A Vintage Match Made in Heaven: Mod Burgundy Leather

I stumbled across these two great vintage items which would be wonderful for a mod sort of look. The jacket is a classic, and the boots are convertible, for two looks in one!

Featured Friday: Derby Girl Designs

I got involved with one roller derby league as a ref about a year and a half ago, and my second league (helping out a junior league) a year ago. Though I've stopped skating, I'm still involved with both leagues, and I often look on Etsy to see what derby girls are making. That's how I stumbled across Derby Girl Designs. A player on the Chattanooga Roller Girls, she makes super cute vintage skate pendants and these great bearing pendants with a variety of colors available!

Knowing how quickly some derby girls go through bearings, it's great to see them getting a second life as pendants! Plus, what better way to show your love for the sport than to wear a part of a skate! I also really love the vintage skate pendants!

I've been writing a story that involves airships, and while I know in my mind what the airship in my story looks like, I thought I'd take a look through Etsy to see what other folks have come up with. Here's a couple of fun pieces of airship artwork!

Featured Friday: Nerd Adjacent Productions

If you know me at all, or if you've followed this blog for any length of time, you will know that I'm a huge, unashamed, nerd girl. So when I saw some of Nerd Adjacent Productions' art hanging in the Wayward, I instantly fell in love. This Seattle artist creates etched metal wall hangings that cover a variety of fandoms, including Star Wars and absolutely anything and everything in the Whedon-verse.

These metal works of art come in a variety of sizes and prices, which means there's sure to be one (or more) that fit your fandom, wall space, and budget. If you're local to the Seattle area, you can see a selection of these items (and purchase them) at the relocated Wayward Coffeehouse in Roosevelt (6417 Roosevelt Way NE #104)!
