Today I’m coming to you with a different kind of post, in the spirit of end of the year type lists. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite things; etsy shops, inspirations and blogs. Sadly, I can’t include everything I love, this post would be far too long! So without further ado, here’s a few things I think you should check out...


1. Ice Milk Aprons by Ashley Leckey
These aprons are absolutely beautiful, simple and understated. There’s something so charming about them, with names like “rolling pin oatmeal” and “pecan orchard pleasantries”.


2. Handmade Pottery by Whitney Smith
When I found Whitney Smith’s beautiful etsy shop the other day I had to tweet about it immediately. Her pottery is stunning. She makes everything from cute little cupcake stands to big lotus nesting bowls. I want one of everything!


3. Simply Photo by Jennifer Causey
I am endlessly inspired by Jennifer Causey. Her breakfast blog, Simply Breakfast is one of my favorites. You can purchase her beautiful photos at her etsy shop here.


4. Herriot Grace
Handmade wooden spoons, bowls & other beautiful things. I was smitten with this shop as soon as I found it. You can also check out Nikole’s beautiful blog here.

Food Loves Writing: Shanna’s writing will make you laugh and make you cry, she’s incredibly talented. She’s also a genuinely nice person, and I’m glad to have met her.

Sprouted Kitchen: There’s so much I could say about Sara’s blog! The photos are absolutely beautiful, the writing is so down to earth and all her recipes look terrific, everything I’ve tried has come out perfectly!

Seven Spoons: Tara is one of my favorite writers, she transports you with her beautiful words, plus, she’s an amazing photographer. Her photos are simple and rustic, I love everything about them.

Mae Bird: Amanda is a very talented photographer. She recently got back from an inspiring trip to Bangladesh, where she met fair trade artisans, it was great to read about her travels and the people she met. Her blog is definitely one to check out.

This list doesn’t even put a dent in my list of favorite things. There are so many other inspiring blogs & etsy shops that I love. I hope to do more posts like this in the future!

Tell me, what do you find inspiring? I love finding new things!
