Oh, Hello Friend!

I’ve refreshed the new blog of the week, did you see it? It’s Oh, Hello Friend! This blog is by the talented Danni Hong in California who has a beautiful etsy shop and who is such a sweetheart… I just love her soft, feminine aesthetic and all of the pretty things that she produces. I think you will really enjoy following her blog — here is just a glimpse of her beautiful photos which capture bits of her life that she shares on Oh, Hello Friend.

You can find Danni at her blog, Oh, Hello Friend and also on Flickr, her website, and her pretty etsy shop.

Snug is Online!

Remember the sweet little shop tour we took last week when I introduced you to snug in my neighborhood? Well shop girls Berit and Kerstin just let me know that their little snug shop is open for business and that they will ship worldwide so if you see anything you like, show them a little love. :)

SNUG - open!

I plan to buy some of the candle holders shown above — they are so cute, you should see them in person! I want to line some up on my dining room table. :)

Cotton Idea Studio – 50% off

I was so sad to hear from Cotton Idea Studio today because after three years they have decided to close up shop. I wish them the best of everything… and hope that their road leads them to happy new places. Let’s send them off with a smile, shall we? Why not help them clear their shelves — they are offering a 50% discount valid until the end of March on their website. Please go have a look — products are limited so don’t think to hard about it, now is the time to be spontaneous! :)

Cotton Idea Studio Discount

Wishing you well Cotton Idea Studio!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

It’s time to check out five Etsy stores that are on my radar this week… would you enjoy viewing them for a moment along with me? I found some pretty drawings and paintings, soft and feminine photographs, bold and bright fabrics and lyrics in glitter!

I’ve talked about Susannah Tucker here before but have to share some of her latest photographs with you – I especially enjoy that some are mounted on boxes ready to hang and also that you can choose from magnets and cards, too. What a lovely section for spring!

Melissa Bombardiere is a graphic designer who prints her own fabric in bold, bright colorways that would be nice to transform into crafty things around the home.

Handmade Love is a shop run by a sweet lady named Dawn Tan in Australia who not only authors a beautiful blog but who creates sweet drawings and paintings – some with fun words on them, others with glitter, some with animals… and she has a beautiful fully illustrated zine called, Favourite Things Zine, that looks like something I’d love to own.

Christine Lindstrom of Mai Autumn is a shop that carries both the original paintings and fine art prints of this New Jersey artist. Her watercolors are so soft, ahhh. So pretty.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Claudia Kay Photography is another fantastic shop on Etsy where you can find beautiful photos and postcards. I just love her hearts and flowers photos – my favorites!

What caught your eye?
