If there is one thing I love doing, it’s building an imaginary art gallery on Etsy. First off, I think the concept of Etsy is one of the saving graces of capitalism. I love that “a baller on a budget,” like myself, can still collect quality art from up-and-coming artists, while supporting the art community, sans middle man. Here are a few pieces I’ve been spying.
I have received plenty of assurance from the locals that the weather we are experiencing as of late is less than typical of what should be expected this time of year. Good thing, because the only solace I could find in moving to the Midwest was that I’d finally have the chance to experience four seasons, and although I’d have to endure a blustery winter, I’d at least have a warm body (the beau) to siphon heat from. Don’t get me wrong, he’s been more than happy to oblige, but I’d rather just skip this week’s bleary outlook and move on to conditions more conducive to bike rides, picnics, and kicking the sheets off in the middle of the night.
