♥ Monday Etsy Loves ♥ La La Love You! ♥

So, tomorrow it's March
Seriously, wasn't it just Christmas?
I need to get a caffeine drip and work through my To Do list (I actually really love making lists!)
Last week when I went to Hampstead Heath it felt like Spring was upon us, now it's freeeezing!
What's going on?
I was starting to plan day trips and picnics!
Never mind
As a typical Brit, I'll probably start moaning when it gets hot!
Let's get on with this Mondays Etsy picks!
Hope you find something you like!

Little Quasi was adopted from Cool Cat's Rescue Center, a No-Kill adoption center
Now Quasi's owner raises money for the shelter through her Etsy shop!

That's a lot of little kitties helped
I think little Quasi is a cutie!

Start of Spring on Hampstead Heath

Hi there!
Can you believe it's Friday?
I know, I always say it
But the week has flown by!
On Thursday, the weather was beautiful, so we headed to Hampstead Heath
By the time we got there it wasn't as sunny, but still pretty warm for February
It was lovely walking around, planning what we want to do this Spring and Summer
Spring has never really appealed to me much
I'm much more a Summer/Autumn girl
But after the dreary weather we've been having, I'm really loving Spring!

I love Snowdrops!
So pretty and dainty!

Isn't this gorgeous?

See those two little pigeons in the photo below?
They were walking along in front of us for a while and sounded like they were having a bit of a heated debate
I thought they were a couple having a row, Paul thought I was over thinking!

Check out that little guy with his funky hair-do!

Just a little photo update!
I can't wait until Spring!
What's your favorite season?

♥ Monday Etsy Loves ♥ Listing my Loves ♥

Hope your Mondays has been good!
I've been drinking lots of yummy sweet rose tea to keep warm
The weather has changed dramatically
Last week you could feel spring was on it's way and now it's so cold
It's even snowing in places outside London!

I love doing these Etsy posts
It makes me realise how there are so many different, talented people out there
It's really inspiring! And, there is SO much out there I want!
Anyway onto my Etsy picks
There are some really lovely things I've found

1. Rikarika

Sisco would love this!
There are lots of other animals in the shop!

This vintage remixed suitcase is so adorable!
Her shop is full of really cute artwork too!

3. Peanut Butter Dynamite
How amazing is this rug?
Her pillows are adorable too
I seriously need to learn how to crochet!

4. Eye for Finds
I've got a soft spot for anything apple related
I think it's due to the fact my Nana always used to call me her "Apple of my Eye"

5. Nowvenmber
These little notebooks are cute
The colours are my favorite too
