it's damn fine! new etsy favorite, the great northern

I admit to going through phases where I do obsessive searches through Etsy listings for particular things. Anyone who's seen my embarrassing Wish List posts already knows of my (quite on-Etsy-trend) thing for woodgrain items and squirrels. And candy. I just took a short break from some serious stalking of Etsy's many soapmakers and turned my attention to...cross stitch!

And there I found
The Great Northern, a shop that magically combines my latest obsession with an old one: Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks aired when I was in college, and I well remember the nights I gathered with my friends and our 40 ouncers to watch. I recently re-watched the series and loved it even more the second time around.

The Great Northern sells not only cute cross stitch samplers, but also a Log Lady pin and earrings, Bookhouse Boys earrings, and cute fingerless mittens. Look at these There's a Fish in the Percolator Mittens!

I can tell you that the cross stitch samplers are just as fabulous in person, but I can't say much more as the one I got is a gift "for Andy" (quotation marks because Andy never watched Twin Peaks, so it's really kind of a gift For Me, or as I like to think of it, For Us).

I don't see that The Great Northern does custom items, but I wonder if I asked nicely if they would make me a "That gum you like is going to come back in style" cross stitch.



  1. haha! i'm excited about this post. i added the entire series of twin peaks to netflix queue last week. i was in middle school when it first aired so my attention span was a lot shorter so i never really got into it and with all this newfound time on my hands i've decided to find out who killed laura palmer.... can't wait!

  2. wow. I think I just fell in love as well. thank you for this tip... I am a Twin Peaks fanatic as well! Off to drool over this shop...

  3. I love the "gift for us" idea. :) I'm the same way. heehe.

  4. the island of misfits toys- how awesome is that!
