Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

It's Take Five Tuesdays time, one of my favorite posts to pull together! Last week I missed writing this column, and I feel so bad -- I hope you aren't upset with me. I hate to let anyone down, it's just like I was a bit of an airhead last Tuesday (I specifically recall that day and how much work was on my plate) and I forgot to write my Etsy post. I promise to make it up to you now with the best batch of sellers yet. I find these especially sweet. I've even included a 6th to win your love back. :) So here you go, your weekly Etsy dose! I love the mini original paintings by This is all I know in Portland, OR. I cannot stop looking at them ever since Ez showed them on her wish list. I seriously cannot peel myself away. I would love to own each of these shown above, I'm absolutely smitten by the little faces looking back at me.

Krize: Smiling Shop from Spain. Digital prints, cards, and more to tickle your fancy. Aren't the illustrations (and colors) sweet?

Luxe Deluxe in Scotland. Jewelry that I think I seriously need to own at least 10 necklaces from. OMG. Somebody talk me out of it, quick! Oh wait, you need talking out of a major splurge as well? Sorry, I guess we have to just give in to maybe one...

Sharon Montrose Photography out of Los Angeles. Does it ever feel like LA is the new Brooklyn or something? I hear more and more about LA this and LA that. And just look at the cutie pie animals. The owl is calling me, but I haven't a vacant wall to spare... Sorry little hootie. Maybe you can adopt him?

Sea Unicorn in Los Angeles. More jaw dropping gems. Seriously people, these sellers on Etsy are blowing my mind. Why would I ever need to shop in a mall EVER AGAIN. I cringe now when I walk by all of those accessories chain stores because for not much more money I can own something that benefits a seller and her family, supports the local economy, and has some heart behind it. Am I right?

B O N U S seller, here's #6: Trumpery laser cut pendants (or whatever you want them to be, just add string!) in San Francisco. I cannot for the life of me recall when I found out about them, it may have been on a blog. If so, please raise your hand if you blogged them so you can get full credit here. Don't be shy, call out your find sista!
