Fab Finds on Aloha Friday - 2.26.2010

Etsy rocks. If you've been on the handcrafted marketplace, you know about their Treasury, an amazing way for members to curate their favorite items and create a list to their heart's desire.  However, one of the gripes I have about the Treasury is I NEVER get a chance to do a list!  It is always full and, for one to actually get one, it is the luck of the draw, or the planets have aligned that day, or a guardian angel isn't on a day off, whatever -- and then the Treasury list is online only for a few days just to be replaced by new lists.  Okay, I guess I can't really say "never"; I managed to curate one a few years ago.  Just ONE.  And, to top it off, it was a beta test.  Oh, I made sure I got a screenshot of that one. 

One of wonderful things I enjoy about doing Fab Finds on Aloha Friday is the fact I can curate my own treasuries and draw your attention to some really rocking creative minds out here in cyberspace.  This week, I am featuring some fabulous finds that made me exclaim out loud, "That's frickin' COOL!"

A little background on this week's list.  I was staring at my crocheted cozy for my FreeAgent Go and I was curious to see if anyone had cozies with pockets.  So, onto Etsy I went and searched for "pockets." I came across #1 on my list, and I said to my computer (as if it would react to me), "That's frickin' COOL!"  The scarf is masculine and I thought it would be fun to discover other handcrafted awesomeness with a similar tone; and so the rest of the list was compiled with the men in my life in mind (my hubby, son, and brothers-in-law, to be exact).  I hope today's Fab Finds make you say, "That's (*expletive*) COOL!"

1 Handgun Pocket Scarf, by WICE
Crochet?  Reminds me of James Bond?  Coolness.

2 8GB USB Memory in a Lego Chrome Darth Vader by 123smile
I'm a geek.  My son turned me on to the minifigures. And, it can hold data too!

3 Mithril and Black Small Chain Mail Dice Bag by Sartorial Steel
For you Gamers out there.  Imagine how rocking you would look pulling your dice out of this bag!

4 Silver Plated Transformer Autobots and Decepticon Cufflinks by finkstudio
More than meets the eye.

5 Variety Set of 4 Recycled Beer Bottle Glasses by YAVAglass
Why throw away those beer bottles you just finished?

6 Great Bowl O Fire Recycled Steel Firepit, 37-Inch Diameter by johntunger
Now, this is craftsmanship!  Awesome! (I also love the fact the photo's got Diamond Head in the background...)

7 Master Key Cuff, Leather with Antique Skeleton Key by urbanheirlooms
I'm thinking Brendan Fraser in The Mummy with this one.  I'm sure the younger set envisions Edward in Twilight.  Am I showing my age?  Oh, be quiet.

IronMan Decal by CraftyGalDecals
I love how she incorporates the Apple logo into the artwork. 

Thanks for spending a little time with me. I hope you had fun looking at my Fab Finds today!  Happy Aloha Friday!
