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

Etsomnia™ 262: Spring Theory


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.

I wish this were a normal spring. The lucky ones among us (like me and Beloved) are stuck inside, and the essential workers that still have to go out into the world probably aren’t taking a ton of time to appreciate the beginnings of the season. So I thought we could use an injection of happy and pretty and fresh. No snark or derp this week. We could all use a little joy.

I really love my vintage kimonos, and wear them every time I get a chance. They can’t hold a candle to this glorious (and expensive) piece of art! Sold by ShopMorphew

  1. OMG, those two embroidered dresses…I almost swooned myself into a faint over them! I was ever so slightly disappointed when you said you’d be withholding your usual snark, but you came through for me in the end. Thanks Donna, for all the beauty and a touch of sass…it’s why I love you so much. 🙂 ❤

  4. I normally cannot abide orange clothing – because it brings out the green in my skin – but I am swooning over that kimono. I also love that fabric embroidered with florals. My mother used to have a collection of glass flowers she picked up from jumble sales and junk shops. I will need to ask her if she still has them. Random family factoid: one of my sisters has a phobia of hydrangeas.

  5. That dress almost makes me want to get married again! Almost.

  6. I’ve had a similar problem with online shopping. I need to learn to browse and let it go! Otherwise debt looms for me!
