Treasury Tuesday: Autumn September 20, 2011

Filed under: Treasury Tuesday — Alison @ 10:24 am

I enjoyed this week’s Treasury Tuesday theme – it was an easy one which helped as there are a ton of autumn inspired items on etsy, but I also like autumn as a theme. I love the colours and there are so many cute motifs like owls and leaves that can be used. Go to Abby’s blog for more autumn inspired treasuries.

Treasury Tuesday: Local to me August 30, 2011

Filed under: Treasury Tuesday — Alison @ 12:21 pm

I didn’t even know you could choose the “shop local” button on etsy until Abby suggested this theme so that was interesting in itself, and it was nice to see that there are plenty of sellers in Bath. I set myself the extra challenge of only choosing one item from each seller, but some shops made this difficult, especially this one and this one.

Treasury Tuesday: Decorate a room August 23, 2011

Filed under: Treasury Tuesday — Alison @ 1:56 pm

This week’s theme was “redecorate any room in your home”. I didn’t have a particular room in mind when I selected these items, just picked things I liked that I thought would go together. I seem to have come up with a kind of shabby chic/country cottage feel with a bit of turquoise thrown in there. I like the London cushion because it reminds me of where I used to live, and I like the kimono cushion just because I think it’s a great idea because so many kimono are really beautiful.

Treasury Tuesday… on a Friday August 19, 2011

Filed under: Treasury Tuesday — Alison @ 8:41 am

What with moving house and everything I missed Treasury Tuesday this week but I had already created my blue themed treasury (I was that excited by the whole idea!) so I thought I might as well post it anyway. See little red buttons for more.

Treasury Tuesday August 9, 2011

Tags: , , ,

I came across this idea on a blog I’ve been reading for a while called little red buttons. Etsy is a site where you can buy and sell handmade items (I tried to sell some of my stuff on the UK version, folksy, a while back but it didn’t really work out for me). It’s fun to browse through and look at all the pretty things other people have made and they have this great function where you can create a “treasury”, a list of 16 items that you like.

Abby on little red buttons came up with the idea of posting a theme and getting all her readers to create a treasury around that theme. This week’s is wood and here is my treasury. I don’t know why there’s a big gap before the pictures, have tried to figure it out and failed. You will just have to scroll I guess! (Later note – I figured it out!)
