Favorite Finds: Etsy Style

Shades of Pink & Gray

I'm currently finishing up a logo design for a client and I am loving the color combo of pink and gray that we chose. It's just gorgeous together. I'll show you the logo when it's finalized (nearly there!), but for now some favorite finds in shades of pink and gray.


urban cartel: lip bowl
beridan naturals: bath salts
the bauble department: pyrite necklace


factory 21: pendant lamp
margaret vera: leather cuff bracelet
belalulu: vintage stool
blackbird tees: women’s equal tshirt

Take a moment to visit these shops. I don't think you'll be disappointed. They are all small, independently owned and offer either handmade or vintage items. The best thing about etsy is you'll find shop owners who strive to please their customers and offer the kind of service you deserve when you're spending your hard earned money. I know it's early to think of the holidays, but buying from small business owners is one of the best way you can give your gifts more meaning.

As you probably know, I also have a shop on etsy- Bates Mercantile Co.   One of my recent customers was Margaret Vera. That's their leather cuff above.  I was lucky enough to design a shop header/banner, with a bohemian feel. It was easy using their beautiful product shots.

If you have an online presence and you need a banner or header designed (or a logo or other branding collateral), keep me in mind.....ok?


What a whirlwind day. It went by in the blink of an eye. So fast, I didn't even get a Muse post done. Which would be fine, except it was my Dad's birthday. I went over to 10 Tobey last night and we all celebrated on the porch, complete with a cake that my sister made.  My great nephew Cayden helped present the cake with its extremely large taper candle to 'great grampy'.  [Note to Mom: buy birthday cake candles.] A good time had by one and all.  The shrimp wasn't bad either. Happy Birthday Dad! A day late and a dollar short, but the sentiment is the same. Love you (despite the fuzzy picture)!

Hope you're having a great Wednesday. I'll do the same. It's crisp, but the sun is shining! Enjoy.

Ciao for now,
