friday's fabulous finds...vintage-inspired finds for the home

Hi friends! It's Friday...what better time to bring back my Friday's Fabulous Finds posts? This week I'm focusing on some of the great home decor you can find on Etsy...not much more rhyme or reason to it than that, just things that are speaking to me at the moment. I noticed after the fact that most of it is vintage-inspired. Funny story...someone who doesn't know me very well asked me last night if I like vintage. I just laughed and said "Do I like vintage??" I didn't know what else to say, for some reason it just struck me as funny. Because I looooove vintage. Anyway, check out these fun finds and their lovely shops on Etsy.

set of three suitcase tables, by lovenostalgicwhimsy

Somehow these vintage suitcases have almost managed to take on a life of their own! They are so whimsical and sweet. I almost want to name them and make them my pets. But I would settle for using them as end tables instead.

This pillow is just so happy and cheerful, I can't get over it! Plus it combines my favorite turqoise with yellow, a happy color I'm incorporating into my living room accessories this spring.

Oh my. Vintage. Blue. Original hardware. Need I say more?

I can't get enough of linen these days, it seems. Loving the deep turquoise print on this one.

These banners kind of make me swoon. I wouldn't need an event or reason to display them. They're just plain cute and I'd display them everyday.

This is the perfect spring accessory for my dining room table. This one is created by Jen, who blogs over at Sanctuary Art. Jen was one of my very FIRST friends in blogland. I've been so happy to see her expanding her already flourishing artistic business by selling on Etsy and I love giving her a shout-out, not only because I think her runner (and her whole shop) is fabulous, but because I consider her a friend. :-)

There you go...feast your eyes and your wallets on this loveliness. Happy Spring!

  5. It's great to see all of these vintage inspired items and to have my banners included. Thanks so much!
    I've fully given into my love of vintage recently and finally opened a vintage shop on etsy so that I can openly and actively indulge the compulsion! Stop by it you like at

  6. Hey, e-mail me so we can chat.. there's no e-mail attached to your comment! We so have to talk!

  7. I just love me some etsy! And that pillow is insprining me to dig through my pile (piles!) of scraps to come up with a fun pattern...sort of like a mini crazy quilt. :-)

  8. OK, I am so loving turquoise and yellow together! I use those colors together all the time in my paintings and the pillow is beautiful. The vintage luggage tables, adorable! And the end table, stunning. I just love all of your selections.


thank you for commenting, dahling! I can't wait to hear what you have to say. :-)
