In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day coming up, I’ve been posting green Hug Me Slugs in my toy shop. There are more on my desk, in progress. This medium green fleece slug is admiring the first of our spring flowers,
as did his light mint green friend yesterday. The daffodils are in bloom here as well, but I haven’t weeded out the garden! Can’t have slugs posing next to dried leaves.
I was editing these earlier today, and thought this particular scene was amusing. My desktop aquarium screensaver took over when I got up to take a break, and the fish invaded my slug photos. The one slug looks very interested.
Right after I posted my light mint green slug yesterday, he (she?) was featured in an Etsy treasury of slug items! I think this is one of my favorite treasuries so far. Slug art, crafts, jewelry, even slug barrettes! And the baby hat…
I love this baby hat by xoLoveRosie on Etsy, and this photo. Even the name on the listing makes me laugh: “psycho slug alien baby from outerspace hat”.
So much fun. My art toys and prints have been featured in a lot of treasuries lately, and our original one-of-a-kind art dolls are showing up in a bunch too. Be sure to check out our Ruffing’s Etsy shop if you haven’t already. We’re about to take some photos of new art dolls. I’ll get them posted as soon as I can.
