Sometimes having beady little eyes helps.17. July 2012
Sometimes having beady little eyes helps. Thought I would show you the 2 items I found at the recent antique fair I went to. They were well hidden but I managed to sniff them out and get them at a nice price too. I really love the silver flower one, I don’t have anything like it in my collection of shiny things – it reminds me of a photo corner that people used in albums back in the day.
Pretty things.13. July 2012
Oh the lovely internet, it’s so full of magical things that you want to spend your paper wealth on. I was thnking back to the days when I didn’t really explore the internet that much, when I used it to Yahoo something here and there ha! Now I can’t live without it, it’s like my best friend who I don’t have to share my chocolates with because it doesn’t have a mouth or feelings. Yes.
Anyway, here are some pretty things that I have bought in my imagination. Enjoy xx

Hidden Memories28. June 2012
Hidden Memories is a collection by Puur Anders, I stumbled across her yesterday and went at had a look at her Etsy shop. These pieces are so delicate in structure and I like the idea of wearing a lost memory on something as pretty as a leaf made of cotton. Very nice Puur.
– In my shop you find necklaces and brooches made of fabric printed with an old photograph. They are all part of the collection Hidden Memories. Everything is handmade by me. I’m always working on new pieces and do not work with seasonal collections. All items are one of a kind or in a limited edition.
Pretty little things.12. March 2012
These pretty little pieces are part of Depeapa’s new collection. I absolutely love her chosen colour pallet and the shapes she has gone with, especially the hexagon. High-5 friend, high-5!
To get your little paws on one of them, all you have to do is click right here. Happy Monday shopping.
The other day I internet met Verónica de Arriba from Granada Spain, she runs a label called Depeapa, which is Spanish for ‘from start to finish’. Verónica started this business in 2007 and when I asked her if she does anything else for a living she answered “I’m illustrator and now Depeapa occupies most of my time. I love my work! I draw, I come up with new products… and I love waking up in the morning and deciding how to plan my day. I would kill for a job like this. Just wake up and make beautiful things till the sun goes down. Yes please.
Verónica sells her stuff in all sorts of countries- Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Hong Kong, you can also purchase her stuff off her Etsy shop or from Envelop
I absolutely love her bearded man that she’s drawn, I asked her who he was, she said she think it’s a Northern fisherman who likes his wife, likes to eat well and likes to read adventure books. Nice! I would hang him around my neck any day of the week.
Verónica has very kindly let me run a giveaway with her, whereby one of you can choose between one of her handmade tote bags, backpacks, brooches or necklaces. All you have to do is visit her Etsy store, pick which awesome piece of Depeapa you would like to swing around town and then leave me a comment letting me know which one you have chosen. Below are only some of her designs, there is lots more to see.
This giveaway is open to everyone, local and international. If you reblog it or tweet about it, let me know and I will enter you again. Competition closes on the 31st of October. Good luck xx
