Antidote for a Gray, Misty Day
Kind of bleak here today. Gray, misty, a little rain mixed in. Last night we had some wicked thunder and lightning move through. A little odd after having a snow storm on Saturday that dropped about 12 inches on us, to have a Spring thunderstorm 2 days later.
So to combat the ugly weather blues, here's a selection of etsy favorites that are sure to brighten things up.
A fantastically happy pink ponytail holder from my etsy pal and fellow Dublin afficiando Miki Martinez in Madrid. Now, Miki has tons of awesome vintage finds, but she has now added these great scrunchies to her shop.
I will now be embarrased to wear my ugly ponytail holders. I'm not kidding, they're downright ugly compared to Miki's.
I don't know about you, but I spent a lot of time as a kid playing Barrel Full of Monkeys. This necklace from Hearsay Designs is a hoot and half!
How could you not feel bright and cheery wearing a barrelful of yellow monkeys?
I love all of Josh Freidman's photos. It might be because oneo f his favorite subjects is NYC. Then again, it could be that he's just a darn good photographer. The color and the subject in this one get equal billing for brightening my day.
Well, I can't say I'd ever thought of putting the Virgin Mary in a cigar box, but I absolutley love this upcycled box from shrinefairy. I think it's a beautiful shrine.
I'll have to be happy dreaming about being able to pull this number, by Wonderhand, off. The colors, the herringbone-stitch-fish-scale design, the hand knitting- I love it all. Hhhhmmm......I think I could rock this look as a vest.
Oh, this bracelet by ACuteCute would make me happy every time I wore it.
At $4, I might just have seriously consider that one! As my mother Marge would say, "How could I leave it here for that?". Right Mom?
What? The sun shines in your house? It certainly does with this lamp from FiligreeCreations!
Flip the switch and POW, right in the kisser. Sunshine yellow happiness.
More colorful photography from my etsy & facebook friend Leona of LeesWhimsys.
Just loving the texture and the colors Leona explored in this shot of a hydrangea. Stunning.
And one more pop of electric blue from VintageByShevva.
That 80s blazer rocks!
I'm feeling brighter and cheerier already. How about you?
Hope your Wednesday is going well. I can't believe it is the middle of the week already. I've been working on ad design and logo/branding design today....what's on your plate?
Ciao for now,
