Etsy Treasury

Exciting news crossed my path today as I thumbed through a mountain of mostly junk email. A diamond amongst the junk, was a delightful note from the shop owner and artist, Abby, of BirdOnWireStudio. This studio is located on artist and crafter's website and shop venue, Etsy.com. It turns out that Abby is curating a Treasury (much like a collection) entitled Dizzy on the Etsy site, and she was writing to inform me that she had selected one of my items (see above) for inclusion in the collection.

I didn't know much about these Treasuries, so I found a bit more from the Etsy site: "Treasury East" is an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery. The collections have no limits and no expiration. Beautiful, diverse collections may be featured on Etsy's home page. A Treasury allows an artist to collect several favorites among the items for sale on Etsy, and to create a cohesive group of similar items. The similarities could be in design, function, form or otherwise, and offers an additional opportunity for the lucky artist(s) featured in the Treasury for some additional exposure on the site. Although Dizzy is one of dozens of current Treasuries, I am nevertheless delighted to be included in this online collection.
