Etsy Favorite Fridays- February 20th

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I will most likely be glued to one of the Hunger Games books my sister let me borrow from her. I just finished the first book and can hardly wait to start the second. A lot of you who know me, know I love Etsy! I can pour through it for hours if I let myself. For a while I was showcasing artists every Friday that I loved. I stopped doing that some time last year since I was having a hard time getting the time to do the post. However, I miss sharing beautiful handmade items with you all, so I have decided to bring it back in a much smaller scale. I plan on sharing five of my favorite things from Etsy’s plethora of amazing artists that I just adore with you all every friday from now on. Here are my favorites this week:

Happy Friday everyone! I had wanted to get my new items into my shop before the Memorial Day weekend last week. I was a bit under the weather, so I just didn’t get to it. So I have been making up for lost time and have been listing a slew of new goodies in the shop this week. I have added a handful of new one of a kind tote bags made from vintage tablecloths. I have also added a bunch of vintage flour sack patchwork key chains. I absolutely LOVE vintage fabrics, and I love upcycling them into wonderful happy items! These fun totes are marvelous for summer! They make a great roomy every day bag, or even a market tote! The keychains I am really excited to offer in my shop now too! Vintage flour sack fabric is one of my absolute favorite things in the whole wide world! Not only are these sweet little keychains like carrying a sweet little piece of vintage happiness with you, they are also a great size to wear around your wrist or carry in your purse! To celebrate the new additions to my shop, I am running a special offer for free shipping on your entire order until June 9th. You can use code FREESHIPJUNE at checkout. You can check out the shop in my menu tab or by clicking Here.

I Heart Etsy Fridays- Melanie’s Menagerie

Happy Friday Everyone! We are busy little bees getting ready for the flea market this weekend, but I did want to pop in and share one of my new favorite Etsy artists with you all, Melanie’s Menagerie. Melanie Nord Monsees, the artist behind this adorable shop, not only curates a collection of kitschy vintage finds, but creates the most fantastic needle felted animals. All of her creatures are one of a kind. I love the sweetness and personality they all possess! They are so stinkin’ cute! I totally adore that Melanie pulls her inspiration from vintage figurines. As many of you know by now, vintage ceramic animals are my weakness. I am head over heels for all of Melanie’s hand-made goodies! Here are just a few of my favorite items from her shop:

I Heart Etsy Fridays- The Art of Peter Emmerich

A few weeks ago I was browsing through Etsy, and I let out a gasp. You know, one of those gasps that women do so well, that can either be from fear or extreme excitement. My husband refers to it as sucking all the air out of the room. In this case, I was crazy excited!I had somehow serendipitously come across a portrait of Coco Channel by Peter Emmerich, and when I entered his Etsy shop, I fell in love with every single piece there! It was a yes moment. So, today I am over the moon to share with you my newest favorite Etsy shop, The Art of Peter Emmerich! Peter is an amazing artist and illustrator! He has quite a fantastic resume, including design work for the Walt Disney Company. You can read more about Peter’s artsy accolades in his bio Here. His work is whimsical, and just so happy! Every piece will make you smile. The thing I love the most about Peter’s work is his mid-century style, vintage fashion references, and the quirkiness in his characters. He really gives so much personality to his art! His subject matter is also really awesome! There are illustrated portraits ranging from amazing old hollywood legends like Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball, to the ever fabulous Diana Ross and Ella Fitzgerald, to even modern favorites Adele and Harry Potter. I also love Peter’s story book characters! One of my favorites is an illustration of a circus bear that looks like it was inspired by one of my favorite vintage children’s books, which features learning your abc’s at the circus! They are all just wonderful! Here are a few of my absolute favorites:

Aren’t they all so adorable! I can’t decide on which one to get, I love them all! I know I will be getting Marcie one of Coco Channel for Christmas. She took a trip to Paris last year and the ladies at the Channel flagship shop liked her so much, they took her back and gave her a little tour of Coco’s studio. I was quite jealous. I know she’d get a kick out of the print of Madame Coco! To see more of Peter’s amazing work, visit his Etsy shop, The Art of Peter Emmerich, Here. You can also follow his awesome blog Here. I’ll be back next week with another lovely artist. Until then…
