Around this time every year I start wishing that my Portland apartment was a quaint, cozy cottage out in the middle of nowhere. My fantasy country home would have a big fireplace, a pie in the oven at all times, and all those charming little details that make country living feel special (Plaid blankets! Vintage kitchen tins! Mason jars everywhere!). Until I can make my country lifestyle a reality, I’m determined to bring some of that country charm into my urban living space, and Etsy is a great place to start. Click through to check out 10 pieces of home decor that will add some country vibes to whatever kind of home you have…

Once you move out of your college dorm room, it’s generally frowned upon to plaster your walls with crinkled “Animal House” posters. You can get around the stigma by putting your movie posters in ornate frames (which is what I did with my beloved “Spice World” poster) or you can show your love for your favorite films with artistic prints instead. I found 11 awesome movie posters designed by Etsy artists that will mix right in with all the other art on your walls. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out!
My little tea time routine involves brewing some vanilla chai, putting on some chill music, eating a square (or three) of dark chocolate, and flipping through a fashion magazine. It’s totally relaxing, but you know what’s missing? Mr. T glaring at me from the side of my teapot. Yep, that would really take the whole thing to the next level. [$18, Etsy]
Ahoy matey! It’s that time of the month. Why not celebrate it by putting this hunky pirate cloth pad in your undies and letting him guard your hidden treasure? Or not.

This is a “Playtime Belt Buckle” that’s currently for sale on Etsy. It is composed of a totally functional Etch A Sketch, and I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve never been so keenly aware of the erotic qualities of those little nobs before. Damn. [The Daily What]

Sick of having the same-old-same-old convo with your misogynist friends and neighbors? Tired of always having to explain to your nearest and dearest how your annoying feminism is an inflexible, static part of your political worldview? Then maybe you need to cut to the chase and get one of these “Feminist Killjoy” necklaces. Made by Etsy shop It Was Me, the Feminist Killjoy necklace gets right to the point and says what everyone’s thinking anyway. As the folks at It Was Me explain, “Do you stop watching television shows when they disrespectfully portray trans women? Did you tell your boyfriend he wasn’t getting any until he paid for half of your birth control? Do you resent rape culture with every fiber of your being? Well, there maaaaay be a chance that you are a feminist. Perhaps even a humorless one. A FEMINIST KILLJOY!” Plus, a portion of the proceeds go to Planned Parenthood and the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund. So you can put your feminist killjoy money where your feminist killjoy mouth is. [$32, Etsy]
I am impressed by the talent of this cake topper artist who crafted such a tiny, adorable baby face with perfect features. I also think that the person who actually eats the edible fondant baby at the baby shower should be reported to Child Protective Services. Munch, munch, munch. [Etsy]
It’s that time of year again: wedding season. If you’re a bride looking for the perfect hair accessory to top off your look, you probably know how many options are out there, and how many stores seem to think that the using the word “bridal” in a product description allows them to charge $300 for a glorified bobby pin. But don’t worry–this is why Etsy exists. Click through to check out 10 gorgeous one-of-a-kind designs, all handmade by Etsy artisans, all for $50 or less!
The #1 most embroidered phrase in history is probably “Home Sweet Home,” closely followed by “Bless This House” and “Live, Laugh, Love.” Those saccharine sentiments are nice and all, but we prefer our embroidery to have a little bit more edge, which is where Etsy comes in.
