I simply adore poppies but I never ever plant the suckers on time. This clutch by Moxie & Oliver would be a nice way to have them year round.

Dangling lovelies

Aren't those beads the prettiest. These earrings made by CleverGirl are amazingly pretty.

Buttons make me happy

What a happy bunch of button flowers! I love this idea. Unfortunately, so would my cats. It would not last long in my house. Made by ButterflyMosaics.


I suspect that this would look really striking in someone's hair. I love the organic shape. Made by Quecraft.

For lounging

I kind of love this handpainted shear tunic. It just seems so perfect for my pretend life - worn while lounging next to a bright blue pool in some Middle Eastern country. I seem to have a lot of pretend lives I know. Made by Pour Cherie.


This giganto squid is impossible to resist. He has fangs! And tentacles made of old ties! And he's about six feet in length! Okay I can cut it with the exclamation points. Giant squids are just too exciting for this girl to handle. Find him at ChristinaWard.


I seem to have a fascination with butterfly necklaces for some strange reason. This one is beautiful. Made by Elisabeth Space.

This ring is strikingly pretty. The stone is rainforest jasper - it even sounds pretty! Made by Beadoodles.

Oh my

I am intrigued by these unique earrings by Dream Spiral Art. They call them Midnigh Fire which seems an appropriate description of the colors. They're very urban decay/prettyish.


I highly approve of the fabrics used in this cute dress. (In fact I love the shoes too but I'm doubting they'll be sent along with the dress!) Made by MyLittleEmpire. Pretty freaking cute!

Sweetly perfect

They look like porcelain to me. These sweet enamel earrings are so just right. Find them at Jennifer Rydin Designs.

This is all kinds of fabulousness. Made by PeacockBlue.

Hands off

I'm pretty sure that these are about to be mine, so I'm not entirely sure why I am posting them, other than their absolute fabulousness (of course.) As I'm sure I have said here before, I do love jewelry that is simultaneously girly and industrial. Add to that mix the fact that these are also quite brainy (they feature literature!) and a steal ($8.50), it is a wonder that I was able to type this out before snatching these earrings right up.

Underneath it all

I'm sure I've posted about StilettoHeights work before, but this one was too lovely to pass by. IT looks like something straight out of a fairy tale.

Dream bird

Lampreia uses such interesting processes to transform simple pictures into something more. The colors used on this darling bird picture are so dreamlike.

Eek! These are so lovely and romantic. Find them at gNeebo.

Glorious sadness

This beautiful bookmark by Anne Julie reminds me of a particular tarot card. And I really like the ribbon being at the bottom of the marker instead of the top for some reason.


Who wouldn't be charmed by this grouchy-looking yetti shadow puppet made by Owlyshadowpuppets? Especially since you can by his fellow puppets (a fairy, an owl, and a mermaid) and make up fantastical stories about them. Man do I love etsy!

Orangey goodness

I really like the color of this serving plate. I'd pile it full of pale yellow cookies. Made by MadMadPotter.

Follow Your Heart

Fun retro-ish print by Groove Press. The background makes me think of carnival rides for some reason, and I love anything with a winged heart.

I am absolutely in love with the tree ring paintings by Focus Line Art. Great colors and slightly hypnotic. I could see a grouping of 9 of these above my dining room table. And at that price, it could be a possibility.

For the pup

My pup's leash is crapping out on me. This one by The Modern Pet would be a nice replacement.

I like the cheekiness of this look. Granted, maybe I did kind of snicker at the girl in my college who always wore neck scarfs tied so jauntily. But it was more cause she looked like flight attendant barbie in almost every way possible. I think it was her too-perky-smile that overwhelmed me. This is not barbie-like in any way. At least not in my mind. Find it at GreyGoat.

Green as can be

I regularly fall in love with various colors. And lately I'm as smitten as can be over this shade of green. Sure next week I may be professing my love for flaming orange or deep deep blue, but today, this green has my heart. Made by Gillyflower.

Plaid and handy

This makes me smile too. The fabric is so much fun! Made by Sam Made Hand Bags.

Flowers for your ears

What a sweet lil' bouquet for happy ears! Made by PavoReal.

There are no words

I am in love. Anything with vintage plastic flowers just gets me all excited. I adore the color combination here, and the contrast of the crazy flowers with the simplicity of the kilt pin. By MTuent.

Pussy Willows

After Claire posted that lovely shrug from Year of the Goat, I checked out their shop and just fell in love with these knitted/felted pussy willows--made of cashmere, no less. A whole slew of these would look just amazing on the dining room table of the house I don't have. Just beautiful!
