Happy New Year! Welcome 2009!!

Yes, indeed, welcome to 2009!  Sure glad 2008 is over.  (Aren't we all?!)  I curated a treasury on Etsy recently that was titled "What is your New Year's Wish?", love, luck, laughter, travel, peace, joy, serenity? In this treasury, I featured items from the Etsy Treasury Team that I am a proud member of. Here are a few lovely sentiments that we can give our thoughts to in this new year and some gorgeous handmade items from the ETTEAM.  

Peace  -  This sweet little Handmade Stained Glass White Dove of Peace is by GlassnWood's on Etsy.  Be sure you stop by their store, as they have some of the most beautiful stained glass works of art!

Love (in my treasury)  is represented by this adorable little necklace from Chosen Vintage's Etsy store.  Two little sweethearts kissing and a vintage red heart.  Yes, we all need more kisses and more love!!  Their Etsy store features some wonderful vintage styles jewelry.  Be sure you pay them a visit!

Another major favorite Etsy artist of mine is Jacqueline Newbold, whose lovely watercolor print, Vineyard View of Gigondas, France,  (left), I chose to represent Serenity.  I'm sure you can see why.  Jacqueline's shop on Etsy is Mozo.  I hope you'll take a look at her other lovely prints and paintings.  

Peace, love and serenity.  These are a few things that I am striving to embody in my life in 2009.  Hopefully these are ideas that will inspire you in your lives too.  May 2009 bring you everything that you hope and dream for. 

Remember that Etsy is your place to find unique, handmade goods that let you feel good about where you're spending your money.  Whether you are looking for a great gift or you're just in the mood to spoil yourself, you can be sure that you are supporting an independent artist or crafter.    And - for some fabulous artists, jewelry makers, knit and fiber artists on Etsy - be sure to do a search for "ETTEAM" when you visit the site.  That is the Etsy Treasury Team.  A wonderful team of very talented  and crafty people!!   

Happy New Year!!!

I also love that song Mercy by Duffy!
I may need to find it and add it to my blog so I can hear it all the time, hehe.
