Are you in the Mood for Soup?

Well it is cold outside and my way of cooking during the colder weather changes with the weather. I tend to want more hearty meals and occasionally includes a homemade soup now and again. Here is a recipe for one of my very favorite soups and I hope you give it a try because it is a KEEPER! It is filling and easy to boot so give it a try and let me know how you like it!


4 cups chicken stock
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups 1/2 & 1/2
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lbs potatoes, peeled and diced (I cheat and use 2 15oz+ cans of diced potatoes)

Cook the potatoes in the chicken stock until soft. (Canned potatoes are already soft so there is no reason to wait to continue.)

In a separate pan melt butter and add onion and celery and cook until soft then add a small amount of the chicken stock to this mixture. Add flour slowly until the mixture is thick and smooth.

Add this combination to the potatoes in the hot stock stirring continuously.

Slowly add milk and seasonings, half and half and heat until hot...but do not boil!

Add crackers and enjoy!

This should be a wonderful winter meal that the whole family will enjoy! Happy holidays and stay safe!

Small Technical Problem ....

Sorry to say, after waiting about two weeks to have my url changed in Facebook with the networked blogs that I had made a small mistake when trying to get it so that it is functional. I used and you see the arrow as the thumbnail and can't get to my blog by clicking on the url link. I have now changed it to and seem to have better luck...but it still doesn't work all the time! I have sent out requests again to have my fbf verify my url but they may not want to be my friends after this next attempt...I hope that I'm wrong but this is a bigger job than I thought and doesn't leave any room for error without relying on having the changes verified too! Bummer! I apologize to whom I had to ask for help and hope you can forgive me. If it doesn't work this time I'll be leaving it alone and people will need to type my url in and search and follow me the "old" way! Thank you for all of your help and for putting up with this ...and be rest a sured that this will not continue. I may find out this doesn't matter at all and it just wasn't meant to be! If it doesn't work....not to fear...I am done and will continue without networked blogs but will remain at this location. Life goes on! Hugs to all!

It was a Success!

I would like to take this time to thank all of my facebook friends that helped me get my url address changed to go along with my blog! I now can be found and located in with the networked blogs and you can follow me there with my changed url! This could have NEVER happened without everyones support! I now need to look into updating the look of my blog picture and I'm all set! (On the networked blogs in facebook...not here! LOL) This is the most wonderful thing that has happened and I held out that I could get all 5 verifications to accomplish this and now have the most wonderful gift...and chance to revive my blog after such a change and come out smiling! Thank you to all and I appreciate you kindness for doing this job for me and for coming in and taking a look! You mean the world to me! Have a very happy holiday!

Well here I am again and with a New Blog, Address and Etsy Shop!

Good morning all Readers! How are you? Staying warm and safe I hope! Yes...this is me Willowtree Treaures with a new blog look, new address for my blog, and new Etsy shop look and have been busy moving my items into my brand new , and kinda new, sites! My blog banner and my banner/avatar are a creation from Wildenblue Farm Designs and is the most beautiful opening to a shop and blog I have EVER seen! Visit her shop today and see all her creative digital beauties! . Laura has been a wonderful help in getting me started off right with an amazing opening to both and is always so supportive and helpful to get me started again. I can't thank her enough! Thankyou Laura!

The fact that my blog banner is off center is something I may have done when I couldn't get my last banner to take. I changed some of the html in the template and can't remember what I did to get my last banner up. I am currently working on that and hope to find the solution. In the meantime I hope that you love the new look and color choices. It is totally different and I've taken to it in a BIG way! I hope you do too!

For all of the crafters that I had on my site I lost the list when I changed my blog address to: http://timesofoldcreations.blogspot and will try to go through the list of people I'm following....something I didn't lose... and attempt to restore the blogs that I featured on my site. Don't be shy! If you want to be featured here please just ask and I will gladly follow you! It would be my pleasure!

Also to get to my Etsy shop the new address is: .
I was totally lost when I got rid of a lot of sites I had been on and am now just trying to reconnect with some of them! My twitter is now gone and will look into that soon! I still am on facebook and nothing there has changed just so you know!

I have slowly, but surely , have been resetting up my shop and stocking the shelves and am currently having a coupon sale with the code: TOOCS2010 to get 10% off of your purchases upon checkout. Please come and checkout my Etsy changes and feel free to purchase anything with this code to get your savings! In January I will be having another special because it is the month of my birthday and I would love you have you all benefit from that also be watching!

Happy Holidays to all and a very Happy New Year!

Change of Plans.......

