Little Wren Pottery is Etsy featured seller

A few weeks ago Little Wren Pottery was selected to be Etsy’s featured seller. I’ll confess I was a bit surprised as featured seller is one of those things that happens to other people! I guess it’s a stamp of Etsy approval that your shop is selected amongst the huge number of shops that are out there.

The garden is always full of birds looking for a tasty meal and our builders hadn’t been back for several months. We were moving into springtime and the birds outside were building nests. Hopping around outside was a little Wren who decided he was going to build a nest in our exposed cavity wall insulation.
