I have a strange obsession with Etsy, and check it like its Pinterest. I love that is a makers community full of beautiful, random things. I love that it has introduced me to new sources for home goods, jewelry and clothing (though I’ve never bought clothing off of Etsy, I have considered it).
Here are five of my favorite things to shop for on Etsy and some of my recent finds:
All the art! I told my mother-in-law recently that I have a soft spot for watercolors of sad, naked, chubby ladies. I love them. They make me feel things.
This print is called ‘Married to the Sea‘ and it reminds me of the Miranda (Tempest) painting all theatre teachers were required to have framed in their classroom in the early 2000’s. This lady is not chubby, but she checks all of the other boxes, and I LOVE HER.
Oversized scripture signs! I am highly visual and a words person, so the words on art trend has been good to me. I love these ginormous wood signs, but since I live in an apartment with essentially plaster walls (the only place we can drill is our bedroom), I am putting off pulling the trigger on one of these beauties until we move into a house (or an apartment with more forgiving walls).
Option 2 (Thought I can’t look at the word ‘brethren’ without thinking of She’s the Man… high five if you can name that quote)
HAIR BOWS. If Will and I ever have a little girl, we will be poor in dollars but RICH IN HAIR BOWS. I am obsessed with them and want one, possibly two for every day of the week for my hypothetical little lady.
Random kitchy things you never even knew existed, but once you know they exist, have to have because they are so adorable.
How beepin’ cute are these spice labels!? I just reorganized all my spices into little matching containers and got a little too
scared cheap to spent the $14+ to get these customized for my specific spice needs… but now I wish I had. Maybe that will be round two of spice organization.
All the pillows!
It’s on sale, y’all. I’ve been loving the recent gingham trend, and I actually already have a shirt that almost exactly matches this pillow… which could either be a good or bad thing, depending on how you want to look at it.
I also think this one is particularly lovely.
Happy Friday, all!
