I made my first Etsy purchase last month. I found this great ornament of Africa with a heart cut out of Ethiopia. It's made out of metal and I love it even more than I thought I would. Of course, it couldn't be tucked away in the Christmas box. It'll hang on a tree (really a big branch I strung up with white lights) in our dining room all year long.
Such a great reminder of the treasure that awaits us in Africa.
