Best of Etsy Gifts

I got a little carried away with Etsy today. So much cool stuff. So many talented craftsmen and women on there. Gotta love Etsy! I like that you can find unique and interesting gifts you may not be able to find in the bigger department stores on Etsy, and there is so much to choose from!

I fell in love with the the wire light up angel wings door hanger. Plus all of the fun throw pillows. There were also so many fun mugs to choose from. And wall hangings! Don’t even get me started on the jewelry… A unicorn charm necklace? Yes, please! How fun and whimsical is that? Light up mason jars with hydrangeas on top ~ love it! All these crafty creative people out there making cool stuff so I don’t have to. Works for me. I always think I’m going to be crafty and make my own stuff, but let’s get real here. I’m not going to get around to it. Like ever. So don’t count on handmade gifts from me.

Bokehlicious Bokehs!

I do love me a good bokehlicious bokeh! I’m surprised I waited until so close to Christmas to decide I really needed to get some wonderful bokeh pictures, capturing all the holiday lights before they are gone. So off I went on a walk around the neighborhood. I had to play with my camera a bit to figure out what size I wanted my bokehs. Too big and the outline of your subject becomes a blur, too small and it just looks like you couldn’t commit to taking a totally sharp¬†photo or just going for the bokehlicious bokehs.

You can laugh at the word bokehlicious all you want. It’s actually a hashtag on Instagram. To see more of my photos, follow me on Instagram!

This has been a tough year for me, so I thought I’d at least try and end it on a fun and whimsical note. To me, bokeh’s are a lot of fun, so I hope you like them, too. And if you’ve had a bad year like me, chin up, buttercup! There’s a new year just around the corner. Let’s make it a good one! Time to blur out the bad things from this year and turn them into beautiful bokehs!

And of course, there’s always the wonderful bokehs of the Christmas tree lights indoors as well. I didn’t get motivated to take those until Christmas day. Last year I was trying to do them as soon as we had the tree up!

 

Oh Christmas tree!
