What’s up you lovely people? It’s Wish List Wednesday and we’re back for our third installment of the Etsy color series. Miss the first two colors? See it White & Black and Red. Why Etsy? Well….. I’m looking forward to opening my own Etsy store and can’t think of a better way to promote good karma than to promote some of the amazing shops already on there.

Orange is the color this week and its one of my favorite colors! I love the bold stand out quality and depth of all the shades of orange. Eleven spectacular items to follow so lets get to it…

Wednesday WIshlist ORANGE-01

1// This sweet print from handz is a great play on one of my favorite line from this Gary Allen song. A great reminder to enjoy the art of “getting there” in life. Plus the typography of ride literally has me swooning.

2// Who doesn’t love a great vintage desk? Unfortunately this desk sold last November to some lucky person. who… may or may not want to start keeping a better eye on their piece…

3// Yep, I’m obsessed. I love everything type. Whats better than small type? BIG TYPE. I love this big “h” from Hindsvik. I want to hang it on my “Art Wall”.

4// Every girl has to own some sort of chunky necklace. I have…. several. Wouldn’t this be a sweet addition to my collection? I don’t have an orange one…. yet. Created by stonesartisanjewelry.

5// There seems to be a trend of flour sacks as the perfect cleaning towel right now instead of paper towel, which isn’t very environmentally friendly. So if you’re going to be environmentally friendly, you need to do it in style. Nicely made by SproutedDesigns.

6// This orange clock from uncommon is made to be a focal point on your wall. Add in some great B&W prints surrounding the clock for a bold statement.

7// Honestly, I love Chicago. I’m a Detroit girl born and raised but would pretty much drop everything to live in Chicago for a few years. Lovely skyline print from Benton Park Prints.

UPDATE: This vendor was so excited to be featured that they’ve offered a coupon code for 20% from their shop BENTON PARK PRINTS for Creative Life Antic Readers and Fans until 5/22/13. Coupon code: ANTICS

8// Although not orange in color, orange in scent is just as good. I’m a citrus and fruity scent person at heart and I can only imagine how good my hands will smell after using this! Crafted by Frog Goes to Market.

9// What stands out to me the most about this orange leather cuff bracelet is the braid. It looks so complicated but effortless at the same time. Very boho chic. Great job by JustLena (which I should mention is so super close to my own name… weird!)

10// THIS MUG (from symmetrical pottery). Oh my gosh. Stood out from the page in the most incredible way. Mom if you’re reading… add this to my christmas list. There’s also some really cool dog bowls too!

11// Love this fantastic glass bowl from UneekGlassFusions how cool would this look with some apples and bananas?

Well, that wraps up this week’s wish list. Which item is your favorite?

On a more personal note yesterday marked the first day of my last class in my Graphic Design Degree. Yay. So expect some homework related posts. A lot of painting and color theory. Maybe I’ll post our assignments on here and you guys can try them yourself. What do you think? Hopefully these late nights at school won’t throw off my blogging too much. I’m still planning on participating in my challenges so keep and eye out for those!

Have a great Wednesday!

Wednesday Wish List

April 17, 2013

It’s Wednesday! Which means it’s wish list day. Every Wednesday I take the pins I’ve added to my Wish list Pinterest Board and put them out there for you. Sharing is caring people… (And hey, my Mom always did want me to create a Christmas list.) Hope you like them!

04-17-13 Wednesday Wishlist

Starting it off for us is #1 ) This pillow is pretty much bada$$. The people at Society Social nailed it by combining comfort & quirky. #2 ) Have I mentioned my love for typography yet? No? Well if there was any doubt this book is definitely on my Christmas wishlist. Typography Sketchbooks by Steven Heller &  Lita Talarico. #3 ) These earrings found on Fab (courtesy of Garnett Jewelry) are HOTT!! Yes, two T’s, I rate on the number of extra letters added to stress a point. It’s past the sale time, but hopefully I’ll be able to find them elsewhere. #4 ) These cute dryer balls are not only functional but something I wouldn’t mind laying around while I ignore folding my laundry. Provided by ModCloth created by Kikkerland. #5 ) Last but certainly not least this whimsical candlestick holder provided by Anthropologie reminds me of a octopus sculpture that I almost brought home with me from Home Goods. I still regret that.

Well that’s it for this Wednesday Wish List. What are you wishing for? Let me know!
