Our Etsy Spring Wish List

Spring is almost here!!! I googled and the first official day of spring is March 20th! So in honor of the warmer weather coming back, I compiled an Etsy "Spring Wish List" full of bright colors and cheery designs! You'll love these Etsy finds and their talented makers!

This absract watercolor painting makes me think of little rain drops in a puddle. And as they say, "April showers bring May flowers." The colors and simplicity are so soothing.

 

SARAH K BENNING
Oh Hey

Oh hi! Sarah's shop is full of contemporary embroidery. I enjoy the fact that it is homey and inviting yet quirky and fun! It could be the perfect item to spruce up your space after some spring cleaning! (Time for me to dust the fan blades!)

 

ELIZABETH MAYVILLE
Grapefruit Still Life

Have you been to Elizabeth Mayville's shop? If you haven't, you are missing out! As she describes it, "

All of my work has to do with the small and beautiful moments of a quiet day."

Her prints are all so crisp and fresh feeling...like a spring day morning!

 

TILISSIMO
Tribal Inspired Coasters

I'm always a sucker for patterns, and this bright tribal pattern is awesome! So when you're on the porch enjoying this lovely spring weather, you can sit your drink on one of these little guys.

 

GRINDSTONE DESIGNS
Suspended Plant Shelf

Brooke's pieces are all unique because she mainly uses salvaged materials. This hanging shelf is whimsical and just perfect for hanging spring flowers! :)

 

SALT AND LIGHT DESIGNS
Wooden Pallet Art: Let Your Light Shine

This piece with the sunrise is just so happy! Makes me think of the days growing longer as spring and summer approach. If you are in need of pallet art, definitely check out the rest of Kait's shop!! You may remember that we interviewed Kait Waggoner of Salt and Light Designs last year. You can view the interview here

 

PARAGRAPH LOOP
Peach Jewelry Dish

Spring is wedding season. Therefore, it may be time for you to purchase some wedding gifts. When we got married, one of my favorite wedding gifts was a tiny bowl for my rings. So if you need gifts, head over to this shop! They have lots of colors to choose from!

 

HOLD YOU ME
Organic Baby Leggings

I wish they made these in my size! Definitely a great baby gift this spring.

 

 NIRWA
Geometric Pillow

This pillow has a unique blend of colors that makes it very eye-catching -- perfect for a little redecorating. The pillows are all handmade in Istanbul, Turkey!

 

THIS LOVES THAT
Glitter and Mint Envelope Clutch

With the change in wardrobe, you may be needing a new little clutch to carry. This shop has so many colors and variations to choose from. They would make a perfect gift for a friend.

That sums up our Etsy Spring 2015 Wish List! Thank you to all the shops for letting us showcase your items!

Our Etsy Inspired Christmas Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Growing up, my mom found the best little surprises to fill our stockings! 

In honor of my mom's great stockings, here is Texture Design's 2014 Etsy Stocking Stuffer Ideas!

Yes, I included one of our shop's prints! This cute little skirt comes in a 5x7 or 8x10 print! I love the simple clean lines of the skirt! It would look great in a little girl's room or a guest room!

What girl doesn't live a little wasabi tape to liven up their packages, notebooks, grift wrap... This shop has tons of fun designs, but right now I'm swooning over the polka dot print!

Yes, polka dots again! This graphic pillow is fabulous because it could be paired with any color! Yellow, taupe, green....it is so versatile! It does not come with the insert, so you can stash this pillow cover in anyone's stocking! This shop also has a great variety of other fabrics to choose from.

It is time to liven up the table with these cactus napkins! This set of napkins is screen printed in Amelie Mancini's Brooklyn studio. Definitely check out her other screen printed items!
