Oh No No No

Maybe I'm naive, but because I am so in love with Etsy, I expect to see stars and rainbows and sunshine every time I discover a new product or user. Well, um, no. Lobster brought these questionable items to my attention earlier. I had been struggling with what to post about today, but immediately I needed to alert you all to this product. Can you imagine a bowl full of these in a guest bathroom? No thanks! Could you consider them kitschy? More like creepy - dismembered baby hands?. My favorite is the seller note:
These are are *completely hand made*, so each set is slightly different with different hand-shapes & skin-ish colors.

Again, trying to control the gag reflex.

These are kind of scary! Can you imagine taking a shower and seeing little hands reaching for you from the soap dish! Eeeeck!!!

I love Etsy's stuff too, but these just are so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So disturbing!

Love your blog though!

what's the big deal? I think they're cute--they're not actually hands, just representations of hands. Etsy is great, btw, and they have lots of unique sellers who make amazing stuff! I sent my brother soap in the shape of a fried egg! He loved it.
