Etsy should have a flashing pop-up to alert visitors of its addictive properties. Seriously, someone needs to take my credit card away before things get out of hand. My latest purchase was a vintage brass bird, termed a “Funky Brass Goose” by it’s seller. I am normally not drawn to tchotchkes and the like, but you have to see this goose…..he was just too cute to pass up!
Now the big question: Where am I going to put him? For now, that question remains unanswered. He’s been migrating from room to room looking for the perfect home. When he finds his nest I’ll let you know.
Since we’re on the subject of Etsy, I might as well share the stories of a few other purchases.

These gift tags made from old Dr. Seuss books made perfect “Thank you for coming” party favour tags for my son’s 1st birthday:
I bought these mod retro ABC blocks for my son. They came packaged in a darling little cotton drawstring bag, personalized with his name. Not only was his name on the bag but the bocks were placed in a plastic sleeve in such a way to spell out his name. How cute is that? I was very impressed with this seller’s attention to detail and customer service. Take note – a great baby gift!
Then there were these vinatge maps that I turned into a DIY collage for my son’s room:
What’s up next on my Etsy shopping list? Likely throw pillows for the bedroom. Something along these lines…
