It's been a while since I took a minute to "Pounce" around on Etsy. I just love hitting that button and not knowing what I'll find! There are so many cool artists out there! Here's a few awesome finds...

I love this silk flower pendant. It is amazing and beautiful. It must take great talent to create these Japanese flowers. You can find a lot of things like this at I Gotta Have That's shop.

This ring is very cool and very much my style. I love ornate butterfly designs. There are tons of other ornate designs at chinookhug's shop. I liked everything I saw.

I really love the purses at Little Olive Branch's shop! All of them are really cute. The wallets are great too!

Check out these shops and do some "pouncing" of your own!

Art is not a thing, it is a way...

I want to take a moment to give these Etsy sellers a great big hug.


Because our world is a better place when we have artists like these.

So, enjoy looking at all the wonderful art in these shops and everywhere else. Remember how important it is to have it in your life. Teach your children about art and raise them to hold it in their hearts. Because, as Pablo Picasso said, "
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."

My husband would absolutely love t...
