It's not the end of the month yet but it's getting close. It was September 30 where I broke my ankle. And here I am in a wheelchair, just starting to get mobile again. I haven't spent too much time on Etsy, but wanted to give thanks to all my teammates who were kind enough to include me in their treasuries.
On Sept 30th, Athena (LalalitaBodyCo) put together "Good Things Come in Small Packages." What a sweet title, and such a pretty treasury. She included my green and white paper beads here since beads come in small packages. All of her skin lotions and such fit perfectly into this category. I chose her Autumn Sugar Scrub to match up with her treasury. "Sweet Pumpkin Pie" - sounds delicious, eh?
Here's another brilliantly named treasury by Margaret (SplendidLittleStars): "When the Frost is on the Punkin." She included one of my Art Journal, or what I used to call junk journals, here. Most of Margaret tie dyes are pastels, but I thought this sumptuous silk velvet scrunchie had a lot of autumn colors in it too.
Starting the second week of October, Kathy (tapestry316) put together a fall treasury, again using my Art Journal. She calls it “Crisp cool mornings and crunchy leaves falling.” Our leaves are not falling yet, but the weather has certainly changed, and I’m enjoying the cool breezes all day. I really enjoy Kathy’s paintings of all the animals around her house. “Cat and horse saying good morning” is a perfect example.
The next treasury I found myself in was called “Ready or Not, Fall is Here!” by Sharla (BeadedTail). I’m ready for it! I just hope it doesn’t turn cold and wet because I’ll be very weary of ice for some time! In this group, Sharla picked some of my Halloween colored paper beads, perfect for the jeweler. I looked though her jewelry and found these beautiful Fall Sunset Lampwork Glass earrings. Wow - I love lampwork!
Let me close out this round of treasuries with LeAnn's (pasqueflower) Autumn Hues. This is a beautifully toned collection of oranges and yellows, and includes my painted borders art journal. If you go visit my shop, click on the third image to find out more about what I did with the borders of this journal! LeAnn makes functional fabric creations - I just love the colors and pattern of these Poppies Oven Mitts. Aren’t they beautiful?!
