Last Minute Gift?

Are you looking for a last minute gift idea?  I can't take credit for this idea but I sure was happy to receive it as a gift!  My dear friend Audrey brought over this fabulous basket last week.  I thought, "Great, A bottle of wine and some wine glasses, always a nice gift"  

Right?  Well on closer inspection I spotted a couple of pieces of chalk inside one of the glasses tied up with pretty ribbon.  Hmmmm...

I picked up one of the glasses and saw that the bottom of the stem had been painted in black chalkboard paint.  Brilliant!  If you are tired of the wine charms and just want something more current and "now"  this is the thing to do!  I'm giving her full credit but she says not to as she got the idea on Pinterest (something I am having fun with and still trying to navigate thru). 

Aren't they just too cute?  Think of the fun you could have...

Happy New Year! 

Thank you Audrey for a wonderful gift.  Here's how she did it:

Take your wine glasses and place a piece of tape around the bottom of the stem, dip in chalkboard paint and place on a piece of wax paper to dry.  That's it!  Super Easy!

Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy New Year!  

Leaving you with a picture of my two precious pups Jackson and Summer.  This was the back of our Christmas Card a few years ago designed by my wonderful friend and photographer Kelly at Young Images.

I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Art, Books, Tea.' Your photos are so lovely. I really like the red in your decorations. My daughter is an Interior Designer also, and has her degree in it. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty. I hope to hear from you, and have a Merry Christmas.
