Treasury Thanks

The fireworks and festivities are now history for another year.  I enjoyed our time with the teenage grandkids from Colorado, but I am grateful that the nightly artillery of the neighbors' LOUD fireworks has ended.  I hope all my USA readers had a safe and happy 4th of July weekend.

As always, I want to take this opportunity to thank all the curators who featured items from my Etsy shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, over the past week.  So, to each of you --


Kathy of tapestry316 featured my green chevron oven mitt in her summery treasury, Sum-Sum-Summertime!
For those of you lucky enough to spend some of your summertime at the beach, this sea turtle ACEO will remind you of happy times.  My granddaughter loved the movie, Finding Nemo -- she cast all her family members as characters, and her dad was Crush the sea turtle -"Dude!"  

Margaret of Splendid Little Stars featured my carousel nursery wall art in her treasury, Summertime Cheer.  Margaret's tie-dyed t-shirt would add a splash of color to a summertime outing. (Love that grin!!)

Marsha Bourquin of bagsbyhags45 featured my red and white checked prairie sunbonnet in her picnic-themed treasury, Life Is a Picnic.   July is National Picnic Month.  This large floral purse is one of the many handmade bags you will find in Marsha's shop:

Nesrin of NesrinArt featured my green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Shopping Time -- Green!  I just love this navy and white chevron afghan from Nesrin's shop:

Duni of PeriDotbyDuni featured my red, white and blue bunting in her treasury, Summer Picnic :).  Duni's shop is so full of beautifully sewn feminine and floral items -- it was hard to choose just one.  But I love this gorgeous pajama set:

Amanda of craftyMyCraftyPants featured my red retro-inspired bow clutch in her treasury, Stars and Stripes.  Amanda's photo of the Navy Pier Ferris wheel reminded me of summer carnivals and the South Dakota State Fair-- I always enjoyed "the rides" in my youth.

Florence and Shirley of BearStitches featured my green chevron baby bib in their Christmas In July treasury, Christmas in July - Always White and Green in Vermont - CIJ July 11-21.   For all of you with new cameras -- or precious cameras you'll be taking with you on vacation -- this water resistant camera bag might be just what you need!  I love the Blah!Blah!Blah! phone case I purchased from BearStitches some time ago.  And if you're looking for a gadget cover -- from iPad and e-reader to cameras and phones, BearStitches has an incredible assortment of durable handcraftede bags to protect your precious equipment.

Kelly and Adam of Colourscape, photographers from Australia, also created a Christmas In July treasury, CIJ Yellow.  Thanks to Kelly and Adam for including my yellow retro-inspired bow clutch in that sunny treasury!   This field of flowers photograph will let you capture the feeling of a summer day all year round.

Juli Clarkson of GreedyMaries also featured my yellow retro-inspired blow clutch in her treasury, Hello Sunshine.   These retro-inspired pink rose garden earrings are so pretty!  And if you like these, there are LOTS more in Juli's shop!  Check it out.

Cari-anne Maule from DigiDownload  featured my Spit Happens baby bib in her Christmas in July treasury, Green for Christmas in July.  For any scrapbookers out there (or Etsy sellers in search of unique tags for merchandise or promos), check out these editable digitable download bottlecap printables --they will be 10% off for Christmas in July!

Angie Hale from TheEnchantedLadybug featured my green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Chevron City. Looking for a great little gift or stocking stuffer?  There are lots of beautifully-crafted items in Angie's shop, like this crochet coffee cup cozy.

And there you have it.  It's a wrap!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Congrats on all the treasuries! Wonderful features - thanks for including my sea turtle. Love the story, too - haha!

  2. Those are awesome treasuries! I must check out the shop offering camera bags :)
    And thank you so much for featuring my PJ set!!

    1. As a seamstress, you will appreciate all the attention to detail in the BearStitches bags. My phone bag is SO well made, and very durable. I carry it everywhere and it has held up beautifully.

  3. Kathy's sea turtle is awesome, isn't it?

  4. I love the turtle! The chevron blanket is cool, too. Congrats on the treasury features!

    1. The turtle was definitely the fave this week. I know he'd have had my granddaughter's vote.

  5. Congrats on the treasuries! I left a comment yesterday here proclaiming my love for the camera bag and the cup cozy. Perhaps I clicked off the page before clicking "publish."

    1. Bear Stitches bags are incredibly well made. And I loved that cozy, too. Such a nice color combo.
