Christmas Ribbons & Treasures...

New borders for my Etsy store!
I was going to list them yesterday...
I was distracted...
Playing!
Time got away from me, as it often does
this time of year... so many ideas... so little time!
I'll show you some of the fun in my next post~
Less than perfect is JUST PERFECT for me.
I treasure these little square style spice containers...
Found on Ebay~ less than $2 each!
When I roam into an antique store these are the
little gems I search for... especially white with blue.
How I love flow blue...
Little containers filled with buttons.
The ones without covers are filled with feathers.
Our kitty cats sit and look~
When they see a single feather...
Do they REALLY SEE an entire bird?
They are indoor cats~
Perhaps the hunter in them is satisfied by
chewing up my favorite feathers...
No store-bought toy will do.
Even more Etsy goodies later!
I'm working on a special watercolor...
For a VERY patient friend~
Wishing you sunshine & smiles!

Love the borders, Michelle - and all the little containers. "Less than perfect" is code for "the very best" in my book. Hugs.

I love any type of small container, from little glass bottles to ceramic trinket boxes. I love to find them in the Goodwill and at Yard Sales.

The spice containers are adoreable1
