Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Yes, it is Wednesday and my dear friends I am late again with my Etsy picks for the week. What is my problem, right!? Truth is, these round ups take hours and I often feel like I’m running out of time with the many projects that I’m involved in both on and offline lately (especially offline). I’m currently styling a quilting book for a Berlin-based author originally from England, working on the proposal for my next book, planning my US book tour (yeah!), revamping the template for decor8 and preparing a new website for Blogging Your Way, and preparing for the big Meet The Blogger event and book signing in Amsterdam on June 25th, planning a 10 year anniversary getaway with my husband, working on some writing projects, answering lots of emails, writing on Real Simple, Haus Maus, and decor8 and… I’m soon traveling up to Hamburg as I was hired as a consultant for one of Germany’s top magazines to teach my Blogging Your Way e-course in-person before their staff in just a few weeks! I’m writing everything out and organizing my ideas — I can’t wait to share all that I’ve learned about blogging with this magazine and look forward to it very much as it’s my first official “job” in Germany since I relocated here. Yay!

Okay so enough about me and what I’m up to — how are you? Are you ready for some Etsy stores to enjoy for this week? Great, me too! Let’s see who I found this week, shall we?

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Everything from Every Eskimo melts my heart, especially these vintage chunky XO rubber stamps – fun! I love her handmade animals too.

More vintage goodness, this time from Sadie Olive – books, antlers, vintage photographs, everything and anything all curated expertly.

I’m loving House of Chintz! Okay, some of you may question my taste on this one but I’m seriously mad about these quirky lampshades designed by Kate Boyce, a surface pattern designer in England. To me, they look very Liberty London – I can picture them being sold there among all of their other quirky interiors items and furnishings.

How fun is Draw City? I love that you can even request custom illustrations of your favorite things. These are such cute prints, the tea tin is my favorite.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Lovely illustrated goodies in gorgeous colors from Jessica Swift, formerly the Jessica Gonacha shop but she got married (congrats!) and changed her name. I think her goal and intention kit is brilliant, I have to buy one and use it!

Did you enjoy today’s picks!? Hope so! See you in a moment with more things to inspire you today…

    Holly, you’re a super woman. I don’t know how you manage to do all these things you listed. I think you don’t sleep at all. :P I can see your round ups take hours. Your collages are always beautiful and makes me feel like I’m looking at a magazine. Thank you for your time. I love them all. Jessica Swift Shop is very cute!! Sadie Olive reminded me of “Stylizimo”. I feel like it’s her style. Sweet! I wish I could go to the Meet The Blogger event. How exciting about your planning for 10 year anniversary! Congratulations! Kaho

    Oh my goodness! You are one busy woman…but if it’s what you LOVE to do…then you must be in heaven, right? :)

    I have loved Sadie Olive for some time now, and truly I don’t think there is a questionable one in the bunch here today! I’m also loving those awesome lampshades, and the tea tin print is so sweet.

    Good luck with all the goals and intentions…I think I need one too! :)

    @Brigitte – Ah thanks honey! No, I’m okay — I get to it each week, just often on Wednesday morning as Tuesdays often escape me. But they come! They come! :)

    Just an idea for this busy season in your life . . . give etsyfive a rest for a few months or just do it once a month for awhile.

    Lookin out for you, Holly :)


    ps. My adult daughters were here for Easter . . . I had to check their bags before they left, to make sure my copy of Decorate wasn’t in there . . . they loved the book, too.

    I love Jessica Swift. Her designs are so inspiring! I just bought a scrap pack from her about a month ago and took this composition notebook up about 10 notches:

    Oh my, oh my…..

    Can I just say a quick thankyou for including the picture of that gorgeous alarm clock from Sadie Olive? I couldn’t help myself – I bought it straight away.

    I’m working on a series of paintings that feature a girl who is obsessed with time/pocketwatches/clocks, and it seems the obsession is rubbing off on me!

    And since you get over 1000 results when you plug “alarm clock” into the vintage search on etsy, some help finding the perfect one is certainly appreciated. I’m excited to see it. It will make for a gorgeous prop in my paintings. Thanks again! And thanks to Sadie Olive too :)
