I thought of a super-duper person who talks funny (you know who you are!) when I saw this set of 7 note cards with a nude woman riding a hippo. I love these! $6.75 after shipping.
Anybody who knows me, knows I have a thing for gnomes. I also have a thing for rescuing and repurposing children's books. I have a growing collection of much-loved books that I've rescued from the trash and from the local library that will be given a new life in the form of something else. These hair barrettes are definitely in that spirit! $6.50 after shipping
I am a HUGE fan of PaperSparrow on Etsy. (-!HUGE!-) So huge a fan I've been secretly lurking this shop for almost a year. Really, one of the best illustration shops on Etsy, in my opinion. This stationery pack is $10 including shipping!
Here is an awesome journal that caught my eye. At $4.50 AFTER shipping this is a steal!
I fell in love with this wooden chicken puzzle. $9.50 after shipping. Everything in this shop is really affordable. Be sure to check out the amigurumi toys in this shop as well, I fell in love with the little octopus!
I adore everything in this shop, and this wonky diamond pendant/fiber millefiori jewelry is to DIE FOR!
There is just something about concentric circles that draw me in. These awesome lampwork beads are addictive to look at!
The fabrics in this amazing little log cabin lap quilt just sucked me in.
I literally squealed when I saw this patterned stoneware bowl.
I wish I had a little wonky bunny like this when I was a kid.
I have such a soft spot for adorable kids, pointy hats, and hedgehogs. This combines all three!

I adore the flower on this crocheted cloche from Sweetbriars.
The Savvystitcher combined two of my favorite themes together in this cup cozy: owls and flowers.
I am a huge fan of VolcanoBlue's origami hairpieces.
Smackinart's Paintings evoke the same bold love of color that I utilize in my own artwork. There is so much fluid movement in the paint in this floral, seems like it's alive.
I really dig these adorable Polymer Clay Flower Pendants from Gracieluv's Shop.

Something I picked up from a great grandparent when I was a child, but the reason for this post is that I have been working on some of my dumpling softies to put up in my Etsy shop.
They were named for my Brother, whom I gave the superhero moniker "Mr. Dumpling" as a child when he was in his kindergarten karate phase (the phase he never got out of, he had the trophies to prove it). They all share his wonderful spirit, his sense of humor in some, and I like to think that with each one I make, some little part of his memory lives on.
Hopefully I can get a few pics taken and get them up here to show off in the next few days!
