Saturday Selections

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

Many thanks to Trina for thinking of a nice alliterative title for my weekly choice of favourite items from Etsy.  It’s much easier to find the time to write this post on a Saturday!

For this week’s theme, I’ve decided to go for the ever-classy black and white.

First up:  This gorgeous pair of handpainted leather heels by Mitsui.jing shoes.  I LOVE this idea of handpainted shoes – they are completely unique, and just beautiful.

Now for something completely different (and really cool).  I love all of Morphologica‘s science inspired jewellery, so it was hard to pick just one thing to feature today.  I’ve decided to go for this Pyramidial Neuron necklace.  I love the idea of wearing a funky, cool piece of jewellery that proudly displays your science nerdiness – although only to those who know enough to work out what it is 😀  This necklace is also available in white.  Why not pair it with some DNA Double-helix inspired earrings?

Inspired by Australian snow gum trees, this Snow Gum series of glass platters by Jens Studio would make a perfect addition to any home – black and white goes with everything!  I think these would look great with little appetisers on (like little sushi rolls!) or just displayed in the home.  I love functional art like this!

Finally, I just love this set of 6 elegant black and white fabric coasters by Odds & Blobs.  I’ve used fabric coasters and love them because you never get that annoying thing where the glass sticks to the coaster and gets picked up with it.  Also, if someone spills a drink on them you can throw them in the wash!  They’re a wonderful idea and this set in black & white is just beautiful.

Thanks for checking out my “Saturday Selections” this week!  Be sure to have a look at all these sellers Etsy stores, as they have lots of other goodies on offer!

I’m hoping to get some painting done this weekend, so will post later on with an update on what I’ve done 🙂
