and I'm an Etsy addict.
It started innocently enough with a Venus staff fave proclaiming the wonders of busterandboo.
Then I discovered scrabble pendants and placed another order from the delightful HomeStudio-- this time with gold accents so they looked nicer with my Indian jewelry.
Then I got glasses and my hair started driving me nuts, so I turned to the site's headband makers for help. Precocious came to the rescue!
I've been wearing these headbands everyday and I love them.
And I finally gave into my desire to own something designed by Emily Martin of The Black Apple.
Maybe the closest thing I will ever have to a self-portrait. But I bet Emily hears that all the time.
And then I bought these paper dolls because OMG, Stella has a Smiths t-shirt and a cat hat.
I want to frame them for Lucy's room.
It's so easy to scoop up all these things that I would love to be able to find locally, and Cary isn't really satisfied with my justifications: "it's handmade! I'm supporting small business women!"
