All I want for Christmas

Silver dipped pinecone - necklace, by junedesigns

Surfing through the pages of Etsy every day is like visiting thousands of lovely boutiques without the gas money and parking hassles. As I've been browsing the listings in search of goodies to share with you all, I have been able to bookmark some of my very favorite items - and it's never too early to start a wish list for Christmas!

I have coveted silver/gold dipped pinecone necklaces for about 5 or 6 years now, but have never found one that was large enough in scale, yet dainty enough to not be ridiculous. The one listed above by junedesigns is PERFECT in every way. Elegant in simplicity, it is just gorgeous!

Another thing I absolutely love is the scent and color of pink grapefruit. I found these beauties while searching around on Etsy, and have cheerfully added them to my Christmas list:

AIMEE - Earrings, by ClairePearse

As a fan of 19th century classic novels, I am particularly drawn to anything having to do with Jane Austen. Here are a couple items that I just SWOONED over:

Jane Austen shadow box bracelet, by poetsummer

Jane Austen Book Handbag, by spoonfulofchocolate

I have been searching for a long time for a ring that has both turquoise and aquamarine - turquoise for my birthstone and aquamarine for Jack's birthstone. It would be awesome to find one that also has opal (Mark's birthstone), but so far no luck. I found this lovely ring in LvoffStudio's shop:

Turquoise, Aqua, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Sterling Silver Ring, by LvoffStudio

But most of all, I want a Kindle. SO BAD. Imagine being able to download books in seconds and carry up to 1500 titles at once! It would be like dying and going to heaven. (I know, I know, this is not an Etsy item, but it's at the top of my wish list for Christmas, so there.)

I love that Jane Austen bag!

What a switcheroo, though - turn your books into bags and read the stories electronically.

Great list! I should start my list soon, (i am starting it with Kindle too!) I hope you'll get all you wished for this Christmas!
