Valentine’s Day is here and I thought I’d share some cool Valentine’s picks I found on Etsy. I love those old-timey Valentine’s cards with the cute woodland creatures and such wishing so and so a Happy Valentine’s Day. Do you think creatures know what Valentine’s is? In my world, they do. The miniature house that looks like a pink unicorn barfed glitter upon it is especially cute. I would get that to house my be@rbricks. You can never do wrong with Marie Antoinette gift tags/cards! The cupcakes are also from Esty- I had no idea you could sell food on Etsy. Maybe I should start selling breastmilk on Etsy. Or cheese made from breastmilk. That’s really artisan and local if you ask me. And lastly, heart-shaped crayons for your little one! (or big one!) They also do other shapes of crayons worth looking into.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with chocolates, flowers, cuddly bears, cats, more chocolates, champagne, sex, chocolate, and a terrible romantic comedy.

First things first- Did John Galliano change is name to Monchichi Galliano because he looks straight up Monchichi. That hair! Kidding, how can I mock the genius known as John Galliano! He’s  done it again! Brilliant designs for Christian Dior’s Spring Couture  line with fabrics dyed to look like watercolors and cuts that are distinctly Dior. You can never fail with the classic 1950’s silhouette in my book. My favorite has to be the lemon-colored gown. Reminds me of that iconic Dior photo. I also love the dress in the 8th photo. So fluffy, so soft, so….  Mr. Marmar! Anywho, I think Dior takes the Haute Couture crown this season.

LunaBlocks has taken a childhood delight and made it into an interior decorator’s nightmare! Seriously, every interior decorator I meet wants to transform every place into a Z Gallerie showroom. Ugh. The best part of these blocks is that you can make your own combinations to make the furniture of your childhood dreams! Each brick is about $20, so it’s not that cheap, but still well worth it if you have a passion for Legos. I like the tables the best and I would make all the bricks pink and black for a Barbie boudoir effect!

Freeland Studios on Etsy make these fabulous old style phones compatible to an iPhone called the iRetrofone. Retailing at about $200, these relics of the past turned modern would make any retro-phile a happy lady or gent. I can imagine Don Draper cursing out people on the line while scrolling for porn on the iPhone simultaneously. Seriously, this is actually a great phone since the whole cancer thing is revisited. Eating popcorn also makes me think of this video. So, as soon as I scrounge up some money, I think I will order a pink iRetrofone just so I can feel like a 1950’s sexatary whilst saving brain cells! Of course, Mr. Marmar would be in my lap as I plan to take over the world! Muahahahahah!

Los Angeles -based Beat Up Creations just knows what the public wants- vintage china plates with Gizmo right in the center! This makes tea time such a treat with a bear-faced Marie Antoinette staring back at you through a scatter of scone crumbs! *Swoon*! My favorite has to be the Elizabethan ET or the cat in uniform. Hell! They’re ALL my favorite. Beat Up Creations also does zombie portraits, so make sure to check out their Etsy store. There were seriously too many to post, but they ALL are just lovely and kitschy! Aaaaaand , they are all upcycled. Brilliant work!

Teacup lamps by Ceramics lighting designer Gregory Bonasera is just my cup tea! I collect tea sets and cups so this gives me a wonderful idea to add more tea sets without really taking up more space in my display cabinet. I’m not really good with electrical stuff, though, so, maybe I should just pass on that.  Anyway, check out Bonasera’s other works , including ceramic bones for your living room or doctor’s office. These teacups are all vintage tea cups, so no two are alike.

Here is an old suit I found at a thrift store years ago. It’s yellow with white teeny tiny polka-dots and it’s a light cotton. Great summer suit. I thought the original buttons were lame, so I glued on candy cabochons to the buttons! They totally livened up the suit! The popsicle pins were originally cupcake toppers ( I ate the cupcakes) that I took and put a pin the back to make a brooch. Since finding shoes to match a yellow suit is a little tough, I took a pair of cheap heels and spray painted them with Simply Spray fabric spray in yellow and then I added ice cream cone cabochons to the bow. Voila! I’m ready for the Willy Wonka tour!

*By the way, sorry for the poor quality photos- I was on the lookout for bedbugs at my hotel in NYC. Seriously!

Above is a vintage Moschino Cheap & Chic dress that is half mannequin and half suit. I wore that for a series of interviews for ‘Machete’. The little mouse pin (moosh!) is actually nibbling on a Chanel symbol. It’s one of my prized possessions.

Below is my outfit for my interviews for Jackass 3D. I decided to take along my Kidrobot buddy, Munny by Tarina Tarantiono. Isn’t he cute!?!  *Excuse my messy messy bed.

Below is an extraordinary bathtub I saw in Soho in NYC. It was in a showroom and is made of little tiny sparkling gold mosaics! The water flows from the top of the heel. That is friggin’ Epic!!! I would not only take a bath in that, but I would move into that tub! I would be the old lady that lived in a shoe and was actually clean!

Anyway, I thought I’d share these random tidbits with you- It’s good to take a break from all the fashion week stuff! Whew!
