Etsy Thursday


‘Tis the season for holiday baking! For this week’s edition of Etsy Thursday, we decided to round up a few of our favorite baking-related items found on Etsy:

Even Donna Reed herself would have to approve of this festive Vintage Poinsettia Pleated Apron from CoffeeKlatch Vintage Linens.  Straight from the 1950’s, CoffeeKlatch has a very good selection of vintage linens. Including a few seasonal options to bring that vintage charm to your holiday baking rituals. Just browsing through all of them will take you right back to the days of Lucy Ricardo, Donna Stone and June Cleaver. If you rather have a vintage apron to use year around, no problem. Etsy has 4,983 (and counting) search results for “vintage apron”. Needless to say, you have a wide selection to choose from!

Cookie Exchange Parties are so much fun! I’ve always wanted to host one but have never gotten around to doing it. Maybe next year when we aren’t in the midst of unpacking. Fingers crossed. With this kit from Did Someone Say Party?, you will have everything you need in order to host a memorable Cookie Exchange Party (just add cookies!). The kit comes with handmade vintage-style invitations with custom lined envelopes, table tent cards, gift tag favors in custom made pillow boxes, recipe cards, adorable bags for your cookies and even bags for your guest to take home their delicious loot. With all of that preparation done for you, all you have to do is bake the cookies!

Sometimes the old way of doing things is the best way. Kind of like this nifty Appalachian Broom Style Cake Tester. This handmade tool is not only unique but really handy too. Just break off a straw and insert it into the center of your baked dish. If the straw comes out clean, ta da! It’s done. This would be a great stocking stuffer!

Next week, we’re going to showcase some unique gifts for HIM found on Etsy.

    I love that apron. It actually reminds me of a paper baking cup.
