Hey friends! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA … finals week is encroaching, I’ve unexpectedly started my research (I was in the Everglades collecting water samples last week!) AND we’re hosting Thanksgiving at our place this year – So much to do!
Today’s finds are pretty much just things that I want. Why? Because today is my birthday!!
The following are a few items that have been on my radar for a while:
Where you can get ’em:
- Waxed Canvas Tote by ArtifactBags
- Make Your Own Log Kit by myimaginaryboyfriend
- Black Branch Porcelain Pendant by lila ruby king
- Jasper Stone Hand-Knotted Necklace by OsageOrangeStudio
- Handknit Socks by middlegray
- Nikon D3000 DSLR Camera by … wait a minute …
I know, that last one wasn’t found via Etsy – But it was an early/unexpected birthday gift for myself!! Remember how I said I was in the Everglades last week? Well, I brought my camera to take pictures (of course) and ended up dropping it overboard …
Upsetting? Sort of. I’m just sad I don’t have pictures of the field trip to show you. But getting a DSLR has been on Jim and my wish lists for months now (I wanted something better for item/blog photos and Jim has been a photo geek since high school). It’s such a big purchase for us so we have been hesitant to take the leap. Anyway, I ended up having enough money saved up from my Etsy sales to purchase a refurbished, body-only Nikon D3000 (Jim already owns a lens that will work perfectly with it)!
It is scheduled to be delivered today and I cannot wait to play with it and have Jim teach me the ins and outs of using a “real” camera! (I also can’t wait to snap some photos and share them with you!)
Other than that I really don’t have anything “special” planned – Spending all day in class/in lab/studying then coming home to whip up a home-cooked dinner with Jim and catch up on some shows – Sounds like the perfect birthday to me!
