Treasury Thanks

Happy Spring!

Each week I devote my Sunday post to extend a THANK YOU to the curators of Etsy treasuries who featured items from my Etsy shops, Aunt Pheba's Vintage or Pasque Flower Creations, over the past week.  Spring is in the air, and this week's treasuries mostly centered around Spring-y themes. Enjoy!

Phyllis from RosyDaysScarves featured my pink and red hearts baby bib in her treasury, Spring Pinks...  This pink crepe silk scarf is one of the gorgeous scarves you will find in Phyllis's shop.

Natasha of NatashaArtDolls featured my green chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Green Spring Ornaments .  I absolutely love this boho art doll from Natasha's shop!  It reminds me of my quilt teacher and local quilt shop owner, Roxann O'Hare of The Cosmic Cow. 

Linda Pruitt of PruittSupply created a sunny treasury, with hints of sunny yellow in every listing -- BBA Sunshine.  Linda is a teammate on the Blogging Business Artisans Team.  This yellow mix of handmade yo-yos is one of the unique sewing supplies you will find in Linda's shop.

Dana Facinelli Whalen of CreativeEarthJeweler featured my rainbow chevron key fobs in her treasury, No Grey Skies Here .  This tie dye agate necklace is one of the upscale boho jewelry pieces you will find in Dana's delightful shop.  And, of course, I LOVE the colors!!

Pauline Clarke of polsknitsnstuff featured my azalea oven mitt in her treasury, Thank You.  Wouldn't this pink knitted bunny toy be cute nestled in an Easter basket?

Duni of PeriDotByDuni featured my pastel pink floral oven mitt in her treasury, Shades of Pink
This cottage chic laundry bag is one of pretty pastel items you will find in Duni's shop.

Natasha of NatashaArtDolls featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Fresh Finds .
I love this redheaded cloth doll - complete with freckles - from Natasha's shop.  It reminds me of my daughter, Allison, who has always hated her freckles.  Her grandma gave her a tiny wooden sign that said, "A face without freckles is like a sky without stars." 

Kelsey Wiley of WileyAtHeart featured my pink chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Shades of Pink .
This long turquoise necklace is one of my favorites from Kelsey's shop -- and I'm seeing a lot of aqua and turquoise lately.

Susan McAnany of McAnany featured my elephants on green baby bib in her treasury, Hilly Billy Goes Green for St. Patrick's Day .  This treasury was a TEMPT Team Motivation Challenge treasury.  (TEMPT stands for Terrific Etsy Members Practicing Teamwork.)  The Motivation challenge picks one item from a team member's shop, and invites team members to create a treasury incorporating that item.  This week, the challenge item was a wood carving by MADellingerCarving.

But I digress... The item I'm featuring from McAnany is this sunset glow landscape photo, which reminds me of the green, green grass of my girlhood home in Lake County, South Dakota.  I've driven and biked many dirt roads -- parallel ruts, my Uncle Bob called them.

Kim Cole of BeachDaisyJewelry featured my bears in the woods baby bib in her motivation treasury, Into the Woods.  I love the beachy colors in this beautiful necklace from Kim's shop. 

Natasha of NatashaArtDolls featured my yellow chevron oven mitt in her treasury, Spring Holidays.  It's Spring Break at UNL next week.  Yay!  Here's another adorable freckle-faced doll from Natasha's shop.  This one reminds me of Pippi Longstocking, one of Allison's favorite fictional characters as a child.

MaxUniquities featured my gray and tan industrial look pillow cover in his guy-friendly treasury, Mix by MAX Man Stuff - TEMPT Team Treasury .  Max repurposed an old treadle sewing machine base to create this unique and useful industrial table -- perfect for a craft room  Just sayin'. 

Sandy Rowley of MarketingShopSales featured one of my two beautiful coral and cream Acoma pueblo pottery pieces from Aunt Pheba's Vintage in her treasury, Pueblo Pottery.  This treasury was brimming with beautiful  pottery pieces, sure to provide a stunning accent piece to a Southwestern d├ęcor. 

