Etsy Love :: Perfect in Pastel

Mar 31, 2015


ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR

With Easter right around the corner and Spring officially here (at least in spirit), my color palate is quickly changing to a bit of a softer tone.  Here are some favorite pastels that I’ve come across on Etsy lately.

I just adore the hot air balloon mobile.  How sweet would that look in a nursery?  Or as decoration at a bridal shower…or even wedding?  Darling.  And even though our family isn’t a “cat family” (ie: insanely allergy prone to cat dander) I can’t help but love these capnip bunnies.  Seriously.  They’re like little peeps but delightfully hand stitched.  And I love the little tags she’s added with her shop name…I love little added elements like that.

What about you?  Are pastels something you’ve found yourself leaning toward lately?

    Yes, I am loving pastels! Just picked up three new pastel nail polishes the other day. 🙂 Those pencils are SO cute!! Great finds.

    That's all so sweet for spring! The only pastel I really wear/lean towards are nail polishes. I love light blues and purples (and pinks..and greens…all the nail polish!)

    The pencils make me want to ditch my mechanical one and go old school.

    I pretend to be a nail polish girl. I wish I could be. But I chip the crap out of polish about five minutes into wearing it. Jealous of anyone that can handle the upkeep on them. Because i fail at it.
