fact not fiction

I am OBSESSED with finding strange oddities on etsy. I really don't want to offend anyone by blogging that something is wierd, because I mean it as a huge compliment. I love all this bad taste stuff and hope one day to have a room dedicated to it..."Amy's retired to her study to be surrounded by her stuffed fake-animals with googly eyes, and flourescent doll heads..."

I feel like I should document my finds regularly. Or at least semi regularly.
So today's finds include....

topical russian dolls from

A needlefelted version of your own cat from

...And finally I must metion angelacatirina's shop, which I did mention a few blogs down in my favourite new items but which I must mention again because there are a whole host of AMAZING strange knitted hats.



We stayed up til 4am and went to bed sleepy eyed but merry. It really did feel like living history to an extent that only negative landmark events have in my lifetime (9/11, Diana, protests before Iraq etc. etc.)

It amazing that such an obviously media-led and biased and flawed election campaign has made me SO excited about democracy! I'm just so inspired by all those Americans who voted, and all those Americans who got excited about voting and excited about democracy.

I'm suprised by my own pro-American sentiment this morning. I just wish I was there last night, I bet it was such an amazing p-a-r-t-y

Me and Liam are staying up tonight to watch the American election. We've gone all American and bought dounuts, pretzels, and we're getting some take-away pizza. It's so exciting! So much more exciting than any British politics.

Any way, in the spirit of all the manic madness I've got some new favourite weirdly wonderful items on etsy....

red robin

I've started making lots of robin tree decorations and brooches, they're SO CUUUUTE. I can't wait to sell them in sets at craft-fairs.

I've listed a robin brooch on etsy, but think I'm going to be pretty slack on the etsy-front for a while because I've no internet at home and no money to get it :(

Here he is any way, I used lovely buttons for his eyes the handsome fella....
