cyber-window shopping

I love browsing Etsy. Some of the items that intrigue me are removable vinyl clings with little graphics and quotations that you can hang on your wall inside or out, and then remove when you are tired of looking at them. Many of the quotations are familiar ("one little monkey jumping on a bed;" "live, love, laugh") but one I'd never seen before is in a little shop by magically made --- "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." I also love the stamped metal jewelry by klacustomcreations, especially the one that reminds me, "the tide will turn."

Those are good reminders for me these days, when life seems too often to be spinning out of control.
