January Etsy Finds

Time for another Etsy round-up! A new year means a new Pantone Color of the Year, and this year’s pick – marsala – is MUCH better than last year’s. Marsala is actually pretty, and doesn’t hurt the eyes. Also, January tends to be the coldest month here in Austin, and I am already tired of it. I’m dreaming of tropical beaches and 80-degree weather. The second collection down below has colors that remind me of that.

Wind & Waves

Etsy pretty things round-up time! I ran through the gamut of monthly-themed treasuries (which you can see here) so from now on it’ll be whatever random fancy strikes me each month. And after vacation last week, I have beach on the brain. 🙂 So today’s Etsy treasury is all about the seashore – things that remind me of and are made from it. I love the natural feel of some of these pieces. Wind & Waves by Dragonflight Dreams Sea Glass and Tile Mosaic Se… HomeSweetCoast $40 Tiny Sand Dollar Necklace.

Port Aransas

Photo-heavy post warning! Last week we escaped down to Port Aransas on Mustang Island for a few days. It was a 4-hour drive from our place, which isn’t too bad, though some passengers disagreed:   There was a lot of rain on the way down, but it cleared up for a short while right when we arrived. We rented a cute little cottage, just a few blocks from the beach in one direction, and a few blocks from downtown in the other direction. Perfect location.   Check-in wasn’t until 4pm, so our first day there was pretty short. We settled […]

Bits & Pieces

1. We head to Port Aransas and the beach tomorrow! And I’m super excited. Except… I made the mistake of checking the weather forecast: Boo!! I’m hoping those chance of rain percentages go down or are wrong and really mean 0. Because a beach vacation where it rains the whole time was not what I had in mind. I guess I’ll pack extra books just in case.   2. I finally did a big photoshoot and should be adding new listings to the shop today. Mostly paper prints, but a few new made-to-order shirt options, too. I’m also still printing […]
