Etsy--Uh Oh!

I'm addicted to Etsy. I'll come right out and admit it up front. There are things on Etsy that I never even dreamed I needed before I saw a picture of them just waiting for me to buy them. Once I know they exist, I hear them calling out to me, "You will never see anything like this again. You'll regret not buying this." And they are so right.

Then there are the items that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole but I can't help but sit and stare at them for a while in horrified fascination. I can't help but ask myself if it is really possible that anyone would actually purchase THAT?

Here are just a few items I found last time I was online that are just too cool (or too bizarre) for mere words:

This item is oh so beautiful. Not that I would have any place to actually wear it if I did own it. *Sigh*


I can't imagine myself actually wearing this in public but it's still really neat all the same.


And these as well.


What practical purpose would these life-size felted animals ever serve anyone? None that I can see. So why do I want one so bad?


So adorable and teeny tiny. Must RESIST!


Okay, this one actually disturbs me a little bit. So why do I feel impelled to keep going back again and again to look at it? It's just too weird for words.


I don't even know what these are, but they are so darn cute!


Someone took a lot of time to make this. Someone will probably spend their hard earned money to buy it--but it won't be ME! Way weird.


If you discover any great finds on your next visit to Etsy--please share them in comments.

Sheila, you should check out www.regretsy.com, where DIY meets WTF. :) It's got a lot of those crazy "people are really trying to sell this?" things.

Loved the pancake ring. Wouldn't ever wear it, but what a cool design.
