Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Welcome to Etsy Take Five Tuesday, though it’s a day late but hey, I’m still posting it because we all love a little etsy don’t we!?! Today I thought I’d round up some colorful things for you from a bunch of sellers because I simply didn’t feel like rounding up five sellers as I kept finding more and more favorites. I decided to simply share oodles of things that are on my radar this week. Today you’ll find everything from fabric squares and ribbons for crafting to paintings and neck ties! Weeee! Okay, here we go…


When it comes to Pigeon Toe Ceramics all I have to say is, “I’ll have one of everything please.” Isn’t this shop just too much amazingness !?! Love it.


1| Liberty print neck tie by This Humble Abode 2|set of 6 feather butterflies by Caramelos 3| Tea cozy by Gloaming Designs 4| original portrait by Cathy Cullis 5| white sparkle ribbon by Caramelos 6| patchwork squares by Liberty Charms.


Intricate hand stitched things from Tease Made had my attention the second I discovered this pretty shop today. So many sweet things!


Colorful, quirky art (prints and originals) by Jennifer Davis. I collect her work and have many paintings to date… I love her unusual characters and gorgeous colors.


I know, wild right!? These crazy chairs are dressed to thrill from a Thai designer living and working in Istanbul, Turkey. Her shop is called Name Design Studio and it is filled with all kinds of colorful, patchwork-y furniture.


1| Tea towel by Skinny Laminx 2| Vintage music paper on a letter B brooch by ismay 3| postage stamp cufflinks also from ismay 4| Brighton Promenade embroidered art by Gillian Bates 5| Flora II necklace from Joanna Rutter 6| wrapping paper by PataPri.

Spot anything that you love!?

    Wowsa, I love the intricate hand stitching of the Tease Made beauties. Just clicked over to her shop and I am so in love with one of her pendants. Am trying to justify buying it. Mother’s Day present for myself perhaps? Thanks for sharing!

    I find it very strange that prior to reading this post I <3 the Pigeon toe ceramic test tube vases under my Etsy account. I didn't see those bold napkins, so I'm off to view (maybe buy) :)

    Very interesting and eye appealing "Etsy Take Five".

    Have a great day Holly and readers!

    I just lost my mind over at Pigeon Toe. They have like 5 items that I must have immediately. And by immediately I mean when I can afford them.

    I love the music brooch and postage stamp cufflinks from ismay. What’s got me excited enough to venture a comment is I only just found you last week via my sister at, where she has just posted about decoupage! Talk about serendipity. (I’ve commented there re your post – and my apologies if I’m not linking where I ought, amateur that I am.) Such beautiful and inspiring collections you have here, thank you!
