Spotlight on Etsy items that cost $16... just because it's my lucky number!

I LOVE the number 16. It's just so pretty, so divisible, so loopy. I was born on March 16, which has a lot to do with it. One time when I played Mega Millions and picked 16 as the Mega Ball, I won $8. So technically I won the lottery :-p Anyways, this is my special blog spotlight on my love affair with handmade items and the loveliest number in the world- 16!

This item caught my eyes first off. The colors in it are absolutely amazing! I love peacock accessories!

You astrological-minded readers know that since I was born on March 16 that I am a Pisces- well what Pisces could resist this scarf? It's beautiful and reminds me of calm waters. Plus it's a steal at $16- it was hand painted! Plus I am a bit biased because I just released a perfume oil called Lagoon....

Now if there is one thing that I love besides making soap and perfumes, it is makeup! I am an avid collector- especially of MAC MSFs! I also love Urban Decay and the up and coming Illamasqua brands. This bag is pretty big and looks very sturdy- judging by the size I could fit my whole MAC lipstick collection in there- and let me assure you, I have more than 16!

Couldn't you just see Marilyn Monroe wearing these? These earrings are beautiful and right up my alley. I love the color pink and I love to be noticed- these would definitely give their wearer a ton of attention. I love that they are mounted on gold as well- it just adds to that old Hollywood glam feel.

How posh is this? I adore the pattern and love it even more since it really is eco-friendly. Not like those stinky plasticky eye masks you can get out of the bargain bin at Wally World- this is the real deal! This would be perfect for a jetsetter or a partier- I'm not judging! :)

Okay so what if I am 25 years old and I was home on a Friday night watching Twilight? I can't get enough! This set sounds amazing and just makes me even more anxious for New Moon to come out so we can see the whole Bella's birthday scene!

I hearted this seller and this item long ago so I think it's only fate that made it come up in my lucky 16 search! I am so intrigued by this cream. I actually know quite a lot about skin care and I can say that judging by the ingredients, this cream will pack a great moisturizing punch. My skin drinks up ylang ylang so I am sure this would be love at first application for me!

These cards are absolutely haunting, so yes, they are right up my alley! I think it's so cool that the seller took these photographs and was able to make them look so stunning as cards- a definite visual treat!

Panties!!!!! I mean come on, everyone needs underwear (in my opinion) so why not wear super cute ones! I love the little doggy pink ones. These would also make a great gift for your girlfriends!

If you have an Etsy shop, it's gotta look good to be successful. I love Camille's work, especially this piece which is ironically on sale for- you guessed it- $16!

I love this. I have been on a bird kick lately and the girl in the painting even looks like me, well except I have a lower half. I think that everyone could find something in this artist's shop that appeals to him. I know I have found many!

So that wraps up my tribute to my favorite number, 16! I had a busy day today, but I was able to list my Blue Raspberry Soap on Etsy.

Don't forget to check out my pal Sherryl's blog for her shop Skylar's Candy Clips, she will be featuring my shop on her blog tomorrow and I am doing a HUGE giveaway for it!

Until next time,

  1. Thanks so much for mentioning our Moon Cream! And you're right - it's super moisturizing. I went about a week without using any (long crazy week!) and when I finally used it again last night my skin thanked me. It's nice and soft, smooth, and supple again.
