Etsy Front Page.....the way it works is this.
Members (both buyers and shop owners) of Etsy choose items that they like and create a "treasury" page which is an art form in itself. A theme and a (hopefully*) beautiful arrangement of the artworks..... its sort of like arranging a gallery show. consideration is given to color, content and emotional relationships. 1000s of treasuries are created every day.
Then the administrators of etsy choose from these 1000s of treasuries one each hour to use as the "Front Page" of etsy. it is viewed by people all over the world.
It feels really special that the Blue Mare made it there twice in the past three weeks. wow!
*i say "hopefully" because i've made a few treasuries and it is a craft i still have lots to learn about.
