Have you heard about Etsy? It’s an online marketplace where artists and craftspeople offer their wares. After a long time lurking around the various shops, marking some as favorites so I could go back to them, I finally made my first purchase.
Shortly after we moved to Acton, Hydra and I were sitting on our new bench in the back yard when a raven flew overhead. We could hear her wings whispering through the air. It was the kind of sound that would have been drowned out by the constant hum of the city in our previous digs. We grinned at each other. We really were home.
If I were going to get a tattoo, it would be a raven. But since I like being able to donate blood, I opted for these gorgeous pendants. I couldn’t get a great photo of them, but you can see them and other terrific pieces at CollettesTreasures on Etsy. The artist was wonderful to deal with, gave me a longer cord upon request, and shipped promptly. It was a very good first experience with Etsy.
