Etsy Schmetsy: Year of the Tiger

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone. It’s the Year of the Tiger, so now you have a great excuse to adorn your walls, desk, head and so forth with the orange and black striped paragons of predatory cuteness. Here are ten handmade tigers (and one vintage one) from Etsy.

Etsy Schmetsy: Purses!

Purses, handbags, pocketbooks, clutches; they’re all fantastic in my book. If you too are a handbag afficionado, you owe it to yourself to check out these lovely finds from etsy.

Row 1:
This gorgeous metallic upcycled vintage clutch by brittnilaur will be a hit at any holiday fête.
I think this clean, classic black-and-white clutch from JuliaSherryDesigns is lovely and its bright pink dupioni lining really pushes it over the top.
This bag from bagonia was the inspiration for this week’s Schmetsy — I love the modern, feminine take on an old-fashioned doctor’s bag.

Row 2:
Owen bought me this bag from neikodesigns a few years ago for my birthday and it remains one of my favorites — I always get compliments when I carry it and it is incredibly well made.
I always like DrikaB‘s color and fabric combinations, and the Red Salander Wristlet doesn’t disappoint.
I couldn’t resist including a second bag from bagonia; it is just adorable.

Row 3:
I love the texture and detail on this Ninfea (water lily) bag from ninu.
While I do love little bags, I have a tendency to carry a lot of stuff and this Rabbit bag from artoncrafts seems large enough to schlep all my stuff and then some.
This mini-clutch in its de Stijl-esque fabric from Bagitarian would be equally cute on its own or carrying essentials in a larger bag.

Etsy Schmetsy: Cozying Up

Living in San Francisco, we’re all used to schlepping tons of layers around with us — I always have a pair of arm warmers in my bag and generally carry a scarf. While these lovely Etsy finds are always appropriate in San Francisco, for those of you who actually experience seasons, they will help ease your transition into the cooler weather in style.

Etsy Schmetsy: Brooklyn

Sorry this is late; we’ve jetset and are now jetlagged in Brooklyn, where we’re on vacation. But no week is complete without an Etsy Schmetsy on Wednesday. Brooklyn is full of crafty folks, so we thought we’d go local this week: all Brooklyn handmade sellers.

I am so excited that our artwork from Evelin Kasikov (who we featured a while back) arrived today. It is just as lovely as I had hoped — I can’t wait to get it on the wall.
