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…

2014 Calendars by Etsy Artists

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

I’m continuing the monthly series focused on Etsy artists today, but instead of prints or paintings like in the past, this month the spotlight is on calendars, just in time for 2014! I too ordered a small desk calendar from one of the many illustrators (link at the very bottom).

Many of these are available pre-printed to be shipped but several are also available as a printable PDF which makes a great last minute gift idea for friends, teachers, or co-workers! Here’s this month’s roundup of highlighted artists and their creative calendars, perhaps you’ll spy one you love.
