Etsy Take Five Tuesday: Gift List
I thought it may be fun to pull together a little gift list of sorts, not really MY personal gift list but one based on what lots of my dear readers (you!) have responded to in the past when I’ve shared some of these shops on my blog. To have a little fun, I’ve created an imaginary recipient for each grouping for a good laugh. Here are 24 Etsy Finds for this week, have fun!
For the fun, social type who can’t be bothered with negativity, this girl is frequently called a Pollyanna, loves pastels, puts stickers on her $2K iMac and still enjoys sending handwritten cards: 1. Let It Go print, 2. Soundless Symphony print, 3. Mini fabric stickers for the computer and 4. Clocks, cakes and keys card.
For the organized girl who hasn’t changed her haircut since middle school, she enjoys strong tea and graphic patterns in two-tone colors only. She’s really into the mustache-as-motif trend and adores her pug, Rufus Winkledink who secretly wishes she’d get a boyfriend because he feels like, so smothered. 5. Summer print, 6. 2011 Chevron Monthly Planner, 7. Blue Vintage French tea cups and 8. Custom oil painting of your pet (love this!).
For the cute couple who hold hands constantly while the rest of us gag, she “deals” with his two cats, Frisky and Whimpers, who enjoy swinging from the drapes and turning her Room & Board sofa into a scratching post while he “deals” with her love of affordable Etsy art that is on every.single.wall of their home. The nude Native American, however, wasn’t an issue and no eye rolling ensued when she popped that fine female into a frame. Go figure. 9. New Mexico print, 10. Fox and Hens Chase limited edition print, 11. 2011 wall calendar and 12. Custom family portrait, just send photos!
For the dreamy, spaced-out friend who lives in her own little bubble floating on feathers all day (she annoys you, face it), her favorite childhood book was anything by Beatrix Potter and Mad Libs was her passion while everyone else was playing Spin The Bottle. Graceful and sweet, she is addicted to Glee and loves ballet, still displaying her pink shoes proudly from the 8th grade over her bedroom mirror. 13. How to set a table print, 14. Tulip Bib Shirt, 15. Ballerina print and 16. Feathered ceramic cup.
For the mid century modern fan who likes to add a little quirk to the mix, this guy has 15 Eames chairs, only eats organic, works in an art gallery, and is crazy about Mad Men, Depeche Mode, walks on the beach, and romantic poetry. 17. Funky Diamonds print, 18. Doll print, 19. Our Little Friends print and 20. Pomegranate tree cushion.
For the sensitive, sweet crafty friend — her idea of the best night ever is to stay home writing, crafting, cuddling and chowing down on amazing cookies with a tall glass of icy cold milk. Hey wait, isn’t that most of us? 21. Little Bear original painting, 22. Felt Wool Petit Mascots Japanese craft book, 23. Earl Grey Sandwich Cookies (I’ve ordered these many times and love them!) and 24. Color Keys print.
Ha ha, aren’t my descriptions lame!? I think so, and I’m giving you the permission to agree. So, did you see anything? What did you fave from my finds above? Care to share?
