Since it is so close to the shortest day and seemed to be getting dark from about lunchtime, evening time provided the inspiration. As for all the beautiful handmade items on Etsy itself, well, it was a bit of a challenge to whittle it down to only 12 things to collect together. That said, I love each of the twelve items I have chosen, which includes this gorgeous “Enchanted Night” Christmas Ornament made Etchy Things which is based in Vancouver, Canada.
When it came to naming my Etsy treasury – “Eventide” seemed to be as good a way to capture the spirit of impending darkness as any. With a variety of lovely items from star sprinkled tea inspired by Dr Who, to a beautiful constellation necklace featuring Orion, to images of flocking birds, I think the items evoke the feel I was looking for – but let me know if you think so too!
