Etsy Holiday Guide: Sfgirlbybay's Picks

For today's edition of the Etsy Holiday Guide, I have another guest editor! Sfgirlbybay sent along a big selection of her etsy favorites a few weeks ago, when we first began planning the guide. She has been so swamped with work that she has not had a chance to participate, and so I chose a few of her favorites! Don't forget to check out Poetic and Chic and Flutterbyblue.I love the work of matteart, by artist Matte Stephens. The site sells a selection of original art work, open prints and limited edition prints. The retro color pallet and whimsical subject matter are enchanting. The bear monster prints remind me of the illustrations in "Where the Wild Things Are." Personally, the above pictured NYC print is a favorite.

My next pick off of sfgirlbybay's extensive list of favorite artists is Sugarloop, a blogger favorite who has also been featured by design*sponge and Poppytalk. Bernadette Sipkes, a resident of New Zealand, produces limited edition screen prints. Many of these works are monochromatic and highly detailed. I want the green tropical bird and foliage for my kitchen.
The small goods from Quietdoing are simply adorable! I love the graphic print fabric wallets and the quirky record player adorned ipod covers produced by Tawny M, a resident of California. With 865 items sold, and 100% customer satisfaction, apparently I am not the only one in love!

The final shop I've chosen to feature off sfgirlbybay's list is Annechovie, which sells works produced by Anne Harwell. One of Harwell's favorite motifs is chairs, which she produces in both prints and stationary. Another favorite subject of Harwell is room protraits, including a lovely lavender living room belonging to designer Lulu Guinness.

I love Anne's chairs - her work is beautiful! What a lovely wall display they would make if framed together.
