Eight wantable things I found on Etsy this afternoon

Hello! How are things?

I am good. I am cramming in as much craft as possible, between work-y things. This sometimes makes it hard to do bloggy things, but I am making a break for it RIGHT NOW. I’m ignoring the light-box that is begging me to switch it on and transfer some designs from paper to fabric (for embroidering later on.) The truth is, the light is failing and it’s MUCH better to embroider in good, bright day light. Blogging seems like a MUCH more eye-saving, non-crap-stitch encouraging thing to do instead.

Can I talk to you one thing, before I talk about the things I found on Etsy?

Okay. Well. Princess Charlotte. Today I looked at her tiny little first birthday face and I thought ‘Hello!! You are growing up so fast!’

And then… I wondered what her life will be like and if she will turn 13 or 14 and the press might start picking her apart, in the way they tend to do. I don’t want that to happen. I hope they don’t look at her clothes and her face and her hair-do and her body shape and start talking about ANY OF THOSE THINGS. I’m launching the (for now, imaginary) #LeaveCharlotteAlone campaign in response to these worries. Sigh.

(I know that she will have a privileged life in other ways, but there’s no amount of after dinner mints served on silver platters and ironed undies and Gran-bought pied a terres that would make up for the scrutiny she is bound to face. #LeaveCharlotteAlone)

Now let’s talk about other things.

Here are EIGHT wantable things I found on Etsy today!
