Yup, it’s time for another gift guide! I had so much fun shopping for holiday presents this month. Besides looking forward to giving them to folks I love, It’s so inspiring to look through shops of so many creative makers that I can easily spend nights on end browsing for fun, inspiring things. From custom made pet collars to beady brooches, from pufferfish bags to tit mugs, here’s a collection of my favorite crafty goodies, all spotted on Etsy.
All the items are currently available online and clicking the links will lead you directly to the shopping spots. Enjoy!
People have said that entering my home is like walking straight into my blog. I love to have lots and lots of art upon my walls! To keep my eyes tickled I like to change things around too, so over the years buying prints has become one of my favorite things to do. I keep a list of wannahave art prints on Etsy that I browse through frequently and since the holidays are around the corner, I though it would be nice to share a selection of favorites with you all. That gorgeous illustration by Kate Pugsley is still one of my favorites..
I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two in one of the magical, dazzling illustrated landscapes by artist Sara Boccaccini Meadows. There is so much happening in her beautiful work and I love it up to the tiniest detail! I remember sharing Sara’s work back in 2016 and it’s such a delight to see how her paintings have evolved over the years. For more, visit her website and follow her on Instagram.
I have been following the beautiful work of Italy based artist Margherita Paoletti for a while and figured it’s about time to share some of my favorites with you all. Hidden behind flowers or covered in detailed drawings, there’s something so whimsical and powerful about her beautiful portraits that gets me every time.
Oh my, it has been way too long since I shared a ceramic Gift Guide. Working on my own pots has kept me busy lately, but now that I am traveling in Japan I have been super inspired to get back to it and search the web for new clay made gems. Browsing through them on Etsy was so much fun!
Lots of round shapes, gorgeous colors and such a playful appearance. And besides being all lovely, these clay made creatures are busy bees that frequently carry bits of wood and stone around on their little heads.
There’s something about the beautifully illustrated characters in Nadia Valavani’s drawings that makes me stare at them for a long time. Curious for a story behind their faces, making stories up myself. Nadia draws under the name Old Brown Shoe Stories, which connects to the stories “that each human being carries with.” In this interview at Pikchur Magazine you can read more about Nadia’s beautiful work.
