This little guy was born a year ago today on free Slurpee Day at 7-11 stores. No he wasn't born at a 7-11 but they have free slurpees today. Grandpa and I got to see him walking on a web cam last night. Both the baby grandkids are walking now and it is so cute to see them together.

Aren't the paintings above beautiful? This artist was my inspiration for doing my nest themed treasury. I am also very pleased to say that the painting from Kellydesigns in the previous post has sold.

I was able to build a treasury list today on etsy.com. I used the images of nests, birds and eggs for this one. The direct link to this treasury is here. There are always beautiful, shocking, funny or thought provoking treasuries to look at and enjoy.
These images make me feel safe, secure and peaceful. Nests are a place to start a family and safely get young ones ready to face the world. Right now my nest is empty of young ones but I still try to do my part to help Jim be ready to face the world.
I wish you all safe, cozy and nurturing nests.

Jim and I had a quiet Fourth of July. He had to work but got home in the afternoon earlier than usual. We grilled some hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and had them along with fruit and some salads. It was just the two of us to watch fireworks over the back fence. The picture with this post is my first try to photograph fireworks. I am sure there are things I should know to make them turn out better.

Anyway this brings me to today's bit of Etsy orange. I really don't think there is much that could be searched for on Etsy and not find some kind of art or crafted piece that would fit. Take a look at the picture of just some of the things that turned up from a search of the word goldfish and you will see baby things, jewelry, hair accessories, glasses, art and a toy.
Take a minute or two, go check out Etsy and see what you find.

With the growth of the web I knew someday there would be a place for crafters and artists. I checked out site after site never quite finding a place that felt comfortable. Then one day surfing the blogs on a lunch break as mentioned before I found Etsy. It was wonderful to look around. The site design was and still is made so the products are the stars. Everything on the site is made to show off the creations of artists and crafters. The community spirit in the forums is amazing. The range of works this site has attracted is so wide as to be unbelievable.
Please if you value handcrafted work of any and all kinds check it out. You can look at individual sellers, shop by categories, check out what has just been listed or sold and see little user created mini galleries called treasuries. Where else can you find an arts festival 24/7/365 around the world with not hundreds but thousands of vendors?
Thanks to the people who created this place. The world needed it.
Let me, and everyone else you know, hear what you think about Etsy after you check it out for yourself.
