fridayfaves-mar13Yay, it’s Friday!  Time to celebrate with some awesome Etsy sellers.

So I love fabulous headwear but I’ve found that I never have the courage to really go above and beyond.  I’m a big hat person, and some people even find that a bit questionable.  However, if I had the occasion and the guts, I would wear something from Emilliner. This particular piece is supposed to be for a bridal ensemble, but I think it could be worn in a number of circumstances.  She has some wonderful, whimsical and sometimes more subtle creations in her shop – I urge you to check it out, for artistic value alone!

I know that everyone’s not a knitter, but I can’t help but share some of my favorite spun creations.  I love Moonrover‘s colors – they remind me of old German fairy tales.  They have wonderful, deep bold colors, and the price is super-reasonable.  One of my favorite things are the cute little hand drawn cards that identify each of the yarns.

OK.  I am trying not to get too excited about this, but I really have a hard time finding sweets that I like and for the most point, I usually avoid them because I’m sure I’ll end up disappointed.  However, Whimsy and Spice seems to be the place to go for interesting and delicious confections.  Who would have thought they could have ever lived without caramel-infused marshmallows?  Or rose and black pepper thumbprints?  Plus, as an extra bonus, they’re all hand made, preservative free and I’m sure, delicious.

I’ve just discovered Coco’s Greenhouse and I really love her stuff!  Whimsical, dainty and feminine, with some awesome color choices and really reasonable prices. I think that her stuff is part Victorian, part cabinet of curiosities.  There’s definitely a nice balance between nature-inspired pieces and luxe materials.

Thanks to this week’s awesome artists!

I’ve been really enjoying my new project.  I have tons of vintage trim that I keep collecting and that I can’t find a use for.  Same goes for vintage scarves.  And I really love these vintage slips that I was dyeing – they are great for lightweight wear in the spring and summer.  Plus, I figure, it’s spring!  And what a better way to beat the winter doldrums than to show a little leg and get happy with some color!

So I bring you….the flea market skirt!  Lots of fun layers, vintage lace and old hankies as pockets.  A little bit of flair here and there, and you’re the life of the party!  They’re all one of a kind, (though I love custom orders) and they will be available in my etsy shop here in the coming weeks!

Today I have discovered the holy grail of Paper Crafters: Paper Source. It may be old news to some, but not to me! I find their collections of handmade papers simply inspiring, and their craft kits and other assorted items (envelopes, colored labels, etc.) simply useful! They have amazing letterpress stationary, paper in a wide range of prints, sizes and colors, and some other amazing things. One of my favorites is the envelope templates – so that you can make or line your own! Seeing this many amazing products makes me wish that I could open up a store like this of my own! Since I can’t, I’ll have to content myself with the website that you can find here. They are worth checking out, because you can get good prices on buying things in small amounts. And sometimes that’s all you need! I know that I don’t have too many good paper shops nearby, and sometimes it’s just nice to have something shipped straight to your door.
