Treasury Thanks

Each week I like to give a big THANK YOU to the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my Etsy shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, over the past week.

Christmas Eve is only 30 days away -- and Thanksgiving is next Thursday.  Yikes!! Holiday themes were evident in this week's treasuries. We had a dusting of snow here, and "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas," as the old song goes.  

Margaret of Splendid Little Stars featured my fall oven mitts in her treasury, Family Means the World to Me. If there are any new babies in your family circle, these adorable tie dye infant socks would be a fun gift.

Kimie Sagisaka of tomoandedie featured my green chevron oven mitts in her green-themed treasury, Special Gift.  Kimie's shop has Japanese kimono fabric, and beautiful accessories made from those fabrics.  I just love this beautiful silk piece:

Inbar Alezraki featured my grunge pillow cover in her treasury, Grunge.  Teens and young adults can be a challenge on the gift list, and Inbar's treasury offers some great suggestions.   But let me assure you, there's nothing grungy in Inbar's shop -- only exquisitely crafted handmade jewelry, like this gorgeous diamond engagement ring.  

Mary Nedry of countryprim featured my red and green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Tis the Season.  This cheery snowman wreath could brighten a front door this holiday season.

LL Pyles of DustyDiggerLise (my cousin-- our dads were first cousins) gave me a double feature in her delightful treasury, Pinkie Winks.  The Bavarian china featured from Aunt Pheba's Vintage that was featured in her treasury belonged to the REAL Aunt Pheba (my paternal grandmother).  Lise also included the pink chevron oven mitt from my Pasque Flower Creations shop.  Thank you and thank you!

Lise’s shop specializes in vintage printed items, but she also has some wonderful upcycled gift tags, and handmade jewelry.  It’s a GREAT place to browse – 919 items at last count!!  Yowza!  With so many items, it was hard to choose just two features.

I love this 1955 Art Deco Print from a Sheraton Ad.  My Chicago readers will appreciate this, I'm sure!

And these pink needlecraft gift tags - upcycled vintage - would make lovely gift tags for the holidays or year-round.

Elan of AntheraDesign featured my green chevron oven mitt in the treasury, Give Comfort, Get Joy :-).   These organic acorn earrings are such fun!  Some days (especially this time of year), I feel a little nuts.

Joolz  of joolzbyme – New South Wales featured my snowflakes on red holiday oven mitt in her treasury, Here Comes Christmas!  This pretty pink and green rose necklace would be a lovely holiday gift.

Pam Cake from EastIdahoCompany featured the vintage butter churn from Aunt Pheba's Vintage in her treasury, Mommy, I Am Bored.  Pam's family must have had the same response to that complaint as mine did -- do chores!  (So I learned at a young age to amuse myself with fabric scraps and books, so I was rarely bored!)

I've been seriously considering getting a postage scale, and this vintage postage scale might be less intimidating to this techologically-challenged granny!

And there you have it -- another great week of treasury highlights!  Thanks, again, to all the curators.
To my readers in the States, Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. Congrats on all the features! Love the wild and crazy socks and that postal scale is really neat!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Kathleen! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I have a postage scale - I need it to weigh the fabric before it is shipped!
    That rose necklace is gorgeous!

    1. When I saw that necklace, I thought of you.

  4. Wow, only one month til Christmas...that's a real eye-opener!
    Congrats on all these lovely treasuries!

    1. Thanks, Edi! It will be a mad race for the next month!
