Tuesday's Treasury List ~ Keeping Wine

'Keeping Wine' by hartleyrowe

I made my first pallet wine rack today. I was so excited about it that I thought I would make a treasury list out of some of the unique wine storage products made by amazingly talented Etsy artisans. I hope you enjoy this list of great creations!

Finally Finished!

I finally finished up some of the projects I was working on.  You got a sneak peak of some of the materials in last week's post here.  You can definitely see the results of my picture taking spree in San Francisco.  For these creations, some of which may end up in my Etsy shop, I've used two of my favorite photographs. One is of the Golden Gate Bridge and the other is of an architectural corbel found on one of the many beautiful old buildings as we walked down California Street.

Tuesday's Treasury List ~ Sandcastles!

'Sandcastles' by hartleyrowe

I love sandcastles and the memories of building them with my children. I thought I would create today's treasury list of creations with a sandcastle theme, made by wonderful Etsy artisans, since it is sandcastle season here in San Diego. Grab you sand pails!

Back to the Creation Station!

We've nicknamed the formal dining room - turned workshop the Creation Station.  I'm not sure who came up with the name, but it's a name that was given to my old scrapbook table in one of our former homes.  It kind of has become the nickname for my work room or work table wherever it may be.  So today, for the first time in a few weeks, I was back at the Creation Station working on several projects.  Some of them are for the house, some to be given as gifts, and some will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.  I don't have any pictures of finished products for you just yet, but I thought I would post a couple of sneak peek photos just to get you guessing.

Katie's Jewelry Holder

My daughter moved into her new apartment this month.  This will be her last college apartment as she is finishing her studies this year.  Whenever our grown children move into a new apartment or home, I try to make something for them.  Here's a picture of a stretched canvas I used to create a piece of wall art that can also be used as a necklace holder.  The "K" is for Katie!

Tuesday's Treasury List ~ Australia!

Tuesday Treasury Lists are back and our stay-cation is now over. I've been away from posting for a couple of weeks following my husband's retirement from the Navy and during our dear friends' visit from Australia. We enjoyed showing them around our wonderful city and the surrounding areas. They left today, so I thought that I'd create today's Tuesday Treasury by choosing art from Australian Etsy artists in celebration of our friends' visit. I hope you enjoy the Treasury!

'Tuesday's Treasury - Australia!' by hartleyrowe

Our dear friends left today to return to their home in Canberra, ACT. In celebration of their visit, I thought I would create today's treasury of treasures from Australian artists showing their beautiful country.
