Friday Finds: Etsy Corner

etsy finds

I know. The posts here have been few and far between these days. I apologize for the fact that blogging has fallen lower on my priority list. But if you are anything like me, you don’t really mind having one less item to read each day! Consider it a gift. You don’t want to read something slapped together in 15 minutes, any more than I want to offer out scraps. I’m working on some new posts that are taking some time. . . time to live and process the lessons God is teaching me.

But in the meantime, I have another Friday Finds: Etsy Edition!

I’m highlighting two shops today that have helped to add warmth and character to my very NEUTRAL kitchen.

1. Field Treasure Designs.

I’ve highlighted this great shop before, and not just because I’m friends with the owners. The products are unique, quality, and definitely personal. They have a great Instagram feed that shows the ins and outs of what they are making and why they feel called to create art.

Andrew and Brooke actually sent me these pallet pieces as a gift. I was so surprised and thrilled to finally have the perfect pieces for my tiny corner. My heart will always stay deep in Texas, but Arizona has my new roots. :) Head on over to the shop, Facebook page, or Instagram feed and pick yourself out something for your empty wall!

2. Be Small Studios

My friend Carey gave me this Abide print for my birthday last year and it has made such a sweet addition to the corner. My house is full of a lot of neutral colors, so any pops of brightness are a welcome surprise. Glance through the other work by Annie Barnett and you will be pleasantly surprised. I love the mission behind her work. She also has a website you can visit here!

I just received two more pieces of art for my birthday that might be making their way to this little corner. The signs are also from an Etsy shop, so stay tuned for next week’s shop recommendations.

Happy Friday, Friends!

Friday Finds: Etsy Edition

etsy finds

I so enjoy personal, handmade gifts. . . especially if I don’t have to be the one to make them. That’s where Etsy comes in. Without Etsy (an online handmade/creative store) my house might just be cream painted walls and some photos in frames. Slowly but surely the artwork from Etsy is adding personality to our space. I have a few different shops that I work with frequently, so I thought I would share the beautiful craftsmanship with you for the next few Fridays.

I’ve been planning on using Peter Rabbit as a jumping off point for a girl nursery for years. When I was really little my grandparents gave me a Wedgwood set of Peter Rabbit dishes from their months spent in England. I didn’t want giant decals on the wall, just a base for colors and a unifying theme. As you will see below, we ended up with soft blue walls, green bedding, and pale prints. My goal was crisp, clean, and feminine. I’m so pleased with the results.

I have to mention the bunting in the pic! With the help of my mother-in-law, sis-in-law, and the sewing machine and genes from my own mom – I made them! This was my first big sewing project since being in costume practicum in college. The basics came back after we finally figured out how to load the bobbin on my machine. I picked up the inspiration for this mobile of sorts from Pinterest. Here’s the blog post that ultimately gave me a direction for the project.

prints

The three prints you can see in the photos above are all from a fabulous little shop on Etsy: Printable Wisdom. I love that I found a native Texan who was so willing to work with our changes and ideas. She was super speedy, affordable, and talented. I highly recommend this shop!

My husband spied this quote and fell in love with it,
“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”– Emilie Buchwald.
We hunted through pages on Etsy trying to find a print of the quote that we liked, to no avail. So, we turned to Ashley at Printable Wisdom again and she custom created yet another design for us. We found another piece she had made with books and just went from there. D is so pleased with the result!

We finished off the room with a name print that she customized to our color and print needs.

There you go. Kudos to Ashley at Printable Wisdom. Now get yourself over to her shop!

Happy Friday!
