Abode Style Week 2: Pinterest & Etsy

Today is week 2 of Abode Style!  
Today's theme is your Pinterest/Etsy finds and how you have incorporated them in your home!

For me, Pinterest and/or Etsy items are the best way to personalize your home.  Some of my favorite pieces are ones I have created or had custom ordered.  For example, Marco's 2nd anniversary gift.  We were still in the process of decorating our home and trying to figure out ways to make it ours.  I contacted The Keep Calm Shop to have her custom make two prints for him.  She was very easy to work with and I loved what we came up with.  
Yes, on the chair is says our last name just like if we were on a movie set!

As soon as you walk into our apartment I have a collage wall.  Almost everything on there is from Pinterest or Etsy with the exception of out moose head.

Love this Georgia painting via here
We also have one hanging over our keys by our front door with the state of California and a heart over LA.

I had to try this and it's okay.  It is a lot harder than it looks because with one false move with the hair dryer wax will go everywhere.  You can check out the how to here.

I love this print via here.  I have been known to give this print as a wedding gift in the couples colors in a pretty frame. It is a hit!  

What are you favorite crafts from Pinterest?  Who is your favorite Etsy seller?
