Treasuries Part 2

I think this week is going to be a wonderful week. For the first time, not only did I get to create a treasury but have my Secret Garden necklace be featured in a treasury by ChYMieRa. She has made her treasury Skeleton Key themed. It is also a BNR, so if you purchase one of the items shown, she will replace the item you buy in the treasury with one from your shop! Very cool, right?

The Elusive Treasury

I finally got a treasury! My theme was birds. I tried to choose sellers I had not ever seen on the front page of Etsy before. It drives me crazy when I see the same sellers over and over again. Don't get me wrong, I am happy they are getting some exposure, but I think that Etsy should spread the love around. It feels as though there are some sellers that someone at Etsy must really like. But enough about that.

It's funny: I absolutely love representations of birds in art, yet I'm not incredibly fond of the real thing. Sure they are beautiful creatures, but I wouldn't like to have one as a pet.Something about all that chirping when you're trying to sleep makes them a less than ideal pet to me. I feel that birds are best appreciated through art or in the wild. So go and check out my treasury when you get a chance! :)

Gorgeous Goldenrod. My favorite color :)

I thought I would share some finds on etsy in goldenrod yellow/orange. (So perfect for fall!) I just feel warm and happy whenever I see this color :) I tried to choose items with an interesting texture too.

Here are some great earrings by laceramiste. What a lovely crackle texture to the beads.

I love this wee fox plushie by sleepyking!! Such a great contrast of fabrics!

I absolutely adore this little hat by pixiebell! Those little buttons are a gorgeous accent!

Hooray for fall shopping!

An Overdue Update

I haven't blogged in quite a while; the day job and life in general have been keeping me away from the computer. But fear not, I have returned with some fun new items to list on Etsy! I am still working through the massive assortment of estate jewelry I purchased, and have excavated some excellent little finds. I found this adorable little filigree goldtone (possibly gold plated) cab setting. I placed this hand painted peach Javanese flower cab into it, and it looks great! I have several other necklaces to list tonight, definitely stop by my shop and check them out!

On a different note, I am looking for some bright red and beige sailcloth-esque fabric to make some rockin' pillows to go on my couch. My boyfriend and I have recently painted the walls this excellent shade of green (the paint company calls it guacamole). The couches are a light tan, and I reupholstered our table chairs with bright red canvas. For the couch pillows, I am envisioning a repeating zigzag pattern, or something else equally exciting. If you make pillows, sell fabric, or know where I could find something like this, let me know!
