Here are a couple of my latest listings. I didn't notice until I had them listed that they really look nice together! So the one is a tissue holder, it holds a travel size pack of kleenex, and the other one is a 2-pocket card wallet, perfect for your business card or credit cards. They can both be found in my Etsy shop --and if you are interested in getting them both at the same time I'll give you--my super favorite blog friends!!--a 10% off discount! Yup, just put "blog buddy" in the note to seller and I'll send you a new invoice. They are not very expensive in the first place, so that is a pretty good deal!

I've been very drawn to the pink/aqua color scheme, and I'm seriously thinking about re-doing my kitchen in those colors! (shhhh--don't tell my hub!). Right now the kitchen is basically pale yellow walls with red and white as the accessories--mostly vintage chickens. It would be a big change and I'd have to hunt down all new knick knacks and accessories--doesn't that sound horrible? LOL I know that my hub is going to say "What about all the great chicken things you have collected?" Well, I could just pack them away, and when I tire of the pink/aqua I could haul them out again and they will seem like brand new to us! Right? right?.... It's just that we painted the staircase in that pretty aqua-ish blue, and it looks so pretty--and now it kinda clashes with the kitchen. OK--have I talked myself into it yet? *GRIN* I've been mulling this over for the last month or so--and then I was reading through Angela's blog and she showed a pic of her kitchen and it just made me drool! That was the clincher! Thanks a lot Ang! Now, how am I going to break it to Mark?

Hi Karen! I received my ever so sweet bird bi-fold wallet! I have been getting big time compliments as I pass out my business cards. Thanks so much! I just love it!!

Hi Ang--thanks!! Yup--it is roaming around in my head! and we all know THAT can't be good, lol!!

I'll bet your sponge painted butterfly kitchen looked good at the time you did it. Our tastes change so much, and our homes are in a constant state of growing and changing--just like we are.

It's all good :-D.

Thanks Amy!! I'm so glad that you like it! I enjoyed making it for you.

AND--thank YOU for all the absolutely gorgeous tags! I am blown away! I actually used one of them today (the purple one with the little pale blue flower) on top of an order I sent out that I packed in a purple box, then I tied it all up with a blue ribbon and bow--it looked so pretty!!

Smiles! Karen
