What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 140: Playing With Fire


Really beautiful work, but all I can see is this. By TheFirePitGallery

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Summer is coming, though it doesn’t exactly feel like it yet. This weekend, we head to Fire Island for the first trip of the season! And though there’s still a chill, I for one am really ready for some solid outside time. So in honor of our upcoming cool nights on the Isle of Fire, I thought it might be fun to check out some of Etsy’s more creative fire pits, grills, tabletop fireplaces, garden torches, and the like. I would normally be bummed that I couldn’t find more losers in this category, but I’m in too good a mood to care!

Quite possibly the most appealing Tiki torch ever created! By DesertSteelCo

Wine bottle tiki torch wrapped with twine, because that’s definitely not flammable.

While not technically a fire pit, this flameless LED version is nonetheless interesting! By BadIdeaSupply

No, thanks. I’m on a wiener-free diet.

Clever, but now THAT song is stuck in my head. By PotluckPressShop

Fantastic dragon fire pit by NunnikhovenArtStone

Deck fire in 3… 2…

This makes me a little uncomfortable. Are you allowed to use the term redneck if you’re not a redneck? By JustJessiDeSignage

What an absolutely genius idea! No more wet wicks! Tiki torch covers by LJKovers

I’m completely enamored of this emerald glass fire pit by BuffaloGlass

This ought to keep the kids off your lawn!

This is a chambered tabletop tiki torch. If it wouldn’t rust immediately on our saltwater-sprayed deck, I’d order it right this minute! By charliesUS

  1. I just looked up that glass firepit. Wish I had a couple extra thousand bucks, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Great stuff. N.

  4. I agree with you that the yucca plant torches are pretty cool. I noticed that they go well with the man-made palm tree seen in the background. The fire-pit frame with the deer and forest scenery caught my eye as well. The detailing there is so beautiful that it took me a minute or two to see the downside to the picture it creates. Either that creator didn’t think this through or they’re just a bit twisted! O_o

  5. We’ve been in the market for a fire pit for over a year now but have not found one that is “us” and is also within budget – largely because our budget keeps getting swallowed up or undermined by more pressing things that need to be paid for. Super annoying. I am afraid I have to fault your police work on that rusty little raging sculpture at the end as my kids would love it. I must make sure they never see it.
