I am constantly searching for beautiful, functional things. To me, beauty is deeper than simply a visual quality — it comes from history and creative process. Whether it is a serendipitous vintage find that allows me to imagine another time and space, or a treasure created by a soulful maker with a story I connect to and am inspired by, here is where the joy lies. The endless discoveries of vintage gems and independent makers is what makes Etsy one of my greatest loves.
I’ve compiled some looks with this inspiration and philosophy in mind.
