Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!

The theme of this week's window shopping trip is gifts for Dads! In the USA, Father's Day is June 20th so I thought I'd do some window shopping to help us get some ideas and showcase some of the wonderful handmade offerings for Dad you'll find on Etsy!


FAMILY Word Shape Masculine Photo Album for Father's Day

How about this really cool photo album from Simply Inviting Cards?


What would make a better gift for your family man this Father's Day than this retro-inspired, masculinized word shape photo album? Drawing inspiration from worn leather, old west saloons, retro-style background bursts, pinstripe button down shirts, and tobacco smoke-stained wallpaper matched up with my characteristic edging techniques, there's no reason this album doesn't say ''100% Man''!

Each spread of this photo album is decorated with an earthy and grunged up patterned coordinating papers and is finished with tarnished metal eyelets. Each page is lovingly distressed and aged by hand with walnut colored ink. At 6 in. by 12 in. (15.25 cm x 30.5 cm), this is also a one of a kind item!










Hand Painted Side Plate - Hungry Bear


Dad would really enjoy this hand-painted hungry bear plate from Jimbo Art!  As these plates are individually hand-drawn, each one will differ slightly from the photo. Can personalize the plates for Father's Day!!!

This plate is 9":





  • Dishwasher proof
  • Do not use abrasive material on surface
  • Original artwork done by JimboArt; directly drawn onto late using specific on-glaze ink
This makes for a really unique gift that Dad will cherish for years to come!













Stainless Steel Snake Bracelet


How about giving Dad this really gorgeous chainmaille bracelet by Armored Hearts?

Stainless steel rings are woven in the Full Persian weave. Don't miss out giving Dad the opportunity to wear some metal fear around his wrist!

The beauty of stainless steel is the more Dad wears this bracelet, the more shiny it becomes!  So it's definitely a solid piece of jewelry that Dad can wear every day and think of you!! :)


Well, hope you enjoyed this week's addition of Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!  Dedicated to Dads everywhere!  Have a great week!
