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.

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.

Chippy yellow

Cookoorikoo has a plethora of lovely rings. This one is my current favorite, but I would love to have scads. And how clever is their ring of the month club?


These earrings by raquelcastillo are immensely appealing.

Eek! Here's another item that screams spring. Wearing this would beat off the winter blues for everyone around you. Made by SnookyDoodles.

Oh etsy, how I love thee

For where else could one find a squid hat? This one is made by ObeyMyBrain.

Let that be a lesson to you

This piece by hisss is brilliantly titled "You Are What You Eat." I, of course, adore it.

Free shipping!?!

This sofa is a thing of wonder. Find it over at johnnyvintage where they'll cover shipping if you fork out the dough for this lovely. What a stunner!

Whales and birds

My world needs more loveliness like the above artwork by dolangeiman. I would also like on of his bird pieces like this or this.

This dress by econica just screams spring to me. And with the stupid snow that has taken over the outside word, I could use some screaming springtime right about now.

The color and the spark

All the color and sparkle in emilygrayjewels shop brings out my inner magpie. I must confess to a strong urge to fondle all those pretty pieces.

Tweed and satin

This tweed and satin skirt by couvert is fiendishly clever. I adore it and its giant pockets.

I have a weakness for old travel posters. This one has particularly caught my eye. Anyone know where I can buy a copy?

Friday, January 9, 2009


I adore this tshirt (titled "Brave Men Run in My Family"). Find it at CubistLiterature.

The 10 year old in me is acting up again. And she totally wants these towers from Intres. And she's spoiled so she wants ALL of them or she's pitching a fit and holding her breath.

This creation by necklush is so sophisticated and smart. I love how full and versatile it is.

Just saying

When Miss Kristen is wildly rich, she'd best hire me to be her personal shopper. Cause i'd find her the best stuff - like this ring from papermache.

If only

If only I had a pair of these Steve Madden boots, then my feet would not look so sad when out with Kristen and her ever revolving wardrobe of totally awesome footwear.

Suddenly I'm 8 years old again

FantasticToys line of paper houses (and even landscaping options!) takes me back to being a wee little girl again. So fricking cute!


Isabella's Art has so many pieces that make me smile. They'd be perfect for a kid's room or just cheering up any little corner.

Thank me later

But right now someone needs to own and adore this vintage skirt! Available at stephaniebracciano.

Now there's an idea

Undies these cute would tempt me to wear them outside my pants so its probably a good thing I don't possess these ones from ruffeoheartslilsnoty.

On a roll

Ye another adorable bag. This one from charmdesign.

Does one have to have a kid in order to covet this butterfly mobile? Because I have no excuse for mentally picking out where this would look best in my kidless house. (Found via Nested - which I'm browsing only for baby shower ideas).

Oh so sweet

What a darling bag by seabreezestudio!

This would be perfect for your kitchen! Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

More resolutin'

I'm also determined to become a basically competent knitter this year (and bt competent I mean start and complete something I can proud of even if it is just a scarf). This needs by baahurrah would make it even more tempting to get cracking on that resolution.

Under the sea

This broach from The Curiosity Shoppe is such a cool little oddish thing. Of course I adore it.
