Today you’ll find a slight red and blue focus, a little nautical and a little Scandinavian… and some very sweet scratch “save the date” cards and giant speech bubbles on a stick, too! Today is all about color, color, color and some cheeky fun.
Goldy Locks is a Danish-American designer who designs and makes party crafts by hand. She has a background in magazine publishing in the U.S. and recently relocated to Copenhagen to explore her Danish roots. Her work is available via downloadable PDF files in her etsy shop — small toppers for cupcakes or larger ones to hold in a photo, Goldy Locks is fun and fresh!
Suzanne Nicoll is an artist in Connecticut who runs a small design studio along with her husband. I imagine these mermaid prints would be so sweet in a child’s room, don’t you? Especially with bedding in sea tones and a sunny yellow ceramic lamp on the bedside table. Can you see that too?
Samantha French is currently focused on painting swimmers both above and underwater. I can see these in a crisp blue, black and white bathroom with a black beaded chandelier. You can view more of her beautiful work here on her website.
Daniel and Valeria from the vintage shop Hindsvik live in a small town in Canada where they share their love of vintage wares through their sweet etsy shop. New items added weekly!
Scratch and save the date? Is this not the cutest idea in the world? Artist Leslie Hamer in Chicago is brilliant. See more in her shop, Unless Someone Like You

Good morning! I hope that you had a very nice holiday weekend! What did you do? Anything fun? I hope that you enjoyed yourself and that you are ready for another week of inspiration and ideas to inspire you. Let’s get started, shall we? First I’d like to share product shots that Austin-based photographer Paige Newton sent to me this morning since she knows I’m a Leah Duncan fan and so she thought I’d enjoy the recent shoot she had with Leah’s products.
I really like the outdoor setting and the naturalness of it all – as well as the lighting, and of course the gorgeous stationery and tea towels. Leah is something special, I can see her going very far!
Thank you Paige for sharing these photos with us and if you’d like to shop for Leah’s handmade prints, tea towels, stationery and more then here is her shop link just for you. :) I love (and want!) the window print. It’s perfection, right!?
I’ll be back with Etsy Take Five Tuesday — See you soon!

My pink vintage wallpaper tote arrived today and I just love it. Made by Draw Flowers, it’s perfect for storing things in the kitchen. I love all of her handmade items made from vintage retro wallpaper patterns – fun stuff!
Do you have any storage needs? If you do, don’t miss my handmade storage bin round up here where you are bound to find many great ones made mostly from fabric – I featured 16 total!
