rikrak - Etsy shop

Well, seeing that this year is our first family Christmas, I decided to splash my cash and get the three of us a Christmas stocking each and rikrak was the lucky Etsy shop to get my cash. And I'm glad they were - how lovely are these...

rikrak: eco felt stockings
The orange one is for ME, the grey one I figured was kinda manly so picked that one for Ben and Oli's favourite colour, so far, appears to be yellow so HELLO BRIGHT YELLOW STOCKING, you'll be Olivers.

Matte Stephens

I love Matte Stephens' work. I've mentioned him a few times before (here and here) and the number of prints of his I'd love to own just keeps getting longer and longer.

I still haven't got the hang of blogging images via Flickr. It never does what I want it to. I can't get the image to centre align and I just spent ages typing out a descrption for this entry and I have no idea what it did with it, so I've just had to manually write it in here only for the image info from flickr to now disappear! ggrrrrr.

Dragon House of Yuen - Etsy shop

I find hares mysterious and haunting and to be honest, they freak me out a little bit. I think it's probably got something to do with Watership Down which I've never been able to watch all way through for the same reasons.

This beautiful 'baby hare' by Dragon House of Yuen possess these same qualities for me. I love it but feel slightly sad and uneasy by it. I think the word is melancholy actually. Bagpus also made me feel this way as a child.

This one on the other hand is just lovely... no strings attached
