I was Featured in an Etsy Treasury

Someone used one of my listings in an Etsy Treasury today.  It was fun to see my photograph being promoted.  

So, I decided to try my hand at making an Etsy Treasury.  It was lots of fun searching for things I liked.  It was so much fun that when I finished one, I went on to make two more.  Here are the three Treasuries I came up with.  The title of each is a link that will take you to the actual treasury and from there you can check out the individual products if you are interested.

In the Kitchen
(this was my first one, and my favorite!)
All in the Family
Livin' the Lake Life
I made a fourth one late last night...

Seeing Spots in the Kitchen

I have to say this is rather addicting.  Go to Etsy and make your own treasury of things you love.  I'd love to see what you come up with. 

So which one is your favorite?

Imagine the Possibilities...

I shared with you all the Christmas presents I made for friends and family this past year using photographs I took of old building and other city scenes in our downtown.

Now I have made some individual wooden block letters...
These can be stood on a shelf, put above a door frame, used as a paperweight on your desk, hung on a wall, used as place cards at a special dinner, use them as kids blocks (teaching the various letters of the alphabet) - imagine the possibilities - they're endless.

I have them available in my Etsy Shop

They are all special orders, and you can customizine them however you like.  Thick or thin wood block - no problem.  Want a special color - no problem.  Want one for each letter of the alphabet - no problem.  Want a smooth finish as opposed to a distressed finish - no problem.  Just tell me what you want, and I will make them for you!

With the upcoming "wedding season" keep these individual blocks or custom name plaques in mind for gifts for the special couple!

I am the thrift store queen.  I love scouring all my favorite stores and garage sales and finding a diamond in the rough or forgotten treasure that others have cast away.  

That being said, I have accumulated a lot of "stuff" - all of which were great bargains but a lot of them are now just taking up space.
But I am trying to reduce the clutter in my house and part with things that I don't want, or need any longer. 

So I have been listing some of my vintage treasures in  my Etsy Store.  Truth be told, I have also purchased a few solely for listing on my site!

If you are looking for something in particular, send me an email with a description of it (pictures are helpful too) and I will see if I can find it for you!

These and many more treasures can all be found on my Etsy Store - please stop by and take a look!
