It turns out I’ve been included in 3, yes THREE, treasurys in the last couple of days! How exciting! 😀
The first is this ‘fabulous’ hot pink treasury by Papertree lane which featured my childs pink, polkadot skirt. Such a cute treasury with some amazing items for the girly girl!
My teal blue apron has also been featured in this treasury by Patty Mora Photo which is just stunning! I always love this colour and there are some truly gorgeous items in this treasury!
And last, but not least, another apron has been featured in this brilliantly fun treasury by Sethayla. This treasury is so bright and cheerful! Everything I want The Penguin Theory to be about!
All these treasuries are just stunning, i’m so happy to have been included in them all! Hopefully I can return the favour, if my work hours will stop getting in the way of my Etsy-ing that is!!
‘Till next time!
Well i’ve been working non stop this week. As I said before, lots of staff have left and so I’ve been given loads of hours. 42 to be exact. Not that I will get paid much for it.
I do really love my job and the people there and being able to interact with customers but i’m finding it harder and harder to want to stay. Reason’s just keep popping up telling me to leave, lack of money being one of them. I’ve decided to have a word with my boss first but I am already scouting around to see what else is out there. I heard admin jobs pay quite well.
But anyway, I finally got round to doing some more crafty related things. I’ve applied for some more craft fairs, updated all my social media (this blog included) and made a new treasury! I’m sure i might have said that the next treasury I posted about would be a Halloween one but I’ve decided to get involved with Craft Britannia’s shop of the week finally, after months of just following silently. So here’s a nice little treasury based on Colour Me Fun’s amazing Crayons! You should seriously check out the shop, it is adorable!
I found these crayons in the shop and immediately fell in love!
For one Lions are my favourite animals, two these are just plain adorable, although I doubt i’d ever dare use them! I think I actually might buy some for my cousin for christmas (along with some other items). Because these are named ‘Jungle Animal Crayons’ I decided to do a jungle themed treasury.
However as I search deeper into the jungle that is the Etsy search, I found that more and more Lions were popping up…Lions happen to be my favourite animal and always have been (closely followed by the penguin and red panda) and I found myself just wanting to pick all the lion items. So I ended up with a Lion themed treasury!
Isn’t this just the cutest neck warmer you’ve ever seen? I wish I was several years younger so that I could wear it. I might just buy it anyway! Who said i’m so old for this adorableness!
I love cute and quirky things, especially on my ears, and these are just amazing. These adorable studs are hand drawn and just make me want to ‘squee’.
Isn’t this just the cutest dress you’ve ever seen? This is the kind of thing I wanted when I was a child (and still do!), the kind of thing I will force any kids I have to wear whether they like it or not. Perfect for halloween, perfect for everyday, just perfect for a Lion Obsessed person like me. I wonder if it can come in a larger size…
This cute cushion is made from organic cotton and can come in a range of colours! I think it would be perfect for a childs room, it would definitely suit my childhood bedroom which was jungle themed before i decided I liked fishes.
I really love the print of of the lion on this cushion, it’s proud stance and fierce glare. Still not sure whether or not i’d prefer it without the hat but then I remember there’s pompoms and I chuckle.
Now this is an item I think I’m actually buying myself for definite. I’ve been looking for a phone case for ages and this one is not only available for the S3 but also the Iphone and the S2 (my phone). My boyfriend says it’s too expensive and that there’s loads of cheap cases out there but I just don’t think they could ever live up to a Lion wearing Aviators.
Don’t you just love the colours of this one! It’s just a big tower of colourful Roars and it looks awesome. I wish I still had the wallpaper from when I was little because I would totally buy this to match! Ok now i’m starting to miss my old wallpaper…
What’s better than a bunch of cute animals? A bunch of cute animals wearing party hats of course! These invitations are just adorable, maybe I need to organise an animal themed party to give myself an excuse to buy these…
Well this painting is just badass. I love the lion and the pop art style. It would be a great focal piece for any room.
Another picture but this one is a little cuter. I love typography and this reminds me of the part in The Lion King where Simba is learning to roar. Cute!
