Treasury Tuesday

Treasured Tuesday is a treat because I get to visit the shops of some generous Etsians who have included me in one of their treasuries recently. I always learn interesting things from their profiles, and find something special to feature.

Gilliauna from her shop by the same name, strives to add a bit of extra color to your life and make each of your days a little brighter with a variety of colorful, quality pieces. She offers unique handmade artisan jewelry rich in color and quality like the frosted earrings pictured.

Her treasury is a beautiful study in blue.

Diane Gilliam from DishClothsGalore  started making dishcloths after an encounter with two lovely grandmotherly types in the yarn aisle at Woolworths. She was young and buying baby yarn, when one of the grandmothers asked, "Do you ever make those old-timey dishrags? They work up real fast, you just add on stitch on each end till they're big as you want, then cast off. Lots of people like them, they're good for scrubbing." She has been making them ever since.   Here is the cozy treasury she curated.

Lynn from MidnightCoiler features birdhouses, pottery, beads, coiled baskets, toothpick cases and gourds. working with gathered and grown materials from nature. Her specialties are carving gourds (which she grows herself) by hand and coiled and twined basketry.  I love the french bread basket shown here. 

And this is the pretty peach treasury she made.

Erin Moss from MoonbirdSisters offers a variety of vintage items, including the cross stitch pictured. And here is the black and white treasury she curated.

Thank you to all the featured treasury makers.
