I’m still a fervent Etsy fan — do you still shop there? Two of my favorite recent acquisitions hailed from small, lovely Etsy boutiques: this pillow (now sitting in a shadowed corner of my writing studio) and these Easter tokens, which I will be filling the children’s Easter eggs with this year. They took awhile to arrive but were well worth the wait, with the sweetest family-oriented activities engraved on them. Buy now and tuck away for next year — they will be a future gift to yourself!
Below, some additional — fabulous — Etsy finds for home and self. I was especially excited to see this new clean body serum from a fellow D.C. creative I just recently had the pleasure of meeting for dinner. She is passionate, smart, funny, and I’m so impressed with the fact that she’s launched this limited-edition, small-batch body serum, which she describes as: “An uplifting blend of rosemary, lavender, and mint essential oils in a decadent base of jojoba and barbary fig seed oils. Well suited for all skin types. All ingredients direct sourced from small farms in the United States.” Maggie is an expert in sustainable beauty so I implicitly trust her and this product!

Not seen above, but worth a mention: 1) you Magpies have been loving this 1984 sweatshirt (heyo, fellow 84 babies!); 2) I discovered these fab boucle pillow covers via Martha Stewart and they give that contemporary, minimalist chic look at a great price; 3) I’ve found many vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces via Etsy — love items like this hand-painted tole planter for a lived-in, collected home; 4) one of my friends recently bought these chinoiserie panels for her daughter’s nursery — such a good price for the aesthetic!
