it’s etsy monday, with a twist
Posted in etsy favourites, handmade, nature August 4th, 2008 by piablog

Since I wasn’t able to post one of my etsy favourites last monday, I thought I’d share something extra etsy special today. What could it be? Well, it’s something that has flood those little underwater cables that link us all to each other, in the last 24 hours. Something that totally rings my bells, and makes me jump up and down with sustainable, creative giddiness. Something that says, “this story totally ROCKS!!”. What, who, and why, you ask? Here is a clue:


I’m talking about this Handmade Portrait on Susan Gibbs from my etsy favourite Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm.It is an incredible sneak peek into the life and love of Susan, a brilliant little short piece on her new life raising sheep and goats for the yarn she sells in her Etsy Boutique.

So make yourself a cup of tea and take a few minutes to watch this wonderful video here, read more about it in The Storque here, read the blog here, and visit Susan and Patrick’s etsy store here.

I hope you enjoy this segment of…


Author’s note: Um, French Boy, change of plans – forget the hustle and bustle of our city life… fancy starting a farm with me out in the middle of nowhere: just you, me, and some gorgeous creatures like the ones above? No? Oh.

Any other takers?

    Love all animals, farms, nature even the smell of manure in a horse stall. However, my dream is to live in a chaotic place like Tokyo. Oh Pia, if only my dream could come true.

    goats cheese, shepherding camp weekends, and cuddling those little creatures, it’s all tempting! but yoli, dreams DO come true, I promise you. Although I do not share your enthusiasm for the chaotic-ness of Tokyo – it’s all yours! xx
