Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Ready to take 5 with some children’s illustration, photography, vintage finds, modern collages and prints with vintage charm? Or perhaps you’ve visited to save a little dough on a very special promotion from my featured Etsy seller this week? Whatever the reason I’m happy to have you here today to check out this week’s finds for Etsy Take Five Tuesdays, enjoy!


Jennifer Squires Productions is offering decor8 readers 25% off your total order by entering decor8 in the “message to the seller box” (wait to receive your revised invoice before you pay). This is a nice chance to snap up some gorgeous photos for your home! Offer valid until March 24, 2009.

Iris Schwarz of Paulette Edition is an illustrator and graphic designer working and living Zurich. I’ve been to Zurich and loved it — any artist could really thrive there between the inspirational architecture, culture and the great beauty of the surrounding mountains. I’m loving these prints from Iris which remind me of antique book illustrations — very nice work!

Tanja Lichtensteiger is a Swiss-Filipina artist living in Yorkshire, England who paints characters with a definite storybook quality, I imagine seeing them in children’s books or something. So whimsical and sweet! {her blog}

Harlow Monroe Vintage in Boulder has lots of yummy kitsch worth looking at — love all the aqua!

I love, love, love Anna Betts in Cambridge, England! She’s studying for her degree in Illustration and I can tell already that she’s on the right path. Great pouches for your pencils and even better original artwork. Fun, modern, clean… don’t miss the paper ball kit! {blog}

Want your shop to be in the spotlight? If you would like to be a featured seller simply email me (holly AT decor8blog DOT com) with your Etsy shop link and let me know the discount (must be a percentage off total order or BOGO offer to be considered) that you’d be willing to offer decor8 readers for a period of one week. I cannot run all submissions but I’ll certainly consider each of them for a future Etsy Take Five Tuesdays. Thank you!
