Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Etsy Angst Revisited

Here's an excerpt from one of last year's blog posts:

"I've concluded my stuff is just not appealing to the savvy, upmarket buyers. Change is mandated if I want to command the truly Big Bucks. I've got to start offering wedding veils made of musty burlap. Empty my kitchen junk drawer onto a glue-covered automobile floor mat and call it fine art. Swirl Pepto-Bismol around in an old mayonnaise jar and market it as "cottage chic" decor. Hack a hole through a worn, sagging sofa cushion, ring it around someone's neck like a doughnut and proclaim it an "infinity scarf". You get the idea."

The Extra Large Cozy in Walnut Shell


These and other treasures can be yours. Just thank Etsy. And, yes, this post was inspired when I saw the large doughnut ringing the model's neck like some kind of whiplash brace on Etsy's front page last night.

    I almost like that trash collage almost...
