These handmade items from Dutch Etsy seller, Stiksel, are so pure and lovely. I thought you might like to see them and visit her store today.

I know I’ve been showing you a lot of prints lately, it’s just that etsy is exploding with prints lately, seems everyone is selling fantastic prints and you know what, good for them because that means there’s more for us, enough to satisfy all tastes.
Margarita Barry from Colored Gurl sent over news of her new Etsy store, Shades of True, where she will offer soon offer a wide range of original paintings and prints. For now, she only has a few things up, but I thought a little decor8 lovin’ may help her start her new business. It’s so encouraging to see someone venture out into the unknown and start a small etsy business. Constantly making progress is so important in life, don’t you think? And Margarita is doing just that, which makes me very proud of her and all the other newbies rising up and joining the Etsy ranks. Go indie!
And congrats, Ms. Barry!

How cute and sweet for Spring are these new planters from J Schatz? I think, outside of their hanging bird “egg” feeders, this is my other fave product from J Schatz. Jim sent these over today and I just had to blog them because I want one in every color to hang at different lengths on my tiny patio.
I love the yellow and blue best, but would prefer using them indoors so I can enjoy them more often. They’d be so pretty with ivy, don’t you think? No two are alike, these are available in 8 hand-carved ceramic earthenware “eggs” in glossy color combinations. $85.- USD each.
Thanks for the tip, Jim!

I’m so happy for both Nicole and Jason who just relaunched their brand and website today, Freshly Blended Press! Congratulations!
Everything in the FB store is handmade, from her beautiful wallpaper journals to all the other books she creates. Show a little support for an indie artist today and give Freshly Blended Press some love by spreading the word on your own blog and browsing their beautiful new website. Great work, Lecht duo!
Psst: These books are a great place to start your art journal or to organize your design finds…

decor8 reader Wyoming Q. is headed to Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende in July and needs our help. I’ve not yet visited that part of Mexico, but I figure with so many globe trotters out there, someone may have some light to shed on the subject of SHOPPING. :) If you have any tips or ideas please comment below. (Geninne, are you out there?)
Wyoming: Off the top of my head, I can direct you to Jane magazine, they pulled together a mini guide, and you can also check out Lucky magazine because they covered Mexico City too. Maybe that will get you started…
