Etsy Love: Green Days


Hello all you darlings!
And Happy March to you! March means spring and I can't wait for spring to show it's beautiful and blossoming face around northern Sweden, although admittedly there is some time left before it shows up.

Today I want to talk about Etsy (again).
I've mentioned my love for Etsy before (herehere, here and here). Last time I mentioned Etsy I made an "Etsy Love" post where I introduced you to two of my favourite Etsy shops. I figured this could be a good recurring type of post. So welcome to this second instalment of Etsy Love.

Today I will talk about two more of my favourite Etsy shops. As I said last time I think the idea of Etsy is brilliant and I adore the uniqueness of things that can be found there.



The first shop is the illustrator Stephanie Fizer Coleman's Etsy shop The Fox and the Teacup.
I have got three prints of hers, one that she very kindly reserve listed for me. Stephanie's art is whimsical and dreamy. There is an element of nature in her sweet prints, and they hold hidden narratives that you gladly let your imagination conjure. Stephanie's shop has stationery that any letter-writer would love to get some ink on.

Stephanie is super helpful, and very kind. The print she reserve listed for me was one of her old ones, that I had seen but that she didn't sell anymore. However upon asking her about it she promptly said we could work it out, which was incredibly sweet of her. She's also very professional and delivers her prints in an impeccable state.

You can find Stephanie's Etsy shop here. Her Facebook page is here, and her own website with her wonderful portfolio can be found here, and her instagram is @stephfizercoleman.





The second shop I want to introduce to you is the Etsy shop Swinging Chicks.
Swinging Chicks shop make hand made dresses that are vintage and mod inspired. All the dresses have a retro design inspired mainly by the 50's and 60's. This wonderful green A-line dress that I am wearing stole my heart within an instant. It's a perfect springtime dress, but as I live so far up north on our Globe, I had to wear it indoors, as spring has not yet come to us. I love the fact that the dress looks like a real vintage mod dress from the 60's. The green colour is gorgeous but you can choose another colour if you don't like the green.



Truth be told I want at least a handful of their lovely designs, but I decided to try them out with one dress first. And I am definitely getting more dresses from them! The quality is great, the sewing is done in a neat and clean way. The details are all there and I couldn't have been happier with it. It is a little too big for me in the waist, but as I chose one of their sizes (and not my custom measurements) that was to be expected.



They ship worldwide from Spain, and the making of the dress and shipping within Europe was very fast. I have now got my eyes on one of their red dresses with scalloped detailing.




Both shops are favourites of mine and this post was in no way sponsored. I just like to share great art and shops with all of you!

Have a beautiful rest of the day!

Much love,

  3. Oh no--I submitted a comment and I don't think it went through! I wanted to tell you that because of this post, I bought a print from The Fox and the Teacup. (I got the raccoon reading a book!)

    And I think you look absolutely divine in this dress. What a beautiful shade of green! And I love the detail at the back!

  5. This dress is so cute! It's amazing to be able to get it in different colours, or even custom made. It'll be a great one to wear outdoors once the weather gets more spring-like in Sweden! I also checked out the Fox and the Teacup, and first, the name of the shop is perfect, secondly, the prints are definitely cute and interesting. I could see one with a character carrying a pile of books on my own shelves :D

  8. Etsy is the absolute best! I find myself spending entirely too much time window shopping (and actual shopping) on there. Haha. Everything is so unique, it's wonderful to be able to support small - single person businesses! Your dress is soooo pretty on you! It makes me think of spring instantly! I am definitely checking out Swinging Chicks, now. :)

    I hope you have a lovely weekend, Mona!
