Utterly gorgeous

There so much about this dress by poplovedesigns that is exactly right. Very original and beautiful.


Great colors on this whimsical plastic flower ring by RedAreTheRoses. I want everything in this shop. It would make me feel like the glammest chicky ever - channeling her 5 year old self.

'Cause buttons are wonderful

Moonfaces shop is full of cool buttons made into great little rings. And all so affordable!

It was so hard to pick just one item from the fabulously-named Grandma Was a Floozy shop. This just won out over her delightful little crocheted rings - but just barely.

Elegant in midnight

This scarf by mkcarroll is so ladylike and elegant. What a perfect color!

How much do I love this giraffe wall hanging by PaperStampede? Let me count the ways.
1. Giraffes are cool. So lovely but with those comical nubbins on their heads.
2. I find taxidermy completely fascinating. Not enough to want a dead animal on my wall but enough to love the idea of a fake dead animal on my wall.
3. He looks so freaking bored and urbane.
4. Its paper mache and I love paper mache.
5. They offer to make the spots in an argyle pattern if you like. Argyle!
Love love love it.

All those possibilities

Snegoratchka makes these pretty copper bracelets and lets the buyer pick a word that's meaningful to them. I can picture ones with words like "fearless" or "create" or "wonder" or "illuminate" or "adventuress." The hardest part would be picking a word or phrase for your very own.

Lace rethought

Modesigns makes these oh so unique earrings out of vintage lace. What a great idea!

Sometimes I come across a shop where everything seems to have been conceived from my dreams. It might sound silly, but that's how I feel about



This is so so so so pretty and would look pretty with so many things in my closet. Fofalle is a wizard of sewing and color choice.

Cuteness for my finger

Eek! I love this idea and all the possibilities. Made by ColleenBaran.

Knitters amaze me

DesignbyNihan makes these amazing sweater vest hoodies. And according to her shop, she's fast! Knitters impress me like mad. I generally have to stick to crafts that require way less precision.

Glam clutch

This clutch by DollyBags is so superhero glam. It would look amazing with such a variety of outfits.

So many textures

This beaded and knitted necklace could definitely put one in mind of spring and all its lovely freshness and non bitterly coldness. Made by KnitKnit.

Can you tell it's flippin' cold here?

Else why would I be drawn to all these pretty scarves and hats? I lurve the variety of yarns, threads, and even tshirt fabric (!) used by Nutmegs in her pretty scarves. Here flower adorned hats are equally irresistable.

I like big buttons

And of course I love this 'boggin by Romantic Gems.

Urban nature.

Oh, wow. To me this is a "signature piece" that you could wear with every outfit for the rest of your life. From Honeybee.


So my theory is that just wearing this dragon bracelet by Marcimarie is enough to make me look badass. Maybe not, but its still pretty awesome. (And I'm incapable of explaining my random urges to look badass. Every girl gets those impulses, right)

Birds on flourishes

Pretty mobile by SpinDesigns would look great in my bedroom. Or really any room at all.

Butterfly generator

These notecards are so interesting and pretty! Made by EnfinLaVoila.

Made me gasp

My god I love these earrings! Serious super committed love! The colors, the art deco-ish shape, the sparklyness! Made by Artisan Look.

I'd like to rest my heavy head tonight

Love these! I've seen lots of pretty rooms with lots of framed pictures grouped togetehr with the odd letter or star in with the mix. These would be absolutely perfect for that. Find them at NestaHome.

There is a magic handshake witches often use

MincingMockingbird has the prettiest bird art with the quirkiest titles. I'm in love with everything they have. This is my current favorite.

Lady of mystery

Doesn't she look mysterious and dangerous? This orchid fastener by AnnaBronwyn is stunning. She sells the veil to go with as well. Love it!

Such a wonderfully worn out looking heart in this pendant by 32lives.

Scrumptious colors

This photograph by petritent is so very hard to resist. Just the perfect combination of colors.

Absolutely not knocked up

But I still love this shirt by discobelly. Great print!

Flutter is a pretty verb

This flutter dress by Peel is gorgeous and it looks so easy to wear. Love it!

So this is from Sketchbook, the current featured seller. I was drawn in to her by the lovely plaid bag shown on the front page, but then I fell in love with this. I love all the circles and the daintiness of the lace. Mmmm.

I want to be an adventurine

This jade and adventurine necklace by ERMoriginals is such a pretty color combination. And I'm loving the new pounce feature on etsy. It's addictive.

Urban fairytale

This necklace by Designs by a Hummingbird is so up Kristen's alley. So cool!

Imaginary stories

LilyMoon's work is so incredibly sweet and fascinating. Love this little pin from her Imaginary Stories line.

A watched clock never chimes.

Isn't that the truth? It's also the title of this amazingly fabulous print from Tracy Edwards of traceface. I love the incredible detail in the clock, and the simple elegance of the kitty silhouette. Parfait!

Bronze and champagne

Everything in the BellaRoseByLiz shop is beautiful - but these just might be the beautifull-est. The wonderful color gradiation and the perfect bronzey metal. So pretty!
