Etsy Finds Friday!

We both love finding inspiration and unique treasures on Etsy, so once a month or so we’ll be sharing round-ups of some of our favorite Etsy items and sellers so you can see them too.  Thanks for joining us!

From Mera:

I’m nuts for  KinskaShop’s ceramics.  The simple bold graphics and sweet shapes really do it for me:

This little Bipolar cache pot has been in my Etsy cart for about a month now, and I think I’m ready to pull the trigger.  Wouldn’t this be so great atop an antique dresser or hutch like Katie’s with some other potted friends and treasures?

I’ve been trying to craft a pendant light for the breakfast nook recently, and so far what I’ve learned is that it is harder than I thought it would be.  I haven’t given up entirely, but I have taken to casually looking around the internet in case the perfect pendant pops up. This gorgeousness may convince me to direct my DIY energies elsewhere:

From Katie:

In Dan-Ah Kim’s brief Etsy bio she writes:   My personal work explores stories, from battles with the supernatural to those special mundane moments with one’s cat.

Sounds good to me, and this print, titled ‘When the World Sleeps,’really speaks to my winsome, traveling heart.  I love the mix of media, and it makes me immediately start filling in a narrative to go with this scene.

The Etsy shop Gypsya sells handwoven rugs and beautiful textiles.  I want pretty much everything in their shop, but if pressed to pick out a couple of favorites I’d choose this tablecloth/bedspread and this emerald green rug:

What do you think?  Any must-haves from our picks, or any Etsy shops you think we should check out?  Mera will be back on Monday with a post about her experience with dyeing leather – definitely come back and check it out.  Have a wonderful weekend!

 

Etsy Finds Friday!

Hallelujah It’s Friday (HIF)!  The weekend stretches before us and we’re both up to our eyeballs in house projects.  As fun as spackling holes and painting ceilings is, sometimes it’s a nice boost to look for inspiration – to dream of the day when a room is complete enough to hang new art in, put down a rug, or set out a pretty vase of flowers.

We both love finding inspiration and unique treasures on Etsy, so we thought we’d round up a few of our favorite Etsy items and sellers so you can see them too.  Thanks for joining us!

From Katie:

I love the quirky art of Etsy seller Yelena Bryksenkova.  I’m especially drawn to her magical prints of interiors; detail-rich rooms I’d love to visit that are filled with gorgeous patterns, cozy scenes and the occasional sleeping cat.

I also love these petite indigo watercolors by Renee Anne.  They’re sweet and simple and might be just the little monochrome moment my blue walls need.

From Mera:

I love the creepy glamor of this print by Julienne Jattiot.  I don’t read a word of German, but my guess is that this did not end well for Leda (and I apologize if this actually says something totally heinous and offensive; I know ignorance is no defense but my defense is ignorance).

It’s pretty hard for me to resist an irreverent cross stitch, and plus my daughter’s initials are OG so doesn’t that make me the O OG?  Yeah, it does feel good.

I actually own an articulated paper horse from artist Emma Kidd’s Hinged Beasts series and I would love to have a herd.  The one I have is magical and dreamy, with such a cool winged-fantasy paper-doll feel but with all grown-up artistry.  I wish this appaloosa would trot right up to my door.

Have a terrific weekend! Check back in on Monday for the next stage of Katie’s living room redo!
