What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 239: Let’s Get Nauty*


*Misspelling intentional

Admitting you have a problem is the first step…

Etsom·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.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

After nearly four months out of commission, our teensy nautical-themed guest room is very nearly ready to be decorated for guests again, so I’ve been thinking lately about nautical decor. The problem with doing an Etsomnia nautical edition is that I’m such a huge fan of the theme, I really had to dig to find things to make us laugh. From the predictable-but-beautiful to the one-of-a-kind, it was all I could do not to shop for myself. I’m a real sucker for nautical stuff, no matter how corny!

  1. I didn’t know when I woke up this morning it would be snorting tea after seeing a machine-gun-wielding bear surfing on a shark. Thank you, I think. The sentiment was actually made me laugh. Truth unforgettably reimagined.

  2. I laughed so much at that bear and shark dramatic scene. I have to applaud the imagination of whoever created that. The rope belt has to be one of the laziest Etsy items I have ever seen. They didn’t even bother to knot it! I LOVE that seaglass light in your intro. I am full on Golluming over it. I don’t have the money for it and don’t have a place to put it but “I needs it!” I have favourited the NauticalNell shop because I see loads of items that would be perfect for my octopus themed brother.


  3. Thank you Donna for this wonderful list! And Thank you for including my whimsical lighthouse and sail boat miniature 😊
