Top Three Thursdays

on
I know poufs aren’t “new” as a fad, but I’m still loving them and just wish I had the right place for one in my home. I also am intensely jealous that these little numbers are all hand-knit since I am a knitter and clearly (in theory) could make one of these — except I’m [...] [Read More]

Willowy Welcome

on
We often forget our doors as a place for decor except at the holidays — at least I do. It’s too bad really because the door is the first spot people see of your home or apartment. Why not send a message of welcome and warmth? This door basket at Farmhouse Wares, a favorite web [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays on Etsy kicks off this week with a wooden wonder. I am amazed in general by what people can do with wood but I am especially impressed by those who can turn wood.

Posters have come a long way and can be an inexpensive [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

Today is typography day at Top Three Thursdays on Etsy. Why? Because I’m a font freak and I just felt like it. I just love old signs and letterpress stuff and think letters are art unto themselves. So here’s a sampling in no particular order of a variety of Etsy goodies in case you’ve got [...] [Read More]

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

on
Here’s a use for wall decals I haven’t seen before: using them to create a frame for a mirror. This brilliant idea comes from Shanna Murray, an artist and stylist who also makes illustrative wall decals. Regular readers know I’m a fan of decals and that I’ve used a few in my apartment (and they really [...] [Read More]
