Etsy finds: Discovering artists

As I’ve mentioned in the past, Etsy is such a great resource for all things handmade.  I love discovering new niche vintage collectors and artists.  Three artists and their paintings have recently caught my eye:

Greg Hargreaves does a fantastic job depicting abstract landscapes.  You can find Greg’s work via his etsy shop HargreavesArt

Borina Mahailovska has a great collection of abstract figurative art.  Using mostly monochromatic palettes, these prints would add a touch of modern to any space.   You can find Borina’s work via her etsy shop here.

Clare Elsaesser’s paintings are a ray of sunshine.  Her use of vibrant colors and feminine energy would light up any room.  You can see more of Clare’s work via her etsy shop ClareElsaesser

Etsy finds: Vignette ideas

Aristotle eloquently said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

A well-styled vignette encompasses a small gathering of individual pieces, all beautiful in their own way, coming together to form a scene to give warmth and personality in a space.

For now, I’ll give some ideas of individual pieces that make up a well-styled vignette.  No need to splurge in this department, you’d be surprised at the inventory in thrift stores, etsy,  and craigslist.  Here are a few items from various etsy shops (links to each shop below) that can be inter-changable for various vignettes:
