Tuesday’s Treasure – A little of this, a little of that

Escape From The City

Escape From The City

Red and White (Made In Texas)

Red and White (Made In Texas)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any treasuries, so I thought I’d share a couple from the end of last year that I thought you might like. The first one is clever, titled “Escape From The City,” featuring city and travel themed listings, including our JuJu Eyeball sparkly roach earrings. The next treasury follows one of my favorite themes – local! It’s also a Valentine theme, I suppose, in red and white. This is the first time any of my new harnesses have been featured – exciting!

(I apologize that I didn’t post these treasuries sooner – some items that were featured have already sold.)

So, if one of your new year’s resolutions involves buying locally, or supporting handmade/artisans/small business (and good for you for making that resolution,) this is a great place to start. Etsy can be a little overwhelming, even if you do a specific search, and treasuries can be a quick, aesthetically pleasing way to shop.

The weather has been consistently sunny for the past few days here in DFW, so I think, after a quick trip to the pharmacy, I’ll break out the new camera the hubby gave me for Christmas and take some photos for the shop.

Hope your new year has been wonderful so far!

Friday’s Favorites – Valentine Edition

Time to spread the Valentine love, and share some of our most recent favorites on Etsy:

Cassette Tape Papercut by squirrelandfox

 

Pink Elephants by maybesparrowsplace

 

1950s Fenton Glass Perfume Pitcher by crazydreamz

 

Vintage Silk Cocktail Dress by chiffonier

 (Of course, there’s plenty more romance where that came from! Just search EtsyXO or Valentine’s Day on etsy.com to find it.)
 
I have a love/hate relationship with the holiday (who doesn’t?) but I just have this image, combining all of the items above, of wearing that dress while pouring a yummy spritzer from the Fenton vase as the hubby opens his awesome papercut card and the cute little pachyderms look on from the background. Of course, we’re in a dreamy vintage kitchen, complete with sky blue fridge and diner-style breakfast table. And a million dollars and a pony, because, what the heck, it’s my fantasy and I can have what I want.
 
In reality, we’ll be taking our nerdy selves to the Sci-Fi Expo tomorrow to celebrate. Next best thing, don’t you think? Maybe I’ll rub elbows with Eliza Dushku.

Friday’s Favorites – A Quick Getaway

I’m so excited about this weekend! Tom and I are going to the “A Weekend To Remember” marriage retreat in Grapevine. We’ll be attending seminars and doing fun activities together. We have a date night planned for Saturday, and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. We rarely get to do this kind of thing – taking little mini vacations. Heck, we don’t even get to take big vacations, except for the occasional trip to Louisiana to see his side of the family. Anyway, I’m just geekily happy. I’m already mostly packed and ready to go.

So, today’s favorites are all about the perfect getaway:

Robin's Egg Blue Luggage by PlaceMichel

Vintage Safari Sun Hat by nickandnessies

Handmade Miniature Leather Book Necklace - The Journey by peaseblossomstudio

Nova by BonnieJones

Vintage 1970s Wildflower Meadow White Sundress by RevolvingStyles

Happy trails!
