Arcadian, Treasury

Etsy Treasuries are a new thing for me, as is the handmade, vintage, and supplies website Etsy.com. A “treasury” is a gallery of 16 items on Etsy. I love to curate these, due to my impulse to create collections of carefully selected things that communicate a bit of my world. I also enjoy spreading the love to other artists and crafters. And this could possibly help to make our world a little more peaceful and beautiful; supporting the handmade community, I believe, is a step toward achieving these things.

I made this Etsy treasury to be in the mood of an Arcadian type of lifestyle, which goes right along with my post “Are you and an Arcadian or a Utopian?”

Here’s the link to the treasury.

Fae is on my hip, rocking side to side, patting me and saying “tss, tss,” which means “nurse.”

  1. I love how you create these treasuries! It is almost like an elegant form of Pinterest. Such a great concept. I may do some promoting myself, and link back to you. It is so cute that Fae is verbalizing her desire to nurse. Jehryn makes the ASL sign for milk, but I am looking forward to hearing his indication. 🙂

    • Thanks. I read often about choosing a word other than “nurse” for nursing to avoid embarassment in public. But I just couldn’t bring myself to make up a nickname and instead decided to just be honest–with Fae and with the world. So, if at 3 years old she demands to nurse in public (which is fine with me), It’ll just show the world that toddlers like to nurse.

Any thoughts? I love hearing from you.
