Here’s a kitschy sign that could make a statement in your kitchen and is satisfying my font fetish, which regular readers know crops up occasionally. I just love interesting fonts. This light turquoise wooden sign looks vintage but isn’t. Instead it’s made from scratch in Old New Again‘s shop on Etsy. If this color doesn’t [...] [Read More]

I have a thing for chalkboards and will paint something in chalkboard paint before I die I swear. So it’s no surprise that I fell for this lovely round blackboard with a bamboo shelf from Traub Design to kick off Top Three Thursdays on Etsy. Why go for the usual rectangle or square when you [...] [Read More]

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.

Take a gander at this. It is made with four different types of hardwood — Peruvian Maple, Satinwood, Birdseye Maple and Hard Maple — [...] [Read More]

Thursday is Thanksgiving so I’ll be focused on turkey and all the fixings. I didn’t want to miss the weekly Etsy love fest, though, because I missed it last week (sorry), and since Etsy is the perfect place to do your holiday shopping without all mall frenzy, I thought I’d help give you a jump [...] [Read More]

Love, love, love this pillow from Greene Stitches‘ shop that kicks off Top Three Thursdays on Etsy. I love the color and the little swirls. It’s 16″ X 16″ and is made from a cotton/polyester blend. If this was even remotely in my color palette, it would be gone and on its way to my [...] [Read More]
