Treasury Thanks - The Year Is Half Over

The year is half over.  How did THAT happen?

This week brought a flurry of activity in Etsy treasuries.  I'd like to take this opportunity to extend a big
THANK YOU to the curators who featured items from my Etsy shops, Pasque Flower Creations and Aunt Pheba's Vintage, over the past week.

Sarah Beth from MagnoliaSurprise featured my patriotic bunting in her treasury, Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue.   What would a 4th of July picnic be without watermelon?  This cute watermelon  potholder, dish cloth and magnet set is a sample of the wonderful crochet items to be found at Magnolia Surprise.

Deidre Wicks of WaterInMyPaint featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her treasury, My Compliments. I know all my animal lover friends will  "ooh and aaawww" over these watercolor pets from Deidre's shop:

Natalie from JewelryEveryday featured my yellow chevron baby bib in her bright and sunny treasury, Beautiful Bold Yellow and Orange.   I went to the opposite side of the color wheel to find these gorgeous turquoise and jade earrings from JewelryEveryday.  Aren't they fabulous?!

Vicky Barone of VickyBaroneDesigns featured one of my boutique baby bibs in her treasury, Baby Brights. I just had to share this wonderful Hold Your Horses art print from Vicky's shop:

Ozden of ReddApple featured my poppies on teal oven mitts in her Hot Summer treasury.  I just loved this dainty crochet necklace from ReddApple:

Deb Baroff of Storybeader featured my turquoise and black jungle baby bib in her treasury, Turquoise and Black, A Lovely Combination.   This blue handmade doodle book is also a lovely combination of form and function.

SarahLyall of SarahLyallHome featured my gray chevron oven mitt in her thoroughly modern treasury, Grey and White Kitchen.  Sarah's shop has home dec pillows and pillowcovers as well as vintage finds.  These outdoor pillows in trendy coral and gray would add a pop of color to your patio or deck.

Justyna Ra of JustynaRaPhotography featured my green organic cotton napkins in her treasury, Tuesday's Gone.  Justyna offers her photos, like this hauntingly beautiful photo of birds, as instant digital downloads:

Although the photo is amazingly beautiful, I have to admit it brought back memories of Alfred Hitchcock's movie, The Birds.

Justyna also has a second shop on Etsy, OczkOhandmade,  which features crocheted jewelry and collars.  I just love these dainty lilac earrings.

Trina Prenzi of TrinasClayCreations featured my patriotic bunting in her treasury, Red, White and Blue.   In keeping with the patriotic spirit, I decided to feature this polymer clay soldier from Trina's shop:

Egretta Garzetta of EgrettaGarzetta featured my green chevron oven mitt in her beautiful treasury, Summer Meadow.   Egretta makes handmade undergarments like these lovely soft turquoise briefs:

Jesse of JHhandmade featured my pink floral oven mitt in her treasury, Pretty in Pink.  Speaking of pretty and pink, how about these beautiful pink crystal earrings!

Andreia & Vitor of 4HappyChildren featured my white glass covered dish from my Aunt Pheba's Vintage shop in the treasury, What Is the Color?   Perhaps one of their four happy children inspired these precious little pink baby shoes.  (I couldn't help but think of my blogging buddy, Sher, when I saw these!)

Anja Brummer-Para of kleinedromen (The Netherlands) featured my rainbow chevron oven mitt in her bright and cheery treasury, Colors: Candy.   This beautiful bright blue and green crocheted baby afghan would be a wonderful baby gift.

Judy from JNOriginals featured my yellow chevron oven mitt in a beautiful treasury, A Breath of Summer, featuring shades of yellow and aqua with a hint of pink.  This cute turquoise felted bowl would be a pretty yet practical accent for a crafting studio.

Again, THANK YOU to all the curators for their wonderful treasuries.  Please take a minute to visit their shops and show some Etsy love.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

  5. Congratulations on the treasuries. Great features! I really love seeing that green and blue together on that afghan. I think I just found a new favorite color combination!
