An Ode to Etsy

I am in love…with Etsy. I got a Pinterest account about 6 months ago, and noticed that a lot of the things I was ‘liking’ were from Etsy stores.

I had obviously filed this away mentally somewhere, as when I was looking online for crafty wedding ideas I  searched for ‘Etsy’ in the hope of finding some gems. Six hours later I emerged from the Internet rabbit hole I had plunged down (think Alice in Wonderland), with dozens of favourite shops, and a mental wish list into the hundreds of pounds.

I will be doing a few posts on my favourite Etsy sellers, as well as showing off a couple of things that I might have *ahem* bought for our wedding already. Before you say it, yes I am well aware my wedding is not for over 500 days…I was in an Etsy Frenzy and couldn’t help myself. I blame Apple. If they hadn’t invented the iPad then it wouldn’t be so easy to shop online. It’s a tenuous link I know, but I’m sticking to it, your Honour.

For those of you that haven’t already guessed, I’m more than a little bit obsessed with bunnies. Our wedding has a literary/wildflower thing shaping up, but I can’t resist the urge to throw in some rabbit motifs. I saw this gorgeous sketch on Etsy a couple of months ago and ‘pinned it’ for later.


Unfortunately it’s seller, Arty Didact (, has sold this item. However it has inspired me. Our table numbers are going to be double sided, and I think I may have to have a go at doing my own copycat version of this sketch for the back of them. My fiance probably wouldn’t be best pleased if I covered our whole wedding in bunny related images & items, but I can probably get away with a few subtle (ish!) rabbit-ty bits.

Once I have had a go I will post a pictures of the results, no matter how laughable my effort is!

Big love,

DIY Bride x
