Its Tuesday and have I got some fun Etsy finds for you.  Now that most people are on some type of budget for the holiday season, why not do some early shopping with all the talented folks on Etsy.  Today I am showcasing finds that would make for some great gifts, or you know awesome additions for yourself too!

First up are the lovely finds over at CC Star.  If you have a love for fun, bright vintage fabrics, then  you will love Celeste’s shop!  Lately I have had a fascination with little buttons and have started collecting them for a larger project, and some of these are just way to perfect to pass up!  CC Star is filled with coin purses, cuffs, buttons and small pouches all made with found vintage fabrics and ties!  How cool is that!  And if you are in Northern California and are just loving all the crafty goodness, be sure to stop by all the craft fairs CC Star is participating in, I sure wish I could! And if you are on facebook, you can even be CC Stars fan too! Just a few things that I am crushing on, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Next up are the fun finds from The Crafty Pantry.  Using drawings, paintings, photography and digital drawings, this talented lady has a fun and colorful collection of totes, cards, gift tags, lunch bags and even wine bottle bags.  I am just loving all the bold colors, and want all the totes!  How perfect is that Cheers bag for wine gift giving… it will look so much better then sticking your bottle in one of those holographic bags.  And those produce bags, I think I need an entire case of those for this veggie eatin’ household! And be sure to check out the blog for shop updates and all around craft fun. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

The 3rd shop for the day, Rohmer,  is filled with all kinds of fun pencil cases made from colorful and whimsical prints.  Like me and a little old for pencil cases? Why not store your makeup or small items…. we all have something that can use a bag!  They could even double for a casual clutch too!  Your little ones will love them, the older ones will always find a use.  For an inside on how designer Eileen creates these little guys, check out her featured seller interview for Etsy.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

And on a side note I somehow managed to find two stores today that are both located in the Oakland area… a short driving distance from my hometown!!

So now that winter is upon us, well sort of in Southern California, I have broken out the old votives and started lighting at around 4 pm!  Seriously, its pitch black here by 5.  Candles are such a great way to bring in light, and everything looks good in candle light.  Made an average dinner?  Throw some candles on the table and it instantly looks like a 5 star meal.  They can instantly give an area a warm glow and make everything incredibly inviting.  So with that, I took to my favorite sites and found all kinds of holders, ranging in sizes, shapes, colors and prices.  Best deal, check out number 5, its a whole 95 cents!  And now that the holidays are coming, they are the perfect accessory for any tabletop or cluster them together for a focal point, just stay away from the scented ones, especially if you are cooking!!

Next up are the works of Michelle Brusegaard from North Dakota, and boy is this lady talented!  Just a look at all she does is enough to make me tired, a painter, fiber artist, card maker, screen printer and photographer just to name a few of her many talents.  And over in her shop, design is everywhere.  With so many talents, its no wonder there are so many items for sale, just a few that I was loving… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 And be sure to stop by her blog and say hi, or join her mailing list for discounts!!

And last up for this week is the findings from Vintage Chevelle.  Aside from an awesome name, this shop has some lovely finds that would be perfect for a little change around your place.  Keeping accessories dust and clutter free are a must, but collections are always fun to have around.  Sitting on my bookcase I currently have a wedding photo, our guest book, a framed music page with a song written by my father in law to my husband when he was little, a painting and two Simpson bobble heads (can you tell which was the addition from the hubby?!).  As long as it makes sense to your personality, the collection doesn’t matter!  And Vintage Chevelle has all kinds of little trinkets to make a house a home. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Its Tuesday and you know what that means.  My top etsy picks for the week.  A little home decor, a few ceramics and some wall vinyl.  Its a good Tuesday.

I can’t express how much I love mixing traditional and modern designs, and these ceramics from Nina in Vorm are impressive.  Nina has a great eye for details in her custom screen printed ceramics and vintage “redecorated” ceramics.  What a great way to enhance all those old dishes!  Each of her pieces is very handmade, using a combination of slipcasting and hand shaping.  The result, one of a kind pieces that are just so much fun to look at.  I think each time I look, I find something new in her designs!  If you are loving her work as much as I do, you must check out her blog.  Hello color.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Next up are the findings from Sky Parlor.  If you have a love for vintage and quirky little additions for your home, then you must stop by and take a look around.  All of their items have a slightly worn feeling, in a good way.  Little accessories are a good way to create small vignettes in your home.   Its a great way to show off a collection or showcase your favorite pieces, and because it is small, you can often change it out without spending a dime!   A few of Sky Parlors items that I wouldn’t mind finding a place for in my house… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

And last but not least today, how about some wall graphics?  Designer Michelle Christina has some pretty fun wall vinyl and stickers that can really make an impact on any average wall, glass or even toilet.  Just check out her blog for some ideas.  I just love the fun factor of her designs, who said that wall graphics have to be formal and always grown up anyway.  And those stickers for glassware are a perfect way to add a little pizazz to your ordinary cups.  I think those pink jellies are my favorite, I could see them adding some fun to any bathroom! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

A little cartoony

Do you ever come across something, in this case an artist, and literally fall in love with everything they have ever done?  Yeah, that just happened to me.  I somehow stumbled upon Tumblr (more on that later!) and just couldn’t get enough of these little figures by Kurt Halsey.  There is something so genuine and in the moment about these little guys.  So after browsing his blog, one look at his shop and I was done for.  Plus, Kurt just seems like a pretty awesome guy, and dreams about the being a part of the Steve Irwin! Below is just some of his work for sale, his tumblr, Kurt.Halsey.is.love has tons of recent drawings for your viewing pleasure.  And, for anyone living in Philadelphia, stop by and check out his work at the Art Star Gallery & Boutique, open till November 1st.  I would be totally jealous.
