new listings…

just clearing out a few things in my closet. feel free to check them out on etsy! 

valhalla brooklyn bags…

etsy is a daily thing for me. it’s like going boutique shopping at your favorites spots, (well just in your pjs) except there is new stuff everyday. vintage, new, crafts, its all there. i admire designers who take on the challenge of making handbags. it’s not an easy thing, since hardware & cutting leather is it’s own animal! so, when i found the valhalla brooklyn line, my eyes were instantly pleased. the design of these bags are so functional & the leathers are so unique in terms of texture, that i had to write about them. i especially have a soft spot for the 5 pocket okinawa. it’s totally me…

my etsy stationary faves…

i am a huge fan of etsy & their support of indie shops, from clothing to paper goods. i specifically love looking at letterpress & stamped art.  it was quite hard to narrow it down, but these were my favorite works from these individual shops. enjoy!

Monica is…searching for owls.

Upon a recent visit to The Grove’s Anthropologie, I was so charmed by the current table setting. It was covered with beautiful colored glassware & plants that looked like they had been plucked out of a green house, but the owl theme was everywhere! I couldn’t help, but comb through Etsy for some owl inspiration of my own. I love all of their handmade goods plus it’s always great to support all of these talented artists! Links provided below…
