The rain has stopped, the sun is shining, but I've been down with the flu for the past three days.
Hoping to rally today.
It was a wonderful week for treasuries. Most of the themes were celebrations of summer, and many reflected a longing to be at the beach. I could certainly relate to those!! There is something about lakes, oceans, and babbling brooks that seems to calm my Soul.
Kim Cole of BeachDaisyJewelry featured my pencil shaped pencil pouches in her colorful treasury, Time to Play . This crocheted circle headband in blue would be a pretty way to keep hair under control on a breezy summer day.
Greta Guizzardi of IlGiardinolncantado featured my lavender floral oven mitt in her treasury, Violet . Her fairy wings bookmark reminded me of my granddaughter in New Hampshire who loves fairies and especially fairy houses.

Today, I chose to feature this pretty purple kumihimo bracelet.
