For those of who may not have yet discovered Etsy.com, this is a site where, for the most part, everything is handmade. Cottage Industry extraordinaire! I've been doing the majority of my Christmas/birthday shopping from these wonderfully, gifted little businesses for the last several years now. Almost anything you can imagine can be found in the Etsy stores. If not handmade, antiques.
This Christmas I found an antique lock from the Pennsylvania Railroad. Out of all the Christmas presents, my son loved this the most.

Prudence Long of Lima, Ohio has a brand new shop on Etsy, called Prudy's Pen. The photos of her cards don't do them justice. Her work is beautiful and professional - framable and gift-giveable! And she does custom pieces.
I told Prudy, who has a warm, gentle spirit, that I would feature her new company on my blog. Prudy has the kind of precious spirit that we would be drawn to here in blogsphere. Please take time to visit her brand new website, www.prudyspen.com and her Etsy store. You can actually go directly to Prudy's Etsy store from her site.
And drop Prudy an encouraging word while you are there or inquire about a custom piece. You won't be disappointed.
I'm proud to say I've made a new friend in Prudy Long. And I have a list of custom pieces I want her to do for me. So, you better hurry, otherwise she will be very busy!
And if you've never shopped on the Etsy site, be careful: it's addictive!
Happy New Year Everyone!
