Adoring all things vintage, whimsical and downright quirky

Tag Archives: handmade

If you are ever after something unique to brighten up your work clothes or simply want to add a touch of whimsy to your wardrobe, then do pop over to Etsy to see the handiwork of the very talented Emma Morgenthaler of Fairytale Collars. I just adore her creations. From mermaids, to pizzas, she does quirky perfectly! I’ve picked a couple of her gorge collars and a funky little pin that I really should be sporting as a bonefide red lipstick wearer.

Pompom cherry peter pan collar £13.50
Dragon Fruit peter pan collar, £15
Pastel felt heart collar, £15
Red glitter ‘Red Lipstick Club’ pin, £6
Felt donut peter pan collar, £12

I know we’re not meant to like bugs, and I’ll be the first to swipe at a wasp after my sandwiches at a picnic, but these insect-inspired designs by UK based Warbeck & Cox are the bee’s knees! I stumbled across them while browsing the excellent Poppytalk monthly online street market. The Grasshopper cushion above costs £40.

How about offering your dinner guests these beetle napkins. £20 for a set of four. They don’t just go mad for bugs, either. I rather fancy this Key mug (£10) and the fab irons teatowel (£8.50)!
