It is mind boggling how many amazing artists are on Etsy.  If you are interested in having something other than a Starry Night Van Gogh print to hang on the wall, the options are many. Just a few of my current favorites.

This is called Fear’s Uncloaking that was done in pen and ink by studiomme

I am a big fan of watercolor painting, my few attempts to paint with watercolor were pathetic indeed so I have a great respect for anyone who does it well like Paola Zakimi

While this couldn’t hang on your wall, I have always had the big love for fairy type stuff and the fairy houses created by this artist are amazing!!! The detail is incredible.

She received a World of Froud Award for her little houses which is a big deal if you are in the know in the fairy community!

In an attempt to blog with more frequency, I introduce my first weekly blog entry entitled, yep you guess it, I Want That.

If you are unfamiliar with take some time to fall in LURVE with the place as much as I have! Handmade and vintage items from all over the globe. This week’s I Want That theme is, “I may have absolutely no use for it, but…you know.” Unfortunately when you choose to live the “simple life” things like totally adorable knick knacks and action figures can no longer be justified.

That being said I want THIS

or anything else at NerdJerk

In that same vein, I think EVERYONE needs a crocheted Cthulhu baby from UglyGerbil
