Change of Address!

After inconsistent posting and uncertainty of where I wanted this blog to go, I've decided to make a change and start a new blog! One with a name that can grow with me. If you'd like to keep following posts about handmade, crafting, vintage, and the occasional tutorial, please add Tiny Nest to your reader!

Thanks guys!

Etsy Treasure Chest: Hitting the Books

A new semester (and my final one as an undergrad!) has begun, and I have recently shelled out a pretty penny on required reading materials for my classes. To lessen the blow a bit, I wandered around Etsy looking for some book-related items that are definitely worth buying!

I love how this print feels like an anatomical drawing and has such ornate details. So elegant!

 Similar in style to the first one, but with a more humorous twist. I'm a sucker for rodents and cute things, so this one totally has my heart.

I can never have enough bookmarks, and this one would be a lovely way to mark my place. Cabochons come in such beautiful, delicate colors and I'd love to have this one adorning my pages.

This circle garland features sections of a vintage dictionary and would be a great subtle accent draped across a doorway or bookshelf.

My mom used to make rolled paper beads all the time, so I'm partial to both the process and the product. These are made of sheet music and have a nice layer of lacquer to give them durability.

This is such a clever idea! There's also a book base with an elephant on it that I LOVE, but I couldn't resist that adorable little toggle switch.

I'm a huge craft supply nerd, and this magnetic bookmark totally calls my name. This would also be a really fun, easy DIY!

Now I'm ready to curl up with a good book and some hot tea to get through this snowy mid-Atlantic weather!
I'll be working on re-designing the blog in the next few days and hopefully including some regularly-scheduled features to keep me on task. Enjoy the weekend everyone!
