Etsy Love

I have no idea why I haven't done this sooner, because I keep seeing great Etsy finds on everyone's blogs...
Like this gorgeous watercolor by Laura L. Trevey - posted on Blueprint Bliss the other day...
and these cute note cards by Ana Stella, on La Dolce Vita .

I FINALLY went to the site yesterday, and it's LOVE!

I've been complaining for awhile about wanting affordable art, and this is totally the place!

I didn't want to get overwhelmed with the amazingness of the site, so I started just looking at some of the paintings.... and there are just so many! I only got to page 91 of over 5600 pages!!

Here are some of my finds -but I'll warn you, I'm ALL over the place in terms of style!
"Early Morning" by Neysa's Art "Silhouette 9" by Amy Giacomelli""Field" by Jennifer Shears"Abstract" by Roz Art "Cocktail Lounge Ladies" by Kerry Beary "Consume" by Best Art Studios2. I guess I'm feeling the turq/teal color scheme that's going on right now!
"Emeco Chair" by Nan Lawson

"Graphic Eames 2 Print Pack" by Nan Lawson --- I'm thinking it might be fun to have a bunch of these chair paintings?!

And what's so great is that most of these prints are not very expensive. There are so many different styles and themes on the site that it would be hard not to find something that you like!

You should check out Julia's blog today about Brooke Giannetti's Beach House -- it's gorgeous! And I've mentioned before how much I LOVE her work!! And also check out The Inspired Room and Fifi's Flowers!



    ETSY is a WONDERFUL avenue for artist to promote and sell their creations!

    Bon week-end!

  2. J'adore the one about Cocktail Lounge reminds me of the hit TV show Mad Men from AMC. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I need to do some Etsy shopping!! I'm looking for some unique thank-you cards, and Etsy might be just the place to find them :-)

    The chair prints are cool. And yes, a grouping of them would look great!! Also really like the Cocktail Lounge Ladies -- it's fun & bright & retro with a modern touch to it. And the turquoise is fab!!

  4. Etsy rocks! I just discovered it lately and I feel like I've been totally missing out. Bonus: I didn't even know they had art. Just thought it was handmade wearables! Thanks!

  5. Yes, I love Etsy, but thanks for showing a few more wonderful items (impossible for me to ever discover them all!). I could happily hang 'Early Morning' on my wall and I'll be checking out Laura Trevey too.

  6. I've got an Etsy art site! It is nice to have original, one-of-a-kind art around the house. Lately, I've been trying to create items that can be given as gifts. (and am working on making notecards -just running a little behind schedule!)

  7. Well, you just made my day! Thanks so much for including my "Beach Chairs" print on your post!

    Have a fabulous weekend ~~

    xo Laura

  8. You definitely have an eye for beautiful artwork.
    I really like "the field" painting. So pretty.
    Thank you for coming by Velvet and Linen and leaving such a lovely comment!

    Struggling to be Stylish to collect a small award.

  10. I love that first print!
