Updates Galore

I promise we haven't disappeared from the planet. We're both just busy with new projects lately. In case you need a dose of sweet and coldness, check out the following:

Kristen is playing some mighty fine tunes. Listen to her here. She also may or may not still be learning Russian from cranky instructors.

Claire is posting all anew over at The Perfect Binge and amalgam of everything she finds - oooh sparkley!

Both of them are way overdue for a meet-up over some fancy martinis.

Patches of sweetness

How darling are these pillows by thelittleprints? Her wreaths are equally as cute.

Luzia Pimpinella has some crazy cute items in her shop - like this owl keychain. But you really must take a gander at her blog or flickr account. Her daughter is one of the coolest dressed lil kids I've seen.

If you need a smile, get thee to Marc Johns' flickr stream or his new blog. The man is funny and odd in just the right sort of way.

Rain drops

Oooh! How pretty! Made by pamelasusan. This is going straight into the super-coveted territory.

The pattern on this dish is so fun that I'd love to see it on a dress. A happy happy summer dress. Find the dish at SurrenderDorothy.

Soft spoken

Jeremiah Ketner does some interesting paintings. This one titles "Soft Spoken" caught my eye. See more of his work at Small and Round.

This tin from ModishVintage is so unrepentently girly.

Oooh - how I'd love to have these cups and serve something like cordial in them while I chatter in my garden with friends. Find them at LoucheLab.

No good reason

I have no good reson to covet this cloth. No impending projects that call for it. But still the magpie in me wants.

Spring spring spring

I'm dying for spring and pretty spring dresses. Expect to see loads around these parts. This one would look like ass on my football-ish shoulders, but is insanely cute.

Just what I need

Cause whale vases are the thing. Seriously, this piece by oneblackbird is awesome.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009


I suspect that this isn't the first bag by neikodesigns that I've posted, but I'm too lazy to go back an look. Their bags are amazing.

Tell me your secrets

Ooooh - aren't you intrigued by IvivaEmbroiders? Snippets and curiosities abound.

Monday, February 23, 2009


Go take a peak at RLM Studios. They have a lot of vibrant artwork. This piece in particular caught my eye.

Sunday, February 22, 2009


How awesome is this vintage dress from BetaBoutique's shop? It looks a great deal like Kristen's super cute coat that I covet every time I see.


This belt by desirapesta is so well structured and adorably girly. I think it would be super easy to incorporate this into a wardrobe.

Pink birds

Awww....don't you just love these wood toys by urastarhouse? Super cute!

Melancholy dolls

I love blackeyedsuzies' dolls. They all look so unconsolable and put me in mind of Laura Marling - particularly this song.

Wednesday, February 18, 2009


Vivstrauss's art is sublimely ridiculous. Take this adorable piece entitled "Harriet Had Reached the Point Where One Could No Longer Dispute that She Was in Fact a Cat Lady" Fantastic.

These shoes would solve some skirt-wearing difficulties for me. They would look so cute with tights.

(Found via The Scoop).

Holy wedding bells, batman!

This made me gasp. I did not get married in white. White makes me look awful (even my mum agreed). Instead I got hitched in chocolate brown (a color that looks splendid on me if I do say so myself). However, this dress by joanshum would have definitely given me pause. It is the most stunning gown I have seen in a long long while.

Colors that make my heart do a happy dance

All that pretty bright felt! I adore this cuff by PoorRobin.

Friday, February 6, 2009


This piece by michelemaule is so chock full of adorableness that my lil heart can hardly stand it. Seriously tempting.

Now with more bird love

Now really, you can't expect me to not share a phenominal find like belokrinitski's shop, can you? I wish she had some of her big tailed birds attached to things i could hang on my wall. Love them!

More bird love

I quite like these sweet handpainted magnets by Tamar Hammer.

Love the details on this sweater my Karen Millen.

If only

If only, I had a fairy godmother. Glass slippers can't hold a candle to these cuties.

Monday, February 2, 2009


This is just one of a set of 5 exquisit postcards by kleinfamily. These may definitely need to come live with me. I gasped when I saw them.


This hanging candle holder is so pretty. Couldn't you just picture a whole cluster of them? Made by oneblackbird.

With sugar on top

HandMeDowns shop has so many pretty colors to pick from for her fingerless gloves. I'd like one of each please.


How romantically flamboyantly pretty is this piece by wildspirits? All her items make me oooh and aaah.

Circus chic

That's exactly what these stockings by keeptryin are. And don't we all need more big top in our lives?

Saturday, January 31, 2009


How sweet are these pin cushions by Feltmates? From the lil' birdies to the porcelain dishes, they are so perfect.

Just in case you need some color

Check out Ben the Illustrator's prints and posters.

The tree print just might be my favorite.

The snow is piling up outside, and I'm the fool with abolsutely no sensible winter footwear. In fact my most sensible shoes have cracks in the soles so trudging about in them results in cold damp socks. Not pleasant.

So today, I'm pondering snow boots.

These are probably the most likely candidates. They are cutish and rather sensible.

These ones I rather like but can't determine if those toggles would be annoying after a while. Also they are pricey for shoes for my least favorite season.

These I adore and would consider wearing in all weather cause they are so darn cute. Alas, they have a review that makes me think twice. Plus they are also a bit pricey for this girl at the moment.
Also, I have the feeling that buying boots would be giving in to the season I hate. Or that as soon as I got a pair, it would never snow again and I would not need them - hey that might be worth it!
Anyway, are there any suggestions for boots you all adore? Notice that some sort of heel is rather necessary to my way of thinking but a super cute pair might be forgiven for lacking a heel.


This pring by yoote is so simple and perfect. I adore it.


jdmphotoraphs has such a weridly interesting array of photographs. I'd love to pick three of them and hang them all in a row.

Bird lady

Such a pretty little print! By jessgonacha.

Cause its cold

It is snowing again. And I hate the snow. There's a slight chance that a beautiful coat would make me fond of cold nasty weather (well maybe not that much of a chance really). If it were possible, this coat by DeNovoStyle would be it. Its shape is perfectly lovely and it has a hood! And very few coats pull off glam along with hoods.


But not pants! This, my friends, is a dress made of pants. Everyone knows that all pants really want to be dresses. Anyway, ReetAus made this dress is it is hella darling.

Gloriously grotesque

I've been reading some dark dark books so dresses done in the style of our insides should really be something I avoid. However, Toolgrrl's art dresses are amazing and need to be shared.


I think wearing this ring would instantly convey a mysterious aura around the wearer. It looks like it should be worn by fortune tellers and sorceresses. Made by jorgensenstudio.

Sunday, January 25, 2009


Ooooh - what a perfect vintage ring! Find it at the CapriciousTraveler shop.

Hard to argue with that logic

Love this magnet made by franticmeerkat.

There's something very tarot-like going on in this tile by wendy53.
