All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Ah, liquor...is there anything you can't make better?1. Guardian of the Sherry- lion liquor tag necklace - etcetrix
2. ABSINTHE --- Solid STERLING SILVER Liquor Label Necklace - nouveaumotley
3. Pick your Poison - Reversable Vintage Brandy or Scotch Liquor Label Necklace - BellaLili
4. Laundry and Bourbon - Vintage Whiskey Tag and Chandelier Crystal Necklace - NOOBOO
I'm not a big drinker, in fact I've barely had a few glasses of wine since I stopped nursing my last child. I know, too much information, but I've always loved the art of liquor. The magical Victorian way it can be depicted. I also don't dig on assemblage jewelry because it's generally built on mass produced charms and filigree pieces, but these simple, bold necklaces are amazing. Made with vintage decanter tags, I think they should be the next Neo-Victorian trend.

What wonderful picks! I agree that Vintage Liquor tags can be so enchanting. Very turn of the Century Europe. Even if you do not drink it, you can still admire its beauty.

Thank you for including one of my items. I am very flattered!

Fun picks - keep thinking of Oscar Wilde "I have made an important discovery…that alcohol, taken in sufficient quantities, produces all the effects of intoxication."

I've been eyeing these vintage liquor tag necklaces since I first saw one. Love them! Need a bourbon one - although the "Absinthe" is awfully tempting...
