fridayfaves-mar13Yay, it’s Friday!  Time to celebrate with some awesome Etsy sellers.

So I love fabulous headwear but I’ve found that I never have the courage to really go above and beyond.  I’m a big hat person, and some people even find that a bit questionable.  However, if I had the occasion and the guts, I would wear something from Emilliner. This particular piece is supposed to be for a bridal ensemble, but I think it could be worn in a number of circumstances.  She has some wonderful, whimsical and sometimes more subtle creations in her shop – I urge you to check it out, for artistic value alone!

I know that everyone’s not a knitter, but I can’t help but share some of my favorite spun creations.  I love Moonrover‘s colors – they remind me of old German fairy tales.  They have wonderful, deep bold colors, and the price is super-reasonable.  One of my favorite things are the cute little hand drawn cards that identify each of the yarns.

OK.  I am trying not to get too excited about this, but I really have a hard time finding sweets that I like and for the most point, I usually avoid them because I’m sure I’ll end up disappointed.  However, Whimsy and Spice seems to be the place to go for interesting and delicious confections.  Who would have thought they could have ever lived without caramel-infused marshmallows?  Or rose and black pepper thumbprints?  Plus, as an extra bonus, they’re all hand made, preservative free and I’m sure, delicious.

I’ve just discovered Coco’s Greenhouse and I really love her stuff!  Whimsical, dainty and feminine, with some awesome color choices and really reasonable prices. I think that her stuff is part Victorian, part cabinet of curiosities.  There’s definitely a nice balance between nature-inspired pieces and luxe materials.

Thanks to this week’s awesome artists!

Here are some of my latest favorites on Etsy. There are so many great sellers on the site, it’s hard to make a choice!

I cannot tell you how much I love handspun yarn. I’m a fiber freak anyways, but the variagated colors and textures seem to be so much more present in handmade yarn! Plus, I love the idea that you can buy something directly from someone who spun it with their own hands, it’s so old fashioned! Mud Creek doesn’t have too much in the shop but what is there is absolutely fabulous.

Eninaj is another one of my absolute favorites. Her pieces look so technical and mechanical, but are made from leather and pearls and silver. It’s the kind of jewelry you could wear with a little black dress and make a huge statement.

Matty8080 continues to be one of my favorite illustrators on Etsy. Not only does he create whimsical/creepy drawings of zombies, strange underwater creatures and funny masks, he’s a very nice person too! His packages always include tons of extras and fun goodies. And we share the same birthday!

EnFinLaVoila might possibly be the only place I will ever go for cards again. Talk about fantastical! Baroque illustrations, a touch of whimsy, and some great color choices combine to make chic, unusual and wonderful cards.
