Treasury of the Week

 Hi Everyone... my name is Faye and I knit socks and that sounds like I'm at my first ever AA meeting. However, that is not the case. I am attempting a rather clumsy introduction of myself as one of the team's newest bloggers. 

With this introduction I might quickly burn my bridges and my only claim to fame may well be as the 'one week blogging wonder'.

Though I'm not all that comfortable with self promotion here is what I do in my shop at Etsy.

This is definitely not the Treasury of the Week for I am saving the best for last.

This is the beginning of a new weekly blog feature. I will be the first one to admit that choosing the most wonderful theme or color combination of the past week is a rather daunting task. Everyone is so gosh darned good at it.

However, I'll stumble along and in the coming weeks, hope to reveal the depth of curating talent we have on the Etsy Treasury Team.

This one has struck me as being so well put together showing a glorious combination of zebra stripes. 

Who knew that so many imaginative creators would be drawn to such a subject. A tremendous study of black and white. A huge round of applause goes out to this week's winner... and the first to hold such an honor.
