Sachet Just Listed

Pretty and Romantic, this strawberry sachet is filled with dried lavender buds grown in the U.S.A.
Made with cotton that showcasing lovely pink roses, I decorated the top with ribbons and florals. I just happened to have a lovely piece of netting with faux pearls and sequins, so I also used that for the front. There is also a vintage glass sweet and smells good too!! :)
This and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

With Christmas behind me, I find my website depleted and so it's time to go back to work. My hubby had to work today, the kids are grown and on their own so off to the studio I go........
I have begun a new series of what I am calling my "Romantic Pocket Sachets." The name comes from the fact that I will include a pocket somewhere on the front to encase a love note, reminder or gift tag. Each sachet will come with it's own matching tag. The sachet above is the first in the series.

 Handmade paper roses along with faux pearls and some silks grace the front of the pocket, along with some handmade vintage lace.

 Sweet matching gift tag. This is now available on my website Someplace In Thyme.

I also added a sweet set of four faux cookies, decorated with roses, posies and also some faux pearls.

So pretty displayed on a special plate or perfect for gift giving too.

We have all heard the saying, "good things come in small packages," so I decided to make a few mini ornaments and I think they are just as cute as can be.
A set of three mittens, painted a creamy white with pink on the cuff, sugared with German glass glitter and decorated with paper roses.

I think one of these would also look perfect on a gift package or for a teachers gift too!

Speaking of a gift for teacher, or maybe a hostess gift, how cute is this set of mini snowmen. I probably should call them snow people with their pink and white paper roses....HA! These are ornaments and have ribbon hangers, but they are only about 3 or 4" high. They come in a vintage jello mold which I have painted a beautiful pink and then added some snowy glitter. They make a great gift or decoration for a small tree too.

Although this sweet trio of Santa boots are not minis, I wanted to include them in this post. Two pink and two white make up the set. All are painted, iced and then sugared with German glass glitter for a holiday sparkle. Decorated with roses that have been handmade from paper. What a lovely hostess gift as well as hanging on your tree.

Each boot lovely made and decorated by me. I hope you enjoy a peek at what I have been up to this past week.

If you happen to be seeing this post today, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. My wish for you is safety, warmth and the love of family along with some great tasting food!! Lets all be grateful this season for our friendships and what we have been blessed with.

New Holiday Creations

This sweet pair of snowmen are just so shabby and sweet. Wood, painted, sugared and then decorated just in time for the holidays.

I love creating these little goodies for you. I am trying my hand at painting roses and have been doing quite a bit of practicing. I hope to unveil my talents very soon......I will keep you posted.
These sweethearts and more can be found at my shop Someplace In Thyme.

How about a slice of yummy goodness? This is the sweet delight that just made it into my website. She comes with two little petite vanilla and one chocolate.

Handmade paper roses and some faux pearls too. What more could a girl ask for?

Lots of lovely holiday bling and no calories, fat or sugar!! That sounds like a little slice of heaven to me. HA!
This is available on my website Someplace In Thyme.

Oh my, aren't these little guys just the cutest gingerbread men/women you have ever seen? I adore these sweet decorations.....and they are pink too!!

Each one measures 8" hanging and is decorated with german glass glitter.

I think they would make the perfect gift for teachers, or for decorating your packages too.
These and more can be found at Someplace In Thyme.

A beautiful china dessert plate re-purposed onto a glass candle holder and there you have it.....a lovely pedestal to display something special like a faux cupcake.

Just look at all that yummy goodness! Pretty handmade paper roses and pansies too. The plate has pink roses and sagey green leaves. Very shabby and very sweet.

This and more can be found this week on my website, Someplace In Thyme. I hope you enjoy this latest creation. More coming right up.

I haven't met a person that didn't love a geat cookie!! These are not only great, but fat free, sugar free and no calories either.
Yep, yummy goodness.

Each cookie has a rose and other sweet posies as well as some mini oval pearls.
Beautiful displayed on a beautiful dessert plate or perfect for gift giving too.

Such yummy goodness, this would also make a wonderful gift.

A trio of yummy faux cookies, decorated and presented to you on a beautiful pedestal plate.
Years ago I was watching an episode of the Carol Duval show on DIY when they had a guest speaker that shared her secret for creating lovely pedestal plates. This is one of those that I created using a gorgeous vintage plate and a glass candle stick.

Pretty faux cookies in my favorite color, yellow and decorated with paper roses and a paper pansy. This one of a kind display would be so pretty in any setting, kitchen, dining room or any room of the home.

Don't you think this looks good enough to eat!!??

Not only is yellow my favorite color, but these cookies look perfect with this lovely plate. These will be available on my website someplace in thyme later today.

A sweet trio of snow people for your holiday decorating. Made of heavy cardboard, these sweeties have been painted, sugared with german glass glitter and decorated......

White paper roses and pink and white roses on the hat, this snow person is the only one of the trio with arms. A white satin ribbon bow at the neck.

This is a snowlady for sure with her faux pearls, pearls around her hat and a ribbon bow. She is a delight and as with the other two, she hangs 10" including the hanger.

These would be adorable on the tree, but thinking outside the box, each one would make a lovely teacher's gift or decoration on a package....very shabby and sweet. I hope you enjoy them, they will be available on my website later today.

Can you believe it's only 54 days until the Christmas Holidays?! I am still pinching myself trying to wrap my head around it. Times goes faster and faster each year.
I have started creating my one of a kind stockings for my website and my etsy shop. I finished this beauty just this morning.
I have tried to find more of this gorgeous fabric, but to no avail. If anyone knows where I can obtain some more, I would appreciate the heads up. SOLD, thank you!!

I don't know how long I have had this beautiful image or where I bought it, but she is just too beautiful for words. The fabric has a texture look to it, similiar to the weave used for cross-stitch. She is so pretty and her hat is just gorgeous. I used a little bit of sparkle on her hat and also around the pearls of her necklace. The image is bordered with a vintage venise lace.

As if the stocking wasn't pretty enough, you have to have some roses and pearls too. I hope you have enjoyed my offering today.
I am working on some large snowmen and hope to have them ready for show this week. To be continued.

My latest holiday tassel is this sweet cupcake. I was lucky to find some ribbon with cupcakes on them as well as striped ribbon in matching colors.
Very festive and would make the sweetest gift too. Yummy enough to want to eat....but you can't!!!

Holiday Tassels

Beautiful and ready to hang on a lamp, peg, armoire or anywhere else you can think of that might just need a little something, something. A gorgeous glass ornament has been given a make over into a gorgeous tassel.

She looks beautiful hanging on the tree also. It's perfect for gift giving too!

What do you do with a sweet little glass house ornament? Give it a new life as a one of a kind tassel!!
Red velvet ribbon loops and some gold too.

As you can see, this looks beautiful on the holiday tree too. These and more available in my etsy shop. Just look for the link on the right side bar.

I bought a new stamp and had to play. I came up with some cute teapot tags and added a sweet silvertone teapot charm to each one.

These are outlined with a sparkle pin and located in my etsy shop.

Thought these would be perfect for the holidays.

Some sparkle and a little green glitter, perfect!
