Etsy: A great place for holiday shopping!

I challenged my dear friend Beastmomma to an Etsy throwdown this Christmas. The rules of the game - approximately $25, anything on Etsy, Go!

This is actually a tough challenge, because there are zillions of neat things on Etsy in this price range. I have chosen my gift for her, but I won't post it here because she's a reader. (Not that easily foiled, Beastmomma!)

While browsing, I came across something quite awesome (well beyond our $25 challenge) that I just have to show you...

It's a Wall Tentacle by ArtAKimbo from Redding, CT.
