Wish List

  • I use mini hand towels as wash cloths and ARTBOX just added loads of super cute ones.
  • This Teddy plushy by FUJIBEE has been sitting in my Etsy cart for weeks now but I can’t quite justify the shipping.
  • itsgeoffrey has a lot of cute things – the Teaveelution enamel pins are so fancy.
  • I actually have so many glasses that they’re stacked inside each other but I still want these Shippo Diner glasses.
