Etsy Wish List

One of the problems of living in England is that EVERYTHING I LOVE COMES FROM AMERICA. My life is full of inflated delivery prices, customs charges and loooong waits for anything I buy. These are currently topping the list of my white girl problems, so I shall placate myself by showing you some of my favourite things I've found on Etsy this week! 
Circus Tent Brooch
It's probably pretty obvious that I sort of love circus tents and all that stuff. Red and white is such a fun colour combination and I love this sweet wooden brooch! The black outline and cartoony style is really neat and I just really want to wear this everywhere! I've started a little collection of brooches and badges because I don't understand why were are all into badges when we're little and then we just grow out of them? Badges are awesome! However I am always scared of my favourite pins falling off and getting lost! I don't wear my most favourite ones out of the house! It's pretty neurotic, I know!

Coop and the Llama Print
I can't wait to be able to start buying some cool artwork and filling my house with it! I love Twin Peaks so much and these scene kills me and pretty much sums up the whole show in my opinion! Check out their other artwork, they've got a lovely Audrey Horne painting too!

Vintage Tron VHS Tape
 I also collect VHS tapes, I just really get a kick out of playing VHS, I love rewinding and tracking and the crazy trailers at the start and stuff. The whole process of watching a VHS is very soothing to me! I also really love the artwork on VHS tapes and the Tron artwork is CRAZY GOOD! And it comes with the little Disney card!  I can't even totally deal with this, it's too great!
Chevron Wood and Plastic Brooches
I really like simple, wooden jewellery and I really like the colours on these! They sort of remind me of the patches you got to sew onto your sash at Brownies! (I was totally in Brownies but I hated it. I was ALL ABOUT the uniform though, but I never got any patches or badges because I refused to take part in most stuff.)
Divine as Pink Flamingo
I LOVE THIS ARTIST. She does all my favourite people! I can't wait to get the Jeff Goldblum one and the Prince one, but I love this Divine one since the pink flamingo suits her so well!

I totally love Etsy by the way, because you can type practically anything and then select "vintage" and something cool will come up. I go through the vintage Disney stuff daily, there is so much cool stuff around!

You should def try to find it!! :)

    1. That pin sounds super cute and a lot of fun!!

      WOO! thanks for the tip off! I was nosing around google+ today and what they've done is put Picnik under their "photo editor" but it's hardly the same and you have to upload your pics too g+ before they're edited and everything! It's so complicated! I'm gunna give the one you said a shot though!! xo
