Hummingbird on Carousel - Photography by Colleen

Sharing the newest listing on Etsy at Butterfly In The Attic Photography
"Photography by Colleen"
Hummingbird Merry-Go-Round Carousel Ride at Living Desert Zoo Palm Springs California Fine Art Photography and Postcards

Photograph titled "Hummingbird on Carousel" is a wonderful picture that brings me back to my Childhood. The brightly colored rides and mesmerizing music beckons children to join in the magic. The Living Desert is a magical place in itself, a naturalized zoo and botanical gardens that also has its very own animal hospital for rescued desert animals. Our community is surrounded by the desert and mountains of Southern California which means lots of nature can turn up on our doorstep at any moment. The wonderful people at the Living Desert Zoo have rescued and healed a wide variety of native animals.

This listing is for up to 16 x 24 inches (also offered in additional sizes up to 30 x 40 inches as a custom order) if you are looking for larger sizes please email me. Also offering cards, Postcards, Mugs, and much more.

Please note that I only have 1 option for shipping. I ship directly for Larger prints which has a domestic flat rate. For smaller/lighter items such as 5 x 7 prints and postcards I will refund buyer $4.00 for shipping overage (feel free to email me to confirm if the item you are purchasing will have this option.) As a rule of thumb a single Photo 8 x 10 or smaller, 10 count postcards and 10 count note cards would qualify. I apologize for the complication. Hopefully Etsy will offer a multi level shipping option soon.

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You

Good morning, I am hoping everyone is having a relaxing weekend.  So Let's Party! that is Pinterest Party!
Pinterest Party
Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
There have been many questions about where to place the hashtag "#ButterflysPin so I am including a clip to hopefully help show where to place it.
Pinterest party example

Easy Tweet: Please post this button to your blog to spread the word :)

Yellow Pear Painting Original Watercolor Batik on Japanese Rice Paper 13x17 inches
by Marcia McKinzie Art

This is an original, signed watercolor batik painting on rice paper. After the painting is finished, paraffin wax is applied, then removed.

The result is a boldly colorful, richly textured work of art.
Because some of the wax remains in the paper, the painting is durable, somewhat like fabric.

The work has a distressed, vintage-like feel.
The edges are deckled.

DIMENSIONS: 13x17 inches

Adorable for winter, these snowflake earrings are in the winter white theme. You can wear any color with these earrings; they’re so neutral and beautiful.

These fun BOHO silk tassel earrings are definitely made to show off your trendsetting style! The tassels are made of silk in a soft wheat beige color and are attached with a gold ring. The center link is a Swarovski terracotta marbled rivoli which is faceted with laser precision to add a reflection of light. These are a unique product of Swarovski that takes on the imagery of granite. On top of the Swarovski rivoli I added small sparkling Czech fire polished crystals in a shade called crystal copper and topped with a small gold-plated TierraCast heishi bead.

Cat Lover and Alice in Wonderland Bangle Bracelet with Charms
by Blue Morning Expressions

If you are quite mad about your cat, then you will love this bracelet. If your cat has you "over the moon" for him or her, then you will love this bracelet. I combined a cat and moon charm with a "we're all mad here" Alice in Wonderland Cheshire cat 1-inch charm and added a smirking Siamese to compile this cat lover's bracelet. If you know or are a cat lover, this adjustable bracelet makes a good gift.
Adjustable bangle lets you decide the size, but it is best at around 7-inches or so.

Gold Christmas Bells Ice Cycles and Holly decorate this Vintage Postcard Vintage Christmas Card 100 Year old! Greeting Card
by Postcards In The Attic

This wonderful vintage postcard is full of Christmas Symbolism from the Golden Bells in three, white country rose, holy leaves and berries, show covered sign with ice cycles and a snowy country church scene. I believe that this is an imitation of John Winsch back type since the wording doesn't go across the entire back of each section. Apparently his postcard publishing logo had been used by others in that era because of the high quality postcard he created fetch high dollar in that time. Since I am not positive I am not going to list the publisher.
