I’m excited to continue a little tradition I established two years ago, to collaborate with a handful of my favorite Etsy shops to bring a giveaway of handmade art, decor, and accessories to my readers to celebrate small businesses and artisanal makers that create some of the most unique products and gifts out there. This year’s giveaway is full of modern pieces for the home that caught my eye over the last year. From a glass French press to the organic shapes of gold-rimmed bowls, the subtle details in these items are beautiful reminders of what makes handmade items so special. Learn more about the shops that are participating in this giveaway below, and enter to win seven products – a French press, salt and pepper shakers, a calendar, and three art prints!
