Anna from Much Love is doing a lovely project: "Show Me Your Heart!" where participantstake a picture (that features a heart) and then write about something you love.
She is posting up all the participants on Monday so be sure to check her blog then!
That was a bit difficult for me entirely because I have far, far too many things I love! Blogs! Chocolate! Tea! Disney! Cupcakes! Spice bread! Raindrops on roses! Whiskers on kittens!
You get the idea.
So I decided to write about one thing I discovered last year (ish - I really discovered it a couple years earlier but not to this extent) - Etsy. I love that there are so many people that are doing their dream, even if only part-time, and sharing it with the world. I love that I can find a stationery set, a kitty toy, an art print, a vintage robot and a hand-made scarf all on the same site. I love how pretty it is (I'm very fussy about only shopping in pretty places). I love the community.
And I love how when I get a package from Amazon, it has the packing slip included but when I get a package from Etsy, it has a little hand-written note or my item gift-boxed or even an extra treat.
I love that.
And I know I have Etsy shop owners and Etsy shop lovers who read my blog so:
- if you're a shop owner, please leave your shop's link and a little description of what you sell in a comment!
- if you're an Etsy shop lover, please leave the link of one of your favorite shops.
- if you're neither, browse through the links and find something you love!
P.S. Feel free to follow me! I promise only ever to lead you to bright, sunny places!
