My first Etsy purchases arrived last week. First the Scrabble tile pillows by Countercouture arrived. I ducked down to Spotlight to buy inserts, then stuffed and arranged them on the couch in the tv room.

Seven letter score!

(The London/Underground pillows that used to be here are now on the guest room bed – they match with the old train maps on the walls.)

A few days later this little slightly crushed box from macraMe turned up.

Inside was a lovely little card and a bag.

And in the bag…

Which Paul actually admitted to liking, saying that it’s cool in a kind of silly way. You mean cute and kitschy, I asked? Yes.
