Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Owl dresses (and shirts!), laser cut necklaces, small objects, perky prints, file folders, fabric featuring chairs and much, much more can be found in this week’s edition of Etsy Take Five Tuesday. I hope you enjoy my picks today as I enjoyed curating this little collection for you. Have fun!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

me&oli has elegant laser cut jewelry and create a limited number of pretty things to wear like this silky cotton owl dress as featured in Frankie, an Australian fashion magazine that I adore. Oh this dress is my dream item, something I’d love to wear but I’m afraid I could never squeeze into anything cut for a 26″ waist – a dream I may never realize until I relocate and get rid of my car (I drive and sit way too much currently) but I’m considering the blouse in the same fabric because it comes in large. And it’s splendid!

Sloe Gin Fizz is Nicole Ray, an illustrator in Michigan with a whimsical eye and lots of perky prints for adorning your walls.

Scarlet Fig fabrics are just sooo cute it hurts just a little bit! :) Created by designer Laurie Wisbrun in Austin, Texas you will adore her birds, chairs, elephants and more. And don’t worry — if you don’t sew she also sells her fabric as pillow covers so you can still enjoy her designs in your home.

I can’t believe I’ve not featured The Small Object in this round up before! I’ve loved her work and even met her a few years ago and it just slipped my mind to mention her. I guess I feel like everyone who is online must know this girl. But if in a wee chance you do not, The Small Object is a doll and she creates the most darling little rubber stamps, custom wedding cake toppers (love!) and other imaginative, fun and inexpensive little things that you will no doubt adore.

Wasn’t this week’s round up cute? I thought so at least… :) I love all of the fun colors and whimsical designs – so much personality you can’t help but feel happy when you peek into these stores. Enjoy!

    That precious airplane in the clouds necklace just made my heart skip a beat! If I weren’t a designer I’d be a pilot so I have a special place in my heart for all things aeronautical. Too sweet!
