Treasury Thanks

Each week I devote a post to thanking the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my shops, Aunt Pheba's Vintage and Pasque Flower Creations, in treasuries over the past week.  So, to all those curators -- THANK YOU!!!

This week the treasuries trended toward bright colors and Summer themes.  Yes, it's true -- Summer is only one week away (according to the calendar)!! It feels like we fast-forwarded through Spring!  After June 21, our daylight hours will slowly begin to shrink.  So, as my new boss would say, "Make hay while the sun shines!"

Duni of PeriDotbyDuni featured my retro-inspired yellow linen bow clutch in her sunny treasury, Hello, Sunshine!  Although many of the items in Duni's shop are beautiful soft pastels, this pleated clutch in a sketchbook rose print, is bright and sunny.

Hylkje Bies of Studio Nyske featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, Poppy Season . . For those of you who crochet (or know someone who does) check out this CUTE, cute, cute pattern from Hylkje's shop!

Miss Cherry of CherryGardenDolls also featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, Colors 7.  Only one of my grandchildren still has all his baby teeth, but aren't these tooth fairy cottages just adorable!!

Nitzan Linton of bellegemsjewelry featured my baby elephants bib in bright green and blue in her treasury, Mondial 2014 - Brasil.  Many eyes are on Brazil these days, thanks to the World Cup.  This beautiful gemstones necklace from Nitzan's shop is a festive piece:

Kathy from tapestry316 featured my BBQ oven mitt in her bright treasury, Red Hot for Summer Fun! I'm guessing there will be some serious barbecuing going on today.  It's Father's Day in the USA.  I'd prefer a day at the beach (even though the nearest one is 1000 miles away)!  So for now, I'll just admire Kathy's starfish ACEO. 

Janell of DancingMooney featured my Nature pillow cover in her treasury, Wild Summer.  Janell's shop includes beautifully-packaged handmade soaps as well as handmade jewelry.  I love these pretty handmade soap bridal shower favors with a cute anchor motif.  I thought of my blogging friend, Natasha, who will be marrying a sailor very soon.

Miss Cherry of CherryGardenDolls featured my black and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Classic.  Cherry makes beautifully crafted dolls -- many with a touch of whimsy.  I just love this fabric doll in floral complete with chubby thighs! (I can SO relate!) 

On a softer note, Lana Moes of LanasArt featured my deer with birch trees baby bib in her treasury, Summer Palette.  Lana is an incredibly talented and prolific watercolor artist.  This wildflowers in vase watercolor is one of my favorites.

Ahh!  Wishing you a relaxing weekend.  Take time to smell the flowers -- and remember your Dad.
