    I've just been looking at all the lovely things in your Etsy store. How are you getting on with Etsy? I've got a website but keep wondering if Etsy would be a better alternative or maybe something I should consider as well as my own site. Hope you don't mind me asking.

    1. Thanks Barbara! I really enjoy my Etsy shop! I have had some really great customers and I love sharing my finds with them. It's great when they send me messages about how they love an item because they had it has a child or that they are giving something as a gift. The nice thing about Etsy is there is no charge to set up a shop, you only pay when you list or sell items. ~~Diane

  8. Diane - what a lovely poem for spring and Lois Maloy's illustrations are fabulous. What art!! I am going to do some research on her - thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see more. Have a lovely week-end.
