I'm Just Wild About Etsy!!

Hello dear friends.  Is it Thursday already?  This week just whipped by.  We are one week closer to Spring.  Can't come soon enough for me. 

I'm Just Wild About Etsy is a new series that I am starting this year.   I can get lost for hours on Etsy looking at all the unique items that it carries.  

As long as you know what size phone the person has, a phone case is a cute, inexpensive gift for someone. Here are a few of the most unusual.  

Jane Austen books for the reader in your life.


For the gardener.

Design Mavens NYC

For the Nancy Drew buff. 


Remember these?
This would be a great gift for someone who is actually old enough to know what a cassette is!


For any Real Housewives in your life.

Don't give this one to anyone on a diet.
I would salivate every time I would hear the ringer.


The Mister would probably get me this one.


For the artist that is special to you.

The Curious Case

For the crazy one in your life.

For the med student in your life.

This lucky recipient could test the eye sight of all their friends!  What an ice breaker!

Enjoy your Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Feel free to contact me through comments and email. I love to hear from my readers!


  1. I love Etsy and these phone cases are fabulous! I think I would get more than one and change them out!

    Have a great day!

  2. Agree, so many wonderful things on Etsy! What fun phone cases.

  3. What fun these are! I love all the ideas.....I can think of friends and family who would love to get these Etsy is a great resource. Let me me guess....... its snowing AGAIN over there too? I have had quite enough....take care and stay warm.

  4. Isn't Etsy SO much fun?! I love the phone cases - I must go browse around for one for my IPhone 6 - I had a pretty monogrammed one for my old phone but have a very utilitarian one for this phone. Hope you are staying warm, my dear! xoxo

  5. HAHAHAHAHA love the one about Hell being full~~ My family would so love to see my phone covered with that one!!
    My daughter in laws wanted my "grandma name" to be CRAZY!!! My sons nixed it because they didn't want to introduce me to their class on show and tell day as ....."This is my crazy"!!! hahahaha....I thought it would have been so fun!

  6. Etsy is one place that gets me into trouble, but good trouble.......

  7. I absolutely love Etsy! I have found some of the most unique items there. My favorite cell phone case on Etsy right now is the one with the red background and black-and-white zebras (styled after Scalamandre's wallpaper in Margot's room in Wes Anderson's The Royal Tannenbaums!

    1. I know that wallpaper well. It was in a showhouse that I went to and I fell in love. I will have to go back and check that one out. Have a good weekend!

    2. I love them all! Perhaps my iPhone needs its own wardrobe! Have a great weekend!

  8. Well, I sure do love the Chanel...not too much bling, is it? Fun post Katie! Have a lovely weekend!

  9. Katie what a great selection! Amazed that you found these. Love the books, the Chanel , and the artists palette cases! Others would make great gifts!!

    The Arts by Karena New Feature

  10. Such fun ideas here Katie! These are all so fun and make great gift ideas. Happy Friday!

  11. These are fabulous! And I love the idea for your new Etsy feature! I get overwhelmed when I browse the site so I will let you curate all the best things then just put them in my cart!

  12. Oh, I love the one for Nancy Drew. I used to stay up way to late because I just couldn't put those books down. The rich girl in my class had her own Nancy Drew library and brought the books to school in a suitcase and let girls check them out. She didn't like me, and so, I didn't get to check them out. I had to go to the public library. (I still don't like that girl!!!)

  13. I do love Etsy! It's a great place for crafters who want to start small. It's also great because you're able to browse different kinds of products in it. A lot of Etsy shop owners have differently-styled products, and customers really love having a diverse set of products to choose from. At any rate, thank you so much for sharing those beautiful iPhone cases, Katie! I hope to see more soon! More power to you! :)
