101. FRONT PAGE!?!

So an item from my shop finally made it to the FP on Etsy . It was at about 5 AM my time, so I didn't see it in person, but I got a screencap! It was a beautiful treasury and I am so proud! Also, the peacock sold! Great news all around! I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Don't forget to check out my giveaway ! Happy weekend!

099. baby's second and third treasuries!

My second and third treasuries! I'm so excited because they are gorgeous. Check them out here and here .

098. etsy shop update 6/12.

Happy Saturday! It's a bit rainy and grey here in Central Jersey, so our plans to have another yard sale today are ruined. I won't let that bring me down though! I've got a new tripod, a freshly charged camera battery, and unlimited amounts of coffee. Today, I will see a lot of Etsy and Ebay listing form pages, and I'm excited for it. I really need to get rid of most of my things. I just have too much and no need for most of it. Also, I want to be able to afford a home in the next five years, and every little bit helps, right? Check out the new items in my Etsy shop below. And tell your friends! ;) Vintage FOURTH OF JULY White Laced Magdesians Oxford Heels Size 7 Vintage INDEPENDENCE Blue Dress Vintage WICKER White Woven Shoes Size 10 Vintage OXFORD Navy and White Heels Size 6 B Vintage METALLIC Etienne Aigner Leather Heels Vintage SEPIA Brown Pearl Necklace Vintage ICE QUEEN Blue Clip-on Earrings Vintage ROCK CANDY Blue and Green Necklac

097. cigarette pack novels.

I saw this on Twitter this morning. Pretty great idea, I think. When you order Tank Books ' new set of classic novels, they arrive in classic flip-flop style cigarette packs, wrapped in foil and in sealed cellophane wrapping. If you order all six —featuring works by Conrad, Hemingway, Kafka, Kipling, Stevenson and Tolstoy—they come in a stylish tobacco tin (pictured). Another great argument for the book as beautiful object, rather than binary data stream. ( DesignYouTrust ) via .

096. got 42 seconds to spare?

A combination of "Newsies" and Gaga. Does it get better than this? via .
