I value cottage industries. I love the idea of shopping local and supporting small businesses particularly ones that are right out of someone's home. 

A few months back I bought some lovely potholders from a local business which also has an etsy shop! This are lovely and functional I have several sets. They are well made items which are a must for any kitchen, and would make lovely gifts for Christmas! Toni is wonderful to work with and did a great job at finding pig fabric ( I have this thing for piggies)! My only wish in regards to the holders was a hook for them to hang on and she is more than willing to add those for a wee bit extra!

If you don't have any of these lovelies in your kitchen you are missing out!
