Fun Friday Finds: Happy Thoughts

By Sharon Parker

"Happy Thoughts" by Jennifer Davis
Sometimes an object becomes the inspiration for a whole composition, and that can happen on Etsy, too, when a clever title on an appealing work suggests itself as a theme for a collection (aka "treasury"). So it was when I came across Jennifer Davis's work, "Happy Thoughts," shown at left.

From that beginning, I gathered a collection of items on Etsy made by Minnesota artists and crafters that I thought related to this work--either its sentiment or its appearance.

The result is the following collection of cheerful items, mostly incorporating the pastel palette that is characteristic of this artist.