Good morning everyone! Due to continued sales going on in my shop I will continue stay open until November 1st with my current offerings. I still have too much inventory left and would love to make sure as much of what I have finds a home as possible. I know that I am closing during the busiest time of year and may now
start working on new projects and get them into the store and not close
at all until the "busy time" is over and take a break in June of this
next year. Don't worry I will get my act together ...after all this was the purpose of this time away! Not to create havoc in my life and yours! Have a great day all and keep posted and new things coming out and getting ready to restock with some new things in my shop happening sooner than expected! Have a wonderful day all and I hope you aren't in the path of the rain storm! Wear your high boots!

My VERY first Patchwork Quilt is Done!

Good morning everyone! How are you doing today? I hope everyone if feeling fine and jumping for joy to see today off in grand fashion! I said that I wouldn't be able to slow down much this weekend and that was exactly the case! Do I know myself or not? Well I got my first patchwork quilt and pillow done and came back with pictures to show you! Honestly, I would love to know what you think! I hope to get better and more time efficient as I continue to make these and get better as it as I go be aware that this is my first attempt at trying ....even a pillow,(not to mention a patchwork pillow and there were no instructions on how to make boarders or how to put on a back. (I believe my general knowledge of sewing helped me figure this out with success even though my husband protested my "right sides together" rule also stands for the back...but don't forget the slit to turn it right side OUT when all done sewing or you just wasted a whole bunch of time LOL! I ended up putting white flannel as the back to make this a snuggly cover and didn't want to sew a middle down the back of the throw and flannel has a larger measurement so that didn't need to be done.

Ok so here are is the description of this item. It measures 45"wide x about 55"long and the pillow measures 23 1/2" x23 1/2". It is made of cotton fabrics for the patchwork and boarder materials and has a while flannel back. Looks like it could stand another ironing but layed out pretty nicely and does very well laying over the back of a couch or chair, could be a sizable lap cover, and would do very well in a baby crib. Here is my newest skill that I have been working on last week and this weekend. Please let me know what you think, what could be improved, what should have been changed and just generally if you think I show the skill to pursue this! Thanks so much this will help me identify what I need to work on or what I'm doing right!

Thank you for being part of this experience with me and viewing my first attempt at trying the life of a quilter/pillow maker! It has been exciting trying this and hope to make smaller/larger items as well! I would say any type of sewing will always help you with any project you take on and can only make you better and stronger at the skill at hand! I hope to investigate other types of sewing as well and am glad that I did!Confusious Deb Says: There is a time when you have done something so long , it seems like a safe zone and you just feel comfortable with the same old thing that you know when it is time to venture out and start investigating what is around you! If you have the desire go for it! The worst that can happen is that you just find that it isn't as great as you thought it would be...or you may not end up liking it! You won't know until you try! Have a wonderful day! Now for a fortune cookie!LOL

Last Chance To Stock for Christmas .....

Good morning all! How have you been? I hope everyone is doing fine! I just wanted to take this time to remind you that my sale is continuing on Etsy and will be around for about another week! I have just reduced, my already low prices and did it one last time for anyone that would like to purchase something from my shop I do urge you to do so soon for I plan to have my shelves unstocked, and my shop dormant ,in about another week making it October 2nd! I said I needed: 1) a much needed break from the hectic life I have been living 2) a fair amount of time to regroup and learn some new skills 3) to clean out my shop and bring in a fresh inventory 4) come back refreshed and hopefully have a new plan to meet my customer's needs. I will continue my blog when I have announcements of new happenings, my progress and to just check in with my not to fear I will be in touch with you to let you know as things are happening and tell you the latest news concerning how things are going.

Well so far my relaxation has consisted of trying a quilt and have one done that will measure 30"x 40" ,which is not that large but is good for a first timer. I will come back with pictures to show you what I've been doing! I'd like to try another of the same style, but bigger, and give a quilt pillow a try. (So much for kicking up my heels and resting! Makes me wonder if I even know what doing that is all about!) Now that I see that this skill doesn't involve time travel, jumping from heights, or eating intestines I see that this dream of being able to quilt is possible and plan to get something that I will do and put aside to put into my "tweeked" Etsy shop! I have some great patterns for dolls I would love to try and may see about making wreaths. First comes some much needed R&R! I just wanted to let you know that I'm still around and not letting the skills I have grow mold and rot!

Well why was I here in the first place?LOL Ohhh that's right....Come see my shop today and enjoy my last week with Etsy! Thank you to all that have made purchases! You have all been so GREAT! I hope you are enjoying your creations and they have filled Christmas gifts, are selling as inventory in your businesses, or are just pleasing to look at in a corner of your home and make you smile every time you pass by! If you want to purchase more I have downed my prices on almost everything in my shop and you can even save more if you buy within the next week! Have a great day everyone and thanks for coming in and reading my post!

