I know there those among us who don't understand the allure of fake food...but seriously: these are gorgeous. And functional too--pin cushions! I think these are about the cutest pin cushions ever made. They even come packaged in a white bakery box with a paper cake doily! By Chet & Dot.

I can count on zero fingers the number of flower pendants I own. And so I am always finding them on Etsy & exclaiming "Oooh!" - probably to the annoyance of my coworkers. Wait, did I say I was on Etsy at work? Not a chance..... Anyway, I love the contrast between the dark red flowes & the bright silver. The blackened chain is a nice touch too. By rubygirl.
This bowl is lovely and oh-so-nicer than anything I've managed to create so far. Find it at Kim Westad Ceramics.

These earrings are clock hands. How clever is that? Made by Evod. So many people get all exasperated by my refusal to wear a watch. Maybe this could placate them just a wee bit. Or at least look pretty on me while I'm being exasperating.
"This is a genuine horologic masterpiece, a completely original design by the builder, 100% handmade from wood and brass right here in the studio! No batteries! No motor! The clock is powered by GRAVITY, imagine that! The time is read-out by noting the position of the solid brass numerals on the time ring as it rotates past the ebony cursor at the top of the clock."
This kind of breathtakingly beautiful braininess is what makes me get up each day. Some day, when I have a fabulous, sun-filled house of my own, this thing is going on the wall. See this & other old-world marvels at Chase Studio.
This fabulous lariat/scarf from Fringe would transform the outfit I am wearing today from dull to inspired. I love the freeform nature of this piece, and I think the bits of fabric give it the perfect touch of shabby-chic-ness. This would be so cute with a little black dress & sandals for next month's Gallery Hop.

This artwork is from is one of my favorite shops on etsy - Stiletto Heights . There's something so ethereal about her work, and the titles are good enough to give you shivers. I've bought one of her works before, and I would not mind at all having whole bunches more of her stuff.
This necklace is unlike anything in my jewelry box, but I find it really intriguing. It would look so pretty with a country girl flowery dress and some beat up boots. And of course I don't own either of those things at the moment either. Maybe I'm just in the mood to play dress up. See this pretty flower necklace at Lustre.
