My Favorite Handmade ETSY Stuff

Updated on April 30, 2011

Things I love on etsy.com

I love browsing etsy; I can always find lots of things I want to buy. Here you will find some of my favorite things. Most are handmade, some are vintage. Lots are green, lots involve leaves and trees and flowers and all the other things I love. If I could, I'd buy them all! :)

**If you want to visit a seller's store, just click on the pictures.

Be Peaceful - Cable Brim Beanie with Embroidered Peace Sign

This is the first item I added to my Favorites on etsy. (I actually created my etsy account just so that I could add it!) I love things with peace signs and I love green, too, and I just thought this hat was so cute! This one sold out, but I believe the buyer made more.

If you click on the picture, it will take you to the artist's etsy store. She makes all kinds of warm knit things, plus some jewelry. :)

Vintage Art Glass - Blue and Green Bowl

This is the first thing I ever purchased at etsy. I needed something to put keys, loose change, etc into. It had to be small enough to fit on the shelf I wanted to put it on, but also match my décor. I love flowers and I love green and blue, so this was perfect. And the price was right, too. It has worked out great for our catch-all bowl.

This artist has a lot more vintage kitchen stuff available, as well as vintage toys and clothes and lots of other cool stuff.

Happy Daisies Painting

I really like paintings on canvas and I love flowers (especially daisies). I like the simplicity of this painting, as well as the color combination.

This artist has several other original flowery paintings for sale. You can also get magnets and notecards from her.

**And as a bonus, this seller donates part of her earnings to an animal charity.

Swirly Checkbook Cover

I was looking for a new checkbook cover and I found this one, with its great green & brown swirly pattern. I ordered it right away! I was worried that the ribbons would be flimsy, but they're not at all; it's very well made.

You can also get beautiful handmade fabric banners and garlands at her etsy store (just click on the picture).

Small Allium Table lamp

I think this lamp would look nice on a side table or hallway table. I really like the Allium flower design.

This artist has many other patterns like daisies, dandelions, cherry blossoms, butterflies, and more. They are all nice looking.

Fantasy Flowers Original Modern Oil Painting

Here is another painting on canvas. The colors remind me of the sky and clouds and trees - my favorite! It's all flowery and leafy and swirly, and I love it!

This artist has a huge selection of original paintings (click on the picture to go to her etsy store).

Bottle Cap Key Ring - Recycle

This is a cute little keyring with a great message - Recycle Reduce Reuse. Plus it has a tree on it and I love trees.

This artist recycles all kinds of small items into cute jewelry pieces, magnets, and key rings.

Tote Bag Set in Green, Brown, and Blue Retro Print Corduroy

I don't carry a purse or bag or anything, but this great looking tote and the included accessories is making me reconsider.

This artist uses a lot of reclaimed materials to make her bags, clothes, jewelry, and other accessories.

Live Simply - Original Painting on Canvas

I can easily picture this painting as part of my décor. I love the dark green and ivory colors together, and I love leaves. This painting has a bit of texture, almost leathery looking.

Most of her paintings make me feel happy and are of trees and flowers and polka dots and other things that make you want to celebrate life. :)

Brown Magnolia Embroidery Pillow Cover

It was hard to pick just one item from this seller's store. I love the way this pillow cover has an embroidered magnolia splashed across the front of it, which goes really well with the green linen.

I am bummed to see this item sold out, but there are many more fantastic embroidery designs at her store on all types of linens. (Click the picture to see her store).

Green Springtime Glass Plate

It's green, it has daisies, and it's glass...what's not to love? I can see this plate easily working in my house. I could keep candy on it, or put a candle on it, or leave it empty, or use it to serve snacks, or...

This artist has all kinds of fun, high quality fused glass art including plates, coasters, vases, and jewelry.

Upcycled Mint Green Jell-O Mold Lighting Fixture

What a great way to reuse one of those retro Jell-O molds! I think you could make this work in all types of rooms.

This artist has many other unique lighting fixtures made from various tupperware, mason jars, and cordial glasses. He also carries many vintage items, which you can browse by clicking on the picture.

Hardback Book Lamp

This is just a normal lamp that plugs into the wall, but it's made out of an old hard back book! I would love to have one of these on my nightstand.

The artist also has driftwood lamps and vintage items available.

Trio of Veggie Prints

I would love to have this print in my kitchen. I love the large bold vegetables and I would frame it exactly as it's shown in the picture.

The artist has other veggie prints, as well as hand sewn kitchen items and quilts.

House Numbers in Stained Glass

I have always wanted to have my house number done in stained glass above my front door. And once I buy a house, I'm going to do just that.

You can find lots of other funky original stained glass designs at her etsy store (click on the picture).

Happy Retro Spring Daisy Mugs

There's something comforting about old kitchen stuff from the 70's. The green, the daisies, and the vintage-ness of these mugs makes me really really want this set.

There are so many cool vintage gadgets, toys, kitchen things, neat old books, and many, many other one of a kind items at this store.

Hand Painted Daisy Glass Pendant

I don't really wear jewelry, but if I did it would be stuff like this. It has my favorite colors that remind me of the sky, clouds and trees, plus it's a daisy (my favorite flower) and it's made of glass (one of my favorite materials).

This artist has a lot of other great hand painted designs on rings, necklaces, and earrings.

Yellow Flowers Contemporary Oil Painting

All of her paintings are fantastic, but there's something I really love about the simple dainty flowers and swirls in this one.

Most of this artist's paintings are very colorful and use many different shapes. And if you need any more of an incentive, she also gives a discount to repeat customers. (Click the picture to see the seller's store).

Stained Glass Owl Candle Holder

I think this is just the cutest little guy. You stick a candle behind him and he glows! If I ever decide to take up collecting stuff, it will most likely be little owly things.

The artist has lots of other really pretty stained glass pieces as well as butterfly sun catchers, with proceeds going to charity.

Tall Bamboo Stalks - Vinyl Wall Decal

I think this stick on bamboo would look neat on a wall. And they say it just peels right off when you're tired of looking at it. It comes in pieces, so you can arrange it however you like.

You can find many interesting stick on plants, trees, and other patterns at this store, just click the picture.

Camera Strap - Peace

I've been thinking about getting a new strap for my camera. There are so many great ones to choose from, but I really like this peace fabric.

The artist has many patterns to choose from, and she even gives you the option to add a lens cap pocket.

Winter Earth Lights

I love the leaves and peace pattern on these candle holders, and she even uses real fern leaves! They resemble paper lanterns when lit.

In addition to candle holders and lights, she sells coasters, magnets, switchplates, and jewelry handcrafted with real flowers, leaves, and greenery.

Subway Word Art

This sign has a great message, and comes in a variety of colors.

It says:

"Remember when you go into the world keep your eyes and ears wide open. Be kind. Love one another and take care of each other. Tell the truth. Always do your best. Listen to the big people and the little people. Explore new paths and have fun. Know that you are loved like crazy. Give thanks for all of your blessings. Above all else, love and you will do wonderful things in the world."

You can get all kinds of other message signs at their etsy store (just click on the picture).
