Top Three Thursdays

This handmade ceramic vase with sgraffito drawing from Luster Wear caught my eye while trolling through Etsy‘s fabulousness to find goodies for you for Top Three Thursdays. I love its subtle color — I’ve been having kind of a purple and lavender thing recently — and the glaze, all of which is apparently created through multiple […]

Top Three Thursdays

In honor of all things Mad Men, mid-century wonderfulness is today’s Top Three Thursdays theme on Etsy. Kicking off the fest is this cute upcycled mid-century nightstand. Liz of LizK Designs painted this little nightstand a bright teal and added a new solid brass drawer pull. The nightstand has a roomy drawer that is perfect for […]

Blue Wonderfulness

Stopped in my surfing tracks when I saw these gorgeous ceramics on Design*Sponge (fabulous design blog if you don’t know it) from Elephant Ceramics. Just love, love, love the blue colors. So many subtle variations on the shades, don’t you think. Michele Michael creates these wonders when she’s not a prop stylist for the likes […]

I fell in love with this unusual curio bowl carved from black walnut found in the Etsy shop of Gray Work Designs. I just love the shape and sheen of this. I want to reach out and touch it. Added bonus: the wood is sustainably harvested. The bowl, which apparently is available in other woods […]

Top Three Thursdays

Time for the first Top Three Thursdays post. Let’s see what Etsy is up to in 2011! This rustic sugar and creamer by Blue Ridge Southern Potteries caught my eye right away. I love the colors, the unusual shape, the asymetrical angles — just all of it! Price is a very reasonable $38.50. And if […]

Our Anthropologie Fix

Stopped by Anthropologie to see what was what and fell in love with a bunch of these cups. While I’m mostly a mug kind of gal, these cups made me consider other options. They had me at the design and colors. Love them. All. What about you? Any grab your fancy? They run in the […]

Top Three Thursdays

Today’s first choice on Top Three Thursdays is meant to show anyone who thinks Etsy is just for craftspeople making crocheted items the real breadth of what’s on this fabulous website. Take a gander at this. It is made with four different types of hardwood — Peruvian Maple, Satinwood, Birdseye Maple and Hard Maple — […]
