Etsy List: Pretty in Pink

'Pretty in Pink' Etsy List by H is for HomeWhen chosing vintage interior items for this Etsy List post, I realised that we don’t actuallly have anything pink in our own home. I think the last time I had any pink interior highlights was when I was in my teens. My bedroom walls were painted pink… with a purple & grey zig zag stripe – it was all very 80s!

I love the colour – at least the shades at the shocking, magenta and fuchsia end of the scale; the baby, powder or pastel hues – not so much. Think Elsa Schiaparelli, Penelope Pitstop… even Dame Barbara Cartland!

Are there any colours that you don’t use in your interior?

'You bug me' Etsy List by H is for HomeAre you afraid of creepie-crawlies? Do you suffer from entomophobia, apiphobia, arachnophobia or myrmecophobia? We can promise you that you’ll love our selection of vintage bugs in this week’s Etsy List.

From a colourful, vintage ladybird poster to insects suspended in a piece of Baltic amber. There’s nothing to fear here. But could you sleep soundly at night under a duvet covered in giant tarantulas?

'Bowled Over!' Etsy List by H is for HomeA bowl is… essential, useful, beautiful, tactile, sensual.

It’s probably one of the first things stone age man ever made. It carries water, it holds food, it is used to meditate, it is used in prayer.

It can be made of pottery, wood, wicker, metal, glass, plastic, or textile.

Here are some of our favourite Etsy Offerings.

Etsy List: Hell for Leather!

'Hell for leather!' Etsy List by H is for HomeLeather is one of the few materials – much like denim – that looks better with a bit of use & wear. It’s a great material for use in the home. It’s warm tactile and beautiful. We’ve blogged before about our bargain pair of vintage leather club chairs – one of our best buys ever!

We also have a leather sofa – essential when you have a big (often muddy) dog who thinks it’s his own personal piece of furniture. A fabric-covered sofa wouldn’t be able to cope with the beating!

Leather homewares – especially if it’s vintage leather – can be pricey. But so long as it’s kept waxed, polished, buffed and loved, it will last you a lifetime.

'Get your bake on!' Etsy List by H is for HomeAnother year, another series of Great British Bake Off. We never get fed up of following it – we’re hooked! We’ve already got a favourite baker and decided on the one we think will win.

Mel & Sue are a great double act and there’s such a chemistry between Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

We think the people who enter the competition are very brave. The heat, the pressure and the high standards and withering looks of the judges – no thank you!

Get your bake on!
