I'm a just little excited. I recently arrived home from spending a lovely lunch with old friends, jumped online to check my email, and found a whole lot of new people on Etsy had included me in their circle (ie, they can now follow my favourites list - of objects, shops and treasuries/galleries). It was really quite out of character to get so many at once, so I logged into Etsy, and lo & behold, my most recent treasury (where you create a 'gallery' of things you like from other shops) had suddenly received over 400 views. Reading down the comments, it seems the above collection of quirky goodness (meant to be a bit of fun, but I would seriously be elated to receive any of these as a gift - {hint!}) made it to the front page of Etsy. I'm really rather superbly chuffed - especially since I haven't even got around to getting my own shop up and running yet!

So pleased all the wonderful artists and vintage shops in this profile were able to receive the glory they deserve. Noice. Very very very noice indeedy! (The last image of the plate has been added in, because the plate I actually chose from this shop has disappeared from the listing - it's still a great one though). I do receive a lot of pleasure trawling through Etsy to curate a treasury - although sometimes it can take a rediculously long time! You can head here to view more of my favourites unearthed in this sensational handmade/vintage universe.

Over 400 views!? That's fantastic and it really is a very interesting collection. I love the work by Jevgeniamasks. Did you get a chance to watch the video featuring her story? Now I found some more interesting shops :)

What a great treasury! No wonder it made front page, Helen. Congratulations on the mega-views, and yes, such a shame you haven't opened a shop yet. Kx

Erin: Over 500 now... crazy!! And no, I haven;t had time to check out the Jevgeniamasks video - but I certainly will.
Kylie: I know... the whole shop thing is still so much on my radar - I just need more headspace! (and some equipment)
Annamaria: Thanks so much. Hope you are exceptionally well. Loving your new paintings.
Kitty: That's super sensational news!! So pleased you got a few sales out of it and more admirers. That makes me feel pretty damn good!