Speaking of The Lion King… It is and has always been my favourite film (although a few more have crept up to join it at the number one spot in recent years) and this poster shows the film off perfectly. I love the use of the sun as an eye, and the pose of the male lion. I just wish there was a Timone and Pumba! Still, if I was allowed things on my wall I think this would be up there.
This little set is so cute with those cute little booties, the animal bib and matching burp cloth. Just adorable!
If my hair wasn’t practically a mane already then I think this would already be in my wardrobe. But how cute is this? I don’t think I should ever be allowed it as I’d probably end up never taking it off.
I love reading and the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is a classic! This shop has other similar brooches from other classic books too and is really worth checking out. I have my eye on the Metamorphosis one as I studied that play for my A Levels and absolutely loved it.
Another brooch but completely different to the last. This cute little fabric lion would look adorable pinned to a childs coat. They come it lots of different colours and patterns too.
That’s all the items I have for you for now. I hope you find them all as adorable as I do!
‘Till next time!
The weather is getting colder now and Autumn is upon us! It’s time to wrap up warm by the fire and be glad you’re not one of those woodland creatures out in the cold. So here’s a few items to celebrate the autumn months and the cute little animals that are frolicking in the forests of england. You can find my treasury with all the items in it here there are also links to all of the items in their titles.
This cute little sun catcher by Lazy Daisy Glass will be perfect for bringing the autumn colours into your room and decorating your windows! A great decoration for this, or any, time of year!
This gorgeous photograph by Shannonpix just shouts of autumn to me. Acorns, rustic wood, greens and browns. I think this would would look amazing above a log fire on a cold night.
Damson Tree Pottery makes some truly wonderful items, some of which I have my eye on for when I actually have some money (and a bigger home). This cute little tile is perfect for welcoming the autumn months into your house with those vibrant colours.
Another item for your home made by VeeDubz. I love the look of trees in winter and these cushion covers catch their intricacies perfectly! I can just picture my self snuggling up on the sofa with these.
This adorable glass sculpture would look amazing on any mantle piece or window sill. The autumn leaves and the running pose really gives the idea of movement to the piece and makes me imagine all the critters in the woods hurriedly foraging for food before winter sets in.
More leaves! And this time they are wearable. I think this cuff would look great with just a simple black dress and some matching accessories. I love the colours, all the detailing, and the fact that it just looks so delicate! Almost like real leaves! It’s the perfect statement piece this autumn.
These bright and colourful decorations are bound to catch the eye of your guests who will just marvel at the details. These come in lots of other designs too so you could even buy a whole forest of them!
I’m sure they’ll be plenty of autumn weddings out there, so why not match the wedding to the season? This adorable cake topper is just perfect for an autumn cake. The bride and groom can be fully customised making this truly yours and then kept as a keepsake to remind you of your special day.
This vintage scarf is just gorgeous. I think it would look great with a nice thick coat. I think it’s something I could imagine both myself AND my grandma wearing! This is definitely a fashionable scarf for all ages.
This abstract print by Caroline Grigg is just gorgeous! The ‘splodgy’ (for lack of a better word) tree effect and then the details of the branches and birds really make this an interesting piece. The colours are just beautiful and make it seem really homely and warm. Again the log fire seems to compliment this item perfectly…
These adorably, simple brooches are perfect for autumn lapels! Personally I think they would look great pinned on a fur (or faux-fur) collar. It’s a simple way to make any outfit just a little cuter.
Who doesn’t love Bears? They look so big and cuddly, as long as you stay away from the claws! This is another print that’s just perfect for a room with a log fire (or maybe I just really want a log fire…) I love the innocent, happy look on the bears face and it’s relaxed way of sitting. It just makes me want to relax myself and watch the world go by.
Another fox brooch for your lapels. Again this one is adorable and again I think It would go well with fur! It’s the perfect way to style up your coat (or what ever else you want to pin it to).
