I wonder what's new at DaWanda?

I feel like I've been featuring a lot of items from Etsy lately so I thought it was about time I floated around some of the other big trading sites that are there for handmade/crafted goods. Today I picked DaWanda and clicked on the "New Arrivals" section. I stuck with the English site of the 3 they have on offer as my French and German aren't all that great. I was pleasantly surprised at the variety I found.

This pretty little bag was the first thing to catch my eye. It was made by Nunofelt and is a great example of felting, both needle and wet. The colours are so warm and cheerful, great for brightening up any outfit. Nuno has lots of other gorgeous and unusual items in her shop and all are very reasonably priced.

Is green your colour? These gorgeous wire wrapped earrings from Natural Jewels, with their Jade and Aventurine stones, look so intricate and delicate. They could be worn with a classic gown or a t-shirt and jeans and not look out of place. Natural Jewels shop has a cohesive look to it with many other pieces that echo the style of these lovely earrings.

Just added is this pretty printed dress for a toddler. Stella-Luna's shop tag line is RetroKinder and that pretty much explains what she sells. Colourful retro style clothes for young children and babies. The fabrics she uses are eye catching and fun and the clothing has a definite European feel. Now I just need to find a baby that I can buy some of them for!

Zimbo is a cuddly fleecy monster that longs to be scary, but sadly for him, just isn't. He's so cute you just want to scoop him up and smoosh him! He is one of a whole gang of plushie Fluffles made by Mariska. I've fallen in love with Otto. I might have to adopt him.

This piece is called "we follow the sun" and is presented as an 8" x 8" print. It was created by Seasprayblue. I like the seed head shapes and the texture the piece has. I think it would look gorgeous framed in a plain light wood frame hung in a group of her other work.

So that was my little trip through DaWanda's newly listed pages. There are hundreds of other lovely goods there. Why not go and take a look at what's on offer. I'm sure you'll come across something you will love.
