Treasury Thanks

Each week I like to take the opportunity to extend a huge THANK YOU to 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.

It was a relatively quiet week for treasuries this week.  That's no surprise, because I suspect many Etsians were either glued to the TV watching World Cup matches, enjoying a summer vacation, or, in the USA, celebrating a long 4th of July weekend.   The fireworks have finally quieted --  and Tux and I are very grateful for that!!  We've had very little sleep all weekend.

We were lucky to have Jerry's daughter, Jenny, and her family visiting in Lincoln for the 4th of July weekend.  Here are some photos from an outing to Culver's -- good all-American food for hungry teens, great salads for dieters, and yummy frozen custard.

Here are granddaughters Katy and Erin, and their mom, Jenny

The boys don't look quite as happy -- with the exception of Daniel, who will a freshman at UNL this Fall, joining his big sister Erin -- AND living in Lincoln!!  Matt and I are dieting--so eating out is a bit of a challenge.  
Son-in-law Matt, and grandsons Michael and Daniel
Grandpa was definitely loving his butterscotch sundae:

But I digress.  On to treasuries!
Sarah Beth of Magnolia Surprise featured my patriotic mini-bunting in her treasury, Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue!   Four cheers for the RED in this cute set of crocheted apple coasters from Sarah Beth's shop!
Evecollection featured my green chevron oven mitt in a treasury, July #152.  (Has Eve really created 152 treasuries?!)   This beaded agate bracelet is one of the uniquely beautiful pieces you'll find at evecollection. 

And last, but not least, Sharla of Beaded Tail featured my hearts baby bib in her treasury, Summer Lovin', Happened with Cats.  Sharla does love her kitties, and a portion of her shop proceeds goes to support animal charities.  These cute kitty cat earrings would be fun to wear on a casual summer outing.   
The 4th of July is over -- now on to Christmas in July!  Will you be participating in any CIJ promos this year?


  1. Looks like you've all had a great day out! I guess if I would be deprived my dessert I'd be grumpy too ;-) At least Grandpa is enjoying it!! Lovely feature!

  2. I wouldn't look happy either if I couldn't have something yummy! Glad everyone enjoyed the holiday though! We're sure glad the fireworks are over! Thank you for including my treasury and kitty earrings too!

    1. Ha.Ha. Our cats will appreciate the relative peace and quiet, I am sure!

  3. sounds like a fun family time.
    must have been difficult to watch others enjoying such yummy treats.
