Treasury Thanks

I would like 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, over the past week.  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in this week's treasuries!  Check the Christmas Countdown widget at the bottom of the blog to see how many days, hours and minutes until Christmas.  Yikes!

Veronica Ogden of PaddyWhackKnickKnack  featured my brown chevron oven mitt in her Christmas wish list treasury, This List Is for Me.   I LOVE that shop name -- but now I have that children's song running through my head -- "with a knick knack paddy whack give a dog a bone, this old man came rolling home"!

This beautiful vintage red seashell bowl would be a truly unique gift, or a beautiful Thanksgiving or holiday home accent piece.

Fabrics & Colors, an Etsy buyer, featured my green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Holiday Gifts.  Thank you!!

Susan Smith of hinterlandquilts featured my patriotic bunting in her treasury, Thanks for Our Veterans.  This colorful baby blanket with ultra-soft red minky backing is just one of the cozy handmade quilts in Susan's shop:

Svitlana of ChaChaChaaaa   (Ukraine) featured my red and white snowflake holiday oven mitt in her treasury, Red and White.  I love Svitlana's unique handmade fabric buttons -- and they are now 50% off!  Such a deal!  

Holly from IntentionalGlass featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her beautiful treasury, Frozen.  This adorable miniature glass snowman from Holly's shop is just one of her many wonderful glass creations:

Jean Schroeder featured my leaves on periwinkle oven mitts in her treasury, Gifts to Love to Give.  These bright sunny Fall snack rugs would be perfect for catching the grandlittles' cookie crumbs over the Thanksgiving holidays -- or use as a mug rug for a cup of hot cocoa (with marshmallows, please). 

KarynRD of RaeKaryCaps  featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Fantasy Baking.  These beautiful bottlecap magnets would make a lovely hostess gift this Thanksgiving, or a cute little gift for a Canadian friend.

Sarah Leonard of ACatlikeCuriosity featured my prairie sunbonnet in her treasury, Timeless Notions. I think Sarah's soar pendant necklace has timeless charm.

Reyes of ReyesRobledo featured my leaves on teal fabric-covered journal in her budget-friendly and eco-friendly treasury, Less Than 20 Green Gifts.  These beautiful blue dainty Josephine Bonaparte Czech glass earrings would be a beautiful gift.

Samantha Zugec of LifeInCroatia  (gorgeous photography!) featured my aqua chevron oven mitt in her beautiful treasury, Pale Blue in the Kitchen.  I think you'll agree Samantha's flower photography is just simply stunning.

Edi Royer of memoriesforlifesb featured my red and green chevron oven mitt in her holiday gift guide treasury, Stocking Stuffers Gift Guide - $20 and Under.  These wooden feather earrings are a budget-friendly gift.  I bought a pair for my daughter, and she LOVES them!

Deb Baroff of storybeader featured my prairie sunbonnet in her treasury, Gift Ideas for Kids.  Deb's maroon covered art journal would be a perfect gift for a special teen or tween on your holiday list.

Thanks, again, to all the curators for this week's features.

This is my 498th blog post.  When I hit 500, I will be taking a semi-sabbatical from blogging and the BBA Team through the holiday rush and possibly extending into tax season.  

The creative well has run dry, and with so many competing demands for my time, something has to give.  I admire all my teammates who seem to be able to juggle all the competing demands.  My hat is off to you.  I will continue my weekly Treasury Thanks posts, and perhaps a few other posts.  And I will pop in to visit some of my favorite blogs occasionally -- but not compulsively.  

Special thanks to my cyber-friends from the BBA Team for their support and encouragement over the past several months.  I will miss you.
