This 'n That Thursdays: An Etsy-Inspired Cardinal Christmas

Last week the HGTV blog Design Happens posted a comment announcing a partnership with Etsy for the HGTV Treasury Challenge 2011.  Anyone can create a Treasury list on Etsy, which is a pictorial list of sixteen favorite items available from artists on the site.  For the HGTV Treasury Challenge, bloggers were asked to create a holiday list of Etsy products to share with other HGTV fans.  It is simple to do and a lot of fun, and I ended up creating four lists.  One of my creations was for a Cardinal Christmas, featuring items with a cardinal theme -- you can see my list here, or just take a look at these two collages:

Cardinals like to winter close to our house, so to me they are a symbol of the Christmas season.  These bright red birds brings lots of holiday cheer, and are a perfect Yuletide theme.

I had so much fun creating four Christmas Treasury lists on Etsy, I may just go back and put together a few more.  What a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
