I promise that in my next post, I'll bring you an actual project, but for now, I've got a few etsy purchases I'm really excited to share with you.
I know I said in my last post that I'm obsessed with jewelry, but I might be equally obsessed with buying art. Here are my latest buys:
This print is called "Trapped" by Rheea, who happens to be one of my favorite etsy sellers.
She lives in Singapore, and her line-work is just beautiful.
The print quality is amazing and the details are insane. It's also a plus that she has free shipping and is wonderful about communicating with her buyers when an item has shipped and when to expect it.
"Trapped" is my second Rheea purchase, as the first one I got months ago is hanging in my sitting room:
I am bummed to see that her etsy shop is on vacation until December, so you'll have to go check her out when she comes back. :)
Hooray, more art from Yellena James! Remember when I got one of her prints from 20x200 a while back?
Well I lucked out by finding her etsy shop at a time when she had a buy 2 get 1 free sale, so I jumped on that and chose these three:
I plan to mat and frame them and, using the one I already have, create a square of prints above my bed in my master bedroom. I'm on the lookout for frames and hope to be bringing you that finished project soon!!
Third purchase is from a wonderful, lovely etsy seller named LeiLiLaLoo. She's located in Amsterdam, and this was shipped out to me insanely fast and the art was well protected, which is always appreciated.
The print quality is awesome, and the rest of her shop is ridiculously cute. She was so easy to work with so I highly recommend you go check her out.
Back to my jewelry obsession, please. :)
I get so many compliments on these earrings it's not even funny. I purchased them from seller RedFaerieBeads, who has been nothing but over-the-top awesome.
These earrings are the perfect size and go with everything, and the customer service provided was unparalleled.
Can you handle one more piece of jewelry? This necklace comes from seller louloudo, who is located in the UK. I also get so many compliments on this necklace, and have been wearing it a TON lately. Funny story: I had the triangles flipped last week so that the backside, the black side, was showing, and the airport security ID-checker lady said she first thought it was a tattoo across my chest - nice. :) This piece is really light-weight and goes with so many things. AND the piece arrived (from the freaking UK) in THREE DAYS. Simply amazing. :)
____________________________________________Last, but certainly not least, I bring to you this ADORABLE pink stretchy headband with detachable flower clip from LittleLilyBelle. Got this for my cousin who just had a baby girl, and not gonna lie, it fueled my baby fever by... a lot.
I almost cannot stand the cuteness. :)
Have you noticed how I purchased things from the Netherlands, Singapore, the UK and all over the U.S.? It's pretty phenomenal to me how Etsy allows for this global exchange of amazing creations. It is quite wonderful to be a part of the community, and I'm so happy to support and promote each of these shops. So, go check them out and happy shopping!!
