Top Three Thursdays

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]

It’s back to school time, and while I don’t have any wee ones anymore, I do think these washable, eco-friendly sandwich bags in the Silver Bobbin’s shop on Etsy are what I should be using for my own lunch. Maybe I wouldn’t use the hungry hippo print — or maybe I would — but the [...] [Read More]

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 [...] [Read More]

Called the Giddyup Stool (because it resembles a saddle a little bit?), it’s made from steel and wood but [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays on Etsy kicks off with a fabulous chair from Wild Chairy (love that name). In my post-work world, I am a furniture — particularly chair — restorer, who takes sad, dilapidated, vintage chairs and such, and with a little paint and fabric transforms them into total wonderfulness. This chair here, which I [...] [Read More]

I am in serious need of a spring pick-me-up. The weather here in the Northeast has mostly been in the 40s and 50s with rain, after the winter from Hell. I am desperate for even 65 degrees at this point. So I was drawn to color this week, as is clear from this first pick [...] [Read More]

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it — yes, it’s true — and as a favor to help those of you who present your mothers with gifts (and if you don’t, well, I guess you like to live dangerously), I’m dedicating this week’s Etsy round-up to some gift ideas that could work (or [...] [Read More]

Each table is unique and made to order, so color and wood may vary slightly. The table is 3 feet long and 30 inches [...] [Read More]
