Treasury Thanks - What A Week!!

It was a banner week for my little Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations!  My poppies on teal oven mitts made Etsy's front page, so my page views and favorites spiked to new highs.  Heady stuff!  But I also wish to thank ALL the treasury curators who featured items from my shop over the past week. The spirit of collaboration and teamwork on Etsy is amazing.  I am so grateful to be a part of that community.

Monique Low of Toasted Glass featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, Flower Bomb.  This beautiful poppy vase would be a colorful Mother's Day gift:

Timothy Adam of Fanpageology featured my orange chevron oven mitt in his treasury, Fanpageology Featured Items: Orange and Blue.  He received over 1400 submissions, so it was a real honor to be one of the 16 chosen for this treasury, which was #1 for 5 hours.  I subscribe to Tim's Handmadeology blog, which I have found to be a fabulous resource for Etsy sellers.  In Tim's words, “Handmadeology exists for the purpose of teaching artists how to successfully sell their handmade goods online, and to feature the newest handmade, vintage and supply items found on Etsy.”  Tim offers free advice on the blog, and great resources reasonably priced -- like his new Facebook guide, Fanpageology: Where Etsy Meets Facebook -- and now there's an APP for that!  Tim's Etsy shop has dozens of downloadable resources, like this Etsy Relevancy Strategy guide:

Ragay Jewelry featured my leaves on periwinkle oven mitts in her pretty treasury, Periwinkle and Polka Dots.  I love periwinkle -- a pretty color and fun to say.  This beautiful pink opalite necklace set is a beautiful   shade of periwinkle:

Magdalena of BlurryBerryBasket featured my rainbow chevron oven mitt in her treasury, A Pastel State of Mind.  Magdalena is an Etsy newbie.  Her shop is only one month old. She offers beautiful fine art photography, like this lovely cat in lavender photo:

Boriana Marinova of GermanistikArt featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, Just Poppies -- Al Around You.  I love the bright flowers on this handmade quilling card from Boriana's shop:

Suzanne Leutscher of GoudsmederijHerfst  featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her gorgeous treasury in shades of aqua, navy and gray, Mother's Day Gifts.   This Mom necklace would be a thoughtful Mother's Day gift that any mom would wear with pride.

Maria from BolstersMills, a vintage shop, featured my yellow chevron oven mitts in her Mother's Day treasury, Mom's DEFINITELY Got the Look.  This pretty vintage cup and saucer from Maria's shop is just my cup of tea!

Barbara Seelen of BHiveDesigns featured my pink elephants baby bib in her whimsical treasury, Pink Elephants.  And speaking of PINK, don't you just love this modern floral clutch with hot pink lining?

And now - the BIG ONE!  Gino Rizzi of GinoRizziPlasticien  from  Antwerp, Belgium featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her beautiful FRONT PAGE treasury, One Flower A Day.  Such an honor!  Gino's shop specializes in upcycled items like this unique upcycled plastic bottle lamp.

giZZDesigns, a wearable art shop, featured my gray chevron oven mitt in her beautiful treasury in gray tones, BEST MOM EVER.  For these chilly early Spring days, this pretty pink neck warmer would be a lovely Mother's Day gift for Mom or Grandma.

Edi of memoriesforlifesb featured my Spit Happens baby bib in her Friday Features - April Showers blog post.  Edi is a laser maven who can turn an ordinary glass or piece of wood into a work of art.  I just love this woodland photo album.  Wouldn't this be a lovely baby shower gift?

newhopebeading featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her bright and cheery treasury, Poppy Red.  This wonderful personalized mother's necklace would be Mother's Day gift, sure to become a keepsake.

Leena from LeenaVilaDesigns featuerd my Spit Happens baby bib in her treasury, April Showers --- well, you know . . . . You could pamper your pet with this soft velveteen pet bed duvet cover from Leena's shop.

And last, but not least, Tammy Angle of TwiceAsNiceBaby featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her bright and sunny treasury, Orange You Pretty!  As a farm girl who much preferred driving tractor to doing household chores, this adorable pink tractor baby girl's shirt made me smile.

Well, I need to sign off and get to church.  Then I'm off to the tax office for a busy, busy afternoon.  T minus TWO DAYS and counting until the end of tax season!!

Thank you, as always, for visiting my blog.  Wishing you a great week!
