I first discovered What Party? a few months ago through Lindsay Robertson‘s tumblelog, and what a find it was! Stephanie’s Etsy shop is now one of my favorites, and love seeing the hilarious pieces she comes up with. She recently added the embroidery above to her shop, but it was reserved for a specific buyer. I loved it, though, so I contacted her to see if she could make another one. Not only did she do that, but she made my other favorite for me too:

I just completed my order, and I can’t wait to see them in person! They’ll be a great addition to my burgeoning gallery wall.



Etsy Find: Let the Christmas shopping begin!

When my mom and I were driving around doing errands this weekend, to my surprise, she had a Christmas CD playing in the car. It was because there had been nothing good playing on the radio during her previous drive, but it struck me that Christmas is indeed coming very soon. I generally start shopping in November, buy a couple things, and then finish up in the final days before Christmas Eve. Hopefully this year I won’t cut things quite so close!

Below are a few of the items I’ve noticed on Etsy that I think might make good gifts.

(At least one of these will surely be going to my sister, who is the easiest person to shop for. I always end up buying her present first.)

I kind of love foxes. When I stumbled across Sarah Blank’s blog earlier today, I saw this print and then bought it as soon as I got home from work. It’s beautifully detailed, and I hope to find a nice place for it! (I actually didn’t realize her shop offered both in paper and canvas versions, and wish I’d paid for the latter.)

Another foxy print I once bought, from the extremely talented Black Apple: Neko!
