Etsy Take Five Tuesday

It’s time to check out five Etsy stores that are on my radar this week… would you enjoy viewing them for a moment along with me? I found some pretty drawings and paintings, soft and feminine photographs, bold and bright fabrics and lyrics in glitter!

I’ve talked about Susannah Tucker here before but have to share some of her latest photographs with you – I especially enjoy that some are mounted on boxes ready to hang and also that you can choose from magnets and cards, too. What a lovely section for spring!

Melissa Bombardiere is a graphic designer who prints her own fabric in bold, bright colorways that would be nice to transform into crafty things around the home.

Handmade Love is a shop run by a sweet lady named Dawn Tan in Australia who not only authors a beautiful blog but who creates sweet drawings and paintings – some with fun words on them, others with glitter, some with animals… and she has a beautiful fully illustrated zine called, Favourite Things Zine, that looks like something I’d love to own.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Christine Lindstrom of Mai Autumn is a shop that carries both the original paintings and fine art prints of this New Jersey artist. Her watercolors are so soft, ahhh. So pretty.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Claudia Kay Photography is another fantastic shop on Etsy where you can find beautiful photos and postcards. I just love her hearts and flowers photos – my favorites!
