Wishlist: Art From Etsy

Hello everyone! After pulling together my 14 favorite things from Etsy, I thought I’d do a little round-up of over 30 prints for you from some of my favorite Etsy sellers since many are looking for affordable gifts right now. Prints from artists and photographers are a very sweet thing to send, especially for friends who live far away because prints are flat and light so they’re easy to mail. I love receiving art as a gift, whether it ends up in a frame or on the inspiration wall behind my desk, I always make a place for it. The best part is, whenever I see it I think of the special person who gave it to me and that’s always so nice. Here are some current favorites from Etsy that you may like – enjoy!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit behind on Etsy Take Five Tuesday, I guess you can call it a Summer Pause because I’ve been very busy and unable to do them as regularly as before but in the Fall they will resume again on the regular weekly schedule each and every Tuesday but until October they’ll be a bit hit or miss as I have a lot of travel coming up and lectures to give. How are you doing today everyone? Are you good? I hope so. I have some lovely things to share with you from Etsy today, I hope that you enjoy my finds.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

First up, my friends Berit and Kerstin from Snug Studio in Hannover, Germany recently opened their shop doors on Etsy and I couldn’t be happier! I love visiting their little shop around the corner from me and enjoy their work so much. I think you’ll really love them, too.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Next is Yael Fran down in Argentina who has a billion things in her shop from Keds to stickers, coloring books, prints, iPhone holders… This lady has her designs being printed on everything and it’s so inspiring to see!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Now let’s peek in on the work of illustrator/designer Kaye Blegvad who was born in London but now based in New York. Her feather illustrations-as-garlands really caught my attention today. Aren’t these garlands so unique and pretty?

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

You simply can’t miss Villarreal Ceramics in Arizona – in fact, if I didn’t live so far away I’d place an order this second for some of her feather plates and cups. Beautiful things, I really enjoy this shop…

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

And finally let’s visit the work studio of Kelsey Oseid in Minneapolis, also known as Kelzuki, who draws the patterns found on state birds and turns them into state-themed prints. The colors are chosen based on the color of each bird. Very clever and a lovely housewarming gift, don’t you think?

Other great Etsy goodies that I found this week:

I hope that my Etsy picks for the week put a smile on your face. :) I’ll be back later with more to enjoy and a special interview and studio tour of a London-based surface pattern designer along with a special Parisian shop tour will come up soon too – perhaps later in the week, I’m still working on them for you. Prepare to be inspired!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Hey everyone, how are you today? I’m doing great, very busy at the moment but I always look forward to times when I can be on decor8 sharing my finds and interacting with you because it’s my escape from the chaos. :) Blogging is such therapy, isn’t it!? Today is Tuesday and as you know, it’s time for me to highlight five Etsy shops that I’m enjoying this week so let’s get started and see what talent awaits us over on Etsy today!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

First up, I’m mad for prize ribbons, badges and paper crafting so the Saratops shop had my attention the second I found Sara’s sweet little crafty heaven. I love her map ribbons and library book card notebooks and that she’s into recycling – she’s quite clever I think!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Arminho in Portugal has the best notebooks – I’d love to have a bunch of them for my office as I refer to travel size notebooks so often and carry them everywhere I go. Do you use notebooks too?

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

The next little shop keeper is Love, Maude and I really like her sweet hand-embroidered felted wool creations, especially her embroidery hoops-as-decor. So pretty and created so expertly – I appreciate her attention to finer details and her limited, sophisticated color palette.

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Illustrative watercolors from Gennebra in Portugal is another pretty find that I discovered this morning while browsing Etsy. Her focus on animals and soft pastels is quite sweet. Her animal paw art is my favorite – I’d love to frame them for a kid’s bedroom.

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Kirbee Lawler in Sydney is a graphic designer and illustrator who creates nice wooden brooches and art prints that you can frame and display with a feminine look and feel.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my round up, I’ll be back in a moment with a few more inspiring posts for your decorating pleasure… :)

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.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

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

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

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.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

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…
