✚ Mountain and Tooth cushions from Three Bad Seeds
I’m a sucker for a cute cushion, and Three Bad Seeds in Washington make so many good ones! My favorite is their Three Sisters mountain range pillow, inspired by the Three Sisters Wilderness area in Oregon. As you may know from my Instagrams of roadside dentist offices, I have a thing for anthropomorphic teeth. I can’t explain it, I just do. Evan knows to pull over when I see a really good one. I’m also kind of horrified by teeth at the same time…it’s a complex obsession. Anyway, these Sweet Tooth pillows have a little pocket on the back for kids to put their baby teeth in for the Tooth Fairy (shudder), but I’d really like to have whole row of them lined up on a chair in my house. Just not anywhere near where I sleep.
✚ Gone Hunting pillow from Bark Decor
I’ve had these Gone Hunting pillows on my wishlist forever, along with a bunch of other things from Boston-based Bark Decor. I keep picturing a big pile of them on a deep, white sofa…they just look so soft and natural. Ideally, I’d be lounging on that pillow pile while wearing a Wild Catalope cardigan. Perfect, yes?
✚ Zippered linen pouches from Indigo Bird Design
Indigo Bird Design in Toronto make pouches. Lots and lots of pouches. I own pouches. Lots and lots of pouches. Too many pouches. And yet…I still want more pouches. I’d like to have this Emergency linen pouch (with a neon zipper!) for carrying band-aids and aspirin in my bag, and this teal Polka Dot pouch would be perfect for holding my lipstick, cash, ID and MetroCard when I don’t feel like taking a whole wallet out with me. Plus it matches my blog. POUCHES.
✚ All kinds of dog accessories from Grey Paw
I tried to narrow down my Grey Paw wishlist to two items, but I couldn’t make it happen. Too many nice things! I have to admit that I’m not one of those people who buys a bunch of dog stuff — Fritz and Bruno have one well-fitting sweater each for when it’s really cold outside, and they sleep on the sofa, bed and floor. That’s kind of the extent of it. Suddenly, though, I’m finding myself wanting to get them (I mean me…) a few nice things. Grey Paw is based in Portland, as evidenced by their use of Pendleton fabrics in much of what they sell — including this Camp Mat, which I’m sure Bruno would love to stretch out on while wearing this ikat-patterned neckerchief. REALLY. I’m also having a hard time resisting these natural leather dog collars, which Grey Paw will custom-stamp in any number of stamp designs. Plus signs for Fritz and triangles for Bruno?? And finally, the rope leash. Nothing says overkill like walking a 7lb dog with a rope, but man, so nice-looking.
OK, now it’s your turn: What’s on your Etsy wishlist? I always love seeing new shops!
My Etsy wishlist is I WANT EVERYTHING. I satisfy it somewhat via trading – somewhat. There are a few things I so so wish I could buy, though: these shoes from Concetta’s Closet, which I have been in love with since the first time I saw them in maybe March or earlier; any of the lingerie from Ohhh Lulu; and any of these coats.
I’ve been doing a lot of etsy window shopping lately, and not a lot of buying (unfortunately). Here are some favorites:
Oooh, I’ve never seen Julia Paul’s work before. Gorgeous stuff!
Thank you, Amy for mentioning my pillows!! You are toooo kind! please enjoy FREE SHIPPING when you enter, bloglovin504!
Oh my gosh, those cushions are just too cute! Thanks for sharing – hopefully I will be on your etsy wishlist one day!
Ooh, thanks for the intro to Grey Paw. Since you asked for suggestions, I love Vitamini (http://www.etsy.com/shop/vitamini) and I don’t even have a MINI Cooper, but two relatives do so it’s great for gifts. I’m also addicted to these handmade soaps – http://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshAsaDaisySoaps and classy friendship bracelets from Lupine Jewelry – http://www.etsy.com/shop/LupineJewelry
AHA! I too have craving both the Three Sisters mountain pillow and the tooth pillows. For, like, three years. I just need to buy them already.
I mostly covet vintage stuff on Etsy; I come to the vintage shops when I’ve grown weary of rummaging through thrift shops and junk stores for a particular type of old thing and have decided to make everything easier on myself by just searching for it on Etsy and paying full retail. So I’m not going to show you any of that stuff because it’s vintage and there’s only one and I don’t want you to buy it! Oh, fine:
1. A pink (!) figa necklace that’s flipping you off: https://www.etsy.com/listing/155312011/pink-fist-necklace-figa-rhodochrosite
I like to think that this belonged to one badass lady Black Panther back in the day. Pinguim is so rad and the owner’s other shop, The Deeps, is just as cool if not cooler.
