Etsy Finds in My Sewing Room

I love Etsy.  Sure, they've had their problems and have gone through their share of controversy and changes. It is not a perfect company.  But, many artists have had the opportunity to share and sell their art in this global marketplace who may not have had other venues to turn to.  When buying something for myself, or for gifts, I try to buy handmade.  I turn to Etsy more often than not.  There are some truly talented, creative, and inspired artists out there.

I have purchased a few items for my sewing room from those artists.  The three flower photographs came from Photos by Chipperfield.  Teresa is such a talented photographer and you can also find her photos on pillow covers, tote bags, tapestries, and more.

UPDATE:  Teresa is having a spring giveaway on her blog, Poppy Place Pdx!  You could win a photo of your choice!!  Be sure to check out her blog and Etsy shop today! 

The frames for the photos came from The Painted Lady. This shop has a large selection of frames in all sizes and finishes.  It was hard to narrow down the choices because I loved them all!

I needed a new ironing board cover.  I know I could have made one, but sometimes I would just rather let someone else do it!  This one came from Pomegranate Place. They also sell fabric and you can purchase a premade cover or choose one of their fabrics for a custom one.

You can't buy this sweet thing from Etsy!  Shylee and her mom have moved in with us and she likes being in my sewing room as much as I do.  She got a sewing machine for Christmas, so we're working on making room for her table and supplies along with Erin's machine and supplies too! I don't know how this will turn out, but I'll let you know ;)


  1. Teresa's floral photography is stunning as is her other work!
    This post reminds me that I need to make myself a new ironing board cover :)
    Shylee is so sweet. Happy to hear she's interested in sewing!

  2. Hi A. :)

    WOW!!!! Thanks so much for the big shout out, you are a wonderful Sweetie :)

    I love how you have framed the photos :)

    With Shylee & Erin & you in the sewing room I can see you guys starting a fun business together :) The joy of working along side of loved ones who are as interested and excited by the work you do must be amazing :)

    Hope your week is off to a lovely start, cheers, T. :)

  3. Love your new ironing board cover...what great fabric!
