    Monogramed Towels

    I love monograms. It’s a new passion of mine. So lucky for me my sister gave me some monogramed towels for my birthday. Even more lucky for me my niece-in-law is the one who monogramed them! Get ready for this: She has a monogram machine!!!! Let the heavenly choir sing! My sister gave me two towels. One you see here, and the other I carry in my tennis bag.  In my monogramed high it occurred to me that these would make the perfect gift. Birthdays, hostess gifts… gifts fit for a Queen. January has three Queenly birthdays so I thought that these monogramed towels, along with some awesome hand soaps, would…

Rox came up with this super fun gift idea – a Fragrant Jewels Candle.  (not getting paid to…

    Pretty Little Boxes

    At some point someone in my family ordered a couple thousand  dozen cigar boxes. I’m not sure why or what they planned to use them for but we still have them. LOTS  of them! Talk about a hot mess… After about a year of them being in the Hubs office in a great big box, I decided they weren’t doing anyone any good and something had to be done with them. I mean I’ve seriously been dusting a box of boxes! Crazy much? I took three different sizes, got out my paints, scrapbooking paper scraps, and glue and went to work.  After giving each box a coat of paint, I then…
