The Great Etteam Mustache Challenge!

What is it about a mustache that is alluring to so many?  Is it the macho element- a symbol of power, or do they just evoke a warm and fuzzy feeling?  Whatever the reason for the fixation, Etsy has established this symbol as a genre to be admired, celebrated and sold.  In that tradition, here are the fun mustachioed offerings of the Etsy Treasury Team for your enjoyment!

Time for a Fabulous Etteam Giveaway!

Yes, it's time for another fabulous Etteam giveaway!! And this one is so fabulous you'll definitely want to enter as many times as possible!

Giveaway Item: Our gorgeous giveaway item comes from the Etsy shop of Laurels by Laurie, and is this beautiful original design, OOAK silk floral Summer Garden Wreath!

This is an approximately 18" x 18" silk floral wreath with a garden design--bright and colorful too. Laurie tells us, "I have sold many of these silk floral wreaths and people do keep them up all year, say in the kitchen, or anywhere you'd like. I've had customers say they hang them outside on their covered patios during the spring/summer. I was thinking if you live in an apartment with a small balcony and don't have any place to put plants or a garden--this garden wreath would be perfect and you don't even have to water it!!"

The base of this silk floral wreath is a grapevine round. I have put on a redwood painted fence, some garden gloves, a heart cut out of birch wood and spray painted whitewash, an authentic vintage seed packet (Vinca) decoupaged on wood, a real small vintage clay pot (dirt included), and a cute little rusty tin pitcher with some garden tools. The florals are silk mauve and white, along with a few other accent flowers.  Value:  $50.
