Welcome

All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

A Call To Arms

Attention all Wunderkammer friends. The time has come to give back. You all possess the necessary skills, the impeccable taste, the unquantifiable understanding to find treasures worthy of the Wunderkammer.

So, my friends begin your hunt, find what can be found and leave your links here by Sunday to be featured on Monday. The theme for the day is "Recovered". Any piece found on etsy, or other handmade marketplace that fits this theme may be submitted. Please, my gentle readers, do not submit your own work, though it may be perfect. I want the things you covet.

Should this grand experiment succeed there shall be many more opportunities for your discoveries to be highlighted on these pages. I thank you and the Wunderkammer thanks you for your time. Let the treasures be unearthed.

for the theme recovered, i offer this love+support cuff:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22643779

for hopefully, when you gift it, the person receiving will recover from whatever ails them.

and for the crafty types who'd like to make it their own/personal, she also offers a PIF pattern:
