Grand Opening Of “Blue Creek Boutique”And A Giveaway !!!

 

First of all, a great big thank you goes to Al, Alex, and Caroline for being so supportive as I have struggled with my laptop for a month making this happen!!!  I wanted to throw up my hands and quit a couple of times.  Fortunately, I have some ‘stubborn genes’ that just wouldn’t allow me to do that.
I am very excited and blessed today, as I kick off  the opening of “Blue Creek Boutique”.  

I finally made buttons!! I am not sure what took me so long. It was fun.

But you know what???  You are the ones who are the most important to me.  And I am so glad that you are here!  Thanks, guys -  I appreciate you.!



The Give-Away:

1.  Joy Pillow -  It has a hidden zipper on the bottom – down/feather filled pillow form - burgundy silk -gold embroidery - Joy hand painted in metallic gold (the joy is from me!)
2.  Adorable glittery snowman – lovin’ his ruffled scarf, skinny hat, & jingle bell buttons!
3. The most delicious “Stella Mare” cranberry scented  soap.

 



He wanted a shot by himself!!



Okay…that’s enough!!!  It’s Joy’s turn.



She is a cutie!



Hmmm…can I enter my own give-away?   She looks pretty here! 



Stella wants her time in the limelight too!!  She smells yummy!

I am linking up to lots of parties  throughout the week.  I will activate the links as party time approaches.   Thanks to each of these lovely hosts.


metamorphosis monday
Met Monday” at “Between Naps On The Porch” is always a super fun party.  So many people there with lots of inspiration.

 



junkin' button
Since so much of the merchandise at “Blue Creek Boutique” was found while I was antiquing and junking, I am attending “Junkin’ Monday” @ “Nice And Easy Antiques”.

 

 

Its So Very Creative 

I am also participating, for the first time, in “It’s So Very Creative”  at “It’s So Very Cheri”.

 


diy @ soft place to land
Tuesday is “DIY Day” at “A Soft Place To Land”.  I hope that creating the website myself, qualifies.  If anyone has questions about the site, I will be glad to share my info.

 



show and tell fridays
Later this week,  I will link to the “Show and Tell Friday” shindig at “My Romantic Home”.  Cindy’s blog is wonderful.  If you love pink, shabby, etc., you must go. And, of course, the things that you will see at the party are fantastic too.

 

Alabamas bloggers BestPostOfTheWeek copy 

Alabama Bloggers” hosts “Best Post of The Week” on Friday. I will be joining this Southern fun!

 

 

DIY Show Off  Show and Tell surprise

There is a surprise party over at “A Soft Place To Land”.  “Show & Tell” allows us to show off our blogs,  favorite post, websites, etc.  This should be fun!

 


Sat. Night Special  Junky Interiors
Saturday brings the “Saturday Night Special” over at “Funky Junk Interiors”. It’s always fun to attend a week-end party.


Please know that I appreciate each one of you.  Let’s all remember to include each other in our daily prayers.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't know what I love the most. I love the pillow, because you put the "JOY" in the pillow. I love the snowman, because he's so cute and has such character. And I love the soap because cranberry is my favorite in candles, so I imagine it would be my favorite in soaps also. I'm just giddy with excitement!
