The Candy Thief


I know this isn’t for the home, but since this is a blog about good design, I couldn’t resist sharing The Candy Thief with you today. She has some of the most gorgeous neckwear and vintage button creations. I haven’t laid eyes on neckwear like this before, I’m absolutely smitten. I’d love to wear this with my winter coat, it’s quite a nice look for staying warm, especially for days when you want a crisp, clean look without the bulk of a scarf. So, so pretty…

Ruby-Crowned Kinglette


Visit Ruby-crowned kinglette of Seattle for sachets, cloth dolls (love these), bags, and more beautiful things for your nest. Etsy rules, doesn’t it? I can’t imagine a world without them now…

Ashley Goldberg of Kitty Genius


Ashley Goldberg of Kitty Genius is a long time fave of mine… Watch this girl. I blogged her over the summer here. Her work can now be found online at Velocity. She’s created free gift tags, available on her blog, for fans of her work. Click here to download them. I like her use of colors, and of course, the sweet forest scenes and little costumes her characters wear. I often look at art and try to imagine what the artist was thinking, why this or that is there, what it means, why they’ve incorporated it. I’m sure you do the same…

Fantastic Toys


I’m having fun with these Etsy posts. I’ve bookmarked so many sellers over the months, it feels great to get them out here on the blog for all to see. I hope you’re enjoying them… Next there’s enchanting fawns, perky puppets, paper goods… What’s not to like at Fantastic Toys? So precious. That fawn is the absolute sweetest thing, don’t you think?
