{OH NO!} where's rachio?

Hopefully you can guess from the *hilarious* title of this post that Rachel is not here today ... Oh no! She has been whisked off by her lovely boy to celebrate her birthday at an exciting secret destination .. but where?? Well, actually I don't know!
So, instead you have a little guest post from me, Harriet. Hello, nice to meet you!

When it comes to birthdays and (more importantly) the presents, unless I'm making the gift myself, (i do like a bit of DIY!) I love to hunt for the perfect surprise from independent shops, and of course my first port of call is the wonder that is Etsy! I'm assuming you're all familiar with Etsy by now, you are OHNORACHIO fans after all! 
I think you'll agree, you're guaranteed to find something beautifully made and totally unique over there.

I don't know about you, I *always* start out with the best intentions when I begin my search for the perfect gift for my mum/boy/bezzie/cat on etsy ... however ... something seems to take over me and before I know it I have completely forgotten the task at hand and am half way through creating a substantial list entitled : 'for MY birthday i would like...' 

Please tell me I'm not the only one?

Well today I thought it would be a good opportunity to get into the spirit of birthdays and show you all some of my most favouritist of things around on etsy at the moment. This treasury pretty much sums up my current loves : muted pastels, succulents, and cats (obviously).

I do hope you enjoyed my *slightly* self indulgent blog post today! Have you seen any favourites on etsy recently that you'd like to add to your own birthday wish list? (I'd love to see! Leave me a link in the comments)

Now, please excuse me whilst I sit and sulk over the fact it's not my birthday, and that I'm not away enjoying myself on a surprise holiday ... sighhhhhhh
