Splash of Summer Sale

Last Splash of Summer! 

Amazing how time passes by so quickly and here at Antica Treasures it seems that the day doesn't have enough hours to fulfill all our creative ideas. Fall is right around the corner and as I mentioned before, this is my favorite time of the year. Talking about "time", I have the pleasure to introduce my latest jewelry design the "Timeless Garden Necklace", it took me 2 days to design it as it had to be perfectly balanced and most importantly comfortable to wear. Should you be interested in purchasing a jewelry kit to make one yourself please let us know, the beads are available at our shop.

What's on Sale! Almost all jewelry in our "armoire" is 50% off, make sure to Shop Now as this sale will expire on Sunday!  This is a great opportunity to gather your last minute holiday gifts, office pollyana gifts, etc. 

Jewelry Classes: I am very happy to announce that we'll have ongoing classes in the beautiful studio of The Lil Country Shop. Date: 11/06/10 from 10 am - 12 pm. We'll be creating a lovely Parisian Charm Bracelet. Call me or e-mail me for additional information.

Customer Gallery: Do you design lovely treasures with our jewelry making supplies? or  our notions? Do you like to be the center of attention and receive compliments about your work? We certainly do! and we want you to get out there too. So...if you would like to be featured in Antica Treasures Blog please let us know. We would like to start doing Customer Gallery postings about you and your craft. Just remember that the majority of supplies in your project should have been provided by Antica Treasures in order to keep things fair.

Another great Recipe from Sweet Kathleen!


This recipe is an old-fashioned oldie but goodie. Perfect for the fall season and can be enjoyed anytime. They are easy to make and will produce a wonderful aroma while baking. I know when you bake these cookies they will become a favorite with your family and will be requested again and again.

2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 T. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ c. vegetable shortening
½ c. granulated sugar
½ c. light brown sugar firmly packed
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 lg. egg
¼ c. molasses
Cinnamon-sugar for rolling

Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cinnamon. Set aside. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, sugars and vanilla extract on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and molasses. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture. Mix just until blended. Cover and chill the dough for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the cinnamon sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheets, spacing them 2-inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the tops are rounded and slightly cracked. Cool on sheet 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container. Makes about 48 cookies.
