Orange Crush: Etsy Finds

Glad you could make it to the second (and long awaited, I'm sure) installment of Orange Crush, a new collaboration between From the Right Bank to the Left Coast and Down and Out Chic. We're coming together, once a month, to chit chat about all things orange. If you missed the first installment, you can find it here and here.

Today, I've picked some favorite orange pieces found on Etsy. Now, if you're a regular Etsy goer, you know that simply typing a color into the search engine will regurgitate a bazillion options that you'll, oh so patiently, have to wade through. How I've narrowed it down to these few things, I couldn't tell you, but I'm sure I could make orange Etsy lists daily, if needed.

I'd like a scarf in this lovely yarn please. Any takers?

Many of you know Laura Trevey from around the blogosphere. Her work is cheerful and bold and I'm currently loving this orange flower.

Somebody please buy this so I don't have to. This necktie and collar combo is so cute and would look even better poking out of a cardigan or jacket.

I simply cannot get things typed into the old Blackberry quick enough. I need a journal lying around at all times. If you tell the seller "a story" you'll receive 20% off your order.

I couldn't resist throwing in another vintage clothing piece.

Finally, I know this bag doesn't fit into the my normal affordable range, however, it's just too beautiful to NOT share, and just because I can't afford it doesn't mean someone else might not be looking for a splurge. Isn't it GORGEOUS?

If you aren't sick of orange yet, you should take a gander at Alek's post on orange walls. It's pretty amazing. Oh, and if you have any suggestions for next month's Orange Crush, I'd love to hear them!

{The winner of the Artaissance giveaway will be announced tonight. It also appears as though I'll be choosing another winner for the Shabby Apple dress. So there will be two winners! Yippee!}

I don't think I've ever thought that orange could be so pretty! Lovely finds...and I'll take a scarf as well, if anyone is offering.

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

love the notebook and the handbag...

the southern hostess said...

So many great finds. I love the bag.

drollgirl said...

that little orange flower is GLORIOUS!!!

did i mention i have new beautiful orange curtains? please forgive if i did. they are kind of sheer, and when the morning sunlight hits them it makes it look like my place is on fire. but in a good way. and it makes my skin look WAY BETTER than it does normally. hahahahah!

so all i am saying is.....YAY FOR ORANGE! :)

Hanako66 said...

oooh that bag is so pretty!!!!!

I love that blouse too...great picks!

Jennifer said...

I love the hand made vintage journal!

Callie Grayson said...

oh, that orange bag is just swoon worthy!!!! a must have in my closet.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

The yarn is delicious! I have several orange scarves, never enough scarves.:) Love that blouse! Gosh, you are causing me to want to spend money.:)

Gabbi said...

Great oranges! I want a sailor shirt now...♥

Anne @ The City Sage said...

That journal is just adorable--I'm always finding cool old books but don't know what to do with them. what an inspired way to give them new life!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Haha, I can totally see you in that sailor's blouse! I'm generally kind of iffy about orange, but I think I'm warming up to it. In fact, I just ordered mismatching bikini pieces from J. Crew's ridiculous summer sale - pink and orange. We'll see how they look together!

The Cottage Cheese said...

I really, really, really want that journal! I'm a "list" girl, and although the notepad on my iPhone is great for on-the-go, at home I prefer to actually write things down the old-fashioned way. Love the orange crush series!
