Etsy Take Five Tuesday

January 26, 2011

Hello everyone! It’s time for Etsy Take Five Tuesday so today I’ll share five etsy sellers who rock my world. From fashion illustration to poufs for the living room floor, perhaps you will find a few favorite things of your own. Enjoy!

If you love fashion illustration in dreamy watercolor pastels, then Cate Parr is the artist for you. Her work drips with gorgeousness and oozes with style. Original art, mini paintings and prints — she offers many choices and they are all breathtaking. You can also request a custom piece, wow, imagine that!

F2 Images has touching photography that I’m sure you’ll like. I especially love this antique oval framed pink walking stick with the green velvet ribbon. It would be perfect displayed on an art wall.

If you adore tiny stuffed little bits of cuteness then Stitchface is for you. Based in Toronto, these one-of-a-kind animals are lovely to adorn a shelf or to place in something like this.

If you love gorgeous, handmade and super affordable poufs then lacasadecoto in Barcelona is definitely the shop for you. She is really into color but also makes poufs in light gray and does custom work if you want something more sophisticated for your home. But if it’s playful you love, then you have a rainbow to choose from. I can’t believe how stunning they are for the price — wow, you can scoop up several and support an artist while simultaneously sticking to your budget.

It’s been awhile since I wrote about my talented friend Marisa from Creative Thursday. I’m always amazed by how quickly she can paint the whimsical little characters in her head and how they radiant such joy. I love how she uploads what is in her heart onto paper…

    Love Cate Parr’s watercolors! That dreamy style has really been hitting the spot for me lately.

    I’m also a big fan of Marisa’s illustrative style, and her message (“hold on to your dreams”). :)

    F2 images look amazing! So beautiful. And, those cute little stuffed animals would be perfect adornments for the crazy amount of baby gifts I’ll be buying in the next couple months.

    I love Etsy Tuesdays :)

    Oh l love those Cate Parr illustrations! Just beautiful. It almost reminds me of paintings done on silk.

    sorry, but I think you should not draw the conclusion that neutrals (grey) are more sophisticated than color.

    Thank you (in all caps)! Just a few weeks ago I was looking at some poufs on Etsy and the Pouf + shipping costs to Germany made it quit an investment. Did you see she also makes a grey cover for the IKEA Alseda stool? Cute!

    LOVE the Stitchface animals and the pouffes. The silver is gorgeous and they really are wonderfully affordable… if only the shipping wasn’t so much to me :(
