New Shops for September

On Friday I was feeling a little decadent and stayed up until gone midnight, gambling on the hope that Merlin would let me sleep in til about 8.  But, my little boy had other plans...  At 5.30am he started screaming as only a toddler can.  Being a slightly lazy mummy, I fetched him from his cot and brought him into our bed, which stopped the screaming (yey!) but instead of going back to sleep he sat up and started babbling away.  He kept saying "tower" and "big tower".  By 6.30am he decided we obviously weren't going to give him what he wanted so he was going to escape from the bed and play without us.  As a result, I was up at 6.30am and I had company walking the dog on Saturday morning.  Being out that early we got to see the sunrise, which was so nice my son clapped and said "pretty".  Bless.  But he was right, so we headed home and got the camera.  I was too late to photograph the lovely golden light we saw first time around but I'm pretty happy with the pictures I got.  And once we got home my little boy spent the rest of the morning building towers in his bedroom, so everyone was happy in the end.

It's that time of the month again (already!) when we look at some of the new shops on Etsy.  It's a nice diverse selection this month.  Enjoy!
