House Hunting and Etsy Avoidance Issues

Sean and I are about to begin our house-hunt in earnest.
We're spending the afternoon with our agent, touring some of the houses on our ever-changing list.
Properties are selling fast, it seems, but many more are being listed.
We're anxious, hopeful and kinda freaked out!

I took advantage of this unexpected day away from the bookshop to introduce a new batch of pretty things to my Etsy shop, Hobgoblins!

I'll readily admit that I have been ignoring my poor Etsy shop these weeks following the Valentine's Day rush. Virtual must-do's have piled up in my absence. What was meant to take an hour or so somehow turned into three hours of shooting, writing listings and responding to messages.

I plan to add more neat items, like vintage ladies magazines like Mademoiselle, Glamour and Charm (from the 1950s and 1960s), as well as cute black and white photos of schoolgirls, later this week.

Finally, a use for my pink tablecloth.
These magazines are a bit musty-smelling, but their advertisements (which greatly outnumber the articles) are wonderful! Here are a few teaser shots to whet your palate:
