I Asked for Quirky

And I got quirky! Having a little creative crisis, so I asked Etsy sellers to show me their stuff. Here are just a few of the lovely, quirky, items suggested to me. Don't worry, more to come!

First up....The Bra Bag from MissKnits. Ever have one of those mornings where you wonder where you left your bra? Well, now you know! That is, if you haven't lost your purse. I LOVE IT! You can check out MissKnits shop in the link above or her blog by visiting here http://missknitsetsy.blogspot.com.

Next we have one representative from a myriad of great characters in RoseLullabyDolls shop. New friends with great names like Candice, Colin, Arthur, Persephone, and this wonderful fellow, Clive. I love the description of Clive....

Clive is only a head and a neck, he lost the rest of him a long while ago. He doesn't really like to talk about the circumstances but he's always happy to talk about anyone else's problems.He's happiest hanging around on the edge of a bookshelf, not because he likes to read but because he's very proud of his tie and doesn't like it getting creased.

Doesn't he seem like a great companion for any studio?


And last but not least is a bag I could not resist. One of my all time favorite commercials (as a kid) is the "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?". You know the one, where they ask Mr. Owl and he takes the pop and goes "ah One....ah Two....ah Three (crunch)" and then exclaims "THREE!". I still quote that all the time. That along with the "Thank you Easter Bunny!" from the Cadbury Cream Egg commercial. Glad to know I'm not the only one who remembers this stuff!

Anyway, this lovely little bag of Mr. Owl comes from ArelelDesigns. Click on the link to visit the shop or you can visit her blog at http://areleldesigns.blogspot.com/

What a great blog. Thank you for featuring my "Owl Bag" I love this bag too, and I had one that actually had the "How Many Licks Does it Take" on it. That bag sold a few months ago and this one just sold last week. I will have to start scouring the second hand shops for a few more of the t-shirts I use to make them. I am following now. :o)
