etsy friday : mando

I've received a request. Hawk wants a mandolin-themed etsy friday, and as I enjoy a challenge, I have complied. 

What is a mandolin? According to Webster, it is "a musical instrument of the lute family that has a usually pear-shaped body and fretted neck and four to six pairs of strings." Is it me, or does Webster seem a little run-on-sentence-ish today?

Where can you hear a great example? Here's one of my favorites (be still my heart, that opening harmony...but beware, there's a swear word!), and here's my definite favorite song, oh, and here's one more!

Now how to pull off an etsy friday...

First, you need a mandolin and a cute brunette to model it.

Then, you need a strap to hold it around you.

And a solid pic.

And inspiration (from the master, Chris Thile).

And inspiration for the future generation.

And a bit of art.

Somewhere to record lyrics.

Some flashy frosting.

And something special for the kiddo (hint, Ace's favorite aunt, hint).

Happy Friday!