Sandy has authored several e-books designed to help online sellers, which she markets as downloads in her shop.  This title caught my eye -- Ninja Etsy Marketing.  Couldn't we all use a little help with SEO (search engine optimization)?

Laura DeCamp of DeCampStudios featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Beautiful Etsy Gifts.  Mother's Day and bridal showers are coming up!  Laura specializes in paper wall art. I love this adorable, colorful jungle print wall border - perfect for a nursery or child's room.

Liz of LittleEmptyNest featured my brown chevron oven mitt in her motivation treasury, A Day with Bubba -- By Land and Sea!  Liz has recently added several beautifully-crafted 1/12 miniature doll quilts, pillows and afghans to her shop.  (Those are some teeny tiny quilt blocks!!)  This is one of my favorites. 

Valerie of NandysNook featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Spring Frolic!  These crochet mini gift baskets would be perfect for Easter or May Day -- or for party favors. 

Raena of LovelyKnotsBoutique featured my red floral oven mitt in her treasury, Red by Tempt.  I just couldn't resist sharing these adorable crochet bunnies!   

Kathy Read of DixieVintageShoppe also featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Inspired by Nature .  Kathy has some truly unique vintage jewelry pieces in her shop, including these white enamel teardrop clip earrings

Cassie of CassieVision featured my diner oven mitt in her trip down historic Route 66.  Cassie's shop is a mix of unique jewelry, her mother's intricate beadwork, and stunning photography.  Today, I chose to feature this Pacific Northwest stream photo.  As some of you know, I would love to retire to a tiny house by a babbling brook -- but hopefully in the Northeast, closer to some of my kids and grandkids.  There's something so soothing about the sound of a water dancing over rocks.

Kellee and Dorian Thomas of MoreTheBuckles featured my tigers on purple baby bib in their treasury, All About Spring.  This vintage men's leather money belt would be a great gift for a dad or grad. 

Warm up your coffee or tea --- there's MORE!

Patsy Bechtold of PatsysPressedFlowers also featured my tigers on purple baby bib in her treasury, Grab Your Joe and Let's Go TEMPT Team! This lovely pressed flowers forget-me-not bookmark would be a lovely gift, sure to become a keepsake.  (And I love her listing photo.)

Mike Kraus of MikeKrausArt featured my daisies on blue oven mitt in his treasury, Saturday Salute.  This lavender farm in Provence artist's trading card would add a tiny bit of color to a workspace.  I can almost smell the lavender!  I plan to make some lavender sachets for next craft fair season.

Kellee and Dorian Thomas of MoreTheBuckles featured my pink roses oven mitt in their treasury, Blast Off Thank You.   If you love vintage, you MUST browse this shop!  Here is a lovely carnival glass serving dish.  My Grandma Larson would have loved this!  It "matches" her pink carnation china. 

Rossiter Lisa of PNLJewelryDesigns featured my spit happens bib in her treasury, Today's Picks .
Lisa has this 5-pack crystal earrings set on sale.  It's not too early to start stocking up on stocking stuffers!  I started my 2016 gift list yesterday, when I purchased a book for my SIL. 

Barbara Gross of benjaminajewelry featured my pink and red folk art baby bib in her treasury, The Child in All of Us.  This is a BEAUTIFUL treasury in reds and pinks.  Barbara crafts original contemporary jewelry.  I just love these colorful long leaf aluminum dangle earrings!!

Kathy and Wayne of Rocks2Gems2Wire featured my baby elephants on green bib in their blue and green themed treasury, Bluegrass! TEMPTing Music for the Soul!  This unique wire-wrapped petrified wood necklace is one of the lovely pieces you will find in their shop. 

And last, but certainly not least, Rossiter Lisa of PNLJewelryDesigns featured my spit happens bib in her treasury, TEMPT Team Treasury.  I love the simple elegance of this opal pendant.  Is it modern, or is it art deco?  No matter.  It's beautiful!  (Lovely photo staging, too.)

So there you have it!  Another week of wonderful treasuries.  Team spirit is alive and well. 

Happy Spring!
