Time for some Etsy Top 3 Tuesday, and boy did I need it. The husband has been home sick for 4 days now, and its getting harder and harder to stay productive when you have a sick guy on the couch! So, some time spent wondering aimlessly on Etsy was the perfect way for me to get back to normal. Today I focused on all things local, to me. Each shop is located in L.A and are filled with fun finds.
First up are the amazing photographs from artist and commercial photographer Sharon Montrose. If you are an animal lover, you simply must check out her shop, and blog! Back when I was a wee little one, my dream job was to be an animal trainer, although what 8 year old girl didn’t want to work with animals?? Each animal is real, and most are housed in a local private California zoo. These are perfect for framing and would make for a lovely gift, hint hint. I was in love with every animal, just look at that adorable little porcupine, then I stopped by her blog. Whoa. Her puppy shots make me all kinds of giddy! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
After all the animals, I cruised on over to EfiaFair, where all things are warm and fuzzy. Even though a winter in L.A consists of temperatures close to 70, a girl can never have too many scarves. I just love yarn, and have a small obsession with knitting, and these little lovelies from EfiaFair were just calling my name. Mixing in a little fun, a little practicality and a whole lot of warmth, these accessories are perfect for our fall/winter weather. See something you like, but would work way better for you in a different color? Custom orders are also available! I would so rock those gloves with bows any day. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
And last but not least, for all of you out there like me that have a certain problem with dropping our phones and iPods do check out the wares over at Sea Side Sew. I don’t know how many times I have dropped my phone, some have been rather interesting too, including the time I tried to buckle my seat belt with phone in hand. It went sailing right out the window and under my car! If only I had one of these cases, the phone probably would have made it. So for all you iPhone carriers, wrap it up! And, most are even water resistant… although Im not sure how it would stand up to, say a nice dunk in a toilet! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
