Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Hello friends! It’s time for me to present this week’s picks from Etsy… no rhyme or reason, just some things that are quirky and caught my eye that may tickle your fancy too. I’m not spotlighting five sellers this week, in fact nothing has much to do with “five” at all but if you don’t tell I won’t. :) Enjoy!

A Place For Twiggs Photography

Oh yes, what a relaxing day here on decor8 with more dreamy photography and faded pastels to enjoy… this time from A Place For Twiggs, a photography shop on Etsy based in Portugal with work that can lead you to serious daydreams and the sounds of something really laid back like Ayo music, she is a fabulous Nigerian-German singer-songwriter. Her music goes beautifully with these images. Why not listen to this song while looking at these photos below?

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Hello friends, it’s Tuesday and time for my Etsy picks for the week. Yesterday, I had a phone interview with Good Housekeeping since they wanted to talk to me about my upcoming book and were curious as to how I find so many good shops on Etsy for this column each week (honored!). I was very flattered that the writer follows this column and knowing that inspired me to keep it going for 2011 as I toyed with the idea of discontinuing it. You can look for me in the May issue of Good Housekeeping, where I’ll share some of my favorite Etsy shops and others online that specialize in vintage finds for the home. Now onto my picks for the week. I hope that you like them!
