Virgos are givers, naturally, so I want to make sure and share with everyone the Internet's greatest gift: Etsy. To many of you reading this, or perhaps all of you, Etsy is not a new thing. It is my homepage, my #1 source of inspiration, and my go-to place for gift shopping. My Etsy profile can vouch that I am an avid buyer, but I won't regurgitate all of my past purchases--just a couple. In the past month, I bought two really awesome items, packed with personality, one for Mom for Mothers' Day, and one for the hubs.
The latter was a little somethin' I picked up just for fun for the hubs, whose name is (spoiler alert!) Gabe. It's a vintage ash tray--neither of us smokes--that reads: "GABES - THE STEAK HOUSE OF THE SOUTH - OWENSBORO, KENTUCKY - FAMOUS FOR FOOD SINCE '22." I just love that last line because it's kind of odd. I mean, usually restaurants claim to be famous for a specific type of food --burgers, shakes, tacos, biscuits--but Gabes is famous for "food." I found it at eclecticamiami --such a fun shop!--whose owner requests and shares photos of the items in their new homes. Great idea.
The first photo shows its current location, which could change instantaneously because I'm a habitual re-decorator. Really, I get sick of things so easily, it's actually my reasoning for never getting a tattoo.
The hubs knows he's lucky because he's the one thing I've never gotten sick of. :)
