Favorite ETSY Finds, Part 1

I so enjoy Etsy. You never know what you might find inside this Cyber Den of Uniquity. Like these 2 barstools I purchased last year and re-upholstered in this gorgeous slate grey leather. Wait a minute? (Shameless Bragging Alert) Are those

This seems like a happy photo, but in reality these guys are bathed in the eerie light the Malibu area fires are casting. So very sad for all the humans, pets & wild animals affected. Devastating.

Experienced the delight of seeing her emerge from her cocoon - see attached video. Maybe I wasn’t supposed to interfere (sorry, Nature), but when I saw her on her back with nothing to help upright her (which was technically my fault since I had unwittingly removed said cocoon from our pool float, where it was attached in an upright position.
