Treasury Tuesday

Today I am featuring several treasuries I am honored to have been included in recently.

The first is by Kim Lapacek, in celebration of her birthday!  Kim shares her birthday with the day taxes are due - April 15th.  I would much rather celebrate her birthday than taxes!

Check out these summer dresses worn by two of Kim's adorable daughters.  These pretty frocks are available in her Persimon Dreams shop.

I think these John Deere tractor potholders are super cute!

I especially admire the needle cases Ellen carries in her shop.  The perfect accessory for a newbie knitter such as myself.

Thanks for including my shop in your treasuries ladies!


  1. Thanks so much for the feature! Ironically my father also worked for the IRS :) I always joke that the final straw in the decision to adopt me or not - I was the perfect fit :)

  2. Thanks for the feature! I loved all of these treasuries. I am always inspired to see the beautiful things that people create :)
