Monday Etsy Madness

I want to take some time out each week and feature some awesome crafts for sale on Etsy.  Yep, I have an Etsy shop.  But I just want to show you some of my competition.  Because you would be amazed at the things that are out there.  So much talent!  Etsy is a virtual craft show.  Even better than an actual craft show because you don’t have to deal with crowds, whiney kids, the summer heat, long lines and the parking fees.  The only thing you miss out on by going to Etsy is maybe the slaw dogs and funnel cakes.  But some sacrifices are worth it.  Just think about all those extra calories you are saving…

Since we are stuck in the midst of a major heat wave here in Atlanta, I thought I’d go with the theme of the sun.  It seemed fitting.  So check out the links below, stop by and visit and show them some love!

Absoluteglass195– Lemon Tree
This piece is part of a garden series using found objects. They used metal frogs, a lemon tree from a wine bottle and a pressed sun face. I love the movement in this piece and the combination between bright and soft colors. This piece is hung with picture frame wire and comes with a brass cup hook to hang from. The dimensions are: 13″ x 17 1/4″   Wouldn’t this look amazing with the sun shining through it?  I have done stained glass before and I am in awe of this amazing talent – $250.00
