Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Hello friends! Sorry for not getting this up a bit sooner. Hopefully we can apply a little bit of better late than never to excuse my tardiness? And how are you doing? Is all well for you?

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

I’ve talked about Leah Duncan and her illustrations before but I keep returning to her prints and tea towels because I really like her style. If you missed my review of her work before, here’s another chance to bookmark her site – she’s brilliant.

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Whisker Graphics sells printable stationery and tags and big, yummy spools of baker’s twine in pretty colors which is all the rage and a bit hit when used on gifts.

Mélangerie Inc. is a Brooklyn-based design consultancy that specializes in one-of-a-kind gifts and other designs for both large and small events, like weddings and parties. These bags are so cute, a great way for guests to write down and air their dirty laundry at your party. :)

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Mandy Lynne, also known as Skippy Designs, has such a fresh and whimsical view of the world. Looking at her light hearted work cannot help but inspire joy – a little vintage and a lot of color make her photographs very special.

Lilla Lotta is designer Anna Barrow in France who makes by hand cotton tapes and fabric in her little studio – she also accepts custom orders if you have a shop or special occasion for instance.

    Hello Holly~ these were all wonderful. Wish I could wrap them all for friends with that lovely twine. I just started blogging and an exciting part was adding your wonderful Haus Maus blog to my sidebar!

    Wouhh!!! top ETSY finds today… I like them all, but have a special crush for the French lady and her hand made cotton tapes.
    I have been looking for a supplier to get some nice labels done for my creations, maybe this is what I need!!
