Thanks for all of the kind comments and emails about our article! And a big THANKS to the Fabulous Fifi for working with us on it!!
If you get a chance, please leave Fifi a comment and tell her you liked it too!
If you haven't seen Carol Spinski's (of Raised in Cotton) creations in our article for Romantic Country yet, here is a peek.
And if you've ever read this blog, you know that if I make one of something, I make a BUNCH. I just get going and can't stop!
So in honor of Carol's cute as a button idea, and how much fun we made creating a table scape around them for the article, I want to give one away as a gift to you.
This is also my 400th post! So a gift is doubly appropriate, isn't it?
this bottle is sold, thanks
I will count all comments all month for this give away, and they will also count toward my regular monthly treat, too.
And since I have quite a few of these glittery little punkins, I will be listing them in my Etsy shop soon to sell also.
For now, they will be for sale through this blog, for $18 each for punkin head bottle and $22 for the raven.
the raven is sold, thanks!
No two are alike, each is hand made. The bottles are OLD, (f you remember, I bought them at an auction and experimented in how to get them cleaned up, denture tablets worked pretty good).
The Raven does not come off the top of the bottle, and the pumpkin with the purple flower is permanently attached too. The other gourds are simply perched on top, with indentations in their bases to stay in place.
I used lots of vintage goodies and some fall type pretties on each of them.
Postage will be Priority Mail for $4.80, in the USA. If you'd like a bottle, please leave a comment about which one you want. And remember that each comment is also an entry to win one!
Oh, but wait! There is more! Carol also came up with the idea to make these charming crowns. Some were used on statuary, some on pumpkins, and the rest as votive holders.
I wrote a how-to up in the article for making the crown votive, if you'd like to make your own.
Or maybe you'd like to win a kit to make your own??
In the meantime, I have a few $10 kits to sell. ($2.50 postage in the US)
They include precut and painted and glittered screens, trims for the points of the crown and the base as well as frippery's and doodads to make the tiara special.
This one, "crowning Glory," is painted golden.
These two should go as a pair, I just think they look too pretty together to split up, so I will sell them two for $18, so they can stay together!this pair has sold, thanks!
Wouldn't they be lovely around white candles on your Christmas buffet?
I call this set "Snow Queen". It is silver glittered screen with pearly accents to glue on.
And remember, I am having my Sweet September giveaway too.
all comments, on all posts count
eek! I need to go, my shows are starting!!
PS- I have a "bonus" giveaway of one of our Romantic Country inspired creations that will go to a Silver Bella participant. If you are attending Silver Bella this year, please mention that in your comment and I will enter you into the seperate drawing.
