Etsy Me: April (Early)

Hi, my name is Amanda and I’m an Etsy addict.  What can I say?  We have an entire basement to decorate, on a budget.  That budget being as cheap as possible.  So, back to Etsy where I found a few more pretties.  You’ve already seen some of my recent Etsy purchases.  This time, I picked up a Cascading flower wall art from Dashing Etc. which can be customized with various felt colors.  I chose something simple and classic, charcoal grey with white flowers. 

A permanent home has yet to be found for this beauty, but it is living it up in the ugly step child basement bedroomIf When we finally get our act together and decorate the basement bedrooms, this will fit right in with the yellow, charcoal grey and white color scheme I have planned.

For the other basement bedroom, I turned to Etsy seller Jamie Mari.  Jamie creates one of a kind paintings.  I was instantly smitten when I saw this set of three umbrellas.   As usual, I wanted something custom, so I asked Jamie if she could accommodate my order.  Luckily for me, she could, and did!  Within a week, I had an original 5 inch square fuchsia umbrella painting. 

Again, a permanent home hasn’t been decided, but it will definitely stay in the basement bedroom.  The frame is still to be determined, too.  I think a little umbrella painting would be sweet in a nursery next to a set of ‘You Are My Sunshine’ prints, like these by The Ink Society

To spruce up our mini hall to the laundry room, I ordered a Paris’ Notre Dame Rose Window print (in charcoal) from Little Brown Pen.  At 12 inches square, printed on a beautifully textured paper, I think $28.00 is a great price and of great quality.  After popping the print in a 20 inch square IKEA Ribba frame, our hall is no longer bare!

Oddly enough, the circle encased by a square print design is very similar to our new washer and dryer.  How’s that for design repetition?

Finally, to add something not-too-personal (no one wants to look at family photos while taking care of business) to the basement bathroom walls, I added an It’s a Funny Thing About Life print by The Living Room Floor

Like the Notre Dame print, the quality and size makes this print a steal at only $14.00!  Stephanie also has other fantastic quote prints, like this Beer is Proof print, which is prefect for any man cave, or even the kitchen.

Of course, these pieces aren’t the only Etsy purchases I’ve made.  Last week, I teased you with this, mentioning that I scoured Etsy to find the perfect prints to round out my grouping of bird, feather or tree art.  I have a few finishing touches before the final reveal, so you’ll just have to wait.

 Have you made any art purchases recently?  Do you have mostly bare walls to fill?  I have a few DIY paintings in my future, are you planning a DIY art piece?

Please note:  We were not compensated for this post, we simply love the items we’ve purchased from these shops and want to share with you!

  1. Thanks to one of your last etsy art roundups, I ordered 3 map watercolours from Poppy and Pincecone (Italy, England & France). They just arrived yesterday & they are gorgeous!
    Thanks Amanda for featuring it….now I found the perfect addition to my living room 🙂
    (the new prints hang out near the art you created for me!)

    1. Hi Andrea, Love Poppy and Pinecone! So glad that you did, too! It sounds like your art wall is coming together.

      Jenny, your art sounds great! Do you still have it? It would be fun to hang them side by side, or in a grouping of other similar items.

  2. Oh my goodness, I am in love with the Notre Dame Rose window print. I drew a picture of it by hand for a world history project (got an A++ on it, lol). It looks stunning in charcoal!
