My Favorite Treasury ... Ever! Patination

Vintage Tin and a Dozen Wooden Spools by SimplySuzula
During more than three years as an Etsy seller, I've seen hundreds, maybe thousands, of absolutely gorgeous treasuries curated by other Etsians.

When I say that SimplySuzula's "Patination" is my all time favorite treasury, what I mean is that this one has lifted me right out of my chair and sent me soaring above the tree tops. (And I'd say this even if Suzula hadn't so kindly honored me with inclusion in her treasury.)

I could go on and on praising this treasury, as well as the wonderful Etsian who so skillfully put it together, but it doesn't need words from me. It speaks for itself.

  1. What a lovely surprise, Mollie!! I'm honored to have one of my treasuries featured in your blog. And SO much flattery... Thanx!!!

  2. If I had a penny for every copper filled treasury made by SimplySuzula - I'd be rich! LOL She loves her some patina! She's the best!

  3. It's exquisite. I know first hand how much time and effort goes into making treasuries, and this one is a jewel--carefully crafted, thought-out. You look so good here, Mollie!
