My weekly Etsy Treasury of beautiful vintage and handmade gifts, jewelry, fashion accessories, art, collectables, home decor, and more from the Etsy marketplace

To Be Or Not To Be…

In two weeks the literary world will celebrate the life and work of William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death but I’ve decided to start the festivities a little early. And so I dedicated this week’s Friday Favorites collection to the Bard and created a treasury of unique Etsy finds inspired by the play, Hamlet. Perfect for book lovers, theatre lovers, actors, teachers and librarians, these wonderful literary gifts are sure to delight your favorite Shakespeare fan. You can also find lovely, handmade Shakespeare jewelry here in the C. S. Literary Jewelry Etsy shop.

Friday Favorites – Tick Tock

Daylight Savings Time is upon us and soon we will be turning our clocks ahead. This year, rather than focus on the hour of sleep I will be missing out on, I decided to think of the whole thing as more like time travel – a once a year opportunity to spring forward a hour into the future. And so, this week’s Friday Favorites collection is a Steampunk style collection of cool time – themed Etsy finds.

Friday Favorites – A Day at the Vineyard

I’ll be spending this weekend at a Holiday Craft Fair at the lovely Whisper Vineyards in St. James, NY. It’s C. S. Literary Jewelry’s last live event of the year and I am looking forward to meeting all the folks who will stop by our table, doing a little holiday shopping, and toasting the start of the holiday season with a glass of wine, (or two) and I hope to see you there!

Whisper-Fair

Today’s going to be a busy day, with lots of last minute preparations to make, but before I head off to put the finishing touches on my table for the fair, I thought I would get us all in mood for a weekend at the vineyard with a Friday Favorites collection of handmade gifts and goodies for wine lovers.

Friday Favorites – Bookish Art

My husband has been building me a new work space with a bigger work desk, better lighting, and some much-needed organization and storage. It’s not done quite yet but we have reached that point in the process where I am starting to think of how I want to decorate the new space. I’ve been exploring all the great book art and literary prints on Etsy trying to find the perfect decor and so I’ve decided to showcase some of my favorite pieces in this week’s Friday Favorites Etsy Treasury.

If you see something you like, click on the item to see it (or buy it) on Etsy or you can see the full collection here.

What do you think? Which of my Friday Favorites is your favorite? Which piece should go over my studio work desk? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Friday Favorites – Vampire Nights

Unleash your inner creature of the night with great vampire jewelry, art, and accessories for Halloween. I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together cool, literary outfits on Polyvore that were inspired by my favorite books and poetry. I named my latest look the “Mina Harker” after the heroine of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel, Dracula. Featuring a Dracula Book Purse by Novel Creations, an awesome pair of Gothic boots, and my Dracula necklace, earrings, and bracelet, this dark and dramatic outfit is perfect for book lovers and bibliophiles who love sinking their teeth into some classic horror.

 

Mina Harker

See my Mina Harker Dracula Outfit here on Polyvore.
