I featured womens' style last week, so this week I thought it only fair to look at what Etsy had to offer for vintage mens' style.
Vintage Gray Plaid and Stripes Silk Tie Set - Mousetrap Vintage
Vintage Men's Brown Wool Car Coat - shopgoodgrace
Vintage Herringbone Fedora - Gothabilly13
I can totally imagine Don Draper wearing that fedora. Tune in next week to see what direction I think of next for Mad Men Monday style.

"For the past ten years I have been designing and making fabulously feminine knitwear and accessories and have been lucky enougth to win a stand at London Fashion Week, as well as having my designs featured in many National newspapers and magazines.
Most of my collections are short runs or one offs to which I sell online as well as wholesale to boutiques around the U.K."
And the results truly are fab. What caught my eye were these knitwear corsages. I love the depth and color. The knit sweaters like the one below are also lovely too.

The first shop is Valentina Design based out of Florida. She creates prints with inspiring images and sayings. I love the color choices and bold designs. You can't help but feel happier after seeing these.
Something Good is Going to Happen
Gratitude is the Open Door to Abundance
Funky Birds and Tree
The next shop is Joeseppi, a shop based out of Portland, Oregon with a message I can get behind: the Victory Garden of Tomorrow. Using different print methods, he creates homefront propaganda posters for the 21st century. I like it!
Recycling is Reusing
Sink That Carbon

Can you dig it? I can. If these prints struck a chord with you, let me know in the comments below. See you tomorrow!

I was drifting off to sleep last night reviewing my day when I realized oh crap. The kiln. You see, for some ungodly reason my brain decided today was Friday, the last day of the current session and the day the kids glaze their work to go back into the kiln. The kiln wasn't quite done yet Wednesday and I quickly did math in my head and realized my kids wouldn't have anything to glaze. The horror.
And then my brain realized today is Thursday. Duh. Brain, why have you forsaken me?
Speaking of ceramic art, I've decided to go through my inventory and post some more older work to get some room for the NEW work I have going on in the studio! Ovenware, mugs, tumblers, yay!
Look for these items (and more crocheted items like scarves and dishcloths) to go up this afternoon. While you're here, scroll down to the next post and check out the seller I featured today.
