For those of you who don't already know, Etsy members are encouraged to create treasuries, a collection of Etsy artists' work that suits a specific theme.  For the curator, it 's a fun way to browse the thousands upon thousands of works and pick out your faves. The prize for the curator is to be picked - praise be - to appear on Etsy's front page!  Artists like to be included because it invariably generates traffic and followers to their page and - praise be - a sale! 

Once in a while I hit the jackpot and create something that has all the "right stuff" to be picked for treasuries. My most successful Treasury-worthy product so far has been these Sound of Music gift tags:

I have lost count of how many times these tags have appeared in "My Favorite Things" treasuries. In fact, I created a treasury myself with that theme a long time ago.  I have no proof, but I have a feeling that these tags had to be the initial inspiration for other people's collections because you can't help but think of the song.  Ahem, being boastful for a minute ...

More recently, I seem to have hit upon the right stuff with two more recently listed products.  My bright yellow frames are the leading champions right now. I have a rough count of 15 treasuries - make that 16; another one popped up while I was writing this (see below) - so far that include these frames.  I guess they're hitting the mark since so many of us are having spring-like weather so early this year.

Following close behind is this aqua and lime green collection.  Not as many as the yellow so far, but hot on those yellow tails!

Besides being thrilled when I'm chosen, I love seeing how other people put collections together. And I find lots of products that I love in these treasuries as well.  If you want to kill a few hours and browse a whole bunch of treasuries, go here.  The variety and talent is outstanding. Here's two of the latest collections with my frames.
