Wednesday Wish List – Etsy Special
Well, at the moment I can safely say that the top of my wish list is for my internet to be working again! My phone line and broadband have both been down now for 14 days because of a ‘common’ fault all the way in Chatham of all places! So, I am currently writing my Wednesday Wish List from the lovely home of my partner while I leech internet from him for the umpteenth time this week (Thank you mister!) If you guys have been following my Facebook Page you may have noticed that last week marked my first week as an Etsy seller! That’s right, I have finally taken the plunge into the wonderful world of Etsy and so far I am loving it. (You can check out my online store here if you like) So, I thought I would ring in the occasion with an Etsy themed Wednesday Wish List. So, here are a few of the fun things I have found so far while introducing myself to the site.
Starting off with a piece of beautiful art (which is the primary reason I love Etsy) depicting one of my favourite little characters, Totoro. I love how illustrative this is and the watercolour look. I would personally love to have a copy of this up on my wall. And at only £7.97 for a poster print, this is a steal for any Miyazaki fan.
I have been finding a lot of snail shells around this year, and while this might make me sorta sad (poor little guys), this is a beautiful and unique way to preserve them. I’m also a bit of a pyromaniac so I love covering my house in candles (one of the great things about being a Pagan – SO many candles in the house). These would be perfect for an Earthen altar set up or just a pretty alternative to tea-lights.
Plum Octo Hair Clip – £2.85
There are a whole bunch of these designs from the same seller in varying colours, but I probably like the plum colour best (if anything it would go well with neon blue). I love the shapes and design of octopus art. Ever since working on Viceroy’s ‘The Deep’ set and drawing different forms of octopii, I have loved the style and intricacy of tentacles. They lend themselves really well to art nouveau, which may be another reason I love them.
Sticking with the Octopus theme, I found this sweet little pendant which would also act well as a small statue or figurine. The colours in the glass are gorgeous and I love his cute little face. not sure if I would wear it as a pendant myself or would prefer to display it, but the good thing about it being glass is I would be able to wear it if I wanted to (Remember my weird aversion to metal? Yeah – works with jewelry too)
Ending on a gloriously Gothic note; I LOVE the fabric design of this tote bag. I wish I was still and English Literature student because I would blatantly use this bag to carry my gothic horror novels or Poe anthology! That being said, it is still the perfect bag for Hallowe’en or when I am just in a bit of a Wednesday Addams kind of mood.
Well, that’s it for my first dive into the wonderful world of Etsy. No doubt I will be able to create all sorts of themes from products on this site alone, but next week I will be preparing for my first LAN of the year so expect a video game oriented post. In the mean time, why not check out my own Etsy Store and see if anything there is to your liking and I will speak to you all soon.
