Didjya notice that my snapshot banner has been replaced with a kick-ass logo? I know, wayyyy better, right?
Well, cats and kittens, I just got that beauty, unsolicited, in my Facebook inbox yesterday evening. That someone would take some of their precious time and considerable talent to use, without even being asked, or asking anything in return, to help my blog… I’m tearing up again thinking about it. What an amazing thing.
Every time I find out that you shared my link, commented, liked it on Facebook, emailed me, filled out my contact form, anything to let me know you’re reading me and sharing my words with others, it fills me with immense gratitude. I’ve gotten so many kind words from people telling me that they’ve been waiting for someone to say what I’ve been saying. I cannot thank you enough. <3
So this fine young woman doesn’t want to be named, but she did give me permission to pimp out her amazing ETSY shop. She runs Bastiat’s Lady:
“Because the love of liberty should be a beautiful thing.” Bastiat’s Lady serves to provide beautiful and inspiring jewelry to foster conversation and attract all the right kinds of attention.
Welcome to Bastiat’s Lady, a shoppe specializing in fine handcrafted jewelry featuring philosophers, economists, political theorists & great thinkers of all kinds.
These beautiful pieces of jewelry have been shouted out by the Libertarian Party and she tabled at last year’s International Students for Liberty Conference.
It sounds crazy though, right? Do philosophers, economists, political theorists & great thinkers really make for great jewelry? YES! I just want to highlight three pieces, but she’s got way more.
