Here come the Russians!!

Okay, well sort of...Matryoshka's AKA Russian nesting dolls seem to be all the rage right now and I have to say that even I have been taken by their eclectic charm and design appeal. These dolls sure aren't just for kids anymore, they're turning up just about everywhere and on everything! So as promised here's a roundup of my favorite etsy finds for the category:

These are Ravenhill's "Scandinavian Matryoshka's". I love the whimsical fabrics and their unique look, they can be found at her Etsy shop, here.

I'm totally loving Fambee's Matryoshka cellphone/mp3 "poppets" great for making a statement on the go. With a handy clip handle these can be strapped onto a diaper bag or stroller. They can be found at her Etsy shop.

All the way from Canada! This is just one of Modisteme's plush Matryoshka dolls in a great hugable size. Buy one at her etsy shop.

This adorable fabric from starlitnest's shop could be great framed or stretched over canvas, cut some out for a one of a kind embellished onesie! available in several cuts, buy some here.

These doll's are even showing up as ever popular wall decal's. Available in a wide range of colours, check out Holly's version here.

Sewsewsuckurtoe's offering Mommy and Baby Matryoshka set's. The "baby" fits in the mommy's pouch! Available at her etsy shop.

Enna's matryoshka dolls wrapping paper is almost too pretty to use. Wrap your matryoshka gift's in it, frame it for insta-art, cover a book, the options are endless! get some here.

I'm anxiously waiting for the arrival of these Babushka's at Rosehip's new Etsy shop! sign up for the early bird notification on her blog.

Etsy an intro

I'm totally gaga for etsy, but for those of you that aren't familiar with it, I think it's only fair that I share. Etsy is what I have dubbed the ebay of homemade. This website is home to thousands of crafters, artists, etc. from all over the world! selling the most unique, trendy, one of a kind, made with love handmade wares you'll ever find! and most interestinglly (at least to moi...) is they ship to Israel! each user receives a yourname/ address and the fun begins!! I'm so convinced that I've decided to start my own shop!! but more on that to follow... I have a favorite list that could fill a novel but I will showcase a select few of my favorite finds in a weekly segment, stay tuned. I must warn you that etsy-mania is highly infectious so be warned... I've got it bad...

I have taken it upon myself to share these important finds with you! and will be showcasing some of my favorite buys and things I still covet. You're invited to leave comments and share any tips, links, articles, etc. that might be relevant! TTFN!

In the beginning...

My aim in starting this blog is to bring insight into the world I now call my own. This world merges my love for great design and my new found status as yup, a Momma! Becoming a mom has given me a redefined sense of self and has empowered me to seek my goals in this world more confidently. I believe that people flourish when they are surrounded by beauty and so I strive to do just that. I invite you to join me on this journey of self and motherhood, I promise to share what I know, feel and find to be both useful and aesthetically appealing!
