From time to time I find myself losing hours scrolling, searching, and oohing on Etsy. I’ve mentioned this once or twice, maybe. Three times? Ok, a lot. Sometimes we just need a little something, right? Picking out a prize is a toddler-sized fix-it for adult-sized problems. Growing up we never shopped as a coping method to make us feel better. As a young girl, Mama didn’t want me to learn to seek social acceptance because I bought the right clothes or shoes, or even brand new. I think this stuck. My love for things salvaged came from her. It’s grown into loving one-of-a-kind pieces, rehab-able pieces, steals, deals, sales, and all-around uniqueness. I hope to raise my daughter to love Target, hand-made, and I hope she loves random. And not worry about what the label says. Class is a trait you carry around in how you walk, up around your shoulders, in your eyes. I want her to learn to love beautiful things, and things that make her feel beautiful. Or just happy!
Sometimes a little something for a few dollars just makes me really happy. A lot of times it’s actually in finding the perfect gift for someone else. I thought for this rainy day I would pull some of my favorites for you from Etsy. Some of them make me think of people I love, and some of them seem as if they’re made just for me! Enjoy. And click the pics to jump to the seller. Look around and lose some hours. It’s fun.
A little foxy mug!
Letterpress calling cards. I really want some of these!
Definitely ordering this soon for Aurelia’s room!
Jadeite. (making o-face)
You could say I have a thing for bows…
Dying over these gold mugs!
I also die over white ceramic animals. And seriously? Who doesn’t need an antelope?
I hope your day is a great one! Maybe you should get yourself a little prize.
