Etsy Item of the Week - Turtle Footstool

When I started this blog, I had hoped to feature one handmade turtle themed item per week.  I haven't been keeping it up regularly, but hope today's post is the first in a new regular habit.

Turtle Footstool in Solid Oak by ilbok on Etsy

Today when I browsed etsy, this footstool caught my eye.  Others are making beautiful jewelry and crochet turtles, but there were no other pieces of functional woodwork.  This little guy is so strong that even I could stand on him, but he's probably more appropriate for a children's bathroom than my den.  I hope he finds a good home soon.  I also hope the Acorn Furniture Folks make and sell many more of this adorable design.