Ok...What is going on with my Business?

Hello everyone! How are you today? It is getting a chill in the air here in Pa and the feel for Fall is definitely here now! I can hardly believe that Sept. is half over!

First of all I would like to thank all of my followers, from facebook to twitter and my devoted readers. My lovely/supportive artistic friends that I have gotten to know through my Ebay and Etsy groups and my wonderful customers during this time of working on "closing" my Etsy shop! I can't thank you enough! I promised that I would explain myself so people will know what is going on and what my plans are for the future.

What prompted me to work on closing my shop in the beginning was the lack of time for creation. Not being able to come out with new items has sent me into a panic and find it nothing short of frustrating that this isn't possible! It has gone on all Spring and Summer and now it is Fall and time seems to be something that I seriously am lacking right now. I thought a break could let me refresh and regroup to come up with new ideas and expand my skills. One skill that I have been wanting to learn was how to make a rag quilt and bags. I thought about this for about a year now ...but need time to work on some projects so that I can study how this is done. I would also like to look into making wall quilts, table runners, placemats and pillows. This is going to take some time to study and then practice this to be able to create things that people would be interested in. To say that I will not be creating any dolls, ornies, lamps or items that I have been known to sell on Etsy I would be fooling myself! I would just wish to get rid of my current inventory and bring in new items. These were skills that I taught myself to do about 10 or more years ago and will never lose my interest or passion to continue this line of art!

To say that I officially will be "closing" my shop in Etsy ....never to return...would be not the actual happening! I plan to take an extended break to get myself together, learn some new skills and hopefully I'll be back with more to offer customers! My banner will stay where it is, my heartings will not be touched and all the information about my shop will not move! I will leave an openning announcement when I get ready to stock my shelves again and reopen. I will also post it here and keep in touch with the people that are interested in what I will have to offer.

Please be patient with me as I take on a new journey! I will make posts here as something interesting happens or ...I've finished a new skill and made something of interest! I will also post it on facebook and twitter. For now I will be keeping up the posts on facebook of new arrivals at the Red Rose Co-op store and keep you informed what is going on there! Keep smiling all and I shall see you again!

Attention Reader's and Store Owners...

Good morning all! I have been running a mile a minute this spring and summer and yet nothing seems to get any better for time to create and spend time with my OFG Team! I am just livid that all of this time has been spent on everything and everyone else and now I've got the antique shop in the mix that just adds to my responsibilities! I can't be true to the artistic group I've joined and most of all have no time to work on new creations. I am extemely sorry to say have decided to work on closing my Etsy shop and concentrate on the antique store I have joined and am currently having a Slash the Price of Already reduced items. These prices would be GREAT for any store owner that would like to add something to their shop and is at wholesale prices or you can finally purchase those items you have had your eyes on and just have been waiting for prices to be reduced to be easier on your wallet! Well now is your chance to buy, buy ,buy!

I have already reduced the prices, DRASTICALLY! The purchaser must pay for shipping and handling which accounts for savings when buying multible items! International sales are welcome but must contact me for shipping and handling costs before purchasing! Thank you!

Look at my policies if you are interested in purchasing insurance coverage, and/or delivery confirmation. I will gladly add this to an invoice if you would like these purchased.

Tax will be included to cover all sales done for Pennsylvania residence,6%, at checkout and thank you to all that end up doing business with me! Have a great day and Enjoy your shopping experience!

Expanding the Business......

Good morning readers! How have all of your enjoyed your spring and summer? I hope you got those gardens, flowers and newly planted trees well on their way and have fully enjoyed them this year! As always I am complaining about how fast time flies and this year has been no different! It seems that the summer is a time for nothing but running to get everything done before the cold weather hits again and we are in a foot of snow! We have a while longer so keep enjoying the warm, sunny, beautiful weather for it never lasts all that long!

As fall is about to be upon us in no time.... I always am rethinking , and evaluating my business and looking into how to expand or make changes to my business to make it more interesting, reach out in different forums for accessibility , and make your journey with me interesting and pleasant! I'm always searching for options to allow for growth as a person and as an artist! My latest adventure has been something that I have mulled over many times and have finally am making the plunge! I will be reentering an antique store which I have done business with many years ago ...but now is under a new management. The name of the shop is "Red Rose Antique Co-op", formally known as the "Yellow Orchid", and is located in downtown Mansfield, Pennsylvania. Don't worry about what I am offering in my Etsy shop. I will continue my online sales and will be adding this extra selling forum to my list.

