My Weird and Wonderful Wishlist

Last month, Sarah post some great bookish items and jewelry from her Etsy wishlist. I immediately sent her a message about how vastly different our wishlist items are. There is no method to my madness when it comes to saving things. I’ve got plushie moths, Dolly Parton artwork, and vintage plates that have been decorated with images of David Bowie. Sometimes the internet is great. Here are a handful of items from my very own … Continue reading My Weird and Wonderful Wishlist

I know everyone has a hand cream they swear by, and I would love … Continue reading Stuff We Like: Giving Your Hands a Gift
