Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Well hello there friends! How are you today? Having a good February so far? Today was busy for me, but a good busy so I'm not complaining. It feels good to be back home with my cozy laptop to sit here before you and share some Etsy finds for the week. I've been thinking about this while out and about today... who can I feature this week? And these five shops came to mind. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
