When buying anything handmade, I like to see the story that’s gone into making it. I don’t want a factory-made look! I want to see the character of the maker coming through, the strange concoction of colours, the quirky composition and the edges or seams that may not be quite right. Imperfection is part of a handmade products charm!
This quirky photo by pillowhappy really does it for me! The composition and the look on her face is so entertaining, and I love the sepia tone to the photo that gives it that weathered look! Check it out at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_6&listing_id=11372675
I love this pillow cover. All the colours and patterns…that feeling that lindylou2 has cut up a bunch of beautiful clothes and stitched them all carefully together! So so lovely! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=12770136
The loveliest thing about these prints is the mixture between the thick colours and simple black line drawings. NestaHome gives the buyer an opportunity to mix and match, which is ace because we all have individual tastes do we not?! Love it!
(family tree) How lovely is this dish?! It’s quirky and it isn’t circular! Whoever said dishes needed to be circular?! And best of all you can have it made personally for you. THIS is why I love etsy! Where else can such loveliness occur?!
Anyway, that’s just a few of the things that I hope state my point! How lovely and wonderful buying and selling can be when passed from one hand to the next, just like the olden days! Happy shopping!!
