Hello friends! I’m back from Amsterdam so you know what that means… lots of great things to show and tell which I’ll get to shortly (tonight or perhaps tomorrow). But first, I cannot let Tuesday go by without the weekly Etsy Take Five Tuesday. Enjoy!
Bostonian Jill Rosenwald recently notified me that she has a? new shop on Etsy where her ceramic creations are sold, ranging from plates to bowls and vases. Fantastic patterns and colorways… really great.
Pirilampo Riscado is based in Portugal and is a-m-a-z-i-n-g-l-y talented… gifted really. I cannot take my eyes off of her intricately woven handcrafted treasures to wear or display. This jewelry is not only breathtaking but made with heart, you can feel it as you look over her goods in her Etsy shop. I keep finding myself back on her Flickr “Necklace” set just to drool. When I see work like this I’m reminded of the sheer talent that exists in this world and how privileged we are to be online with continual exposure to it all without having to jump on an airplane.
Marta is a one-girl shop in Barcelona where her thoughtfully made things are sold under the name Emedemarta. Wood, linen, and cotton are a few of her favorite things along with deer and mushrooms (still popular motifs amongst indie designers, especially here in Europe).
Pardon My Vintage (cute name) is a shop filled with new-to-you finds curated with love and exceptional taste. Some of my personal faves include the retro pear canister, the folksy recipe tin, Rorstrand Fenix cup and saucer, and the vintage Heath mugs. Best part, she’ll ship worldwide! You can keep up with the latest Pardon My Vintage finds also via her Flickr account.
Bubbo-Tubbo is a sweet shop you’re certain to adore as much as I do. Originally from Russia now living in America, I stumbled upon Natasha Mileshina and her illustrations just this morning by roaming Flickr and was quite pleased that I took the time to wander… her drawings are pretty special! I’ve already decided to place an order for a few of her prints to put in my hallway. I can’t help myself!

I’m packed and ready to walk over to the main station to catch my train to Amsterdam. I can’t wait! I have a good book to keep me occupied for the 4 hour journey, and then I’ll be meeting up with Danielle to hit a few shops before joining the group at 8 p.m. over at De Kroon (details here in case you’d like to join us).
I’ll be in Am’dam for the next 3 days, so I won’t be blogging again here until Tuesday… You can find me over at Real Simple later today with my Top Ten Etsy Stores for the month of September and also on Monday where I’ve prepared a post about British design firm ISAK and their new collection due to show in a few weeks at Top Drawer in London.
When I’m back expect photos and all the highlights from my mini adventure. :) I can’t wait to meet up with everyone tonight, bloggers and blog readers all together at the same table — how fun!
See you again on Tuesday… Happy weekend!
