Go green!

Hi there!

I should admit that I'm a big fan of Etsy - the place of incredibly beautiful handmade items and vintage. I can walk around on Etsy for all day, admiring the color decisions, skillfully made ​​photos and just enjoying all the beauty that people can make with their own hands.
Unfortunately, I rarely have time to enjoy this beauty. But in recent days I realized that this is exactly what I was missing for a creative mood and a self-confidence, as an artist.
That's why I decided to add a new blog category in which I would like to share with you my findings from Etsy, which inspires me and which are totally in my wish-list :) Hope you'll find something interesting for yourself too!

Today's theme is green. I actually never thought that I like this color and green color shades. But about a year ago I start finding some beauty in it. As I think all items made in green have some freshness. Not that freshness that gives blue color or white. The freshness of grass, leaves on the trees, plants, etc.. I think this is a reason why  this color is so good for home decor - it can bring some leafy and nature notes in your place.

This fabric coiled basket can add a juicy note to your dinning area.
I think that the fruits in a green bowl looks so much mouth-watering, fresh and juicy than fruits in a grey or yellow bowl, for example, so you just want to take one and it eat it right now!

Alpine stole


I'm back from all that Christmass and NY holidays and started working again, though it was hard :)

I have a one new featherweight lace stole in my shop. It was made with merino wool/Tussah silk blend in a magic turquoise color.
