Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

A Family Affair

This is how running an Etsy shop can affect family dynamics.

No one is immune from being pressed into service as a model.

My youngest kid is my favorite subject because, like his mom, he revels in absurdity.

Set of 3 Vintage Ice Picks: Instant Collection


Handknit Heather Tweed Mens Socks


My daughters-in-law and grandbabies are also called in occasionally.
 Classic Quilted Pink Nylon Robe, Size Small/Medium


Even if it's only to hand model:

Exceptionally Lovely Faux Pearl Bracelet with Gold Vermeil Filagree Clasp

 Girl's Glittery Sequin Crocheted Bonnet / Hood OOAK

When my daughter's out visiting, she does her bit:

VTG  "Custom Casuals" Woven Dress Coat: Pattern in Turquoise, Green, Purple

New OOAK Retro-Style Spangle Sequin Hat

 PRICE SLASH EPSteam SUPER Sale: Dreamy Romantic Vtg Gunne Sax by Jessica Dress in Palest Pink

And of course, the dogs participate occasionally.


And this groovy old chick puts in an appearance now and then. Not often, though, because a certain someone cannot seem to figure out how to take a decent photograph.

Under extreme circumstances that certain someone will be pressed into service:

 Even mysterious strangers occasionally lend a hand.
 Striped Referee Shirt:  Get Your Whistle Handy

Some years back, I came across a blog post entitled The Men of Etsy, sharing various photographs of guys modeling for the Etsy shops of their significant others. It was quite entertaining. I may have to revisit this subject for myself.

Meanwhile, keep on shopping!
