Etsy Take Five Tuesday

May 18, 2010

Greetings decor8 readers! This is Heather Spriggs Thompson from Gathering Spriggs based out of Nashville, TN and I am here today as a guest columnist presenting Etsy Take Five Tuesday with some of my personal favorite etsy sellers! What an honor to be here filling in for Holly while she is in London for her book. I will be back next month (June 1) for more favorites when she is working in Copenhagen. Yippee! Hope you enjoy this collection. Can you tell I heart pink, aqua and golden tones? Its the theme today… dreamy spring pastels.

You may know the beautiful work of photographer Cori Kindred but did you know that she also sells vintage housewares in a shop on etsy called Mushroom and Moss Vintage? Her familiar style and love for nature and thriftiness shines through in this colorful, quirky mid-century shop. Based out of Portland, Oregon she is part of a creative circle and I especially love the styling of her vintage finds and of course the photography is perfection!

Nestables has beautifully sewn objects for the home such as pillows and banners from many of my favorite textile designers like Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, and Joel Dewberry. Based in Ohio, this crafter loves to nest and create sweet lovelies for her home and yours too.

The dreamy work of Los Angeles artist, Zuppaartista, makes me start California dreamin’. This is ethereal photography with an artist’s eye and a nostalgic hue. If you love LA or need a souvenir of your recent Pacific Coast visit then this shop is for you!

What is not to love about these precious toss pillows? Pastel hues, graphic and whimsical typeface sewn on with words of comfort… Ahh… heavenly. I could just curl up right now. These treasures are handmade by Lana of Honey Pie Design who is a New York-based graphic designer and stay-at-home mom extraordinaire who sews for her daughter and for the love of crafting. “I love working with my hands and am inspired by colors, patterns, textures, be it paper, fabric or yarn,” Lana says.

Margot Bianca is the shop of an incredibly talented textile designer who is a practicing studio artist that also enjoys selling functional products. I fell in love with her work about a year ago as I was looking for some napkins for my home and spotted her Seedling Dinner Napkins (shown above) in my favorite color: coral. Her work has a global flare that works perfectly for summer dining alfresco. Her designs are influenced by Indonesian and Indian designs and created  using traditional batik techniques. For more info about her process read her profile page.

Blessings today and see you back in a couple of weeks! – Heather.
