Treasury Thanks

It was a nice "back to the normal routine after the holidays" week on the Etsy Treasury scene.  This post is my opportunity to extend a big THANK YOU to the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, in treasuries over the past week.  Special thanks to Marcia of ImagineThatBaby, who curated multiple treasuries this week, and featured items from my Pasque Flower shop in three of them!!!

Seductive Body Works featured my lavender chevron oven mitt in the treasury, Lavender.  Although I personally have way too many fat rolls to wear a belly button ring (new diet starts with two chubby buddies on January 17), if I were younger and svelte, I'd love this triple heart belly button ring. 

Marcia from ImagineThatBaby featured my hearts baby bib in her treasury, Love in Purple, Pink and Green.  Speaking of love and pink --- I think these pretty little pink heart booties are just the cutest things ever!

Georgia of HappyHeartsKnitty also featured my hearts baby bib in her treasury, Let It Snow.  School kids in Lincoln had a Snow Day this week, and we had bitterly cold temperatures all week as well. But this handmade neck warmer in red, purple and pink, would help fend off those wintery blasts in style!

Lisa Lavender of TheBumbleBeadCompany featured my nature-themed pillow cover in her TEMPT Team treasury, Salt of the Earth.  This lovely beaded necklace in earth tones would feel right at home in her pretty treasury.  Love the matching earrings, too!

LovelyKnotsBoutique featured my pink roses oven mitt in her treasury, Tempt Team Featured! #1. This crochet scarf in shades of red and orange is one of the beautifully-crafted crochet accessories you can find at LovelyKnotsBoutique.

Marcia of ImagineThatBaby featured my poppies on teal wedding registry oven mitts in her treasury, Hearts and Flowers.  Wouldn't these red Valentine booties be cute for baby's first Valentine's Day?

And last, but not least, Marcia of ImagineThatBaby featured my pink chevron oven mitt in her pretty in pink treasury, Tickled Pink.  In addition to the pretty crocheted items in Marcia's shop, she also sells these pretty little baby gift boxes in sets of 12.

And there you have it!  Another great week for Etsy treasuries!  Thanks, again, to all the curators for the features.  I love the spirit of cooperation and teamwork on Etsy.  As"truly handmade" Etsy entrepreneurs, we are all in this together as we fight to stay competitive in the "new Etsy" with its mass produced goods and re-sellers.

I was so sad to see the brightly colored packages on the Etsy holiday season front page give way to more dark and dreary photos.  As if the dark days of Winter aren't depressing enough!! End of rant.

A friend sent me a link to a calculator to determine my age in days.  I'm 22,505 days old today. Wow, does that sound OLD!!

On that sobering note, I'll sign off and wish you a great week --- 7 MORE days!



  1. Loving all the baby gear - especially those booties :)

  2. I had the same thought when I discovered Etsy had gone back to the dark main page.
    Nice features today - love the baby booties :)

    1. I'm glad I am not alone. These Winter months are dark and gray enough without the added darkness of the main page. I also love Marcia's little booties.

  3. Congrats on all these treasuries! I love all the pink features this week :)

    1. I immediately thought of you when I clicked on Marcia's Tickled Pink treasury!

  4. I love all of the cozy items in here this week! Perfect for the terrible polar vortex that came around again. UGH.

    1. We had that ONE nice day -- now back to the deep freeze! Brr!
