June Treasures

june treasures 4

June’s treasures are almost all 90s inspired which is exactly what I’ve been feeling lately. My favourite has to be the hand painted My Little Pony platforms (she makes Sailor Moon ones as well) and the Tooth and Eye leggings. I just started watching the new Sailor Moon remake a month ago and really want to get more figurines and other goodies so I’ve been looking on Etsy and Storenvy for fan made stuff. I’m also still saving up money for my trip in July so have to resist but can’t wait until I have my disposable income back. Also sorry about the last 2 weeks of no posts, had to spend some time working on the back end of the website as having security issues but should be good to go for the remainder of June.

February Treasures

February Treasures (2)February Treasures (1)

February Treasures start of the year with some of my favourite Valentine’s Day themed Etsy and Storenvy items for yourself or a lucky somebody. I would say roughly themed around Valentine’s Day as I always think of pink and candy this time of year even though it’s still dreadful outside and I’m sure there a blizzard around the corner.  I was thinking about sharing a whole bunch of cute cards I found on my search for Victor’s but I realize not many people do that anymore( if that’s your thing however check out my Etsy for TONs).I’m obsessed with the donut bracelet and the mushroom purse the most this month. Food accessories are always delightful to me for some reason, I wish my life was filled with watermelon dresses, ice cream purses and the like…

Pick of the Week: Mab Graves

Pick of the Week: Mab Graves

This week’s pick is artist Mab Graves’ Etsy store which is filled with all kinds of wonderful and whimsical goodies.  She sells prints, cards,  and more but what I love the most is her paper dolls. Her artwork and paper dolls are heavy influenced by Blythe dolls (which I love) and have this cute vibe with a sinister twist. It’s an amazing combination and I’m so happy to have picked up some of her work. I like collecting interesting paper dolls so I picked up her paper doll book which was so much larger and better quality than I expected. It was published by Dover Books so it’s the quality you’d expect of any commercial paper dolls book. My only compliment which I usually make about paper doll books is that you have to cut them out ourselves (also there is not cutting guide) but the paper is sturdy and the pages are single sided which is great. There is just so much variety with the various dolls, animal companions and outfits – it’s like having paper Blythe dolls with extra whimsy. Love them so much. I also picked up a few of her cards to give to friends and perhaps to use as mini prints and they are great quality as well. Each came with a pink envelope and I also got a free card and bookmark with my purchase which was very nice. I have a few detail photos of the items below and if you want to check out her main website, click here!
