We Want It Wednesday! - Collection 2, Pop Culture Pirates

It’s our second We Want It Wednesday! Now Younger Sis Shiny is up at bat as curator. If you’re ready to fight zombies, join pirates sailing through siren-laden waters, and text Harry Potter about your upcoming visit to the Joker’s place, all with a refined sense of Victorian style, this is the week for you my friend!

Much like the denizens of the bookshelves and DVD collections we ShinyGoLucky sisters hold dear, this is an unlikely group, but one that works. Sort of like the Breakfast Club, or the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen! As usual, Etsy is bursting at the seams with cool discoveries, and we are more than happy to share some recent favorites.

DawnWillBreak's Etsy shop is a colorful delight, stuffed with treasures of both the vibrant and dainty variety. Frankly I am giddy at the thought of picking some treats! This is a picture of her gorgeous Warm Rainbow. Set of 8 Beaded Bobbypins: Aren't they dripping with summertime goodness? My finger is itching to click "Add to Cart" so act fast if you want to get them first! ;)

She also has a shop full of art and craft supplies, especially buttons in all sorts of colors: Perfect for you crafters that make such gorgeous button jewelry and use them to embellish scrapbooking.

We Want It Wednesday! - Collection 1, Spring Cheer

Welcome to our very first We Want It Wednesday!

We see so many awesome things on Etsy all the time that the idea of sharing some with our readers made a lot of sense. We’re also treasury junkies, so we’re thrilled by the chance to showcase items without crossing our fingers to land a space on Etsy proper.

The first We Want It Wednesday lineup is a real treat. Spring has sprung and Big Sis Shiny is ready for all things cheery and cute! White daisies are her favorite, and you’ll find them aplenty here. And what could cheer you up quicker than pretty rainbow colors? Check out these beautiful items from our fellow Etsy sellers! (Top left to right, then bottom left to right)
