A Little Birdie Told Me...
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now, without further ado, we move on to thinking of Christmas. Well, if you are in retail, you have been thinking of Christmas for a long time already, but you know what I mean!Anyway, I love little birds in nests. I think I got that from my mother because she did too. So, I decided to make some pretty little glittered bird ornaments for Our Cottage Garden since it tis the season. They have lots of pretty vintage seam binding, pink roses for a nest with French script stamped on the petals, and a little tinsel "cage". I thought these turned out really cute, so I had to make one for myself, natch.
Then,I had a bunch of orphan teacups, some with saucers, some without, and so in an effort to deacquire, I decided to make candles out of them and sell some. The best part is, Mr. French Laundry likes making candles, so he poured these for me and I foofed up the ones that didn't have saucers with some vintage seam binding and vintage millinery. These are also available on Our Cottage Garden. I was pleased with how they turned out as well. I think I'm going to give them to the kids' teachers for Christmas.
Now, are you ready for what the little birdie told me??? Shhhhhh, this is only for my blogging buddies (if you are reading this, guess what? You're my blogging buddy. YAY!)...if you go over to Our Cottage Garden and purchase either one of these items, type in your Paypal comments "BLOGGER BUDDY" and you will be refunded $2 for each one you purchase. Now this ONLY applies to the teacup candles and the pink birdie ornaments and it will be handled as a refund to your Paypal payment, but it is my little gift to you guys for being so supportive and leaving such nice comments. This offer is good now until MIDNIGHT Eastern time on Cyber Monday (November 29th).
SO, pretty pink ladies, after you go on over to Our Cottage Garden and check out our treasures, pop on over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound and check our the other Pink Saturday blog entries.
Until next time,
