A quick look behind the curtain of curating Friday Finds:
Step 1: Something pops into my head.
Step 2: I type something very literal into the Etsy search bar.
Step 3: I scan for aesthetically pleasing photos.
Step 4: I get frustrated and change directions.
Step 5: I finally get 4 items I like with a spectrum of uses (art, houseware, jewelry etc.)
This week, step one was, "I feel lazy." Then I typed, "lazy weekend" into the search bar. I immediately found this lazy weekend photograph of a shocking blue home in Venice. Bingo. Then the results for lazy weekend yielded nothing else. Sigh. Lazy Sunday. No. Lazy Saturday. No. Grrr. Now I'm feeling too lazy to change directions. I want to use the blue house photograph goshdarnit. Then it dawns on me. And I search, "Blue Venetian" and "Cobalt Venice" and variations. Ta da!
TGIF! Hope you have a relaxing (maybe even lazy) weekend!
