It’s Tuesday and you know what that means! It’s Etsy time! For the picks of this week, I’ve decided to link you to many stores versus only five since I was in Hamburg last week and missed writing this column — so double your pleasure with 10+ shops today. I’ve grouped my finds into five sets: bold moves, striking black, je t’aime, lady like and mother nature — so there is a little something for every taste. I hope you find something to love…
Spot any favorites this week?

I love the idea of painted spoons on display and found these by stylist Rebecca Newport and thought I’d show you what I’m referring to. I’ve noticed painted spoons (in chalky matte paint) a few times in magazines lately and wonder if this is the beginning of a new styling trend in photography? How about painted bowls too? If so, great, because there is a lot you can do with this idea!
Rebecca Newport is a still life, food, interiors and props stylist in the UK who has a textiles degree from the Chelsea College of Art and Design and most recently worked as a buyer at Marks & Spencer before turning her attention to photography.
Lovely work, Rebecca and best of luck with your new career as a stylist– you are clearly very talented! :)

Who can get enough of fashion illustration, am I right? That is why when Brooklyn-based illustrator Samantha Hahn wrote in to share her latest work I couldn’t resist showing them to you. Colorful, cheerful, energetic, whimsical… and just in time because this is when we need color the most to boost our spirits — the dead of winter! Looking at her images reminds me that Spring is just around the corner and I can’t wait!

If you like what you see above, Samantha is part of a fashion illustration gallery show at Gallery Hanahou in New York City that opens January 20th and these four pieces above are part of that show. The great part is, that if you like one of them you can buy it before the show opens — you have first dibs! Each illustration is 16 x 20″ and comes framed and matted in white gallery frames and are $500 USD each. If you are interested in purchasing, please contact Koko: koko AT cwc-i.com to help with the process.
The name of each print appears above and I’m sure that you’ll agree that they are very special pieces. What a lovely job Samantha and good luck with the show!
