~~Etsy Store Items And A Few New Things~~

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great start to your week! Today was like a weekend day for us. Martin Luther King day meant no school for Chase and no work for Kevin. He works for the city so he gets lots of holidays off. We had a house full of boys today...it's a good thing we have this computer/t.v. room. I don't know what we would do without it.... and Kevin just THOUGHT it was his room! HA! Anyways, I was a little productive today...made some frames, cleaned the house (sort of) and cleaned out my car...it was HORRIBLE! I've noticed I let things go more in the winter...it's too cold and besides the light doesn't shine in as much so you can't see the dirt!! LOL!! I need to take after Melissa...she keeps everything so clean and organized! If you have not visited her blog you definitely should!
Here are some frames I recently listed in my Etsy Store
The ribbons on this frame are just beautiful! Love the touch of zebra too...it really makes this frame pop!

I have a thing for butterflies...
The jewelled ribbon is gorgeous!!!

This picture does not do this frame justice. The ribbon looks a little pink but is not at all...it is beautiful!


All of the ribbons on this frame are luxurious!!

If you are looking for something elegant and neutral then this one is for you!

This frame is full of rich colored ribbons...
More butterflies....LOVE!

I only have one cross tassel listed right now. I will definitely be making more. I will also be making more rooster tassels too. I will say though... I don't have a whole lot left!!

In my last post I mentioned I was looking for a chair for my workroom. Well, I found one at T.J. Maxx for $30! It had some scratches on it, but nothing major. I looked it over really good in the store and did not find anything else wrong. However, when I got home and turned it over I noticed a crack underneath the chair. (I'm sure that's why it was $30) Anyways, it is still sturdy (as long as I don't gain weight) so I decided to keep it and go ahead and recover the bottom with a colorful plaid I have had in my closet for 6 years!!
It turned out really cute! Next project is the piano bench. I accidentally got hot glue all over it. I have always liked these miniature green houses (terrariums). I was walking through Wal-mart yesterday and spotted this one for $20. I am going to put something live in it, any suggestions? The little plant beside it is real and is doing well...I usually don't have much luck with real plants, but thought I would give some a try.
I showed you my table the other day, but found some really cute napkin rings at Pier 1. Love the little jewel in the center of the flower.
I do have a few changes coming to my kitchen soon. I will be anxious to show you when they arrive!!
Have a great week!!

Kim said...

Your new frames are so beautiful and elegant Kristen. I love the fabric you chose for your chair too. I may have to run to Walmart to see if mine has one of those terraniums (sp?). I love those too. So what do you have planned in that pretty kitchen of yours?? Don't keep us in suspense too long!
xoxo,
Kim

Hi Kristen,
Your frames are lovely. You really know how to combine the right colors and textures together. Oh, and your chair turned out great. The plaid was the perfect touch.

As far as your Wal-Mart find goes, maybe you can try an herb garden. I did that last year with basil and chives and they grew great in the kitchen near the window.

Can't wait to see your changes, how exciting! XOXO ~Liz

Everything is just lovely, Kristen! I love the frames you did with the added tassel. Love your terrarium. Violets or primula's might be nice; even little ferns.

Gypsy Heart said...

Beautiful ~ as usual! The ribbons you use are totally gorgeous. Will be anxious to see what changes are going on in your kitchen.

Have a great week!

Paula said...

Those frames are sure to sell in no time!

I love your new chair and the fabric that you used to recover it.

Jen S. said...

You are very talented! I'm pretty new to your blog, and am really enjoying it! I love your frames...they're so gorgeous!
Hope you have a great day :)

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

You have really outdone yourself with those frames Kristen...they are GORGEOUS! I love the ones with the tassels!

Every time I visit here I find something else to shop for! I need the napkin rings and that little terrarium...just darling! Your new chair is perfect for your space with the new fabric...love it too! I have some work to do in my kids hang out room...still need to paint the desk and the back of the bookcases...you have inspired me!

Such pretty frames Kristen. I love mine and think of you each time I walk by it. I really like the addition of the tassel too that you are showing.

Such pretty plaid fabric on your new chair. What a difference new fabric makes!
Are you about ready to head off for market? It seems weird for me not to be going this year.

Hello Kristen,

Your new frames are fabulous! I especially like the ones with the tassles. I also like the cross tassle and look forward to seeing more of them as well as the roosters you mentioned. I marked your esty shop as one of my favs.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Oh Kristen...that first frame with the tassel...girl, you must have had me on your brain....it is so gorgeous and all my colors!
Love what you did with that chair!!

Lynn said...

Beautiful frames! Love the plaid seat on the chair. Herbs in a terraium is a great way to have them fresh right in your kitchen.

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen all of the new frames are beautiful. I only wish I had room to display more. LOL!

The terrarium is so cute. I can't wait to see what you put in it.

LOVE the chair fabric. Precious!

Melissa said...

Beautifully done Kristen! Are you self taught in your frames and tassels?

Many Blessings,
Melissa

PS - I'm really looking forward to seeing your kitchen!
