Tuesday Treats

Gah! Thanksgiving is over, and we can all finally get into the Christmas spirit. It seems to me that Christmas is a huge freakin-deal in the blogging community. Everyone is doing their Christmas-themed posts, whether it be wish-lists or DIY projects.

I want to share with you a couple of items on my Etsy wish-list. Because I have been really struggling with materialism the past few months, I’m only listing three pieces. Ever since Karina’s accident, I’ve been wanting to acquire things and buy gifts for myself that I really don’t need. It’s some weird death-related thing I’m going through. I think especially with blogs these days, it is easy to look at another girl’s blog and say things like, “Ugh, I want that dress.” or “Why does her life seem so easy.” or “Look at all these pretty things that I don’t have that she has.” Now generally, I’m not a jealous person. But I think that blogging can stir jealousy in any woman. So let’s all be careful about that, ESPECIALLY since it is Christmas and all.

Sleeping Fox Art Print

Okay, so this isn’t on Etsy, but it’s the same idea! I’m kinda obsessed with Paper Sparrow. Her artwork is INCREDIBLE. I will definitely be getting one of her pieces very soon.

Forest Cowl in Chartreuse

I’ve never bought an item from YesJess, but I’ve always wanted to. My neck gets REALLY cold in the winter, so this was basically made for me.

Turquoise Stripe ruffle headband

And this headband. I love Sugar Blossom’s pieces. They are SO different. I would never be able to find something like this anywhere else!

What a great observation (and great reflection!)
Thanks for sharing.

Also, all three of these pieces are SUPER cute.

Both the scarf (neck warmer?) and headband are adorable! And I totally agree- it's easy to get swept up in wanting so much more than we need when reading other blogs
