Happy Monday, friends! We’re taking a quick break today from wedding recaps; I’ll be posting some of our actual wedding photos tomorrow, but for now, let’s talk Etsy! Remember a few weeks ago when my friend Emily did a little guest appearance about her adorable cow finger puppets? Well, brace yourselves, because she has opened an Etsy shop, and it’s a finger puppet paradise.
Emily’s shop is called Square Gardens, and it’s a veritable extravaganza of cute. And beyond the cute, Emily has created puppet collections that can be used to teach, to tell stories, and to encourage creativity in little ones and big ones alike. Each finger puppet is hand cut and sewn by sweet Emily herself, and made from 100% recycled felt (fun and eco-friendly!). Right now, the shop has tons of fun fall puppets, but my personal fave is the “Five Little Monkeys” set, complete with 5 monkeys, Mama, the Doctor, and the bed for the monkeys to jump on!
Go take a peek to see more of Emily’s puppets at Square Gardens, and go back often — rumor has it that there will be more holiday puppets soon, and a full family set where you can specify characteristics to match your own family! I’m thinking that my niece might end up with some of these in her stocking this Christmas (and I might get a couple for myself, ya know, just for funsies). Good going, Em! xoxo
