We've complained before about how challenging it can be to meet your little one's demand for "car decorations" without caving to the usual multigazillion-dollar franchises. Kelly Ventura is a Chicago-based artist whose Etsy shop, The Urban Thimble, offers vehicular collages that have the power to please every generation.

Made using paper, fabric and thread, each framed collage is an original piece of art. And if you're not into all things automotive, that's okay: The Urban Thimble also offers collages that apply Kelly's whimsical approach to snails, octopi, and flowers.

Prices range from $65 to $185 for each framed and signed piece.
