I am not feeling well. it’s my insomnia. It’s always around, preventing me from being a functional human being by day and making me plain miserable at night. It sometimes comes in bouts that are worse than other times. This is one of those bouts. My eyes hurt. My brain is operating at 1%. I want to take a shower, but I’m not sure I can do all that standing.
So I’m going to allow myself to spend the day window shopping on Etsy. The greatest thing about it? It’s not strictly a waste of time. Imagine that!
Let me explain. This morning, bleary-eyed and cloudy-minded, I curated my first Treasury list. And oh boy, was it fun. By publishing these treasuries, I can also drive traffic to my shop and find new admirers by attracting people with similar taste. I’m working, dammit!
So why am I here, mindlessly blogging on about Treasuries? I’m off make another one.
I’ve also somehow managed to list one new item today. I think in my tired state I may have seriously under-priced it. Get it, before I come to my senses.
Hermes Rocket 1950’s Portable Typewriter. Click the image to shop.
Silverplated and enameled stunner by Reed & Barton.
I’ll probably say this again and again: All of my treasures are a little difficult to let go of, which is why this beauty has been collecting dust on my shelf for for several years. Silverplated bowl with green enameled interior. $30 on Etsy.
My first item! It’s such a slow process getting started.
Vintage 60’s or 70’s Handmade Stoneware Pottery – Large Cookie Jar -$45 – Available on Etsy.
This large, heavy stoneware jar has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. The handmade quality is remarkable. The detail in the pattern is so unusual, and it gives the piece a depth and visual texture. So unique in size and design. Like all of my finds, it’s so hard letting go.
