Art + Design + I Want This + Vanity + Wearables

Pretty things on my Etsy wishlist, plus sign edition.


Medicine Cabinet from Habitables

This sweet medicine cabinet reminds me of the one I painted for my own bathroom years ago—only much nicer. The size is perfect, and I love that the cross is a cutout. Perfect for small bathrooms! (Madrid-based Habitables makes all kinds of other great stuff, too.)


White Plus tea towel from Cotton & Flax

Oh Cotton & Flax, how I love thee. I received this lovely tea towel in gray as part of a limited edition collaboration Erin Dollar did with AHeirloom last fall. Both the tea towel and the cutting board are very gorgeous.


First Aid utility pouch from Apple White

I have a zippered pouch obsession, and this guy is next on my list. How perfect would this be for stashing bandages, hand wipes, and a little sewing kit in your bag? So perfect.


Cement cross ornaments from LaNique Home

I have no idea what I would do with these, but I want them anyway. I keep picturing them turned into some kind of mobile. I really like the soft pink paint, but they’re also available unpainted or dipped in black if that’s more your thing.


Safety First earrings from Melanie Favreau

I couldn’t wear these earrings because my ears are lame and I can only wear gold-filled jewelry these days, but I really wish I could. I have a whole bunch of ear-holes, and I love the idea of a whole line of these in black or brass running up my lobes.


Muslin Swaddle Blanket/Scarf from Modern Burlap

Fritz and Bruno aren’t really into being swaddled, but this sucker is huge (47″ square!), and in my estimation, it would make an awesome scarf. If course, if you have babies or swaddle-loving pets, I’m sure it’s great for that, too…

EDIT: Sometime between last night and now, this item disappeared from Modern Burlap’s Etsy shop. Weird! It’s still available directly from their website, though.


Cross wood bangle from Voz Collective

I’m not a chunky bracelet person. I’ve tried to be, but as much as I love how they look, they get in my way any time I try to use my hands for anything—which, as I’m sure you can imagine, is not an infrequent occurrence. That said, if I were a chunky bracelet person, these would be first on my list!


Swiss Cross quilt from Sazerac Stitches

Ooooooh. I don’t know anything about quilting other than that it looks like a lot of work. This pretty quilt is available in six sizes, from lap all the way up to king. Something for the Chihuahuas, something for the Great Danes.

What’s on your Etsy wishlist right now?

    I’ve been wondering what to do with all the lovely, soft muslins I used to swaddle my babies…and I think you’ve just solved that problem! Using them as a scarf if a great idea – especially if I add some pompom trim or fringe. Thank you Anna!

    That tea towel and those bangles are my favorites, they look so clean and sophisticated. Who knew plus signs could evoke that sort of feel? 🙂

    That first aid utility kit is adorable.

    That medicine cabinet is too cute! Right now my Etsy wishlist is full of fabric and a quilt ladder… and you’re right, quilts are a lot of work but it’s worth it!

    I’ve been obsessed with plus sign prints lately. And weirdly, I literally just saw that quilt last night. It’s hard to find good modern quilts.

    Aww, thanks, Anna! Really appreciate the love 🙂

    Loving the blankets & the wood cut board is wonderful (can’t see it on Etsy, such a shame)

    I seem to have a thing for pretty leather sandals (… and slippers … and booties …) on Etsy :

    .. but it’s a bit scary ordering sandals/ shoes without trying them on, so i just keep eyeing them … and then i”ll probably end up buying some leather goodies that don’t require sizing so much – or a sheepskin against Cold Winter Chairiness …

    Anyway, it’s always a pleasure to discover new favorites, even if it makes the choosing a bit harder …

    Are you safe? Was it your usual commuter train that crashed?

    • Anna @ D16 February 4, 2015 at 8:06 pm

      Thanks so much for checking in, that’s very nice of you! I am fine. It wasn’t my line—I take the Hudson Line, and the crash was on the Harlem Line.

      I know a number of people who do take that train every day, though, and thankfully all of them are safe and well. The crash was absolutely awful, and the loss of life (and injuries) is incredibly sad.

      Thank you again for thinking of me.

    AW! Catching up on your blog and seeing this! Melanie Favreau is a really close friend, actually my daughter’s godmother now! Small world, I adore her work, as well as her company!
