Sweet Tweet Swap

If you sent me en e-mail to be in the swap, and have not heard from me, please e-mail me again at elee@srt.com
Can you say Sweet Tweet Swap, three times? lol!

Spring has arrived in my neck of the prairie, and the birds are busy building their nests. In honor of the arrival of my feathered friends, I am happily hosting a swap! Here are the guidelines:

1. Include at least one handmade item with a bird theme. Items can be made in any craft, or art style and can be purchased, or made by you.
2. Include at least one "sweet" item, (your interpretation).
3. Items should follow a bird, nest, egg, or Spring theme.
4. Swap box should have a $20.00 value, (before shipping).
5. After the long winter many of us have had, please don't be a swap deadbeat! If you sign up, you are obligated to follow through in a timely manner. We don't want any sad faces in the midst of our swap.
6. I will contact you with your partner on May 1st, and items are to be mailed by May 15th.

PLEASE e-mail me through my sidebar (elee@srt.com). Include your blog address, and mailing address. I will have a cutoff number, so don't miss out! ALSO, let me know if you're willing to ship internationally.

Feel free to grab my swap button for your blog. I would appreciate the advertising.

If you are new to swaps, and want more information, e-mail me with questions.

Blessings, Ele


Every girl loves a little bling, but the bling needs to be stylish, elegant and not over done. Jamie from Simply Me Art knows exactly what I'm talking about. Jamie makes gorgeous jewelry, as well as these swarovski adorned flip flops.

So, imagine my excitement when I found out that I won her giveaway. Look how Jamie wrapped the package; pink and black seam binding, an aged tag, AND A PAIR OF EARRINGS!

Below are the flippers that I received, (I got to pick the color I wanted). The swarovski crystals are amazing and yes, Jamie, I'm sparkling every step of the way!

Craft Tip:
Jamie also has a tutorial on her blog, here.

Time for pedicures ladies. Thank Goodness!
Thanks Jamie....I love it all!

Spring Redecor

A little Spring

in my kitchen. A yellow potted plant from my son's girlfriend brings in the sunshine. Finally, I can see out my kitchen window, unlike a couple of weeks ago, here.

I took the plunge and started redecorating the formal dining room. Because of the dark raspberry, painting primer is the first step.

What is the final paint plan, you ask? I wasn't sure when I started painting.
Here's the scoop-
I want the dining room to coordinate with the sitting room below.
I do not "shop" for inspiration in a store.
I happen upon inspiration. I stumble into inspiration at flea markets, auctions, or (my favorite) gifts, (like the silver tea set in the picture above).
I'd like the dining room to coordinate with this picture that I found at an auction a few years ago.
I'd also like to bring in textures and shades of shells I found in the Caribbean.

Along with the shells and silver, I have added the soft blue from the sitting room. I also decided upon a taupe color. Which walls, what color? Fabric? Recovering chairs? Drapes? Any ideas ladies? Those decisions will come later. For now....
back to painting primer.
Blessings, Ele

Coach wrislets Sales

Blue Birds

 Spring is in my mind and flew gracefully onto my paper.
Shades of robins egg blue, coppery brown and white are put together in a simple style. Some of the tags have millinery flowers, some aren't quite yet in bloom. What do you do with these tags? Use tags in place of a card. Tie a tag on a gift. Hang on an Easter tree. Give several as a gift, or just one tied to a little treat.
Don't forget to write a sweet message on the back.
Spring you are a darling. Please come soon.
Spring blessings to you,
