friday fuzzies

[fri'dā fuz'ēz] n. handmade finds of pure cuteness to make fridays even better

every friday i will share with you something or things that i found which meet the following criteria:
1. it's cute
2. it's handmade
and most of all,
3. i covet it

this week my theme is tim burton.  his exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City will be closing on monday, and i very sadly was not able to take the trip to see it.  for as much art history as i have studied, i think this man has influenced my creative life more than any other artist.  and if i won the lottery today, every single one of these items would be mine!

this mad hatter organic button waist coat is by alterecoclothing.  i love the purple on the cuffs and waistband, and the multicolored buttons...  oh do i wish this was hanging in my closet!

this orange and turquoise square skull dish by maryjudy reminds me especially of the furniture in "beetlejuice".  and it would look so nice in my house!

i adore everything in camamiel's shop.  she has such cute dark things, and roberta the pirate pixie doll looks like she could be the love child of the red queen and stayne from "alice in wonderland".

MissMillificent's dolls, to me, embody the spirit of tim's artwork.  lucy lou art doll has something black and unctuous broiling under her neat and presentable appearance, and she has a very special apple for her teacher...

last but definitely not least, this nightmare before christmas cigar box purse by SuperVixenBadGirl is worth visiting.  it has several of the characters from this all-time favorites movie of mine on other sides, and even better - some rhinestones in the swirls for some glam.


  1. I too am a fan of cute and dark. You found some great picks here.... I especially love that jacket!

  2. Amazing!
    I just saw Alice in Wonderland yesterday!
    I'm also a huge lover of everything Tim Burton and these are truly great picks!

  3. some great pics here! What fun items!

    Who doesn't love Tim Burton??? haha, that art museum sounds like it would have been amazing to see!

    great post!

    Thanks for including my Mad Hatter jacket! :)


  4. Great finds- thanks for including Lucy Lou! I wish I was also close enough to get to the MOMA exhibit, but I was lucky enough to be gifted "The Art of Tim Burton" book, so that's a little comfort. :)

  5. Hi! Thanks for including my little Roberta pirate doll, she is very happy! I got that book too, ha, ha, ha, this man is freaking great!
