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

Etsomnia™ 272: Pride Finery

6 Comments

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.

Happy Pride week! Every June, Beloved and I find ourselves in the mood for unusual pride jewelry, but even during a normal year, ordering it in June pretty much assures that it won’t come until long after the month is over. So this year, since there are no public pride celebrations anyway, I’ve decided I’ll just find what I want, and wear it next year.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Note: Necklace from FeltAndGem removed per the seller’s request because she considers herself “neutral” on the subject of LGBTQ pride.
