Make Pie Not War: My Favorite Etsy Shop

I recently just discovered Etsy. I can't believe I didn't know about it for so long. Or, actually, I'd heard about it, I'd browsed it, but I didn't actually buy anything until fairly recently.

I forget how I stumbled across the Etsy shop Make Pie Not War... but I am so glad I did! I think her designs are just absolutely gorgeous! I seriously want so many of them, its hard not to buy everything.

Little Pillows of Goodness, $68
A Little Gaudy and a Little Dainty, $52
All Things Fabulous from Old, $43
Black Lotus Baubles, $29 *I have these in turquoise
Sweet Crystal Heaven, $60
Athena is Missing a Bangle, $54
Sparrow on my Wrist, $29

These are just a few of her many gorgeous designs! I'm hesitant to share because I don't want to miss out on things I want... but I believe in sharing pretty things! (And how cute are the names she comes up with for her pretty pieces?)

Check out Make Pie Not War here.

What are your favorite Etsy shops? (If you are brave enough to share!)



  1. Funny you ask that...I was just browsing Etsy (as usual).
    I have been in love with Untamed Menagerie for so long. I have many of their pieces and I love how unique they are.

    Eninaj does beautiful things with leather. I love how they look and feel!

  2. I haven't really checked out the shops but I've heard a lot about etsy too!:D

    Those are nice, I like the 7th one the best.:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  3. Great finds!! I love the second to last bracelet!! Love the blog and am following you too!

    Thanks for the comment - I answered ur questions on my blog!

    Where is your husband stationed? How long have you guys been in? Oh the Marine corps!!


  4. We are in Monterey, CA right now but moving tomorrow! We are moving to China! crazy huh? He's been in forever, close to 15 years. That makes us sound old.. lol. But I'm 26! hah.

  5. Steph I just put a link on my blog to a dress for the same price that is very similar to the one i got! Hope it helps!!

  6. China sounds amazing!! We are about to get out...I will miss it thats for sure... we head back to Maine at the end of the month!

  7. Thank you! The grey is out in everything but L but I am going to call my local store tomorrow, you never know!

  8. Hi! New to your blog! Love the concept and now following! Etsy is incredible but all too time consuming in general. Just like Youtube - I get sucked in for hours and hours! Too many faves I've hearted.

  9. good luck on your move this weekend!! I love so many etsy store I am kind of addicted! I think the whole paypal aspect makes it too easy for me to buy, buy, BUY! lol

  10. I'm like you and discovered Etsy not too long ago. I just bought a gorgeous necklace there. Can't wait to show and tell ;)

    Good luck on the move, sweetie! Are you excited? Nervous? How long will you live in China?
    You're going to have an amazing time for sure! I love living in other countries - all though it can be a bit frustrating some times with a language you don't understand and a culture that is not familiar (yet!). But I would move around in a minute again! :)

  11. Oooh, thanks for sharing Steph! Relly cute things, now I have another seller to add to my favorites ;)

  12. Thanks for introducing me to a wonderful website. Now I have somewhere else to spend money that I don't have! LOL

  13. I love Etsy and I think I have tons of favorites already.

    This is the first time I've read about this Etsy shop... the items are so pretty. I love the white dress and the sparrow bracelet... so dainty!

  14. Hey Michelle! I am really, really excited! I mean, a little bit nervous too but right now, mostly excited. We will only live in China for just over a year. I'm so lucky that I speak Chinese, I think it would be really hard without that, especially in a country like China. Thanks for asking :) All of our stuff is packed up and gone, now we just have a big road trip to start! I think living in another country is amazing! I wish Americans were more like Europeans in that way, especially with learning languages.

    Thanks for the comments, ladies!


  15. I have perused Etsy before, but have never actually purchased...yet ;)
    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog ;) I always carry hand sanitizer with me! I am quite OCD about it!

  16. So pretty- the sparrows on my wrist bracelet is absolutely precious!

  17. Love the jewelry. Am going to buy the second item.

  18. Thanks for sharing. I have only browsed the Etsy shops also, not yet committed. I think I'll have to step out and purchase something. Good luck with the move today!!

  19. UM. I MUST have Sparrow on my wrist! NOW! Thanks so much for sharing!

  20. Thanks for sharing. I love the 2nd and 3rd necklace and the sparrow bracelet!

    Here are some of my favorite sellers:

  22. I love the last three, they are very classy.

  23. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I remember who you are from F&B at the nest!

    I buy tons of personalized stationery on etsy! My husband also bought me a vintage necklace for Christmas on there. I love it, and I love knowing I'm supporting small businesses.

  24. Oooh I love all of this!

    I try to wear funky/chunky jewelry but it's not me. I love the delicate stuff.

    So pretty!

  25. I love this jewelry--what a great shop! I'm going to beep my own horn because I have an etsy shop (, but my favorites are oh hello friend, timelessNchic, verabel, theblackapple, gogovintage, and so many more!
