Easter Bouquets, A New Treasury and the Etsy Front Page

Best wishes for a very Happy Easter to all my blogger friends!
Here's a fresh bouquet FOR YOU!

Thanks to the heat wave, my row of bright yellow, Dutch Master daffodils, planted for cutting some years ago, has all bloomed at the same time. Fresh bouquets will be delivered to one and all at the Easter celebration and dinner that I'm going to attend.

In fact, it all bloomed so darn fast that a day after I took these photos, winds and rain knocked many of them over. Oh well, I'm still blessed with the bounty to share!

{my} English Garden

It's no secret that I'm a complete and total gardening fool, a flower addict, a botany to learn that I was in this Etsy treasury today was a lovely treat! {my} English Garden was curated by Jen who has the Ety shop Jenaissance which features vintage inspired, and often botanical, creations including necklaces and earrings--Please visit her shop and take a closer look at this garden inspired treasury. She's got a really nice blog, too, which is here.

And finally, saving the best for last, for the first time that I am aware of, a treasury that included my work was used on the Front Page of Etsy. It was the white treasury that I showed here yesterday and I learned that it was up about 5 p.m. EST on Saturday for about one hour. I missed it!

What floored me was seeing over 30 new hearts added to my shop during that hour, whoa!! It did not lead to any sales, however, which was a fallacy I had held dear...that "all I had to do was get on the "Front Page" and I'd sell like crazy." Ummmm, I guess we can now dispel THAT delusion!!

Ahhhh, no big all have a very lovely Easter with friends and family...and Happy Spring!!
