Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

It’s time to highlight some of my personal favorites over at Etsy this week! Today I have an eclectic mix for you, a little something for all starting with art that has heart, then moving on to pom pom headbands (you’ll see!), sweet fabrics, crafty finds and wrapping up with some pretty sweet prints by (surprise!) a guy – let’s face it, the ladies tend to dominate over at Etsy so when I find a guy with a great shop I usually do a little woot! woot! dance in my seat. Have fun!

Love is in this air with Sarah + Bendrix from the UK. Don’t these look like something you’d find in some amazing London flat in Livingetc magazine or something? Love these. And best part, they look great on display long after February 14th.

Maranon is amazing! Her knit and hand embroidered accessories are edgy and bold. Imagine wearing this pom pom headband? I can’t, but it’s very cool, especially for fashion shoots, runway, or if you’re hosting a fun cocktail party at home – it would be a riot to see what your friends think when you answer the door with giant pom poms on your head which remind me a bit of a mouse. Really sweet. The necklaces on the other hand, I would totally wear. Some of these would be great with a black turtleneck, some skinny jeans and a pair of caramel leather boots.

On the prowl for fabrics that are sweet and colorful, perhaps for crafts or the bedroom of your little one? Scarlet Fig by fabric designer Laurie Wisbrun sells her own original designs available to ship worldwide — fabrics and pillow covers are available.

Littleclouds is from the UK but recently moved to Hong Kong on a little adventure where she crafts all things cute from paper and fabric. You can’t help but notice her slight nod to her English roots in her products — and I like that. Her tea bag coasters are screen printed onto cork and are a personal favorite of mine.

I haven’t shared work from Carving My Initials in awhile so in case you’d not read about him before, here is your chance to be exposed to some gorgeous lines and shapes – these are prints made from original paintings by artist Jim DeLucia in Rochester, New York.

    I love the work of the first two artists! I think the necklaces are quite affordable given the amount of work (and time) it represents to make. It is the right price point and I would spend that much for a cute accessory, handmade on top of it! Great shop!!

    Ooh! Ooh! I love the necklaces and heart art – though I must admit now my wheels are turning as to how I could do my own little DIY version of the heart art!

    And I just clicked through Littleclouds shop & started cracking up over the “I heart poo” card – I may have to order that for my friend who has a toddler ;)

    So there I was pondering on what to give my husband on Valentine’s Day, when I wandered over to Decor8 to check out your latest posts, and my eye immediately fell upon those wonderful framed paper hearts – and what do you know, she’s a UK seller too. I’ve checked out her shop, and already chosen the picture I’m going to purchase. C’est trop parfait! Merci :-)

    Love the picks, especially those from sarah & bendrix. It’s a while since I am thinking of putting some art on walls, but there are so many great ideas on Etsy I just have not made up my mind yet. I have bought some wall decals from Etsy tho, one of them is of a zebra and my partner is mad about zebras. It’s his birthday tomorrow, so I am looking forward to giving it to him:)
