Oh my, the list keeps growing!

I'm talking about my treasury lists, they have grown so much I can hardly keep up listing them all out for you .... so I will have to take a short cut for these by not spelling out each item of mine that has been treasured. I do want to thank the Curators of all these wonderful treasuries for picking items from my shop. To make sure they get a share of the attention please click on the name of the shop where it states "Picked by ....." that's the shop of the person who created the treasury and deserves to be looked at as well.

Here is more on Abby's story written by her mom Bonnie: "We are a displaced family that lives with a neighbor. We have no home or vehicle of our own. Abby’s care for her autism, speech and OCD are not covered under her insurance policy. Medicaid has denied her as well stating I should obtain services for her conditions through the public school system. Since her diagnosis at the age of 2 1/2 years until now at the age of 12, her cost of care has been my sole responsibility. I do not have any credit cards so I cannot charge her care. Lately, we have been selling Abby’s original artwork on Etsy (AidforAbby). I cannot work outside of the home due to a disability for which I receive a small amount of money each month. It's not easy, I will tell you that. I have the same hopes, dreams and plans for her as I do my other children. I’m hoping to raise funds first and foremost for Abby’s continued medical treatments. The material possessions such as a home, car, etc. can be replaced as they are tangible items. The opportunity for Abby to become as independent as possible in life...priceless!"

Classy felines!


You know my dad passed away only a couple of months ago and while we were keeping my mom company during that time a cat had started to show up at her house. To make a long story short ... the cat ended up having a litter of kittens, four of them so my mom has now become a cat lady. We all know how silly kittens can be when they start playing around, chasing everything that moves, tackling their little brothers and sisters including mom, etc. Well they certainly have brought happiness into my mom's live. God took my dad and gave this cat family a chance by making my mom's life without my dad a little bit of sunshine. I love to hear her talk about all the silly things her little cat family has been up to. They keep her busy, feeding, cleaning their beds, etc. but most of all they make her smile again. So, in honor of the entire kitten caboodle I made this treasury. You see my mom is a very classy lady and everything in this treasury certainly made me think of her. Enjoy!



p.s. I'm including a photo of our cat, Azriel who we adopted while living in Australia. She traveled with us back to the US. Funny thing is that she's always been an indoor kitty so it makes me wonder ... does she have a clue that she's been living in a different country?

Manly gifts

Sometimes it's hard to come up with picking a gift for those special guys in our lives so I figured I'd find something on Etsy to make him happy. Found all kinds of cool stuff so happy shopping everybody!
