More Wearable Whimsy

WHIMSY - extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression; an odd or fanciful notion. [Click here for this weeks Bliss Initiatives]

Wearable whimsy could go on for days! Indeed I have found several design blogs (Elaine Perlov's BlogStickers and Donuts, and Ecouterre to name a few) who do this all year! 

These colorful whimsical shoes, by Hetty Rose, are handmade using vintage fabrics! From the website:  The collection is based on a theory of re-using and re-working vintage materials in a creative and sustainable way, hand making gorgeous, feminine shoes to fit. Image found in NinkyBink Blog.

And how about this pair from Drawing Conclusions, very fun! Anyone interested in textiles should take a look at her site and blog. She is doing some very interesting stuff!

And then there is Jewelery. I have not been wearing very much Jewelery lately. I used to be all about the earring. I particularly liked dangly types. Jessie is still pretty rough around earrings so I will not likely be reliving this passion for a few more years... until then I can dream:

I found these Sea Foam Ginko earings over at Style Hive, on the same page was this unique address book necklace!

Here are some really nice one of a kind beauties from Momochas, and artist from Spain who sells her stuff on ETSY.

If you are looking to buy or sell unique and one of a kind handmade gifts, I can't recommend ETSY enough. I've been buying Christmas gifts from there for a couple of years. Something new and interesting is always waiting to be found!

This fun kaleidoscope ring is from Lori Bonn's Chrysalis collection which delightfully incorporates reclaimed metals in the designs. From the website: Chrysalis combines environmentally and socially responsible gemstones with recycled metals and ethical manufacturing practices. It's Clear Conscience (tm) Jewelry, and our effort to tread more lightly on the planet. If you are looking for a classic or fun piece to add to your collection you should definitely take a look at Lori's distinct collection.

And then there are things I hadn't considered. Jennifer over at  J Casa *Handmade says "Why not? regarding these whimsical hand warmers.

Indeed. Why not?!
