I landed my first Treasury on Etsy today! For those who do not know what it is…basically Etsy members can create a collection of 12 listings (with 4 alternates) that are put together in a Treasury. The big deal about getting one though is that it is really difficult because you have to have *perfect* timing. I decided this morning that I would see where the count was at, and it happened that Treasury would be opening right around the time I was on lunch (so I didn’t feel bad about sitting at my desk with my eyes glues to the screen, right hand on the mouse, and left hand ready to click “CTRL+V” the second the Treasury opened.)
I chose the cow theme because I always think of France when I see cows (or I think about the time when I was in 7th grade and my older sister and I raised a steer for 4-H….yeah, my love for real cows died that year, but I still love stuffed cows). Oh, and then in high school my aunt gave me a pillow-sized stuffed cow that I named Quackers. I hated flying but had to do it quite a bit, so Quackers always flew with me. He even spent a year in France with me. Back to France….for some reason any time we were driving/riding the train, and we saw a cow, everyone would yell, “Ooo, La vache!” I’m not sure why this occured, but it still makes me laugh (and I still want to yell “Ooo, La vache!” whenever I see cows.
