Treasury Thanks: Defenders by thedoghouse

Today, I'm delighted to be featuring a very special treasury, Defenders, a collection of products by the EFA Team (Etsy for Animals) which sales will benefit our September Charity of the Month: Defenders of Wildlife.


Curated by our very dear EFA Team member, Jane of thedoghouse, this Treasury is full of beautiful items... see for yourself... visit DEFENDERS on Etsy by clicking HERE !

There are so many favorites to choose from... I particularly love the embroidered pillow case, the storage bowls, and the full moon wolf. Brizel Handcrafts, via my brizel4TheAnimals shop, is proud to have a product featured in this collection....

"Southwest Wolf, a handmade decorative mini Silk Tapestry product, made of handcrafted multicolor silk sari yarn, is a unique & ecofriendly keepsake box !

Southwest Wolf is a soft fiber arts container, with a lid of its own, featuring two different earth toned silk sari yarns paired together. It is embellished with a vintage button: a raised wolf head surrounded by a horseshoe motif and contoured by a luminescent blue grey rim."

During the month of September, 20% of all brizel4TheAnimals Silk Tapestry Box sales will be donated to Defenders of Wildlife. If you'd like to find out more about this sensational organization, please read my Sept 1 blog post by clicking

Come visit my animal fundraising shop, brizel4TheAnimals, to peruse through my Silk Tapestry Boxes by clicking HERE. More boxes will be listed throughout the month & if you are looking for a specific totem animal do contact me if you'd like to place a custom order !

Speaking of totem animals... Molly below is doing a grand job of modeling a knitted kerchief that Jane from thedoghouse made...

"This moss green hand knitted dog bandanna features cute ladybird and daisy buttons. The scarf is triangular & measures approximately 10 x 10 x 15 inches, with 7" ties at either end to fasten around your dog's neck. Your dog will look cute as a button wearing this kitchy kerchief !"

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this item
will be donated to Etsy For Animals' charity of the month !

About Jane from thedoghouse:

"I live in Scotland with my fiancé & 2 rescue greyhounds. When I'm not getting creative with ink & screens, I operate my own dog walking business, spending my days outdoors in the beautiful Scottish countryside in the company of my favourite animals ! Max & Molly are my 2 rescue greyhounds & the inspiration behind my handmade products. My designs are printed by hand onto ethically sourced clothing, homewares & accessories by me in my home in Scotland."

N.B: Due to recent sales... some of the items in the Defenders treasury have been swapped out for other similar products... Go Team and hooray for our fund raising efforts ! Thanks so much to Jane for putting together this grand Treasury on behalf of Defenders.


  1. This is so cool! The energy being put into this month's charity is contagious! May it spread far and wide!

  2. Thanks so much Nicole! I really enjoyed putting together my Defenders treasury, though it was hard to pick which items to include from all the wonderful EFA COTM ones. (Didn't have a second thought about including your beautiful tapestry box though!) Big woof from Molly (& Max!). Jx

  3. Beautiful, nice job! I love seeing COTM treasuries, nice to see all the handicrafts folks make!
