♪Ah, sweet Figstory of life, at last i've found you!

yeah, ok, so i'm a little off. but hey, titles are supposed to grab you, aren't they?

anyway, hullo. *waves*
this is yobo, and i'm going to be guesting here on wednesdays with my almosteries**.
i'll be featuring crafters and artists from etsy.com, treasury-style (with links of course).
generally there will be some kind of theme, but not always.
sometimes it's just that there's too much coolness abounding not to make an almostery.

speaking of themes, if you haven't guessed from the post title, i chose to do an homage à figue for my first guest-ery. in my (possibly psychotic) state of "omg what should i do for my first guest-ery?" wonderment, i thought, well bloody he#, it's called Sweet Figments, isn't it? show off some figs! and so the almostery was born.

incidentally, do you know how many pages of things you get if you search on etsy with a term as innocuous as "fig"? 29 pages, if you do "All items: tags, titles''.
i didn't want to exclude vintage or, well, anything, really. you never know if you'll find the coolest vintage fig-leaf-adorned statue of michaelangelo's david (for the record, i didn't find one of those, but you can bet that i sure was lookin' for one. ;p)....... yeah, uhm.....^^;
(if you're wondering when i'm going to stop talking and get to the almostery, that time is now.)

from top left to bottom right:
bullfinch barbury, Jet James, love n' fresh, bonghi natura (alt)
Drip Stick, sweet anthem, valcox, photogencia (alt)
leaves of glass, photos 4 pandas, alicia lynn, photoish (alt)
wiggle perfume, Brownies Photos, ophelias apothecary, gigi gibson (alt)

so are you all figged out yet?
have you been figged to death?
are you craving some figgy-pudding?
have you found yourself singing 'oh sweet FIG-story of life, at last i've fouuuuund yooooooooooou'? are you now?
was it really a fig-for-all?
can i possibly make any more fig jokes?


(well, probably on that last one, but i'll spare you all my figged-in-the-head humour....[yeah, couldn't resist that one. sorry])

**what's an almostery, you ask?
well, you know the treasuries on etsy.com right? how they always seem to pop when you aren't looking? gets on your nerves, doesn't it? especially when you have a good idea, right? well, almosteries are my answer. more infos here: [link]

ok, i think i've shamelessly murdered enough of you with my terrible attempts at puns. see you next week!
