Etsy Faves

New: Belart

July 1, 2010

I’m so happy and proud of Ishtar in Madrid today because she has opened her etsy shop after much thought and preparation — I hope that you will browse her designs and perhaps even find something for your home from her small yet sweet shop because I’d love to see some decor8 readers support her new venture. She has totes and art and all of the fabric that you see is organic cotton. So cute. Ishtar named her new business Belart because it is her mother’s last name and she just likes it…

    That bottom print reminds me of the illustrations in this children’s cookbook from the 50’s that my mom passed down to me. I love it!

    Lovely work. Checked out her shop and there were only a couple of items. Will check back soon — love her stuff!

    thanks holly! I wanted to finish my children’s space. I was looking at their room this morning and there was space for two prints. So off I went and bought two!

    She is my friend I’m VERY VERY VERY VEEERY happy for her :)

    so pretty! I want one of the prints in my new apartment. and such a lovely blog! I love that it’s in English and Spanish–I suppose I’ll be brushing up on my Spanish skills a bit, but the alternation (as opposed to just plain translation) adds a genuine touch.
    The images, however, don’t need any translation. so nice!

    I’ve know Ishtar and her work for a while now and she’s absolutely amazing!
    I’m glad she got featured here! I’m sure it will give her shop re-opening a very festive (and well deserved) BOOST! :o)

    I love the packaging! What a classy way to wrap up that fabric. Need to go check out Ishtar’s shop, right away!
