Etsy Take Five Tuesday

December 1, 2009

It’s Etsy Take Five Tuesday time and though Miss Holly here is battling a head cold (I nearly went a full year without a cold, oh well!) on this very crisp December day I am still going to bring you today’s picks! I plan to put on another pot of tea in a moment but first, as I sniffle and sneeze my way around Etsy, I simply must share a few of my finds with you. Pastel prints, gorgeous jewelry, lovely paper goods and gift wrap supplies and soft, girly photographs that will have you dreaming of vintage open toe shoes with tights and Paris, my love. Enjoy!

The simple modern aesthetic of Olive Manna will no doubt charm your little socks off. Love her paper goods which includes gift wrapping supplies and DIY paper balls, coasters melamine plates, textiles and more!

Elephantine is a collection of handmade jewelry that would be a most cherished present in case you’re looking… it’s by Settle-based designer Rachel Chew.

Leaves and Feathers is the work of Faith Evans-Sills in Brooklyn who is a mother, wife and artist with a dreamy style that will carry you away in a pastel breeze… Notes, prints and more!

If you’re looking for jewelry with a bit of an edge, Laura Lombardi is your lady with lots of runway-esque glam happening here. Love it. Especially the feather.

Lola’s Room in the UK is talented budding photographer Cassia Beck. She has such a soft, feminine vintage touch to her body of work. So very easy to love.

    Cassia’s photos are perfection in my opinion. She’s my “idol” when it comes to photography. :) Thanks for sharing such great finds with us, Holly! xo
