Friday Fall Feast of Treasuries

Sarah of the Technicolor Emporium returns (click here to see her last visit with the FAE) with a treasury so vibrantly colored you can almost smell wood smoke and taste apple cider! Here is her glorious treasury of "Autumn Leaves":

Featured in the free-fall of scrumptious leaves is this FAETeam member:

"Fall Splendor Earrings - Variation 4" by RainwaterStudios

Inkspired also returns (click here to see her last visit with the FAE) and this time she's been house hunting. In fact, she's developed quite a fine little "Fairy Home Real Estate Company" and all of her listings are prime locations:

Sprucing up the neighborhood is this featured FAETeam member's wee residence:

"Fairy House Flower Garden Conservatory with Miniature Pink Roses and Blossoms in a White Metal Scrollwork and Glass Lantern" by brandylinn18

The husband and wife team at IvoryMoon creates lovely jewelry, carvings, bookmarks, prints and specimens from natural materials such as stones, fossils, wood and pearls. I know you will enjoy the soft, fresh elegance of their "Fresh as a Peach" treasury:

This peach of a FAETeam member is featured in this lovely treasury:

"Sunrise Sunset Necklace" by RainwaterStudios

The Cotton Connection offers hand crochet cotton fun that's good for the environment and good for you, selling hair scrunchies, wash cloth sets and bath puffs, too. Let's join her in a visit "In the Land of Fae":

Tucked away in this little bit of fairyland are these FAETeam member's creations:

"Faerie Tarot Bag in Fern Green Suede Handmade on Etsy - Heart of the Forest" by FaerieKat

"Ivy Manor Magic Portal... Fairy, Elf, Faerie, Gnome, Hobbit, Wee Folk Magical Door..10 inches" by LovingLeeCrafted

"maple tree faerie nature spirit ooak sculptural ornament" by ElysianFields

FAETeam member David of Graphite Web renders amazing fantasy and custom art drawings of fairies, dragons, mermaids, monsters and more. He says "There's nothing more primal than the color red" and brings us this "Red Hot Sexy" treasury to prove it:

Helping David prove his argument is this FAETeam member's creation:

"Red Fairy Ear Cuff Wrap" by Thyme2dream

Knotty Knowles is a social worker who keeps busy at night and on weekends making things she'd love to wear. She makes jewelry, knits, crochets, sews, and works with clay. She also loves the band "Heart" and entered Etsy's contest to style sisters Ann and Nancy with her treasury, "Rockin Ultraviolet for Heart":

Can you see this featured FAETeam member's creation rockin' it on stage?

"Spider Widow Wire Lace Bib Necklace Handmade on Etsy" by FaerieKat

Simply Divine Deserts offers simple, wholesome, and delicious homemade baked goods that look so wonderful I'm surprised they don't leap off the screen and disappear down my throat! I don't know how they learned it, but those peanut butter cookies are calling my name [sigh]. Also calling my name are the amazing creations in her "I Love Earrings" treasury:

Perking up these passel pretties are these FAETeam member's lovely creations:

"Purple Cat Eye Earrings" by RainwaterStudios

Twenty-two year old Sahetah of Sahetah's Jewelry not only takes care of her grandfather and hand-crafts jewelry, she also finds time to write "on the side"! Not restricting herself to any specific style, she creates jewelry, bookmarks and key chains that range from preppy to goth. Her treasury today is a little haven of enchantment called "Land of Fairies":

On hand to greet the tourists is this featured FAETeam member's fairy creation:

"Faerie Flower Bough Necklace Handmade on Etsy" by FaerieKat

Gilat of Gilat: Mosaic Your Life began working with glass 7 years ago and from the first moment was captured by its charm. Specializing in the inlay of glass in jewelry and accessories (such as belt buckles), Gilat's wish is that the pieces will bring a sense of aristocracy and royalty. Enjoy this softer, more mellow treasury of "The Other Halloween":

Contributing to the laid back atmosphere is this featured FAETeam member's creation:

"Faerie Folder with Writing Pad Handmade on Etsy - Who Spilled the Ink" by FaerieKat

Classy Baby Threads is a work-at-home-mother of four and nana of one with another on the way. She adores babies (who doesn't?!) and is a recycling, repurposing, reuse it "or else" mama, from recycled packing and re-purposed boxes to reclaimed fabrics and garments. She's just as excited about the coming Autumn and it's first major celebration, but I have to warn you, a certain (quite probably beloved) theme song may about to be unleashed into that niggling part of your brain that sings annoying jingles over and over and over all day long without your permission. Here is "They're Creepy and They're Spooky":

Contributing to the overall ookiness is this featured FAETeam member's creation:

"Wicked Venom Necklace" by RainwaterStudios

Kara of Kara's Krafty Kreations kreates dolls, angels, klay pot kreations, seasonal dekor, home dekor, and kute stuff for children and babies. I konfess, Kara put the Ks in her shop name and I did all the rest; I kouldn't help myself [grin!]. Are you ready to swing from silly all the way over to "Things That Go Bump in the Night"?

I'd rather no bump into this featured FAETeam member's creation in the dark:

"Spooky Spider Earrings" by RainwaterStudios

Niftyknits is the official abode of the most adorable Meerkats you'll ever meet. Custom knit or ready made, if you can imagine it, these Meerkats can be it. From superheroes and sports to icons and fantasies, these knit "in the round" creatures have a life of their own. Kind-hearted Niftyknits wants to know, "Which One of You Scared Marvin?"

We're absolutely sure it was this featured FAETeam member's creature:

"Damsel . dragon art magnet" by Aquariann

Thank you to all our wonderful curators for featuring Fantasy Artists of Etsy (FAE) team members in their treasuries, and congratulations to our FAETeam members who were featured.

Remember, all of the photos (except for the large treasury photos themselves) are linked to that item's listing, including the curators. Please take the time to visit them and their treasuries, as well as our fellow team members.
