"I know we all crave a simpler, quieter way of life," her Etsy About page reads in part:
a more accepting attitude towards existence, and I know we all crave beauty; our definition of beauty needs only to be pried a little wider. The stains in our favorite teacups – the wrinkles around our eyes – the uneven stitches in a hand-knit quilt, these are full of the energy of age, the power of being loved over and over again.
Speaking of being loved over and over again: cat pile!!
Or maybe a dogpile?webpage and Etsy shop. You'll see love shared: some adult-themed (and sweet), love for The Little Prince, for coffee, for visions, for kites, for creatures. Three generations of my family visited her booth; every generation bought something, from my mom to my young teen niece (who chose this). I'd tell you what I chose but it's a present for somebody. Perhaps you too will find one.
