Pink Sweetness

Baby sweetness in this cute shoe, has been given a new life and purpose. It's wonderful to think that some beautiful and Innocent child once walked in this shoe. It warms my heart and makes me smile. It's a happy day.

Believe me when I say that I am trying very hard to learn to paint my own roses, but it's not coming easy to me. I have lots of respect for those that have mastered this art, but somehow I was not born with the painting gene....not at all. Therefore, pretty rose decals will have to suffice.

Carol from the Polka Dot Closet has a tutorial on how to make your own decals and I might have to give that a try until I finally master my own roses. I will not give up, that is for sure. Until then, I think the decals are beautiful and they do just what I want them too.

So cute for a new born or simply setting on a shelf in a special place.

The same can be said for this petite set of glass shakers. Re-purposed into a cottage, shabby and very chic display for any home. Great for gifts too.

If you like to go to the flea markets or garage sales, keep in mind all the sweetness that you can create by thinking "outside the box."

These pretties and more can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

Just Listed On Someplace In Thyme~Snowpeople

I don't know what it is with me lately, but I am lovin all things French and in particular, snowpeople.
This is for a set of three, all with a Paris theme and glass glitter. I thought they came out so sweet and just perfect for hanging on the tree.

This is a combination of French and cottage with lots of handmade roses, vintage lace and ribbons.
I think these are my favorites for sure. I didn't think I could love snowpeople as much as this. It must be something in the air.

These are not made of a heavy cardboard, but are made of wood and painted, then decorated.
If you would enjoy seeing how I made them, please check out my personal blog Someplace In Thyme.
I hope to get these listed in my shop this evening. Have a great day!
