Things I need to buy…

Have you ever heard of Esty? If not, you should go there now. I’ll warn you, it’s an expensive time sink…but it’s fabulous.

So today I was trolling Esty and I saw this adorable pendent and I wanted to share. Then I also realized I didn’t share the link for the button so I decided to show both.

First, the pendent:

I still believe in 398.2 fairy tale necklace charm (Listing 313G)

398.2 is the fairy tale section for the Dewey Decimal System — an adorable and unusual pendant for fairy tale lovers, librarians and book geeks everywhere

So cute!

Now, the button.
