Oh, fuck yeah, kitchen housewares, y’all! Hmm, did I give away that I’m a little excited about this edition of Etsy Betsy? Let’s just say that momma could use a new pair of knitted alpaca-fur oven mitts right about now.
Walnut Rustic Serving Board – $51.68 (USD)
It’s walnut. It’s a board. It’s beautiful and rustic. What is NOT to love about this thing? I would love to serve fresh-from-the-oven crust bread on this baby for Thanksgiving! FYI: This shop has tons of incredible handcrafted wood items for the kitchen. I wonder if they have a handcrafted wooden bowl to catch my drool…
London Skyline Jug, 2 Pints – $45.12 (USD)
First of all, London is freaking awesome. It wins all the “coolest cities ever” awards in my book because I’m an English major from the States. We all get turned on by anything London or British. Second of all, the shape of the pitcher itself is a delight to me. Simple, with a wide handle that will fit the whole hand. Yeah, I’ll take this jug!
Baby’s Breath Hand-Painted Glass Tea Set – $250
Oh yes, I’m aware how unaffordable this is for the vast majority of us. But just look at this thing. It’s not made by a starving orphan in a far-off land and the overstall styling on this tea pot is phenomenal; it’s classic without being dated. Makes my tea leaves wiggle just thinking about it.
Pine Tree Tile Kitchen Trivet – $15.50
Okay, after all that fancy, we need something a little more down to earth. A little less luxury and a little more necessary. And that’s what I love about a good tile trivet; it may not be luxe, but it is a nice combination of practical and pretty. And this is one is adorbs, although I may be biased, considering Washington state is composed principally of pine trees.
Old 4-Piece Hull Blue Band Mixing Bowls (E Series) – $35
Okay, okay. So these are not even remotely handmade. But let me tell you something about these bowls: I buy them WHENEVER I see that at rummage sales. Not only are they tough and durable, but they increase the flavor of pancake batter 10 fold by some mystical scientific property I do not fully understand. True story.
Have any great Etsy finds of your own this week?
