Friday Finds

I've been obsessing about the great range of ceramics on Etsy for weeks now, but I'm still waiting patiently for the Australian dollar to be worth something again (ha!) In the meantime though, I thought I'd share around some of my favourite ceramic finds so that I've done my part to send them to good homes.

These gorgeous little guys are by Popkraft, our friends over in Auckland. What I would do to own a set of these all for myself! Come onnnnn Australian dollar!

This adorable vase is from slightly further afield, from Canadian store AmyJaneClayAddict. Perfect for disorganised people like myself who never quite get around to buying fresh flowers, it even comes with a removable hand pinched ceramic flower.

I'm completely infatuated with these ceramic pillows from Brooklyn-based Djena. Sure, it's probably not the most comfortable nights sleep you'll ever have, but definitely...

Bejewelled Bespoke's first post - Colour!

I am totally obsessed with colour.

I think it is cheeky - like my man's dark navy bespoke suit with the bright pink and yellow paisley inside lining which flashes its underside as he walks. It can be daring – like a bright emerald green one-shoulder Grecian dress with white opal and gold chandelier earrings in a room full of little black dresses. It can be uplifting – almost delectable block upon block of fragrant handmade soap in all shapes and sizes.

That said, here's my pick of colour from Etsy:

starletvintage - Vintage 70s Oscar de la Renta dress

haroldandjane - Lost in the Sun necklace

greygardensvintage - 70s grecian goddess dress

santokivintage - Vintage colourful leather bag

pattycakesplunder - Red napier beaded necklace

desertsoapstone - soap sampler
