All about my friend Claudia

I have wanted to introduce my women friends and their lives and passions for a while now. I am finally getting the ball rolling and I would like to introduce to you the owner of Antica Treasures & Shabby Shops in a box. This is her story and I would love for you to go check out her products and follow her in her journey of life on her blog as well. .
Claudia Twardus
Antica Treasures Creator & Owner

Antica Treasures was born in 2008 when I discovered my love for jewelry designing. I acquired a vast quantity of supplies at a very fast pace, more than I could use in a lifetime. It was at this point when I felt the need to share my creative journey with others and decided to open an online shop as well as offering classes in town.
I come from a long line of self-entrepreneurs; thus, it was only natural for me to transform my passion into a business. At a professional level, I have a bachelor degree in Psychology and speak three languages (English, Spanish, and French). Some of my interests include Art Therapy, antiquing, reading, and traveling.

Antica Treasures product line is focused into vintage inspired jewelry and jewelry making supplies; however, you may often find paperie & other handmade goods. Jewelry making workshops are available in town and Antica Treasures sells their products in many local shops and participates in multiple local fairs and events.

I live a "Vintage Inspired Life" in Delaware with my husband, daughter and two pets. I create the goods of Antica Treasures in my beautiful home studio built by my awesome husband.
Our shelves carry whimsical & romantic handmade jewelry, exclusive crafting notions, paperie and other necessities for your Vintage Inspired Life! We create our special treasures in our home studio in Delaware, USA.
Every one of our customer's is very special to us and great service and quality are our priorities. Your order will be lovingly packaged and you'll receive a free gift with every order regardless of how much you spend.

Her newest passion in life is to help others promote their business. Visit her sister site ! Join her and others as they promote their business's and/ or you can buy a box for yourself to see what the buzz is all about.

My Moms Roosters/ Fridays questions are below this post..

hERE aRE ALL mY mOMS rOOSTErS aND ChiCKS / Fridays Questions is below this post..

My Mom is so proud of her Chicks and Roosters. So when I said I needed to come over and take pictures of them for my blog, she got really excited. I hope you enjoy yourself strolling through her kitchen. These pictures don't do them justice. Have a wonderful weekend. Kath'

Five Question Friday

1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?

Oh This one is easy. I am a light sleeper that tosses and turns all night. I get up many times to finally stay up after 4 or 5 hours of sleep. The older I get the less sleep I get. All the girls in my family are this way and we laugh that when we are 90 yrs. old do we only get to plan on one hour of sleep ? I have been known to get up and find chocolate in the middle of the night. This I know is true because it will be melted all over me, the bed, the pillow case etc. I do have a neat bed when I get up in the morning though. It doesn't take me long to make when my husbands out of town. Just pull the blankets down and wala...

2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more __pain free______________.

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?

That after you hit 30 that it is harder to loose the weight you pack on in your 20's. It so easy to put on and ten times harder to get it off.

4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?

Oh this one is hard because I am the flea marketholic. I got a rose night light for a dollar, and a really neat set of 3 pictures that were someones grandma's. I will take pictures of these later and get them on here for you to see. Every ones still sleeping. lol

5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?

Oh Boy, it's 5 a.m. so I would have to say that an order of homemade biscuit and gravy. It has to be homemade though. Its so hard to find a restaurant that truly makes it themselves, anymore. It's frustrating !!! I would want a nice hot cup of Tentley orange/ peach tea as well.
