Part of the way Etsy functions is by liking and being liked - a mental mindset in my general life too! Rather than just making a cyber wish list, I have found that you can make 'treasuries'. Essentially they are sixteen items grouped together on a theme.
Having added a hanging thistle sculpture to my shop, I thought I would do my first on thistles. (And given that I live in Scotland, etc etc ). My next one was doves, again with the rational of having my dove cards and notebooks in my Etsy Shop.
I could keep going on, tapping into the various items that I have listed, but then I went a bit off-beat, and maybe my choices need a bit of explanation. SoI will use this blog to try and give a bit a rationale where it is needed.
My third treasury is entitled "Iggy Pop Does Fashion on Radio 6" and was based on his playlist on Sunday 5th October 2014.
I won't repeat the whole playlist, but join up the Etsy listings with the relevant song and artist:
