As soon as I clapped eyes on this gorgeous knife, I ordered one. Wonder what I should stab first? By CaptainKeepsake

As soon as I clapped eyes on these gorgeous knives, I knew I had to have one. Wonder what I should stab first? By CaptainKeepsake

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)

Of course, since I’m celebrating pride week, today’s Etsomnia™ is all about the rainbows! Since I found so many items I loved, this week’s episode has a lot fewer tragedies than usual.

As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts. Enjoy!

Test tube chandelier by PaniJurek

Ingenious test tube chandelier. You can fill the tubes with water of whatever color you wish! On the downside, though, eventually, they would fill with dust and dead bugs. By PaniJurek

I love the colors in this sea glass necklace by LinaColors, but with all of those beautiful color options, why would you put the muddiest ones in the center?

Fantastic custom-painted Converse high-tops by FeslegenDesign. Wonder how they’d hold up in the rain . . .

I thought this was unbearably cute until I realized the listing is for an adult-sized costume. Awkward. By TheCostumeCafe

Have you ever seen one of these crocheted monokinis when they come out of the water? By SenoAccessory

Have you ever seen a crocheted monokini when it comes out of the water? It droops and sags, and the bottom strongly resembles a full diaper.

I think  she and the cat are in cahoots. I’ve seen this movie, and it doesn’t end well.

  5. The toddler rainbow is adorable and the stained glass panel makes me wish for larger windows. But some of those items manage to turn a beautiful rainbow into something ghastly.

  7. I love rainbow coloured thing, however, apart from the lovely swirly rainbow coat and pointy hat combo that jumper was horrid!

  8. Should I be at all concerned that I rather like a good few of the items in this volume of Etsomnia? I was taken with that chandelier until I realized the drops were tubes and would, therefore, as you pointed out just become a breeding ground for a new apocalyptic plague. I would love those rainbow converse. I’m happy to report, however, that I did still find several listings appalling. That jumper with the horse head arm was repugnant.
