Curiosities Abound!

curiositiesplural of cu·ri·os·i·ty (Noun)

  1. A strong desire to know or learn something.
  2. A strange or unusual object or fact.

I am a sucker for really unique or unusual items - also known as curiosities!  Whether I am at one of my favorite local stores in the Heights/Hillcrest area of Little Rock or searching online, I always look for the unusual and love to share these with my friends.  Below are some of my recent finds and their origin (just in case someone is wondering what to get me for my August...or whenever you want to celebrate is fine too!)  

Obviously, as a designer, I was instantly attracted to this rough-hewn wooden floor look by Luxe Plates! These "plates" are actually stainless steel covers that stick onto your device du jour with a special removable adhesive. Designed by 
Jesse Ledoux.  This and many other clever designs can be found here.

While I'm not the biggest fan of displaying your latest kill throughout your home, these delicate and rather eccentric pieces would look amazing adorning any cocktail table. Thankfully, this is a naturally shed white-tailed Deer antler, hand-painted with acrylic paint in beautiful shades of gold, aqua, cream and purple by artist Cassandra Smith. Learn about the artist and her work here.
