Etsy Take Five Tuesday

November 10, 2009

Hello friends and welcome to another week of Etsy finds, I think you’ll be inspired by at least one of these great sellers today! I’m excited to share with you these five shops in particular because they’re all relatively new finds for me too so I share your excitement. From screen prints to portraits, scarves to gorgeous wooden things for your kitchen, there’s a little something for everyone!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

First up is print maker Dee Beale in the UK. Her screen prints, which feel very Scandinavian to me, are just lovely!

I am so happy to learn that Lisa DeJohn now has an Etsy shop. Her illustrative work is so fun and full and detail and imagination… The ducks rowing totally remind me of the Charles River in Boston in front of Harvard. I wonder if this is what inspired her work?

Yokoo Scarves & Accessories will keep you warm and cozy on crisp evenings… These are utterly gorgeous and most can be custom made in any color of your liking.

I found out about Art by Elizabeth Bauman over on Victoria’s blog this week. These portraits are just great! Good find, Victoria and so very, very you! Please see Victoria’s portrait collection from various artists over her sofa for a little decorating inspiration.

Gorgeous, organic wood things for the home by Nature Design… The cups are amazing, I cannot stop looking at them! I imagine an interiors stylist or still life/food photographer could do something really neat with all of these gorgeous goodies.

    A great collection of Etsy picks. I love Dee Beale’s prints and Lisa DeJohn’s work, with the nut-roasting squirrels, is rather quirky.

    Oooh! Thanks for the introduction to Nature Design. I’m familiar with a few of the other sellers’ work, but had never this the last shop. Pretty wooden spoons are always a wonderful gift. Great idea.

    I love Etsy. I could buy a thing or two or three every day. I hadn’t seen the Lisa DeJohn prints. I suspect I will own one by the end of the day!

    Thanks for the great finds! Etsy is a HUGE world of fabulous things…but, sometimes overwhelming! I love the first print-maker, being a mid-cent. modern fan myself.

    BTW, I heard about you through Cindy at

    Best wishes & happy Snoozin’!

      Mijk – That would be a great idea and I’ve thought about it but honestly, I have a very hard time navigating that site since most sellers are writing in German and I cannot read German fluently yet. But once I’m fluent, I would love to do that!

    Love the natural materials of the bottom seller – great

    Love the Yookoo knitwear, fall is my absolute favorite time of year because of all the accessories! I’d love to add one of their knits to my collection, so warm and cozy.
