ice cream, get this set of Hot Cocoa Pots; they come with the recipe. The small ramekins by pottery artist Keith Phillips have beautiful lines. They satisfy my top priority for tableware: they are dishwasher safe. $39 USD for a set of 4

My favorite find on Etsy which also have the wintery feeling, is the two Sparrow mugs I purchased from Justmare
I love them and they are also perfect for hot chocolate on a stormy day like today! :-)))

There are adorable. But they do not qualify since they are not dishwasher safe. You see, I want to maximize the return on my Miele.