Having spent many years refinishing furniture, buying and selling antiques and having appreciation for anything and everything that is a product of times gone past...I have to admit that this is one job that I truly do miss! The process of making a handmade creation ended up being something that ended up coming naturally after spending so much time in co-ops where antiquing furniture is very much the same process and is the part of making primitive dolls "primitive!" My husband and I have entered into the antiquing process together and have a love for big, heavy, challenging furniture projects and have been the best of companions when collaborating on how to go about getting a great finished product when working with wood! My husband enjoys this activity as much as I do and is eager to return to the antiquing business. It certainly has proven to be a favorite past time that we have both enjoyed and could see ourselves doing as a retirement activity!

Now how does this effect my primitive business online with Etsy? Basically it won't change anything. I do plan to add my creations to my booth when I begin and have taken a few things out of my shop to get started. You will see when investigating what I had in my online shop are gone and this is where they will be destined to be in the near future. If there was something there that you wanted to purchase....just contact me and I will make another to put back in Etsy. I have made up to half a dozen of the same dolls in the past and only a few have I only made one of. These "one and onlys" are the creations that I plan to display in my "Red Rose" booth. I have also taken the tags to use with my dolls and will make more for Etsy. (Am I confusing you yet?LOL Hopefully my new tags will be bigger, better and I can offer better pictures when I re-add them to my online shop.) Now it is just time to get more shopping done to fill our booth and I will be adding pictures of the shop. You may want to make a trip to Mansfield should its contents, from all of its dealers, interest you.)

The "Red Rose Antique Co-op" can be located on facebook, by putting its name in your search, and has contact information and location to visit and any other information you may find helpful! I will be beginning my new journey August 1st and will be taking on a new name when I get there..." Willowtreetreasures and Antiques" it will be staying the same. Time to get new business cards! LOL Once we are settled I will be adding information, giving updates, and sharing pictures. For readers that not only love primitive to vintage art creations...but antiques as well this may interest you! I hope you will enjoy this journey with me! Take care and until next post....have a wonderful day!

Primitive Shabby is the Description of these Spring/Summer Beauties!

Hello everyone! How are all of you? Are you gardening yet? Just about set for summer to arrive? Do you have your porches, fences, outdoor sheds painted? Your flowers ready to go and all ready do your first couple rounds on the mower getting the lawn in shape? How about putting the bark down, adding stone to your driveway, or cleaning the built up mold off your patio? Don't worry I won't pin you on all of these questions. There is still time! We have done a little of everything here and still have much more to go. Our gazebo is up and has all ready had the "breaking in rip". The wind has been horrible and one of the corners broke open . It called for a quick sew and back on the top of the gazebo it went. Hopefully the 50mph ,or more, winds won't be back for awhile! This is an every year job and did a fix up job on our last gazebo and its top was made of canvas! Now when does canvas give into nature and all it has to throw at it? If this is common I guess I've been missing something major about the quality of what you can get today and how much things REALLY cost!

I am here today to tell you of two new additions to my Etsy shop. I have made these little gals because my daughter-in-law's sister is having a baby and she asked if I could make her a doll for her room. Well we all know what I do can't be in a child's hands because of its construction and made sure that Nicole knew this. She was still interested that I try. So I do what I normally do. I make three. Not all turnout exactly the same and there will be at least one that I like better than the other two so I went ahead and made my three.

Actually they all turned out pretty cute and each looks just a little different from the rest. My favorite feature is their wild, windblown, hair. Shake her head and almost any look is possible. Comb it down and she'll look very tame and tailored. I love to give them plenty of layers to get these different looks. I gave them different colored store bought bear, after giving them a touch of life, and snappity-do-day day...never thought you'd hear those words huh?LOL I finished the dolls today. I sent Nicole the picture of the one that I have set aside for her sister and had two left and they have become my latest additions to my Etsy shop. Here are the Shabby girls now:

When you love every style of doll there is, yet my very favorite is primitive, mixing the styles is easy and love the look of them because it is like getting two creations all wrapped up in one! I hope you enjoy them as much as I have making them for Nicole's sister and for you! Go and take a gander and see what you think!

Additions and Changes made in my Etsy and FuzzB Shops!

Hello all! I have been so busy the past will getting my slide show on Fuzzb, getting new pictures posted and getting new items listed. I have added my Etsy shop mini widget to my fuzzB social page...along with my networking signup to follow my blog. This shop in general has truly been through an overhaul and more. Now I can begin new items to add to this shop and my Etsy shop as well.The new items I've added here are many and you must go in to see them all! This shop is certainly now growing and plan to continue to add more items as I continue to create so be watching!

