This week's finds are a direct result of Molly's positive peer pressure. See, I'm a librarian by training (and at the risk of sounding geeky, by passion). But the three little knuckleheads I call daughters are the reason I stay home and blog instead. Now Molly has been on me for weeks now to do a finds post on all the cool, hip librarian-ish stuff out there on Etsy. So, I finally decided to take a gander and holy cow. There is some COOL stuff for the book centric. Take a look at what I found!
First, you have to have a librarian charm bracelet made of old typewriter keys.
Should be in every librarian job descrip, yes? Check out ALikelyStory's shop--tons of cool jewelry.
Hair accessories made out of book pages! Seriously? I could wear these to work. (Or just at home when I am feeling bookish.)
Check out authorish's shop on etsy.
Gotta take notes, right? Old check out slips make for a fun way to jot down my favorite blogs or my grocery list.
Crabappledesigns on etsy, folks!
You could do some serious shhhhhh-ing in the library in this one, yes? Love it.
No shame in bringing the retro to the party.

|I've always wanted one of these in my house because a) i'm short and b) they're straight out of the library. Even Crate and Barrel thinks they are cool.|
|When I had my first, Eleanor, my cousins threw me a baby shower where you were asked to bring a book for baby's library. I thought it was the sweetest idea.|
These invitations are perfect for that type of shower!
And finally, somewhere out there on CraigsList or in a dusty old warehouse there is a library card catalog with my name on it. I will hold DVD's, our Wii, all of my jewelry, whatever, something in it. In the meantime, I could always go with this repro from Target.
Are you inspired by the library or is just me?
