Imaginary Baronial Etsy Spree

Imaginary Baronial Etsy spree....


THE holy grail of 30s items: an authentic coat.  In my size.  From a Canadian seller, so there would be no issue with the fur collar causing it to be stuck for months in customs.  Must swoon now and must turn and walk slowly away from the computer before a purchase occurs ;).



Art Deco watch: the style of the numbering on the face is enough to bring tears to my eyes

The ultimate "Rolls Royce" of 30s stoves (the Imaginary Baroness enjoys cooking as a hobby, and wants the domestics to find meal preparations less burdensome..)

The cosiest Aran knitted chair cover ever, which speaks both to the knitwear addict and book worm in me.  I can see myself tearing through my Christie novels in this baby already.  SIGHS!



One cannot enjoy the above chair without ample supply of tea, consumed in a civilized set like this..

Okay, back to my non-baronial reality.  MUST stop procrastinating by dream shopping on Etsy. Dangerousness!!!

Nice (but somewhat painful) to dream, eh, gals? hehe

lene: sorry, doll, I STILL can't seem to be able to post on your blog (must investigate further). In the mean-time, congrats on the Buffalo Exchange gig! I can't believe Jerry Lee Lewis is going to be at VLV (I started crushing on him back when I was 12;)).

That coat is just dreamy! I love the HUUUUGE collar.
I really love the texture of the chair. But knowing me, it wouldn't be long before covered in tea, chocolate remnants, and cat fur ;) lol.

That watch is exceedingly similar to one sold at a shop called Past Times which specialises in reproducing vintage jewellery and watches.
