  1. That was a fun one to curate! There are so many beautiful items to fit the theme I chose, Woodsy Fairtyale.

  2. I agree, Tricia, woodland and nautical are both fun themes to curate...and I'm sure we'll be revisiting these many more times in the future! ;o) They're so Etsy!

  3. Woodsy Kind of Love is already a fun title...made me smile:)

  4. Thanks Kristiana, guess that's the weird way my mind works! ;o) Glad to have made you smile!
