April 1st, 2011 | Etsy Picks: Spring Fever

Spring is here!!! Woohoo! And I have spring fever! I’m so excited, Spring is my second favourite season (Fall being the first). This week’s picks are colours/things that just visually make me either think of spring, or give me the same refreshed feeling that Spring does when I look at them! Oh happy days!

The 3rd last one is a little special – my most recent Etsy buy. Floral mug (pattern of your choice) with whatever letter you’d like on them! I ordered the pink, with the letter K of course! We’re so excited for Spring! Has it arrived where you are yet?!

March 27th, 2011 | Weekly Etsy Picks – The Local Seller Edition

This week’s etsy picks are done a little differently. I wanted to focus on some of the amazing local sellers around me. I focused on two areas, Peterborough and Durham Region.

I lived in and went to school in Peterborough. My heart is still in this town, it’s full of wonderful creative people and amazing local stores, restaurants and bars. Whitby/Durham region is my home town.

Some of these sellers are bloggers as well, so I have included links to both their blogs and Etsy stores. Who are your favourite local Etsy sellers?

1. Tea & Chickadees / The Vintage Apartment – Peterborough, On

2. My Girl ThursdayEtsy store – Peterborough, On

3. Jolly Polly Pickins – Oshawa, On

4. Nancy Wallis / Nancy Wallis Designs – Whitby, On

5. Hypho – Peterborough, On

Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m obsessed with patterns that most people consider to be ‘tacky’. Vintage florals are currently my favourite patterns. What’s your favourite pattern?
