Friday Shopping with a Twist~


Here we are, back to another Make Mine Pink Friday Shopping with a twist. This weeks theme is Birds of a Feather. Visit HERE to my MMP boutique to view a few treasures I have to offer in this weeks shopping fun. While there, you can visit the other many shoppes too, participating today.

One special item I have included is a beautiful vintage LANE box, used many years ago as a salesman sample for cedar chests. It has no scent, but simple a small version of the chests used so many years ago. This was given to me by our dear Marydon from Blushing Rose Too,to create with. It was so much fun painting a beautiful Wren to compliment our theme for today. Pink roses finish this design for a little keepsake box that might make a great gift.




With Christmas decorating and shopping just around the bend, I also brought back one of my wooden mittens, hand cut and painted with a little chickadee on one side and rose on the back.


These are just a couple treasures offered today in my MMP boutique, and as you might imagine, my studio is a busy place right now and I love every minute. We had rain too, and you know I love to be in the studio designing when it is raining. Temps are a bit cooler too, and oh boy, time to be energized and creative!!

Next week, I have another finished project to share that I told you about this past Spring. Remember the vintage hutch I painted creamy ivory and distressed? Remember it had a top mirror that I have wanted to add stain glass to? Well, I got it finished and happy with the details. I hope to take a few pics when the light is right.

Thank you for stopping by today. It is always special to have you visit. Have a wonderful Friday and great weekend.
Till next time, Blessings always, Celestina Marie

Such sweet new treasures you've created, Celeste. I'm still so happy that we got to talk for sooo long yesterday! Pure Heaven for me ~ gosh, we should talk more often!

Love the little Lane sampler cedar chest. Daddy gave me two of those when he was working for a furniture store. One has an American flag on it!

Hope you & L are having a great weekend together!
