Etsy Betsy Shopper

I'm way late to the game on this one, but I have a newfound love and it's name is Etsy. A craftier verson of ebay, Etsy is a site that sells homemade goods from thousands of different sellers. I haven't actually ever purchased anything...until today.

In preparation for my trip to Paris in April, I've been looking for a stylish and lightweight messenger bag. I found hundreds on various sites, but was turned-off for several reasons. Either the bags were made of Italian leather and cost hundreds of dollars, or they were outfitted with cheap iron-on graphics, a la high school, or they were built instead to tote laptops. Alas, Etsy came through for me, and I bought this chic, handmade canvas messenger bag. It's exactly what I was looking for. I also bought a birthday present for my sister-in-law. Done and done.

My Bible study kicked off our new year tonight, and we met at my house for some grub cooked by yours truly. I made cornflake chicken, roasted roma tomatoes, creamed cauliflower (a.k.a. fauxtatoes), and Siebe manned the sauteed green beans. For dessert, I made a spiced pear pie, and it was delicious. I so enjoyed all of the food prep and cooking, and still plan to make it my full time job someday. Someday.
