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....
