Wednesday Wish List

You know what time it is. The Wednesday wish list is on the menu for today. Along with some pasta and hopefully a burrito. From my mouth to Rob's culinary ears.

If you don't know about Etsy, you should drop everything you are doing right now and go there. (Well, maybe you should finish reading this first. Thanks.) I must warn you though, you may get stuck on this site for the rest of the day and possibly dip into your retirement fund. There is no better place to buy gifts, because everything is handmade and original. No one will open your gift from Etsy and think to themselves, "Great, I already have 3 of these." There are so many talented people out there and this site is a gathering of thousands of them.

Along those lines, everything on today's wish list was found on Etsy. Today I am going to focus on photographs, because there are a zillion beautiful images out there just begging to be framed and displayed. Here are just a few that caught my eye recently. Enjoy!

Places and Moments fine art photo from Yvetteinufio's Etsy store. There is something magical and ethereal about this photo. I just love the quote she chose to accompany it. Beautiful!

Ding Dong photo from GroovinPop's Etsy shop. I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan, which I know why I was immediately drawn to this photo. I just think it's too cool and funky.

Storm Approcahing photo from JudeMcconkey's Etsy shop. The colors in this photo are amazing. I love the contract between the menacing dark cloud and the red lighthouse.

Love will Tear Us Apart photo from Studiocvh's Etsy store. I bought this photo and let me tell you, it's even more beautiful in person. The paper Cathy prints on compliments her work perfectly.

And last but not least, this Cupcake with Rainbow Sprinkles photo from TulipPhotographicArt's Etsy shop. I really love this photo because of the gorgeous colors and the composition. And NO, it has absoultely nothing to do with the fact that I'm pregnant and could do a face plant into a cupcake right now.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  1. I love the one with the balloons and the suitcase. It felt hopeful to me for some reason. The quote was very cool.
