Here are a couple of favorites I'll have up on my etsy store today! Hope you like them.
I Love Paisley! Oo La La! Isn't this an eye catcher? I love this hat box. It's 14"s in diameter and will be up on etsy soon! May want to jump quick. This one's going to go fast!
This red fringe beauty will dress up any room. It's 8" in diameter and 8" high. This fancy lady will hold plenty of your odds and ends... sure to spruce up any space.
Here's another beauty. She's mine forever! I love this sweetheart. She's the inspiration behind Pretty Organized. We're working toward paying off the adoption of our two beauties- picture of our 18 month old is on a different computer... I'll show her later. All sales go toward that end.
Here are a few more boxes that will be on etsy.
Oh, by the way... Nester invited me to sit down at her table! (see past posts) She really is as dear as her blogging voice leads you to believe. I'm so grateful to her for her help and friendship. Thank you to all of you Nestingplace Faithfuls who have given me a chance and checked me out.
Please come back tomorrow.. I'll be posting Part two of Where real people stash their stuff!
Here's the kitchen table taken over by Halloween Costumes and Boxes... It's hard to achieve a Pretty Palace on a Saturday with 6 kids running around the house.
A few of my "in the works" creations- nowhere near finished.
Look! Pretty Organized next to the Nester!...
Ooo we look SOO good together! I wonder if she'll be my friend.. I feel a little like the new kid at school looking for a place to sit for lunch.. she's part of the cool crowd... hope she asks me to sit down with her!! Okay, Okay I know you perfectionists and home decor buffs noticed my bird cage flaunting it's 1980's toll painted floral design... I got it for free and have the supplies to cover that "crafty era" eye soar. .. I'll post it soon. Hmmm... that finial on top would be a great place for a tassel? Better visit the Nesters store after pay day.
We're going to find out, "Where real people stash their stuff." We all have a hiding spot. I'll be looking for creative hiding places in a few including my own over the weekend and I'll have pictures of flashy places to "stash" even if you're low on cash.
Let me know you're favorite stashing place. Best place wins a hand decorated Pretty Organized bookmark!
Along with my fabulous Pretty Organizers, I'm offering Letters from Santa sent from the North Pole! When you order these letters they will have a place for inputing your childs name, toy wish, siblings name, achievement and a pets name... so the letter will be written specifically for your child. My letters are unique beacuse each of them contain a message from Santa about the True Meaning and reason for Christmas.. our Savior. Santa also encourages him/her to give service during this season. This is a great way to make this Christmas memorable for your child. Keep visiting my blog... and watch for our website to come up online: www.NorthPoleSecretary.com (hopefully Mr. Organized will have it up before next weekend!
Okay, organized blogging time over. Back to painting. I have 3 shows and an etsy store I'm supplying. My hands are covered in paint and my grass is no longer green... Ooops! Sorry honey. Thanks to all you great moms... and not yet moms:)
"Nester" for her inspiration and encouragement to let some of her best loved flock migrate to my warm south west Palace for a day.... please know dear birdies that you are welcome back any time and I'd love to have a few winter over a little longer.
Of note: This little Home-made Holiday booked me 3 boutiques in 1 day, allowed me to offer my services for a much needed charity silent auction to be held this weekend (see info below), and I'm trying to get quotes to a hat maker in Santa Monica to be their "hat box designer" who knew the market was so ready for
PrettyOrganized boxes? Thank you for your feedback! I am so grateful.
The proceeds I make are going directly to pay off the adoptions of 2 of our beautiful girls. Your interest has really been encouraging to me. Thank you.
So, without further ado, adeiu, a deu??? The winner of the 3 custom nesting hatboxes is.... DRUM ROLL............................................
Congratulations. If you go to my Etsy store and click on the contact me button (to the right) you can let me know your colors, contact info and where to send them!
To everyone else... I'm trying to visit all your blogs. There is so much talent out there. I need pointers from all of you html visually gifted bloggers on how in the world to make my heading look like a real banner and not just an imported family pic..
By the way...the Etsy store is going to have a few more items soon.. my hands are covered in spray paint (wedding ring needs a good scrub!) and I have red spray paint boogers.... can I say that on the web? Some boxes even have fringe.... Oooooo.....and finials.... AHhhhhhhh.... and toile....Ohhhhh!
I will be offering a large 14" hatbox in the Silent Auction being held for a very ill sweetheart named Zoe. There are tons of things to bid on and I encourage you to check out my box as well as the other offerings. Proceeds will go directly to Zoe's parents to help cover living and medical expenses.
You're all invited back now ya' hear? We're going on an eye candy adventure of Pretty Organized and decorated homes in the south west... follow me, subscribe to me, Mr. Linky me, tell your friends because you don't want to miss it! Monday is the big Day!
This chest came to us for free. I think it had been painted 5 times before I got it. It was beyond another paint job so I wallpapered it with craft paper... Modpodge.
Now the building supplies are PrettyOrganized.
They go great in the bathroom to hide those "unsightlies" TP, Feminine supplies, make up, hair dryers, first aid, and if you're trying to keep the kids out of it... fingernail polish. (I had a long cleaning session with my carpet a few months back because Mr. Nobody who frequents our house often spilled it in my bedroom.)
Aren't they great! Okay.. enough said. Shameless plug over.
Off to take care of kiddos and figure out how to make this blog look a little more Palatial than it does now:)
