Or music. Perhaps I'm thinking of music. Because this is a cute onesie, and... Guitar. Pick. Guitar Pick.

Here's a different sort of crocheted hat. We usually see beanies, so this would be something you would not expect.

Of course, I couldn't do a post without a pair of earrings. And they're orange, too. Bonus!

Pinterest, Anyone?

Are you on Pinterest?

I stumbled across this article which talked about how of all the social networking sites, Pinterest pins last the longest. For those of us with shops on Etsy, this is a great marketing opportunity.

Do you use Pinterest? Has it helped bring buyers to your shop?

I taker.

Ah well. Next time, let me know what's going on in your shop (or feel free to post it in the comments).

September 22nd is International Car-Free Day, and what better way to celebrate than by riding a bike!
