Etsy Thursday

ETSY THURSDAY

Welcome to another installment of Etsy Thursday! We were down one post yesterday due to… life. We write posts as things happen around the house, and for the past few days, all that’s been going on around here was a whole lot of nothing. Stupid me pulled (very badly) not one, but two, muscles and ended up spending yesterday in bed and highly medicated. The medicine bottle says, “Do not operate heavy machinery,” and with the massive amount of drowsiness it gave me, maybe they should have listed computers, too. While I was out of commission, Greg was busy juggling work, Bentley and taking care of me, hence the mystery of the missing Wednesday post. But that’s enough of the mundane stuff – let’s get on to the best of the best on Etsy!

These New York Letterpress Coasters from Moontree Press first caught my eye because of the cool color combo. I love the gray with the yellow, green, orange, and teal-ish blue. These would be great for a New York-themed party (maybe a bon voyage party for a friend that’s moving to the Big Apple). These would even make a great art piece! Just frame one in a small shadowbox frame on a solid mat for a simple piece of art that makes a statement.

By now, most of you know I’m a total font geek! It should come at no surprise, then, that as soon as I saw these these Vintage Wood Type Letters from Monki VintageΒ I absolutely fell in love. A must-have for any fellow font fanatic.

I’m obsessed with graphic patterns, and sometimes it’s hard to find pillows with graphic patterns in “big box” home decor stores. Luckily, Etsy is a great place to find them! One of my favorite Etsy shops to scout out graphic pillows is Willa Skye. Ikat, chevron, lattice, zebra, graphic florals… they have it all!

I’ve mentioned a few times that I keep little notebooks in the top drawer of my desk for those spur of the moment ideas and barnstorming sessions. In light of that, I’m loving this Dragon Scales Notebook Jotter by Wit & Whistle. It’s small enough to keep in your purse or tuck away in your desk drawer. And, most importantly, it’s so cute!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this installment of Etsy Thursday. We’re going to be resuming regularly scheduled programming tomorrow, so we’ll be posting a brand new post in the morning! Stay tuned!

    Loved the Los Angeles print you pinned on Pinterest so much that I bought the Philly one! My brother works in one of the buildings in the skyline, and his family lives in the burbs. Planning to frame it for a very custom Christmas present for their home! Thanks for pointing me in albiedesigns’ direction!

    Those NYC coasters are adorable! I live in Staten Island so it’s always fun to see it written on something. I LOVE that fabric on the yellow pillow. We’re redoing our living room in grey and yellow and those would be perfect!
