Joyful Works

Etsy has a wonderful feature called "The Treasury" - any registered Etsyian can capture a treasury and fill it with available works from Etsy Sellers.

Here is my latest capture -- needed some joy and smiles on this chilly day and found just the things to perk up my face and spirits. All from EtsyMN members. YES!

The above is just a copy and not clickable. The working treasury will be on Etsy Treasury from now until 9:45am on Jan. 26, 2008.
