etsy friday finds 03.22.13

There was no Tuesday Transfers post this week. Unfortunately, I was too preoccupied worshipping the porcelain throne after being poisoned by my favorite local pub. And, no. That is not the posh new way to say hangover. I was for real sick. Awful sick. Stay-home-from-work-for-two-days sick (I don’t make a habit of missing work, so that’s a lengthy absence for me). Lesson learned? I will never again eat fish and chips. Like, ever. Like, I just threw up in my mouth a little bit even thinking about eating such a thing again.

This week’s theme for Etsy Friday Finds is traveling around the world. My sister is currently in Santa Fe, NM, and leaves again a week after she gets back to travel several different cities along the West Coast for work. I’ll be at home watching our children, Maddie and Mulligan. That means for the next month I will be living vicariously thru the presents she buys me at each of her stops.

Not that she needs it, but here are 16 Etsy finds to get her into the traveling spirit. To browse all of my Etsy Friday Finds posts, click here and follow the thread. As always, clicking on links or images below will take you directly to the listings/shops on Etsy. Happy Treasury hunting.

tuesday transfers 02.19.13

Technically this is posting on Friday night. Let’s ignore this small technicality and pretend it is actually Tuesday and I posted this Tuesday Transfers blog on time because I’m awesome like that and in no way a horrible procrastinator. My bad.

I’d also like to pre-apologize for any typos this post may contain, as I’m in the middle of a heated battle between Leonardo, a pizza wielding Michelangelo, some TMNT villain with a purple cape, a cardboard box and a five-year-old.

With this new round of art photos, I decided to try something a little different than the plain backdrops I’ve been using up until now. How? By adding props.

First up is my go-to writing quote by Ernest Hemingway:

Write drunk; edit sober.

My sister and I have a vintage Underwood typewriter from the early 1900s that belonged to our great-grandfather, which served as a great background for this art piece. I’m on a coral/orange kick lately, so this block features orange paint with black transferred graphics. It’s available in my Etsy Shop here.

Keeping with the orange theme, I’ve tried out a new quote:

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

I created a vintage inspired orange background using a combination of handwriting and map brushes in Photoshop. I paired this wood piece with one of my globe bookends my sister gave me for a birthday present. That’s also my sister’s passport, because I’ve never left the country therefore I don’t own one. So, yes, this quote is not exactly indicative of my life.

UPDATE: this orange travel quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.

Here is a larger version of the same quote and background, minus the orange. This close-up offers up a better view of the vintage map background. As of this moment, these pieces aren’t available in my Etsy Shop, but I’ll be sure to update the post once I have them up in the shop.

UPDATE: this ivory travel quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.

Last one up today is back to the orange theme with a chevron pattern, featuring the Frank Zappa quote:

So many books, so little time.

I’ve already established I own a lot of books, so I had plenty to choose from to form a stack of books with covers in shades of only yellow or orange. I recommend all of them.

UPDATE: this orange chevron quote block is available in my Etsy Shop here.

That’s all the wood art transfers I have for tonight. As I mentioned, I’ll be sure to update this post with the Etsy listings as soon as I get them all uploaded. Happy National Margarita Day. Now please excuse me. Michelangelo needs my assistance.
