Whimsy. It’s what I love.
Many times I’ll buy fabric simply because I:
a.) Can’t believe somebody drew that goofy, goofy thing.
b.) Can’t believe that they committed that goofy thing to quilt-weight cotton posterity.
What I superlove is the knitting cat. Because a movie audience isn’t complete without a random knitter. (An aside: A few weeks ago I saw a lady knitting while powerwalking past the Haverford Township Free Library. Is knittercise a thing now?)
Anyway. Let me present a little roundup of the fantastic, clever and delightfully silly things I’ve found on Etsy recently. In no particular order.
1. A knitted snuggly representation of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.
2. A waffly fitted sheet and syrupy topsheet.
3. This bunny.
When I saw this print of a watercolor bunny, I bought it immediately. He’s a cute little fellow, but he also appears to be a very tough cookie. Don’t cross him. You don’t want to see him angry. But do check out AmberAlexander‘s other prints.
4. This clutch wallet.
This Sugarshoxcrafts creation has pockets, a zipper and the cassette-only bonus track “Murder by Numbers.” Get one yourself here. If The Police aren’t your thing, there are lots of other tapes to choose from.
5. This card.
6. This hopeful dalek under the mistletoe.
This was my Christmas card for my husband, but I loved it so much, I gave it to him in the middle of November. I have no stamina when it comes to delaying the cute. Must give cute thing to giftee now! Buy you own romantic dalek card from Amy’s Not Dead Yet and see how long you hold out.
7. Cuddly Lando Calrissian
8. The Little Doctor print
9. Pumpkin pie earrings.
Pumpkinspicember, my favorite made-up month, lasts between the Halloween and Christmas. I am the lady who stocks up on limited edited pumpkin spice k cups and pumpkin pie pop tarts. I’ve recently gotten into pumpkin pie oatmeal. Pumpkin for president 2016!
10. And last, this wistful padfolio.
The leather artist behind Etsy shop Grichels offers hundreds of thoughtful faces on bags, books, vases, etc. Each has its own personality. It was hard to pick just one to show you.
