As part of a series called 5 Easy Pieces, we’ll be gathering our favorite upcycled, re-purposed, vintage, and handmade stuff from around the web for you to buy or make yourself. So stay tuned for quick lists of 5 must-haves and get ready to wish you had thought of that.
We love the duel colors in this hand block printed pillow. The ogee design is hand-stamped with a medium gray and a sunny yellow ochre onto white linen to create the sunniest of patterns. For printed pillow cases and more, visit Etsy.com/shop/giardino?auto=format.
The Perfect Tote
A light and breezy tote bag is just the accessory to get you through the warmer months ahead. The handmade linen tote is fully lined and has a large zippered pocket. We love the use of water based inks and its lived-in patina. To see more chic totes, visit Etsy.com/shop/JaneForrester?auto=format.
Dramatic Dinner Napkins
Dinnertime never looked so dramatic. With the help of these white and dark navy printed napkins, you’ll want to use these Bangkok-inspired napkins again and again. Style your dining table by visiting Bestill.supermarkethq.com.
Handmade Card Set
Inspired by traditional textiles and architecture worldwide, Katharine Watson’s designs make a beautiful gift. Each card is individually block printed on recycled paper. And buy a second set because you may want to keep this set of five recycled paper cards for yourself. To find more artistic hand printed stationary, visit Claywoodandcotton.com.
