I'm having a serious case of the Mondays today, so I'm going to continue with last week's theme and do an overdramatic Etsy lovefest.
Last week, I posted about my deep, burning desire for a new wallet. In response to this, thousands of you contacted me. (Okay, one of you contacted me, and I may or may not be related to said person.) And of the millions (okay, one) suggestions presented, one (yes, the only one) stood out.
The Owls of Athena Passport Wallet is so beautiful, so wonderful, I want it. It is made by glassbeach and though I have never shopped with her before, her feedback is great, and everything in the store looks incredibly well made. If you get a chance, please go buy the owl wallet, and remove it from my temptation. It is far too large for my smallest purse, so if I bought that, I'd then have to buy yet another wallet, and even though I want to desperately, I am a poor broke ninjapirateknitter.
Cuff I would sell my dog for
I didn't even know I wanted a leather wrist cuff until I saw this one. I typically avoid cuffs because they can draw attention to the arm chub I seem so intent on rocking. This one, though, is styled in such a way that I think it would look lovely on any size arm. The shape is different from what I am used to seeing, and the design is absolutely beautiful. Ne want. Ne want BAD. Anyway, while you are there, check out the artist's store: sunnyrising Everything there is gorgeous. I could go bankrupt given the right manic moment.
I would feel like a bad member of the AntiCraft staff if I didn't encourage you at least once to make something. To that end, I found the Amigurumi Goldfish by AmyGaines makes me happy. I want to make a goldfish, buy a small fishbowl, some pebbles, and a fake plant or two, and set it all up as someone in this house I wouldn't have to feed.
If you have suggestions for future Etsy Love posts (as there will probably be more) please comment with links, themes, whatever. Any chance to continue window shopping is a good one.
Well, not to toot my own horn (or completely to toot my own horn), check out arachknits knitting needles. A new pair of needles will be added every day around 5:30 until I run out. I just bought enough material to make over 20 more pairs, so there should be a new pair every day for a while. Forgive the poor photos. I will retake them soon.
And I blame you for them being on there. I was looking for a way to sell them and the next day you posted about Etsy. So, your fault...
What about some yarn love? www.doodlebirds.com (goes to etsy) I loves me so yarn (and I loves me my yarn) Pretty colors, free shipping and I am pretty sure there will be a sale very soon as a dyer goes to loose a body part. So there will be a loose a body part sale.
