Etsy Favs: September

As promised this morning, we’re back with our Etsy favs.

Beautiful art doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.  Just look at the Abstract Ikat paintings by Chris Loves Julia, ready for framing.

If you know a bicycle enthusiast, this Iron Bicycle Decor from Bacon Square Farm is perfect.  And, the holidays will be here before you know it.

Monograms are a quick and easy way to personalize a space.  The T2 Typographic print at Nicole AP is one of many designs.

Yellow and gray are a classic color combo.  Bright yellow fields off set by a dark, gloomy sky in this Modern Neon Landscape by Lucy Snowe Photography is simply stunning.

Herringbone makes me weak in the knees.  Why would this Herringbone Patterned Bowl from E Benotti be any different?  Ha-ta!

This Traditional Floral Fat Quarter from Stefanie XU reminds me of snowflakes and the approach of winter.

Smile all through 2013 with this Mod Pattern Mini Calendar at Monkey Mind Design.

Neon is still going strong.  Add a splash with this Neon Waves Notebook by Les Miniboux.

I know I already shared this print this morning, but Always be Kind print at Scissors, Paper, Mouse is just pretty.  I’m a sucker for the chalkboard looking background.

Do you have a favorite?  Or maybe something I didn’t mention?

This Just In

Ever since I unveiled my arrow stenciled pillow cover, I’ve gotten requests to add something like it to the shop.

Over the weekend, I gave you a peek at the four newest members of our Etsy shop.

Today, I’m proud to reveal a new line of pillow covers for your abode.  Meet the new crew, currently available in teal, gray, mustard, and olive.

Let’s get to know them better, shall we?  Each pillow is made from a linen/cotton blend for the luxurious linen look with the ease of cotton.

At 18 inches square, these pillows are the perfect size for a chair, couch, or bed.  And finding pillow inserts is easy because this is a standard size.

All designs are hand stenciled, one small section at a time, making each pillow unique.  Of course, that also means there are small imperfections or areas where the paint seeped under, but that all adds to the charm of a hand made item.

Envelope closures at the back make stuffing and removing the insert easy when it’s time for a wash.  Speaking of washing, linen is actually easy to care for.  Just turn the pillow cover inside out.  Machine wash on a cool, gentle setting with like colors.  Dry on low setting.  Iron if necessary, keeping cover inside out.

Currently, we have four colors ready for purchase, as well as two different sized prints.  Choose the small print for a patterned look, or the large print for a bolder, graphic look.  Like what you see?  Head over to get one for yourself before we sell out.  Like the idea, but need something a little different?  Send an email to with your color, size, and pattern size preference and we’ll discuss the possibilities.

So, what do you think of the new additions?  Depending on how these are received, I’m excited to add a few more options to the shop and take on custom requests.  What color(s) would you like to see?  Perhaps a different size?  Or a different material?  Share your thoughts to help expand this line, please!
