JoyBoy laughs at me and mocks.  He loves the mocking.  He can't live without the mocking.  But my self-esteem can handle it and my bird collecting can handle it.  He calls me the ornithologist, but as I gaze at these beauties, I note with finality that I can handle the name-calling.  Aren't they pretty?  I'm almost obsessed with birds these days.

Look at how delicate, feminine and unique these are!
Look at what I found!  For many of you, Etsy is old hat.  But I'm an etsy newbie and have only just now made my first purchase.  Etsy, for those of you who don't yet know, is a site that features hand-made products created by people all around the world.  I could spend all day there, browsing endlessly.  The pictures above show my first delicious purchase!  I'm giddy about it.  The packaging was beautiful and the seller even included a coupon for a discount for a future purchase and a free pair of 'thank you' earrings.  I'm so impressed.  Check out Christina's etsy site.  You can find her at:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoffeeAndCream
