lovely little things: tiny paper mache bowls by etco

I love these tiny little bowls (each one varies in size, but they're generally only a couple inches tall + wide). They're perfect for stashing any of the million little baubles I have strewn across my dresser at any given moment, and they'd look equally chic in a trio, left empty to show off the gorgeous metallic inside. Each is made from recycled paper and features a black or white matte outside that perfectly compliments the gold, copper or silver leaf lining. The bowls are hand made to order by Yamarilet Pacheco ("etco" is an adorable shorthand combo of her first + last names), a Venezuelan-born NOLA resident who also crafts jewelry. Here is a sample selection of her work --- although as with any hand crafted item, each is a little different in the end.

What a lovely little way to add some life to a bare bookshelf or drab dresser... enjoy! xo

I adore these bowls! I saw these somewhere else as I was browsing so many different sites over the weekend...but now I can't recall where from! Don't you hate when that happens?
I agree with you though..it would definitely liven up a bookshelf or dresser!
