Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

May 4, 2010

Today for Etsy Take Five Tuesdays I thought I’d change things up a bit and instead of grouping by seller, I’d just toss out a whole bunch of beautiful things and let you have at them! :) I was so inspired by a sunny lemon theme that I saw on the Etsy home page today that I went with a little lemon, green and blue which — if you’ve been following decor8 this week so far — has been a bit of a color theme here on the blog. I usually get into the green/yellow/blue theme in April but this year it didn’t strike me until just a few days ago. But when it hits, it hits me hard because it’s such a brilliant, happy color combination don’t you think? Let’s see some beautiful things by a bunch of fantastic etsy sellers today, shall we?

Exhibit A: 1. Flores del sol, 2. Depuis, 3. Fleur Fatale, 4. Sleepy King, 5. Bonde and 6. Penny Wishes.

    Oh I love the picture from Honey Tree and Siiso. It’s interesting that you would post blue and yellow, since I just posted a photo with the same color scheme too. Must be the feeling in the air in this time of the year!

    I really like this etsy take 5 format! Maybe it’s just that I’m so happy to see so much cheery yellow :-)

    I looooove flores del sol… I am just waiting for the day when I can get something from her! That turquoise and yellow arrangement might be one of my favorites ever of hers, though. Beautiful!!!!!!!!
