Beauty in Black and White

I love all things BOLD, but who said anything about color? Some my favorite things are portrayed in black & white and are nothing but stunning. Here are my favorite B&W etsy items of the day:

B&W Button Ring

This ring is very simple but very creative. It's perfect scale and color scheme makes for an awesome statement.

Bold Text Tray

This wonderful wooden tray is the perfect accessory to modernize any space!



Mr Darcy Proposal Mug

I CANNOT explain how much I love this mug. Decorated with my favorite Jane Austin quote, this unique mug is sure to capture the hearts of many!

I can't resist the classic combination of black and white. Simple and chic, these items are remarkable. This color medley will never be out of style!

It was a good day today... I found a couple of very wonderful pieces.

My first find is this whimsical vintage fabric pillow. It is crafted from kimono fabric, embellished with strategically placed beads and perfectly pink felt flowers.

Shabby and Chic

Today I wanted to expose some brilliant Etsy items. I saw these items and it was love at first sight. Looking at these makes me want to curl up with a good book in a secluded country cottage. There is beauty in simplicity. Just a few supplies and hours of dedication are all it takes to produce these charming pieces. Enjoy!

Besides the fact that this candle is remarkably cute, it will make for a perfect gift... It makes you feel cozy just looking at it! Although it is not extremely intricate, this teacup has endless appeal.

How about this wearable knockout...

Wired Bird's Nest Ring

Beads simulating bird's eggs are wrapped in metal wire, allowing for a clever one-of-a-kind ring. This cheeky accessory is sure to get a double take.

Antiqued Window Pane

I was completely taken by this piece when I stumbled across it. This is a vintage window backed by beautiful floral fabric and adorned by two silver spoons, which have been transformed into hooks for just about anything you can think of- aprons, keys, etc. This window pane is a classic example of shabby-chic.

I hope that you admire this collection as much as I do!
