Happy Easter Happy Spring

Today I have not one but four features for your viewing pleasure. I scoured out all the Etsy shops looking for just the right mix of goodies. It was a difficult task there are so many talented artist In one spot. These four seemed to just fit. So first we have folktale This yarn Is absolutely beautiful, love the title too. It does look like a bag full of those little Easter bean's. This Is what Abby has to say, I try to buy as much wool from small local farms as possible -local sheep & wool festivals are my best friend! I like supporting small local businesses, and when I buy directly from the farmers, they get a much fairer price for their wool than if they sold it to a large company. Stop by folktale and check out all of those fabulous mix of colors all In one lovely Skein.

Second In line we have This adorable OOAK Whimsical Paper Clay Papier Mache Easter Bunny Nodder from punkindoodleboo Katie tells us a little about this little guy. This Easter Bunny sits 9" inches tall and he has so many wonderful little details! He also has the most darling expression! My favorite details are his smart looking jacket and dapper bow and, of course, his pink Easter Basket! He has jointed arms and legs and his neck is a rusted spring. This wonderfully whimsical piece will most certainly be a treasured addition to any doll collection. This Is one talented artist. Stop by and take a peek at the rest of her amazing collection. Katie also has a blog so be sure to stop by there as well. Katies link to her shop Is under favorites to the right.

Third on my fabulous Easter finds Is this Incredible painting by TerryRafferty Does this just scream
HAPPY EASTER and that adorable little yellow chick. Terry just opened her Etsy shop a week ago and has already sold one of her amazing painting's. I say she Is well on her way. This featured pick Is a 8x16" original oil painting titled
Where Is Everybody? Terry does have some other beautiful painting's listed In here shop so be sure to stop and say Hi.

Forth we have Deb from Heartspeak with this beautiful vintage Easter card. She just opened her shop In March of this year. This Is what she had to say, I try to create cards and other products, mostly from paper, that will help you communicate with the people you care about. Whether it's how you feel about them or a way to share something about yourself, sometimes it really is just as simple as a few words or an image on a card. Stop by and see Deb for that special card, she really has a great selection and tell her you saw her here, Deb's link to her shop Is under favorites to the right.

What a lovely thing to feature other artists for Easter! I really enjoyed seeing the variety and its a great way to discover new artists and shops. I especially love punkindoodleboo's work - how fun can it get!?

Your photos of your earrings are works of art in themselves - and the one of the white blooms with people gazing at it: Amazing is the right word.
