Black History Month Celebrating on Etsy

I’m a huge fan of Etsy, I’m still working on stuff for my own shop, but it’s such hard work. That’s why I totally appreciate all the work that any Etsy Seller has put into their shops and I spend many happy hours browsing and buying when I can. October is Black History Month so I’m going to feature a few Black sellers to celebrate.

I’m also an Etsy Affiliate so my links may earn me some money but will cost you no more. Thanks for your support x

Jewellery

I couldn’t resist popping back to Love Light and Harmony for another bracelet and was thrilled to find this gorgeous lapis lazuli and rose quartz one with a delightful angel wing charm. I’m wearing it all the time.

For the Cat

I decided to treat Ash to a new collar and figured he’d look pretty cool in this camo one from Muttley and Martha

I’ll put it on him if I can keep him still long enough!!

For the Home

I say, for the home, but it’s for me really. I’m really get back into crystals again. I have a collection dating back nearly 30 years. When Boo showed an interest in crystals recently, she was astonished to see how many I had stashed away. What I really want is a lovely bowl to display some in on my coffee table, but I’ve not found the right one yet. But while I was looking I came across is gorgeous blue agate tea light holder from Empowered Crystals.

Crochet Animal Crossing

My girls love Animal Crossing and I was delighted to find this adorable pattern for Celeste from Kittens and Mittens.

Of course, after downloading the pattern I also had to buy the wool from Handmade By Mary Port.

I promise to let you know how I get one with making this.
