Seeing the World in Black and White

I am no sports fan (shocker, I know), but my husband and I got invited to see the Brooklyn Nets play at the Barclay Center last night and we were curious (plus it was our friend’s birthday—yay Alex!). The place is amazing and I love how they really Brookl-afied a sports team…everything was very hip from the music to the mascot to the colors—black and white. As we were leaving, I joked that I’d parlay the experience into blog post with a “how to knit a basketball net”, but my brilliant husband suggested that I go with a black and white theme. Brilliant, I tell you.

20_0122I am so in love with these plates by Lisa Grue, I don’t even know what to do with myself. The black ink on white ceramic or porcelain is one thing, and then there’s the addition of the pom pom. Stop it.

Ok, these are not DIY, but I love them so much! I found the bunny on Ebay and the dog on Art Fire. $55 each. Sold.

Give me some flat, black, oval rocks and I’ll make this homemade domino set too. By Repeat Crafter Me (again, another cute name).
