from BROOKLYN rehab

i love BROOKLYNrehab one of my favorite etsy shops to poke around in when i have time....and to purchase things from when i really just can't take it anymore! alyssa has a fantastic eye for a mix of vintage -- the industrial, the quirky, and the folksy--- the kind of vintage that smacks of bygone eras, a sense of history and originality. in addition, when you visit alyssa's shop you will find vintage inspired hand crafted designs-- cast porcelain gnomes, & petite squirrels, drenched in a pure white milky glaze--or a cast porcelain branch for your wall ( these may not be available anymore...sorry). or one of her completely charming necklaces-- my favorites are her wooden key, or porcelain bow necklaces. each item she sells is completely charming and fascinating!!

i was so excited to open my package from her --- even my husband loves my kitschy, yet unearthly gnome, and sweet squirrels--and my beautiful pristine branch, complete with wood grain details--- now i just need a special shelf for them, because they must be featured!! thank you alyssa-- i love them--so very much!!!



  1. They are really beautiful--pristine is the right word--and thank you for sharing them with us...now it remains to be seen how long I can take it before I can't take it anymore and succume! :-)

  2. agreed .. BROOKLYNrehab is a shop filled with wondrous finds and creations. What a delightful post Kathi .. :)

    happy weekend to you and your family!

  5. oh they have an "a" pin that I have had my eye on for forever!

    Enjoy your goodies!


  6. I made one of my funny typos again Kath, haha!
    What I meant to say;

    Oh, what a wonderful buys!! That gnome is too cute.. Will he and the squirrels be modelling in your shop? They'll love to dress up, I'm sure ;-)

  7. thank you for such a nice post and the kind words. i treasure your friendship. it is so wonderful to have such creative and supportive friends.


  8. Kathi--another mispelling from me--I meant to say 'succumb'. :-)

  9. --- i love typos!!! they really spice things up- and look--it brought everyone back for a 2nd visit- hah! i do the same thing.. i reread something i've written AFTER i've posted it and then realize it's goofy-- sometimes funny, and sometimes embarrassing, so i stop back and correct it...!

    alyssa-- you are more than welcome. your wonderful shop is a reflection of your wonderful self! i really love your eye for design and your sense of humor & play ... really fun and original!!


    and simone--- the gnome and squirrels may have to do some modeling... or at least the branch!!
    :) :)

    and dawn--did you succumb yet? i would have made a typo with that one too....