2. Pony hair high tops! Pony hair high tops! https://www.etsy.com/listing/152086525/pony-hair-sneakers-high-top-sneakers
Not going to happen, both because of the price and the fact that they are a quarter inch too narrow for me. So buy them! And pair them with a sexy-minimal dress for nighttime, please, just like I do in my dreams. Allen Company is so great. I really like the product photography, and she ships super-fast.
3. Big ol’ mid-century chrome lamp with chunky cork, always a good decision: https://www.etsy.com/listing/116446393/mid-century-cork-and-chrome-lamp
And Regina is just the absolute best.
Those Gone Hunting pillows are great, I’d love some of those!
My Etsy cart has like 94 things in it. One Etsy seller that I love is named Yokoo. She does amazing knitted things and makes these Japanese apron-style smocks. I own one which I wear several times a week, but I want one in every fabric!
Here’s her crazy knitted scarf and accessory shop called Yokoo:
Here’s her smock/dress/skirt shop called xMOTHERx:
Looking forward to checking out other favorites listed here.
Yes, I love Yokoo!!
I love this Happy White Pillow from YumusakSeyler:
the Mono Cock in Lime Green:
And in Love Soft Sculpture from the same shop, here you can see it in Bradford Shane Shellhammer’s apartment in the third row:
Have you read “My Milk Toof” by Inhae Lee? It’s so cute, if you are into anthropomorphic teeth (I am too).
Love your blog so so much!
I have, yes! It’s a been a favorite of mine for ages. 🙂 🙂
I grew up vacationing near the Three Sisters! I may just have to get that…
I’m loving the antlers and geometric designs on medicine-style bottles in Honeycomb Studio’s shop, but am especially jonesing for this geometric vase:
I LOVE etsy! There are so many great items that I want! And everything is so unique!
Hey hey, thanks for sharing our work!!!
Interestingly there is a lovely Canadian who commissioned a few LARGE teeth pillows and plans to create an entire lineup on her couch.
Who knew there was such tooth love in the world?!?
Amanda, that’s amazing! It would be even better if it were a waiting room couch at a dentist’s office.
Love those mountains! I feel like they could go in any space… the grey is sublimely soothing.
Love those mountain pillows!
Now here is my wish list!
Oh and this almost thousand dollar blanket!
THAT BLANKET. Maybe I should cancel my oil deliveries for this winter and just buy that blanket instead.
Ah Etsy, what a place to covet and sell…
some favorites of mine
I love Amy Tavern jewellery and her blog, she is a geat artist.
Mount royal mint makes a cutest soft sculpture
The dark green on this bag makes me swoon
Love everything on this pilow
Thanks for sharing your favorites!
Oh, etsy… so many great and so many terrible things.
Since I’m about to turn 30 in October, all I’ve been thinking about is this raw tourmaline and copper birthstone ring —
I keep my list of Etsy shops in a Gmail draft so they’re always handy… lately I’ve been really into Hmong textiles. These stores have some of my favorites:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/dellshop (I bought a beautiful embroidered panel here!)
The idea of cushions is really nice. I like to create different things such as cushions, pillowcases and even bags. And I`ve never thought that they can be not only comfortable but also serve as a decoration for the room.
I ran across a couple shops in the last week:
KOKOMOmade – http://www.etsy.com/listing/102331433/hand-printed-loose-linen-top?ref=tre-2722850606-11 [she’s on vacation, but digging this tunic]
o.mandalade – http://www.etsy.com/shop/omandalade [hand-made bags from brooklyn – i bought one and it’s very nicely made with lots of interior pockets.]
I just saw these on Etsy and feel like you should probably own them even though your Bono mugs are really the best ever.
Ok, so it’s not Etsy, but have you seen the Albers collection on Fab? Their black and white patterns reminded me of you.
I love love Cast and Crew on Etsy – amazing chairs, antlers and knick-knacks to give your home a cool vintage-y vibe.
Love the collection of Industrial Modern Lighting that Ind Lights has on Etsy:
