Birthday Party

We had a little surprise birthday party for my niece on Thursday.
I fixed some of her favorites along with some new stuff 
--- Chocolate covered Strawberries ---
--- Chicken Salad Sandwiches ---
--- Neiman Marcus Dip & Crackers---
(this is a favorite wherever I take it!)
We also had fresh pineapple (one of her very favorite things) and grapes.
For dessert we had Pumpkin Scones and Coffee with Pumpkin Spice creamer!

Handmade Gifts

Today I'm sharing the selection of gifts I made for my niece whose birthday was yesterday.
A custom made pillow for her living room
 Handmade foaming soap container and with homemade foaming soap inside!
One of the grubby coffee candles from my shop, a handmade doily, and handpainted wooden bowl.
Since she decorates in black and tan (primitive style) I custom made her grubby cinnamon buttons with black fabric (that matches her pillow!)
Come back tomorrow to see the food at the little surprise party I threw for her.

Cinnamon Buttons

I love the way my Grubby Cinnamon Stars turned out and wanted to make some matching buttons.
These are great for adding to your Primitive decor either in potpourri mixes or just tucked among your treasures!
As an added bonus: They smell good too!!
These are available (in sets of five) in my Etsy shop.

Nesting with pine-cones and cinnamon sticks
The leftover stars are available in my Etsy Shop in sets of four.
Perfect for adding to you Primitive Potpourri or mixing in with other Prim decor.

Prim Stitchery Sampler #2

Here's another Prim Stitchery I finished up while on vacation.
I drew and stitched my design on coffee stained muslin, and added the gingham fabric and lace to the side before framing.
This piece is available in my Etsy shop today!
