You can’t buy those beautiful handmade pieces right now… because the Founder of NoMilk Today, Eva, has closed down her Etsy shop so she can make more of those (or maybe she’s getting a nice tan… or travelling the world).

I need, I want to meet Shannon Gerard. For tonight she’s my new idol, my new goddess. I had such a blast earlier today when I came across her work: The Boobs & Dinks Early Detection Kits. It’s not only cute and funny, it’s also very helpful. These plush crocheted penises have little lumps sewn inside that can be found by following instructions in the accompanying booklets. The booklets also teach you how to perform monthly self-examinations of your own precious privates! Shannon Gerard writes and draws, makes artist’s books about hope, faith and human frailty, she’s creating those hilarious crocheted plush sculptures… and she also teaches courses in print media and nano-publishing at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She just sounds like the type of girl you’d want to be spend time with, who wouldn’t love to get crocheted plush sculpture on his birthday? Have a look around on her website: shannongerard.org

This shark hoodie is so cute I couldn’t resist posting while being at work!! I especially like the little fin on the back. But because I’m a good girl, it’s gonna be a quick post… back to serious stuff now!

Have a look around at Imogene.org. There’s a lot of very intersting creations on their website. I’m feeling like treating myself with a new necklace… again…

sprattersandjayneThese handknitted cowl-necked scarves and neck-warmers by Spratters and Jayne are a good reason to look forward for cold days. I love when cozy is fashionable too!

Few years ago I had a beautiful pair of red shoes that I wore so much that they don’t look like shoes anymore and you’d give me money if you’d see me in them. I’ve been looking around to buy them again or find something nearly as great but it didn’t happen… until  now. I love those ballet flats , they could definitely become my new favorite pair of shoes. But would these handmade beauties survive the weather here? (promise… no more Irish weather complaining after that)

Nice work by Zoe Woods: as she used papers found via, car boot sales, skips, used gift wrap, she only does limited series (or even one of a kind object). Today looks like it’s Autumn in Dublin already, this just suit the mood I’m in.
