Etsy Treasury: The Vintage Instant Collection

Everyone has a collection of something, and every collection has a history.  Whether it started in your childhood or your great-grandmother's, your collection grows and grows the more you appreciate the functionality, the artistry, and the history of it.  Whether amassing or just starting, check out my latest Treasury, The Vintage Instant Collection and leave some comment love.  There's surely something there that completes your very own history! 


Etsy Treasury Challenge from Claire & Janae!

Happening across a few Treasuries for this blog challenge, has presented a weekly task to make a Treasury (or more!) on Etsy with one particular item.  This week's featured item is a pair of earrings from, the Ocean Droplet earrings.  Check out my first Treasury, 'Mermaid'!

Etsy Treasury: Elephants Never Forget

Elephants look like such wise creatures, I think that's probably where that saying may have come from.  When all the kids ran for the monkeys first at the zoo, I went to the elephants.  These big, lumbering, slow creatures with such grace, they were like really big horses.  Here's a Treasury dedicated to my favourite safari animal!  Come visit the Treasury on Etsy and leave some comment love!


Meet Shiva!

We'd like to introduce you to a new addition to the family - Shiva, our new pet chihuahua!

How cute is this?  I could barely contain myself!

Following in the footsteps of my parents, who were small dog owners themselves, we had adopted Shiva after falling in love with her at first sight.  We took her out for her first big day outside on Victoria Day to Jack Darling Park in Port Credit with our neighbours, Dejah and Brandon and their son, Mylo.

Don't let the shoe fool you - it's infant size!

'Have you seen my shoe?'

Seems that Mylo was more interested in the dog than the camera!

The secret to owning a small dog is to treat it like a big dog.  I really do try not to carry Shiva around too much, and I make sure she's on the ground when she meets new people and other dogs for the first time.  The four - ahem, six, counting baby and dog - are planning a camping trip in early July, and we're looking forward to introducing Shiva to the wonders of nature and the fun outdoors!  That dog'll be sleeping for a week!

Leave a comment for Shiva and say hello! :)
