Treasures, Treasuries, and Thoughts

I swore I would never do a blog! So much for swearing. I didn't think that I would have much to say or share. I was wrong! I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, loyal friends, sharing colleagues, and the support from so many that I will never run out of topics to write about.

I have opened an on-line store at a place called Etsy (rhymes with Betsy). The items on the left are available for purchase there. These will change from week to week to show you my latest creations. The link to the store is in the upper left corner of this page.

I also have items for sale listed on Art Fire. The link to my Art Fire Studio is

I hope you will visit this blog, my Flickr page ( and my Etsy and/or Art Fire stores often. (

So come along on my Trail of Treasures! It will be a Spirit Journey for me and I invite you to join me on the trip.

Three Treasuries This Week!

The first picture is from a Treasury prepared by Nonnie. She prepared this lovely floral tribute and included my Morning Glory Earrings. They are the first item in the third row. Nonnie is a fellow Bbest team member. She is a stained glass artist from Danville, PA. Her wonderful work includes both large and small pieces of stained glass art. I am sure I have mentioned her business card holders in other blogs. Her lamps are breathtakingly beautiful. You will want to check her work at:
The center picture is a Treasury of favorite things by Noah's Ark Collection. She was nice enough to include my Falling Rain Hair Barrette in her recent treasury. It is the center item in the second row. She lives in sunny California. Her store is full of all things animal...sterling silver charms, hand carved, jewelry. Her charms are very unique...not to be found in other locations. The variety is great and if you make jewelry and love animals, you will want to check out her items. You can do this at:
My Native American Picasso Necklace was featured in this Etsy Treasury. It is the center item on the bottom row. This treasury was prepared by my Bbest Boomer friend, Zuda Gay. Zuda is a wonderful polymer clay artist from Illinois. She does pendants, button, jewelry, ACEO's and many other spectacular items. I especially love her polymer floral pendants! You must visit her store at You will be happy that you did.
Mvto and Wa-do to Noahs Ark, Nonnie, and Zuda Gay for including me in your beautiful Treasuries!
