I comb through the Etsy Finds e-mails everyday, looking at there beautiful choices for the holidays, and themed gatherings. Hoping beyond hope that I will be included. But yesterday, I didn’t have time, I was simply to busy.
But late last night, I noticed that my traffic had just absolutely exploded, and I had no idea where it was coming from. I looked through google analytics, and saw a mysterious annotation, called bronto. Well what is bronto, and why is my traffic coming from google bronto. What in the world is that I asked myself.
Well after doing some digging I found out that bronto is the service that Etsy uses to send out there Etsy Finds e-mails. But alas, I had deleted all of my emails for the day, and there is no archive for Etsy Finds. I continued my search looking through my email trash can. Until there it was, the Etsy Find, Tell your Friend Veronica… It’s Time to Celebrate Hanukkah! And it had in it under the gifts for men, my beautiful, Song of Solomon Dog Tag Necklace. Woo Hoo!!!

I like to make my own holiday ornaments every year. It adds a special touch to the holiday season, and each year as you add them to the tree, those handmade ornaments just have so much more meaning then the store-bought ones. This year our ornaments theme was Swiss Gingerbread Bird Houses. As always I tried to be as eco-friendly as possible, using felt made from recycled plastic bottles!
So let’s get started with this how to:

Well, I’ve been meaning to do a Hanukkah post, but with getting ready for my sale this weekend, and Rich being sick I’m actually surprised that I’m getting to it before Hanukkah is over! So Hey Everyone Happy Hanukkah! Woo Hoo!
Personally this has always been one of my favorite holidays. The story is great, you know the classic story of Rome taking over another land, killing the people, kicking out there gods and generally being A**hats; but then amazingly the underdogs, the Israelites, who are being defended by the Maccabees, manage to kick out the Romans, and take back their city. Of corse the actual miracle comes later, when they get back to the temple; find idols everywhere, and only enough oil for the Eternal Light to last one day. Evidently it takes eight to produce. Miraculously the oil burnt for all eight days, but I was always a bit more impressed with the fact the the Maccabees were able to drive out the Romans, then with the oil lasting a week. They must have been some pretty bad ass dudes.
