belated Treasury Thanks... EFA MEMBERS part 1

Life Happens, right ?
and in my case... it really 'happened' this spring !

so... i'm a 'little' behind with my treasury thanks...
not the end of the world, right ? lol


Nest Babies was May's theme for EFA's Monthly Challenge. I entered Nimue's fur keeper / memory box as a custom listing. I was pleased with the presentation of the product and this month when i did a redo on all my Silk Tapestry Box listings- I got even happier with the content.

LolaLynn is EFA's leader in the Challenge realm... I'd like to thank her for all that she does to help animals and to help team members promote their work on our Challenge Blog.

Lately, Lynn has been working on a series of turtle paintings to benefit the gulf turtles & the cleanup of the tragic oil spill. This particular piece above caught my attention.


Summer Dreams was a treasury put together from EFA membership items. JohnnieBelinda chose one of my tagua daisy necklaces to feature. Thanks so much :)

Johnniebelinda is a very talented artist working in a variety of mediums including some very unique & unusual techniques.

Here is one of her beautiful landscapes which is an original pastel. Do check out her store... many of her items are currently on sale !


Michele, aka mvegan5, is EFA's team leader who works tirelessly to keep our team together.

"EFA Artists Helping Animals is a group of more than 500 independent artists, independent craftspeople, independent vintage suppliers, and independent art and craft suppliers that combine their efforts to provide charitable relief to animals. Each month an animal charity is chosen from by one or more EFA members to be the EFA Charity of the Month"

In April, when the above treasury was created, our charity of the month was an animal ambulance service in Alphen, Holland. Michele chose to feature one of my vintage button lots of 25 which profit benefits our COTM (charity of the month) program. Thanks Michele !

This is one of my all time favorite images that Michele has created ! She calls it Sacred Spirit Animals and she used buttons on the original painting. Like all her work, she makes her images available in greeting card format.


Another treasury created for the same COTM and this time, Michele chose to feature one of my Czech glass buttons... a beautiful frosted blue toned button with a gorgeous carved sunflower design. Thanks so much ! Did you know that blue is one of Michele's favorite colors ?!

Another delightful image by mvegan5... This one is called Summer Animals... its a perfect companion piece to Sacred Spirit Animals, don't you think ?

Tune in for part 2 of 'belated Treasury Thanks' soon !
