Cool things of the day

4 Apr

Jac & Elsie was featured in this gorgeous mustard treasury today, and there’s a ring on it I can’t stop staring at. It is by far the most beautiful Scrabble tile jewelry I’ve ever seen. Look at it go!

Also awesome: This morning, I had a convo on Etsy from someone in France. The convo was entirely en français, and I thought, “Well, crap, what do I do now?”

I entered its entirety into Google, and look at that: It automatically translated for me.

So I responded — en Anglais — and hoped she could tell what I was saying. She thanked me for my response and had another question — which, again, I was able to translate.

She ended up making the purchase after I was able to answer all her questions, and it left me feeling kind of exhilerated. I’ve said it before: One of the uber cool things about Jac & Elsie is knowing my treats are all over the world, but to see how easy it is to correspond with a customer in an entirely different language?

The interwebs will never cease to amaze me.

    Wow, that is cool. Well they both are cool. That ring is pure awesome. The conversation? What did we do before Google, anyway?

I'd love to hear what you think!
