Purchased on Etsy: January – Reusable Cotton Swiffer Covers from handknitted4you

Set of 3 Swiffer Covers from Hand Knitted 4 You, $10 on Etsy. Click to view listing.

By far, my most active social group on the interwebs is no, not Facebook, no, not Cat Blog Lovers Anonymous, but our very own Etsy Maine Team.  It’s a collection of 600+ Maine artists, crafters and vintage sellers on Etsy.  P.S. if you wanna belong, go here to the forums and sign up!  Anyways, Rowena from handknitted4you has these great, 100% cotton reusable swiffer covers she crochets.  As soon as I saw them I wanted them!  They were a topic of discussion in the forums at one point because everyone wanted to purchase multiples (instead of just having one) so that you can have one on the swiffer, one in the laundry and a clean one waiting in the wings.  She started listing sets of 3 and as soon as I had enough money in my Paypal account they were mine!  I even put in a custom request for three specific covers, and the turnaround was less than two days on these hand-crocheted housewares.  Awesome.

I’m going to try to purchase something from Etsy at least once per month that isn’t a supply.  This is the January installment, and I couldn’t be happier.  They came today (after shipping on Monday!  Whoa that’s an advantage from ordering in-state!) and I can’t wait to clean my floors.  Wait, what?  I can’t wait to clean?  Better go check my temperature.

Pretty Packaging

Care Instructions!

Hey-yeah! I’m a winner.

Secrets Inside Just for Me!

Last week I participated in the giveaway Chrissy-jo from Kindred Images and Creations held on her Facebook fan page.  And guess what?  I’m the winner!  Extra exciting because Chrissy-jo is a member of my favorite Etsy team, the Maine Team (obviously it’s the best).

So Many Goodies

The intoxicatingly herb-y package arrived in the mail yesterday, and with some nice, wintry late-afternoon light I had a chance to photograph all the goodies.  I’ve already used the comfrey healing salve on my aching neck + head (swollen sinuses for both of us this weekend, makes for a headache-y house!) and can’t wait to use the bath goodies.  The salve was so soothing and not overpoweringly scented.  Love at first rub.

Ahh, the goodies again
