Handmade Makes You Happy

The reason I buy handmade is because I love the attention to detail

and love that goes into a handmade item. I am not presuming that the artist loves me, but I know that they love

their craft. I can tell when something is made well, and is unique, that the artist gets joy from making something

fun and pretty that will make other people smile.
My most recent purchase is a funky painting of a vintage

radio. I love it and hung it up in my office.
