Wednesday Wishlist: Birds

June 19, 2013 at 8:25 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

This week’s Wednesday Wishlist is… BIRDS. I have a thing for birds. It’s sad and depressing, when I explain it, because my fondness for birds comes from a sad place… actually, a sad song. The line in the song is “Woe is me, oh woe, And the birds sing no more, Without you I cannot be.” That’s just a little tid bit from the song, but it’s probably my favorite sad song, ever. It also sounds much prettier in German. Trust me.

However. I had come to own this amazing bird ring. It reminds me of the song because this bird doesn’t sing. It’s made by a really awesome lady, over at GriffinsNestJewelry (The photo will take you to the birdie ring listing.)

Wednesday Wishlist: The Professional

June 12, 2013 at 8:04 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

When I was a kid, my dad and I had a weekly movie night thing. I’m sure my love of horror films comes from all this. Friday and Saturday nights, we’d sit on the couch, he’d fix us something or other, (remember, my dad was a terrible cook, except or all of 6 things he cooked really well) So, popcorn, trail mix, a can of mixed nuts he got at Blain’s Farm and Fleet. I vaguely remember us trying to bake cookies ONCE, and I remember being terrified when they started to burn and the oven spewed black smoke. The fire alarm and alarm system went off, and the fire department showed up. Anyway, as a kid, we watched Dracula, The Swamp Thing, Creep Show, Nosferatu, Frankinstein’s Monster, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jurassic Park, Jaws, just to name a few. One of my favorite movies, of all time, out of the thousands of movies I’ve watched in my life: The Professional. It has got to be in my top 10 (my list of favorites is in no real order, but it’s in the top 10).

Not only that, The Professional has a pretty awesome cast. Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, and Natalie Portman. Throw Liam Neeson in there and the movie’s epicness could be fetal! 🙂 Anyway, I wanted to share my top picks of The Professional related Etsy items- Because it’s related to one of the most awesome movies ever, and, the items themselves are really amazing.

Wednesday Wishlist: Rain

May 29, 2013 at 7:37 am (Etsy, Shopping, Wednesday Wishlist)

Lately, it’s been raining a whole ton. I hate it. Normally, I like rain, and non-destructive storms. However, our basement flooded, so I’m unhappy about that. All this rainy weather has inspired my Wednesday Wishlist for this week.
