My new favorite things

Coasters in their cozy

I have a bit of an etsy problem. I surf that site as if I’m paid by the hour to do so. It’s my go to store whenever I need something that isn’t books (yes a need) or food. For instance, spring is almost here and after spring is summer and summer means giant sweaty drinks. Even though I really don’t need to protect my $9 IKEA tables from water stains, I hate the pools of water that form around my gin & tonics. I need coasters. Coasters are the one thing missing from my life.

Diet Coke with Lime & Frank

Sure, sure I probably could have gone to Target and gotten some coasters for like $4. But what kind of fun is that? Besides, I like the idea of buying stuff where the money is going to real people and not a corporation.

Strangers in the Night

So, yay coasters! I got them from INOUDID’s Attic. As soon as I spied the coasters I knew I had to have them, and it only took me like an hour to decide on Frank Sinatra and not Billy Joel or Blue Oyster Cult.

    Etsy is the best, isn’t it?

    Very cool coasters! It’s not the same thing but after seeing a picture of an embroidered version of a Decemberists album, I was thinking I might stitch up the cover of Hootenanny.
