Treasury Thanks

It's been a BUSY week in my Etsy shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage.  The holiday rush has definitely begun!  Thanksgiving and Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are now history -- and Cyber Monday is just around the corner.  I am very grateful to be busy.

It was also a surprisingly active week for treasuries!!  I was delighted to be featured in a number of treasuries over the past week, and I want to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to the curators who featured items from my shops.  Please click on their treasuries and visit their shops, if you can spare a couple of minutes.

Linda Pruitt of Pruitt Creations featured two of my items in her treasury, Happy Thanksgiving; the brown chevron oven mitt from Pasque Flower Creations and vintage polka dot glasses from Aunt Pheba's Vintage.

Linda also has two Etsy shops -- so she's earned a double feature here!

These crossword coasters from Pruitt Creations would be a great stocking stuffer for a crossword puzzler on your holiday gift list.

And this beautiful black and white eyelet lace wrist cuff from Abigail Jayne would be the perfect accessory to wear with that little black dress to a holiday party.

Margaret of Splendid Little Stars featured my nature-inspired pillow cover in her treasury, Woodland.  This silk velvet rainbow scrunchie would be a perfect stocking stuffer for a special girl on your Christmas list.

Cynthia from Antiquity Travelers featured my winter tree baby bib in her treasury, The Colors of Fall.  These patterned patina copper earrings with jade are SO incredible!  I know this, because I bought a pair for my daughter for Christmas.  They are exquisitely crafted, and Allison will LOVE them, I am sure. (Not to worry--she doesn't read my blog.)

Patricia Leach from LittleFieldBirch (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) featured my holiday oven mitt in her cheery treasury, Peppermint Candy Cane.  This child's linen apron from Patricia's shop would be perfect for baking Christmas cookies with your favorite little person.  Love the bright fabric and button detail--and those perfect stitches!

Sian Whitehall of Jane’s Apple featured my retro-inspired red bow clutch in her beautiful treasury, What is the Colour of Christmas?   This Merry and Bright Christmas card is one of the many handcrafted greeting cards you'll find in Jane's shop.

Rebecca of NotMyBag featured my snowflakes on red oven mitt in her treasury, Gifts Under 25.  This versatile cross-body bag would also be a budget-friendly gift -- under $15.00!  Such a deal!  Love the button detail and the wide shoulder strap.

Athena Larios featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her stunningly beautiful treasury, Blue and White.  This acrylic snowflake necklace would be a lovely accessory throughout the holiday season and beyond.

Lea Marino of CalicoJunoJewelry featured my man-sized blue oven mitts in her treasury, Chef's Table.  Lea makes handcrafted statement jewelry, like these gorgeous nouveau hammered spiral circle earrings.  And note--they're on sale!!

Laura and Steve Delanty of SweetwaterGems featured my winter trees baby bib in their treasury, Winter Trees.  Laura and Steve are a husband and wife team who create unique art glass and jewelry.  This slumped glass plate would be a wonderful condiment dish, sushi dish – or I’m thinking cool desk accessory for a hard to buy for office worker on your holiday list.

Jana from Luncheonettevintage featured my navy chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Holiday Gifts Under 25. Jana is having a sale in her shop through December 3, 2013 – 25% off all vintage, antiques and collectibles!
I love this vintage plaid wool cap – a perfect casual accessory during the holiday season and beyond. 

Midwest Finds also featured my navy chevron oven mitt in the treasury, Gifts for the Foodie.  Mason jars are trending -- and this melted blue mason jar spoon rest would brighten up any kitchen.

That navy chevron oven mitt got a lot of love this week.  Sarah Beth of Magnolia Surprise also featured that mitt in her treasury, A Pop of Red.  This adorable crocheted mushroom potholder would add a pop of red to your kitchen.

Deborah Stone-Richard of RevampReuse featured my green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Gift Guide Green.  This upscaled recycled boho scarf makes a bold and beautiful fashion statement.

Kris Khan of KrisKhanDesigns makes art quilts - big, small and tiny.  Kris featured my orange and gray Lotta J bib in her treasury, Gifts Under 10.   This graphics contemporary art quilt is out of that price range, but worth every penny for this incredible work of abstract fiber artistry.

Last, but not least, Judy Nolan of MisterPenQuin and JNOriginals featured my tractor baby bib in her treasury, Sliding Down the Rainbow...YOU Tell the Story!    This Sweet Posies II Lined Journal would be a lovely gift for a special tween or teen.  

And there you have it  --- a wonderful sampling of the breadth and depth of talent that never ceases to amaze on Etsy.  THANKS again to all you talented curators.  May we all have a happy and prosperous holiday season, and, as Tiny Tim would say, "God bless us, every one!"
