'Buttons and Bottles' Etsy shop review and giveaway....

While messing around in my free time, (lol, yeah like I know the meaning of free time!! )
I came across yet another great Etsy shop that I think you will really like.
I love these great handmade cards and crafts.
I'm a sort of a sucker when it comes to holidays...all holidays (no matter how big or small)
It gives me an occasion to not only go shopping :)
...but I also get to make up little gift packages for my kiddos!!

Michelle is the owner of Buttons and Bottles. She has had her Etsy shop since August, 2010.
When I found out that Michelle was originally from my home state of Michigan
and had also lived in Arizona for awhile, like myself...I felt a sort of connection with her.
Michelle now lives in California. I'm sure she's enjoying
much better weather than we are her in Michigan :)
But enough of that...
Here is a picture of all the great items that Michelle sent me from her
Buttons and Bottles Etsy shop.
And I apologize if you feel the need to look at this sideways...
My photo editing program wasn't working with me tonight :(

These gift tags will be the perfect way to decorate the kids' packages this year!!

Surprised Little Witch Tag
Can you believe this handmade pumpkin??

Michelle not only sent me one, but she also sent me a sample of the 'wool fiber' that she uses to make these adorable things. She says, "I take the wool and a felting needle that has very small barbs on it and just shape it as I go until I end up with the item I want." Now...I know nothing about wool and felting needles and all that, but it sure doesn't sound the easiest. And, wow...I love the finished item, so obviously her hard work is well worth it :)

Now, I'd love to keep showing off her cute Halloween items, but I want to be sure that everyone realizes that she has way more to offer.

Buttons and Bottles has so generously offered the lucky winner a gift basket worth $20 of  her items!!
Now wasn't that just the sweetest of her???
