Awesome Recent Etsy Finds #5

I’ll start off with some BIG items!

First off is this wood slab table. I want to make a table sort of like this some day. (Note: My dad made the tables I grew up eating on! My brother still uses them, dents from years ago and all)

This couch makes quite a statement, doesn’t it? The purple and the details… lovely!

Now some smaller items..

This shop really figured out how to make some awesome journals. This one is so detailed.

Watercolor world map in cool colors. WANT!

Needle felted luna moth! She did a great job.

Amethyst crystal soap has been interesting to me for a long time. I would love to try and make some but it looks complicated!

Awesome Recent Etsy Finds #4 : Clothing

Summer is coming up and this swimsuit is amazing. I have been wanting to make one for a long time – I already have awesome teal colored swimsuit material – but I’m a bit scared to mess it up while experimenting with the SS stitch to do stretchy stuff. Wish I could order one of these. This seller makes a lot of items I really like!

Rawr! A fierce wolf? Awesome.

This shop feels so cohesive. Her style rocks! So many awesome things… this one looks so fun for around the 4th of July.

Kaylim never ceases to amaze me.. this looks so hip, unique and comfortable. I’ve been following Kaylim for at least a year now. It’s really fun to see designers grow and become even better than they were not long ago!
dress

Funky! It makes me want to put on mud boots (like the model) and feed chickens in it. I think I will try my hand at making a ‘scrap dress’ soon. Inspired!

I don’t find myself in shorts often at all, I much prefer skirts, but wow! These are worth a look. “Galaxy” stuff is really popular right now because I’ve seen it all over on boots and dresses too.

My style is it’s own animal I think.
In some posts-to-come I will open up my own closet..

Awesome Recent Etsy Finds #3

One should not underestimate the importance of good spices and the knowledge to use them! This kit is on my wish list for sure and would be a great gift for any chef… even if you think they ‘have it all’ – I bet they wouldn’t mind trying out something new or receiving more of a favorite! Do you know what Tabil is?? Lime Fresco Salt? Sounds exciting ^_^

This scarf sold already, of course, but.. WOW…. This lady really knows what she is doing and comes out with so many amazing scarves! This one just particularly blows my mind!

These make my toes wiggle, wishing they were mine!
Rose Felt Shoes

The enormous size and colors immediately drew me in. I always pack too much when I’m going on a small trip – “.. what if I get dirty in this, what if I want to work on that project?..” – and this bag looks like it could hold it all. Then look at that strap! Sturdy and with a leather feather detail hanging down. Wow. And a lot of people still don’t use Etsy to buy beautiful handmade items, umm, why??
Travel Bag
I would totally snuggle up to it, too.

When I was young, ~ 10 years old, I got my first guinea pig — “Squeeky”! I loved him so much and have had guinea pigs since and have overall always had a soft spot for these little “squeaking monkey rats”. So when I found LalisLittleWorldOn‘s shop on Etsy I instantly fell in love! I wish I did THIS with my guinea pig.

Not just one cool product (prints) but TWO! Lavender sachets!

I also learned about the existance of narwhals this week. They are whales with HORNS like UNICORNS! It lead me to find this necklace that I think is super cute to end this episode of recent favorites 😉

My Favorite Vintage Find of 2011

Vintage Cannon Royal Family Floral Sheet Set!
Vintage Cannon Royal Family Floral Sheet
I’m so in love with this sheet set that I got at a garage sale during the summer of 2011 while I was in Minnesota. It was a full standard sized set – fitted sheet, top sheet and 2 standard pillow cases in PERFECT condition. I can’t use the sheets right now but I use the two pillow cases on my feather pillows (which I also found at an estate sale during summer 2011, 2nd best find of the year!) all the time! I feel comforted every time I get in bed and see this print. When my aunt saw them she said, “I think my dad, your grandpa, had the exact same set.”! What could top loving the print, loving the feel of the fabric, and the possible family connection?? I paid a dollar for all! *fist pump*

I messed with the colors a bit and put this as my desktop background for the time being. You could too if you felt inclined..

Next time you pass that GARAGE SALE sign on the side of the road during the summertime, just think of all of the wonderful items you could be missing out on that aren’t even available anywhere in stores. I can’t find this exact Cannon sheet set anywhere for sale online right now either!

Awesome Recent Etsy Favorites #2

Tea Art Print
The painted over collage style is great, isn’t it? Also the colors look so vibrant and the mood so inspirational. I love tea so choosing this print specifically to feature was a no brainer but I really enjoy a lot of this artist’s prints!

Spoon Necklace
Their description of the item is just awesome… mounds of pudding! Yes! I find myself in need of a spoon on the go quite often and it looks nice too.

Felt Flower
The copper and turquoise colors are so stunning together aren’t they…. I’ m inspired by this a lot!

Lightning Bolt Necklace
Another necklace! I don’t even wear jewelry often. I would love to have this one in my collection though.

There are so many beautiful things on Etsy. I spend many hours a week browsing! Great entertainment.
I enjoy Regretsy too… oh boy! I want something of mine to get on there some day, but in a good way!
