Camper planter

Made by SLDT1 and simply adorable.

Big and bad

This little duo by Smeeta makes me smile. There's something very rakish about the wolf's raised eyebrow.

So girl-ified

I could go into spasms about how perfect this hat by moesewco is. I love it!

Gypsy heart

I'm sure if I wore this necklace I would instantly be transformed into a mysterious, dark-eyed gypsy. It would be that easy. Made by DivineRose.

This color makes me so, so happy.

So pretty, and affordable too. From Marie Fly Fly.


Could these colors be any more delicious? This lap quilt is beautiful enough to hang on the wall, but wouldn't it be wonderful to curl up next to the fireplace with this? If I had a fireplace, that is. From sugarcubed.

Friday sparkle.

These gorgeous earrings would definitely add some fun to an otherwise dreary, dull day like today. I love the different shades of red and different sizes. All in all, these look like they would be fun to own and fun to wear. More at Operatic, a truly lovely shop filled with opera-inspired gems.

So what if Christmas is over?

Letterpress printing is about the sexiest thing going, right? Armato Designs is my new very favorite shop for this and other gorgeous letterpress creations.

Could these be any more beautiful? I adore the combination of the bright red with the matte silver, and the whole girly-industrial look of it all. By Clever Girl.

Tea Time

I love everything about these, but especially the doubled chain. Hmm, if only I'd gotten some cash for giftmas! Green Tea earrings by Salt and Paper

Sometimes I find the most stunning, original designs on etsy. This one is awesome. I might need a bublle scarf from bonzie.

Pretty pretty

Isn't this the cutest? Little girl clothes can be so darling. The ruffle at the bottom is priceless. Made by Willarie - who makes so many adorable clothes.

Pretty birdy

Love the deign of this peacock necklace. So pretty and unique! Made by gasupthezamboni.

Cure all

Its grey and blustery out today. Cold and morose as only Ohio can manage. However, this basket is a cure all for the winter blahs. What a perfect carry all to take to the beach or farmers market or any of those summer outings that are only half a year away. Its not too long to wait! Made by happyexpat.

Wood flavored

Fun necklace by PamelaMichelle. I love the retro falvor of the colors and the wood.

Ridiculously pretty

Simply adore this dress by mylittleempire. What a great frock for ringing in a new year!

Excuses, excuses

So the busiest shopping season of the year is almost over and its been three weeks without a single ppost on this blog - essentially a shopping blog. What's our excuse? Well mine includes tonsilitis AND pink eye and a hellacious work schedule. Kristen's has mostly to do with the wild success of her shop. There's also the sad fact that I love looking through etsy for things for ME. And shopping lately has been all about getting stuff for other folks. Which is fun and all, but etsy really is such a selfish indulgance for me.
So here's a real live post. This adorable jacket is made by flutter. Its a size small though which would never fit this girl (Especally with the abundance of cookies that I've been unable to resist. A gym membership is in my immediate future, thank god).

Bunny in a tophat

Bunnies are awesome. Tophats are awesome. Together they are un-stoppabley awesome. Made by Pressure.

Chesire cat smile

Isn't his expression priceless? I've always had a thing for Alice in Wonderland and all its eccentric characters. Made by VioletPi.

These hair pins from OriginalsByLynnette seem to exude an old hollywood glamour. They'd look so pretty in a dramatic updo.

That hair

This doll is so pretty pretty. Her hair is so well done. Fnd her at Elotopia.

Improve a shining hour

I'm sure I've quoted that poem on here before, but its impossible to resist. I know I have a problem. Isn't this broach darling? Made by PinkFlamingo61.
Decembe ris almost here and I have no clue what I'm giving most folks. I think it'll be a mostly etsy, baked goods, and books Xmas for my friends and family (and maybe some handmade items if I get cracking).

Deathly bright

Love the bright colors in this slightly creepy print by Potamus. Reminds me of a children's book illustration.


This circular shawl is so so pretty it may even inspire me to haul out my loom and actually figure the thing out this winter. Made by Kelgwo.

Doily is fun to say

And pretty to look at! These pretties were made by Elfrida.

Specimen 2

I could sqeal in delight over this artwork - really all of WonderCabinet's work. The whimsical creatures, the old dictionary pages - its really really wonderful. I would love an entire library decorated in her work.


Great color and pattern on this lambswool cowl from HandMeDowns. As you can see its stunning against a red coat. It be really pretty against dark blue or brown too.

Great idea!

Miny500 handprints tights and offers them in her shop. As someone who's constantly on the look out for cute tights, I can't believe it never occurred to me to make my own. Her stuff is so very cool.

Pretty pretty! Made by Avalove.

Bird fetish

I appear to have a thing for the birdy stuff lately. This art by OlaDesign is so ornate and pretty.


I could go for a pretty accent wall decorated with a flock of swallows from Subhuti.


Paraphernalia makes these very cool anatomical armbands. Love them!


What a pretty headband! The Candy Thief does such interesting things with felt.

Mystery on eight legs

This exotic dancing octopus is so pretty and whimsical. Don't you love that heavy lidded, come hither eye? Made by ChatNoirStudios.

Pretty awesome

I promise that Kristen is still among the living! She's just over-run with etsy banner orders. In the meantime, readers get to enjoy all my excellent picks!
I believe this piece by StoopidGirl would look so cool in Kristen's adorable little apartment. Sparkley swim caps are pretty awesome.

I really adore the colors of this scarf by BoutiquePinkDesigns. I even love the fringe (and I'm not usually a fringe kind of girl).

Feathery blue

These pretty earrings by MStevensonDesign are so fun. She has so many lovely things in her shop taht it was really hard to choose.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007


I really really love this necklace by DornickDesigns. Every single element is perfect.


I like the drama of these earrings by NinaRossiJewelry. Really eye catching!

Eggs and chickens and cuteness

I don't know any wee babes at the moment, but if I did I'd have a hard time resisting this little tunic by Happyexpat. That fabric is the cutest!

Red sky at night

Love this little piece of art by Cathy Nichols. In fact, I could use a whole wall of her work.

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Oh so pretty!

How could you not feel completely girly and pretty in a scarf like this? Made by harlequinfeltworks.

Bird and home

This little piece of art makes me smile like the paper airplane pictures Kristen posted a while back. I think I need to start replacing all my random posters with bits of etsy artwork (and whatever I can guilt friends into making me). Find this cheery painting at mordentipottery.

Trees full of whimsy

I love the colors and design on these pendants by blockpartypress. Trees are pretty excellent.

Dreamy blue

This was a hard pick cause I'm also in love with WeDreamInColour's Athena earrings. This necklace was just a smidge more irresistable though.


I like the sparkley glamness of this panel. It would lend my digs a Bollywood-ish style - you know except for the dog hair and grimyness. Made by Julih32.


This sweet little ring is made by Exclamation Point. Great photography too!

Caravan exhibition

This print by seasprayblue is so cute. Very very tempting.


Ooooh - you know you want it too. Made by bonspielcreation.


Aren't these adorable? Cause they are. Really really adorable. Made by withatwist.
