Hello, everyone! It's Wednesday again. Time sure does fly when you're having fun and especially when you're a blogger trying to keep up! I think I've done a fairly good job and not going AWOL for more than two weeks, right? I don't have a lot a down time with my regular job (plus, I'm a sleeper--gotta get that rest), but never fear! Your Etsy browser doesn't give up. This week I decided it was time for a detour to some home decor! I'm in a decorating mood right now, but I usually am anyway--just a little more so at the current moment. Anyway--enough of my yabbering. Enjoy these pieces!
Item #1 is from GotWoodWorkshop
I think these chevrons are a really neat piece. They're minimal, but the wood grain adds a nice detail to them. The maker pays close attention so the grain matches up and is centered, ensuring a smooth transition between sides. Worried about the color? Don't be! You have a choice of 5 equally beautiful colors! You can can the arrows pointing up, down, left, or right, so make sure to specify at check out.
Item #2 is from BurlgirlCreations
This unique piece would be awesome in any house near a beach, lake, or lush country regions with its vibes of water and life. The naturally twisted driftwood has been arranged in a sunburst pattern for you visual enjoyment! It's a large piece, so it will definitely e the focal point in the room and will create a nice calm mood.
Item #3 is from CABFinePaperworks
I love this piece of art because I've never seen anything quite like it! The detail is just extraordinary! It's very similar to an elevation map, but in much better detail and it's 3-D. The artist behind this piece hand-cut each level of cardstock for the design and encased it in a shadow box frame with UV glass (to protect the color).
Item #4 is from 234Woodworking
You know I couldn't do a wall art post without something that was upcycled, right? This piece is created from scraps of pallet wood and stained to create the variance between the two mountain ranges--awesome idea! Micro-LEDs are placed ad back lights and are powered by batteries. I feel like this piece would be great for those that love the outdoors or live in mountainous areas as well as those of us who need to add a little classiness to our Netflix binges!
Item #5 is from ArtGlamourSligo
Let me just say, I'm in love with this one! I love the color combination. The color and the use of line are so pleasing to the eye. Very intricately detailed! This piece is made from recycled wood pieces (another plus!) that are sanded and dyed/painted and is sealed with a matte varnish. Oh how I love matte finishes! It would make for a perfect focal piece on a wall in any room of your home. It comes in three sizes, and the colors can be customized to your liking. If I had the cash, I know I would be purchasing this one for my home!
Item #6 is from RusticWarmthDecor
I love the blues in this piece! The wood for this piece is yet again reclaimed--I'm on a roll with this aspect! In all seriousness, though ,I really like reclaimed pieces because it's using something that would otherwise be discarded and lead to further wastefulness--it allows for and strengthens creativity in a designer. I can't tell if the pieces are all level or are different heights, but I really think that adds to the character of the piece. The blue and white portions are fabric collages--how neat?
That's all I have for you this wee, my pretties! I hope you've enjoyed the detour today. I love sharing home stuff in addition to jewelry and fashion. This is somewhat of a lifestyle blog, so why not? It's part of growing and shaping it. I feel like etsy has so many beautiful things that I just can't share from only one area!
Have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend and make sure to head over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
p.s. Feel free to like, pin, tag, or tweet! <3
