Treasury Thanks

It's a cold and rainy Mother's Day in Nebraska, and we're under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch as well. But this week's treasuries offered a bright and cheery respite.  I want to extend a huge THANK YOU to the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my Etsy shops, Aunt Pheba's Vintage and Pasque Flower Creations, over the past week.

Realgemdesigns of County Durham featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her pretty treasury, Floral Garden.  This beautiful rose quartz and amethyst necklace from Realgemdesigns made me think of the rose quartz back home in South Dakota, where some gravel roads are pink.

Brenda of ItsSewVintage featured my bright floral oven mitt in her treasury, My Cute Bright Kitchen.  This vintage apron pattern reminds me of my grandmothers, who always wore aprons (except to church).

Margaret of SplendidLittleStars featured my pink roses oven mitt in her treasury, May Flowers.  This silk velvet scrunchie in rose red is one of the beautiful tie dye creations in Margarets shop.  Her scrunchies are to dye for!  

Maryann Dunbar of OldMaterialGirl featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, Happy Epsteam Mother's Day.  Love this vintage camera  (circa 1915) from Maryann's shop!

Natashalh of StalkingTheWildSnark featured my glamping oven mitt in her whimsical treasury, Just for Fun.  This cute batik seahorse soft toy fits that category to a T.  (I wonder if this is fabric leftover from Angel's shirt-making adventure?)

Duni of PeriDotByDuni featured my black and tan chevron mitt in her treasury, n a t u r a l.  Duni's shop features soft pastels and shabby chic, but when she ventures outside her comfort zone into darks, brights, and neutrals, her artist's eye is evident across that broad spectrum.  I did find one neutral item in Duni's shop, however -- this beautiful rose pendant in cream.

Eugenia Zoloto of ArtHeartsShop  (Ukraine) featured my deer in birch trees baby bib in her treasury, Under 10 -- a wonderful collection of inexpensive handmade gifts.  This beautifully intricate paper cut collage is entitled Freedom.

Wanda of SaffronFields featured my BBQ oven mitt in her Father's Day-themed Baby Boomer Team treasury, Rock n Roll Dad,  If dad is a history buff, he may be intrigued by this WWII Italian pick axe with bayonet mount.

Dixie Sisters featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in the treasury, ZigZag.  If you love chevrons, this one's for you!   With Mother's Day behind us, Father's Day and the 4th of July are just around the corner!  This colorful red, white and blue picnic caddie would be perfect for a family picnic.

Francesca e Frederica of FouLab (Florence, Italy) opened their shop March 2014, so please stop by and give this Etsy newbie shop some love.   My yellow chevron oven mitt was featured in the treasury, Mom is Mom.  FouLab has a unique assortment of accent pillows.  I love this one with shades of salmon.   Wouldn't this be a colorful dorm accessory for a grad heading off to college?  Or perhaps it would soften a lawn chair on the deck.

Sandy from SanmarnaStyle, a Baby Boomer teammate, featured my gray chevron oven mitt in her treasury entitled, Team Treasury.  Sandy is a sewist who also loves to create with her embroidery machine.  This golf towel would be a fun Father's Day gift for a dad who golfs.

The greens are would be a bit soggy today, I'm afraid!  Here's hoping for some warm, sunny days.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. And for those who have lost a mother, lost a child, or yearn to have a child -- my prayers are with you.  Hugs.
