According to the Christmas Countdown widget at the bottom of this page, there are only 52 days until Christmas! Yikes!! So much to do. So little time. And many of this week's treasuries were looking ahead to the holidays.
Valerie of NandysNook featured my snowman oven mitt in her treasury, Christmas Finds 2. This set of two wine red travel coffee cup cozies would be perfect for that drive over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house for Thanksgiving-- or snuggling up at home for the holidays.
Mike Kraus of MikeKrausArt featured my colorful dots foldover clutch in his colorful treasury, Add Some Color to Your Life. As my loyal readers know, I really like Mike's art, so it is my pleasure to share another of his wonderful works with you - -this blue and green birch forest acrylic painting.
My feathers on aqua key fob was featured in a Blue Skies treasury, curated by Flora of FabVintage1. Flora is from the UK. I just love this vintage transistor radio -- one of the many incredible vintage treasures in Flora's shop! The radio is a throwback to my youth -- long, long, ago on a farm in eastern South Dakota. At night, I could listen to KOMA in Oklahoma City (that radio station had a powerful signal to beam way up north to South Dakota!). During the day, I listened to an AM station in Pipestone, MN. I amazed my kids when we were traveling, because if they could find an Oldies station, I knew all the words to all the songs, even after all these decades. This radio shows some signs of wear, which is understandable. I took mine to the beach, the field (when I was helping with haying or harvest), and to bed. Someone may have listened to early Beatles tunes on this little vintage gem.
Alvecote Marina of Alvecote1 featured my Halloween bunting in her treasury, Nature Gifts. This extra long brown and blue handmade scarf from Alvecote1 includes some of my favorite colors from Nature -- earth and sky and water.
Lisa Lavender from TheBumbleBeadCompany featured my zebra stripe key fobs in her treasury, TEMPT Team's Great Stocking Stuffers. This beautiful lampwork bead bracelet from Lisa's shop would be a lovely holiday gift -- in a stocking or under the tree.
Cassie of CassieVision featured my red and green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Christmas Cheer, One of the fun holiday items in Cassie's shop -- "snow"-covered pinecones!
Cassie also featured my bright leaves oven mitts in her treasury, Dinner at Grandma's. I love this green beaded amulet, beautifully crafted by Cassie's mom, Karen.
Flora from FabVintage1 featured one of my accent pillows in her treasury, Honey Sweet Honey. This enamel violet brooch is one of the vintage treasures you can find while browsing through Flora's fabulous shop.
Georgia from gmaloudesigns featured my chefs on red oven mitt in her treasury, Red. I just love this dramatic art deco leather wristlet from Georgia's shop.
Susan McAnany of McAnany art photography featured my purple chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Purple Bliss. This beautiful sunflower wall art features vibrant colors on the opposite side of the color wheel from purple!
Alvecote Marina of Alvecote1 featured my brown, rust and olive on white oven mitt in her treasury, Handy Little Finds. Winter is coming! And this wonderful hand knit aviator hat would keep you warm and cozy while shoveling snow this Winter (unless you live in Florida or Hawaii-- in which case I am SO jealous that you have no snow to shovel).
Maggie Moseley of LoopDeLoom featured my retro-inspired holiday oven mitt in her treasury, Another Christmas Treasury. This pink and white infinity scarf would make a lovely holiday gift.
Flora of FabVintage1 featured my zebra stripe key chain in her treasury, Under One Roof. Seems like forever since I saw all my kids under one room. This vintage Rolls Royce necktie wood be a great holiday gift for one of our modern day Mad Men.

And last, but not least, Judy Nolan of MisterPenQuin featured my aqua and tan oven mitts in her treasury, Friday's Favorites in Blue Green and Brown. I don't know if anyone can relate, but I have trouble keeping track of ever-changing passwords. Judy has just the thing! It's a password notebook!
And there are hints of blue, green and brown!
And there you have it!
