foxy

I was so excited when I learnt that the lovely Karena from Magic Jelly had given me an honourable mention in her fox-themed Haiku competition. She sent me this beautiful necklace as a runner-up prize. (You can see the stunning first prize here, and the amazing winning Haiku here).
I'm fairly addicted to the Magic Jelly blog at the moment. Karena's illustrations are inspired by vintage picture books, postcards and ephemera and she features things I love such as old postcard collections and vintage cats. She's a collage expert and her Flickr pages are full of inspiration. Her shop will be opening soon and I'm waiting for this with great anticipation!
Here are some other cute vintage and vintage-inspired foxes I've found. The Soviet badge, above, for example looks super wily and cunning! I love the bright colours too.
While these Cheap Charlie vintage brooches picture the fox as an elegant creature, perhaps influenced by the idea of expensive fox fur stoles?
Here's a cute little collage fox brooch, made from a vintage picture book and mounted on wood. I'm loving all the cute jewellery made from vintage paper in Mimi And Lucy's Etsy shop. They have some adorable kittens and squirrels too!
In case you hadn't realised, there is an incredible Paper Sparrow sale going on at the moment! So you can get this fabulous fox ring, for example. (I have ordered the owl buttons and beautiful Fall tree print).
Look at this charming vintage woodland creatures Christmas card! I found it here. But I will be looking out for other vintage images of foxes (and all kinds of other images) on Graphics Fairy. This is a site I found recently full of amazing free clip-art made from vintage ephemera. It's simply brilliant!

Update! I almost forgot to link to a lovely post full of truly fantastic foxy finds from Laura of Blue Eyed Night Owl: click here to continue the fox fun, and don't miss her regular 'Spotted' posts - she has amazing taste and an eye for really special things!
