Etsy Take Five Tuesday

February 22, 2011

Hello peeps! Time for more goodies to love and fave this week from Etsy. I hope you like my finds for this week, I had a lot of fun rounding these shops up and, as usual, I ended up finding a few things to add to my wish list. Hope you find some new favorites, too. Now c’mon, let’s go shopping!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

The Wheatfield by Katie Daisy has lots of perky, colorful blooms and inspiring messages on her prints, cards and other paper goods which she makes in her studio in the mountains of North Carolina. Her notecards are fantastic. Visit her website, too.

Hilary Upton Photography – Lovely fine photography by Hilary Upton in Auckland, New Zealand who is inspired it seems by her travels, the coast, flowers and tiny chairs… I love her peony series postcard set. Follow her blog here.

The Spotless Loop in Lisbon, Portugal has very creative embroidered patterns on wood – I love this shop. The cookie pendant is a favorite of mine, so sweet and calorie-free!

    I was just thinking about Katie Daisy’s work last night (as I attempt my own pretty word art for a present for my niece :).
    But I must say I am infatuated by The Prairabirds. This work has really grabbed me, thank you!

  • Reply Kissen February 24, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    Went to Hillary’s page and I was suprised or should I say confused?! There were so many individual pictures that I was wondering if some people ever stop being creative and innovative.
    Somehow makes me feel bad about myself. ;)

    Anyways. Nice selection of pictures around here.

  • Reply laura February 24, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    I very much like the silhouettes, but I adore the ginko leaf image. It has an elegant, understated quality that I think would stand the test of time. Stunning!

    I am discovering your blog and I am amazed by your finds !
    I have things on Etsy myself and feel a little under the spotlights since you seem to make a very deep job by researching.
    Hope my page will please your eyes as well…
    I am French and I am glad to discover each day that American people take Art very seriously ! It is a true pleasure to work in your country and to meet, like now, very professional people.
    Thank you for your great work and commitment !