Apparently I can’t get enough of foxes, here’s another foxy item! Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE my novelty hats. In fact when I was younger I had a page on a website completely devoted to my collection of hats! I think the main reason I love autumn is because I get to wear my many many headwarmers. It’s taken everything I have (and my lack of money) to stop me buying this. I honestly don’t need any more hats with ears, but yet I still want them. Someone just please buy this before I do.
Another Item I’ve had my eye on for a while..This absolutely adorable ring. Not only is it a cute little hedgehog, but it has an adorable little crown! It just makes me ‘Squee’ every time I look at it.
The last item is this adorable Coin purse. It’s covered in little critters and is perfect for the young animal lover to carry around their pocket money. It even has a handy ring tab to help keep it safe!
There will be more treasuries coming soon (They’re just so much fun to make!) The next one will be Halloween Themed!
So ’till next time!
Keep working hard!
I made a cute little spring treasury on Etsy and thought i’d share it on here with my reasons for picking each object. 🙂 You can find my treasury here.
I tried to look for pastel colours, flowers, and a bright cheerful feeling, all the things that just shout spring to me! There were so many cute items it was hard to narrow it down, but in the end this is what I came up with:
It’s kind of hard to believe these aren’t real. Who wouldn’t want these to brighten up their living room? They wont die like real flowers and can come in a range of colours to suit your room! Definitely a good choice if you always forget to water or buy new plants like me.
I love how unusual this bracelet is. The branch with the first hint of flower is adorable and reminds me of the trees just starting to blossom.
Want a big bright statement piece that makes winter vanish to memory? Then this is surely the necklace for you. Its bright, fun and cheerful and just makes me smile.
This necklace is cute and fresh, just what you need to chase away the cold british winter. The straw like string adds a touch of the unusual and the flowers add that cute feminine touch. All together a very adorable little necklace.
Spring is a time for new life, eggs are being laid and flowers are blossoming, so why not feel part of it by wearing some ‘eggs’ on your ears? Not only are these adorable, but I think they would go perfectly with the necklace above!
Well we’ve had the eggs so we obviously needed some birds as well! I love the twig and flowers at the top of this mobile and the birds finish it off beautifully. I can just see this in a little girls nursery, but to be honest i’d really want to steal this for myself. It is definitely one to enjoy no matter what your age is.
Want to look like a flowery meadow? Well then this is the necklace for you. Crammed full of cute little flowers this statement necklace is bound to turn heads and make any outfit look fantastic.
This is the kind of dress I can imagine wearing on a warm spring day/evening whilst prancing around a meadow. It’s just stunning. Maybe the weather isn’t quite warm enough for it yet, but it’s getting there. Although I’m not sure if i’d dare wear it out of the house myself for fear of ruining it!
It’s impossible not to think about snowdrops when spring is mentioned and these earrings seem to mimic them beautifully. Bring a touch of classy elegance to your outfit by wearing these, i’d personally wear them with my hair up just to make sure they’re noticed!
I don’t know what to really say about this dress other than just simply ‘Wow’. The delicate lace and pastel colours seem to compliment the freshness of spring and really does make me think of flower fairies dancing in the evening light.
From classic to just plain cute! Everyone loves deers and this necklace is just adorable!
Another animal that reminds me of spring is the little baby ducklings! If I could I’d buy lots of these little figurines and make a line of them that I could imagine were waddling towards a nice little picturesque pond.
Another statement necklace with some bold pink flowers and green beads. A modern, but some how classic, look to really attract the compliments.
Gold, Silver, Diamond. What more does a girl want? This delicate little ring would certainly draw in my attention and leave me completely green in envy! The vein detail on the flower really finishes this piece off and I can imagine I would spend hours tracing them with my eyes.
It may be listed as a wedding Item, but I would wear this despite not even being engaged yet. I love the messy vintage glamour this seems to exude. What better way to feel at one with nature than to be wearing this gorgeous piece.
Another statement necklace for the demure woman in you. A string of pearls with a bunch of flowers, a fresh addition to a smart outfit.
I hope you like these Items as much as I do, I had a lot of fun putting it together.
Till next time!
