Festive Robins and Etsy update

A reminder that Crafty Green Boyfriend's robin photo is now gracing one of the Friends of the Earth Christmas card designs. You can see it (and buy it!) here. It's a great photo of possibly one of the fattest robins ever.

Thinking about robins, I was inspired to put together this festive robin treasury on Etsy. (For anyone who isn't on Etsy, a treasury is a selection of favourite items made by other people. I didn't make any of the items in the treasury!). I'm constantly inspired by the range of amazing crafts and vintage items on Etsy and if money weren't an issue I could be tempted to spend a lot of money there.

I've been steadily adding things to the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop, Today I added this interesting piece of sea glass to the sea glass and sea pottery section of the shop. I'm hoping to add more to the beaded bookmark section too and also am putting together another mini collage kit for the supplies section of the shop

As ever, red text contains hyperlinks that take you to other webpages where you can find out more.

I love your little robin in the snow.
Our American robins head south before the snow flies so our Christmas cards have cardinals in similar poses on cards.

Your have lots of pretty items in your Etsy shop. And the robin Christmas card is cute. I love the sea glass it is so pretty. Wish you lots of luck with your Etsy store.

I think we all love Robins Juliet, especially at Christmas. I think we try to ignore that fact that they are such aggressive birds.

Ms Sparrow - Yes, I've seen lots of cardinals on American Christmas cards! A bird I'd love to see in real life!

Eileen - thanks, glad you like my Etsy shop!

Weaver - it's interesting about robins, though, because although they're very aggressive to each other, they're one of the friendliest birds towards us!
