Look Alikes Galore! Wednesday Wanderings and the Shops Found Along the Way

I enjoy Etsy's decor feature where they use a real home as inspiration and find "look alikes" in the shops. I thought it might be fun to do something similar.

So this week's wanderings will start with a kitchen found on Flickr from A Lovely Life.  I love this cabinet - she says her hubby built it for her!
So here we go -- see if you can match the "look alikes"!

Gift for the Kitchen Cook by Dirty Birdies Vintage

Apron in Yellow and Green by Maplewood Boutique

Luv You Mommy Monster Dish by creativelo at Pink House Art Studio   

Petit Oizo by Galerie Anais

Felted Wool Bowl by Felted

Eat Sign by Old New Again

Vintage Cottage Red Tray by Pretty Farm Primitives

Vintage Kitchen Towel-Fruit Bowl by In2VintageCloths

Pyrex Mixing Bowls by The Trendy Kitchen

Spice Islands Cookbook by Cloudkeeper

Lap Throw Quilt by Frivolous Necessity

Now that was a lot of fun, if I do say so myself!  Did you match up all the treasures? Please do go by each shop -- each one has lots of lovely handmade or vintage goodies to see!  And also pop over to Flickr and check out our hostess' photos at A Lovely Life -- lots of home decor and crafting. Plus, she has an Etsy shop just full of wonderful things (love the jam jar embroidered tops)! Go see at Modern Prairie Designs.  

Oh, and leave her some cookies on her counter as a thank you for letting us visit!!

Wonder where we'll wander Wednesday?  (Say that five times real fast!!)  Join me next week and find out!
