little things studio

For some reason, I’ve never been a big quotation person. I had the hardest time picking a senior quotation for our yearbook, and from what I can remember, I went with something cheesy and seriously overused. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to appreciate a nice piece of poetry or a line from literature, mainly on days when I need something insightful or meaningful to pull me through.

These prints from Little Things Studio at Etsy combine beautiful patterns and designs with well-chosen quotations from well-known children’s books, literature and cultural figures. The yellow pattern above is so lovely, I would enjoy it on its own, but that little nugget of wisdom from Coco Chanel does add a special something. You can check out Little Things’ full collection of work right here for $20 each. I hope some of these can pick you up or give you a friendly nudge when you need them. xo, grace

  1. What a nice idea. My favourite one would definitely be the second poster. Nice find!

  2. Jessica B says:

    Ha! I used to work for a design firm that required everyone to have a quote under their headshot on the website. I hated it! Can you really choose one quote to define yourself? These prints are great. Nice find and fab designs Little Thing Studio!

  3. I just added these this shop to my favorites on Etsy. What a great find. Thanks.

    These prints are wonderful. I love the name of the studio and this gorgeous little shop. I love how the quote is not the main part of the design.

  5. Shannon says:

    Thanks for posting this…i’m planning on ordering two of the prints tonight! :)

  18. evaone says:

    Oh kate your so amazing.. you have full of ideas and i want to thank you for sharing it also with us.. God bless you.

  19. These are beautiful. I like that the qoutes are small and subtle. I generally find quotes to be over-the-top, but in this case, they suit the posters perfectly. Thanks for sharing.
