Etsy Take Five Tuesday

April 6, 2010

Today you’ll find a slight red and blue focus, a little nautical and a little Scandinavian… and some very sweet scratch “save the date” cards and giant speech bubbles on a stick, too! Today is all about color, color, color and some cheeky fun.

Goldy Locks is a Danish-American designer who designs and makes party crafts by hand. She has a background in magazine publishing in the U.S. and recently relocated to Copenhagen to explore her Danish roots. Her work is available via downloadable PDF files in her etsy shop — small toppers for cupcakes or larger ones to hold in a photo, Goldy Locks is fun and fresh!

Suzanne Nicoll is an artist in Connecticut who runs a small design studio along with her husband. I imagine these mermaid prints would be so sweet in a child’s room, don’t you? Especially with bedding in sea tones and a sunny yellow ceramic lamp on the bedside table. Can you see that too?

Samantha French is currently focused on painting swimmers both above and underwater. I can see these in a crisp blue, black and white bathroom with a black beaded chandelier. You can view more of her beautiful work here on her website.

Scratch and save the date? Is this not the cutest idea in the world? Artist Leslie Hamer in Chicago is brilliant. See more in her shop, Unless Someone Like You

    Fantastic finds… I need one of those speech bubbles, I’d write ‘Don’t ask me, I’m designing’ in it tonight.

    Love your picks today Holly! So fresh + FUN! I just got back from the grocery store, and this thought popped in my head of everyone walking around with speech bubbles — “hey look, chocolate!” would be in mine :)

    Wow! I just saw Suzanne Nicoll’s mermaid prints (framed) on a home decor website this weekend for $110! Her Etsy prices are much more reasonable. They are indeed sweet-looking.
