When it comes to finding home accessories, there are so many resources.
Honestly, it can be VERY overwhelming.
So where do I go when I’m in search of a new item?
Simple = Etsy!
Now let me preface this by saying: I am not a spokesperson for Etsy. I mean wish I were! But, sadly, no, I am not. I’m just an avid creative constantly pushing myself [and our refuge from the storm]. Seriously, though, Etsy is the place to go, my friend. I have found so many “one of a kind” items that, well, I’ve kind of developed unhealthy feelings towards Etsy.
Are you listening, Etsy? Cause I am head over heels in love with you! Just kidding . . . [sort of].
Anyway, let’s do a little experiment:
- Please open an additional window in your web browser.
- Go to Etsy.com.
- Think of some household décor item you’ve been either searching for, pining for, or both.
- Type that item in their search engine.
- And voila! I bet you find one, or at least, multiple options for it.
Pretty cool, huh?! I know you might already know and love Etsy I like do, but I’ve noticed lately, when I’ve mention Etsy to some people, they have no idea what I am talking about!? Everyone MUST know about Etsy because it’s a wonderful blessing in a decorator’s world! And just in case you don’t believe me, here are some [not all] of the examples I have found for our place through Etsy:
I love, love, love wood stumps as side tables [guess it’s the Midwest in me] – I found this particular one at the Etsy shop: Real Wood Works!
You can never have too many metal trays. This one was just so “happy.” I bought it from the Etsy Shop: Aces Finds Vintage. I use it in our bedroom as a place to put all my perfumes.
I am about as avid of “Star Wars” fan as I am about anything vintage, so when I ran across this vintage “Star Wars” R2-D2 pillow on the Etsy Shop: Jet Set Vintage, I had to have it. [F.Y.I. – Dog was not purchased through Etsy 😉 but I love him just the same!]
