Etsy Art I Heart: Typography & Quotes

February 3rd, 2014

Greetings friends! We had quite a busy weekend with family coming to stay for a memorial service for Matt’s grandmother and then the Superbowl yesterday, no doubt you were all as disappointed as we were with the game (snooze) but I LOVED Bruno Mars during the halftime show, he is so talented!

Don’t you think Downton Abbey is finally getting better this season? I watched last night’s episode and between Rose’s shenanigans and Alfred’s new opportunity and Mary’s suspicions and Edith’s predicament, I can’t wait to see what happens next. The banter between Isobel and the Dowager is so well done don’t you think? I have to rewind it each time they engage each other to hear it again. What do you think of the season so far? (No spoilers!)  

But back to business, I was browsing Etsy again for a few gifts and inspirational quotes and stumbled across several more artists that specialize in typography (this one strikes a chord with me) so I thought I’d feature some favorites today. Lovers of poetry, words, scripture, and inspirational sayings will appreciate these shops!   

Find beautiful poetry and frame worthy lyrics at Riverway Studios.

Hello all! It’s been a long week, I’ve been busy with a lot of non blog worthy things and it’s kept me away but as a result Matt and I have decided to turn a regular weekend into a three day staycation to take advantage of some down time, so I’m sharing the Best of the Blogosphere links early. Enjoy this roundup of inspiring projects and ideas gathered around the web in our regular series !

Not to be missed is this nursery for little Wren by Shea McGee, the classic touches are so pretty! (see Jan 9th blog entry).
