Birthday Treasuries

As we grow older, it becomes important to appreciate the little things in life. It keeps us young, and keeps us sane. To celebrate my birthday today, I ordered pizza and made a treasury. Perhaps it says something about where my focus is these days, but it was a real treat to find that the treasury clock was almost at zero today, and I was able to create a collection of my favorite things.

Although the weather has been very warm for January, it is awfully gloomy and gray. I don’t mind staying in doors in bad weather, but it does put a hold on photography when there isn’t any good sunlight. So I filled my treasury with warm, green things to remind myself that spring is just around the corner.

Dreaming of Spring Treasury

As an extra birthday treat, I was also featured in two amazing treasuries this week.

You Never Bring Me Flowers Anymore is another great collection that can take our minds off of the weeks of winter ahead. Each of these beaded flowers was created by a member of the Etsy BeadWeavers team. Team member kraftymax did an amazing job putting this garden together.

You Never Bring Me Flowers Treasury

Why Not is one of my favorite treasuries to date. At first glance, it looks like a random collection of favorites. But upon closer inspection, you can see a theme of shapes and colors. Its slinky, and blue, and beautiful! This treasury was assembled by SFBeads.

Happy Birthday to all Capricorns out there!
