    Etsy Find: Finally

    I have been on the hunt for a large-scale black and white horse photo for my bedroom for literally years. Finally, I found the perfect one. I wanted a close up on the horse’s face with either a black or white background – no visible landscape. Pomelorice has the one above. It’s exactly what I want. There’s just one problem. Their current printer isn’t capable of ┬áprint the above size. I messaged the shop and they are going to notify me when it’s available again. Currently you can get a 16″ x 23″ version for $105.

    Anthropologie for Less

    I ran across this large-scale Antelope Sentry print over at Anthropologie and it really caught my eye. Unfortunately, it’s also $2500. Yikes. So, off to Etsy I went to look for something similar – and bingo!

    I found this 16″ x 20″ antelope print for just $75. The Anthro version is quite a bit larger – 57″ x 45″ – but I’ve had luck in the past contact shops and asking about larger sizes.

    Etsy Find: Gemstones Print

    Watercolor is my absolute favorite artistic medium. I love the different techniques – from using rubber cement to resit the paint to salt to create texture. Unfortunately, I’m not that great at it. But Katie Vernon definitely is. I love, love, love this gemstone print from her Etsy shop. $25 for an 11″ x 14″.

    DIY Dreams: Giant Cross Stitch

    I was in Home Depot the other day and ran across the pre-cut peg boards and kinda wanted to buy one just to see what I could make with it. Now that I know I can use it make a giant cross stitch, I’m going to have to go back. Instructions and photo at Simply Mal.

    Etsy Find: Buttermilk Design Co.

    Macrame has been all the rage lately, showing up everywhere from artsy boutiques to Urban Outfitters. I love the texture of some of the wall hangings I’ve seen, but they are usually well out of my price range. Luckily, I found Buttermilk Design Co. They have some really beautiful, simple geometric designs at very reasonable prices. Above, $183. Below, $110.
