Finally a Winner!!

I am so sorry that it took me so long to draw a number!! We finally got snow in Colorado. It closed down my office Thursday, and again today. We have 18 inches of snow at my house!! I love being snowed in!! I had my son draw a number, and it was number 1. I decided to disqualify her, because she is my sons girlfriend. She is getting one for Easter!! The second number he drew was 17. So, the winner is: The Victorian Parlor. I will send you an email so I can get your address and send the Loving Cup to you. Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. Have a wonderful day, I will have more stuff listed in my Etsy tomorrow.

Loving Cups!!

Aren't these sooo cute?? They are lovingly refereed to as "Loving Cups".....I like that!! I will have them listed in my Etsy shoppe tomorrow.
They are made with German Glass Glitter, which will tarnish over time. I added a sweet flower, and beautiful ribbon that I purchased at Tinsel Trading in New York. They have sheet music and french paper on them. OOH LA LA!!
I am using some at my Easter Table. I think they would be so adorable on each plate, a little gift for my guests to take home!!!!

I hope you have a wonderful evening!!

A Mini Vacation!!

My Husband and I are taking a little vacation!! We headed up to our condo in Beaver Creek Friday evening, and we are staying until Thursday!! The weather here has been interesting. Yesterday it was almost 50, and this morning we woke up to 8 inches of new snow. I love it!! I don't ski, but my husband does. I have spent my time reading, looking at beautiful Blogs, and working on a Christmas stocking for our 2 year old Granddaughter. I am a bit behind in the stocking department. To date I have made 11 of them, but still need to complete this one. Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful relaxing week.

Fete et Fleur shoes

I decided to give myself an extra special treat, and I purchased a pair of amazing "Shoes" from the unbelievably talented Nancy of Fete et Fleur designs. I have admired her shoes for quite some time, and when I saw these fabulous Pink shoes, I knew that they had to be mine!! Please, check out her blog, you will be blown away by the beauty that she creates. Trust me, if you treat yourself to a pair, you will not be disappointed. You will wish that you could slip them on, and dance the night away!! Nancy, thanks for letting me show off these beauties. I LOVE them!! I decided that they went perfectly with the incredible crown that Holly of Hollydoodledesigns made me. I just knew that I had to make a display box that was as beautiful as these two pieces. I bought a football display case, painted it pink, added feet to it, and then put as many rows of Dresdens on it as I could possibly fit. I think it turned out amazing, don't you??
Now, I just need to decide where to put this beauty. I want it on my nightstand so that every morning when I see it I start the day off with a smile. Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by. XXOO - Valarie
