“FANTASY FOUND” by Laurie Shanholtzer

I painted this picture for a little girl's room. My hope is to encourage her gift of imagination~ here your friend is a wood nymph ~ your puppy is a dragon ~ butterflies are fairies and there is a unicorn peaking from behind a tree.~

Day in the Life: Scout and Catalogue

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Photo by Scout and Catalogue

Behind Scout and Catalogue’s dreamy marbled wallets and covetable leather bags is a woman with a vision – of secret beaches, sun-kissed skin and all-day siestas. Her name is Breanna, and though she’s based in Vancouver, Canada, her inspiration blossomed while living near the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Eager to learn more about her process and meet the woman behind the bags, we invited Breanna to take over Etsy’s Instagram last Wednesday as part of our #dayinthelife series. Check out her photos below, as well as the exclusive outtakes that didn’t make it to Instagram.

 Greetings from Vancouver! Today Breanna of @scout_catalogue is taking over our Instagram account to give us a peek into her #dayinthelife. #etsycanada #etsywholesale etsy