In Etsy I have added two new items: an Annie and Andy "Luck of the Irish" doll set. Yup I realize Saint Patricks Day has come and gone...but this set would actually look cute year round out where your visitors can view them. Best of all this set is a set that I created myself there is no set like it anywhere! It is TOTALLY original!

I have also added a set of primitive cats with the eyelids and beautiful hypnotic eyes. Everyone seems to love this set no matter what fabric is used or what style the cats are made in they are always a hit!

I hope you have enjoyed hearing what I've been up to, the changes you will see in both shops, and hear some of the new items that you can expect to see. Along the left side you will see where I can be located...FuzzB and Etsy are listed there. Just click on these and have fun! I hope you enjoy what I have been doing lately and hope to start my first new project next week so be watching! Have a great day!

I've got the Cutest Frogettes for Your Enjoyment on Etsy

Hello readers! I know I wouldn't be long before I would have a new creation made and posted on Etsy and I am here to share with you what these new creations are. Are you a lover of our swamp friends....frogs, toads, turtles, snakes or slugs? All of are not...our wildlife depends on their services to keep nature in check. I personally have a love for peeper frogs for their smallness and toads for the sounds they make when extending their bellies and how they can skillfully eat a fly! Not that my newest treat are flies! I have made a very fancy selection of what I'm calling....the Frogette Sisters and are very talented singers during the day... that will perform at any "hoppin' pad" and keep watch over the swamps at night so things stay calm and quiet! There is Alice, the redhead, Bonnie, the brunette, and Chrintina the sandy blonde. Now I'll have you meet them.....

Here they are together:

Meet Alice:

Meet Bonnie:

Meet Christina:

If you never thought you'd like a reptile....maybe you want to rethink that because you have to admit these are not the typical reptilian type...they are special and they are waiting for you in my Etsy shop! Go take a look and see if frogs can be something that you would add to your home! Enjoy and look to the left to get the link you will need to view them in Etsy. Enjoy!

A Special thank you goes to The Feather Factory!

Hello readers! I hope all of your are doing fine and enjoying my newest creations for Spring! I have a very special thank you that I would love to send to the owner of the shop "The Feather Factory!" I am soo late and apologize fully for having to wait so long for sending this thank you for a fantastic item that I won in a give a way on her blog!

The Feather factory is a wonderful shop that is located on FuzzB. For the nature lover she has anything you may want for your home decorating that has to do with wild life and nature, mainly our bird friends, that have many uses such as squirrel feeders, rooster wall hangers, a humming bird clock and rooster canisters. All of her items are very affordable and would be great additions to any home! The neatest items are all the many types of bird feathers she sells. They are from all types of birds with the most beautiful feathers and can be used in crafting and are made with many types of feathers called feather pads. Feather pads made with marabou, guinea, peacock, reeve and many other exotic bird feathers can be found. What her FuzzB shop is truly full of is bird houses. Not just any type of birdhouses ....but birdhouses that are so beautiful and detailed that they are made to find a great place to display them in a favorite nook, or cranny of your home! Actually, that is where I diplayed my winnings was on another winning that I won from The Firecrackerkid from Etsy's winnings of a primitive candle holder that is hanging in my kitchen right above my kitchen table! It puts it high enough that my cats can't touch it...yet is in sight well enough, upon entering into my house that you can see it right away!

Take a look at this beauty!

This is the cutest,decorative, birdhouse I have ever seen! If you think this one is cute go into her FuzzB shop and take a look at all of her other birdhouses. They are every size, color and style imaginable! If you LOVE anything having to do with our feathered friends checkout her shop. You won't be sorry!


An extra suprise in with my winnings was a bottle of Linden Flower bath and shower gel! Apparently this same seller has another shop...which I am thinking is the one from Art Fire that sells this wonderful product! I haven't fully checked out all that this shop contains but is just as interesting and sells things that you won't be able to get elsewhere!

I was so suprised to see this extra winning in with my first and LOVE body and bath supplies! I have gone crazy over this also and as you can see have used this soo much that I'm now running out so I'll need to look her up soon! This shop's name is Gypsy G Designs! To get there just put this link in your search and enjoy!


Every time I was done husband would walk in and say what a lovely smelling product she sent me! And IT IS!!!! She has so much more items for the person that loves the look of beautiful feathers from more feather pads to handknit lampshade covers!Her shop is full and is currently having a 10% off sale so see her today for some great prices on some GREAT items!

Again, thank you Feather Factory for my wonderful winnings! It has been a pleasure to get to know you and see what you have to offer your customers! Two thumbs up for this shop's owner for great offerings and wonderful service!
