Etsy Crush: Herman Marie
There are many wonderful things on Etsy, but every once in a while we stumble upon an extraordinary gem that makes our heart flutter. Today we'd like to share with you our latest crush on Etsy, Herman Marie.
Herman Marie puts the, well, every letter in CUTE. The shop features hand-painted wooden carvings (mostly of sweet creatures) with the most blissful illustrations -- simple but reminiscent of a faraway (maybe French?) countryside. Not sure why this style reminds us of France, but they're produced right here in the USA so that's pretty special, too!
Our favorites in the shop have to be the poison bottles -- they just makes us want to give them a big hug. Something tells us the poison inside isn't too bad, right?
And the pills!
And the hearts!
And the his & hers!
We can't stop looking through this shop. Care to see more? Visit the Herman Marie shop here, and check out the owner's second shop My Grey Sky, a beautiful collection of sculptures with muted tones and a slightly more morbid character line-up. We love it!
