Still looking for the perfect gift for a family member or friend? In addition to some of my favorite things in the Bella Eats Store powered by Amazon, I wanted to share some of my favorite hand-crafted and vintage finds on Etsy. If you haven't shopped on Etsy before, beware. This little site is incredibly addicting. Buying handmade and vintage pieces from individual artists is very, very satisfying.
Aprons from Joy the Baker
How completely adorable are these aprons?!? Just about as cute as Joy herself. Who wouldn't want a little bit of Joy, and her mom, in their kitchen?
$27.00. Joy the Baker on Etsy
Tea Towels from Skinny LaMinx
I've coveted tea towels from Skinny laMinx for what seems like years. Her original drawings, screen printed in bold colors on hopsack, would brighten any kitchen.
$12.00.Skinny laMinx on Etsy
Table Linens fromElizabeth Bentz
I love these abstract illustrations screen printed on 100% linen. I think the "collander" design is my favorite.
prices range from $18.00 - $68.00.Elizabeth Bentz on Etsy
I have an unhealthy obsession with all things felt, and these coasters are no exception. They come in a slew of fun colors, in round and square shapes.

Pottery from Whitney Smith
I love these simple cake and cupcake stands with a touch of whimsey, and the lotus bowls...*swoon*.
lotus bowls $325.00, cupcake stand $38.00. Whitney Smith Pottery on Etsy
Custom Napkin Rings fromRae Dunn
When I think of napkin rings, I think of fancy, fussy parties. This more casual, personal option is much more suited to our home.
set of 2 $24.00, set of 8 $96.00. Rae Dunn on Etsy
Letterpress Recipe Cards from Dingbat Press
I like to think that even though we live in a digital age of electronic recipe files and iPhone apps for cooks, that I would still sit down and write out my favorite recipes on cards for a friend. I think that these adorable letterpress designs would help to motivate me.
set of 10 for $15.00. Dingbat Press on Etsy
There are so many fantastic vintage pieces to be found on Etsy. I've included some images and links to my favorites available right now, but chances are they will all be gone soon and replaced by other great finds.
