Etsy Finds

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing around Etsy and I am amazed at how many talented artists are on this site.  I thought I would share with you some of my favorite finds!

I fell in love with this Shabby Chic Paris tote.  It is so romantic with its hand-ruffled rose pin and ruffled edging. 




This Paris script pillow cover caught my eye too!  Chocolate brown script on natural linen - perfect for the master bedroom.  Beautifully hand sewn (something I've never been able to do). 



As soon as it arrived in the mail, I jetted off to Jo-Ann's for a pillow form and found them on sale at 50% off.  I even stopped for an ice cream on the way home.  They had my favorite flavor ... cotton candy - so yummy!

The antique chair was refinished by my parents and passed down to me.  A few years ago I re-upholstered the seat.  To this day it still sits next to my bedside table.

So you see it was a great day on Etsy!  Have you found anything wonderful lately?  I'm linking with the following parties:

French Inspiration Thursday @ The French Cupboard

Show and Tell Friday @ My Romantic Home

Hi Donna

Thanks for visiting my little blog project and leaving such a nice comment on the privacy screen.

I'm loving all the French typography stuff out there. I'm working on mastering the technique but am not really happy with the results yet.

I love the pillow. I too am a fan of French country, but I just don't seem to be able to pull it off in my home decor. You however have a great eye for design. Thanks for sharing.

My problem is always finding too much on Etsy-I go there much more than Ebay now. I love that tote you bought with the melted rose! I made one of those melted roses a few weeks ago. It was a very popular post. Everyone loves them I guess--they are so pretty but a lot of work (not to mention burnt fingers). Have a great weekend!
