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?

Small Stump


Here’s some more Etsy goodness…Small stump, the queen of faux bois. You’ll love their silkscreened prints and the cupcake that lasts forever. Affordable, beautiful art to deck the walls, too!

Oh, Alena!


I love a good mail day. Not email, the mail that comes riding upon an adorable snail (smile). The mailbox kind. Not to show off or anything, okay maybe a little, but look what arrived from Alena Hennessy! Don’t worry, you can get one too. Just look at it… It’s called winter tree and it arrived in the most beautiful muted sky blue ever. It’s ceramic and beautiful, freshly painted (I can smell that new paint smell, try finding something that fresh in a big box store!), and it came with an adorable magnet and some pretty postcards. I’m so happy to have this special item from Alena. It’s meant for the wall (not a trivet), so there’s a hook in the back. I am so in love with this and had to share it with all of you. In 2007, she’ll only be offering these as a commission, so get yours today!

Thank you Alena!

Milly Molly Mandy

I plan to post a whole slew of Etsy finds over the next few days, especially since I shop there so often for gifts and I can’t resist sharing some of my favorite sellers with you. First up, I absolutely adore Milly Molly Mandy of London. I love her illustrative work – the girls are so pretty with their serene faces and caged birds, all in the most serene color combinations. This is a must shop! I ordered several for myself, now it’s your turn.
