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

Etsomnia™ 314: Daddy Issues II…


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.

This week’s Etsomnia™ is dedicated to all the fathers out there. I hope this year’s gifts are worthy of your patience and kindness and humor. I don’t think the chances are good that will happen, but I still hope it for you.

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

I get that they’re 18K gold and antique, but they’re still hideous. Save your money and give him an ugly tie instead.
If you’re going down the dad joke rabbit hole, why not go all the way? By LettuceBuildaHouse
I guess this is for amateur grillers. I assume once you’re experienced griller, you can move from crayons to paints.
This is kind of sweet! By zoeysattic
I fail to see how derpy nuns relate to Father’s Day, even if it is a Botero.
This would be an absolutely magnificent Father’s Day gift for an accountant! By ASimplerTimeShop

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. I probably shouldn’t comment on most of today’s posts. I do love the gas can. So there is at least one bright spot. Hal

  2. Some of these are definitely interesting. Of course, I had to click on “this guy” to see who you meant. 🙂 A few of these are nice though. I wish I had that card to send to a new dad I know.

  3. Always good to see some works from Botero. I was introduced to his work on my trip to Colombia (I got back home a couple of days before the pandemic shut everything down) and now I am truly a big fan….and, I have no idea how this is connected to Father’s day….but I am not too fussed.

  4. Your cover picture of the man in sandals with socks reminds me of the father of my children. He rarely wears anything other than his Birks, he even wore them at our son’s wedding! He rarely wears socks with them but once commented, in Texas, there is sandal weather and weather that might tempt one to wear socks with the sandals.

    • LOL. My father owned one pair of what are now known as shower shoes, which he would wear with white socks during his once-per-year trip to the beach. That cover photo, by the way, is a pair of socks printed with sandals. Clever and repulsive at the same time!
