Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!

Maybe it's the recent holiday parties that has me in this frame of mind...but this week's Window Shopping on Etsy is all about cupcakes! Mmmmm!  Let's take a look at a few artisans that have been inspired by cupcakes!!

Routine is for Robots creates lampwork designs and is definitely inspired by cupcakes!  This adorable glass cupcake pendant features lime green 'cake' and white frosting, dotted with tiny rainbow sprinkles and topped with a genuine Swarovski crystal cherry! 

In the artist's own words: "All my jewelry is lampworked by me and is annealed for durability and strength. "

At Crocheted Little Things you will find a vast variety of cupcakes as well as faux food and spa items.  This Crocheted Pincushion Cupcake in White with a Red Cherry in white acrylic yarn helping a busy seamstress to keep her pins and needle in order in one spot. Embellished by a red cherry also in acrylic yarn.

Luisa, the owner, is the busy mom of two wonderful kids who is having too much fun selling her crocheted little things on Etsy and Artfire to really call it a business or a job!  Her work is colorful and wonderful and certainly fits right in with our cupcake theme!

This Cupcakes Four Drawer Trinket Box by Sister Butterfly is perfect for stylishly storing jewelry, or other small treasures.  In the artist's own words: "The entire box and inside drawers were painted a metallic brown. Then I decoupaged various cupcake patterns...The back has chocolate frosted sprinkles! Then, I inked the edges for a "shabby chic" look. Last, I sealed it in triple coats of sealer for extra protection. This box measures: just under 8" tall, by 6" wide, by 4" deep."

Oh, AND they have real cupcakes on Etsy too!  These are Raspberry Lemonade Cupcakes by Sugar Plum's Cupcakery.  In the artist's own words: "You simply will not believe the burst of flavor that pops through your mouth! The sweetness of fresh raspberries in our raspberry filling combined with our very own lemon meringue fill and guessed it...Our very own Raspberry Lemonade Buttercream Icing!!!"
So I hope you have enjoyed this week's Window Shopping on Etsy Feature!  Wishing everyone a wonderful week!
