A Game of Pounce Featuring New Etsy Sellers!

Before I get started I just wanted to thank all of you who helped me with my quilt quandry, and for your kind comments about my lily-of-the-valley watercolors. I so appreciate the kind words!

I like to poke around on the 'pounce' feature on Etsy. Today here are a few new Etsyians I came across and loved their work! Since I've been in the wrong place at the wrong time on snagging a treasury lately I decided to do a blog feature on some of them. So, here goes!

These lovely little guys are from Il Grande Albero. This bunny really spoke to me. I hope he finds someone to play some ball with him! He looks like such a friendly fellow. I'm assuming he's a he, at least he looks like a he to me. If he was my bunny I think I'd name him Charles or Winston, as he has an aire of distinction about him. I have to admit, I'm concerned about our little friend because later we find Sir Charles/Winston in this predicament. What did he do? Did his ball blow out to sea and he went in after it? Did he leave his boat at home and had to sail back home and this was the best method? Little bunny, I want to know what happened!

But seriously, artist Sara Cancian has some cute stuff that deserves some attention, so please check out her shop when you have a moment! Il Grande Albero


I'm not usually a big purse/bag kind of girl, but this "Sweet Summer Dreams" clutch from EightSeasons grabbed my eye. They have a few of this type of bag, but in different colors and designs. I like what the artist has on her shop description....

"If you like feminine touch, luxury,
exuberance and bold style, you are in the right place!"
.
Can't we all use a little more exuberance? Check out their shop!

Our next shop feature falls in an area I've rarely roamed....miniatures! I am totally fascinated by artists who work in small mediums. For some reason even the most mundane article of everyday life becomes quirky and darling when it is teensy. Fittingly enough since it is a miniature, the photo is small. This actually reminds me of a wonderful vacation I took to Spain years ago. The Spanish certainly do love their ham and all things porcine. So, if you are setting up your very own teeny-tiny Casa del Jamón you must visit this great Etsy shop, Annie's Miniatures. Oh, and Annie has lots of cool other things, like itsy-bitsy bowls of fruit salad, for the good Irish customers, miniscule black pudding rings, and even petite cucumber sandwiches.


I'll end my post sort of where I started, with bunnies. No, I really don't have a thing for rabbits. OK, maybe tonight I do! But I just liked the look of this print. Maybe it's because she has redhair (like me), maybe I envy her cute short cut. But I think it's because she looks like a fun chick.....after all, she's wearing bunny ears. She and some of her friends reside at a lovely little shop called The Art of Emma. Please stop by and say hello to her and her pals. Maybe they'll invite you to their party.

Please check out all these new shops if you have some time! These favorites are also posted (among others) at the very bottom of my blog page. Go take a looksee!

Nighty-night!

I love your idea of featuring new Etsy sellers! It's fun to see what's new.

Now if only I could find someone who could turn my Tuggy the Sandboat into a motorized car...
