Etsy and Pinterest are my before bed addiction routine. I lay there, on my phone, scrolling and pinning and scrolling and favoriting (is that a word?). My eyes start drooping. I will surely NOT get up at 5:31 am when my alarm goes off. (Does anyone else do this? I set my alarm for 5:31, because my snooze is 9 minutes long, and I know I won't get up on the first buzz. So I snooze, and then I can get up at the nice, even number of 5:40 am. Unless, I snooze again, and world? ...totally rocked.)

I digress.

Here's what currently has my attention on etsy:

This mug from PrintableWisdom.  I love everything about it! Even the model's shirt!

 Vintage owl coasters from BettyandDot. Look at their cranky little faces!

This pillow by TableclothShop - lest we forget this beautiful world God created for us!

Gah!! I even love the earthworm! Print by thewheatfield.

And these butterflies by thewheatfield too! I need a BIG ol print of this one!

If only I could hide all the packages before my hubs saw them, and if only he weren't quite so observant! ;)

And then there is Pinterest...

This safety pin bracelet reminds me of the 80s. Anyone? I'm pretty sure I had safety pins with beads on my jean jacket. Along with my 'Gag me with a Spoon' button. 

Sadly, this iphone repair kit caught my attention because I am currently with broken screen. It happened 2 months ago. $100 to replace a screen? EEP! No. I know, I know...I should have purchased the insurance. (eyeroll). I think I'll just upgrade to the Big iphone 6! Makes total sense, right?

Before I share these next 2 items, I have to tell you, I am not a DIYer. My husband is not a DIYer. BUT, I have big plans for us to become DIYers. My husband, not so much. This is a work in progress.  Once I convince him, this is what I'd like to do with my round kitchen table. Just not sure what color yet.

And I really think we could do this light fixure too. We already have a fixture like the bottom will be free as soon as we DIY the hall bathroom! But wait, round table and long rectangle light fixture. Is that a decorating faux paux? What do you think?

And finally, can I just encourage you to type 'bunny butt' in the search field of Pinterest? Please do this. Serious cute stuff with bunny butts...even some actually real. bunny. butts! Like this:

and this:

I do not, however, suggest googling the same phrase.

Hah!!...I can relate...I have many plans but no realistic goals...and I still wear a cute heart designed 'safety pin' pin that we made as a Girl Scout project♪ Wish Pinterest was around when I was a leader!

I'm liking your lovelies, Amy. The butterflies are my favorites.

My alarm, I try to keep it with the hour number a six (6). Then I can get up anytime I set, from 6:00 through 6:59.

Church time is 6:40.

GMA is 6:55 (five minutes to go to the bathroom, catch the local weather and traffic, and get settle back in bed with the electric blanket turn down some.
Then I sleep until after the 8:00 news on GMA. Mrs. Jim may have brought me coffee by then.

I love that pillow! And I too want to do something with my kitchen table. Great post!

Great share filled with wonderful photos! My grandson just broke the screen on his i phone too! I think he has insurance but why he has not replaced it, I just don't know! Bunnies are always cute. with Easter coming up soon they are quite popular. We have a wild one that may be living under the front porch or our backyard shed. We see it often especially when it snows! Always fun to stop by and visit. Have a great week.

What made you think to search "Bunny Butt"??? :D hahahaha!

You could TOTALLY do that to your table! And the light fixture - We did something similar-ish with a light fixture just like that. And with a round table? Who cares. I say, go for it!

P.S. I wore those beaded safety pins on the laces of my Keds!
