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

Etsomnia™ 323: Boos Hound


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.

Since the beginning of Covid, I feel like the seasons keep speeding up and slowing down. I’m constantly perplexed by the calendar. For example, somehow, tomorrow is October 1. How is that even possible? I feel like it should be mid-July at the latest. But as disorienting as the calendar’s progress is lately, I am still excited by the beginning of HALLOWEEN SEASON!!! So although I don’t know how we got here, today’s Etsomnia™ is in honor of my favorite holiday!

Want to wear holiday-themed jewelry but tired of stupid old pumpkins and skeletons? Why not sport these kidneys on ice instead? They’ll certainly be conversation starters! Or possibly enders.

  4. I have been pre-gaming Halloween since the end of August. One of my sons and I put together a movie festival of spooky movies just for our family and planning that was all the spark I needed to get into Halloween mode.

    I absolutely love those plates and, like you, would happily use them year round. I also love the bat stained glass and would also use that all year round. I think I have mentioned before that my youngest brother has a phobia of sunflowers so I bet those skull sunflowers are how he always sees them.

  5. There is something very, very wrong about that piece of candy corn in the last photo . . .

  6. Also, Laura, if Donna gets that 3-D printer, the disembodied hands could become an issue./
