Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy 2012

One of my New Year's resolutions was to bring back my weekly feature, Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy.  It was fun to do and there's nothing like featuring at least some of the wonderful handmade things that are available on Etsy!

In keeping with the feature, I will be using trends revealed in this month's "From Etsy's Merchandising Desk" as the basis of my theme.  There's quite a few of them to choose from but I thought I would begin with...
 Cottage chic decor and accessories

First up, from The Back Porch Shoppe, this wonderful LOVE 9x5.5 Shabby Cottage Pink Valentine's Day signSweet pink sign, "LOVE" is done is PALE PINK with SAND LETTERING & RIBBON, and embellished with AGED WHITE DOTS. Measures 9" wide x 5" high. Perfect sign for any, anniversary, birthday, valentine's day, or my favorite...a "just because". 

Secondly, we have this beautiful fine art photograph by Madden Photography!   TITLE:Romantic Pink Timeless Roses SIZE: 5x7. Printed on Metallic Endura Paper, which offers a beautifully saturated colorful print. Endura is strong and resistant to tearing and fading over the years!
Print is unmated and unframed, signed on the back, and shipped in sturdy packaging to protect photo:)

How about this beautiful Square Pillow Cover in gorgeous pink check by White Oak Room? Don't you just love the wooden button accent? "I believe every home can be comfy and beautiful with tons of personality. Pillows are an accessory that can change the look of a living room, bedroom, kitchen and sun room. I constantly change my pillow covers with the seasons or my mood and now you can too!!  One 16" x 16" handmade pillow cover done in PINK CHECK ON NATURAL COLORED LINEN fabric with a Wood Button Accent.♥ This listing is priced for one pillow cover ONLY, pillow inserts are NOT included. ♥ Envelope opening in the front. ♥ Designer fabric on both front AND back of all my pillow covers! All of my items are double stitched for durability."

And last but not least, this wonderful Sprinkled With Love Cottage Custom DollHouse by Cinderella Moments?  So much detail was put into this amazing little house!  "Sprinkled With Love Cottage is a custom, one of a kind dollhouse. This is a very sweet creation all white in and out.
Outside, i started with a wood structure and covered it with concrete to make a very strong house. Bonded to the concrete is the cardboard siding. Everything is painted in a antique white. The wood floor porch is gray. The front porch has a pink working chandelier. This light is battery powered as is the inside chandelier. The battery and switch are hidden in the chimney.
On the porch, I handmade a beehive out of clay sitting on an aged white table. There is a rake, shovel,. chair and watering can all made of metal. There's also a clay pot . The porch is bordered by a wire fence.
The house is covered on all 4 sides with 3 different types of vines. So romantic!"

Well, that's it for this week's feature.  Hope you enjoyed it.  Remember, this is just a fraction of the wonderful things you can find on Etsy, the world's handmade marketplace!  You really owe it to yourself to see what Cottage Chic Decor and Accessories you can find!  Take care and see you next week!
