This week, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a kind comment regarding my last post on homemade art. A reader named Nadine mentioned she had recently discovered the crafty goodness that is Etsy and it made her think of Pretty*Practical! Awww, thanks Nadine!
And yes it's true. I do have a special place in my heart for Etsy. I've always found it to be a great go-to resource for special little items that won't be seen everywhere and Etsy is invaluable when you need gift-buying ideas for that 'hard-to-shop-for' friend/relative. You know who you are! :-)
Of course, there are tons of talented crafters to choose from and we all have our faves - so here are some of mine:
1. Simple printed ceramics and wooden blocks from Paloma's Nest above are both earthy and elegant.
2. Be still my heart with these large scale floral prints from Kaiku. So beautiful!
3. I'm loathe to share this one :-) Gorgeous and very affordable cushion covers from Ruth's Crafts.
4. Hammered copper earrings and glass cocktail rings from Saffron Creations. These are fierce!
I am a freelance fashion writer and stylist who is a stay-at-home mom by day and serial decorator by night.
Growing up, one of my mom's favorite mantras was "pretty but not practical". Nowadays, my aim is to meld the two.
This blog is a style-file of home decor inspiration that is both stylish and accessible. It's also a way of sharing my constantly evolving ideas for living large in a small space.
Thanks for visiting - hope you enjoy!
