An Etsy Twitter Team Treasury

I woke up this morning in a happy mood and put together this treasury from the Etsy Twitter Team. Take a peek and enjoy. A Beautiful New Morning

Can you guess my favorite? Of course this new mom is noticing all the cute baby items. I love this newborn hammock by BeautifulPhotoProps on Etsy.

Beautiful Artwork by Lydia Kinsey

This week I came across the art of Lydia Kinsey. I'm in love with her ATC Antoinette Series. This one is Antionette Lily. Also a part of the collection are Antionette Sunflower and Antionette Tulip. She also makes fun Disney character inspired ACEOs.

Lydia paints and draws at her home in Winter Park (Orlando), Florida. You can follow Lydia on twitter or visit her Etsy Shop FaeryTaleWings.

Butterfly Rescue

About a month ago Moira asked me if we found a butterfly with a hurt wing could we take it home and rescue it. Well look what we found on our walk tonight. A grounded butterfly with a hurt wing. Moira carefully carried this lovely little creature all the way home. A few times the wind caught its wings and it was able to cruise just a bit through the air, but it just couldn't make it up off the ground again. So this beauty is living on my front porch in my pot of Houttuynias.

New Camera! New Listings!

Hurray!! I had a little hang up back in May with my old camera failing, followed by the new camera (used but new to me) having a defect and needing to trade it in. It has taken me until now to get back up to speed with listing. My new camera is here and I'm quite happy with it. It's a HP photsmart M537. I've found that HP cameras are a good choice for when you need to take nice close up photos of small items such as jewelry. Here are the two newest listings for my etsy store. There will be more to come soon.
