Wednesday Want: Charming Coat by xiaolizi on Etsy (2)

Wednesday Wants is a weekly (ahem) post featuring things that I, as a starving artist, would like to one day have in my dream house and/or wardrobe.

This week I have something of the latter for you:

My favorite find on the internet this week has been the Charming Coat by xiaolizi on Etsy.

I love this fun, fanciful coat. I’m probably too short to wear it, and at $129 it’s a little out of my price range, but so, so cute. And really not unreasonable in price at all… don’t you think?

Wednesday Wants (1)

Once upon a time I had a thriving craft blog. Since I’ve been focusing on writing, I had to let it go, until I went so long without updating it that I felt as if it was a lost cause. I’ve missed sharing those types of things, though, and thought maybe showing a bit of my personality outside of the writing realm might not be the worst thing in the world, so I’m going to try to mix the two together a bit. I’m kicking this off today by revamping my once-popular Wednesday Wants series, where I highlight Etsy finds that I envy. It’s my little way of celebrating independent businesses. After all, even  a starving artist can dream, right? 😉

And this is my little collection for this week!

Pink Grapefruit Whipped Cream Soap by YouStinkSoap

Pink Grapefruit Whipped Cream Soap by YouStinkSoap

I have a confession. Grapefruit is possibly my favorite scent in the world. It’s probably my favorite fruit (after ripe strawberries, because come on). And the idea of whipped soap is… mmmm. Too good to be true! I love Youstinksoap. I ordered a trio of lip balms a while ago and love, love, love them (Lime Sugar and Asian Pear? Yeah.) So yeah. This is a big want.

Recycled T-Shirt Pom Pom Pillow in Baby Pink MINI by talkingsquid

Isn’t this the squishiest looking pillow ever? talkingsquid has made pom pom pillows out of recycled t-shirts (she makes floor rugs t00) and I think they’re so cool! My dream house is covered in these colorful poms. I love ’em!

Cute hearty red owl clutch purse by misala

Lastly I have this delightful little owl clutch purse by misala. She has so many cute items I don’t know what to do with myself. This little owl clutch purse just stole my heart the minute I saw it. How clever of her to make animal clutches! Too cute! Want!

So that’s my first edition of Wednesday Wants on this blog. Do you have any Etsy finds you’d like to share?
