Literary Inspirations: My 10 Favourite Etsy Stores
I love the concept of small, often home based, crafters and businesses finding a global market for their products. Etsy Marketplace lets them do just that. If only I had crafting skills, of any kind, I’d definitely exploit the Etsy phenomenon. Instead I love to browse the site to see what’s available - and admire the sheer creativity of the store owners.
In my hours of window shopping I’ve come across so many literary inspired products that are drool worthy. Today I’m going to shine light on my 10 favourites by sharing them with you.
Steve Hansen Ceramics creates really unusual mugs, ice-buckets, casserole dishes etc. which feature literary heroes like Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. I love the grungy effect. Visit their store
Scarfs and Apparel
I’ve come across loads of literary based clothing sites but many are over designed and unwearable. In direct contrast ThornfieldHall produce understated scarfs and t-shirts that feature quotes from various classic novels like Alice in Wonderland or Pride and Prejudice and totally wearable.

Writing Tips: 10 Most Pinned Articles On Writing From My Pinterest Feed
What makes people pin articles on Pinterest? Normally it’s because the content is fantastic or the picture is a “bobby dazzler” as we say in England. But what makes one article wildly popular and others, of equal quality, overlooked? I wish I knew (I’d be worth a pretty penny or two) but in all honesty it’s a mystery to me, and yet it’s a great gauge of the popularity of the content.
For the last year I’ve been squirreling away high quality content on writing and publishing, and storing my little nuggets of gold in Pinterest. I’d wondered which of all these gems were most popular, as identified by repins, but until recently there were few ways to find out. Then those lovely bods at Pinterest launched their Analytics a program that delves into statistics of Pins. So now I know which of the pins my followers like best and can share them with you.
