Are you a Displaced Victorian?

...or would you like to be?

 I just volunteered to be one of the team leaders on the Home For Displaced Victorians Etsy Team. Per the team description:

This team is for etsy members who love all things Victorian. From clothing to literature, this team is really for everyone who appreciates the Victorian Era. Displaced Victorians welcomes sellers and buyers!! So if you feel like you're living in the wrong century...hop on board!! The train to 1890 is boarding now!!

So...Poe fans?...Dickensian carolers?...Steamy sky captains? I know I count your ranks among my readers. Come on along!

New discount art supply site

I just received an e-mail this morning about a new discount art/craft supply site in the vein of Groupon: Blitsy . They're just getting started, but it might be worth signing up for updates.
