Treasury Thanks

It was a BIG week for treasuries!  And I want to give a big THANK YOU to all the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my Etsy shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, in treasuries over the past week.   Enjoy some eye candy from their shops, and please like, share, Pin, and visit a few shops if you have a spare minute. 

Linda Pruitt of Pruitt Creations featured my red and green oven mitt in her treasury, Ready?  (My answer to that question would have to be -- not yet!!)  Linda is famous for her home sewn aprons, and this mommy and child apron set would be perfect for holiday baking or gifting.

Nancy from SugarFunOrnaments featured my tropical fish toddler drawstring backpack in her fun and colorful treasury, Colorful Fun Faves.  This beautiful pink bird ornament from Nancy's shop reminded me of my blogging buddy and Etsy teammate, Edi of memoriesforlifesb.  Edi loves pink, and birds hold a special place in her heart.  Edi and her mom surprised me by visiting my booth at the Silver Hawk Craft Fair yesterday!  Such fun to meet a "virtual" friend in person!!  And meeting Edi's mom was also a delight!

K K from TheRavenwood featured my orange chevron and dots bunting in her treasury, Monday Picks.   I love this maple leaf pillow from  KK's shop.

KK also featured my retro Christmas oven mitt in another treasury, This & That.  So here's another fun find from KK's shop -- this wonderful fabric garland!  I'm thinking this would be perfect for a rustic wedding!

Denise of QuiltsHerbsGiftsDAHW featured my OOAK fabric wall art (no longer available after yesterday's craft fair)  in her treasury, Autumn's Beauty.  This pretty autumn leaves potholder from Denise's shop would add a colorful touch of autumn to your kitchen.  I can almost smell the fresh apple pie.

My cousin Lise aka LLPyles of DustyDiggerLise featured my argyle baby bib in her treasury, Taking Blue Into Fall.  Lise's shop specializes in vintage paper goods -- magazines, ads, prints, postcards -- and she has over 1100 listings!  I love all the Mad Men-era ads in her shop.  But today I chose to feature this pretty vintage post card of a river scene.

Nancy from SugarFunOrnaments featured my LSU colors baby bib in her purple-themed treasury, Tuesday Treasures.  This pretty cake topper would be perfect for a winter party, or a Frozen-themed tween girl's birthday party.

Lacote of LACOTEKIDS featured my preppy argyle bib in her treasury, LAC2156.  This blue nursery art would add a touch of classy cuteness to a special baby boy's nursery.

Karen Hafel of timetalentjewels featured my pink and red folk art baby bib in her treasury, October Glow.  This pretty pebbles in the sand bracelet is aglow with pretty Fall colors!

Karen Duke of HeartstringsandStitches featured my Halloween Bunting in her Tuesday Treasury.  This folk art scarecrow doll from Karen's shop would be a fun home or office accent piece this Fall. 

Diane Waters of muddywaterscc and the TEMPT Team featured my fall table runner in black and tan (now sold out!) in her treasury, October Trends.  This wonderful blue, purple and white coffee or tea mug caught my eye.  An analogous color scheme never looked so cool! 

Orange is such a happy color!  And Antiquity Travelers played that to the max in this happy orange treasury, Orange You Glad?   These coral earrings  (such a pretty shade of orange with a hint of pink) are one of the gorgeous pieces of  jewelry you can find at Antiquity Travelers. Treat yourself--or starting checking names off your gift list. 

Karen Hafel of timetalenjewels featured my poppies on teal oven mitts (now extinct) in her beautiful treasury, Bright October Morning.  These fantastic rainbow wool hotpads would brighten any Fall table -- a pretty resting place for hot holiday fare.

Lorraine of EyeGloArts featured my Halloween bunting in her treasury, A Burst of Orange.  I think my twenty-something daughter would love this glow-in-the-dark pendant from Lorraine's shop -- perfect for dancing the night away at a night club.

Marcia of ImagineThatBaby featured my autumn leaves oven mitts in her pretty Fall-themed treasury, Orange You Glad It's Fall?   This adorable pumpkin baby hat is just one of the cute, cute, cute baby items you can find in Marcia's shop.  (My dad's nickname for me when I was little was Punky - or Punkin', so perhaps that's why I love this little hat so much.  My dad died when I was 14, but he was a kind and gentle man, sorely missed.)

Nancy Duncan of Eponas Crystals featured my Halloween bunting in her treasury, Shades of Autumn.  This Lakota tribal necklace from Nancy's shop is tribal in the truest sense.  My children's grandmother is a member of the Lakota tribe, and my daughter, in early adulthood, tapped into those tribal roots and also became a card carrying member of the Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) tribe. 

Switching seasons from Fall to Spring, Tamara of Landby featured my daisies on blue oven mitt in her treasury, Simply Daisies.  I sometimes forget that it is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere!
This beautiful wheel thrown and hand carved teacup in teal is one of the gorgeous handcrafted pottery pieces you'll find in Tamara's shop.  Santa, if you happen to be reading this blog post, I REALLY, really like this mug!

Angie Turner of Woodland Wossit featured my argyle baby bib in her treasury, Autumn Carries Gold in It's Pocket.   This beautiful blue toned scarf is doubly on trend, with it's vibrant blue colors and geometric shapes. 

And last, but not least, Sherry from treasuresRtimeless featured my autumn table runner in her treasury, The Wonderful Colors of Fall - October Challenge for CIJ.    Sherry's vintage shop is full of fabulous finds -- like this vintage taupe mesh purse -- a unique and classy handbag for festive holiday parties.

Now wasn't that a fun browse??   Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend.



  1. You know me all too well. I was immediately drawn to that pink bird!
    And I love that teal mug as well!

    1. I had a hunch that might be your favorite :-).

  2. Wow - so many features! Congratulations. I really like the vintage post card. My husband used to visit this antique store when he was briefly stationed in Connecticut and he picked up a lot of really cool vintage post cards there. We have them in an album now.

    1. What a great idea - to preserve those vintage post cards in an album. You'd love browsing through Lise's shop.

  3. I think your effort got noticed:) Seems like more treasuries you are in every week:) but it well deserved! Happy sales everyone!

  5. That's a lot of treasuries! Congratulations. And how exciting to meet Edi! It was so nice of her to stop by. She seems like such a nice person, and I'm sure your visit was nice and memorable. I'm jealous though because I'd love to meet one of my blogging friends in person. I've come to meet so many great people in blogland.

    1. I know -- I feel as if I know some of my blogging buddies better than my "real life" friends.

  6. so many features! Congratulations!
