Etsy Schmetsy: Gnifty & Gnoteworthy Gnomes

I think part of my desire to live in a little log cabin in the woods is the magical mystique that the forest boasts. I figure I would be bound to befriend woodland creatures of all shapes and sizes—including, perhaps, a gnome or two. Enjoy some of my favorite gnome-y Etsy finds.

Etsy Schmetsy: Loads of Totes

Whether you are carrying around a sketchbook and tools or you’re headed off to the flea market or grocery store, a tote is totally the accessory you need. It has become a vehicle for self-expression, more fashionable and functional than a tee shirt.

Etsy Schmetsy: Grayellow

It came up on The Fashion Show the other week (admittedly on Merlin’s dress which got him kicked off): grey with yellow. I’ve been looking for it and thinking about it as a color combination a lot recently and it may be my new favorite. So effin beautiful together.

Etsy Schmetsy: The ties that bind

So, father’s day is coming up and you can’t figure out what to give the guy who has everything? There’s always the safe bet of a tie. (Actually, the hipster ties we’ve rounded up here are probably more suited for your beaux, or yourself, than your dad.)
