Denim and Burlap in Winter

I was doing some crafting this weekend and went out to take the burlap bags of the clothesline. Then I wanted to add the denim bunting.  It was just so pretty with the sun coming through the trees. 
I love to hang everything outside.  What a nice combination of light and the color of burlap and the denim against the snow.

Come sail away with me at Christmas in July on Etsy at ilPiccoloGiardino

Some of my favorite things are the beach, 4th of July and Christmas!  Come sail away with me and enjoy the

It's almost time for Christmas in July (CIJ), a time when many Etsy sellers participate in Christmas in July,  Store owners are like little elves busily making and stocking their shelves.  offering special sales, discounts and a chance to get an early start to tackling that list.  Save the date, or dates actually.  From July 11th - July 21st, 2013.  I'll be there at ilPiccoloGiardino. 

Shopping early at sales like CIJ will earn you not only the savings, but the opportunity to get those
giftsthat will not be available come September.  As a savvy shopper, you know there are so
 many products that get snapped up early, it's wise to take advantage and ensure you get what
you want and need.  It's alsoan opportunity to check out different stores showcasing their
 handmade and artisan crafts.

See you there,

Craft idea with paper napkins party favors

For a bridal shower, candy buffet, party favors, bachelorette party. 
Use a unique paper napkin in the theme of your choice.  This napkin was
of a chocolate theme. 

Napkins or serviettes are usually 2 or 3 ply.  Separate the sheets until you
have the original design. 

For a take home basket, cover a paper cup with white glue mixed with water. 

Apply the napkin and trim accordingly. 

For this one, I didn't have any pipe cleaners handy, but to add a handle, just
poke the pipe cleaner through the cup and twist to secure. 

Add a pretty white or color doily inside and put select candy or snacks, homemade
fudge.  For a display table, leave unwrapped.  For take home favors, wrap in clear
basket wrap and tie with a pretty ribbon and your choice of personal tag.
