You've been to Etsy, right? (And if not get on over and check it out!) Amazingly talented artists, right? Yeah, I think so too.
I've been wanting to share some of my favorite artists, but couldn't think of a good way to go about it. In the past I've spontaneously come out with an "Oooh! Look at this!", but I want to have something more regular to keep the inspiration and excitement flowing.
So - I'm doing a trial run of a new series here on the blog: "Latest Etsy Favorite". We'll start out with a 4-week stint. If we like it, we'll keep it! Sound good? I'll post at least once a week, but I've gotta warn you that I might shift days here and there while I figure out what works.
Here goes... my first featured fav:
Forester's Wife scarf by EveldasNeverland

What made me pick this particular piece? Well, I spent a looong day today in wetlands, where the ferns are really starting to come up in abundance. I had swamps on the brain, and decided to browse Etsy to see which artists out there were inspired by wetlands. The moment I saw this piece I knew I had to feature it. So delicate and lovely - it really does look like a fern in fiber art form.
By the way, did you know you can eat ostrich fern fiddleheads? They're delicious - remind me of asparagus, actually. Read about how to select, handle, and cook them up here.
