Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Etsy Take Five Tuesday this week has a little something for everyone and I’ve arranged them into two sets: Girly and a bit more graphic with a mini bonus set of some pretty portrait paintings that I found from an artist who lives is Israel. I know it’s not your usual five sellers but sometimes I get bored with that format! I hope so much that you enjoy these little picks for your shopping basket today!

Handmade vegan shoes by The Generation, 4. Felted art by Julie Blanchette, 5. Calm photograph by Aimee Clare and 6. Little Lamb Organic Hat made by SweetPeaToadTots.

    12! What a treat. The vintage tennis rackets are too sweet and I actually thought the “item” was the photograph, what a wonderful composition.

    I think this time I cannot pick a fave – I love almost everything – all those items are so much my style – 4 or 5 or them are in my Etsy Favourites! Especially the second arrangemet – the bag, the shoes, the card! Great, Holly.

    I love the way this collection is put together. So pretty but whimsical (i know that work gets thrown around alot, but its true!). I’m also loving the little lambie hat and that stripey bag looks amazing! But I think it looks even more amazing because of all the fun stuff you paired it up with….the yellow shoes, those cool pillows and even the cards that echo the stripes.

    YAY! Made me happy!

    I really like the beautiful soft colours of those shoes and the styling of the tennis rackets – your new way of laying out the group photographs is really lovely. Would you consider doing a post on image layout for us some time as I’m sure we would all fnd it benificial ?

    Wonderful shops, Holly! So glad to see the sweet eco-friendly shoes featured. I’m particularly enamored of the Tush Tush shop – I bought some of her lovely tiny canvas prints last week (have a few more on my wishlist). Her work is soulful, warm and unique.

    I really like all the prints from Tush Tush, they’re lovely. Also like those cushions…… I’m a cushionista don’t you know!!! Unusual cushions make me smile.

    Agree with Helen about the photo layout, it is lovely…. something I need to focus on more.

    When will you be holding your next e-course Holly?

    I am a bit fan of Julia Blanchette’s tiny felted artworks – they are just sublime. (She is an Australian Etsy seller too – go Aussies!) I’ve just subscribed to this blog and am really enjoying reading it over my morning cup of tea.

    Thanks so much for including the Tag Team Tompkins print in this collection… I’ve not seen their work before, and just love it. They have such a fabulous range of beautiful illustrations with a little bit of an edge to them. Think there will definitely be some purchases (and probably some blog love!) in that direction very soon!
