My November Treasures are a bit all over the place, from a comic to stickers, mermaids to aliens, it’s kind of a cross section of various things I enjoy. My favourite shop for this month is Baku Forest Studios which makes incredible necklaces that are so detailed and interesting, very different from what you typically see on Etsy. I also love the Enid paper doll even though I am not a fan of Ghost World (I feel like I am the only person who just didn’t get into that movie). Not to mention the UFO bookends by KnobCreek Metal arts – a perfect gift for Victor for Christmas but I feel like he wouldn’t be happy if I told him how much they are. Let me know what your favourites are or any recommendations you have.
I’m starting off October properly with my monthly treasures, very much alien and Halloween themed to get into the spooky season mood (although I’ve been in the Halloween mood since the beginning of September). Pretty much all the X-Files related items this month are my favourites, although the homemade embroidered pins of the famous slogans by SterreSlyme are probably the most desired. With one exception, the Mareshop gloves which I’ve featured more than once before because I can’t get over how amazing these dragon scale style gloves look. Might actually buy a pair this year, I always resist because it seems like such a luxury. Excited to start seeing the leaves change colours and get together all the elements of my costume. Hope you are having a great start to fall season and enjoyed that crazy blood moon from last week!
I am back! After a month vacation I am finally blogging again and I wanted to ease back into it with one of my favourite posts to do every month – my list of monthly treasures. This month features two items from the Little Pink Kitten because I just love everything they have to offer and other odds and ends that gave me that summerish vibe (which I am still pretending it is despite Montreal being in a constant state of rain and storms). My favourite item this month is the Eat Your Feelings sticker pack from Lindsay Campbell who just started selling them this week – I can’t wait to pick some up although everything here are all high on my want list!
Also as a side note, I have no internet for the next few weeks so posts might be going up at random times when I can get to library or local café but I am still hoping to post Monday to Thursday. Let me know in the comments any of your treasures from August.
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…
Of course I had to make October Treasures all things Halloween and monster themed! I even made sure to share this with you as early as possible this month just in case you want to pick something up just in time for Halloween. Can you tell I’m in love with dragon scales and octopus right now? I have already bought that amazing octopus necklace directly from Lapoonder’s and the Halloween zine from deadspiderhands. Beside those the two things I want most from my treasures this month by far are the Sailor Moon tights, and the bat purse. They are so awesome and cute so I hope I can pick them up. Let me know in the comments what you favourites are!

August Treasures are still in the summer spirit even though we are getting close to the end. Its fun to have a look on Etsy and Storenvy and find really cool shops that make handmade items. I’ve gotten so excited about creating my little treasures lists I’ve already started Septembers and Octobers. Hope you are enjoying the month and have fun looking at all my picks for this month.
So many amazing things I’ve found online lately. Feel so wonderful that there is artists and trades people out there being able to make a living using Etsy and Storenvy. It’s really a wonderful thing and there is just so many treasures around the corner. Feel like if I was ever able to afford even half of these items on here I’d feel like the luckiest girl on the world. lol. Check out May treasures!

I’m loving doing these mini collections and dream picks for each month. It’s a great way to show you some cool finds from Etsy and elsewhere on the net. It lets me day dream a little! Which is always nice when you don’t have much money to spare on these kind of things. You can follow me on Etsy, here if you want to see more of my random finds!
