Friday Favorite

I recently purchased this beautiful print from peachpatrol on etsy.


Located in Australia, there was a bit of a wait for the post to get it together and get this to me.

I was almost breathless with anticipation.  I was so excited for it.

When it arrived last week, it surpassed ALL expectations.

SO SO SO amazingly beautiful in person!  Lovely little extras included in the package.

I cannot wait to get this matted and framed.

Also:  I will definitely be ordering more prints.  I just have to choose.

I’m a bit of an art hoarder.  I’m so grateful for prints–since my budget doesn’t allow for originals (yet).

We’re re-doing our living room, and I plan to pretty much have ALL the walls covered in art.  You better believe this lovely lady will have a place of honor.

Changing it up a bit this Friday and bringing you an awesome band instead of a physical item that is a favorite.

It’s almost the weekend, so I’m bringing you a booty shaker in celebration!


So, I give you Magnolia Sons’ “Baby That’s You”:

I came across this band on another blog–and, wow, I really wish I remember which one, because I’d love to say “thanks”.  I am absolutely in love with this song, and this band, really.


Seems they’re still on the small side, and are in the Nashville area primarily.  I’m really hoping they have plans to tour a little more to the south…..ideally my neck of the woods.


Another great one:

Today I’m sharing something that you’ll either love or hate.


I hope this doesn’t ruin our friendship.


See, I have a small collection of Bradley poseable dolls from the 60s and 70s.  You know the ones–cloth, poseable arms, big eyes, flourescent make up, crazily coiffed hair.


I do regular searches on etsy for them.  Sometimes nabbing a really great deal, sometimes crying a little inside because the doll I want is beyond my price range.


One day, I ran across DolliPop Vintage’s shop and I was hooked.

DolliPop Vintage isn’t just selling your grandma’s Bradley doll.  Nosirree.  DolliPop Vintage is selling unique, one of a kind creations MADE FROM Bradley dolls.

I have a love of all things circus, and slightly creepy….yet lovely.  And, when I saw these beauties?


I had to have them immediately.

I ordered them that day, and anxiously awaited their arrival.


Meanwhile, I told everyone I could think of about them.  That was when I realized not everyone shared my love of these two little girls.  Not everyone wanted them in their own home, above their computer screen day in and day out.  Not everyone would stare lovingly at them, speak sweet nothings to them, create stories and outings for them.

To each his own, as they say.


I just cannot imagine a world without these babies of mine.  They’re simply exquisite in person–beautifully painted and seamlessly merged.

DolliPop Vintage has a a number of other beauties in the shop right now–I’m just trying to decide which one will be my next sweetheart to join the gang…..  Daisy, here, is calling my name:

But maybe I should go with Flora and Fauna…they could be the older sisters of my little sailor girls:

Check out the shop–I mean, if you’re not hiding under a table already.

Amazing “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” print from Castlepop (ordered online).  Find it here:×10?ref=shop_home_active

I love the movie.  LOVE.  Kate Winslet is always a win in my book, but I actually think the movie features Jim Carey’s best performance to date.  I really prefer him when he’s tapping into that darker side of his persona.

I actually bought this originally for my sister, then turned around and ordered one for myself, too.  Like less than 10 minutes later I think.

I just had to have it.

Castlepop’s shop on etsy has a couple other pretty amazing finds–that Gob print from “Arrested Development” is calling my name….  Check the shop out here:

I thought I’d share a favorite find of mine on Friday’s.  A mini celebration in honor of the weekend.

My first favorite find is a pair of earrings that I ordered on etsy almost FIVE (!!!) years ago.  Oh my gosh, has it really been that long?  Wow.  Time flies.

Anyway, I give you the sea anemone earrings:


I wear these earrings almost every day–they are totally my go-to pair for my first holes (I have multiple ear piercings) and I just love them so much!  I am constantly getting compliments on them, and have sent many a person to the etsy shop I purchased them from.  I hope that translated into some sales for her, because her shop is so, so, so wonderful!

It looks like she still makes a sea anemone earring, though has changed the look a bit.  Still wonderful, though!  You can find them here:

Heck, just go check out her shop, Kira Ferrer Jewelry Design here:

Those stackable rings are calling my name…..and the turquoise statement ring?  YES PLEASE.
