We're two sisters who are craft book publishers and found ourselves in the midst of an avocado grove. We bought this house where we planned to conduct our publishing business and in the deal got 4 acres of avocado trees thrown in. Now we're not only publishers but ranchers as well! This blog is all about avocados and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Yeah!! It's Etsy Thursday

I've found some really fun avocado things on Etsy today. See if you agree:

This original painting was done by Brad Goodell (brad goodell) as a book cover for Daniel Pinkwater's "The Snarkout Boys and The Avocado of Death". Don't you just love it:

Here's some really cute postcards. I'd love to have some of these to send to friends. Aren't they classy? They can be ordered by clicking on tumbleweed woman:

The colors in this quilt are so avocado-y. Just the perfect thing to cuddle up with on a cold winter's night as you're eating some guacamole. Don't get the crumbs on the quilt, though. See lmkquilts.

You've heard the expression, "don't take any wooden nickels". Well here's a wooden nickel you might want. It's a silver pendant made using a wooden nickel (which shows on one side) and on the other side a bit of avocado info. It's from butternut squash.

And finally, here's a really functional item. A shopping list pad featuring avocado artwork. You know what that means, don't you. DON'T FORGET TO BUY SOME CALIFORNIA AVOCADOS!!!  You can order these from we've got paper.

 That's all for etsy Thursday. Hope you've enjoyed seeing these truly unique avocado items.
