Can you believe summer is almost over? It has been a BUSY one around here! Below are just a few of the different things I have made for the most amazing shoppers anywhere!
I want to thank EVERYONE for your wonderful response to my little business! Your sweet comments mean so much to me and I appreciate you all so much!
It is a big week around here for us, our third grandchild will be born this Friday and we can't WAIT! For you that know my daughter Rachel, you know that it has been a bumpy road to get this little miss Bree Leighton here safe and sound. We thank God so much for blessing us with her, we raise her up to honor Him and love Jesus. Life is good!!!
If you are like me, you see lots of things that you love, but don't have a clear idea of what in the world you would do with them when you get them home! I have a very strong personal policy that if I like it enough, there IS a place for it somewhere, drives my hubs crazy! It has been requested by some of you for me to show some of my decorating tips, so I decided to try something different. On occasion, I am going to show you all what I do with some of the things I offer and maybe give you some ideas too!
This is our upstairs bathroom, it belongs to our 11 year old son. The walls are painted a robins egg blue with a metallic silver glaze. Yes, that is a mirror-on-mirror that you see! When we built the house, I hated the standard builder grade mirrors in the bathrooms and unfortunately, they are hung with some sort of adhesive that will probably survive armageddon! So, I did the next best thing and hung a mirror right over the existing one! Pretty clever, huh? I would LOVE to take the credit for this ingenious idea, but I saw it in a magazine a long, long time ago! Love, love, love the look!
You have seen these before, I made this tray for him to keep all his "toiletries" on, he is wearing cologne now, isn't that cute?!
Customized trays $30.00
I am ALL about DIY projects, if I can't find what I am looking for, I will make it myself! I made this shower curtain when I couldn't find one masculine enough for this bathroom, it was really easy. Hint: Hang your shower curtain right below the ceiling line, it looses some of that standard shower look and is much more dramatic! This canvas has the verse "Sons are a heritage from the Lord" Psalms 127:3
Customized canvas $25.00
Funny story, when Jace saw this, he asked me, "Mom, why are guns a heritage to the Lord?"! What's wrong son, having a hard time reading that fancy Old World script?!!
I hope you picked up a few helpful hints and some new ideas. I definitely enjoyed having you, have a blessed day and come back soon!
Welcome to Scarlett Boutique! My experience over the years in trying to find fun, unique, affordable gifts and things for my home has been difficult and frustrating at times. I have always been convinced that I was born to be rich, but something got mixed up along the way! However, I truly believe that you can still have fabulous and gorgeous things to make your home the showplace you long for even if you weren't born into royalty or married into money! My course of action has always been if you want it bad enough, figure out how to make it yourself! So, after much urging from my family and friends, I decided to create ScarlettBoutique to share some of my creations with you so that you can share them with the ones you love!
The name wasn't hard, I have three reasons...I adore the color red, my favorite movie of all time is "Gone With the Wind"(I am as southern as the day is long), and last but certainly never least, it represents the scarlett blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is my Savior and the One I adore most! If I have one ounce of talent, it came straight from Him!
So, that's a little about me, thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something that you love, something that inspires, something that celebrates and something that always reminds you that:
Every good and perfect gift is from above...James 1:17
