Etsy Take Five Tuesday

It’s time to shop handmade with me today at Etsy! Here are my top five shops for the week, I hope that you find some new and lovely things to pad your nest or give to your friends.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Diem Design Photography is so lovely with a vintage modern touch. Relaxing… I can see these framed in a bedroom.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Martha and Ash in South Carolina makes custom pillows, drapes, dog beds and even some sweet little heart coasters that I think are absolutely darling.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Tilt shift photography is a favorite photo trend of mine right now so I naturally love Etsy seller Petit Paris who miniaturizes such a lovely city into the sweetest bites.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Be Happy Now in Israel makes me feel happy now… I find her work really intriguing. I love this photo and this tiny video to go along with it. It made me feel good inside. I want to see more animated photographs like this with hand drawn illustrations on them. Imagine seeing them in digital magazines on the iPad? Oh my. That would definitely inspire me…

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Lamp Shade Designs makes custom shades in modern graphic prints. One would look great over a white Saarinen tulip table in an eating nook.

    I’m with you–I love that style of photography. However, I am very excited to discover the lampshades and will be contacting Dana at LampShadeDesigns! This style of shade would be the perfect update for several of my vintage table lamps. Thanks so much!

    I was instantly smitten by the mod shades at Lamp Shade Designs, clicked over to their Etsy shop and discovered a terrible typo — their banner slogan is “fun, fresh and mondern.” D’oh! I’m going to email them about it now so they can fix it.

    This may sound weird, but that photograph of vintage white dresses gave me the eerie feeling that one gets when one enters an empty old house with just a flashlight, on a cloudy night.

    Love the coasters and throw pillows, though. :-)
