New Browsing Pretties

The new laptop has meant that I am spending more time that absolutely necessary browsing the internet – I can’t help it, it’s just so quick! It’s been a while since I shared some of the Literacy pretties I have found on my time wasting journeys through the magic which is the world wide web, so while I am not making the most of my evening – currently watching the first Eurovision semi final – I thought I would share.

Literary Map from the Literary Gift Company. £9.95. Beautiful. And a challenge laid down me thinks - how many of these names could you honestly say you've read?!

A stunning charcoal by Jessicalibor, "Over the Rooftops" based on the poem 'There Will Be Rest' by Sarah Teasdale. $30 USD on Etsy.

Gorgeous Steampunk Owl necklace - absolutely beautiful. $24 USD by birdzNbees on Etsy.

Steampunk inspired Mary Jane shoes, $52.95 USD from Clockwork Couture. Genius!

And finally something for the boys, "The '1872' Empire-Remington Double-Action Catalytic Gun Cane". A little more steampunk from Clockwork Couture. $299.95 incase you were wondering!
