Alyssa at BROOKLYNrehab does a kind of "where are they now" and I think it is so fun to see where all her goodies end up. Which is usually in some famous artist's loft or a follow etsyian that I drool over. Zoe sent me these. AWESOME. Her apartment is awesome!!!! Thanks Z!
The biggest problem with finding treasures is the lack of time to actually take pictures of post the goodies to my etsy shop. So these photos of a wonderful old child's iron fire engine toy will have to due for now.
It is no secret that I am a packing ummm, lady of the night. Well, a packaging whore really. I will buy things just for the packaging if I like it enough. Oh a big box of dog barf all wrapped up with slick typography, a pretty ribbon and shiny colors, I'm take three! So when I had to come up with some labels for my picture holders I was of course stuck. Hopefully this will lure people into buying these as they sit on the shelves in a cute little shop in Lancaster County.
A customer wanted to see the wooden spool I have for sale posed upright. So I had the worlds more famous super model pose with it. That's Marley, my old bitch. She had a very hard life before she came to us and now lives the life eating biscuits, sleeping on memory foam beds and eating all the tortoise poop she wants.
I finally got out of the house today and went on a treasure hunt. aaaagggggggrrrrr. Shhhhh! Don't tell Alliebeans about that yellow Mikasa sugar bowl and matching creamer. She likely to cut her Hong Kong trip short to fly back here and steal it from me with her Mid Century Stealth Stealing Ninja ways. At some point I will be listing these in the shop.
My best etsy friend Stacy and I continually email each other etsy listings that are either weird, gross, funny, or really, really strange and comment to each about them. I thought it would be funny to show you some of those etsy "finds".
Ear Flap Headband by jecka. I think it is the seriousness of the model that makes me want to buy one of these.
This is glass "massager" as InfiniteCosmosGirl calls it. Ummm, I didn't even know your could buy friends like this on etsy.
And I guess while we are on the subject of, well fun! PVC Corset with Super Cut Bat Wing Garter Belt. I don't normall wear garter belts, but if the time comes that I need one, I think I will choose this one from idolatre
About two weeks ago T. and I had to say goodbye to our beloved Great Dane Cooper. It was all quite sudden and unexpected. Needless to say our hearts are broken and things just aren't quite the same without our gentlest of giants. Marley and Oliver our other two Danes are experiencing the loss as well. It is so funny how life goes sometimes. Yesterday at the dog wash someone dropped off these two cuties that they found running on the FREEWAY! I suspect that they are feral since their ~7 week old paws are worn down and dirty and they were COVERED in fleas. T. and I are fostering them for about a month until they are ready for adoption.
