Etsy: Take Five Tuesdays

It’s time for Take Five Tuesdays so let’s see what’s on my radar for this week. Ready? Let’s explore…

If your name starts with a T, I, or L (or last name) you’re in luck because Dutch blogger Yvestown opened her new etsy store under the same name and she’s selling handmade box letters in addition to her chair pattern for the IKEA Skruvsta chair along with vintage teacup candles. They won’t last long, so if you like ’em… Run!

Marisol Toledo of Dita’s Bazaar lives in Chile and is an art teacher and a photographer. She creates screen prints and likes to layer her images on vintage wallpaper along with Spanish text.

Handmade by Moi is a little shop owned by Tanya Todd, a Canadian based in the south of France. She loves linen and I adore her lavender tea bag sachets made for placing in your dresser to keep your clothes smelling pretty. They’re so simple and yet so charming and useful. Tanya is also a blogger, I loved reading about some of her adventures in Europe.

eighty8words is a wordsmith and a silversmith who decided to combine her passions to form a business creating wearable words. These are quite cute – great gifts!

Paloma’s Nest is one of my new favorites on etsy. I enjoy (so much!) her understated yet gorgeous ceramics in organic shapes, some with meaningful hand-stamped words. I’ve been watching her shop for weeks and just love how her product line has grown in such a short period of time. In addition to her plates, she now creates cards, ornaments, bowls, and the Will You Marry Me? tiny text bowl box set — so guys if you’re looking to pop the question, this is truly a most romantic way to do it.

Take Five Tuesdays is a weekly decor8 feature dedicated to highlighting talented artists on Etsy. If you or a friend owns an etsy store that you think I’d like, please contact me at decor8blog{at}

    Thank you so much for the feature of my work.
    The “Will you marry me?” box set was a hit on it’s first day in the shop, so the link says it’s sold out…but it’s not !! I have more! I love that I (or my pieces) get to be a part of some sweet guy’s marriage great is that??!
    I have more listed in the shop, as well as lots of other goodies, so be sure to check it out:
