B is for Barnacle

Or…how I may have just overcome my fear of them. I was on another Etsy adventure the other night and stumbled upon a piece of artwork featuring barnacles. I’ve always been pretty frightened of the alien looking forms and I’ve had my share of run-ins with the arthropods. I actually envision them gleefully waiting for some soft fleshy skin. If you don’t keep your ladders or boat scraped, the chances of such an encounter with them rises considerably. Even in a swift tide you can get brushed up on a dock piling and get cut.

These pieces have been designed and crafted in a way that has helped me gain a new appreciation of their beauty and form.

Belt Buckle | Vase | Print | Necklace

Necklace | Hanging | Resin Mold Picture | Ring

Wall Plaque | Brooch | Pinch Pot | Cuff Links

Last, but not least, here are four more pieces that are sure to help the barnacle lovers come out in all of us! Wear this soft Barnacle the Whale felt brooch during the day and come home to a delightful print that proclaims that ‘b’ is indeed for barnacle. Or maybe you like things a little edgier with this wide sterling and copper barnacle ring and mixed media painting that reminds me of a cluster of volcanoes!

Bring on more art therapy!

It’s on Etsy, My Deer!

Happy Monday! I’m a little late posting today as we just got back from another wonderful night at the Inn at Middleton Place. We won the January Photo Contest and the prize was a night for two at the Inn so we took advantage of an early Valentines celebration. I’ve said it before and I’ll echo it today that it’s a really awesome place!

Oh Deer.

This trophy hangs at the Summerton Diner where we had lunch after our demonstation on Friday. I think the entire blogosphere is ahead of me featuring the deer trend in decor and fashion recently, but here’s my take on alternatives to real deer trophies.

1. Brooch | 2. Ring | 3. Trophy Deer | 4. Silhouette | 5. Pillow | 6. Mother Nature Necklace | 7. Decal | 8. Pillow | 9. Felt Soap | 10. Jagermeister Penedant

There are several more treasures that I wanted to add to the collection but it would be a mile long, so I’m adding more as text links. I’ve had my eye on Fable and Fury’s Neo Victorian Woodland Raven Stag necklace since I made one of my treasuries a couple months back. This deer stick pin is so adorable. Or how about a bronze deer mount? I would love to sport this striking bracelet! There’s also the very popular cardboard trophy by Cardboard Safari. Ok, I need to stop now! Maybe I’ll curate another deer inspired post soon.

I am planning to use the photo from the diner as part of my first ever giveaway later this week. Stay tuned!

Etsy coupling in our bedroom.

roddy & ginger pillow

We finally got around to getting a pillow form to go inside the roddy&ginger pomegranate tree pillow cover we won {and which arrived from London} in November! It’s hand screen-printed onto white linen and backed with a beautiful grey linen. It’s soft and beautiful and it is a welcomed addition to our bedroom. Better late than never, right? Thank you roddy&ginger!

The picture above the chair is an 8″ x 10″ print of an original papercut from Etsy seller, Mon Petit Fantome and is titled, ‘I Do Not Know Where We Are Going, But At Least We Are Together’. I featured one of their papercut prints in my Papercuts & Silhouettes Etsy treasury last year. The partial picture does not do it any justice. At all. The black is thick {for lack of a better word} and the white just pops off the page.

Don’t mind the branches…I haven’t decided if they’re staying in that corner.

Etsy Coupon!

I know I can’t possibly be the only person who is excited about Etsy’s new(ish) coupon codes! I have finally gotten around to setting up a code for the H0LIDAY season. I hope to have a few new pieces before Christmas and definitely before mid-January.

I really have a lot to do right now, so instead, I decided to make my first Etsy Treasury.
