Etsy Take Five Tuesday

September 14, 2010

It’s Etsy time! I have some great sellers for you to enjoy this week. Prints, rubber stamps, badges, paper cuts, porcelain, doodles and much, much more!

First up, Matou en Peluche for original drawings and prints of art deco girls, retro glamor, birds, cats and dogs with a French twist. Lovely! Illustrator Samantha Battersby has a blog, too.

Now it’s time to visit Wapa who is ceramicist Ady Shapira in Israel. Ady lives and works in a small village that is, “surrounded by citrus orchards near the Mediterranean Sea.”

I found out about Paule Trudel Bellemare from Anna over at Door Sixteen since her dog Fritz was a “model” for one of Paule’s portraits. I love her custom work of owners with their dogs, this would be the best gift ever!

Finally we have the lovely work of Flora Chang from Happy Doodle Land, a designer/illustrator originally from Taiwan who works for Hallmark Cards in Missouri and has her lovely doodle shop on the side. :)

I hope that you enjoyed my picks for the week!

    Great finds this week! I especially love the Israeli cermacist and Paule. (even though I’m not such a animal person, but your right this would make for a knockout gift)
