Etsy Faves

I thought I would feature some Etsy shops that I love that have nothing to do with photography...i know!
I'm enchanted by the watercolor illustrations of Zurich, Switzerland artist Emilie Maguin.  Her Etsy shop, Printed Pretties by Emilie Maguin sells candy colored prints, many featuring flapper ladies and forest creatures.






 




Canadian artist Janet Hill's Etsy Shop, Janet Hills Studio, is filled with the most charming prints based off of her oil paintings.  I love her use of color and the retro feminine vibe. I will be purchasing as soon as I can choose which one...so hard!
Her Etsy Shop: Janet Hill Studio
Her Website: Janet Hill Studio









I love Etsy stores that have several types of items.  Lu:ka is a mix of fashion and home accessories including pillows, skirts, little fabric notebooks and lavender door hangers.  The designer is from Slovakia and that shows in her rich, floral fabric choices.  Do you love the little green bag as much as I do?!











Finally, Sleepy King's (i love that name!) Etsy shop has handmade stuffed woodland critters (many recycled or upcycled) and sweet owl wing hair accessories.  They are based in Chico, California and have been featured in Stuffed magazine.  So cute!
The Shop: Sleepy King

More photo jewelry is now available in my Etsy Shop. Including book lockets and Grande Luxe Lockets which are larger than the standard photo lockets.
I love how the Magnify Grande looks like a pocket watch...so charming!
All open and have room for photos, pills, whatever your heart desires!

I'm sorry to say that I have only participated in 2 Miss Match weeks because I have just been too busy lately.  When summer is over, I hope to be an active participant.  I have missed a few Divine Diptychs as well, but will be doing Week 10 and can't wait to shoot it.  
Here is my Week 7 Miss Match image.  I was paired with the lovely Allilucy and our theme was Romantic.  


Here are the other images I was working with.  The simple ring above, worked perfectly and created a quiet, romantic image with very similar tones.


Our 2nd choice:

Grande Luxe Locket!

I'm loving my collaboration with Lori Patton of the Etsy shop, Heartworks by Lori.  More jewelry items are in shop now, including my new fave, Lady Bird Grande Luxe Locket.  Its larger than the regular lockets and more ornate.  The locket opens and has space for 2 images of your choice inside.  Total statement piece!
There are 6 necklaces available now in shop: CLICK HERE.
We also collaborated on the most charming photo book clips (see last image).
