Good morning friends! How are ya? I hope that you are ready for Etsy Take Five Tuesday because I thought I’d get started early on this column today. You can shop for art prints, cosmetic bags, cute slippers, porcelain jewelry, mid century vintage goods for the home and more. See what you like and have fun viewing today’s picks! Oh and just so you’re in the loop, next Tuesday I have a guest who will be here to share her favorite etsy shops since I’ll be in London so you won’t miss a beat!
Sophie Blackall. “Sophie Blackall has illustrated over fifteen books for children and her paintings and three dimensional works have been exhibited in galleries in Sydney, Paris and New York, which sounds like a shopping bag but is actually true.”
Lila Ruby King, “I am an Australian designer, currently based in Athens, Greece. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Arts, majoring in printmaking and with a minor in painting. I have since completed a Certificate IV in Jewelery Design and Manufacture.”
Jonty Bloom. “I am an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. I like color. I like nature. That’s why I live in New York City!”
Ameelia Bedelia.”I am a self-proclaimed pack-rat who gets way too much excitement out of very old things. I love the patterns, shapes and textures that came out of the mid-century era. I love discovering little pieces of history and using them to transform my space. Buying vintage is the ultimate in recycling, and I believe that used and re-used items have so much more character than what you find in stores today.”
JuJuBaju. “I’m Leila. Wife to a hardworking-so-I-can-stay-at-home-and-be-creative husband and mama to two beautiful-if-I-don’t-say-so-myself girls. We live in Winnemucca, NV. If you’ve every driven on I-80 you’ve probably stopped here for gas.”
