Etsy is a magical, magical world. I’ve been trying to figure out what to put on the walls in our 2nd bedroom/office/Mumbles’ closet/guest room. I wanted something whimsical and fun and I’d been eyeing watercolors and illustrations for quite some time. Then, I somehow stumbled upon Amber Alexander’s lovely Etsy shop. And that’s the magic of Etsy. I want just about everything she makes — beautiful florals, feathers, and furry friends. I simply adore her work.
I ended up purchasing three prints from her shop so that I could put them in these wood frames I found at Target (I love that you can see the grain and knots in the wood). Meet my three new mates Byron, Duncan and Looker the Alligator. Mumbles likes Duncan enough to want to take him to work but I’m not quite sure if I can give him up.
Also, Amber was sweet enough to send a few cards in my package which was such a fun surprise. I was delighted to gift them to some friends later on and even more excited to show them the cute little stories Amber has created for each of the characters on the back of the card. For example, I said “Happy Birthday” with this fabulous card for my wine-loving friend. The caption read: “I don’t know what could have been ‘hard’ about her day. She’s a cat! not enough catnip? lost her toy? bad fur day?” I just thought it was darling. So did my friend.
Super sweet stuff.
What are your favorite Etsy shops?
P.S. I thought Byron, Duncan and Looker all needed to be a foursome (you know, in case they wanted to play golf or something) so I happily scooped up this darling fox by Eastwitching. Now I’ve got a happy bunch of furry, sophisticated friends!
