Treasury...

OK, I have a confession to make. I have now been selling on etsy for over two and a half years, and until the other day I had never published a treasury. OK, I had messed around with the idea, started a few collections, and then got really fussy and precious about it and never shared what I found... And then the thought struck me, just how selfish that was. I have been featured in countless treasuries made by other users, and this has generated huge amounts of traffic to my site, and huge amounts of sales too over the period of time I have been on here.
So finally, here it is...
I give you.... (drum roll please) Anarchy in the UK!


I have tried to do something a little different, both in terms of content and theme. I hope that comes through! There are lots of tenuous and subtle links to anarchy and punk, along with some not so subtle UK references, and I found some great items by sellers I hadn't come across before too. Click the image to go through to the list. The drawing of the shoe is absolutely breathtaking - it's aVivienne Westwood shoe drawn in pencil, and the artist, IleanaHunter has amazing skills!! Other faves are renegade potter carriereichardt's print, fight to be arty. Check out her ceramics too. Fab, and also fitting in a time when students in the UK have been protesting, and even rioting, about the cuts to higher education. I feel for teenagers today whose ambitions to study at university have been affected by these cuts. We will all live in a poorer society when only the rich can afford to study the arts.
Politics aside, this treasury malarkey has been a learning curve too. I am a bit of a perfectionist with things like this, and perhaps being more decisive would have been a good idea, as then it might not have taken quite so many hours... But one thing is for sure, I will appreciate all those lists I get put into just a little bit more from today onwards. Thank you to all the people who have treasured me - believe me I treasure you too!
