Belated Treasury Thanks

Happy New Year!

In tomorrow's post, I'll share my 2013 Retrospective.  And on Friday, I'll unveil my 2014 Resolutions.  But today I want to extend a belated THANK YOU to the Etsians who featured items from my shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, since December 22, 2013.

Katrina Duncan of KatchastarDesigns featured my pastel plaid walker bag in her treasury, KatchastarDesigns Monday Paper Bag.   Katrina sells digital designs.  This cute dots and stripes chocolate wrapper is a pretty way to keep your chocolate under wraps for a birthday party ot baby shower favor, or as a sweet Valentine's Day treat for a special someone. 

Stephanie S (buyer only) featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her pretty treasury, Flora.

Jennifer Ingala of BeautybyIngala featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her refreshing treasury, Aqua!
Jennifer's shop includes her original oil paintings and painted furniture.  I just love this original oil painting, entitled Her Solo Journey.  

Debra Lynn of DLAbeaddesign featured my yellow chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Yellow and White.  Her treasury is like a ray of sunshine on a cold winter day.   You'll be ready to go back to work in style with this beautiful beaded lanyard!  It would also be a lovely coworker gift for next year's Secret Santa exchange.  

Judy Nolan of MisterPenQuin featured my bike journal in her New Year-themed treasury, Let Your Dreams Soar This Year.  This pretty Sweet Garden Gratitude Book would be perfect for those of us who keep gratitude journals (one of my 2014 resolutions).

Sabina RagRug of CrochetRagRug featured my brown and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Classic Brown and White *2-2*.  Sabina is from Austria, and her shop is full of all things crochet!  Stop by and browse.   This lovely crocheted brown and white rug would feel right at home in her treasury.

Whew!  I'm caught up with treasury Thank Yous!  Now to catch up with Etsy orders for 17 oven mitts that accumulated during my trip to South Dakota for a late Christmas with my family.  

It was SO good to see my two youngest kiddos.  Allison (26) lives in Brooklyn and works for a nonprofit in New York called Legal Outreach.  Jeffrey (31) works as an economic analyst for the Congressional Budget Office in Washington, DC.  He was able to take a few days of vacation while Congress is in recess.  We stayed with my one and only brother Jeff and his wife Sarah in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Jeff is a top-notch criminal defense lawyer, and I occasionally do free-lance legal research for him.  Jeff and Sarah gave me the best Christmas present ever -- a voucher for a plane ticket to New Hampshire to visit my oldest son Tim (37) and his family after tax season.

Happy New Year!


  1. Wow - it sounds like your kids are pretty busy people! I hope tax season flies by and you're visiting your eldest before long.

    1. Thanks, Natasha! Looking forward to the trip to NH. 2 grandkids there, too.
