Delightfully odd

Horriblesweet is a maker of some of the most wonderfully strange dolls I've ever laid eyes on.


This dress found via Muija's blog was too incredible not to pass along.

Perfect fit

Does this outfit not go perfect with yesterday's room post? Perfect and so very cool. I need me some cowgirl boots and blue tights.

Post - prettification, I aspire to something super colorful, eclectic and fun. Much like this room by lorimarsha. I love the riot of color she has layered into her guest room.

Taking a quick break from my house prettification thoughts to break in with a "Squee!-Isn't-this-lovely?"
Found in TheIntuitiveGarden shop - of which I want every damn thing they offer.


I need a re-do on my wedding gift registry from 3 years ago. Instead of the silverware I received, I would very much like this set from Horne. (Found via lola: bits and pieces).

Time time time

Andfurthermore has some pretty unique clocks. Very cute!

Every time I think of this vintage hippo planter, I get such an awful twinge of wanting-ness. He's so fricking cool (and somewhat Jonathan Adler-ish). Listed by silocurb.

Red and brown

These plates from H is for Home have such a wonderful pattern. I'd be tempted to hang them on my walls.


Far far too much of my shopping is dictated by a very nimble cat. No matter how inaccessibly I place something, I soon find her dangling from that space with the pretty object in pieces on the floor. This handblown bottle by RVAGlass is one of the things I covet, but do not dare to even dream about. (But wouldn't it look lovely clustered with lots of other orange and yellow and one or two turquoise bottles on a mantle?)

I'm going to focus on things that would help my new years resolution - prettifying my house. You've been warned.
This pail from marykaiserstreasures is beautifully worn. It doesn't say what size it is, but wouldn't it be great for keeping umbrellas if its big enough?


This necklace by Augustnine puts me in mind of The Great Gatsby. I could see Daisy wearing it with some marveous gown.

We all know that Ann Wood makes beautiful birds and ships, but would you look at her owl? He's adorable!

2009 shall be the year that we make a cncerted effort to artify our lovley home (and maybe slap some paint on those yawn-inducing taupe walls). This print by andykehoe would make a wonderful start to that resolution. Life is too short to live with bare walls!

How inspiring is this picture by couragemylove? Perfect for an aspiring writer. (And what a great shop name!)

For your own good

You must all go and check out the loveliness that is Fishing for Beautiful. Exactly my favorite sort of blog crush. Posts full or prettiness and variety.

Just a touch

These earrings from sanfranblissco are stunners. Beautiful with a touch of bad ass-ness.

Just a suggestion

What a wonderful reminder from finestra. Love the falling down barn one too!

More arms to hug you with

I think every wee child needs their very own socktopus like those from blackbird fashion. (Some of us big kids too!)

Sugar shock

Yuyuart's dolls are insanely sweet. Such precise work and so full of darlingness. Take a look at this wee lady holding a pig forgodssakes!


Why is it always during this time of year when gift ideas are so much in need, that I start slacking on the posts? Possibly cause I've been spending too much time shopping and getting ready for the holidays. No excuses though!

I shall rectify this by showing you the happiest shop I've ever found on etsy - the very appropriately named byhappynow.

So fun and wonderful!

Party time

I wnat to buy a whole passel of these guys from Happycloud Thunderhead and hold pretend tea parties with them in my bedroom. That would make me such a happy happy girl.

Oh my

I just had to share the gorgeousness that is this wreath. Love it! She has some others for sale over at The Little Prints, but it appears this one may be long gone. Sigh....

Love this headband by Raimbowtree. Its so pretty and bright and unexpected.

It goes without saying

But I'll say it anyway! Why go stand in line at those big box stores buying mass-produced junk for holiday gifts, when you could instead buy handmade lovelies like these super fabulous whale pillows by katedurkin?
I am so hoping for an etsy and art-filled Xmas.

Have you all seen these amazing necklaces by squidlicks? Cause if you haven't, you should go look right now. So pretty and fun!

Sunday, November 16, 2008


I'm absolutely in love with these earrings by asetugrul. Just the right shade, prefect dangleyness, and just the right level of fancyness. They would never leave my ears.

Softish mood

These merino wool bracelets by easternsky are the prettiest things I've seen as of yet today. They also make them in cotton and (even better!) silk.

Happiness feels like felt

This necklace is chock full of happiness and woefully underpriced for the happiness it would add to any outfit. Found over at rosetutu.


I adore this pretty pretty dress by rizsedek. It would be so fun to accessorize with all the different color possibilities. I'd wear it with deep twilight blue tights and arm warmers. Or some candy red earrings and brown scuffed up boots. Or dress it up with turquoise beads and a pretty shawl. This dress is so versatile!

Gentle adornment

This necklace by ovejanegra would have me petting my jewelry all day long.

Flutter some

How sweet and darling is this butterfly wreath by royalbuffet? I'm entirely too covetous of many of their clever paper creations.

This hair clip by preenyourself is amazing! What a show stopper!

Working on it

Not only do I deeply desire this skirt by Cocoricoo, I also desire to be the kinda woman who can pull it off. I'm working on it.


This shawl / quilt / artsy thing by akinamina is amazing! What a beautiful item!

Sail across the water

zhow adorable is this quilted postcard by syko? Makes me happy just to look at it.

That's right

This giant squid monster by AngDavidson is the epitomy of awesomeness.

This necklace looks like it could have been dug out of a dusty trunk in the basement of some ancient estate. I love the complexity and extravagance of it. Find it at t8designs.

World full of flowers

Rachel Stuart-Hass's work blows my mind. I love everything about her pieces. The tub one is likely my most favorite.

Rustles with color

Carambatack does some lovely art. I'm pretty partial to her trees.
