Berry Baskets~The Curtsey Boutique

I love these Berry Baskets from The Curtsey Boutique, just like they are:):)!
I added them to an enamel tray, that sits next to my Keurig (coffee maker), and it is so handy to have the coffee, stevia and biscotti all in one place:) 
Don't you love the teal color?  Sometimes it's best to just leave it alone
 (and this is one of those times)!!

The chalk tag, burlap butterfly, felt rose and heart stick pins can also be found in
Have a great day!!
See ya soon~

Button Jar with The Curtsey Boutique

Hi guys!!!
I made this button jar with the plastic jars from The Curtsey Boutique.
The lids are fancy and so cute.  The button card is using more of the handmade embellishments from the shop.

Here is the button card (buttons from cork, mustache tag, key, seam binding ribbon, twine) 
all from the Etsy store.  I always find new stuff when I visit.

Thanks for stopping by~we had a great Easter!! Missing some of our family but the
 "little ones" help with that:):):)
I still can not blog through Fire Fox~Ugh!!  Very frustrating for sure.
See ya soon~

Junkin' and inspired!

Hi guys!!!
A couple of weeks ago I found these small clip boards, about a 5" X 7" (apx.)
At first I thought about covering them with paper and them a saw a stand made out of 
a 2x4 in Indiana.  
Hubby and I came up with a Texas version~

 The long groove is where the clip board goes, the
front groove is a worm hole:):)
And here is what it looks like~

It sits in the groove chiseled out. The wood is Texas Mesquite from the ranch.
The stand and tiles are from a scrabble game set!!!
Have a great weekend~
See ya soon~

Darkroom Door~Kombi cards!!!

Hi guys!!!
Blogging when I can get on~
This is set I made for Darkroom Door using the Kombi  Photo Stamp. 
 We call it a Volkswagen Van!!

I made two cards, using some old Basic Grey paper, I had stashed away:).

The reverse side of the print was a pale yellow, so I stamped the Kombi on that side.
  I loved the results!!! It gave the image a yellow tint.  I used  Brown Archival Ink by Ranger (Wendy Vecchi)~Potting Soil!!!

Thanks for stopping by~
See ya soon, one way or another:):)

Easter is fast approaching and The Curtsey Boutique has some really cute bakery bags that can easily be made into treat bags.  Here is one I made using the Kraft Bakery bag.

The seam binding ribbon, doilies and white tags are also found in the Etsy shop.  The rubber stamp is by Inkadinkado.   The shop is always adding new items and they are handmade or embellished.
Take a look:):)
