Is Your Child Part Of The Cup Cake Mafia?

Via Kitschy Kitschy Coo, where they show you more kitsch-tastic designs, I found these sweet-as-can-be items for baby.




The hand made appliques are done by Bambina Mia -- they are also available at her Etsy shop. And -- get this -- she'll even do custom pieces for adults! I'd love a cup cake mafia jacket!

Retro Big-Eyed Art Doll's In Costume For The Holiday

But since she's in a bunny costume, is she ready for Halloween -- or Easter?

1800's Paisley Paradise

Saying "Antique Womans paisley skirt" just doesn't do this garment from the 1800's justice -- but the seller does add some text that does:
Triple layer skirt with sheer paisley design on the top 2 layers and trimmed off with a gorgeous thick blue velveteen ribbon. This is the softest material to touch. I keep petting it wondering if it's velvet. The longest layer is a cream silk rayon material. The skirt has uneven cut at bottom, not squared off. The ribbon goes all the way to the back to tie a bow. A double layer of eyelet hooks are used to fasten the back. I believe you call the pattern paisley, it is a beautiful mix of rose, creams, blues and black. I can not see any stains. This product is old and beautiful. The hooks appear to be fragile at seams.


Deco Dogs - Wo0f!


The Etsy seller says:
Beautiful large brooch made from vintage 1950s white plastic dog moulding. These are a pair of elegant Salukis (originally called Persian Greyhounds)- very classy looking dogs - very Art Deco in appearance.

2 3/4" x 2 1/4"
What I want to know is, what the heck is "plastic dog moulding" -- and where can I get some?

The seller says this is an original Art Deco sconce from Jean Noverdy, France around 1925. The sconce has a wonderful wrought iron mounting, made in the style of Edgar Brandt. The lampshade is made out of Pâte Verre glass with fused-in powders in Red and Blue. It has the etched signature "Noverdy France". The sconce is in an excellent condition without any damage, no cracks or chips to the glass.

If Knitting Drives You Batty...


Via Lime & Violet, this cute little bat to knit.

This Swimsuit Knows No Season

This stunning vintage black swimsuit of a stretch rayon blend features bullet cups and that dramatic, gorgeous long stem rose which blooms over the right breast. So stunning, you'll wear it lounging inside in February. (And you won't need to turn up the heat to stay warm either -- you'll be so hot that someone will volunteer to play cabana boy & fan you, bring you drinks, whatever your little heart desires, dahlink.)

Made by Catalina, a California Creator, the tag reads, "styled for the stars of Hollywood."


Drinking In The Burgundy This Fall

This vintage full-length velvet jacket in burgundy wine makes me whine as I drink it in -- just look at the A-line skirt, long sleeves, three-button front, and the white satin lining.

Things Aren't Looking So Rosy, But

You can fake it with this 1950's silk rose purse. The vintage handbag has a black satin interior and a light rose colored satin strap, bow and string.
