Etsy Treasuries + Favorite Shops

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

I went looking for a particular vintage brass object the other day and of course one turns to Etsy in such situations. As always I hop over for one thing and end up spying dozens more charming finds, but then I discovered there’s a way to bookmark them there. Pinterest is fab but I discovered with an Etsy profile that you can create Treasuries of favorite items and then share them with the community. How long has this been around? A month? A year? Forever? Anyway, I love it!

Handmade, unique, vintage… it’s those one-of-a kind finds that personalize a space, give it a little quirk, make it feel collected over time and less one stop big box shop.

You can find all of that at Etsy, which is why I love to feature favorite artists and creatives in the Etsy Art I Heart series once a month. I was going to do a roundup of really cool home decor but got distracted curating various Treasuries and Favorite Shops of my own. I convinced myself it’s more efficient to categorize them that way. I created several lists including finds from amazing lighting to quirky things like cat pillows, meow!

You can also find over 50 of my favorite go to Etsy shops for pillow covers, gifts, art prints, etc. listed here. favorite shops

Enjoy the galleries and share your favorite Etsy shops you love too, I’m always on the hunt for new treasures…

Etsy Art I Heart: Ceramics

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Oh hello! We had such a great weekend! We finished up a fun DIY project (I’ll feature it next week, you’ll love it!) and yesterday we took a drive out to the coast for clam chowder and to watch sunset, one of our favorite family outings. We did some gardening too, everything is sprouting in the yard. Matt and I walk around outside in the evenings with a glass of wine and we talk to and about the plants, which ones are thriving, which ones need a little food or pruning while the kids run around like crazy.

All homes need something living inside but even if you don’t have a green thumb, low maintenance succulents or air plants will survive with little water and attention. This month’s Etsy artist feature is all about ceramics and pottery, these planters and chic decorative objects are handmade accessories that look lovely on a desktop, styled on a bookcase, or anywhere you envision unique original pieces, enjoy the roundup!

I love pottery with modern touches, like these bowls, jars and vessels at Red Raven Studios. (I bought the horseshoe).
