Very Belated Treasury Thanks

Each Sunday I have been devoting my blog post to extending a huge THANK YOU to the curators of Etsy Treasuries who featured items from my Etsy shops over the past week.  This week, I was visiting grandchildren in Arizona May 27-31, arriving home VERY, VERY late on Sunday night.

It was a bit tricky keeping up with the posts with intermittent wifi--and I wanted very much to spend time with the family.  So it was a real challenge keeping up with the treasuries this week -- and an even greater challenge trying to get this post together.  I completely lost my first draft!!! ARGH!!! 

Perhaps it is just post-travel fatigue, but I am beginning to seriously question my ability to continue with the Sunday posts, at least in their current "thanks to all" format.  But for this week, the tradition continues.   I will do my best to recreate the thank you post, thanking all (I hope) of the curators who included items from my shops in Etsy treasuries over the past week. 

JoannasScentedSoaps featured my red linen bow clutch in the treasury, Summer Will Arrive Soon - Red.  Here is an elegant gift set of pretty soaps from this shop. 

Nadege Gaubour of lentonnoir featured my blue man pillow cover in the treasury, Diving Blue.  I love this beautiful painted fabric notebook cover

MandalaSvetlanaBarbe featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Summer Ideas--.  This Peace of Mind mandala is one of the beautifully crafted godseye mandala's you will find in Svetlana's shop. 

Svetlana also featured my stars and stripes key fob in her treasury, June Trends .  Here is another beautiful mandala -- this one is called Budda Mandala

KaterinaMenthe featured my navy and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Summer Dreams #41.  This miniature steampunk doll is one of the unique finds in Katerina's shop.

Carol of ModernClassicbyCarol featured my happy camper oven mitt in her treasury, Oh So Sweet!  This green crochet hat is SO cute!!

Mike Kraus of MikeKrausArt -- one of my favorite visual artists -- included my patriotic mini-bunting in his treasury, Great Finds .  Mike had his elephants on parade on Facebook over Memorial Day, so I decided to feature this dark green elephant.  So cute!

Susan McAnany of McAnany featured my black and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Simplicity.  This bass guitar photo in black and white harkens back to a simpler time. 

Mike Kraus also featured my blue and lavender baking utensils oven mitt in the treasury, TUESDAY TREASURIES!  Here is a wonderfully-detailed digital download from Mike's shop called, Oh, the Humanity!

Valyashki featured that same oven mitt in her treasury, Bright Mood.  This adorable felted wool hedgehog brooch reminds me of my granddaughter Madeline in NH.  One of her favorite books was Hedgie the Hedgehog by Jan Brett.

Darla of UniqueSilverBox featured my light blue and houndstooth foldover clutch in the treasury, TEMPT TREASURY.  This beautiful amethyst ring packs a pretty purple punch!

Eli Rolandova of PillowsRollanda featured my green and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Mouse Biker on a Motorcycle On Shopping =).   Some of Eli's pillows are downright whimsical -- like this fun geekery blue pillow.

Spillija featured my purple and white chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Summer Fashion . This crochet barefoot sandals pattern makes me wish I'd learned to crochet.   Wouldn't those be pretty for a beach wedding?

Eli Rolandova of PillowsRollanda is back, this time with a Blue and Purple Shopping treasury that included my lavender and blue baking utensils oven mitt.  This cute Relax pillow is one of dozens of fun pillows you'll find a PillowsRollanda. 

Crystal Cuff of SensationalYarn included my houndstooth eyeglass case in her treasury, Shopping for 5 June Birthdays + Father's Day + 2 June Weddings!!!  Well, Etsy is the perfect place to shop for unique gifts!  I have a baby shower to attend in a few days -- and this handmade baby blanket would be a lovely gift for a special baby. 

RosaShawls featured my textured brown pillow cover in her treasury, Timeless.  Rosa's shawls are simply stunning.  I fell in love with this pretty peach shawl.  

Suzy of TheDustyWingVintage featured my colorful birds oven mitt in her treasury, Birds of a Feather .  This mid-century yellow fondue pot brings back memories from my college days, long, long ago.  And notice -- it's 25% off!

Christina Guenther featured my orange and gray floral baby bib in her treasury, It's Beautiful Here .  This Peace silver pendant is a beautiful piece -- a "statement" necklace of a different kind.   

Valyashki featured my bright blue utensils oven mitt in her bright and colorful treasury, Bright Mood.   Valyashki is a shop full of delightful wool felted creations.  This adorable felted hat for a PukiFee was SO cute, I just had to share it with you!

Spillija featured my purple chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Summer Fashion .  I love this colorful crochet summer style hat.

Eli Rolandova of PillowsRollanda is back!  This time with a Blue & Purple Shopping treasury, which included my lavender floral oven mitt.  This bright and cheery Break pillow made me smile.  Couldn't we all use a break sometimes?

And Spillija is back!  She included my gray and yellow uptown oven mitt in her treasury, Waiting for Summer.  The wait was over in Arizona, with temperatures well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  But it's not too early to start thinking about making things for Fall craft fairs and the holidays.  These warm woolen mittens could be one of my favorite things (along with raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, of course)! 

Eli Rolanda featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Purple Passion .  Here's another one of Eli's whimsical pillows that made me smile - Googling

Julia of Fibernique featured my houndstooth eyeglass case in her treasury, Thursday Sundries .  I love these fiber beads from Julia's shop.  And she also has a tutorial to show you how to DIY fiber beads. Have I mentioned that I have an enormous number of scraps -- and they seem to multiply like rabbits? 

I am SO jealous of the perfect white background in her photos, too!

Vickie Wade of VickieWadeFineArt featured my yellow chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Feeling the Sun.  This three sisters art print from Vickie's shop shows three girls feeling the sun in their pretty sundresses. 

Carol of ModernClassicbyCarol included my yellow linen bow clutch in her treasury, Bright and Shiny May.  One of Carol's specialties is wedding napkin rings.  I love these pretty white and yellow napkin rings. 

Susan McAnany of McAnany featured my red folk art key fob in her treasury, Red Summer Trends .  This Anticipation wall art shows another summer trend -- outdoor dining -- also in red!

Judy Nolan of MisterPenQuin included my green and white graduation bunting in her treasury, If I Can't Have the Ocean, I'll Take Green & Turquoise, Please.  I'm running out of pages in my current gratitude journal, so I have my eye on this pretty songbirds gratitude book.  Isn't that pretty!

Natasha of StalkingTheWildSnark included my stars and stripes key fob in her treasury, chock full of Father's Day gift ideas, Father's Day Finds .  For an over-the-top special dad gift, check out this amazing segmented wood art pen. 

And last, but certainly not least, Margaret of SplendidLittleStars included my baby girl bib in pink and red in an adorable treasury, Little Alice .  You'll find tie dye -- the real deal -- in Margaret's shop, like this cute heart t-shirt

And there you have it -- albeit a little late.

Have a wonderful week!




  1. The mandalas are beautiful and the hedgehog brooch is so cute! Second cutest thing I've seen today, right after a picture from a customer of her actual hedgehog with one of my snuggle sacks. =)

    I can't fault you for being unsure about continuing the current format. You're always in so many treasuries that this post must mean a whole lot of work!

  2. Glad you had a good visit with your family!
    Love those mandalas!
