Happy Valentines Day!!!!!!

Sacred Starburst Heart brooch in Etsy Treasury!

It's not often that an Etsy treasury gets me really excited. For those of you who don't know what a treasury is, its a collection of Etsy creations from various makers curated by another Etsian. They can be really lovely and they are certainly a buzz to be included in.  But the themes while always nice and always well curated are themes you just fall into - this one by the folks at FolkHeartRecords had me thinking about just how vibrant and creative the curators in Etsy can be!

The challenge:  There is a secret message behind this treasury that will wake you up, make you smile and want to share the day.... click to see the treasury and comment if you can figure it out!

That's right! Shiny rabbit has new market dates set - new stock will be at each market so you can expect to see something different from us with each visit.  It's worth visiting us as often products are introduced at special prices before heading onto our Etsy shop front so pick up a wonderful object from us at one of these markets!
