Cinco de Mayo is less than two weeks away. Anybody need a sombrero? Or perhaps the limited edition Margarita cocktail hat.
Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was an Italian painter who created portraits of people out of fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, and other objects - animate and inanimate. Here's an example of his work:

Arcimboldo's work inspired Buffalo to create a modern update on the theme. Behold, the Junk Food Mask:
Valentine's Day is only 18 days away. Have you got a gift for your sweetheart? Buffalo makes raffia flowers that can be used individually or fashioned into a bouquet. No wilting roses that lose their petals after a day or two and cuter than silk flowers. She can do custom bouquets with the flowers of your choice. See the raffia flowers section of the Etsy shop for details.
Mardi Gras is February 13 - less than a month away. Buffalo has tons of merchandise that would be perfect for Mardi Gras celebrations: silly felt hats, needlelace masks, silly raffia hats, awesome raffia masks. Some favorites are pictured below.

Buffalo's Egyptian headdresses have been popular in the Etsy store so she made some more. Click on the images to go to the store listings.
We finally have some of Buffalo's wonderful themed shirts available for sale on Etsy. Due to copyright issues, not all of the shirts are listed (e.g. the Day of the Dead shirt with R2D2 and C3PO sugar skulls is not listed because Disney has been known to be litigious). I'm not entirely sure what Etsy's policy is on this score but we are erring on the side of caution.
The six shirts that are available are:
Buffalo made a bunch of new shirts from various fabrics with hand-sewn buttonholes and charming novelty buttons. Contrasting fabric on the underside of the collars. There are too many photos for a gallery so I put them in a slideshow below. I included some closeups of the buttons, because they are awesome. Love the mermaid shirt (again with the mermaids!) but I think the "Hunks for the Holidays" is my favorite. Love how she managed to find Christmas, Valentine's, Halloween, and 4th of July fabric with hunks on them.
