Treasury Tuesday

Welcome to Treasury Tuesday. I am pleased to introduce five interesting curators, as well as show the lovely treasuries they have made.

Carol Lade from CarolMade Natural Bracelets has loved bracelets ever since traveling through Europe in the 1970's by bike. She says that her bracelets are comfortable, not tight or heavy, and come in a variety of color combinations. Carol has two children, three grandchildren, and has been married to her husband for 42 years.

Joan Berg from SwingCoat offers custom-made and ready to buy one-of-kind Swing Coast with coordinating lining in her Etsy shop.

She also curated a treasury full of beautiful fabric for fabricoholics (like me).

Mary Carrellas of EmptyNestEgg  started beading at age 13 when she was bedridden with arthritis for 4 months. Her knees got better, but her addiction to beading continued.  She has been beading for over 40 years now. After homeschooling her two children and sending them off to college, she opened her Etsy shop. 

The Beach Themed Wall Hanging Hoop is an example of her work.

Karen of KarenGriskaQuilts says that quiltmaking has been her passion since she was 13 years old. After a career as an investment portfolio manager and raising her two sons, she now enjoy creating quilts full time. She also enjoy the challenge of upcycling, and wrote the book "Quilts from the Selvage Edge."  Her shop carries a wonderful assortment of unique pincushions, as well as quilts, and her own patterns.

The lovely plum colored treasury below, as well as the adorable crocheted beanie at right, is made by Stephanie Ann of StephanAnn

Stephanie specializes in children's and teen crocheted items, and loves to make different styles in bright and pretty color combinations. Her goal is to make these stylish items both affordable and fashionable.

Thank you so much ladies, for including me in your treasuries.
