I've been meaning to go restock at metalliferous in midtown for over a week now, and keep getting waylaid. It's only open until 6 pm which is a leeeetle inconvenient for me (and i imagine i'm not the only one) and of course i could order online, but i want to go into the store and dive in and swim around amongst all of the great stuff. imagine me as scrooge mcduck, only it's silver instead of gold. and none of it belongs to me. oh, and no spats. they make my ankles look fat.

anyway, i'm excited. I feel very stuck without the items i'm looking for, plus i just scored a great set of alphabet metal-stamps, and i am overjoyed about personalizing things! i just... don't have anything to stamp yet. *sad face*

also, I admit I didn't know anything about the movie Twilight except for there's vampires and stars that cute boy who dies in harry potter (oops, spoiler alert? if you think this is a spoiler, you are either way behind, or you think harry potter is of the devil which is ok since you probably won't see the movie anyway). now, however, i want to see the movie just for the lion/lamb quote. sweeet. now, where's some Coraline-inspired rag dolls? Bring it, etsians.

"Twilight" Zone

I recently posted in the Etsy forums a call for recent and up-and-coming trends, since i'm often a few steps behind.

The answer? Well, see all of the replies at the link above, but "TWILIGHT!!" was one of the most popular noted trends. I love Cedric Diggory as much as the next girl, but I hand never thought of movie-inspired vampire chic accessories and couture! Here are some Twilight Highlights.
