Wooden pirates float

I like all of Sosuzi's quirky wall hangings made of scrap wood. This one's my favorite though - I think it might be the look of surprise in his one good eye.

Stripey shrug

Year of the Goat knits such interesting pretty things - some with feathers! This shrug is perfect and has the cutest vintage button accents.

Spaceman dreams

How adorable is the rocket ship wall hanging? Made by Willow Pond.

Swell apron

Too cool! Made by Oh Honey.


This doesn't have the lovely antique doily-ness of the necklace Kristen posted, but it is so striking. And her other colorful necklaces are super pretty too. Made by Melissahappystuff.

For all your adorable stashing stuff needs

Great fabrics and details on this purse by Candy Thief. And the rick rack trim adds that extra touch of sweetness.

Crochet Lust

I am jumping up and down right now. This is just so beautiful. I don't know if I could pull it off, but I'd sure like to try! By Unico.

Tree House

I love this whimsical "tree house" print by a.t. whim. Especially the patio set & lights! Her shop has so many gorgeous creations like this that it was hard for me to pick just one.

Spanish mackerel

I adore the lively colors in this print. I can think of lots of place in my apartment that could use some brightening fishy-ness. Made by John W. Golden.

Anything but boring

Boring Sydney's shop is filled with wonderful quirky hats. This one being my favorite even though its quite understated compared to its flamboyant brothers and sisters.


I just love the thought of throwing this on over a turtleneck for a chill autumn evening. Made by Fringe.

This gorgeous top can be worn multiple ways, making the $55 investment seem very reasonable since it amounts to several different shirts! This is my favorite of the styles pictured, although I imagine you could use your imagination to achieve even more. And this color. Mmmmm. From Lady Peacock.

Do over

These swell envelopes are all made from OTHER envelopes--recognize the pattern from the inside of boring "security" envelopes? I just love the idea of taking something functional and transforming it into something functional AND beautiful. From Remake.

Dainty colors

These earrings are lovely and fresh looking. Made by Tumbleweed.

You might even learn something

Adorable sign language alphabet ring by Tartx. I think from far away, this would just look like a cool, retro ring. And then up close, so much more. Alas, my ring size is not 7. But I love it anyway.

Pretty tops that never come in my size

Pale blue and blood red

I really like these colors together. Made by Wingo Designs.

Blue flower of happiness

I think this brightly colored linocut would look so cheerful in someone's kitchen. Made by Fiddlebones.

This little needle-felted guy just made my day. So cute! And his slightly bewildered expression just makes him even more endearing. By Squidge.


This eye-popping pendant reminds me of a Starlight mint. Except much, much cooler, because it is black & white and also it isn't candy. I would choose jewelry over candy ANY day. Find this and more at Clever Girl.

I really like how intense the red beads are. These very tropical looking earrings made by Brazil Native.


This handsome bee plate can be found at Striking Glass.


I know some folks who tend to spazz now and then. It's part of their charm really, but this might be a good reminder for those folks. Even the colors are soothing. Find it at Home Shanti.


Love the look of these fan-shaped earrings by Kriya Davis. They look like something a flamenco dancer would wear.

Ribbons and chains

I quite adore this bracelet made of prettily-dyed silk and chain intertwined. Such a simple idea and so pretty and unique. I may need this one. Available at Tahirih.

Bright and tiny

This necklace even comes with a sweet little box. And the ribbon is a nice touch. Find it at Littleput Books.

Dock town

This print is wonderful. It looks straight out of a children's book and is so full of quirky little details. The people are all wearing animal suits! Find it at Daedalsmith.

Kristen might need this

This porcelain ring is the sweetest thing. I love everything about it. Find it at Round Rabbit.

Tropical sorrow

I really adore this painting with its folk art feel and tropical colors. Get it at Greenwing.


I like pottery vases the best I think. And this one is so cheerful! Can't you just see it with a bundle of ranunculus popping out of it? Made by Marymee Studio.

Pretty simplicity

I'm really taken by this pretty necklace. Its so simple and modern and striking. Made by MBJewelry.

Strange and beautiful

I like this interesting art collage block. Its a short poem about a snail. I'm intrigued by art blocks and they'd look pretty cool and interesting stacked in the corner of a living room. Find it at Silverymoonart.

The berries

I love the hand-wrapped metal in this pretty little ring by My Little Store.
And the berry-colored beads are divine.

Birdy love

The Bird Nerd's shop is full of amazing bird collages. It was so hard to choose a favorite! This lark stole my heart with his Klimt-like background.


Orange is one of my favorite colors so this brass ring really caught my eye. Made by The Angry Artisan.

Luna moth scarf

I really love the colors and the pattern on this scarf. Very striking! Find it at Mix&Mingle.


This print is so happy and interesting. Almost Seuss-like. Find it at Apak Shop.

Tuesday Loveliness

Another beauty from one of my favorite Etsy sellers: Birka Scandinavian
I am wearing one of her rings as I type this, so I can personally vouch for the fabulousness of her work.

It's gonna be a bright bright bright sunshine-y day

Corntastic title I know. Couldn't resist! Aren't these earrings sweet? Made by Jennifer Rydin Designs.

Monstrous love

I love this photo by Bigpinkcurlers. Especially the red monster cause he looks a bit unhinged. This would be such a good gift for my favorite monster children.


'Nuff said. Find these at Kate Black's shop.

So bright it almost hurts to look at

This is pretty and eye-catching. There's something really intriguing about colors that are so intense they almost hurt your eyes. Made by Divine Rose.

Felt = adorable

This mobile has it all - bright colors, quirky shapes, and the lovely to touch felt. Find it at Lupin.

Even though it was 90-plus degrees today...

It's never really too early to start thinking about yummy knits, is it? I adore this dainty-and-functional scarflette from Cosy Knits (Literally). It would look great with your winter coat, but also pretty cute with non-winter wear.

In the Coatroom

Another gorgeous find from Stiletto Heights. This belongs in my apartment. I love the bold red line and the contrast between the dark, warm colors & the light, cool colors.

Lately I've been loving the idea of outrageous rings, and I think this definitely qualifies! I love the contrasting flower shapes in this ring. This would be just perfect with a white sundress and red sandals. How interesting--I happen to own both of those..... From Gee Lizzie.
