Holiday Gift Guide to Etsy

Just a little reminder....*********Dont forget, EL Vintage SALE  :-)  ******************

Holidays are in full swing and what better place to shop than Etsy.  There are so many amazing artists on this incredible website. I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you.

Thief&Bandit is Amie Cunningham, a woodcarver, designer, and artist by way of Canada and now living and working in Richmond, VA. All Thief&Bandit fabrics are handprinted and all goods handmade with care in her Richmond studio. 

Incredible little shop.  Love all their items but this scarf is to die for.  Scarves are such an essential accessory to looking the part. 

Alice is a designer and illustrator living and working in London, England. With a love of the hand drawn and beautiful, graphic elements she produces illustrations based on the natural world. Birds, animals, landscapes, and geometric patterns feature strongly in her work.

Her art is so magical.  I love it all and I hope you do too!

A native of Prague, Czech Republic, Marketa Psenickova received a degree in accessory design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduating, she began a line of edgy yet classic handbags and Marketa New York was born.

I have never look at a shop and said i want everything but I do.  Every single clutch, pouch that she has for sale.  PLUS the prices are so reasonable.

Maybe because of her gentle influence - and nostalgia over remembering her knitting Lopi, Fair Isle and Arran sweaters that were all the rage in the Seventies as well as my teenage punk rocker black mohair sweaters - She finds knitting and making clothes sublimely comforting. She has been knitting for friends and family for over 25 years.

Check out her photos, her items, her everything....such beautiful items all around and the most beautiful thing is she is from Scotland :-) 

Metalista is hand constructed jewelry made by Samara.
Her background is in Interior Architecture from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She enjoys working with simple geometric shapes and color. She tries to translate that into graphic wearable pieces that people will enjoy and get tons of wear out of.

Her jewelry is so architectural and simplistic.  I love it all and I adore that majority is brass. 

I love her artwork.  There is such humor and delight in every piece.  The dog print is my favorite.  It itself brings back such fun memories of my childhood and how fun it was to do this in the dark with just one little light. :-)

Cathy loves working in multiple disciplines, and  strives to use local and eco-friendly materials whenever possible.  Her art blog: www.habit-of-art.blogspot.com
She posts new work on my blog every week. You can also find artist interviews, tutorials, and lots of great art from Etsy artists. AND she runs art giveaways from time to time.

I adore this artist with all my heart.  You must own one of her amazing pieces.  I just love her head and how she thinks.  Its incredible.

Her work is so fun.  I love bows so very Chanel in every way and to make them colorful puts the icing on the cake.

ENJOY these amazing sellers.....more to come.  
Happy Shopping!!!

A Little Slice of Heaven For Men Especially.












I was so thrilled to have been introduced to this little gem of a restaurant located in NYC.  Its called FREEMANS.  Its at the end of Freemans alley.
All I can say is PERFECTION in every way possible to the food, to the decor, to the flowers and even the beautifully eclectic crowd that it attracts.








And thats not even all of it, at the entrance of the alley, there is a mens clothing store called
Freemans Sporting Club.  They make three piece suits that I would die for if I was a male. :-)
The whole experience there reminds me of the movie, A River Runs Through It by director Robert
Redford.   Have you seen it?  If not, rent it, its amazing.






AND to top that off, they have a mens barber shop called: F.S.C. Barber




Heaven, a little slice of heaven.....So if you are ever in NYC, go visit this restaurant and its accompanying barber shop and mens clothing store.   You will not be disappointed at all.

Have a wonderful weekend all! Kisses. xxxx
