I am a bit curious about the website called Etsy. There’s some really cute stuff (I say that cautiously because I’m not a fru-fru kind of girl), but I am most interested in the items representing my homestate, Kentucky. I might have to break out the credit card for a couple of these. Can a girl ever have too much Bluegrass-ware? I think not.
This necklace could serve dual-purposes because the “502” area code is specific to the Louisville and Central Kentucky areas now, but back in the good-ol days it covered the entire state. I remember when “270” was introduced and how frustrating it was to dial a number on my grandmother’s rotary telephone. Kids these days don’t even know what a rotary telephone is…..oh dear, I said “kids these days” again ~ that’s twice in two days!!!!! What’s wrong with me???
I’m really curious about the “Kentucky Derby Pendant” and the year this picture was taken because my grandfather was a huge supporter and regular patron at Churchill Downs. I can imagine him at the track with his bourbon and stat sheets. There’s hardly anything more beautiful than those Twin Spires, I miss my Kentucky.
Amen, I love this shirt ~ it’s so true! Kentucky girls are one-of-a-kind.
I’d probably buy this cutting board, but there’s no way I’d ever use it. Definitely a “display only” item for me.
This horseshoe is probably my favorite houseware item I’ve seen yet. Of course, my husband would whip me (hey, sounds like fun!) if he knew I was even considering purchasing a horseshoe considering we have about a hundred in the barn right now. (One of the perks of owning your own horses!!!!) But, husband, this is sooooooo cute!!!!!!!! The pendant reads, “bless this house with much love and luck.” How sweet. I think this would be a nice touch hanging above a door or window. I don’t have any horseshoes in the house or jewelry items, but my “borrowed” item for our wedding was a horseshoe pendant necklace. I would like a similar necklace as an anniversary present ~ HINT TO KEVIN (who never reads this blog).
OK, so maybe I ought to give this Etsy thing a try.
(screaming) HUSBANDDDDD, CAN I BORROW YOUR CREDIT CARD??????????? (oh wait, I have my own. Score!)
