Snagged a Treasury - A for Apples!

I just snagged a Treasury! And in honor of my latest necklace.. I have decided to do a Treasury full of apples! I love apples since when I was really young.. I guess it's because a. Apple is always the first one that you learn when you are learning about the alphabet, b. My Chinese / Mandarin name is inspired by Apples. 丽苹 literally means beautiful apple :) and c. they are usually more yummy than pears and lot more crunchy than bananas and sweeter than oranges... Hope that's enough reason to love them! Here's my treasury!

I think I have done a apple theme treasury before but at that time, I had red apples vs green ones. This time, I decided to pick mainly red apples. From the above selection, the following are my favorites.
  1. Zakka Apple Trinket Box by Wunderkind
    - I love the cute apple shape box that allows me to keep all knick knacks. It also beautifies the place like a cute ornament. It is available in RED or GREEN.
  2. Custom Apple Teacher Dish by thebrickkiln
    - I love this cute dish that is a perfect gift for any teachers or even colleagues. I can imagine putting my paper clips and other small stationery items on it! You can even custom it by indicating your receiver's name!

  3. Silver Red Delicious Apple Silhouette Necklace by ANORIGINALJEWELRY
    - I love the matte finish on this simple yet chic apple pendant. It's a perfect for everyday wear. Love it!

  4. Red Apple Necklace by ME!
    - I love the bling bling apple that glitters. It stands out with no matter what I wear. Definitely a conversation starter or attention stealer! :P I love it so much that I decided to make one for myself!
