Etsy Finds – Bonjour ma jolie

Hello Sunshine and welcome back! It’s been a long Winter and nothing makes me smile more than seeing the sun and hearing the birds chirp. Well at least for a little bit because Spring is just around the corner. Can’t you see it waving at you – or taunting. Oh well, let’s move on.

I was browsing through Etsy today and discovered another beautiful artist. The shop that I am featuring today is  Lazydoll. Bo is from Cardiff in the UK. The rest is a little bit of mystery. Is she self taught? Is this what she did in the past? I don’t know, but what I do know is that her clutch, wallet, hand painted purse, ipad cases etc are just spectacular. I’m not sure how to describe her style, but I’m guessing that if you walked into a fairy shop, this is what you would find:

Garden bird Hand painted Vintage Purse or

iPhone Case gadget case and probably this

Hot Air Balloon Clutch Bag.

I want it all! I love the colours, the prints, the way she put things together and her painting is incredibly beautiful. I dare you not to find something that you would like.


Meet Arlene MacAusland, she is from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Yay  a Canadian artisan! Arlene is an Indie Designer, a one woman show and a talented one at that. What first caught my eye were her bunnies. I mean how cute are these? Easter Plaid Bunny. At first I thought she only did security blankets with pockets where the bunnies ‘live’. But there is more to Arlene, aside from the bunny blankets, she sells:  bunnies individually, penny rugs, penny rug kids, tin punch, puppets and what she calls “missing socks” and more!

Lesson of the day, if you do not know what penny rugs are Wikipedia describes Penny rugs “are not actual rugs for the floor, but decorative coverings for beds, tables and dressers and mantles.”

She was generous enough to share her latest project with me

hoot and her baby Meet Hoot and her baby. I have a few friends that just adore owls and I would bet that they would love to add this to their collection. How cute are they?  Arlene does takes requests for orders, just email her and she will get on it.

You can view her items in different via her website Twisted Knickers INC , her Facebook page and in her Etsy shop at TwistedKnickersInc.
