Hand-Felted Items from Crafts2Cherish

by Jamie Sanford on June 1, 2011

I mentioned yesterday that I’m working on planning a vow renewal with my husband for our 5-year wedding anniversary. Since we’ve looked at a number of hotels in Las Vegas, including the Paris, I immediately started thinking about a Paris-inspired look.  Felt artisan Crafts2Cherish on Etsy has great items for this purpose.

This is a classic beret with a hand-felted red rose attached. Very perfect for embracing the stereotype. $51 from Etsy seller Crafts2Cherish.

This pink felted ring is such a more fun option than a traditional corsage. Available for $19 from Crafts2Cherish.

This would also work as a great corsage replacement, a beautiful red poppy. This is available for $32.

This item doesn’t fit as well into my Parisian theme, but it’s a beautiful chunky knit, and 50% of the sale will go to ongoing relief efforts in Japan.  This beautiful beret is available for $25 from Etsy seller Crafts2Cherish.

Northern Leather Items

by Jamie Sanford on May 13, 2011

Northern Leather is an Etsy seller based in Ontario.  I’m excited about this find because 1, I really like leather and 2, I like the idea of buying from an individual creating high-quality items.  All of these pieces look expensive, and yet I don’t think any of them are cost-prohibitive.

The Oak Leaf Western Belt from Northern Leather is available for $65 – different sizes can be ordered on an individual basis.

Product description:

Cut and crafted from the finest 9 oz. vegetable tanned leather, chosen for it’s unique grain pattern. Hand dyed an antique black color which highlights the embossing and unique grain pattern of the leather. Polished to a glowing finish with a waxed top coat to protect the leather. Edges are burnished smooth, and borders are all pattern embossed.

This piece is adorned with five bevel conchos along it’s length giving it special detail and adding to it’s western theme.

Measures 1.5 inches wide, and features a heavy antique nickel silver “wave” buckle, with embossed keeper. Removable screw posts are incorporated, so that a different buckle can be used as well, making this belt very versatile.

Leather for the whole family, the Little Stud Collar is available for $25 from Northern Leather.

This black studded leather dog collar is a smaller size. It is finished in a smooth glossy black, and features 3 – .5 inch studs. It is .75 inches wide, and fits a 13-16 inch neck. It has a nickel silver buckle, and a generous sized nickel silver D ring designed to accept tags and leashes.

This is the Ancient Celtic Knotwork cuff, which is available for $48 from Etsy merchant Northern Leather.

This is my personal favorite, I would definitely wear this.

Cut and crafted from the finest heavy 9oz. vegetable tanned leather, chosen for it’s grain pattern which features unique scarring and range marks. Hand dyed a rich antique black color, that gives it a cool vintage look. It was then treated with a wax top coat to enhance and protect the finish.

Hard Drives and Related Items

by Jamie Sanford on March 23, 2011

Thanks for coming by to visit The Daily Wishlist. If you enjoy this post, please connect with The Daily Wishlist on Facebook, follow @dailywishlist on Twitter or subscribe to the feed!

Hard drives are a part of all of our lives now, and I know that many of us have one or more external hard drives in order to easily transport files with us, or to use as a file backup system. I had seen this first hard drive previously and when I revisited it, decided to try and see what else I could find in the realm of hard drives.

Jatoba Wood External 500GB Portable Hard Drive EnclosureThe first item in this set that I found was this sexy hard drive that I found on Etsy.  Here’s the product description:

This enclosure was fabricated from left over slabs of Jatoba from a kitchen remodeling project. The grain is exquisite in this one-of-a-kind piece. Once shaped and wet-sanded to near perfection, the wood was then hand oiled and polished with a protective finishing wax. These products are all Mother Earth friendly and biodegradable.


The internal electronics are provided by Western Digital. This is a 2.5″ 500GB SATA device with a USB 2.0 interface. The unit is completely POWERED VIA THE PROVIDED USB CABLE, and I have preformatted the unit as a single NTFS partition for Windows. Apple users will need to reformat the drive to meet their needs. These drives are extremely “Green” due their low power consumption and near-zero heat dissipation.

This beautiful yet functional hard drive is available from Etsy seller BPCustomWoodworks for $129.

NES Legend of Zelda 500GB External Hard DriveThis hard drive is totally retro.  My brother and I had this game for our Nintendo, and this one has been disassembled to enclose a 500GB hard drive!  This upcycled video game is available from Etsy seller 8BitMemory for $99.99.

Slate Grey Bird on Cherry Blossom CaseFor those of us who already own a portable hard drive, this case is probably a great idea.  My husband often tells me that I need to treat the hard drive I carry around with me with more respect, and having a case would probably be a good step in that direction.  It also has a cute print, so the appeal is even greater.  Etsy seller joom offers this item for $20.

Computer Hard Drive Rings NecklaceHard drives are not just for data storage – apparently their components can be used for making jewelry. These rings act as platter spacers in hard drives, and are actually pretty cute.  Etsy seller zosolicious offers this stealthily nerdy necklace for $37.

The KISS Kasket

by Jamie Sanford on October 22, 2010

Ending celebrity product week with the Kiss Kasket.  Because how much more ridiculous or over the top does it get?

(Also, is it wrong that the only category I found for this was “early bird shopping?”)

For a mere $4500 ($5000 if you want it autographed), you can be buried in a casket that reads “Kiss Forever.”

Seeing as how Kiss fans are no joke, this isn’t that surprising to me, and I’m not sure that this is such a crazy expensive price for a casket, I haven’t had to do that before but I hear they are really expensive.

The Kiss Kasket is available here.
