Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Hello Friends, it is Leslie here with another Etsy Take Five Tuesday or rather “Take Fifteen”. I hope you enjoy visiting these artists’ shops as much as I did. Even though I am showing lots of turquoise and golden yellow there are many colorful pieces to be found in each fabulous shop. Are you ready? Let’s get started!

This beautiful 8×8 Fine Art Photograph by Jessica of Sweet Eventide could brighten up any room in your home. 2. A fresh ironing board cover by City Chic Country Mouse could really help motivate me to iron or at the very least make my laundry room look a whole lot prettier! 3. I just love the pattern on this mouse pad by shim and sons. Check out their shop for other great patterns. 4. The Citrus Ruffles necklace designed by Danni of oh hello friend could be a lovely birthday present for someone special.

5. I love the “Its whats inside that counts” handprinted screenprint handprinted by Hazel Nicholls of Reapwhatisew. 6. The Blue Dream Charm Necklace by Tamar of Nest Pretty Things is sweet, romantic and just perfect for summer. 7. Thet “love birds” design card by out of Australia would look good framed! 8. I am a huge fan of this illustration titled,“Penny Peacock” — actually I love all of Merilee’s work, the artist behind Tuesday Mourning. 9. A fun print on a piece of fabric for sale at Pink Polka Dot Studio.

10.The Marilyn Necklace is another oh so pretty piece by Tamar of Nest Pretty Things. 11. “Ellen” print by Tuesday Morning again -amazing! 12. “When Will It Stop” by Laura Amiss, the doily clouds are perfect, this piece would be awesome in my niece’s room. 13. I really like this Goldenrod retro tea set at Gathering Vintage because I could use the cream and sugar pieces on their own and then all the pieces would make great holders for flowers, anyways, check out their great shop for more sets. 14. Trays like this hand painted metal one from Modish Vintage are really functional as you can use them, hang them on the wall as art or gift them. 15. This ginko pattern fabric comes in many colors and I think you will enjoy seeing all the fabrics featured in Frumafar as it is a visual treat.

Tomorrow I’m hanging out with Holly for the day while she is in L.A. but I’ll be posting again so stay tuned!!!

    thank you for showing this powederd pink-turquoise-golden collection! My favourite is Reapwhatisew`s print of the traditional 5 babushka dolls (and her sentence of five words: it`s what inside that counts matches!). I love her humour! Hm, yes you are right Leslie, maybe an upgrate of the laundry room with such a friendly bloomy iron board cover would do the trick to iron with ease…

    I never expected ironing board to be pretty, but with the cover from photo number 2 it is simply BEAUTIFUL!!! I must have one of them.

    Oh what a lovely surprise! Thanks so much for including my ‘When will it stop print?’ on this super cool list. Here in Amsterdam it’s more ‘when will it start?’ we could do with some rain :-) L x

    Love the softly-colored finds. I’m especially partial to the ginkgo print fabric – ginkgo leaves are my go-to when I want an element of nature in a design.

    Hi Leslie. I cannot wait to sift through these sources and explore. Everything looks so lovely, the gingo pattern fabric is especially near and dear to my heart.
    I love that I am not the only one who can never narrow down my Etsy love. “Take five” (or rather buy one) always turns into “Take fifteen” (or buy five) at my house, too!
    Guess I better start planning now for the afternoon that will certainly be sucked into the time warp that always occurs on Etsy.
    Have a wonderful day with Holly tomorrow!

    Hello. Just a heads up. Not sure if its just me but probably all Mac users – I am unable to view the images in today’s email. Just thought you’d like to know. Thanks for all the work you poured into today’s email. I always look forward to a break in the day where I can read my daily decor8 email.

    I bought an ironing board cover from City Chic Country Mouse a few months back and I LOVE it! It almost makes me want to leave my ironing board out as decor!
