You Can Find The Coolest Stuff On Etsy...

For about a month now, I've been online looking for an old butcher block. I want to use it as an island in my kitchen. Since I don't have much room, it can't be too big. But just the right size to be in the way and annoy my sweet hubs when he opens the refrigerator. **giggle** Sure the new ones are nice, but I want one that is old(er), has been "loved" with lots of character.

After searching and searching I finally found one on Craigslist. Yippee!! (Have I mentioned how much I love Craigslist?!) Lordy, you can find anything on there. We'll have to travel about 2.5 hours to get it, but (I think) it's worth it. I'll tell you more about it in a later post.

Anyway, as I was hoppin' around on the internet, I came across this awesome artist on Etsy. He takes old, vintage wooden boxes/crates (another one of my passions) and re-purposes them into amazing little tables like this!!

How freakin' awesome is that?! His business name is Modern Arks. Be sure to check 'em out. In the meantime, I'm going to stand in my kitchen and impatiently wait for my butcher block.

That's really cool I like it and I can spend so much time on ETSY. One of my favorite haunts.

I love it when one artist gives another artist some PR. <3
