Announcement   Alwayz A Treasure

"What do you have in your hand?"

Like so many sellers, Alwayz A Treasure began as a dream. In my case, it was literally, as a dream.

One evening, after another long day at an office job with diminishing hours, wondering how to make ends meet, I prayed, "Lord, what do I do?"
That night I had a dream of the shop, the name, what the business cards would look like - everything! I awakened excited for the first time in a long time, and got to work! I have always loved paint chip words/colors, vintage buttons, silk, velvet & collages. Making heirloom gifts with the items that I already had on-hand was simply the next step of faith!

It has been so thrilling & humbling to have the work of my hands bring joy to others, smiles to dear faces, and honor to my Savior & Friend, Jesus!

I am so grateful for all of the support that friends, family & other amazing shop owners have shown me as I follow this dream to bring graciousness to others through beautiful things!

XOXO
Love,
Nina Ruth :-)

About

"What do you have in your hand?"

Like so many etsy sellers, Always a Treasure and Always a Treasure Sweetpea Baby Boutique began as a dream. In my case, it was literally, as a dream.

One evening, after another long day at an office job with diminishing hours, wondering how to make ends meet, I prayed, "Lord, what do I do?"

That night I had a dream of the shop, the name, what the business cards would look like - everything! I awakened excited for the first time in a long time, and got to work! I have always loved paint chip words/colors, vintage buttons, silk, velvet & collages. Making heirloom gifts with the items that I already had on-hand was simply the next step of faith!

It has been so thrilling & humbling to have the work of my hands bring joy to others, smiles to dear faces, and honor to my Savior & Friend, Jesus!

I am also so honored to have my work featured and sold at a local boutique:

The Grand Tea Room in Escondido, CA:

    Asher is my geriatric rescue dog and he likes to "help out" by hanging out in the workshop and begging for treats while I'm trying to work LOL. Like Lilly before him, he is a hypoallergenic dog.
